Samsung Galaxy S7
Close your eyes and picture the Samsung Galaxy S6, but the way you wanted it to be, not the way it came out. Now open them and look at the Galaxy S7. Better? Let’s see.
The Galaxy S6 was Samsung’s response to growing criticism that the design of its high-end models just didn’t live up to their price tag and market position. Okay then, a dual-glass sandwich with aluminum all around is premium enough, but you had to live without the storage expansion, replaceable battery and protection against the elements that were all available in the Galaxy S5.
The Galaxy S7 marks the return of the microSD slot and water-proofing, and while the battery is still sealed (which doesn’t seem likely to change going forward), Samsung has been a lot more generous with the capacity for this generation.
Galaxy flagships have always led the way when it comes to imaging, their cameras always being among the top performers in the market. This time around, Samsung went backwards to play a different game of numbers: fewer but larger pixels, all 12 million of them capable of phase detection. Lightning-fast autofocus is the promise, and we’ve already seen the S7 deliver on it.
Take perfect pictures, even in low light
If a moment’s worth capturing you want confidence your camera’s up to the job. The Galaxy S7’s brighter lens and larger pixel image sensor mean better pictures, even in low light. And its Dual Pixel 12MP camera is the fastest you can get, instantly focusing on objects for crisper, clearer images. So whether you’re at the beach, at a gig or out with friends you know you can trust your phone to capture the moment in all its glory.
Transfer your stuff to your new phone quickly and easily
Trouble transferring data from your old phone is a thing of the past. The Galaxy S7 comes with Smart Switch, so you can move all your content across seamlessly using a cable. Smart Switch works if your old phone’s an iOS, Android or BlackBerry device. And if it’s a Samsung smartphone you can even bring your homescreen across.
Spot, block and report spam
The Galaxy S7 comes with Smartcall, an app that tells you who’s calling, so you can identify spam or unwanted calls. You can also use the app to block and report these calls so you’ve got more time to speak to the people who matter.
