    The camera on the Galaxy S7 is something of an experiment. Samsung cut back on the resolution, dropping from 16MP on the S6 to 12MP. This effort was made to improve low light sensitivity. At the same time, this camera sensor adopts the Dual Pixel focusing technology found on DSLR cameras in an attempt to speed up focus acquisition. Are these moves just marketing hype, or can we see actual benefits for consumers? Are there any compromises made by lowering the resolution? What the heck is a 4:3 aspect ratio? We're going to cover all of that! We live in a time where the only camera someone ...

    You know how Samsung sometimes resorts to questionable humor and low blows in its generally entertaining anti-Apple publicity stunts, while Cupertino always takes the high road and never responds to its arch-rival’s ironies? Until a few days ago, we thought Verizon was seeking to employ a similarly diplomatic and defensive advertising strategy, outright ignoring Sprint and T-Mobile’s increasingly derogatory campaigns. But busting Big Red’s balls must have awakened the sleeping giant, which went on the counter-offensive on Friday with a pair of 30-second commercials starring none ...

    Samsung’s website claims that one of the reasons to buy a Galaxy S7 edge is because hey - It’s a Galaxy. Because your phone should give you the freedom to do more. And it’s the least that it should do given the pretty penny you’re investing for one. But does it finally live up to all that marketing hype? Not sure if you've noticed, but every time that we've reviewed a Galaxy flagship, there was always something missing. The Galaxy S5 had expandable everything, but we hated it's cheap plastic. The Galaxy S6 brought amazing build quality, but then expandability took a back seat. ...

    You can always count on a new Galaxy phone to generate a lot of discussion. Samsung is refining its wares this year, bringing back several of the lifestyle features missing from the Galaxy S6. Water resistance, a larger battery, and Micro SD card storage expansion all return. When paired with the stunningly attractive metal and glass build materials, it results in a formidable competitor.

    As phablets continue to reign supreme, Samsung has proven that it can blur the lines between the category with the Samsung Galaxy S7. The company may have not explicitly called the Galaxy S7 edge a phablet, but if you follow the terms on Wikipedia, any smartphone with a screen sized above 5.1-inches in diagonal can be safely included in this category. Keep in mind thought that this is a category that’s already well dominated by some of our favorite devices of 2015, being the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 edge+. If you recently decided to pull the trigger on either one of these, ...

    Matching the words AT&T with unboxing has historically never been good, but it seems that somebody finally got the memo. For years the whole concept of an unboxing experience has been ignored by AT&T, and for reasons I've never understood. That first impression of any expensive product is everything, and we're glad to see things continue to change for a device this important. The new Samsung Galaxy S7 is probably one of the most anticipated phones of the year, and this time it's not just marketing hype. Watch our full unboxing video as we go through our initial experience.
