I think the 64GB model will be available later but I was only able to preorder the 32GB from Rogers.

Anyway Zero, thanks for the advice earlier on. Got to play with the new S7s today and am utterly impressed. Preordered the S7 Edge and will get it around he 11th. Can't wait.

And as usual the US gets ****ed when it comes to capacities.

Oh well, I've made 16GB(8GB usable) in my S5 work for all this time, 32GB will be a welcome change even if it's only around 22GB.

So I was getting massive battery drain and realized it's due to my display mode being set to cinema pro and not adaptive. That is weird that forcing proper rgb is so battery demanding.

Not just the US, EU doesn't get 64GB, I'm not entirely sure Canada will either.

Did you not add any more storage? The mini-SD cards are dirt cheap now. I don't know what I'd do without it, truthfully...

Correction- It is a 2+2. Simple Quad Core. :-)

On the stock 5.1.1 Android Note 5.... The 7420 can handle being OC'd a bit more than it is clocked right now. The problem is, the task scheduler doesn't cap out the clock speeds on the Note 5. During the Antutu benchmark, it maxed out the clocks for 12.8 seconds on the A53 cores. The A57 cores maxxed out at 1,296Mhz with a random "spike" to 2.1Ghz. It wasn't thermal throttling either. CPU temp sensor was saying 107F during this test max and spent most of its time below 103F. Battery was reading 89-92F.

I have never run the Antutu bench on the Note 5 with Android 6.0.1 on it though so, I will have to try that later and see if they improved the task scheduler. Its A57 cores I have clocked to 2.4Ghz and the A53 cores to 1.6Ghz on it.

Hey Chuck, How much are the retail prices on the phones in HK? The S7 and S7 Edge. (and if there are any differences in price for the Qualcomm or Exynos versions)

Magus did you get a chance to test S7 Exynos 8890 vs S7 820?

Where are the scratches on your phone btw? Aren't the front and back covered in GG4? What do you think caused them?

Scratches are on the back on the bottom. Looks like the phone has a bit of a lip and it has scuff marks from being naked.

Not yet. I will try to get it done today.

For me the biggest problem is unable to install apps on the SD card, ofcourse Google made it possible to make the SD card a glorified internal memory expansion, but no one seems to use the feature.

Funnily enough my S5 and S7 Edge have the exact screentime right now.



S5 is sitting at 39%. S7 has been benchmarked a bunch. It should only get better too.

The second one clearly has more detail and less noise on the wall. The S7 does have a very nice camera.

Well, since my ancient S3 is finally starting to crap out, looks like time to upgrade. With a Gear VR tossed in, looks like an S7 might be fun.

Another S5 comparison:



This was taken with one lamp turn on to the left of the subject.

I had the option of GearVR or the Gear S2 watch, I picked the watch because it's worth more if I just want to sell it and I won't want to take my phone out of the case every time I want to use VR.

Gotta say my V10 had better battery than the S7 Edge. I actually find the active battery life to be pretty poor.

I'm probably going to get 4.5 hours of screentime for my first charge cycle, and that's with me doing tons of benchmarking and no wifi here at work. I hit 6hrs screentime with my S5 once, usually got around 3.5-4hrs before it was a low percentage. Lots of people at XDA are getting 6-7hrs routinely.

Was supposed to have mine yesterday. The weather we're having down here has affected it getting here. Oh well, can't get too worked up over that. At least I have The Division to hold me over. Don't even have that right now. Stupid work....

Ugh you guys are making me want to walk into T-mobile and jump to the S7 after I swore off Samsung again after the S6.

Does it have all the touchwiz jank the S6 did? The experience was far too laggy for me to be OK with.

So I think my unit has some issues. I can barely get 2 hours of screen time by 50% battery and my device charges painfully slow.

Here is fast charging at 69%, it's suppose to be an hour and a half from 0% to 100%. Not even close here.

Isn't it supposed to be super fast at lower percentages and then slowing down as you top off?

That's how my Nexus 6 was.

Gave me a 4 hour estimate when it was at 40% yesterday.

Walked into local JB Hifi today. Didn't realise today was release day for the S7. My S3 has been dying for the last few weeks, random blue-screens.

Asked if they had any S7s in stock. They had 4 left, all Edges. As we were talking, some Chinese guy came in and bought three of them.

I bought the last one.

Won't use it until I get my Otterbox cover for it. Will also pick up a GearVR to play around with when they are in stock.

the camera sure is something you'll have to see to believe its quality. The batterylife on the other hand seems to be not that cool as most of us wished.

The 32GB isn't that much of a problem due to the mini-sd-cards, the S7 can stomach up to 200 GB that way.

I'm still waiting for my screen protectors so it's sitting in the plastic it came in, but inside a case at least. I'm not even putting it in my pocket, still carrying it around in the damn box. Hate that I waited until everything was backordered to order that ****.

I have another low light picture comparison I'll post in a bit. It's insane how far they came in two phone generations.


EDIT: This tool doesn't work to well here because I moved my hand too much, but meh. I like it anyway.

And, and to the above, I'm at 42% charging right now and it says about 1h4m left to fully charge it.

EDIT: 42% at 10:59, 50% at 11:06.

EDIT: 62% at 11:16.

Used my S7 Edge for a day and overall impressions are good.

Pros:
- The Camera is insanely good. Dual pixel tech isn't marketing hype. I've never seen a smartphone camera focus so fast. Night shots much sharper than the 6S.

- Build quality is superb. The S6 and S7 are the only Android smartphone series I've seen that matches the iPhone.

- Call are less muddled than the 6S.

- Speaker is loud and clear for a smartphone.

- Sexiest smartphone I have seen to date. Makes iPhones look like knockoffs.

- AMOLED screen has nice punchy colours and has less motion blur compared to my 6S' IPS screen. PPI difference is barely noticeable though.

- 5.5" screen and it doesn't feel big at all. Fits in my pocket perfectly without that annoying bulge.

- First Snapdragon phone I have owned that doesn't overheat while gaming.

Cons:
- This is a nitpick but the home button is overly "clicky" for my taste. Compared to the 6S home button, makes more noise and feels more stiff than I am accustomed to.

- are pretty much guaranteed to muffle the speaker whenever you play games in landscape orientation.

- Game Launcher crashes often.

- Edge screen is a gimmick and has discolouration on the edges. Extremely noticeable on a white background.

- Snapdragon 820 is a thirsty mofo. Battery life suffers and phone lasts on medium brightness around the same as my 6S. A bit disappointing for a 3600Mah battery imho.

I know this doesn't sound like it but I finally feel there's a phone I'd most probably at least keep a year. Don't know why but it's just too damn sexy.
