Samsung Galaxy S7 Compared To S6, S5 and LG G5, S7 Dual SIM Variant Is a Steal on Newegg, At $529.99!

Thanks to Newegg, an US-based International Retailer, the Galaxy S7 Dual Sim 32GB variant can be purchased at a price of $529.99. It is available in Gold, Black and White colors but sadly no Silver. Supply is limited, so each customer can only order up to 5 units. The device features a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED display, featuring a Quad HD resolution.

It has 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage capacity, an Exynos Octa Core processor, a 12 megapixel rear camera featuring f/1.7 aperture along with a 1.4µm pixel size and finally a 3000mAh non-removable battery. Similar to Android Marshmallow, it has Quick Charging and Wire charging capabilities. In case you are wondering, the standard Galaxy S7 is entirely similar in design to the dual-SIM variant.

However, the standard variant has its SIM tray divided between a microSD and a Nano-SIM card but in the Dual-SIM variant, you can replace the microSD with another SIM card. This will facilitate the users with more than one mobile numbers by sparing them the trouble of carrying another handset.

At the same time, you should keep in mind that the Dual-SIM device is a sub variant of the original Galaxy S7.  Therefore, if you really want the latest Android updates badly, you will probably have to wait longer.

Now, with Galaxy S7 releasing, a lot of Galaxy S5 and S6 users are wondering whether they should upgrade their device. Now, talking from the surface, the S7 is not a major leap from the S6 or S5.

There is polished glass and metal frame beneath the Super AMOLED display and the S7 is packing a lot of major changes under the hood. A chief point of difference to be noted is that the Galaxy S5 feels rather frail and plasticky when compared to the metal/glass aesthetic, featured on the S6 and S7.

The design has been carefully tweaked by Samsung due to which, the S7 flagship looks different. The rear camera edges have been rounded off slightly while its bulge has been reduced by a millimeter.

In terms of size, the S7 is slightly larger. The S7 Edge may have a larger 5.5inch screen, compared to the 5.1inch screen on the S7, it has the same Super AMOLED 1440X2560 pixels display, seen on the older S6.

In fact, tests have revealed that the S7 screen is even slightly dull when compared to the S6 display. 560cd/m2 is the maximum brightness of the S6 while the S7 can only manage 469.8cd/m2. You will find a Super AMOLED 5.1inch display on the budget Galaxy S5 Neo.

It has a full-HD resolution of 1920×1080 and a full brightness of 388cd/m2. Keep in mind that all these devices have a contrast ratio of 1:1. The Samsung Galaxy S6 wins if screen brightness is a more important parameter for you. Other than that, both the S6 and S7 have the same contrast ratio and color-accuracy, along with the same resolution.

In the meantime, a lot of users have started reporting that AT&T is releasing their latest security patch for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices under this network. The security patch level of this device is increased to the month of May, by this update.

The official website has not been updated by the carrier yet. As a result, we are not sure of the exact details or featured to be added/tweaked with this this update. It has just started rolling out; therefore, it will take some time till the OTA notification arrives on your Galaxy. You can also head to over to Settings and manually check for the update, in case you are getting impatient.
