  • The Galaxy S7 edge is slightly larger than the Galaxy S7 and even more popular with its curved screen.
  • Except for the screen diagonal and the curved display edge, the devices do not differ.
  • Internally, the currently fastest Samsung processor Eynos 8890 clocks with eight cores.
  • The camera has also been renewed: fewer megapixels, but more incidence of light, which can result in better images. Because megapixels are not everything.

  • Samsung Galaxy S7 edge test: overstretched display arch?
