The Galaxy S7 Edge for 2016 has a bigger screen, a huge battery that recharges even faster than last years already fast recharge times, Fast Wireless charging, and an all-new camera.

Going from 16 megapixels to 12 megapixels sounds bad, but the new Galaxy S7 Edge camera is very promising. It uses a DSLR-type "Dual Pixel" technology with a huge sensor to capture up to 95% more light than older phones like the Galaxy S6 Edge. It also uses all 12 million of those pixels to auto-focus, while most phones only use 5% of the pixels to focus.

This, along with optical image stabilization means the camera takes amazing photos, especially in low light or indoors, focuses amazingly fast, and takes crisp and beautiful photos or video. Samsung's talking up this camera a lot, and it could be the best camera in all of 2016.

Everything has been improved. It's powered by a faster and more efficient 8-core processor and now has 4GB of RAM, the micro-SD slot is back, the battery is way bigger, and bigger than even the Galaxy Note 5 which has a bigger screen.

The Galaxy S7 Edge looks to be Samsung's best smartphone yet.

    “Samsung Expects Galaxy S7 to Sell Much Better than Galaxy S6” Keep dreaming. I bet most will come from those people who have an GS4 or GS5. We know Samsung can mass produce phone when it wants, but has it shown the public that it can keep up with the OS (and it’s own bloatware) running them?
