Of course the battery can be bigger but again going on your argument that GSMarena is just benchmark we shouldn't judge the battery life untill we use it in real life. People's usage varies. At the same time it is difficult to try and keep the phone slim...I notice LG uses a LCD screen which i thought is not as slim as the amoled (i could be wrong )

This obsession with slimmer is better is also what is ruining things for us.

I wouldn't mind a device that is 9-12mm thicknif it has a large battery and great cooling technology to better dissipate heat generated by these newer more powerful yet smaller SoCs.

Xperia X10 was 13mm, with nice curved edges on its back, was fantastic in hand.

Samsung just launched Samsung PAY here in India but im still unable to download it form Play Store since it says my device is incompatible. Is this due to my device having a UAE CSC code? (No Samsung Pay in UAE..but im located in India)

Thanks



Yep that could be it indeed.

The UAE and India have the Exynos, yeah? So it should just be a matter of flashing a Indian ROM with India CSC.

I agree with Tsepz_GP. The battery life on the S7E is pretty sweet. I end my day usually with 10% charge and this is with 4G switched on through out the day, WiFI looking for hotspots in the background, AOD with a colored logo and an average of 2hrs of streaming music via BT earphones.

Thats what I thought but just realized that S-Pay is available in UAE too! So I really dont know why am I restricted. Has any body had issues using their US device in any other country that has S-Pay?

I have emailed Samsung anyway.

Exynos continues to prove itself, the S7 Edge Exynos seems to be better than the LG G6 and OnePlus 3T Snapdragon 821 according to these GSMArena S8+ Leaked Benchmarks

I had no idea the Exynos 8890 was this powerful

That is excellent enjoy!

I need to setup my Android Pay to work as Samsung Pay has not arrived here yet


The Verge giving the S7 Edge a glowing rereview and making a great point about it, probably the best value for money Smartphone around.


http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/4/10/15241666/samsung-galaxy-s7-edge-s8-value

[SIZE=6]Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge is still a great phone, and now great value thanks to the S8[/SIZE]


I really didn’t set out to re-review the S7 Edge; all I wanted was to remind myself what Samsung’s TouchWiz interface was like, so as to be able to best judge the company’s changes in the 2017 iteration. But then I started admiring the S7 Edge’s screen. And I got an appreciation for the battery life that comes from a class-leading 3,600mAh battery. By the time I’d taken a few decent photos with the camera, I was convinced sufficiently to swap my SIM card over from my beloved Pixel and extend this Samsung test drive.

Now, am I saying the S7 Edge is better than the Pixel? Or better than the upcoming Galaxy S8? Definitely not. But depending on how its price shakes out in your local market, the S7 Edge looks set to offer much better value for money. Think about the things you want from a premium smartphone: a universally high standard of quality across display, camera, ergonomics, and looks, with the biggest possible battery that doesn’t explode. Well, the S7 Edge checks off all those boxes in 2017 almost as well as it did in 2016.

Samsung haters love claiming that Samsung's don't get good battery life, yet I have yet to come across any devices in the last year or 2 that can step up to the Galaxy S7 Edge Battery Life under heavy usage. Maybe the Huawei Mate 9, Google Pixel XL and OnePlus 3T can give it a good run for its money, certainly haven't seen any Sony, HTC or LG that can manage beat a S7 Edge in Battery Life.

Nope unfortunately doesn't look like it. The only GIF Creator is in the Video Player.


So looking at the H1 Flagships announced at MWC, looks like none of them can match a Galaxy S7 Edge in Battery Life

Let's see how the Blackberry KEYone does in GSMArena's Battery Life Endurance Test, I think that phone will set a new benchmark.

I would have thought that S8 plus can match the 7 edge in battery life ?
