One of the coolest cases you can get for the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge are the Samsung official S-View Flip and LED wallet covers. I have been using these ever since the Galaxy Note 4 days and if you want 100% full protection of your phone against drops and full coverage of the screen, these are going to do a much better job than any other screen protector/tempered glass.

In this battery test, we test out the Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Galaxy S6 using our standard HighOnAndroid SOT Test.
Since the battery capacity has been upgraded from Galaxy S6’s 2550mAh to Galaxy S7’s 3000mAh, I expected the Galaxy S7 to fair much better in this test but the question was, “how much more?”
Here’s Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge 4K cinematic video test, this was shot at the Fine Palace of Arts in San Francisco. I used both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to record this video but both S7 and S7 Edge has identical cameras. (This whole video was recorded using the S7 & S7 Edge!)
Upon finally unboxing the Galaxy S7 Edge, I was really satisfied with the phone. I intentionally used the regular Galaxy S7 for the last few days before unboxing the bigger S7 Edge, because I really wanted to feel the difference.
Right away, you are greeted by much bigger 5.5-inch phablet with curved screen that fits a lot better for people with larger hands like myself. Personally, I don’t like small phones as they are hard to read and much easier to slip out of your hands. Okay, so right away, I really dig the larger screen, curved screen that’s a lot easier to hold than the S7, and this was definitely the sweet spot for me.
I didn’t get to attend Samsung’s Galaxy S7 launch event due to my flight being delayed and being stuck in Dublin, Ireland but I did spend a few hours playing with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge today at MWC and yes, that made up for all the trouble.
First, let’s talk about the design. Design on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge hasn’t changed much from last year’s S6 and S6 Edge. In fact, the only difference you can tell with naked eye is the fact that this year’s S7 and S7 Edge both come with curved back instead of being flat. This makes the phones a lot easier to hold and boy, I noticed the difference right away the first time I held it. It’s more ergonomic and naturally allows you to grip the phone. Other than that, you will notice the S7 has barely a camera hump compared to a huge one from last year. There’s also always-on screen just like the LG G5. Those damn Sam Spies at LG paid off.
