Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for Verizon Wireless

Hardware Software Wrap Up Comments  1  

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a bit of a different monster than the S7. It's bigger, has a larger, curved screen that does special things, and has a juicier battery. It's also $780, which is steep hurdle to clear.

Taken as a whole, I like the S7 Edge better than the S7, but only by a bit. I prefer the shape, appearance and bigger screen of the Edge, and appreciate the slightly better battery life.

The hardware borders on perfection with its design, materials, and build quality. Toss in extras like waterproofing and that's just icing on the cake. The S7 Edge has a fantastic screen, provides good voice calls and decent data speeds, and delivers excellent battery life for a handset in this class.

On the software front, TouchWiz is still a bit heavy-handed for my tastes, but the S7 Edge offers an incredible numbers of tools to personalize the handset. You can make things simple or go for the advanced. The Snapdragon 820 processor provides plenty of power and the phone is lightning quick.

The camera is the Galaxy S7 Edge's stand-out feature. It ranks among the best in the market, and offers plenty of flexibility when capturing photos.

If you can live without the S7's edge screen features, which I find a bit underwhelming, the standard S7 goes for $110 less. Even so, the Galaxy S7 Edge is an impressive piece of hardware that I recommend to anyone who can afford it.
