Speaking of features, the seventh Galaxy of smartphones are IP68 certified, meaning they can can withstand in water upto 30 minutes meter and a half of water. Samsung has brought back the microSD card slot, that now allows you to expand the internal storage to further 200GB.

They are also equipped with an aperture of 1.7, one of the highest available in smartphones that allows to let in more light and results in brighter and sharper images.

We did not see much of design changes in the Galaxy S7 and it carries the similar design fashion as previous year Galaxy models. However the S7 Edge does adds in some edge  to itself. Though the Edge display is still the same curved display, but these curves disappear when moving beyond the side of the S7 Edge, which gives you a lot more reason to flaunt the device. The edge screen on the Galaxy S7 edge is now even more powerful and convenient, with quick access to Applications and content.

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge perfect the 3D Thermoforming process, which now brings metal and glass together seamlessly from every angle.

The new ‘Always on Display’ feature allows users to easily check for updates, without having to worry about unlocking the phone.

The powerful processor and battery ensure longer playing time, and the internal cooling system keeps the device from overheating.  Galaxy S7 and S7 edge come with 3000mAh & 3600mAh batteries, respectively. The Galaxy S7’s CPU is about 44 percent more powerful than its predecessor. Samsung has also added a dramatically enhanced GPU – which does the heavy lifting for graphics. This is about 60 percent more powerful than the one in Galaxy S6.
