General
When Samsung introduced the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, everyone lauded the beautiful design and overall functionality of the new phones, but there were a few things lacking. Now with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S7 things have changed.    In an effort to cement their place as king of Android, Samsung sacrificed things such as expandable and waterproofing in lieu of beautiful design. With the S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung decided to follow the old adage “if it ain’t broke…” and kept the design of the 2016 flagship devices similar to those of its predecessors. What makes the new phones special?   Samsung not only stuck with a winning design (retaining a glass front and back), they also gave us what we missed in the S6 and S6 Edge.   The S7 and S7 Edge come with a blazingly fast processor, waterproofing, expandable storage and what is arguably the best smartphone camera on the market.  

Here is the breakdown of both the Samsung Galaxy S7 models:
