    Will I'm the owner of a iPhone 6S (and Nexus 6) and while the phone just works I feel that the S7 Edge is just more cutting Edge. I have only 2 issues with the S7; they removed the IR blaster and software updates are not timely especially if you're on Verizon. But then when I look at the Nexus 6p I find it just ordinary. I really love the idea of having Gear VR and Samsung pay which the iPhone and Nexus does not have.

    Unboxed demos are showing that the stock system uses 11.5 GB, with approx. 18GB Free

    That doesn't sound quite right. S6 edge has around 23GB free out of the box with ~7.5GB used for system. I cannot fathom why S7 edge would be so different?

    I'll be sure to ask about that today in my product training and get back to you guys on that.

    Demo units can't be used for this info as they contains ALL the demo videos, pictures and apps that you won't find in a regular unit.

    Available storage should be around the 24GB for most carriers.

    I too got hands on with the devices today at product training, though it was quite brief unfortunately.

    I only got to see the black versions but both look really nice. The S7 edge feels pretty much like a bigger S6 in the hand, so a noticeable improvement over the S6 edge. The S7 meanwhile, is even more comfortable as the rear is extra curved compared to the S7 edge. So in terms of in-hand comfort I'd rate them: S6 edge < S6 = S7 edge < S7.

    As for battery life, I directly asked our Samsung trainer how much of an improvement in battery life the S7 edge will get vs the regular S7. His response was essentially to not expect miracles because the larger display will drain more power, so expect the edge to last an extra hour or two a day vs the regular S7.

    Lastly, I had a nose in the settings to check the free storage. It was 7.27GB taken up by the system partition, leaving 24.14GB available. He had downloaded a couple of apps and photos etc. onto the phone so ~25GB is a reasonable amount to expect out of the box.

    I'm still undecided but I think I'm now more inclined to the regular S7 after having the hands-on with both phones and speaking to the Samsung guy about the battery life.

    I'm in UK (Exynos 8890) so here we get Samsung's proprietary Fast Charging tech, which has been improved vs the S6 generation. Sorry I don't know what QC version the US variant has.

    It's 2.0.
    I'm guessing that's to give parity in charging speeds between regions? It'd cause a bit of a controversy if the US variant charged way faster than the UK variant. Total guess by the way, I have no official info on this.

    I got my hands on both today as well at Best Buy. I saw your other posts and I am more comfortable with a little larger phone than you are it seems but I do miss a little smaller phone.

    I personally thought the S7 and S7 edge had about the same amount of curve just the S7 edge is thinner. I agree that the slight extra thickness made the S7 a little more comfortable but once you put a case on the S6 Edge, It will be basically as comfortable to me anyways.

    The winning factors that got me to stick with S7 edge over S7 are:

    Battery and the Edge features. I know a lot of people thinks it is a gimmick but simply the "people" and "tasks" edge seem like they will be pretty useful to me anyways.

    Thank You. Good to know the demos were short on storage. 25 should be plenty since it will just be apps for me...

    What were you hoping for, 5.7"?

    If you want that, get the Note. For me that's just too big. 5.5" was what I was waiting for for a while. I'm super psyched.
    I'm happy with the 5.5 as well

    I can't believe that they ditch the IR blaster yet again. Happened years ago when we moved away from Windows Mobile and it has happened again. Every piece of audio/video gear I own has IR. I had a fabulous app that I used with my Note 3, 4 and S6.
    I feel you. This is the reason why I didn't get rid of (trade in) my s6 edge. Unlike some people, I actually use the IR blaster.

    Yo chaps, I work for Samsung. I can confirm that official device specifications that I have been provided with includes OIS for both S7 and S7 edge.

    Where did you hear the S7 wouldn't have it?
    Since you work for Samsung, can you tell me if the finger scanner has improvements (is it more accurate)? Thanks

    I didn't know. I really like the edge but I have so much Apple gear (Apple Watch, 2 x iPads, Apple TV, MacBook Air).

    I could get the edge and keep my iPhone 6S plus but then I wondered how much usage I'd get from 2 phones. I also wonder how good the edge battery will be in comparison to the 6S plus.

    How is the audio quality (music) on S7 and S7 Edge? Is it the same as S6/Note 5 or better? Does it have UHQ support that is in S6 and Note 5?

    I have not been told about any improvements and unfortunately couldn't test the fingerprint scanner during my briefs hands on.

    Always On Display only works with Samsung apps so it is pretty useless.

    I bought a 128 gig sd card and it worked fine for 2 weeks. Then all of a sudden today my s7 edge is not reading it anymore. When I go to storage I can't even see it listed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
