1.- 5.5 inch screen
I have been able to see and use a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. And the truth is that I have the feeling that it is a small mobile. Also, with the curved sides, it looks even smaller, and the screen is somewhat more useless. Keep in mind that the curved sides look great and can even be useful, but it is part of the screen that we lose. And when I used the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge it seemed like a very small mobile. Perhaps that is why Samsung has decided to launch the new Galaxy S7 Edge with a 5.5-inch screen. And I think it could be the perfect size for this smartphone. Something bigger than the previous mobile, with the same screen resolution, the same technology, and a very similar finish, and even better.
As an amateur photographer, I am aware that photos and videos captured with mobile phones are not at the level of videos and photos captured with professional-level cameras. However, the truth is that in the end as users we end up using mobile phones a lot to shoot photos, because they have quality cameras. As soon as we have some 4K videos, and high resolution photos, we will fill the memory. But since we have the possibility of expanding the memory by means of a microSD card, that will not be a problem in the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It is another of the differences between this new version and the previous one, and for me it is one of the keys to the new smartphone. One of the main reasons I think if you have a Galaxy S6 Edge, you should switch to the new Galaxy S7 Edge. What’s more, if you have already had memory problems on your mobile, you will have come to this conclusion yourself.
3.- Water resistant
The design of the smartphone has improved. If there is something that Samsung mobiles have always been criticized for, it is their design, almost always in plastic. The Galaxy S6 came with a renewed design with a metal frame and a glass back cover, of a very premium level. However, this year they have gone further, turning the smartphone into a waterproof mobile, another feature that I find really remarkable. Also, the design has been polished almost literally. They have managed to match the edges of the metal and glass mobile in such a way that it seems almost a single piece. A very notable improvement in the design that we see both in the finishes of the mobile and in regard to the water resistance of the smartphone itself.
4.- Better performance and better camera
I am going to consider it as a single thing, because although I consider that there are improvements over last year’s version, they do not seem as relevant as the other three factors that we have talked about. The other three aspects are key differences from last year’s version. These two are improvements that come with the new version, and that on the other hand are evident. A mobile launched a year later, must have a better camera and a better processor. This is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S7 that features the eight-core Samsung Exynos 8890, instead of last year’s Exynos 7420, as well as the 12-megapixel camera, which is better than the 16-megapixel camera of the flagship of the year. past. The latter may seem less logical, but it is explained in depth in an article that we dedicate exclusively to it, how a 12-megapixel camera can be better than a 16-megapixel one. Two improvements that seem relevant to me in this mobile and that I consider as a single factor because they are obvious as it is a newer mobile.
