Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Compared to the “Old” Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

With the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edgand now officers, it’s time for a first comparison compared to the terminals of a generation ago — Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Comparing this year is particularly interesting for a number of reasons, mainly around what has been the evolution of Edge brand. In fact, last year we didn’t have a previous generation Galaxy Edge with which to compare the model presented, while in this round we can witness how the line Edge, born almost like a spin off of 4 Notes before and S6 later, has acquired its own identity, to the point where they represent a separate category.

Contrary to what happened last year, it is difficult to identify in a Galaxy Galaxy S7 Edge “Variant” S7: these are two different products which, especially in terms of size, they occupy different market segments according to PhoneJust.

But the main differences between the new and the older generation are not summarized only by switching to a display from 5.5 ” to Galaxy S7 Edge (while on the S7 remains to 5.1″ as last year), but pass through a series of small improvements that have, in fact, canceled almost all of the “weaknesses” of the previous Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

We talk about the return of impermeability and the microSD expansion slot, while it remains impossible to manually replace the battery, although this year we are faced with two very interesting drive from well 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh, against those from 2550 2600 mAh mAh Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

The new batteries have led to an increase in thickness of 1.1 mm for Galaxy S7, often 7.9 mm against the 6.8 mm S6and S7 7.7 mm to 0.7 mm Edge against the previous 7.0 mm S6 Edge. Thick has also made it possible to reduce the overhang of the dedicated camera module. The camera is another particular difference between the new and the old generation of Galaxy cluster. Abandoned the 16 MegaPixel sensor good f/1.9 on S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung offers us a new sensor from 12 Megapixels f/1.7 that integrates the newest technologies DualPixel and larger pixels.

Finally, there is also an update of the hardware platform, thanks to the presence of Exynos 8890 and 4 GB of RAM on Edge, S7, S7 against former Exynos 7420 and 3 GB of RAM, LPDDR4 for both models Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

A peculiarity of Exynos 8890 to its high flexibility that allows him to exceed the standard limit of 2.6 GHz, 2.3 GHz, well when the operation running requires the use of only two core. This mode, much like the Turbo Boost, is made possible thanks to the work done by Samsung oncore M1 composing the high-powered processor cluster.
