Gadget : Samsung Galaxy S7

 

gadget

If you are familiar with Samsung’s 2015 Galaxy devices, you know precisely what to expect from the Galaxy S7. This year, it is all about refinement. The GS7 spots the same smooth, brushed-metal bumper sandwiched between front and back glass. This improved design extends to the camera on the back, which still protrudes, but only about half as much as last year’s model.
It has a 5.1-inch flat AMOLED screen that is the envy of every other phone, with a gentle curve to its back. Samsung has loaded the phone with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but it has kept the S6’s bubbly, colourful TouchWiz interface and old-school menus. The interface is easy enough to use, but a little resistant to change.
However, the S7 even lacks the fun Flipboard home screen app that previous Galaxy phones had, so you will need to download a launcher if you want to read news from the home screen, secondly these phones come locked to specific networks which forces a user to incur extra costs. Currently the phone is a bit pricey, costing Shs2.5m but it is a smart investment for a good phone.

The good
• Gorgeous, waterproof design
• Better battery life than Galaxy S6
• Camera shoots better in low light, focuses faster
• Micro SD card slot
• Powerful Snapdragon 820 processor

The bad
• Carrier locked with carrier bloatware
• All-glass design is fingerprint magnet
• Prone to glass cracking yet expensive to repair
