phone at all. And that's just to name a few.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
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.
Here's the full split:

It's really the overall package that makes S7 more desirable than the competition. Go for Sony X Performance if you prefer stereo front speakers over AMOLED screen, but at least they can compete on somewhat equal footing in the SoC aspect this year, last year's 7420 wasn't really that exceptional, but it's just that 810 really messed up.

The S7 is nice and all but the S6 is still a beast there is no reason for me to upgrade so soon plus it feels a bit more premium exnos 7420 with DDR3 is enough for everyday use SD820 is nice but not everyone cares about benchmarks it's about usability and value

Sony makes a waterproof high end phone with a glass back cover, everyone goes meh. Samsung copy Sony and makes a waterproof high end phone with a glass back cover, everyone goes WOW! I bet when Samsung will make a phone with a 4K display no one will find it pointless or overkill...

spending upward $800 dollars for a samsung phone that is not even released with BOGO's already spreading like wildfire for waterproof and a new camera is not reason for samsung to even to even release a S7. sd back on--released on previous versions...waterproofing back on--released on previous versions and camera bump --nothing new for the next big thing for $800 dollars and 15 gigs of available space give or take out of 32 gig phone!!!!!
