Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 spec shootout

by Brandon Russell | February 21, 2016February 21, 2016 10:10 am PDT

What didn’t you like about the Galaxy S6? Samsung has fixed those issues in the Galaxy S7—and then some. Things like expandable storage, a larger battery, improved internal specs, a better camera, and IP68, making the device “dust tight” and water resistant. Additionally, the S7 sports an always-on display, which is something Motorola pioneered with its Moto X. Although the designs are similar and the Galaxy S6 is still a very good device, how can you not be tempted to upgrade?
