Well to be honest at first glance it really looks like earlier year S6; and quiet frankly it’s,
they used the same glass and metal design patterns from the S6 but with more stress on the plastic parts resilience and strength.
Samsung has dropped the metallic rim around its iconic physical home key, enabling it to blend a little more seamlessly into the design of the S7.
Meanwhile, the IP68 water resistance has improved from the S5, allowing submersion of up to five feet for 30 minutes, plus there’s no annoying flap covering the charging port.
The microUSB port has been waterproofed, but the S7 won’t charge if it detects water in its hole. If you’ve taken the phone for a plunge in the bath, you’ll need to dry the charging port before plugging in.
Low light performance is one of the big selling points for all smartphone manufacturers, with everyone boasting about how well their cameras can perform when the lights go down.
To that end, Samsung has kept the sensor size the same, but by reducing the number of pixels it means each one is now larger – that allows more light in, thus improving performance in low light and generating sharper, brighter shots.
