Finally, the Galaxy was unveiled at the MWC 2016. The vast launch hosted by Samsung was attended by a larger number of people, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. The Samsung Galaxy S7 was a highly awaited phone of the year. The S7 in comparison to its predecessor is a better upgraded version, but also has features where we would have wanted more from Samsung.
Here is a small comparison between the two brother devices: The Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Galaxy S6
This is an area where Samsung always compromises. Sticking to the same old design has become Samsung’s new ideology. Even the new handset Galaxy S7 scores average points on looks. It is quite similar in looks to its predecessor, Galaxy S6. The only major difference between the two is the metallic ring around the fingerprint scanner, which was there in the S6, but has been taken off from S7. Also, the Galaxy S7 comes with a rounded back.
Both the handsets come with a 5.1-inch QHD resolution display, which can disappoint the people (though the display of S6 was a great, so people may accept this as well). The S7 has an Always On Display, which shows a clock, calendar or pattern when left in standby. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is water resistant, a plus factor over the S6.
The interface is almost same for the two phones, with the only difference coming in for the fact that S7 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so some new features on the interface add up.
The S7 likely features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor combined with 4GB of RAM, which takes it much ahead of the S6.
Samsung S6 had compromised on battery, with just a small 2550 mAh battery. The phone’s battery was too small as compared to hte hardware and this resulted in fast battery drain. We hope that the battery issue has been fixed in the S7 as it has a 3000 mAh battery.
Now this might be the most looked upon feature but Samsung has actually dropped the megapixels in here. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 12 MP rear camera, in comparison to S6’s 12 MP camera. But according to Samsung the camera this time is better and helps you in taking better and crispier shots.
Samsung Galaxy S7 is a device carrying a lot of expectations on its shoulders. How successful it turns out to be will be crucial to watch because it is undoubtedly well upgraded over the S6, but there are certain features like design, display and camera where Samsung seems to have compromised.
These features could indeed repel the people away from S7 as well, keeping in view the unending competition in the smartphone market these days.
But, obviously a final verdict can only be made once the device hits the markets and reaches the consumer hands. Till then we can just roughly deduce and tell.
