Galaxy S7 Obliterates The Competition In A Battery Test Involving Several Flagship Handsets
What happens when a Galaxy S7 is taken for a flagship battery test against the remainder of the Android flagship crew? You get one heck of a competition that’s for sure.
Galaxy S7 Manages To Outperform The Competition Despite Its 3,000mAh Battery Capacity – Video Test Provides The Evidence
If you take a look a video given below, it’s quite impossible to believe that Galaxy S7 can zip past the competition with just its 3,000mAh battery. However, the improved UI coupled with an efficient SoC shows that Samsung has come a very long way in improving the performance, battery and the overall experience for the user.
Another thing we would like to add is that Samsung Galaxy S7’s biggest improvements not only comes from the battery capacity increase, but its 12.3MP rear camera as well. Though the number of megapixels are less compared to the 16MP rear camera on Galaxy S6, less number of megapixels are actually advantageous to have on a smartphone because they allow more light to enter per pixel, thus making low-light images and videos feature a higher quality than those camera sensors that boast larger megapixels. Samsung has also managed to incorporate an F/1.7 aperture on its flagship smartphone duo, and for your knowledge, this aperture rating is the widest on any smartphone right now.
Naturally, smartphone cameras with wider apertures are expected in the near future, but Galaxy S7 and S7 edge currently hold the crown for this particular category. The smartphone’s internals comprise of the company’s own developed Exynos 8890 SoC, and the device also brings back the MicroSD card slot, allowing you to have tons of storage in the palm of your hands. The maximum storage capacity of the smartphone is 200GB, so it is highly unlikely that you will be running out of storage anytime soon.
Furthermore, Samsung has incorporated a 3,600mAh battery in its Galaxy S7 edge, so if you wanted to experience even better battery life while viewing content on a larger screen size, and take advantage of the curved edge screen as well, the ‘edge’ variant will suit your purpose quite nicely. The tech giant has also managed to release a more rugged and durable version of its 5.1-inch flagship offering and has named it the Galaxy S7 Active. While it is thicker than a regular Galaxy S7, its main perk is the massive 4,000mAh cell present inside its housing, along with the same MicroSD card slot that allows you to expand your storage by 200GB.
