The Note 7 could have been the best Android phone of 2016, but it explodes. Hence, the next best thing is arguably the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It has no stylus and it is a tad smaller, but it offers all the Samsung goodness every Android fan wants. It has hefty specs too, making it the best premium Android on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Display
Among many other things, the S7 Edge's display is one its best assets. According to GSM Arena, the Galaxy S7 Edge's display resolution is 1440 x 2560 and it is equivalent to a 534 pixels-per-inch density. Clearly, this is not something you see every day. Take note that the flagship killer OnePlus 3 only has 401 PPI. Apple's iPhone 7 Plus also has 401 PPI. This shows that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the superior mobile phone when talking about display and pixels.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Update
The S7 Edge runs Android Marshmallow from the box. However, its Nougat update is coming very soon. According to recent reports, Samsung might already be done with its S7 / S7 Edge Android testing and the company is about to roll out the update. Not only that, Samsung may also bring in Note 7's Grace UX to the S7 Edge together with the Nougat update,Sammobile reported. This means that the Galaxy S7 Edge will also have all the extra treats that the Note 7 has.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Performance
There may be quite a few bumps when comparing the Galaxy S7 Edge with Apple devices. However, when comparing it to its fellow Android units, the S7 boasts of its powerful CPU. It's worth noting that the S7 Edge is powered by one of Snapdragon's fastest chips which are the Snapdragon 820. If you top it up with all of the S7 Edge's other high-end internals, the device clearly shows power over other Androids.
For the camera department, the Samsung Galaxy S7 may not have a dual camera system. However, it is still one of the best camera phones on the market. Samsung has widely been known for its superb camera and the S7 Edge is no exception. Its 12 MP f/1.7 shooter with phase detection autofocus, LED flash and optical image stabilization pretty much beats most of its competitions.
