S7 v S7 Edge

Clearly the biggest difference between the Galaxy S7 models is the curved screen. In addition to this, there are also a few additional differences. The Samsung S7 Edge is actually a little bit bigger than the standard S7 being slightly taller (150.9mm v 142.4) and wider (72.6mm v 69.6mm). Despite the increased dimensions on plan, the Edge is a little thinner than the standard handset (7.7mm v 7.9mm). The edge is also a little heavier, although at mere 5g more it is hardly likely to be noticeable.

The battery in the Edge is also of a higher capacity, being 3600mAh as compared to the 3000mAh in the standard unit. Both feature wireless charging.

Power and performance in one

The latest 64-bit microchip processor technology enables the Samsung Galaxy S7 to pack a punch way above its competitors. Whether you’re powering through work task or simply enjoying the latest games or QHD films on the move, it will keep up with your every step.

Beautiful quality design
