What are the differences between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge?

The curved screen made famous by its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 Edge, is just one of the differences between the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.


There are many similarities between the models including the colours they’re sold in, both have a MicroSD slot, fingerprint sensor and storage capacity to name a few.


Let’s take a closer look at the differences:


Size and weight

The Galaxy S7 Edge has a screen that is 16% bigger than the Galaxy S7. It is overall a bigger phone, weighing in at 157g compared to the Galaxy S7′s 152g.



Galaxy S7 – 142 mm x 70 mm x 7.9 mm

Galaxy S7 Edge – 151 mm x 73 mm x 7.7 mm



Due to the larger display the Galaxy S7 Edge does offer a slightly more powerful battery.
