phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 14 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Beautiful, polished-to-perfection, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail - and with its unique "edge" screen, the S7 Edge is a sight to behold
  • Compact for a 5.5 incher
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Gorgeous, large, curved screen, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The extra navigation tools on the "edge" are definitely useful when used judiciously
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions - easily one of the best around
  • Brilliant, beast of a battery life, that takes it a notch above the already excellent battery life of the Galaxy S7
  • microSD storage slot
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
