WVidos's review of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

original version, submitted Apr 15, 2016, 1:41 PM:

Simply Amazing

I read all of the articles I could find on this phone. I watched the unveiling online, and I pre-ordered it as soon as T-Mobile started taking orders. I have to admit that I had lofty expectations for this phone, and it has delivered on every level. PROS: Insane battery life. I am the definition of a power user, and I cannot kill this battery in one day. Samsung's screens are the best in the business, hands down. Camera. I was somewhat skeptical about the megapixel reduction, but the pictures are still crystal clear, and the camera focuses insanely fast. Great for taking pictures of kids who never stop moving. The processor is blazing! This phone responds so quickly, it's almost as if it is reading my mind. Design. Say what you will. This phone is gorgeous (especially in silver titanium). Overall build quality is on point. Samsung really nailed this one. Reception is good in Lafayette, LA using T-Mobile. Call quality is excellent. My hearing certainly isn't what it used to be, and I can hear very well when talking on this phone. CONS: The edge screen takes some getting used to. I accidentally hit it while talking on the phone. Vibration is good, but it could be a little stronger. No USB Type C. It is the future. Why not include it now? Sound quality could be a little better for music. TouchWiz is a big improvement over past variants, but it could still be a little more refined. Overall, I would highly recommend this phone for anybody that loves Android, or is looking for a good reason to jump ship from Apple. Just between us, I have already converted three former Apple users to Android (particularly Samsung) simply by letting them mess around with my Galaxy.
