Galaxy S7 Brings Back Storage

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Android, Hardware & Peripherals, Smartphones

When Samsung took away the microSD slot and removable battery on the Galaxy S6, a log of users cried foul. Expandable storage and a removable battery were the features that made Samsung’s Galaxy phones stand out from the iPhone.


Samsung listened to their customers, because removable storage is back in a big way in the new Galaxy S7.  Users can add up to a 200 GB microSD card to this model.


However, Samsung did not bring back the removable battery. The company did increase the size of the battery to 3000mAh, giving about 20% more battery life than the GS6. The phone is also capable of wireless charging.


One of neatest features of this phone is that it is water-resistant. So spills or even an accidental quick dunk in the sink shouldn’t destroy your phone. Still, I wouldn’t take your new phone deep-sea diving.

The camera goes back to 12 mega-pixels from the 16 offered in the GS5, but adds an improved sensor for low-light photos and a faster-autofocus.


There’s also a new “always on” mode that displays notifications and calendar events on your lock screen. But don’t worry about it eating up your battery power. It only consumes about 1% of the power.


If you’re not a fan of being always on, there’s also a do-not-disturb mode to block notifications.

Samsung also aims to please die-hard mobile gamers with features like Game Hub

The phone comes in two models, The Galaxy S7 with a 5.1″ display and the Galaxy S7 Edge that features a 5.5″ display that cures around and offers notifications in that side view area. The GS7 runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.

The phone retails for around $675, but your price may vary depending on your phone carrier.
