Not good choice for day to day usage
Phone owned for more than a year

I purchased this phone in Dec 2018, and I'm now looking for a new one. That's around 2.5 years of usage. Here's my feedback on the phone:

[-] 1. Battery drainage is very high. I find myself in need to recharge the phone 2-3 times a day. It's even worse when you're using Google Maps for around 30-45 minutes. You can easily lose are 40% of the battery in this single usage :')
[-] 2. The phone heats on usages like apps updates and google maps.
[-] 3. The phone's responsiveness is VERY BAD. Around 40% of the time, you might wait for a few seconds after every tap! You might even have to forcefully kill the running app or might wanna restart the phone, if it doesn't restart on its own!
[+] 4. The body and build is good. It fell off many times and is still standing strong. The screen hasn't got any scratches.

Typical Samsung
Phone owned for more than a year

Typical Samsung bloatware and planned obsolescence. I bought this phone after my Note 7 was recalled. I had soured on Samsung after my issues, and friend's/family's issues with their previous Samsung devices, but I loved the Note 7 and was hoping the S7 Edge would be the same phone in a different body... It's a very different device. Some good, some bad, but longevity did this phone in for me. Last Samsung I will probably ever buy.

For my 2nd phone and 1st premium smartphone (after 9 months) it's awesome!
Phone owned for less than a month

On March.18,2017, my dad bought me my first ever phone, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) V. It was an amazing and even better with Nougat. My S7 Edge is great, I got it on Christmas on 2017 and overall, it's not too big and is sleek and slim. My only concerns is the glass feels slippery when hot (I have a case) and I am now back to Touchwiz (my J3 started with Marshmallow and Touchwiz and went to Android 7.1.1 with Samsung Experience 8.5 while my S7 Edge currently has Android 7.0 with Touchwiz Grace UX) for now till Android 8.0 Oreo. Regardless, this phone is awesome and I absolutely recommended this phone!
