Now that Samsung's latest phablet is out of the picture, it's time to focus on the company's second favorite device, the Galaxy S7 Edge. While it doesn't have all the phablet goodness the Note 7 has to offer, it's still worthy to be called "the best Android phone in the market". Besides, it seems like Samsung is doing its best to make the S7 Edge the ultimate Note 7 replacement.
Galaxy S7 Edge News
The most recent leaks reveal Samsung's plans of releasing a blue-colored Galaxy S7 Edge. This may just be a simple step to boost the device's sales. However, it's worth mentioning that the said blue color variant has first made an appearance in the Note 7 series. Thus, it's safe to assume that Samsung is trying to make the S7 Edge look a lot like the luckless phablet. Not that we're complaining. In fact, a blue coral colored S7 Edge is a happy addition to the S7 series. It's just interesting to think what else Samsung has in mind for the consumers.
Furthermore, in light with the Android Nougat rollout that has been making headlines lately, there is something more in store for the S7 Edge. Apparently, the S7 and S7 Edge are also getting the Grace UX on top of the Android Nougat update. The Grace UX was initially found on the Note 7 and it brings in quite a few extra treats. According to a Sam Mobile report, the said additional software even runs smoother on the S7 devices that the phone's current software.
Galaxy S7 Edge As The Best Android Phone
Apart from being almost like the well-loved Note 7 (granted the phablet doesn't explode), the S7 Edge is also a very powerful device. It is uber-premium and is clearly hard to beat. Its 5.5 super AMOLED screen display is not something you'd see every day. It comes with a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution that is around 534 in pixels-per-inch density. The display is vibrant, bright and undoubtedly pleasant-to-the-eyes.
Furthermore, the S7 Edge boasts of its IP68 certified body that makes it dust and water resistant. It is also powered by a super-fast processor that is the Snapdragon 820 and it comes with a relatively big RAM size of 4 GB. The S7 Edge comes with 32 and 64 GB internal storage but it can always be expanded through its microSD slot for up to 256 GB.
Camera-wise, the Galaxy S7 Edge is not that bad either. It has a 12 MP rear camera with PDA, OIS and flash. It also comes with a good 5 MP front camera. We've all known and loved Samsung for its expertise in creating good quality cameras and the S7 Edge is no exemption. It may not have the dual camera system that a few other companies boast of, but it sure does deliver great imagery. Not only does it take good photos, it shows good photos as well through its top-of-the-line display. You can get unlocked version here.
Lastly, the Galaxy S7 Edge is also in no way inferior when it comes to the battery department. The device comes with a sufficiently sized 3600 mAh battery, GSM Arena reported. Overall, there's no complaining when it comes to what the Galaxy S7 Edge can offer. Not only does it looks good, it also has all the necessary internals to make it perform well.
