Samsung’s 2015 lineup of Galaxy flagships brought some major changes, including a revamped physical design and greatly improved software. But while they fixed some long-standing issues, all four Galaxy flagships from last year took away some major features, mainly expandable storage and removable batteries. In case of the latter, Samsung added insult to injury by putting in considerably smaller batteries on these devices compared to their predecessors, though the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ managed to offer impressive endurance despite the lower battery capacity.
Our favorite smartphone manufacturer no doubt learned its lesson though – either because sales were affected or the company simply needed time to get things together as it moved from plastic to glass for its phones – and the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are expected to bring the Galaxy lineup back to its former glory. Back to the days when the hardware was packed to the brim with every important feature, but this time with faster, smoother and cleaner software running the show (software that might be faster than even iOS). A microSD slot, large batteries (still not removable), and even water-resistance will be a part of the Galaxy S lineup once again if all the rumors pan out. Samsung will also be offering two screen sizes at the same time, and there’s a chance we might see new features like a retina scanner and possibly a pressure-sensitive screen.
We guess we already know the winner for today’s poll, but here’s our question to you SamMobile readers: What Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge feature are you looking forward to the most? Is it the return of the microSD slot the reason you’ll buy either of the two flagships, or do you think that water-resistance is what will make the two devices stand out? Let us know by voting in the poll bow, and do leave a comment with your thoughts!
