Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the next big anticipated release in the smartphone world with all eyes turned to the MWC 2016 launch event. Here in our Samsung Galaxy S7 review we take a look at what we can expect as the Galaxy S7 rumours abound.


Galaxy S7 Design

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to be the first from the manufacturer to feature a ClearForce display. This is similar to Force Touch and 3D Touch seen on other handsets which uses technology to sense how hard the screen is being pressed to perform functions depending on light or hard touches.


The Synaptics ClearForce Display technology can be used for picture zooming, variable speed scrolling and different gaming actions along with image editing, previewing and opening content and to wake up or unlock the phone.


The display is expected to be a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x1440 pixels which means that Samsung has shunned the 4K display to offer up a better battery life. Another little rumour about the screen points to an “Always On” configuration as Samsung has trademarked the phrase “Always on Display” so we can expect some sort of information display on the screen even in sleep mode.

Gorilla Glass has been dropped and now Samsung are using their own iteration, namely Turtle Glass,which is scratch and shatter resistant


The chassis will offer dust and water resistance making it even more durable and the metal frame will be made of a magnesium alloy which is stronger than aluminium and also dissipates heat


Samsung Galaxy S7 Features


The S7 will include Android Marshmallow along with the TouchWiz user interface and there will be a fingerprint sensor built in to the home key to keep everything secure.


Marshmallow upgrades begin for Motorola owners


The 32GB on board memory can be boosted with a microSD card up to 128GB and the latest ESS technology chip brings 32-bit mobile sound to the phone for superb sound quality with minimal distortion.


The Snapdragon 820 processor will be on board and this chip is said to be 40% better on graphics performance and offer 33% faster download speeds than the previous model. The Samsung Galaxy S7 will have 4GB RAM making it the fastest smartphone on the market yet so we can expect superb performance when running demanding or multiple tasks.


To keep the sleek lines on the phone it is expected to have a non-removable battery with around 2 days mixed usage power available. Quick Charge 3.0 offers up 38% more efficiency over the previous Quick Charge 2.0 offering, making it possible to get an 80% charge in just 30 minutes and wireless charging will also be included.


Galaxy S7 Camera


Samsung is expected to use its own BRITECELL camera technology on the Galaxy S7 which is smaller sensor that performs better in low light conditions. The overall smaller dimensions of the camera lens should mean an end to the camera bulge on the back making it a much sleeker looking phone.

Autofocus, LED flash and optical image stabilisation are all going to be on board but the actual resolution of the lens is yet to be confirmed with rumours ranging from the 16-megapixel used on the S6 with a jump up to a 20-megapixel camera. There has also been talk of a 12-megapixel camera adorning the S7, however with an f/1.7 aperture the lens would capture more of the available light it will outperform the overall resolution of 12-megapixels.There will be a 5-megapixel camera on the front for taking selfies and this should have a wide-angle lens so you can get more of your friends in the shot.


So this is everything the rumour mill has given us so far and as the launch date of the 21st of February fast approaches it won’t be long until we know for sure what the next Samsung flagship will offer.
