Our Samsung Galaxy S7 Review
The Samsung Galaxy S6 remains one of the best smartphones available on the market, but such is the market’s need to fire out updated/upgraded models at a vigorous rate of knots, the S7 is now upon us. We take a look to see if it brings enough new to the table to warrant a significantly higher price than its predecessor.
Pay monthly or PAYG?
This phone goes straight into the pay monthly bracket; if you’re buying this phone outright and using a pay as you go plan, complete with the traditional smaller allowances and less value for money, then you are mad.
It’s one of the most expensive phones to buy outright at the moment, at around £500 or more depending on where you go, while tariffs on this phone range from £32 to £40 a month. If you’re not at the end of your contract and just upgrading early then you could expect to see higher prices than that offered, so it might be worth waiting until your contract runs down, so you have a better negotiating point.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 sports a 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, and it is extraordinarily crisp and vivid, with 577 pixels per inch. Whilst this sounds like the same screen on the S6, it is actually a lot brighter, with better contrast. The S6 screen was stunning anyway, but this improved version has helped to ensure that the Samsung’s latest flagship can confidently claim to have the best display on the market, and it would be hard to argue.
The S6 had an excellent 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, but Samsung has dropped this in favour of a 12-megapixel alternative.
Despite the drop, picture quality is great; most notably, the camera’s capacity to capture excellent images in low light is extremely impressive, and has rightly been a focus of the marketing. Also, the camera protrudes less, which was a common complaint about the predecessor.
There’s faster autofocus thanks to a dual-pixel sensor, and the phone includes the usual plethora of modes which are fun, despite varying in terms of actual practical usefulness.
The S7 looks a lot like the S6, which is unsurprising seeing as they have the same size screen. The fingerprint sensor is less rounded, the SIM tray has moved and the back plate has a curve at the edges, but these are superficial changes. The back of the phone is less of a fingerprint smudge-magnet, but the issue hasn’t been completely eradicated.
The water resistance is a big difference, and while it does indeed prove water resistant, we wouldn’t recommend deliberately testing this. Water messes temporarily with the audio, and it does take a couple of hours to shrug off the dunking experience and function normally.
For European customers, Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 octa-core processor provides the power, alongside 4GB of RAM, and the results are outstanding. There isn’t a way you could fault performance; the phone effortlessly breezes through multiple tasks, and when it gets to the stage where you think you might be asking too much of it, the S7 smiles back and laughs at your feeble attempts to test its resolve.
What’s it like for social media?
The social media integration is flawless, with the phone’s power allowing for fluid navigation and a slick experience. Google Play has well-designed apps for all the usual suspects, like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and you can easily locate photos and choose to share via any installed social media platforms.
What’s it like for games and apps?
The excellent chip powering the phone lets you cruise through games without lag. You could have several games open on the phone and there’s still no flinching, so avid gamers will certainly want to take the S7 into consideration.
What we think
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a triumph, building on the success of the S6 and bringing enough extra to warrant upgrading. The display is stunning, as is the performance, and new features, particularly water resistance and expandable memory, are welcome additions. There are some great deals available from different networks, with many offering the phone free upfront.
