    hello. im new to this forum so i hope this dont sound like a dumb question. a few years ago i got talked into switching to an i phone. now im switching back to what feels better. i want an s7 or an s7 edge. the only difference i can see it the size of the screen which is almost not noticeable, the battery size and then the price. lately i've been messing with the s7 edge but im having trouble using it because my hands keep touching the sides of the screen and im jumping from one thing to the next. i'd like to use the s7 edge and maybe a phone case would solve this issue. if not i'm going with the s7 just to save money. any ideas would be appreciated. thanks

    It really depends on your liking. The S7 edge has bigger screen and bigger battery. But if money is a problem, an S7 is ok. I liked the edge versions better. You'll get used to it soon. Go to a phone store and try both for yourself.

    thanks for the reply. a few others have told me that if you get a phone case for the edge that you wont have so many issues with your hands or fingers touching the screen.
    take care

    If it was me making this choice, I would go for the Edge. I've played with my mom's S6 Edge a bunch of times and it's really smooth and wonderful. But that's personal bias working for me there haha.

    I'd recommend watching lots of unboxing videos on YouTube, just to see what both phones entail. This may help you make a more informed decision.

    Good luck deciding, and let us know what you choose!

    It is almost impossible to find a good screen protector and forget tempered glass protectors for the Edge. The rounded edges causes issues. With that said the Edge has a bigger battery, birghter and bigger screen.

    My Edge has done ok for two months without screen protection.

    If your hard on phones get the non - Edge. If not, spend the extra for the Edge.

    While I prefer the look and feel of the edge, I worry about protection (I generally prefer the tempered glass protectors) and finding a decent case that doesn't add too much bulk.

    I would go with the S7Edge. I had one as a loaner when I returned my Note 7. I thought that it was a superb device. I thought of keeping it, but I do use the S Pen on the Note, so I went back to it.

    I'd go for S7 Edge for the screensize and battery life. You can always slap a case on it and that will reduce accidental touches

    I'm confused too. But I'd go for S7 Edge too for the VR promotion.

    Given a choice between the two, I'd go for the S7 Edge.

    Methinks S7 Edge has got the edge over the S7

    S7

    The edge has redundant features, it's a gimmick phone and subject to random edge touches. I know two with them and they are sorry they got them. Not a big sample size obviously and from the responses here a minority but the S7 felt way better in my hand when making the decision.

    It depends on your choice if you like the bigger go for s7 edge but if you like the smaller go for s7.. But for me id rather go for the s7 since i still cant appreciate the importance of the edge display

    The consensus is pretty overwhelming for the Edge. Thanks for posting guys, I think I will follow your advice and get an Edge!

    Honestly, I could never make the s7 Edge work. I really enjoyed the display, but the lack of bezels on the side caused me to constantly activate things with my fingers holding the edge. In the end - it was a gorgeous design that just didn't fit my hands very well (maybe I have big hands...).

    S7 for me, because the edge screen will easily make screen untouchable while you holding it and touched the edge screen by your hand at the same time.

    It also depends on the gigs the s7edge only offers a 32 gig phone I need at least 64 with SD card also.

    I think as someone with small hands the S7 would be better than the S7 edge..im actually kinda worried that s7 might be a little big if i get it

    I don't have large hands and one of the things I love about my s7 edge is the way it feels in hand, even with its Tech 21 on it. It's not so wide and I love that.

    I think it truly cones down to your personal preference and how you think you'd manage using that particular phone for two or more years - or however long you keep your phones for.

    If you're finding that you have some problems holding the Edge device, I would suggest the Galaxy option. I prefer the Edge, myself; but again, it comes down to what you yourself are comfortable with. Plus, if the Galaxy S series phone is cheaper and you'd be able to hold it better, it sounds like a win-win situation.

    Good luck, and let us know what you've decided!

    Having had to go back to my s7edge from Note 7 its obvious how much Samsung improved palm rejection on the note. I didn't notice how bad it is on the 7edge - always hitting icons near edge & opening em up or nothing works then I realise Ive my palm on screen. Id definitely go for s7.

    It's near impossible on the S7 as well... the screen profile isn't flat. There is a subtle bulge in the glass and the center is a fair amount farther out than the margins. When my wife had a S7, I gave up trying to get a protector that fit, nevermind a glass one. The plastic ones that DID fit properly were paper thin sheets and were a nightmare to fit. I stopped trying.

    If you are a light user and don't mind a smaller screen, the S7 is a good choice. The battery is a lot smaller than the Edge, so you would find yourself charging far more often.
