  • Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge... Anybody using one?

    I recently bought a Galaxy S7, and am very pleased with it. The pre-order promo through BCA was a pretty good deal for 8.3 jt, including charger case. My only complaint is that I have not received the firmware update yet; hopefully that will get pushed soon. Are any other forum users using an S7 / S7 Edge? How do you like it?

    Have you gotten a Gear VR headset? If not, do it! If my budget permitted, I'd get an S7 egde or maybe the upcoming Galaxy Note if the camera is as good as the S7's.

      Don't have one but freind got one with the v.r. headset and it is so kool . I'm hoping I break my phone so I can get one. Watched the surfing vid and the scuba one and it is incredible . I just hope they don't come out with any porn for it lol. I understand you can also buy the camera pod for it to make vids for it.

        I have not gotten into the VR yet (as the S7 came with the charger case rather than VR headset), but now am becoming intrigued. Perhaps the next time I go to the US, I will buy a used Gear VR headset off Craig's List. The charger case is rather interesting from a physics standpoint. It has a 3000 mAh battery (same capacity as the phone), but realistically transfers significantly less power to the phone due to the inefficiencies of wireless charging. Specifically, the phone gets quite warm while charging from the case, plus it is losing energy from coils on the charger and receiver assemblies. Also, the case effectively doubles the thickness and weight of the phone (though it is actually pleasant, as the phone itself feels almost surreally thin).

        A major selling point was the IP68 "waterproof" rating, as my previous daily driver, a beloved Nexus 5, died in a "got" (open sewer).

          Haha there very much is VR porn already. They even have video games with "controllers" which move along whatever is going on in the headset to simulate the act on the wearer's part.

            I recently purchased an S7 Edge, a very nice phone.

              I received the big April firmware update today. So far, there are not any noticeable changes, but I am glad to be on the latest security update.

                I own an S7 and it is really a decent device expect for some wrong touches. Plus, with S Assistant, it is quite easy to transfer data from blackberry to Galaxy S7. impressed.
