Galaxy S7 Targets Gamers

Thursday, March 10th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Android, Hardware & Peripherals, Smartphones

With the new Galaxy S7 phone, Samsung is putting their sites on gamers, adding a whole new set of featured that aims to appeal to the growing number of people who play games on their phones.


The most noticeable feature is the Game Launcher app. The app contains a suite of tools to make gaming easier. It allows users to turn off notifications so they can play without interruption. It also speeds up game downloads and has power-saving options to prevent your phone from going dead just as you’re about to win.


You can also lock the screen so you don’t accidentally back out of a game, plus take instant screenshots and videos while you play.

Those games should play a lot smoother thanks to faster CPU and GPU speeds and 4GB of RAM. There’s also an improved cooling system to prevent your phone from overheating during graphic-intensive games. These are the first phones to use the Vulkan graphics API, which should make for beautiful-looking gaming experience.

The phones allow you to use optional Bluetooth gaming controllers.


Samsung is offering a free Gear virtual reality headset if you purchase a GS7 before March 18, 2016. The goggles give you a complete virtual reality experience when you slip your phone in and play compatible games or videos on your phone. Normally, the headsets run $99. Plus you’ll get $50 worth of VR-compatible games while supplies last.


The Galaxy S7 isn’t an inexpensive phone. It costs more than $700, but you may be able to get a better deal through your phone carrier.

As a kid who grew up watching Star Trek, I have to say I’m just a little impressed that these tiny computers that fit in our pockets now work as communicators, computers we can talk to and get answers from, tri-corders and now apparently holodecks.  If they figure out how to put a phaser in one, I would be pretty excited.
