Well, until we get the live picture, I can tell you that holding up my S7 edge to my iPhone 6s Plus reveals a considerably smaller form factor for the S7 with the same size screen. The S7 is much easier to hold in your hands. Samsung absolutely nailed the size!

The size is an issue for me too but everyone who I've seen hold it all say the same thing that it doesn't feel big, if you look at the dimensions the width is the same as the S5

Here you go...pic of my iPhone 6s Plus and my S7 edge next to each other. Hard to believe they are the same screen size!

Personally I think the S7 Edge's size is perfect... I always felt my Note 4 was a tad too big, then believe it or not I went to a Nokia 1520 and its large 6" screen is great BUT in general the phone's just too damn big lol.. I've always thought 5.5" was my sweet spot and with the S7 Edge's design next to the iPhone Plus it looks like comparing my 1520 next to S6 Edge.

Even though S7 edge is smaller than 6s plus I'm actually finding it hard to grip the S7 edge than my 6s plus because of the edges in S7. May be putting a case will make it better but currently it's not that comfortable holding for longer durations.

The iphone screen looks wider. Is that just an illusion because of the bezels or does the iphone use a different screen ratio (i.e. 16:9, 16:10) than the S7?

Illusion.

Both 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 creates a 16:9 aspect ratio when viewed in landscape orientation.

I almost prefer the girth of the iPhone and phones alike. Im a big guy. I received my cases today for the S7 edge and it feels like it's a toy compared to my past phones. I will have to get used to the smaller size because im trying to break away from apple. When I went to Best Buy to review the phone I had a pit in my stomach because I think i'll be let down by the size of the phone. But we'll see. One more week to go for us Verizon users.
