Samsung S7 edge
First and foremost, I thought the box was stylish yet uninteresting. Sophisticated because the metallic writing was stunning and eye-catching, but that was it. The font was the star of the show, I know the main price is inside, but for such a beautiful product; why not showcase it in a better box? In addition to this, when it came to opening the box the magnetic feature was satisfying and clever. I thought this added a high-end aspect, which I would hope for since the phone is worth £500.
From working in a phone shop, I have seen many Samsung S7 edges, but I have never seen a pink gold one; until I unveiled mine. When I saw my phone, I was stunned! I know it’s just a phone, but this was going to be my baby for a while, (until the s8 comes out), but it’s still going to be mine as a work phone! Samsung really nailed the colours-schemes for the s7! See I’m not a fan of pink, but this isn’t IN YOUR FACE PINK. It’s delicate and captivating.
As I peeled the plastic sheets off the phone, I was met with a blinding shine! It’s rose gold heaven! And actually, ROSE GOLD! Not pink … Apple need to up their game in regards to their rose “rose gold” phone. In contrast to this, I thought the size was perfect, not too big and not too small. In compassion to my last phone, Sony Z5 premium it’s a walk in the park! I can actually hold this phone without my hand cramping. Also, I find the phone easier to hold because of the curve, with the Sony Z5 premium, it was so hard I thought I was going to drop it, and because I like taking pictures, it was near enough impossible unless you have gigantic hands. On the other hand, just like most phone companies, Samsung provides you with a charger and earphones. But not just any charger, a fast charger! Which I love! They also give you a usb adapter for transferring your old phone data to your new phone.
Last and certainly not least, I love that Samsung haven’t plastered their brand name all over the phone, it’s on the back of the phone, and on the top (but in very small font). I find that having the brand name all over the place in big letters … Tacky. Might sound silly, but that’s just my opinion.
Overall, I find that it looks like a beautiful phone, even before using it.
Setting it up:
In regards to setting this phone up, it wasn’t hard in the slightest. If you are used to any Android phone, this will be simple for you. All you have to do is follow the prompts and insert the information they require. For example, a passcode and fingerprint set-up. Also in regards to unlocking your phone with the fingerprint, it’s very fast (when it works). There are times when it won’t recognise my finger, but that happens very rare; but that happens with so many other devices, Apple included… I would know I own an iPad Pro.
On the other hand, doing a data transfer is easy, Samsung actually provides you with a usb adapter which you plug into your own phone, and with that your contacts and pictures are on your new phone. In my perspective, I don’t like doing that, simply because if I have a new phone I want to start a fresh, plus there were people who had my previous number which I don’t want to have.
In conclusion, my first impression with this product is extremely high! I’ve now used the phone for a couple of weeks, as mentioned previously, and I love it very much. It’s super quick and easy to use. So much better than Apple.
