Dang, Samsung starting the year with a huge bang. I'm curious how will the others will do to keep up if the S7 will be as awesome as the rumours said it will be.

How's that? They started the year off with delayed M updates for last years flagships...

Of course, updates are EVERYTHING. /s

To think, battery life took a huge dump in 2015. Despite what some say, it was largely thanks to the A57 and its relative inefficiency, as well as Qualcomm's inexperience with big.LITTLE setup. I'm glad things are turning around. Let's see what all the big players have to offer

People are fighting over silly wallpapers, but no comments on battery mAh. Yea, a totally mature crowd.

S7 Edge can be phone of my dreams. I just hope that here will be USB C 3.1 and waterproofing the same as S5 (IP67?) or even better as last Sony devices (IP68?).

They not going to use USB type c due to there is no support on the sd 820 for 3.1 and without it , there is nothing good about it, there is loads of problems with leads, many many many problems for the basic customer, just not going to happen

I can life without it. Waterproofing is more important for me.

I can definitely tell that these devices are not gonna have type c port. Its just not worth it. Plus I can totally live without it.

"The device in this picture looks plasticy but isn't at all in person, though this is most definitely a picture of the device. I've seen both the edge and normal extensively and these pictures don't don't really do it justice.
It's certainly thicker than the S6 in the flesh but doesn't feel it with the curved back.
Whoever posted this picture probably just got someone fired, likely not themselves. That being said, everything they posted about the device is correct. IP certification, magnesium metal I think, 12 mp f1.7 camera, type B? (not C) USB"

Thats great! Sounds like a solid upgrade! And I'm glad that they are still using the micro USB instead of type c!

Anyone remember S6 Active and how badass the battery life was? Same battery size, probably amore efficient display panel and SoC = AWESOMENESS!

This actually have increased 100mah and yea with more efficient display and soc than 7420 its going to last really long

Looks like Samsung got everything right for the GS7. Looking forward to the announcement!

that's some good marketing samsung....you finally started to listen your costumers and doing the upgrades...you're calling people to buy your phone,...even as a fan of HTC I have to admit you're giving me hard time to pick HTC over you..
17. LionStone (Posts: 743; Member since: 10 Dec 2010)
It's never a hard decision picking an HTC device over sammy. They have a long way to go before I pick them over HTC...software, UI, physical/capacitative buttons, lack of updates...Typically sammy needs to put bigger batteries to make up for the software. I'd rather just go with a clean, near stock UI and still get good battery life, plus we have fast charging now, so convenient.

Wasn't there some sort of new usb cell phone cable that could be inserted either way but kept the same micro usb attributes? What if the s7 uses that, you could still use your cables you have now and still get the type c or lightening cable capabilities of not having to worry about which side is facing up when inserting. Also if the battery is this big now the note 6 should have a 4000mAh juicer!
