Video on the subject

The Galaxy S7 is there and thus the new flagship of Samsung. The test shows whether the S7 has the stuff to the best smartphone. Samsung Galaxy S7 in the test: the new upper class

Samsung Galaxy S7: Update frequency

 

Who himself has already bought a Galaxy S7, finds that Samsung provides firmware updates for the device regularly. Currently, new software every month comes out to fix security vulnerabilities and to fix bugs in the operating system. Also comes also a or to another new function. In the April update, it was, for example, the ability to shrink the shown icons and elements to find more content per screen space.

The first impression: The new Galaxy S7

 

Who throws only a glimpse of the new S7, will see little difference to the predecessor of S6. Front and rear glass are also on the S7. A stable metal corset wearing, the whole of which is visible at the edges of a metal frame. In touch, however, you can feel the difference immediately: the S7 is more pleasant, less edgy in his hand. The reason: The Galaxy-S7 design receives round edges. Unlike at the edge-design not the display is front rounded but, but the back. A similar construction already existed when the Galaxy traded in Germany not rated 5. There’s a direct comparison between the S6 predecessors, the new S7 and S7 edge in the photo spread, as well as in this video. That both back and front out there are glass, brought the S7 also benefits: the diamond of the test device could leave no visible scratches on display or case back at normal pressure.

The Galaxy S7 is handy

 

Compared to the edge of the S7, the regular S7 is almost small and conventional. Because while the Galaxy S7 edge with 5.5-inch display diagonal has grown quite a bit, the Galaxy S7 as its predecessor Galaxy S6 just handy display size of 5.1 inches remains. Shows the measurement in the laboratory: with 150 grams it is significantly heavier than the S6. But because it grows quickly. At one point but the S7 design can not convince the traditionalists: also the new housing can be easily opened for repairs or seen how much trouble a battery in an exclusive video test engineers at the opening of the Galaxy S7 housing had to give.

Galaxy S7: Waterproof without flap

 

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 in 2014, the faith was: soon all smartphones are waterproof. Pandey! The following Galaxy S6 had to take back before heavy rain and puddles in eight. What a step backwards! However, with the Galaxy S7, everything is fine again: the casing is again dust – and waterproof, according to IP68 standard, which allows a half-hour soaking up to 1 m water depth. Based on the preliminary series device COMPUTER could not verify still picture the assertion, but the concept seems even better implemented than in the Galaxy S5: annoying sealing caps, as they covered the charge socket in the S5, Samsung has refused. A free flotierende rubber seal, which carefully press was about the Galaxy S5 to the restoration of the Akkudeckels in place, does not exist. Of the internal sealing of the housing is to see anything from the outside, are also seeing no conspicuous gap. Thus, there is also nothing can slip or by dirt particles to leak. By the way: In the Galaxy-S7-design study demonstrated Our site, how to implement a replaceable battery also in the precious metal glass case could be with a screwed back.

The screen test

 

Sensational contrasts, vibrant colors even with partial views and high brightness reserves: Already the screen of the Galaxy S6 was top. However, the S7 Samsung puts another one on it, reached about twice as high contrast (3277:1 instead of 1-1504) such as the S6 and a color fidelity of 94.50%. Remain the high brightness reserves of over 700 candela, which only activated in automatic mode, when one is in bright ambient light. With 719,2 candela, the laboratory at the S7 minimal determined lower brightness values as at the edge of the S7, but these differences are likely to be barely noticeable in practice. For S7 colour fastness is better than the display of the S7 edge a touch.

How much memory can it be?

 

The Galaxy S6 came in different versions with up to 128 gigabytes of internal memory. He was faster and more reliable than a memory card, said Samsung and was thus not entirely wrong. However, many Galaxy fans felt the renunciation of cheap memory expansion as a step backwards. With the S7, Samsung will also here return to old virtues. As Galaxy A3 (2016) and Galaxy A5 (2016), users can extend also the S7 with memory cards up to 200 gigabytes. Clever: Wanders the memory card in the same slot as the Nano-SIM card. A mood killer we still have in stock: Samsung has removed the 128 GB version and will sell even the 64 GB version according to Our site not in Germany. A Galaxy S7 with a total of over 300 gigabytes of memory (128 GB + 200 GB) utopia remains. German customers must settle so the 32 GB variant, at 24.3 GB were freely available in the prior series device. Despite Android 6.0 but apps can be other than directly on memory card install in the HTC one A9. Also, the option to later move of individual apps on memory card has disappeared in the menu. The reason: Devices, their hot-swappable memory card, so it is removed during operation, Google closes the use of external memory cards for apps. It would have been better to leave the user free choice, how he wants to use his cards. Your Galaxy S7 & S7 edge cheap now! Mobile incl. triple-flat 5-GB-LTE volume, call & SMS-flat.

Samsung explains the memory problem

Now, Samsung has expressed to the backgrounds of the memory problem: a Samsung told Techradar.com, at the Galaxy S6 performance reasons for fast (internal) UFS to have chosen 2.0 and parallel DDR4 memory. In the Galaxy S7 succeeded then the developers, to combine the best of both worlds. The Galaxy S7 Samsung have decided against the possibility to include memory cards as part of the internal memory (adaptive memory). Because one must be completely deleted the map and was used for exchanging data with other devices, such as a computer or tablet, on the other hand no longer.

Less photo pixel: Can it go well?

 

The Galaxy S6 worked with a 16 mega pixel camera, which noticeably sticking out from the housing. Surprise: the S7 Samsung bakonyi from in the resolution of 12 megapixels, the camera optics is considerably thinner, protruding less than half a millimeter from the housing (previously 1.7 mm). The Galaxy S7 worse photos than the S6 is doing at the end? The opposite is the case! In strict laboratory test, the camera of the Galaxy S7 compared to its predecessor made a huge leap from the note satisfactory to good. With a daylight photo note of 2.42 (combined technical measurement and Visual Test) is now even a blink plus the Galaxy S7 iPhone 6 S and iPhone 6 S! Also in situations with little light, the S7 shows a measurably improved. However it is not enough here for the note well. The iPhone 6S is still better in low light, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL low light even a whole note over the Galaxy S7. This Samsung has done a lot in order to get more out of the photos even in darkness. So the Galaxy S7 used a still brighter lens with an aperture of f/1.7 (Galaxy S6: f/1.9). And thanks to the reduced number of mega pixels each pixel on the sensor itself can capture more light.

Autofocus with built-in Turbo

 

Also the auto focus, even in the S6 pretty fast, works in the S7 impressive: that the auto-focus video test by COMPUTER makes visible image for everyone. A so-called DualPixel sensor makes it possible. This means that there are two sensors per pixel. The distance and the direction of the sharp zustellenden object is determined from the difference of there occur signals. Single lens reflex cameras such as the Canon 70 d already offer a similar technology. When the shutter lag, however, also the S7 at the pace can pass not on the iPhone 6 S, which was twice as fast with 0.1 seconds in the test photo booth as the S7 (0.22 seconds).

 

Our site design study: looks like our wish-S7

Is the Galaxy S7 faster than the rest?

 

The Galaxy S6 was already fast, the S7 is faster. Samsung’s new eight-core processor of Exynos 8 octa 8890 and 4 gigabytes of memory (RAM) drive it (at least in the European version). Apps launch very quickly, but also the S6 was here not necessarily slow. The full power fully irritates it especially for graphics-intensive applications and games. In the Antutu benchmark test, the S7 models reached peak values of less than 130 000 points. This surpasses the performance of the S6 to more than half of the S7 family and outperforms the competition! Except Apple’s iPhone 6S plus, which on similar values comes, can keep up here not a Smartphone. But benchmarks are one thing, a practice others: here is no speed advantage over the S6, part is faster, sometimes even slow the S7. More power is often linked to more waste heat: the hotter the processor, the more he curbs his performance. So what is not too fast, Samsung the S7 has a water cooling system that missed had previously only the Lumia 950 XL.

Galaxy S7: Strong battery brings little

The battery in the S7 is clearly stronger than in the S6 (2,550 mAh) with 3,000 milliampere hours (mAh). But the more energy brought in the standard mix of uses in the our site lab no advantage: with 8 hours 52 minutes the term is in heavy use at the same low level as in the Galaxy S6 (9 hours 16 minutes). The Stromspartricks are however difficult to measure in the laboratory, brings the Android 6 with his deep sleep mode for extended non-use with it. However, these are also the old Galaxy-S6 models available after the update from Android 6. As had also the Galaxy S7 can be with the supplied Turbo power supply load quickly, in half an hour, the battery is almost half filled. The pressure fueling works now even wireless: so far took much longer than via cable with the supplied quick charger. The Galaxy S7 can handle now also wireless higher charge currents, as already the Galaxy S6 edge, and to load according to Samsung wireless faster than some earlier Smartphone via cable. For this a special charging cradle is necessary however, which is relatively clunky, has an own fan and provoked some criticism on Amazon reviews.
