    I love everything about this phone. I still tell people how great it is and it's the best phone me and my husband have ever had considering we had 6 previous HTC's. I love all the gestures and using your palm to screenshot and my screen stays on when looking at it works for me. I also like waving my palm to turn on phone. The camera palm gesture doesn't always work for me so I say cheese LOL! I like the AOD and the themes. Camers is amazing our M9 was horrible. We took video and pics at Garth Brooks the other night and at REO the night before they were great. I love the battery on this thing too and the screen is great. I too wish their was a good tempered glass screen protector where it wont mess up no matter what case you use. I am still waiting on Zagg.

    I'm so torn between the HTC 10 and S7Edge. I'm coming from an HTC M8 - I'm due for an upgrade as of last December and waited this long. Based on initial reviews of the 10, it seems there is a ton of hype behind it, but in reality it is still not quite an S7Edge killer. I'm starting to wonder though, are the online reviewers biased towards the marketing GIANT Samsung - makes it hard to believe since the phone isn't released to the public.

    As my first phone in years with an actual button for the home key I dislike that very much. Love the phone otherwise. I often use a stylus when using the phone and that does not work well with a physical button. Come on Samsung, get with the program. Use haptic keys that can disappear from front of phone when not needed.

    One month later, this phone is still the best on the market. There's minor gripes here and there, but it's great at pretty much everything. Best in class display, camera, battery life, etc. Fast wireless charging is so useful. So is the water resistance.

    When people bring up the HTC 10 now, I kind of feel bad. It just can't match the overall product that Samsung released here. This is the kind of phone that sets the bar for the year and I'm guessing only the iPhone 7, Note 6, and possibly the next Nexus are going to be contenders to it.

    Me and my husband had every HTC phone since the original EVO from Sprint. We did really like the M7 and then loved the M8. We should of never gone to the M9 cause we didn't care for it wasn't worth the upgrade camera wasn't any good. I knew someone who got the 6 Edge and loved it than I knew someone who got the 6 Edge plus when it came out and it made me want a bigger screen phone. I love HTC and Sense always have but I wanted a change. The M10 seems nice but I wish the screen was going to be a little bigger that is why we went with the Edge. You will love the Edge and the battery is amazing too. Best phone we've ever had and i am not sorry I didn't wait for the M10 I love this phone. But HTC is going to be a good phone too though. So your choice but if it was just the S7/M10 I would of maybe waited but when they did the Edge bigger this year with a bigger battery different from the 6's from last year I wanted it. It's really nice and has so many cool features.

    I am very happy with the phone all around.

    I am disappointed by pictures of sunset scenes, the sky is way overexposed to show its beautiful colors.
    Well, what are you exposing for (meaning subject)?

    The EVO was my first real smart phone and it alone made me never want another HTC... By far the worst battery life of any phone I have ever had. Couldn't even make it though an entire work day without a task killer (and barely still with that), and was awful to travel with for the same reason. I hated the stock launcher too. I'm sure their phones are much better now but that phone ruined the brand for me. It's been all Moto or Samsung for me since.

    The only thing I wish this phone had are front-facing speakers. That was so hard to leave the Nexus 6 over.

    Other than that, it's a joy to use day to day. The display is amazing (the COLORS, man!!), the camera is awesome, and the weight is perfect.

    At first, I had a hard time using the device because of the edge display's sensitivity. A low-profile case helped with that, but sometimes when I'm using a charger that doesn't fit the case and have to take it out, i get kinda frustrated again.

    This was my first edge phone. I previously had the s6.

    Pros:

    1. I absolutely LOVE the screen. The colors are bright and crisp.
    2. It is very responsive and I'm still adjusting to how I touch/handle the phone.
    3. Unlike my previous Galaxies I haven't had any lag, unexpected shutdowns or freezing.
    4. This thing freakin' flies!
    5. The sleek shape is very mesmerizing.
    6. I can block callers/messages from the call log without using a separate app. Easy peazy.

    Cons:

    1. I had to sell my first born to afford it.
    2. The fingerprints...omg...I can never seem to find my screen wiper.
    3. I hate that if I want to choose a different app for a particular use I have to go to the settings and change the default. There are some things I set and forget and others I need different apps for ie wallpapers, ringtones. I like how the s6 allowed me to tic off the option to use the same one all the time or choose an app just once.

    I have not one single regret or buyer's remorse since day one.

    With power saver mode engaged it will stop streaming music or stop shooting a video, even if you don't want it to. Also can't seem to send attached files by email - it takes hours for them to get there. Not pleased with these 'bugs.'

    I have had the Samsung S7 edge for awhile. Love it.
    HOWEVER, drives me crazy that when I delete an email I have to immediately go to the recycle bin and delete or the email appears back in my inbox. It is something drives me around the bend.

    I have identified a 6.0.1 software bug. Turning on the magnification feature "tripple tap" kills the always on display. When you go to "always on" it says it is on. But it is clearly not on. Going into the option shows it is off. Turn it on and it kills the tripple tap feature. I am on Sprint with a S7 Edge. Not good to have a feature that helps people with bad eyesight just turn off by itself. Anyone else have this glitch?

    Well, here it goes. (And no, I'm not interested in making a video.) I bought a silver S7E after having used Windows phones for a number of years. (Which is a whole other story. Short version-W10 for mobile blows.) After deciding to switch from WP, I chose the S7E for a couple of reasons:

    1. I already have a well-established and well-used Google account, and I don't have any desire to dive into the world of iOS. My wife has an iPhone 6, and I find iOS to be inflexible and annoying, though pretty.

    2. It was on AT&T.

    3. It looked good.

    4. I liked the size.

    5. It has a HUGE battery.

    So far I'm very impressed. The phone is exactly the right size. I'm 6'2, and it's just at the limit of what I can comfortably use one-handed. It's slippery and the back is perfectly flat, so without a case I was constantly afraid of dropping it. Fortunately the case showed up the other day (Obliq Slim Meta from Amazon). It looks great and adds the perfect amount of grip and protection without making it too big. The phone is tall. When I use it to make a phone call it almost feels like I'm using an old-fashioned landline. It really has a nice "full size" feel to it, but it still slips into my pocket nicely because of the rounded edges.

    The screen is fantastic. Daytime, night, in the sun, in the office, it doesn't matter. It always looks good. the curved edges are beautiful, but not all that useful. I have a few apps and contacts tucked away on the pull-out edge menu that Samsung provides, but if it stopped working tomorrow I could live without it. Also, without a case it was almost impossible to hold without accidentally touching something on the sides. This is really annoying when watching a video (side touches tend to make the video skip forward or backward), and made it almost impossible for my 5-year-old to watch movies on the phone. However, this issue disappeared once I put the case on (for better or for worse).

    The camera rocks. I stuck with Lumias for a long time because even crappy Lumias take decent photos. (I have a 520 that I bought for $30 that could hold its own against most Android phones.) The S7E and the iPhone are the only phones I have seen with cameras that are as good as or better than the best Lumias. Bear in mind that I don't know much about photography, so this is from the "pull it out of your pocket and shoot" perspective. The pictures and videos look great, the autofocus is instant, and it will shoot as fast as you can press the button. I have two minor gripes: (1) The zoom function produces great images, but it's not very smooth when shooting a video. (2) A dedicated camera button would have been appreciated, though double-tapping the home button works as advertised. I haven't even tried slo-mo yet.

    The fingerprint scanner is also snappy, though I have yet to figure out how to simply unlock the screen with just a swipe. Fro now it's a click, then swipe the screen, then swipe the fingerprint reader. But it works reliably and quickly, and it's still faster than punching in a code.

    Battery life is everything it's cracked up to be. It gets through a full day easily, so much so that recharging at night is often optional. The fast charger is indeed fast, but even my old "slow" chargers that I have laying around the house charge it up more quickly than I would have thought. I'm not sure what kind of charging magic Samsung slipped in there, but the phone seems to make the most out of whatever it's given. I'm also using my old Nokia DT-900 wireless chargers, and they work fine even with the case on.

    The waterproofing seems to work. I've had it out poolside a few times and used it with wet hands, and it hasn't suffered any ill effects. I still can't quite bring myself to dunk it, so more testing may be in order. It is nice to know that if the kid splashes water on the phone it's not the end of the world.

    Finally, the speed and performance of the phone is amazing. Granted I don't game on my phone, but I've never had it slow down for anything, no matter how many tabs or programs were running. It will occasionally get hot, which is amplified by the metal case, but that was really only when it was brand new and I was still installing all of my apps and really pushing it hard. For day-to-day use, it's perfect.

    I installed the Google Now launcher since having the Google Now screen on the left just seems like The Right Way To Do It. I also installed Nova Launcher to use the trick that allows the screen to be scaled differently so that you can have smaller icons (and more of them). Both of the launchers work well.

    The split screen feature works, but I haven't really used it. Google "on tap" works, but doesn't seem very smart. I'll keep trying, and I'm sure Google will keep making it better. Overall the predictive features on the phone work really well, sometimes well enough to be a little creepy. I guess that's the price of progress.

    Overall the S7E is a great phone, and well worth the premium price. I can see myself being happy with it for a long time.

    Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It is just so good. The camera is great. Battery life is very great, and it has become better after software update. I love the edge screen. And the display is so great.

    About the dislike, I think that it does not have Radio, the speaker is below average I think (my previous LG G3 has so much better camera), AOD on LG G5 is better (they can show you notifications like Instagram, Line, Whatsapp I think from what I've seen on Youtube), and it has so many bloatware. Not that much. It's tolerable. I don't know about yours guys, but mine is fast when it comes to the temperature. It is so hot when I am browsing. But it become cool fast. I think that is all. My dislike is minor, except for the speaker. I just don't like it so much. Otherwise, it is a very great phone.

    I took some good video the other night of this band playing at the bar. The camera and taking videos are great. My friend had a LG V10 I think and her phone took great pictures but she is getting the Edge in June when she is due for upgrade and she agreed mine took better selfies. But i have one complaint and it's coming from HTC's especially the M7 through M9 series miss the boom stereo speakers on the front. Playing back one of my music videos it wasn't very loud at all. But if that's my only complaint I love this phone still so much. Little things it does and gestures it's awesome! I'm still learning camera features and what each mode does.
