Last year's Samsung Galaxy S6 launch was a huge departure for a company that had begun to take for granted that its name was synonymous with Android. After years of doing pretty much anything it liked and still staying at the top of global sales charts, Samsung was starting to see signs that plastic phones with bloated software and thoughtless design weren't going to cut it anymore, especially when the rest of the industry was beginning to ship phones that felt luxurious and slick.

    Shohrat Shankar (Apr 25, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    Got this little over a week ago and find it to be an awesome phone Pros: Great design & fantastic looks Edge features Good battery Fast & smooth performance Samsung email app has many formatting features missing from other apps Amazing camera good editing features too 32gb storage with micro sd card instead of 2nd sim Though screen is big, easy to carry and feels good in pocket Screen is vibrant and has great visibility even in sunlight. Cons: Touch wiz could be better Costly (not sure if it's worth the price) Not used it off games tet, so not sure of that performance But if you want a gorgeous phone with super performance, camera & battery then go for this.

  • Samsung S7 & S7 edge wifi keeps disconnecting
    Vinesh Zeus (Jun 22, 2019) on Gadgets 360
    I have used Samsung S7 Edge in the year 2016 & 2017 two years. Experienced no issues at all, later switched to apple for a year then came back to Android with same Samsung S7 edge device, after the release of S8 & S9. I started to experience a weird issue. The internet connectivity on the home Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting. I must turn off the Wi-Fi then turn it on to make it work, and after a period of time the issue re-occurs. This is totally irritating, I must toggle ON & OFF switch for wi-Fi under settings options (which is not a big deal, but yet) every time to make the internet active. At times when I keep the phone in idle; the internet connection goes off, which I am not even aware of and I tend to miss important mails. The issue does not occur if I am using the mobile data; the internet stays connected for a very long time; the same issue does not occur if I am connected to my office WI-FI or restaurant WI-FI. The issue only persists for my home WI-FI Initially I though this is my internet ISP provider issue, then thought it?s the router issue, later when I started to use my laptop; I have not experienced the same issue. Which rules out my ISP & router issues which is suspected, all the other devices in my home works perfectly except the Samsung S7 edge. I did few searches on the internet and found there are few other people who have experienced the same problem; with the solutions they have provided ? tried all the possible software configuration. Did reset the network settings, then finally did format the phone it observed it for few days. The issue has not occurred, then have done all the security updates to the phone and made the phone up to date with software update, there you go the issue popped up again. Totally irritated. Then I thought this might one device defect issue. Thought to give another change to Samsung brand. Gave the old phone to my finance who relays only on mobile data for internet. Then I bought a new phone Samsung S7; there was no issues for couple of days, did all software updates there you go ? the issue occurred again. I have been experiencing this issue for the last 6 months totally lost patience today as I have done this Wi-Fi switch toggle today exactly for 67 times for the last 6 hours; though I have not been using the mobile device for the whole 6 hours. I would say I have used my phone for 2 or 3 hours where I have ended up toggling the Wi-Fi switch. Like apple did to drain out the device batteries for Apple devices, I guess Samsung found this way to irritate users to switch phones. I must confess here to Samsung that you have succeed in your plan, as now I have given up the Samsung S7 and the Samsung brand. Not a big fan of Chinese brand but lately with the devices that Huawei manufactures I have decided to go with Huawei brand. Good bye Samsung.

  • Good high-end smartphone
    Jones Huang (Jun 23, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is really an impressive high-end smartphone. No matter with the specifications and quality. But meanwhile, the price is high. For those who want to buy a smartphone but with limited budget, just like me. We want good affordable smartphone. Last week, my friend suggested me to get the new smartphone from Bluboo company, Maya for only $69.99, but with 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, 3000mAh battery, 8MP front camera, 13MP Sony back camera and Android 6.0 OS, what do you think of this device?
