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.

Fanboism aside, do you really think so?

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, 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

No, this time you are wrong. It looks like a screen wrapped with a beer can.

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

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)

Typical Samsung hater. Can't accept 'losses', takes things personal, can't accept the truth lol. Pathetic. It's just a company mate.. .that makes a superb phone. Get a life.

Seriously. I don't mind it if they like their little crap caulk line iphones. But don't say it's better cause it's snot.

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)

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.
