RATING
Based on 47 reviews

With the release of Samsung’s latest flagship series, they’re offering two versions of their top-tier phone. The Galaxy S7 Edge offers a few upgrades from the S7, though there is little difference in the performance of the two phones.

Differences include:
A larger, curved screen coming in at 5.5-inches
Slightly lower pixel density due to running the same resolution as the S7’s smaller display
A slightly larger battery rated at 3600mAh
A higher price tag for the S7 Edge

Otherwise, you’re looking at identical specifications and features. For a deeper look at what reviews around the web are saying about the new S7 series from Samsung, check out our product summary of the Galaxy S7!

Remains the best big phone money can buy

The Galaxy S7 edge is no longer the semi-gimmick it was before. Although some of the main features are things from the Galaxy S5 – Micro-SD and waterproofing – Samsung has given fans what they want. It's now a refined, sophisticated and highly desirable piece of technology. The battery isn't removable but the phone lasts longer than before and has seriously powerful specs under the hood. It has almost everything you could want from a phone even though the IR blaster is gone. We're also very impressed with the new camera and unless the screen is too big for you (despite some software features to help out) we think it's worth getting the S7 edge for the extra £70 with its gorgeous looks and extra functionality. Right now, this is the best smartphone money can buy.

Not only convincing, but nearing perfection

From the Galaxy S6's announcement, I knew that Samsung was back on the right track.

From the Galaxy S6's announcement, I knew that Samsung was back on the right track. The S7 not only solidifies that opinion, it also puts Samsung several steps ahead of the competition, at a level where it's nearing perfection. My only two real quibbles with the phone skew from its design: the edge screen looks fantastic but creates more issues than it solves them, and the fingerprint reader isn't as precise because of its raised non-delimited position, but that's it.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge manages to tick all the boxes for an excellent smartphone in 2016, being the handset that the S6 Edge should’ve been. Fantastic camera? Check. Large battery? yep. Waterproof design? Indeed. Now, if someone could tell the company to drop the price or come up with an inexpensive high-end phone.

The Android flagship to beat

The Galaxy S7 edge does deliver on most fronts – display is good, performance is fast, camera is excellent, battery life will take you through the day. There were barely any major flaws that we found, except for the fingerprint scanner which did not impress.

A bigger and more attractive version of the Classic Galaxy S7

Basically everything we said about the Galaxy S7 applies to the S7 edge as well. However, there are a couple of additional improvements to the edge version, like the larger 5.5-inch screen and the higher capacity of the battery, which tip the scale in favor of the latter. Furthermore, the curves on the sides of the display make the phone appear more interesting and bring a couple of additional neat features.

Edge almighty

from Softpedia

It goes without saying that the S7 Edge deserves a chance if you're looking for a truly powerful Android device that can compete against the iPhone. It's waterproof, so you can play with it when taking a bath, and looks quite promising to become a fashion statement.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge doesn’t have many faults. It might be Samsung’s best device yet. It feels nice in the hand and is easy to use for having a massive 5.5-inch display. However, I’ve found that the “Edge” isn’t very useful, and if that’ll bother you, the Galaxy S7 is obviously the way to go. In my case, though, I wanted the larger 3,600mAh battery that came in the Edge variant, which made it worth it to me.

High quality materials packed with some of the best specs

from The Gadgeteer

I think Samsung’s latest phone is currently their greatest phone as far as looks and features. Samsung is the current leader in high-end smartphones and I am looking forward to what their new Note devices will offer us.

A superb smartphone with excellent battery life

I still think the S7 is the better buy.

I still think the S7 is the better buy. While there's no denying the S7 Edge is a great smartphone, the normal S7 is a more convenient size, it's just as powerful and its battery life is still pretty incredible. If you want the best-looking smartphone money can buy, then by all means go for the S7 Edge, but those after a more practical proposition should stick with its flat sibling.

A tremendous phone, but a few fatal flaws keep it from greatness

from Android Guys

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a top notch phone let down by some fatal flaws. The things that Samsung did well, they did better than anyone else. But, issues with the software and performance keep me from recommending this as a must-buy.
