The new camera and waterproofing are the leading reasons 'for' among potential Galaxy S7 buyers

The new camera and waterproofing are the leading reasons 'for' among potential Galaxy S7 buyers
If you are in the market for a new, high-end smartphone, it'd be hard to gloss over Samsung's Galaxy S7. Having just hit the streets, Samsung's flagship is certainly one hot commodity. In many ways, it's a better, meaner Galaxy S6. We ought to know, seeing as we've been spending a lot of quality one-on-one with it.

There are quite a few things to like about the S7. It's got a more ergonomic curvature at the back, it's dust- and water-resistant, it accepts microSD cards, and it features an entirely new camera. There's also a larger battery on board, a better processor, and a new Always On display feature for keeping track of the time and incoming notifications without having to wake up the phone at all. And that's just to name a few.

But if you were to buy the Galaxy S7, what would your number one reason be? That's what we asked you yesterday, and as you gleaned from the tittle, most of our participants are excited about the new camera (23%) and the waterproofing bit (22%). Despite Samsung touting the Always On feature of the S7 as much as possible, very few participants consider it a big enough extra to drop several hundred bucks.
