Rivne September 30 six months have passed from the moment when in private I use the Samsung Galaxy S7. A month after buying it I wrote to You a review which I’m pretty flattering about the new “galaxy”. Since then has performed flagowiec Koreans? Then I was with him as happy as in the beginning? You will learn in the following text.
a Lot of people interested in this device buys them in preorderze. A significant part of the day of the premiere or some time after it. There are, however, people who prefer to wait, read reviews from other users on Internet forums, watch or read many reviews. Immeasurable role in this issue is also price. In most cases, one of the most important aspects. As you know, the farther away from the premiere, the prices are becoming more interesting, and promotions in stores is becoming more and more tempting.
Why I write about it all? Because many people still do not know whether Galaxy S7 worth attention and how it will carry out after prolonged use. Does not know that it is better to wait for its successor in the Samsung Galaxy S8 or maybe choose something from the competition? Can HTC 10? Can LG G5? Maybe Huawei P9? In all likelihood, an interesting smartphone that aspires to become flagowca, quite a lot. Not without significance is also the approaching holidays. This is the moment in which sellers will have to try it all the best promotions, is a time when many users have decided to replace their smartphones.
RELIABILITY IS the KEY TO SUCCESS…
… ie that works perfectly in any situation.
to Begin with, that has not changed since my April reviews. This thing is nothing like a camera. All this time works fine. Perfectly fulfills its task. As if that wasn’t enough, over time I have learned it is much better to use. Lately a lot use manual mode where I have the opportunity to adjust various settings at his discretion. This allows you to make even better pictures. One thing is for sure. Galaxy S7 has great camera that will satisfy fans of mobile photography and not only. I myself stopped using compacts. I am not a professional photographer, and the sensor installed in the product, the Koreans, of course, is enough for me. Below are some photos of my authorship, made “es seven”, of course, without any processing in graphics programs.
As the smartphone and the screen. These two things in our time are inextricably linked with each other hand in hand. Here, there’s no surprise. Nothing has changed. Screen still I am very happy. There can be no question of any firing (don’t use “Always On Display”). All this time works flawlessly. Perfectly responds to the touch. Nothing to complain about.
the fingerprint scanner still works fine. Effective. Performs its task. However, recent tests Huawei Nova Plus convinced me that this element can be done better. Many gestures which used Huawei doing that reading becomes even more useful. Also Samsung, I expect a similar step in the new flagowcu for 2017.
the truth came out…
… then there are the flaws that I found after prolonged use of the device. And many of them.
Start with performance because this is one of the things that I was most disappointed. The devil is in the details. Didn’t even realize how much is given to me to test it out on the example of Galaxy S7.
At first glance everything looks fine. However the experienced eye will quickly pay attention to scratches fingerprint scanner. Easy to spot on the three deep scratches and a few micro rysek. It turns out that the lack of use of sapphire glass, unlike smartphones with the logo gnawed Apple. Moreover, it turns out, the lack of the use of any glass. The same applies to “fast”, which protects the heart rate monitor. It is also scratch – less, but nonetheless.
No such bad to good came. Something in this. But from the very beginning. In August, he started me unstick the screen at the bottom of the device. Himself with himself. The phone did not fall, were not affected. Less than 5 months of use and such? No, unfortunately… it Happens to even the most “giants”. I will only add that the screen itself works flawlessly. Referring to the newly opened service center in Warsaw – Samsung Premium Service Plaza, I decided to check its quality. I only maintenance that I would come the next day. So I did. I took the phone along with the documents and I went. All repairs lasted an hour! Yes, it is an hour. The service was professional, courteous and competent. As it should be. Happy I came with a fully functional phone.
the review praised the battery life. Next is quite good, but the previous level, unfortunately, is not enough. SOT (Screen on Time) is worse in any case 30 minutes to 1 hour. In addition, Galaxy S7 has problems with the cultural handling of the battery at rest. The percent fall noticeably faster than in the beginning. The problem is most missing after the last update, marked as G930FXXU1BPH6. Nevertheless, summing up, the battery in most cases allows for one full day of work, which for me is satisfied with the result.
CULTURE operation of the DEVICE IMPORTANT
on the Internet you can find a lot of reviews that the pad from Samsung is not better optimized UI and can get into a stupor. Yes and no… In General, the smartphone works flawlessly. All works instantly. But sometimes the situation is that reboots, not often, uśredniając: every 3 weeks. Well, this is the charm of Android and TouchWiz overlays. I have been also cases that without cause the device to deliver the application. However, most of the time you can count on him.
Turning now to the question of temperatures. There are no miracles. A smartphone can significantly heat up during simultaneous charging and device usage. In addition, during the game, which happens rarely, clearly feel the temperature rise. In the review I mentioned that the temperature of operation of the device is decent. After half a year of continuous operation I have, however, to change his mind.
I’m Very interested in another upgrade. Currently, Samsung bravely releases security patches, by the way, making minor changes. Unfortunately, history has taught me that it’s not always so colorful. Galaxy S6 has got any Marshmallows in March; Galaxy Note 4 has already received Android Lollipop, it has significantly decreased battery life. It is a kind of lottery in the performance of this manufacturer. As will be, time will tell, but personally I don’t expect miracles and admiration.
I Believe that the updates, which instead to improve the performance of Galaxy S7 are kind of the Achilles Heel of this device. First of all, we are talking about battery life, and handling it when the phone lies on the table or in a pants pocket, and the screen is off. I will only add that after each update of the system przywracałem device to factory settings and konfigurowałem them again.
HOW, IN the END, IT is the GALAXY S7?
– It’s not bad, but not without flaws. Six months later, in fact, I quite happy with them. Usually it can rely on. However, optimization of the system and great attention to detail much more enhances the comfort of use of this device. Do I regret buying? I think not. But all the time on the head I desire to change to something else. Can iOS? Again Android? I do not know…
anyway, the Galaxy S7 is one of the leading flagowców on Android, and buying it, in most cases, you should be happy. Power should not miss it. Main advantage is, of course, the camera and screen. Just great. Most users should not complain about a battery that easily lasts all day using the device. I only hope that Samsung applies to much more in future updates “es seven” to optimize UI. Because of this you can use for this smartphone even more enjoyable.
