While the Galaxy Note 7 is the new phone on the block from Samsung, there is nothing wrong with the specs, quality or performance on offer with the Galaxy S7 series. These are still 2016 Samsung flagship models and while the standard Galaxy S range typically comes with a smaller form factor than the Galaxy Note range, Samsung has bridged that size gap somewhat with the introduction of their 'Edge' models. As such, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a great option for those looking for a typical Galaxy S experience but with a larger (5.5-inch) display. The rest of the specs are generally quite in line with the Galaxy Note 7, as this is a smartphone which comes packing 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a Samsung Exynos 8890 processor, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,600 mAh battery and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box.
The best thing about the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is that with the Note 7 now preparing to become widely available, the Galaxy S7 range is starting to see some fairly good price drops. For instance, right now you can pick up the Galaxy S7 Edge from eBay for only $569.99. This is an unlocked model and does come with support for any of the GSM-based networks in the US, including AT&T and T-Mobile. Not to mention, you also do have the choice of color, with black, silver and gold models all currently available at the $569.99 price.
