I felt unsure about the upgrade, after all, other than battery life my S5 was running fine. Until I realized what I was missing.
The S7 was immediately faster. Significantly faster. Wait, I said to myself: It has to be due to it being new, once I load the apps it will slow down. Nope. Still fast. So much faster. I had forgotten how much speed makes a difference on a phone and the S7 is blazingly fast.
Battery life is a winner. Only 1 day so far of heavy use has left me needing a charge. Most days, I have over 40% left at the end of the day.
Camera is taking gorgeous photos and selfies are clearer too. The camera is faster too.
I took at risk at dinner with friends one night and put my phone in a glass of water completely submerged. It was fine. How cool is it to know that if I drop my phone in water, I'll be fine.
There are many other things I like about the Galaxy S7 but the highlights in order for me are:
As for things I don't like, I'm still getting used to the headset jack on the bottom. Otherwise, I haven't found a thing about it I don't like.
The wireless charging is cool too but I wouldn't buy the phone for it. The case I bought is the best case I've had for a phone so far. Slim, light, good grip, and great price: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BAHHVQM.
