Samsung Galaxy S7 128GB Review

The 3-Minute Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

Still good over a year later

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4/5 ● Value: 5/5

The Best:

The Galaxy S7 is a solid high-end Android smartphone. While no longer Samsung’s premier flagship phone, it still offers a powerful, smooth, and reliable user experience with excellent battery life, a great camera, and beautiful design.

The Bugs:

While remaining a solid smartphone to this day, it’s easy to see some of the drawbacks when you compare it to the new Galaxy S8. This version of the Galaxy S is prone to bloatware, lacks some of the power of the current generation of luxury phones, and has certain features that miss the mark.

Is it for you?

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a great option for someone who is looking for a high-end smartphone without a high-end price tag. While technically part of the last generation of smartphones, it remains a powerful and capable phone that will meet the needs of most buyers.

“... you’ve got a phone that continues to stay competitive more than a year after its release.”

Meet the Samsung Galaxy S7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 was launched in March 2016 as the successor to the incredibly popular Galaxy S6. Upon its release, the S7 was awarded rave reviews and it continues to offer solid performance and great features more than a year after first hitting the market.

With the launch of the Galaxy S8 earlier this year, customers can now enjoy the S7 at a discounted price. Check out the sections below for a more detailed discussion of the features that ensure that this phone will continue to be a relevant contender in the smartphone market.

What we like

One of the main draws of the Samsung Galaxy S7 (even in 2017) is its high-end features and great performance at a relatively low price. While the new Galaxy S8 improves upon the S7, it will cost you a pretty penny. Budget-conscious buyers will be more than happy with the performance and features of the S7 and even happier saving some serious money in the process.

The battery is another great feature of the S7, lasting for a solid 12 to 15 hours of moderate use. The fact that the phone will survive most of the day is a great selling point. The design of the phone, while not ground-breaking, is beautiful. It’s size also makes it easy to hold, which is a nice perk as phones have continued to get bigger and bigger. Finally, the camera takes excellent photos and, thanks to upgraded sensors, that even holds true in low light conditions.

What we don’t like

Samsung makes some really great phones, but the operating system is often bogged down by bloatware. The Galaxy S7 is no exception to this. While the phone is smooth and responsive, the software could be streamlined. There are also a few quirks and features to the phone that should add convenience, but actually don’t really do that much. The phone features an “always on” display that allows you to glance at the phone to see the time and other basic information. While this saves a minuscule amount of battery when compared to waking the phone up, it really feels like the effort put into this feature could have been better spent cleaning up the software.

Lastly, though the Samsung Galaxy S7 packs some impressive power, it falls short when compared to the most recent round of smartphone releases. If you’re looking for the best performance out there, you may have to shell out for a 2017 model like the Galaxy S8 or Note8.

Should you buy it?

Overall, we can confidently recommend the Galaxy S7 as a solid high-end smartphone option. While it can’t keep up with more recent releases like the iPhone X and the Galaxy S8, it’s far cheaper and packs enough power to take care of most tasks. Add the beautiful design, great camera, and solid battery life to the equation and you’ve got a phone that continues to stay competitive more than a year after its release. If you’re looking for a good deal on a powerful smartphone that’s built by one of the best electronics brands out there, you’ll probably be extremely satisfied with the Samsung Galaxy S7.
