Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge pre-orders top expectations

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge pre-orders top expectations
According to Koh Dong-jin, the president of Samsung's handset business, pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge are ahead of expectations. The two high-end models officially launch in multiple countries tomorrow, although some consumers have already received their pre-orders.

The Samsung executive said that the new handsets will help Samsung get back on track in China, a country where analysts say that Samsung has fallen behind other smartphone manufacturers. Talk of stronger than expected pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, in conjunction with a report published earlier this week from Business Korea, would seem to indicate that Samsung had set the bar low for pre-orders of this year's handsets. The report published earlier this week said that pre-orders in South Korea for both models were trailing the number of reservations that Samsung had received in previous years for its high-end phones.

In China, analysts believe that during its first year on the market, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will not surpass the sales rung up last year by the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. The analysts attribute the weakness to the lack of innovative features on the new models. Still, Samsung did listen to customer feedback and brought back the IP certified water resistance and the microSD slot on its newest smartphones.

I am confused between G5 and S7. S7 has better camera and G5 has removable battery.

The G5 hadn't been released yet, so which device has the better camera can't fairly be determined. That said, I'm sure the camera(s) on the G5 will still be able to hold its own.

There were already some samples at mwc and by looks of it it does not surpass s7 by its camera quality. Having said that LG 5 has decent cam anyway.

the only thing I didn't like about s7 is you have to pick dual sim or micro SD.

Do ya'll always have to mention that yall getting the G5 on every S7 article or vise versa? I dont understand ya'll's logic. With that being said, cant you just buy the phone you want without announcing it? I mean its your money. No one will stop you. I'm just saying

Not surprising cause of the aggressive pre-order deals. Here in Hong Kong we get 16% off the GS7 and GS7 Edge (including an official Samsung case and wireless charger through some retailers) and the US gets a free VR headset.

It's too much to compare Korean sales to a Global preorders PA
