If you’re really into smartphones, then you were probably on the edge of your seat waiting for the Galaxy S8 unpacked event. Samsung today unveiled their newest Galaxy S8 flagships with them “marking the new era” for smartphone design. This statement might indicate that they are “showing off”, but it is spot on. Samsung’s newest approach to smartphone design is, to say the least, stunning.
I’ve wanted to post this review since March but rather chose to wait until I have used the phone for some time. The S7 or S7 edge’s design is not new to Samsung. Samsung completely changed the design of its Galaxy S series back in April 2015, when they introduced the S6 and S6 edge. These two phones were two of the most beautiful and well-designed phones of the year. They were the first phones (by Samsung) that actually gave their users a premium build feel. Last year, when I first got my S6, I was a bit confused if I should go ahead and buy the S6 edge, or just stick to the S6. The S6 edge was Samsung’s first phone featuring dual edge display, and that actually gave the phone its unique beautiful design. I wasn’t really sure how much use I would have for the edge display, and so I went for the regular S6. This year it was time for me to adopt the new edge technology and give it a chance. This is my review of the new S7 edge, its pros, and cons.
