Error should have been 16 MP PA........ the S7 drops to a 12MP camera (down from 12MP on the S6)

Where is the USB Type-C? Where is Force Touch? Where is the 1/2" sensor?? Samsung also reduced the pixel size from 1.12 μm to 1 μm ... WTF Samsung!!!

For the T-Mobile customers, can you pre-order phones to get with Jump On Demand? And if you can, you think that we would be qualified to get the free VR headset?
