T-Mobile starts shipping pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

T-Mobile starts shipping pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
It's one thing to have your Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge pre-order entered into your carrier's computer system. It's a completely different and more exciting feeling when that carrier starts shipping out pre-orders. Several T-Mobile customers have received a notification from the mobile operator, stating that their pre-ordered Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge handset has already been shipped.

Both devices were originally scheduled to start arriving on March 11th. But as it turns out, there will be some lucky T-Mobile customers rockin' the latest and greatest from Samsung earlier than they could have dreamed. Samsung listened to feedback from users and added back the dust and waterproofing feature that was on the Samsung Galaxy S5. Besides the IP68 certification, Samsung has returned the microSD slot that disappeared on last year's model.

If you received a notification about the shipping of your new Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, now comes the fun part where every knock on the door elicits screams of joy. And the return commute from the office becomes exciting as you look forward to holding the new device in your hand. Of course, there could be a let down when you realize that the package on your doorstep is only the  new Time-Life CD collection you've ordered ("Great Boy Bands of the '80s"). But once the let down feeling dissipates, the excitement builds all over again as you look forward to the next day.

Yep! Got my confirmation this morning. Checked the cc statement and there's definitely a $800 charge on there... I got upgraded to free next day shipping so it should be here by tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest!

I also got the tracking number today for the same configuration. Can't wait to see it in person. Upgrading from a Nexus 6P.

Preorder from Verizon is the best choice as you can get a Gear S2 free.

Can't lie...That deal does sound really good.

It's a nice offer, but you end up paying for more than the cost of the s2 when you compare VZ monthly service cost to other carriers over the course of a year. Then you'd have to ask yourself are they giving you the standalone version of the s2 or the version that's dependent on being connect to your smartphone. Even if it's the standalone version, that works to VZ advantage because they are going to talk you into adding a separate line for the watch, which means more dollars for them.

T-Mobile preorder gives you free VR, 1yr Netflix and some VR games.

Why Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge even with Snapdragon 820 it will only support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 not 3.0 and LG G5 with Snapdragon 820 will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, is it because Exynos processor can not support Quick Charge 3.0 so Samsung removed the support from Snapdragon 820 variant. Galaxy S7 and S7 edgehttps://www.qualcomm.com/news/snapdragon/2016/02/21/samsung-unveils-galaxy-s7-and-s7-edge-powered-snapdragon-820 LG G5https://www.qualcomm.com/news/snapdragon/2016/02/21/snapdragon-820-powers-new-lg-g5 I haven't read an article explains what is the reason for that, anyone know what is the real reason.

Samsung uses its own fast charging system

It's not Samsung's own charging system, it is based on Qualcomm's system only.

Exynos doesn't support Qualcomm's quick charge at all.

And it charges superfast!

Sounds like a first world problem to me. What's the real difference in the two? They both charge really fast... Is that really going to be a deal breaker... This phone doesn't have quick charge 3.0 I can't buy it now.

16. g2a5b0e unregistered

My thoughts exactly. The difference between the 2 is about 15 minutes. Half the time, my Note 5 is already fully charged before I fall asleep. I don't care if it goes any faster. +1

Right! Even if I use the non Samsung fast charger my phone still charges pretty fast... I only really use the fast charger if I'm in between work and heading out for the night and I want to make sure I have enough juice for the night.

Come on now... can't really use the old "first world problem" thing on a tech site ;) All problems would be first world problems on this site ;)

Even Qualcoom-Note4 didn't use any QC technology. The technology they used earlier was by Qnovo. Not sure what they use currently, but it should be something similar. Whether they use 3.0/2.0 or whatever, at the end it matters how fast it can charge.

You should definitely check it out in person first. People have reported that it's essentially chrome...and it's WAY more reflective than they thought. Just a friendly fyi :)

Wow. Won't get this with any other phone. Get your pre-order 2 weeks before it's actually suppose to be officially released is awesome. Amazing what you can do with $200B in cash! Oh wait!!! Enjoy your S. Wow. I wished someone in my family needed a phone, just so I could play with it.

My S7 edge will be delivered tomorrow. T-Mobile rocks when it comes to pre-orders. Nearly 2 weeks early. Ohhhhh yes! New phone geek out freak out starts tomorrow :)
