    What's your browser choice between the two?

    I use Chrome across all my gadgets as it syncs my settings, bookmarks across them. So, Chrome is my choice.

    I'm using the Samsung browser, find it just as good as Chrome.

    Always used chrome in the past as like the sync between devices. But to me the Samsung browser with an ad blocker offers a much better browsing experience so I've been using that and am happy with it. If they could add chrome sync somehow it would be awesome!

    Which adblocker app are you using in the default browser? I just installed Adblock Plus (Samsung Browser).

    I used chrome on my old phone but switched to Samsung browser for the ad blocking. I installed the Samsung extension on my desktop chrome to sync bookmarks. It's slower but it's working for me. I don't change my bookmarks that often that it causes problems for me. I mainly just wanted the initial sync of them and can manage from there.

    Was reluctant to move away from Chrome, but after realizing that Samsung Browser was faster and had ad blocking, I made the switch.

    I liked the Samsung browser a lot but I went back to chrome. It's a weird reason but one of the main reasons I use any mobile browser is to Google things. I couldn't stand how when you just search something in the url box, you couldn't see full search recommendations. For example, if I wanted to search "top BBQ restaurants in Minneapolis", the Samsung browser would show "top BBQ restaurants...". Just a random example but I couldn't deal with it. I know I could type it in a widget, or ok Google, or go to Google, but just seems like a lot of extra steps for me. Weird I know haha.

    If you are into Google and it's services (like me), then clearly Chrome is your home.

    Chrome runs very slow on my Verizon S7e. I've tried the regular one, Beta and Dev versions. It ran way faster on my LG G3.

    Does Chrome run like this on other people's S7e's? Perhaps it's just a Verizon issue? Using Samsung browser with adblocking is super fast and like the Chrome on the G3.

    Chrome is indeed choppy noticeable when scrolling up and down in my S7 Edge. Sticking to stock browser + AdBlock for now.

    i hate chrome because you have to press two things to get to your bookmarks.
    with the samsung browser, you press one time, plus you can set your home button to a quick access feature, where it brings up bookmarks basically.

    Sync is really good in Chrome that as soon as you type the URL, it gives you options from your recently visited sites, bookmarks. So i rarely go to bookmarks to open a bookmark or visited link. And this works even if I had visited a link in my desktop.

    Does the Samsung browser sync with Chrome bookmarks? Because if it doesn't, then this makes how easy you say it is irrelevant. That would be nice, but I can't see any way to sync the bookmarks.

    i've synced to a samsung account, but have not tried to chrome.
    but why is it irrelevant? once the bookmarks are on the phone, its one tap to get to samsung bookmarks. with chrome, you have to tap menu, and then select boomarks. that infuriates me for some reason. lol. chrome has never handled bookmarks good. they want you to type in the search box instead.

    The ease of getting to the bookmarks on thr Samsung browser is irrelevant if it won't sync with the bookmarks I have on Chrome on my PC. With Chrome, if I make a bookmark on my PC, if I go to bookmarks on my phone, it's also there. If I make a bookmark on my phone, a few minutes later it's accessible on my PC whenever I want to. That's the reason I use Chrome. If there is no way for the bookmarks on Chrome in the PC to sync and appear on the Samsung browser like this, then it's useless to me. Hence, the ease of bookmark access on that browser is irrelevant TO ME if no such syncing feature exists.

    well how often are you adding bookmarks, versus using the bookmarks?
    but anyways, looks like there's a samsung chrome extension that will allow you to sync. i may try this..
