Waterproof

Or should we say water-resistant? Either way, the Galaxy S7 was one of the first handsets to gain an IP68 rating - which means it’ll survive being immersed in up to five feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Dropping it in the bath or being thrown in a pool fully clothed won’t be a problem anymore!

An IP68 rating also means that the phone is protected from dust, dirt and sand - and it won’t get all scratched if put in your pocket with a set of keys. You might even feel brave enough to bypass a protection cover.

Always-On Display

Samsung’s displays have always been pretty fantastic, but the company really stepped it up with the Galaxy S7. (And let’s not even mention the S7 Edge’s edge-to-edge display.)

But what’s really amazing this time is the introduction of a new ‘Always-On’ feature. When the handset is locked, the (black) screen will still display certain types of information, like the time and date, battery level, and notifications - all without draining the battery.

The Best Camera Ever

Less is more - at least when it comes to megapixels. Samsung downgraded from the 16MP camera found on the Galaxy S6 to a brand new 12MP snapper. It doesn’t mean you’re losing on picture quality, however!

The camera’s performance in low light is super impressive, as is its speed: it features a dual-pixel sensor, which gives it incredibly fast autofocus. Pictures appear clear, bright, and sharp, and the wider lens allows you to take larger photos without having to resort to panorama mode.
