    Amazing phone, but no talking & surfing seriously?

    This phone is seriously gorgeous, powerful, and amazing in every way but one. Unfortunately it's a big flaw by today's standards... you cannot "talk & surf" at the same time. In other words, while you're on a phone call you cannot use the internet, nor send an email that you were just writing prior to the call, etc. This problem was quite honestly a total shock to me as my previous phone was a Samsung Galaxy S4 - which had no problem whatsoever multi-tasking like that, ever. I had my old phone for three years and I multi-tasked calls and data usage all the time with my Galaxy S4 in fact. It turns out that the Samsung Galaxy S4 (and Galaxy S5 too for that matter) have dual antennas - one for phone calls and one for data connection. So the much older Samsung phones worked great. Apparently Samsung - for whatever reason - decided to cut some corners and remove the dual antennas on all the Galaxy S7 phones. This is really bad news if your phone carrier uses the CDMA cellular system (like Sprint, Verizon, others...) as CDMA cannot accommodate talking & surfing simultaneously. The only way around this problem is if you are connected to a useable Wi-Fi network somewhere - which is just a bandaid, obviously. If you want to talk & surf on a Galaxy S7 phone then you'll need to have a GSM system phone (like AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.). This is a deal-breaker for me. I take business calls all the time while I'm emailing, or need to look something up online during a call - business related or not. With my Galaxy S7 on this network - I need to excuse myself from the call and hang up first, then look up what I need quickly, then make another call and hope to continue where I left off with whom I was speaking to... not so easy when you're on a conference call or speaking to a specific customer service rep about an issue you have. My smartphone is basically my do-everything device, and it should be too. By 2016 standards this is ludicrous and totally unacceptable. Samsung failed to continue using dual antennas and these CDMA networks (Sprint & Verizon namely) cannot handle multi-tasking without the right phone. You'll need a phone with dual antennas or buy a Galaxy S7 on a GSM network like AT&T or T-Mobile.

    I'm so glad I waited!

    So far I am really happy with this phone! My Note 2 could have been upgraded quite awhile ago, but I didn't like any of the phones out there when I was hunting for a new one over the past year. And I was completely disgusted with the direction Samsung was going when it didn't allow us to change the battery - but worse yet, it didn't even allow us to add the extra storage which was a major advantage Samsung phones offered over the iPhones! If I had wanted all of the annoyances of owning an Apple product, I would have BOUGHT and Apple product. These things are too expensive to buy one that isn't everything it should be - and like most people, I need and want as much storage as I can get . I do not want to have to worry about pulling it off of a cloud when I am in a place without service. I do not want to be tied to one company forever because all of my stuff is being held hostage by the company and/or cloud service that controls my phone. I want control over my own storage, thank you very much, although I do use several cloud services to store and transfer digital files (small to huge) for my work. So instead of dumping money into the disappointing phone options of the past year, I waited. The minute I heard what this new Samsung S7 Edge offered, I was sure I wanted to upgrade to it if the hype stood up to the reviews. First of all, I have a very nice 64 GB SD card that Best Buy provided for free with a pre-order of the phone and I have moved all of my important personal and business files onto the new card and still have plenty of room left. As this one fills up, I can simply remove it and replace the card with another one, but keep my files if I want to. Second of all, I don't ever want to test my phone by getting it wet. But it's nice to know that if the phone gets wet by accident, there is a very good chance I'll still have a functional phone afterward! I have never bought a phone without waiting for other people to purchase and review it. I have always chosen to wait awhile for all of the new-phone kinks to be worked out of it. But I'm so glad I didn't wait this time! The S7 Edge does have a couple of teeny little kinks I've noticed - nothing at all big, or even anything that I would go so far as to describe as "annoying", but I figure they are the types of things that might be tweaked during updates. Actually, as I write this, I want to share what those "kinks" are, and they are apparently so very small that I'm staring at my phone and can't even remember a single one of them! Yup! I LOVE this phone! I absolutely would recommend it to anyone who needs a phone for business purposes, as I do.

    Second best phone in the world

    Despite her protests (my phone is just fine - I don't need a ndw one), I bought this S7 edge to replace my wife's old S4. She has been very pleased with the call quality (clarity and signal strength), and increased speed. She was initially put off by the increased size vs. her S4, but has now come to appreciate it, especially for showing off photos of the grand kids. She and her friends also have been astonished by the ease of use and quality of the pictures it takes as well. Good move by Samsung to return to expandable storage, BTW. Although I was hesitant because they didn't return to removable batteries as well, my wife seldom (maybe never) put the backup battery into her S4. Even better, the embedded battery in the S7 Edge holds a charge for a very long time (she can use it continuously starting at 8 a.m. and still be at 70% at 7 p.m.). The Qi quick charge feature further reduces the fear of losing battery power. Smartphones really have become our "multipurpose digital assistants" and this phone is a great reason why. Per the title of this review, I bought a Note 7 (the best phone in the world - also reviewed here on Best Buy) on Day 1. While I was waiting for the replacements to be released, I thought about just trading it in for an S7 Edge. Despite owning a Note 3 for three years, I never used the stylus that much and other than that feature, the lack of an iris scanner, and 32GB (vice 64GB) of internal memory, there's not much difference between the two phones. Because of the efficiency of Samsung's replacement process, I received my "non-exploding" Note 7 the first day it was available, but am confident I would have been very happy with the S7 Edge as well. This is really a great product.

    SAMSUNG? Never again

    Posted
    Robert

    I was a huge Samsung fan until today 9/15/2017. Last weekend my s7 edge phone discharged so I decided to charge it. Mind you my expensive phone is only 18 months old. Well for some reason as it charged I could not bring up the main screen. I messed with it for hours and it came to life once where I noticed it was in an update before the meltdown. Long story short tried soft reset factory reset, hours online and on phone with Samsung. Sent phone to Samsung in Texas where they decided if I wanted it fixed it's another $270 bucks...WHAT??? Are they crazy? So my phone melts down during your update and you can't replace it or send a refurbished phone even if it means saving face and keeping a customer? Your note 7 caught fire, my s7 crashes and you can't even hold out an olive branch to try to keep a customer who has been true to your product? NOPE!! It was at that point I decided to never buy a Samsung product again. I was a huge Samsung fan and braggart about my 800 dollar phone (now a paperweight) and they didn't give a rats rear end about my dilemma. I told them Apple would never treat me this way and the manager hung up on me. So much more to what these reps did but no time to air it all here. Just be wise and DO NOT BUY A SAMSUNG PRODUCT IF YOU WANT GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND QUALITY BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE IT!!!! I bought my phone at Best Buy but they couldn't help me. If this stops one person from buying a Samsung phone it was worth it. 800 bucks out the window...ouch. Funny all my Apple products have been trouble free for years too bad I passed on the IPhone. It is definitely in my future now. Samsung you messed with the wrong guy. Your conduct will be posted everywhere that I have an opportunity.

    I really like the feel of the phone, it is light weight, sleek glass, and sound quality is good. It has a lot of options to customize the experience and the processor is super fast. If you're a gamer using older model androids you'll love the speed and graphics quality. It keeps up without lag.I wrote the same review for my AT&T phone but will note here that if you are on Sprint trying to use this phone you cannot talk and surf at the same time. That means if you are driving while using GPS and you get a phone call, you better park. When I found this out I was furious because I drive a lot for sales and I need to be able to talk and GPS at the same time. So, I switched to AT&T because they are currently the only carrier that can let you do both, because of their upgraded cell phone towers. Sprint and Verizon are behind on this addition. Hope this info helps the next person because I was surprised. But you'll love the phone.

    I lost my employer provided Samsung when I left the company and needed to get my own phone. I wanted a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge but got a standard Galaxy S6 instead because it was offered for a good price with the carrier service I took. I then learned that the carrier did not have unlimited data. Buyers regret? I found that Best Buy had a "buy out" offer to switch to a carrier with a less expensive plan that offered unlimited data AND get a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for less AND get a $200.00 Best Buy cash card. I couldn't pass it up. I got the Edge phone I originally wanted and saved on cell service, and got a plan with unlimited talk, text and data. I never had insurance for a phone before but, because a friend lost her phone and another broke hers and they did not have insurance I decided to use the $200.00 to buy the insurance plan from Best Buy for 2 years. The cost of my friends phone repair was about as much as the two year cost of insurance and, as I understand it, the insurance also covers loss or theft. I use my Galaxy for everything from time management to exercise tracking etc. I especially like that Samsung has its own apps that are free, useful and convenient. In my experience "free" apps from the play store push ads etc. and may require access to information on my phone that I would like to keep private. I'll always have a Galaxy!

    I'd had the Galaxy S3 since it first came out and it was starting to die, not holding a charge etc. Tried the Apple iPhone 7 for two weeks, liked it a lot, but didn't love it. BB had the Galaxy S7 edge, which I've wanted since it came out, on special over Black Friday-Cyber Monday weekend. I was able to get the phone I wanted, with a free Gear VR plus $50 worth of Occulus content AND a $400 gift card! I'm glad I waited!! The phone arrived in a couple of days and it is phenomenal! I'm on a Sprint plan and the call quality is great, features and built in useful tools are cool though I did disable some like Instagram and Samsung Pay. The camera is excellent, video is 4K, speaker for calls, music, YouTube etc is almost as good as the iPhone (which to me was it's best feature.) The screen for the S7 edge looks very cool, it's huge at 5.5", though it does take some getting used to holding it so you don't touch buttons when you're typing or swipping to text. The customization is endless; fonts, colors, themes etc etc. It's truly a mini computer. It was very fast on 4G connection and now that I finally have Internet (15mbps) this phone is lightning fast!! Streaming video to my phone or to Google Chromecast is a breeze. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone looking for a quality, high end phone that they use a lot like I do.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT BREAK THIS PHONE

    I did a lot of research on reviews for this phone before I purchased it, and it had such positive reviews, I decided to go for it. Little did I know, it would cost a fortune to fix the screen when I dropped it 17 days after I got it. I don't usually keep insurance because I think it costs too much, and there are too many stipulations, you have to go to a sprint repair center which is not usually convenient, mine is 30 miles away, but thank God I decided to put it on this phone since I got 3 quotes from local cell phone repair centers in town, the cheapest was $210, but another dealer quoted me $320! So I called the repair center, and was told they do not keep parts for this phone in stock, and that I would have to mail it to be repaired, and be without my phone for 5 business days, but they couldn't guarantee I would even get it then! And no loaner phones are offered! so here I am waiting for it to be repaired, hoping they can fix it because the deductible for that is $100, but if they have to replace it, its $200! Oh, and let me add that I DID HAVE a case on my phone when it fell less than 3 feet onto the sidewalk. I don't want a phone where I have to be just as worried about it as I do my other valuables. I should have kept my galaxy 6.
