    What I mean is that with my usage and network etc I always don't get anything near the battery life that is reported elsewhere.

    If it last a day in my use I am happy
    I'm the same! I always see people posting on the Internet 4 days on the battery, 10 SoT etc and Im lucky to get a day and 3 hour SoT!

    Can someone translate the GeekBench 4.0 results to us?

    But that was also over a 10 hour period, which would equate to 30 hours. And it shows he ran some benchmarks. Looks to me like this thing will get 7-8 hours sot over a 16-18 hour day. That's really impressive
    Let's hope that, it would be very handful in daily usage

    Thank you for answering questions so far. Phone looks class, ordered the regular s7 in black myself. Not sure if it was a mistake now.

    One quick Q about the Always on screen, is it just displayed in portrait or can it be used in landscape?

    Ordered a spigen case with a kickstand and would like to be able to use it as a bedside clock.

    Thanks

    Thank you for the quick reply. Looks like I will have to order a Qi charging stand to use it the way I want to.

    A few of my friends have received their S7 Edge units from their respective carriers.

    Man, I can't wait to try it out! Sounds more and more like one really strong leading contender for Phone of the Year 2016.

    Though I might wait out for the Note 6 and then I'll consider an upgrade if my G4 dies prematurely. Always been a Note fan.

    hi, I really like to know if you can use the s7 as an infrared transmitter/ called the infrared blaster (like the s6 edge does)

    According to samsung's dutch support it does(confirmed twice). They do agree its not visible on the top side of the device.
    Can you check if you can remote control your tv set (by infrared) or use a camera to detect infrared signals (with some app)?

    Lots of ppl want to know, including me

    Thanks!!!

    Battery life due to the user habits, duration, background apps, brightness, apps used, ambient temperature, sensors used. GPS, bluetooth, wifi, signal strength, headphones, speakers, volume etc. It is far too subjective to correlate anything but your own use.

    I would suggest folks that use other's use for reference might also believe wrestling on TV is real sports

    Glad you were able to get this so early. Thanks for sharing. When you pinch the home screen to get to the home screen settings (Wallpapers, Themes, Screen Grid, etc.), is there a 5x5 option for the screen grid size? I've gotten used to that on the Note 5 and figured the screen would be large enough to accomdate it on the S7 Edge.

    I received mine from T-Mobile yesterday, and yes it does have the setting for the 5x5 grid.

    where do you get that info from?
    according to samsung support it does. But it could be implemented near the flashlight or something. Did you try?

    There is also no apps to use for it. They would definately bundle on I think

    even on my s6 there was no app pre-installed for using the remote.

    try "anymote smart remote" thats a good app.

    The IR Blaster is not shown in the full, official, Samsung User Manual for the Galaxy S7 Edge, G935F, page #7

    See, also, Galaxy S7 Edge FULL User Manuals for other models.

    I've seen a couple people on these forums with the Snapdragon model complaining about lots of heat and poor, laggy performance.

    Has that been an issue with your Exynos model, or has it been mostly smooth sailing?

    Smooth sailing atleast for me.

    The gfx tests I ran did make the phone warm but I wouldn't call it got.

    Considering battery life. It's not really I would expect but I will see if it gets better after few more charges and more normal usage

    Yes please keep us informed on the battery life. Geez I need it to at least last all day without turning anything off, making adjustments to this and that, etc. Always been my major gripe with Sammys, the phones are battery hogs. No good in having the perfect phone and it doesnt last throughout the day. May have to get an extended battery for my uses. I've gotten spoiled with my 6s+.
