On the surface it may look similar to the S6, but once you've got it in your hands you'll start feeling the difference. Though it packs the same 5.1-inch display and premium glass-and-metal finish as the S6, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is subtly sleeker, and ergonomically designed to offer the series' most comfortable grip yet. Despite its size, operating one-handed is a breeze – while IP68-rated dust and water resistance help keep it safe from any mishaps.
Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Galaxy S7
Just as you’d expect from one of the world’s biggest and best smartphone manufacturers, the S7 takes all that was great and good in the S6 before giving it an added sheen. One of the stand-out features of the S7 is its ‘Always On’ display, meaning a select number of pixels remain illuminated - showing the time, date and notifications - even when the phone is asleep.
Another improvement can be seen in the S7’s battery. Not only is the 3,000 mAh battery bigger than that of the S6, the S7 is also equipped with clever technology that helps to preserve the phone’s charge - which is handy if you’re the type of person who tends to use their smartphone for long periods of time.
Superb low-light performance, speedy autofocus and a wider lens for stunning landscape shots: the Samsung Galaxy S7's 12-megapixel camera is among the best on the market. It's the first smartphone to feature a dual-pixel sensor, the same technology used in DSLR cameras, helping you capture super-sharp shots with a minimum of fuss.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, giving you access to exciting new features like Google Now on Tap, which lets you search without leaving the app you're in. The all-new Game launcher makes recording videos and customising your in-game experience even easier.
Samsung's latest flagship excels in every area – from its gaming performance and crisp display to its fantastic camera and genuinely useful features, it's got every base covered. If you're looking for the best Android phone on the market, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is undoubtedly among the strongest contenders for the title.
