This year first Mobile World Congressexhibition took place in Barcelona, starting from February 22 to 25. Exhibition still goes on, but we already would like to share our hot news introducing latestGalaxy S7 andGalaxyS7Edge.After theappearanceof thesestrongly awaited devices, most of us was still having many different questions.Maybeweexpectedtoomuchortechnology stops after reachinga certainlevelso it cango furtherfrom checkpoint.Ormaybethis timemanufacturerdidn’t gave everything he had?Wehopethat afterourdetailedreview, eachof you will have your own answer.

Lets start from the things which attracts theattention first it‘s theexterior.Looks like it’ssame asthe6thgenerationGalaxysmartphones. By taking a good look we discovered only one small change, both Galaxy devices havecurvedrearbody part,whichadds slightly morecomfortability when holdingin a hand.At the same time they also becomeevenmoreslipperywhen your hand is wet.7thgeneration Galaxiesis onemillimeterthinnercomparing with previous ones,but it’s hard to feel the difference.
Now it’s time to exclude some great news. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge haveIP68waterresistancecertificate,so users can bravely browse themin the rainyday or make videos diving in the pool.
Samsungfinallyunveiledalways-on” display.There was a time when we had this feature on old phones with uncolored displays, but on these days highresolutiondisplays it’s a newfoundtechnology.Samsung made a researchwhich showedthat lot’s of energy is used when user frequently checks notifications by turningdisplay on and off.Fromnow on,it will be unnecessary. Main notifications like messages, missed calls, social apps, calendar events will alwaysbe visible.This willwork byonlylighting up the pixels on the screen it needs, instead of turning on the entire display.Samsung declares that the always-on screen will only use up to 1% of the battery power over a day.Talking about the energy,GalaxyS7 isequippedwith3000mAhbattery,whiletheGalaxyS7Edgehas largercapacity3600mAh.Thisdifferenceisdue tothe5.5inch bigger display.
Another great news is that microSDcardsupport has been returned. Now both Galaxies supports up to 200GB microSD card, which goes in the same tray next totheSIM. You can also put secondnano-SIM card instead ofthememorycard and havetwo activenumbersat the same time.Isn’t what great?
Comparedwiththe previousGalaxyS6,a newGalaxy S7 and S7 Edge came with downgraded rear camera. Megapixel count changes from 16 to 12, but that decrease has helped to ensure even better photography in the dark or at the dusk. Now main camera features a f1.7 aperture with bigger pixels, so sensor can soak up more light. We’ve been surprised with highly improvedauto focus speed when transitioning from taking photo at close range to taking a landscape.
On the software front, bothmodels runs flawlesslyquicklyon Marshmallow 6.0. Devices are powered bySnapdragon820processor,which iscooledbywater.Thecoolingprocess runs without anymicrofans, water just simply circulatesatthe edgeside of the housing.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will come withType-CUSBcable. Using new generation power tool, 30 min.charging will boostup to83% batterylife.Fastchargingfeatureis also managed byMarsmallowOS,which is responsible not just ofenergy use, but itsuptake too.
