The Samsung S7 Edge has been announced, and here are 7 features that make the phone better compare to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

#1 – MicroSD Card Slot

– No microSD

– microSD, up to 200 GB (dedicated slot) – single SIM model
– microSD, up to 200 GB (uses SIM 2 slot) – dual SIM model

When Samsung remove the expandable memory via microSD in Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, many people were disappointed because they want more storage in their phone.

This is actually the main reason why people buy Samsung phone compare to iPhone – the ability to upgrade storage with microSD.

Samsung really listening to the response from users and microSD card slot now is back on Galaxy S7 and be able to take up to 200GB!

Plus it could support Dual SIM and Single SIM.


#2 – Camera Quality


Galaxy S6 Edge
– 16 MP, f/1.9, 28mm, OIS, autofocus, LED flash

Galaxy S7 Edge
– 12 MP, f/1.7, 26mm, phase detection autofocus, OIS, LED flash

You could be forgiven for thinking that Samsung had taken a step backwards with their cameras for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge since the camera is 12MP, compared to the 16MP camera of its predecessor – but this change is actually for the better.

The new camera allows in much more light, meaning the pictures taken are much sharper and more vivid.

#3 – Longer Battery Life


Galaxy S6 Edge
– Non-removable Li-Ion 2,600 mAh battery

Galaxy S7 Edge
– Non-removable Li-Ion 3,600 mAh battery

The battery for the Galaxy S7 Edge has been upgraded, meaning you should be able to easily get a full day’s use out of it, even if you’re using it frequently.

Boosted from 2,600mAh to 3,600mAh, Samsung has evidently gone the extra mile to give those who demand lots of power what they were after.

#4 – Screen Display


Galaxy S6 Edge
– 5.1 inches (~71.7% screen-to-body ratio)

Galaxy S7 Edge
– 5.5 inches (~76.1% screen-to-body ratio)

From looking at Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge specs, we can see the phone comes with a quad HD Super AMOLED display, guaranteeing high quality images and videos, which allows you to see the contrasting colours on the screen.

The S7 Edge has a slightly larger curved screen at 5.5 inches, which has been refined and improved from what we saw with the S6.

#5 – Always On Display


Samsung’s new Always On Display (AOD) feature means you can see the time permanently on your phone, even when you aren’t using it.

Samsung has insisted that this feature uses less than 1 percent battery per hour, making it a very neat feature to save the battery!

#6 – Waterproof


The waterproof feature of Samsung’s new products is handy.

Considering the phone is likely the most valuable possession you take out and about with you, ensuring that it’s battle-hardened is important.

The waterproofing gives that added security for its owners that many top-end phones do not, and that’s great.

#7 – Motion Panorama


If you love the Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus “LivePhoto” then you will love the “Motion Panorama” by the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Stepping up from Apple’s game last December, Samsung integrated the technology introduced in LivePhoto and make it even bigger and better with the Motion Panorama.

With the Galaxy S7 in hand, you can drag along the image to revisit the motion!
