Which of these Galaxy S7/S7 edge software features are you most interested in?
With the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, it's hard to get past the fact that Samsung has spent most of its efforts on improving the hardware of its new devices. While somewhat subtle on the outside, the reality is that the new phones offer a more ergonomic design that is also water- and dust-resistant, larger batteries, newer and meaner processors, more RAM, a completely new camera, and the list goes on and on. And as for the software? You'll have to look a little harder to find something new.

But new features, there are. For example, the new devices offer a dedicated Game Launcher app, which serves as the home for all your gaming apps. Through it, a floating icon will follow wherever your adventures take you, allowing you quick access to blocking notifications, turning off the Back and Recents keys to avoid accidental presses, record game footage, and even lower the frame rate to save battery, or the resolution to better performance. 

Also new are Hyperlapse and Motion panorama, the first of which allows you to basically speed through very long recordings, but with the added benefit of proper software stabilization, while the latter makes panoramas come to life through video (think of it as video panorama). And for users outside of the United States, a brand-new Galaxy Labs menu will unlock experimental features, such as Quick Call (long-press the Home button and speak out a contact's name) and Bye-Bye-App-drawer (kills the app drawer, duh). And for 'edge' aficionados, a new, far more comprehensive Edge UI has been made available. And of course, we can't forget about Always On Display.

Which one of these do you deem most interesting?
