Samsung Galaxy S7 is the much awaited cellular device that is rumored to supersede its biggest rivalry, the iPhone 6 and perhaps even the iPhone 7.
The Samsung S7 boasts of many features that weigh in its favor. Among the features that separate it from the rest of the flock is the protection against unexpected splashes, the long battery life in comparison to that of the iPhone 6 and the bigger HD screen.
The out of the box Operating System for Samsung S7 is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, it should be mentioned that within three months Samsung intends to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat to all S7 devices.
This is one of the features that set the Samsung S7 apart. It has a 5.7 inch 2560×1440 (514 PPI) screen. Furthermore, this screen has a super AMOLED, meaning that the pixels are able to activate at a much higher rate leading to faster user interaction recognition. Also, Gorilla Glass has been incorporated.
This phone has two different versions for its processor. For US citizens the Samsung S7 is equipped with Quad-Core Snapdragon 820. For the rest of the world (international) the processor is the company’s home built Octa-Core Exynos.
The results of the Octa-Core Exynos on the Samsung S7 was measured against the same phone equipped with the Quad-Core Snapdragon. The results showed that the multi-core Oct-Core Exynos yielded a score 967 units higher to that achieved by the Quad-Core Snapdragon.
The Samsung S7 is equipped with a 32 GB internal storage space. However, with an SD card, this is expandable up to 2 TB.
S7 runs on a 4 GB RAM. This is twice the RAM Apple’s iPhone 6 was using.
The Samsung S7 is scheduled to be on shelves earlier than expected. It is reported to hit stores on Friday, August 18. However, Verizon Subscribers are in for a lucky spin as the company has started shipping out the Samsung S7 products sooner than expected.
