Overview Features

Below are the specifications and features of Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S7. Even though this device has the most advanced features in the Galaxy S series, it still shares some similarities with the Galaxy S6 in terms of its metallic and glass design which shows very little change from the Galaxy S6.

Display and Build


The Galaxy S7 sports a 5.1 inch SUPER AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution of 1440 X 2560 pixels and pixel density of 577ppi. Yes! 577ppi pixel density, you can now close your mouth. It also features a force touch display with TouchWIZ UI which gives users a more customised interface over the phone. From this display, you get better representation of colours with natural whites and deep blacks, great viewing angles, and users can now get one of the brightest screens on an android device.

This device is made from metal and has a Gorilla Glass 4-coating on the front and rear. It weighs 157g, has a  dimension of 150.9 X 72.6 X 7.7 mm (height * width *depth), and a 7.9 mm thin ultra-slim design. The S7 is protected by IP68 dust and water resistance which means that the device can be immersed for 30 minutes in Upto 1.5m depth of water and it will also be protected against dust that may harm it (Now, you can mistakenly drop your phone in the toilet and all you'll have to worry about is how far you're gonna stick your hand to retrieve it. You have Samsung to thank for that). The Galaxy S7 comes in four colour variants which are black, white, gold and silver.

Processor and OS

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is powered by a 64-bit Exynos 8890 Octa processor which runs at  2.3GHz clocks per cycle and is more energy efficient than the chip in the Galaxy S6. The S7 runs on the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has 4G of RAM that ensures smooth running and impressive responsiveness of the device even while multitasking.The S7 is of two models, where one has 32GB  inbuilt storage and the other has a 64 GB inbuilt storage. Unlike its predecessor that lacked an expandable microSD card slot, both versions of the Galaxy S7 come with a microSD card slot for expanding the storage by up to 200GB .

Camera

Samsung Galaxy S7 features a 12.2MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera with a software-based beauty mode for selfie lovers. This camera has an f/1.7 aperture lens which is slightly wider than the f/1.9 aperture on the S6 and also has a lower resolution than the 16MP on the S6.

Even though the megapixels of the rear camera of the S7 is of a lower resolution than that of the S6, more pixels do not necessarily mean that images with higher quality will be captured since the quality of an image primarily depends of the quality of the pixels, quality of the lens, and the size of the camera sensor. By reducing the resolution (fewer megapixels) of the rear camera, but maintaining the the same size of the sensor, Samsung says each pixel can be larger and larger pixels result in better low-light photos and image quality.

The Galaxy S7 has an optical image stabilization and dual-pixel technology, which means that in low-light conditions the S7 can focus up to four times faster than the S6, and in daylight twice as fast. The S7 is also capable of capturing 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps with dual Video and HDR.

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity of Samsung Galaxy S7 is 3000mAh, an improvement over the 2,550mAh battery in the Samsung Galaxy S6. This battery is non-removable, supports fast charging (83% of charging in just 30 minutes) and fast wireless charging, and can support upto 70 hours of music play, 18 hours of video playback and 24 hours talk time. There's also a feature that allows battery sharing via WIFI enabling users to share the battery of other Samsung devices without using a cable. 

For connectivity, the Galaxy S7 supports 4G and 5G network Connections resulting in faster downloads and better video streaming. Other connectivity options include NFC, wireless charging, and a standard micro USB port for transferring power and data. 

Apps and Games

The Galaxy S7 comes with 25 pre-installed applications which include a heart-rate monitor and the S-Health fitness app.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

Samsung has combined design and usability to make the Galaxy S7 an improvement over the Galaxy S6. Even though the S7 owes much of its design to the S6, its specs and features has made it a credible upgrade from the its predeccesor.

 A RAM size of 4GB on a smartphone device is no child's play considering that some laptops can't even boast of a RAM of that capacity. The camera of the Galaxy S6 was once considered to be one of the best on any android device but the Galaxy S7 as its successor has taken the camera to whole new level. With the Galaxy S7, you get an expandable memory storage, dust and water resistant android smartphone, a microSD card slot, a battery with a larger capacity, no protruding camera and an easier-to-hold design. 

With all these great specs, this phone's not coming in cheap. The Galaxy S7 is quality for your money, if you're one who's always looking out for the best, here's a device that promises a great user experience and it's gonna awe you for weeks unending. One's gonna feel good just carrying this phone around.

Would i get this device?

Well i for one don't like the Samsung devices for one reason and that is their cost. They have great specs, yes! but one could probably buy a cow with the price they're being offered. I bet i could get a tecno phone with almost the same specs as these and for half the price of the Samsung Galaxy S7- Winks, one's gotta think smart you know. uuuugggh, And lest i forget if you're living in Nigeria, then the 5G network support on this device will probably be useless, now there goes your money out the window baby..you better run after it. But look on the brighter side, you can always tell everyone that you've got a phone that's got 5G network support.
