As the sales of its flagship S line are going downwards, since the launch of Galaxy S4, Samsung has now opted to change the specifications available with its Galaxy S6 phone. Samsung has redesigned this smartphone from the grounds and has finally delivered a phone which it can feel proud of even in front of fashion conscious buyers.
As we know, the sales for the previous year flagship Galaxy S6 were not that good so the Korean giant is keeping its eyes on this newly launched phone to improve its market share. This handset is now available for sale in many regions in Europe such as UK and Germany.
If you were keeping your eyes on the unveiling of the new Galaxy S7 phone then you should know that it’s offering what exactly you were looking for. In other words, the Korean giant has tried to keep it up to its promise which this newly released smartphone. It will get a metal frame encircling the phone and is sporting Corning Gorilla glass providing protection against any kind of scratches.
The new Galaxy S7 phone adopts the back curvature of the Galaxy Note 5 phone which makes it quite comfortable to hold. It gets 7.9 mm thickness and comes with 138 grams weight. Increase in thickness is not random, and the S7 is now certified by IP68 which makes it dust and water resistant. This is a feature which was dumped previously by the Galaxy S5 handset. In addition, Samsung has also managed to fit a large sized battery to this phone.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 was sporting a 5.1 inch display, with 600 pixels resolution. Samsung has kept the things almost same with the Galaxy S7 phone by packing it with a 5.1 inch Quad HD display with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution. While examining these two devices within their color correct basic mode, we notice that the balance between their primary colors i.e. red, green and blue has now changed while in Galaxy S6 we were enjoying green in excess.
Now, we see blue dominating and red continuing to be underrepresented. As a result, the color temperature has now gone to the colder 6850K versus the essentially perfect 6580K of S6 handset. This phone has also suffered in the maximum brightness and is now sitting at 500 nits, in comparison to the 560 nits that were available with the S6 handset. However, the screen of the S7 phone continues to be a leading one and offers slightly superior color accuracy and grayscale response that the predecessor.
Gamma, on this handset has also taken a hit for the worse, with a poorer average overall but off the mark value across the brightness spectrum. A new feature is added namely Always on Display, which means that the screen on Samsung’s S7 phone will always show something on it and will never die. There are already a number of themes available for it and a third party developer has shown the access as promised.
