  1. Like the specs on this – really interested to see how the camera performs. Still think I’ll wait to hear about the Note 6 though 🙂 Good to see Samsung have used super fast batteries though:p

    1. I’m tempted by the 7 Edge but want Silver so will have to wait. Samsung will suffer profit wise as I can’t see why anyone would buy the 64gb versions.

      1. Well 64gb is very useful. Remember the 32gb only has 22gb available. The micro SD card is not available for installing apps or games. Samsung promoted the S7 with Vulkan API for gamers. These high graphic games will be massive. It’s disappointing again that Samsung doesn’t offer the 64gb option. It sides with the carriers or networks as offering a lower storage module means higher contracts can be sold for cloud usage. However most people should be ok with 22gb plus a micro SD card.

  2. Spot on Gavin and is one reason why my main phone is iOS whilst my ‘play-phones’ are Android. I much prefer the freedom of an internal 128GB storage with no preferences given as to who gets what with network operators.
