    To me, some themes aren't that subtle. They're really noticeable, and I love the theme engine for that since it changes a whole heap like the notification tray, quick toggles, pop-up messages and even the power menu. It's amazing and reminds me a whole lot of CyanogenMod's theme engine in CM12 and newer.

    I'm not big on TouchWiz's stock look, but man, those themes are amazing. My personal favorite is the dark Material one. Perfect for AMOLED and my eyes.
    What theme is that?

    Ah already running that

    That's what I get on my S6, it should be much better than that.

    With your usage patterns, you will get much better than that.

    This will come down to basic hardware. The SoC and battery capacity will provide longer SoT than your current phone.

    sigh, the theme stores search must be broken as I can't find that either on there. Or maybe it just shows themes that support the S7 series...

    I'm looking forward to checking out these themes. My HTC had a themes folder and you downloaded it and it changed your wall paper certain main icons and your sound and font. Never had Sammy before can't wait to check it out.

    I see only a couple of battery life screenshots. Is it holding consistently since it is now a few days out? Improving/worsening? Now that iit is broken in, how does it compare to the s6?

    I'm trying to decide between the S7 and S7 Edge - anybody on here know how the bigger batter/bigger screen vs smaller battery/smaller screen turns out by direct comparison?

    Personally I would say the choice between the S7 and the S7 Edge, is purely down to which one you prefer the look and the style of. For me, the S7 Edge just brings something I have not had on another phone

    innfy - just wondered, have you tried the camera in 4:3 and 16:9 mode, and noticed much difference? I tend to want to take shots in 16:9, and on my current LG G3, have had to reduce the pixel count down to get the 16:9, similar to what needs to happen on the S7

    This is typical for most smartphones. The sensor is 4:3 in actual shape. When you choose to take a picture in 16:9 mode, you are actually letterboxing or cropping the top and bottom of the picture off, so in fact you are using less pixels to take the picture. Take the same picture in both 4:3 and 16:9 without really moving. You'll notice that in 16:9, you actually have a reduced field of view in your picture. Essentially it's the same as taking the 4:3 photo, cropping to 16:9 and zooming to fit your screen. I always take photos in 4:3. Looks better on most 4:3 tablets and is a hell of a lot better for printing. If I want it to be 16:9, I can crop it myself.

    Cool, thanks for that. Thought it might have done something different. Suppose just nice seeing full screen on a 16:9 display

    Both screens have the same number of pixels so edge should have better battery.

    I have to say that the Samsung Browser is actually a pretty damn good browser. It's fast and support adblockers now. It seems much faster than chrome on my S7 Edge.

    Shame that you can't have chrome bookmark sync with it though.

    Yeah just tried the Samsung browser with ABP and man all the annoying ads are gone. Browsing on Android phone now feels as smooth as Safari on iOS with ad block. Chrome sucks on Android can't browse any heavy site without lag, stutter. One more thing I miss from Safari on iOS is the reading view in the browser.

    This is a pretty nifty feature.

    When the phone detects that the charging port is wet, charging automatically stops to prevent damage.

    I actually find that a pretty smart thing to do since the charger itself may not be water resistant, along with the connector.

    IMO, it's pretty smart.

    Not sure the 7.17 GB system includes Sammy's bloatware. That may be just the OS. And, of course, it doesn't include the carrier bloat we'll get in the U.S.
    Gosh that's big. My first Windows 95 computer came with a 1 gig hard drive--and I thought that was big at the time.

    Now though 32g seems small as that's what my S3 came with almost four years ago. I have that about 2/3 full just with OS & apps.
