Are the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge the "most beautiful smartphones on the planet"? (poll results)

Are the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge the
Already available to pre-order in many markets around the world, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are Samsung's latest and greatest high-end Android smartphones, succeeding last year's Galaxy S6 series, and coming with a significant number of important new features and enhancements, in addition to an upgraded (yet not too dissimilar) design.

Last week, while announcing the two handsets, DJ Koh, President of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business, presented the S7 and S7 edge as the "most beautiful smartphones on the planet." Needless to say, it's not unusual, nor unexpected for companies to tout their products as the best and the most attractive on the market. But we were curious to know what our readers thought about DJ Koh's statement, so we published a poll to ask: are the new Samsung Galaxy handsets the most beautiful out there?

The final poll results are now in, and we can see that almost half of those who voted (49.2%) agreed with the statement, believing that the S7 and S7 edge are, indeed, the most beautiful smartphones on Earth. On the other hand, 50.8% of voters don't think that the new Galaxies are that beautiful. Are you surprised by these results? Intrigued? Couldn't care less?

If you didn't get the chance to vote in our poll while it was active, you can share your thoughts on the Galaxy S7 series in the comments section. Also, watch Samsung's Galaxy S7 event in the video below (skip to 33:02 for DJ Koh's statement), and make sure to check out our Galaxy S7 hands on, and our Galaxy S7 edge hands-on.

If you saw either of these in person you'd quickly change your mind. It's a next level of beautiful.

Looks and probably feels like a bar of soap. Doesn't look beautiful at all.

There's no fanboyism in my comment, but I do think so.

Actually, they look amazing. Most beautiful? Maybe not. Much better than phones with caulk lines.

i am really not a Samsung fan, but i do not see anything looking better then EDGE.
i would not go on story of it's back look, because we are looking front panel all the time anyway...or talk about build quality (but here, samsung is if not on top, at least close to it)...just about how phone looks.

but then, it's not look that will sell me a smartphone, even though i do understand many people do buy phone for it's look.
S6 was looking the same, but i did not even think for a moment to buy it, because there was no SD card, wather ressistance i had weak battery....now, S6 does have it all, but still EDGE version is too big for me.
i need smartphone sized at top of 5', so there is only one option for me right now and that is XperiaX Performance, which i would call borring if not even UGLY.

so, look is not everything, but if only Samsung would produce smaller EDGE, i would buy it before Xperia.
but, it's just me...

Mate the edge is very small in the hand, go and test it out, even that small tech girl of YouTube like it, unlike last year

this poll is useless...
its just like samsung fans vs LG, BB, sony, nokia, apple, and other brand fans combined

lets do another poll about what is the most beautifull smartphone on planet..
LG G5 vs i6s vs S7 vs Z5p vs other flagship andsee who is the winner, lol

The S7 would easily win if that's the competition. Some extremely niche phones look better, such as the Turing phone, Sharp's Aquos Crystal variants (those near-bezeless phones), a few of Vertu's phones, but those really aren't practical choices for the average reader here

92. zacsaturday (Posts: 199; Member since: 09 May 2014)


Actually, i wouldn't say the Sharp Aquos phones are beautiful, the chin bezel in top looks ugly. Also, the phone does not look usable. (your hand would keep tapping the edge of the screen)

Already tested it in actual this morning, both devie are great looking. s7 feels like the s6 less sharp edges. Funny because when I held s7 edge I thought I was holding a compact 4.6 inch product until I realize the height in my pocket. Silver is the best color for me, gonna get one after full reviews have been made.

Really that's why you would not buy it? Lol. I have 20 remotes laying around and programable ones. Very few phones have it. I have an s6 and never use the feature. So I pre-ordered the s7 yest. Verizon is offering a free smart watch or vr headset for preordering. Think I am going with the watch

HTC One A9 looks even better than S7, A9 looks sexier. Yes yes you all can say its iPhone clone, but iPhone is not sexy at all in looks. I had A9 for a week and I really loved its design and AMOLED display.. makes me more excited for M10(if they also used AMOLED display than)

125. Hypergy (Posts: 54; Member since: 24 Feb 2016)


Even iPhone users in their blogs are saying the S7 is the most beautiful phone. What looks better? You can't name one because there isn't one.

I'm not sure that has much to do with whether or not it's aesthetically pleasing. That just makes it impractical, depending on your POV.

Not a Samsung fan myself, but the S7 edge won me over. Pre-Ordered it in black with a Spigen rugged armor case. Last 2 phones were LG but wasn't sold on the G5. Can't wait for March 11

I asked him like that because he is well-known for being one of the biggest Apple fanboys here. And for him to say S6 Edge + is the most beautiful smartphone really raises my eyebrows.

Only severe fanboys who obsess so much over inanimate objects and have genuine hate for inanimate objects and hate for those people who may like these inanimate objects like you, get confused and furiated and are not thinking of objective reality , it is your heavily fanboy induced sense of reality that thinks this. Dark has stated many times he owns different products from different brands and he is able to enjoy the devices he has that come from multiple different companies.

PA when will this Taters like clone be banned? Hopefully soon

Amen to that whole post my dude. Why can't I be a guy, who simply works hard, buys what he likes, and has no true brand loyalty? Now when it comes to my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers, Bronx Bombers, and Michigan Wolverines...I'm a huge fanboy lol. When it comes to tech, I'm not.

I can roll with Apple, Samsung, HTC, or whoever makes a device that I like. Idiots like SRK, who's actually Arte8800 will never know the joy, cause they'll only use one product.

Hey SRK, I also use more than one brand of toilet paper too. Is that ok with you?

Hope all is well miket. Good lookin out as usual.

Please explain how I'm one of the biggest Apple fan boys, and explain intelligently please. I've praised and criticized Apple Google Samsung, and a host of other companies.
