Ever since the release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 last spring, everyone has been questioning about its successor the S7 and if it would bring back features that were omitted out of the last design. It looks like Samsung listened to the feedback and the return of expandable storage is here and while removable battery isn’t back(and it’s not needed), they have upped the battery capacity extremely on both models of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

Also big changes are in the camera department as Samsung is introducing a Dual Pixel 12MP camera. It will have a brighter lens with wider aperture and bigger pixel. Autofocus will be better for lowlight shots and also a faster shutter speed.
