Gad­get worth the wait

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TECH WORLD -

WHAT makes a good smart­phone – ex­tra­or­di­nary de­sign, ground­break­ing fea­tures or high- pow­ered per­for­mance? A good smart­phone is one that an­swers the needs and de­mands of the user.

Cre­ated for to­day’s mo­bile life­style, the Galaxy S7 edge does just that by lead­ing the in­dus­try with a unique mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ence that fea­tures a re­fined de­sign, higher- qual­ity cam­era, en­hanced soft­ware func­tion­al­ity and un­sur­passed con­nec­tiv­ity to a galaxy of ser­vices, prod­ucts and ex­pe­ri­ences.

In ad­di­tion, Sam­sung’s lat­est flag­ship de­vice mar­ries sleek de­sign with pow­er­ful per­for­mance so users can do even more, faster and eas­ier.

Here are seven rea­sons the Galaxy S7 edge is the most an­tic­i­pated smart­phone yet.

High- qual­ity im­ages, no mat­ter the time of day or lo­ca­tion

The most raved about new fea­tures of Sam­sung’s Galaxy S line- up are its new cam­era ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

As the first smart­phone to ap­ply Dual Pixel tech­nol­ogy, the de­vice is able to cap­ture high- qual­ity im­ages in low- light en­vi­ron­ments, while a large F1.7 aper­ture en­sures brighter, sharper pho­to­graphs.

New Mo­tion Panorama and Selfie Flash func­tions let users have an en­tirely new phone­tog­ra­phy ex­pe­ri­ence.

Re­fined de­sign, sleek curves

While preserving the de­sign her­itage of its pre­de­ces­sor, the Galaxy S7 edge boasts an even more seam­less con­nec­tion be­tween its glass and metal ma­te­ri­als, along with a slim­mer rear cam­era.

Thanks to the curvy form of the de­vice’s glass, this model pro­vides an even bet­ter grip and nat­u­rally fits in one hand. And, bring­ing back the mi­croSD slot, the new flag­ship smart­phone is more func­tional than ever.

Wa­ter and dust re­sis­tance

For peo­ple who work, travel and play in all kinds of lo­ca­tions and en­vi­ron­ments, the up­graded IP68 wa­ter and dust re­sis­tance of the de­vice is es­pe­cially well re­ceived.

As the pre­mium stan­dard of pro­tec­tion against wa­ter and dust, the fea­ture al­lows users to en­joy the sleek, curvy de­sign of Sam­sung’s lat­est flag­ship smart­phone with­out the in­con­ve­nience of a bulky ad­di­tional case.

Made for gam­ing

With the op­ti­mised hard­ware and en­hanced user ex­pe­ri­ence, which al­low for smoother graph­ics and longer play­ing times, Sam­sung’s new smart­phone can sat­isfy even the most de­mand­ing mo­bile gamer.

With the new Game Launcher app, users now have the abil­ity to take con­trol of their mo­bile gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with nu­mer­ous cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions.

Abun­dant photo and video stor­age

Th­ese days, users are al­ways on the go and store abun­dant apps, mu­sic and files on their smart­phones.

Con­ve­niently em­bed­ded in the Galaxy S7 edge, the hy­brid SIM card tray al­lows users to ei­ther insert two SIM cards or opt for only one SIM card paired with a mi­croSD card for up to 200GB of ad­di­tional stor­age.

Sim­ple and soft user ex­pe­ri­ence

Cus­tomis­able lock and home screens, beautified icons and the user- friendly An­droid 6.0 Marsh­mal­low op­er­at­ing sys­tem have taken the user ex­pe­ri­ence of the new Galaxy smart­phone to an en­tirely new level.

The re­fined dual- edge screen of the Galaxy S7 edge pro­vides prac­ti­cal func­tions and eas­ier ac­cess to users’ fre­quently used

con­tent and tasks.

Longer us­age

Com­pared with its pre­de­ces­sor the Galaxy S6 edge’s 2,600mAh, the Galaxy S7 edge is equipped with an im­pres­sive 3,600mAh bat­tery ca­pac­ity, al­low­ing for more hours and higher screen bright­ness with­out drain­ing out bat­tery us­age within a day’s use.

In­ter­est­ingly, the Galaxy S7 edge also of­fers fastcharg­ing tech­nol­ogy, both wired and wire­lessly.

The Galaxy S7 edge is now avail­able in Malaysia.
