Samsung Galaxy S7 Games
The long-awaited Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have finally arrived — and they’re everything we hoped they would be. Announced at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Samsung has again released two variants of the S7 — both similar at the core, but with a few subtle differences. Last year’s Samsung offering was a big one with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and this time around Samsung has made its 2016 phones even better than ever before.
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 will be the mainstream phone for most users. The S7 is also water and dust resistant with an IP68 rating, and no port flaps to be found. The S5 shared the same waterproof status, but with the more-than-annoying plastic flap covering the charging port. Speaking of which — Samsung has stuck with the standard microUSB port on the S7, rather than opting for the newer USB-C port.
The Galaxy S7 is one of the first Samsung phones to jump to Android 6.0, which comes pre-installed on the handset. That’s running on top of two different chipsets: the Qualcomm 820 CPU and Samsung’s own Exynos unit plus 4GB of RAM, which means the S7 is able to handle really meaty tasks like stitching together 360-degree video on the fly from the new Gear 360 camera. Both engines offer a huge amount of power and graphical grunt to make the stuff on the phone’s display shine - with the Exynos nipping ahead in the benchmarks. Samsung has told techradar that the intention is to use the Snapdragon 820 in US markets, and the Exynos for Europe and most other parts of the world.
