Right so I love updating my phone, especially my Samsung stuff, but after the news of the s7/edge I just don't think there is enough happening to make me interested.
So they take away my fav feature IR Blaster! (kids always lose the remote !daily use!)
It has water proofing, (don't ever get my phone wet)
Faster processor/graphics, (The S6 seems pretty fast, games seem pretty good already)
Bigger battery (great to have this, does make the phone heaver than the S6 though!)
Camera (Now everyone talks about this like they take photos at night time! not interested)
Screen is the same tech, just an amoled feature of always on.
Water cooling! (that's just cool bragging rights!)
SD card (I do like this, but not needed when you have the 64GB S6 variety)
The LG G5 how ever seems a pretty good innovative device, it kinda appeals to my geek side more that this S7 can.
Is the S7 trying to be like a certian Apple's prodigy i.e not innovative (just safe) or is the smart phone world running out of ideas and at its peak?
Seems like you have thought it all out and understand the differences just fine. If it doesn't provide any value, don't upgrade. Not sure the purpose of the thread, are you wanting us to talk you into spending money you don't see the value in spending, for any particular reason? :)
The purpose of this thread is to see if I am alone in this type of thinking or am I being to hard on Samsung and asking to much of their flagship phone.
