Samsung Galaxy S7 First Impressions and Overview!

First impressions of the Galaxy S7? This may be a bold statement, but I truly believe this will hands down be the phone in 2016. I have always been a fan of Samsung, and they really knocked it out of the park this year. The S7 is like a polished S6, and in many ways, it is.

It offers two different processing packages, with one variant supporting Samsung’s in house Exynos 8890, and Snapdragon returning with its 820 chip after it’s tragic 2015 year. Both variants come with 6gb of RAM, and the MicroSD card slot returns, but not with the removable back. It seems that Samsung is taking the Nexus approach, with fewer pixels but the pixel size is larger overall.
