Truth be told, Samsung will have to come up with something really new that will raise the bar high for next year. We have already done a review on both devices stating all the hardware specs and the impression.

1) Processing Power: We did benchmark test of both devices and as they have same processing hardware, we got same results. They clearly indicate both S7 , Edge are most powerful device till now. They are remarkable improvements over both Note 5 and S6. New HTC 10 has same power as of the new S series but in design wise we will pick Samsung. These two phones aced on all sectors including Multi core, single-core, graphics and memory.
2) Storage : Last year’s phone had limited internal storage option and no external SD card support. This year we have two option which is 32 and 64 GB for internal memory.

This is really cool because people can now keep huge files, record big 4K videos and enjoy all their contents without worrying about storage and spending high for big storage models.

The new wide angle lens with f/1.7 and dual pixel auto focus makes the camera very bright. Even at dark conditions of 8 PM the pictures had way more light that it looked like 5 PM. We would say that the camera is far better than 16 MP sensor. The 4K UHD recording, slow motion, optically stabilized videos gives true exciting experience of the phone and cinematography. This devices has the best camera and we would definitely choose it over some normal point and shoots.
4) Display : The Quad HD SAMOLED display with pixel density of minimum 534 ppi ensures that you enjoy the best content. The Ultra HD videos recorded and played on the S7 Edge gave real time experience. The playback, details due to both camera and screen was fabulous. HD Games like NFS, Grand theft Auto looked crispy, vibrant and gave great experience.
5) Build : The new back curve of flat model made the phone fit right in hand. Edge’s dual curved glass panel made it beautiful with the over all metal body. The buttons are at perfect place with clicky feel. In finger print scanner test both phones lead the iPhone in speed and accuracy. The device is water, dust and scratch resistant so do not fear about mishaps.
