Bet­ter pro­ces­sor, bet­ter cam­era, and the re­in­state­ment of ex­pand­able stor­age truly make the Sam­sung Galaxy S7 edge the phone that everyone de­sires.

In­stead, the Smart Man­ager takes some time (two weeks, to be pre­cise) to learn your habits and what you usu­ally do with the phone.

Once the Smart Man­ager ac­cu­mu­lates enough data, it then syncs and tweaks the bat­tery to act in ac­cor­dance with your phone use, and believe it or not, it ac­tu­ally works. Once synced, we ex­pe­ri­enced close to two days of use with the phone on a full charge, be­fore need­ing to be plugged into the wall out­let.

But above all else, the crown­ing glory of the Galaxy S7 edge is its new cam­era sen­sor. Com­pared to the Galaxy S6 edge, Sam­sung has had to shrink down the sen­sor size from 16MP to 12MP. That 12MP sen­sor, how­ever, is based on its new DualPixel ISOCELL tech­nol­ogy, which sta­tis­ti­cally lets in 54 per­cent more light into the sen­sor when­ever you snap a pic­ture with it.

To put it into per­spec­tive, due to the sen­sor's greater sen­si­tiv­ity to light sources, Sam­sung has touted that the Galaxy S7 edge is more ca­pa­ble of tak­ing bet­ter pho­tos in low-light sce­nar­ios than any other An­droid phones on the cur­rent mar­ket. Sam­sung's claim was ac­tu­ally true to an ex­tent, and the pho­tos we took dur­ing the evening showed re­mark­able clar­ity and sharp­ness in de­tail (there was still a con­sid­er­able amount of noise in sce­nar­ios where the only light source was from a lone wall lamp).

It may only be 12MP, but Sam­sung's new ISOCELL sen­sor is more light sen­si­tive. CON­CLU­SION
