Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Batman Injustice Edition unboxing and first look


Batman fans, here is something special for you: the brand new Samsung Galaxy S7 Injustice Edition has just landed in our office and it is a thing of style and beauty.

Transformed to fit the black theme that is associated with the superhero that oversees Gotham City, this Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice Edition comes in a big black box and itself has an evolved design.

With an all-black body and gold accents, including a prominent Batman logo on the back, this phone also lacks the typical Samsung logo on the back. Instead, the Samsung brand name is written up front, right below the earpiece. The metal frame that is silver on the regular Galaxy S7 Edge, here is a black affair as well, contributing to the mood and feel of this device. The gold finish on the home key, the camera and the earpiece is also something that makes the phone appear very exquisite.

What else is in the box? Samsung is giving away a free VR - as it does with other Galaxy S7 phones - but this time around it's a Black virtual reality headset. You can't imagine Batman wearing a white VR headset, can you? Unfortunately, the charger, microUSB cable and the included set of earbuds are all white and that seems a bit off given the otherwise all black theme here.

Firing up and setting up the phone is the standard process, but once you're done a Batman theme is automatically applied. It comes with a big and good-looking Batman wallpaper, as well as icons redesigned to all serve the theme of your favorite superhero. Most customizations here are a bit over-the-top and we prefer a more stock feel (even for a Batman phone), but luckily you can easily disable the theme and switch to TouchWiz or some other custom theme in the Samsung App Store.

Finally, the Batman sign collectible, a shuriken-like toy is also included to give you some extra street cred. We don't know what would be its practical purpose, but the cool factor for it definitely is high.

Would look nice without the Batman logo on the back... Also a bit naff that you can see a rectangular box around that logo in the print (around 2:48), not sure what process they used but that looks cheap.

As col as this looks, your gripe is the sticker? For something you're gonna slap the case on? Oh wait. You aren't even buying it, why do you even care?! Its ok to have an opinion, but you picked out the sticker? Other than the logos, its looks no different than any other S7 Edge. The sticker simply reflected off the glare of the light. Otherwise you wont even see it.

For someone who obsesses over Apple's "rip off" pricing I'd have thought that an overpriced S7 for the sake of what is basically a colour option wouldn't be your thing, obviously depends on the brand... But yes, a cheap looking sticker does bother me on a premium product. Why even buy this version if you're going to put it in a case and cover it up? Just buy a standard S7, which is a perfectly decent phone - unlike you I can be objective.

Its all about the cost of making the device... Your iToy( 6s plus) costs around 230$ to manufacture and sold for more than 900$. The s7 edge cost about 300$ to manufacture and sold at around 680$....DUMB iSheep..

So how much extra are you paying for a gold Batman logo on this particular S7 Edge over the regular version? It must be a very expensive logo... Some great and original insults there, actually no, they're the same as all people like you use - how very "sheeplike" of you.

The difference is that iphone is worth the price. It works smooth unlike your lagwiz lagdroid.

I think people always forget you're paying for iOS as well, an operating system made specifically for your device by the manufacturer (and therefore must be factored into the cost price) rather than an off-the-shelf OS from Google with an overlay. I'm not saying Apple are the best at everything, that they're perfect, that they're not expensive - I never do, despite what the rabid fandroids waffle on about... Most are so delusional on here though they think what they come up with in their mind is fact.

"Most are so delusional on here though they think what they come up with in their mind is fact." This also applies to iTrolls of this site. Don't you forget that. Want one example? That iTroll right above you (Bobbybaster or Bobbybuster or whatever you want to cal it.). Don't act like only android fans do this.

Oh I know it happens from both sides, I can only speak as an iPhone user who gets accused of being many things just for my choice of device though. I think so many hate so hard here though that they don't realise you can like and own many different devices...

Touchwiz isnt as laggy as it used to be. The iPhone is worth the price....until the new one comes out with a faster processor and the old one starts to lag. Before you spew your ignorance, I went from a 6+ to an S7. I've had every iPhone from the 3G to the 6+ and they do lag after a bit. For what iPhones do, they are worth the price to an extent, they are lacking in features and Apple themselves are realizing that with the help of their stock.

On a PC you just click on your avatar pic and then "edit photo" and upload... Haven't checked on the phone...

He said pretty much word-for-word what Papa_Ji said above about the iPhone, are you going to tell him the same?

And the Apple Watch isn't ? What about the countless useless devices that the Apple store sells at a premium because its "designed for iPhone" so it must be better. Stop being a troll.

The hypocrisy on this site is too savage lmao! You've got guys slinging insults because people don't want to pay for a reskin (which probably won't hold much value being a depreciating product) and they are correct in my eyes. This thing isn't worth 1200 USD if you're being honest with yourself :D
