The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a phone that came with some amazing specs when it got released a few years ago. It’s still a good phone for a lower price so why not have a look at what it came with.
Main specs: 5.1 inch Display, 1440×2560 pixels screen, Gorilla Glass 4 screen protection, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Exynos 8890 Octa Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4×2.3GHz cores and 4×1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores, Mali-T880 MP12 GPU, 12MP Primary camera, 5MP Secondary camera and 3000mAh Battery!
Then what this device has is a home button and glass back. Just as the Galaxy S6 had. But this one came with rounded back sides. This gave the phone a bit more premium feel. There is no fingerprint sensor on rear side as we see on new phones. In S7 it’s mounted inside the home button.
This is also a phone that comes featured with IP68 certification. Which means you can use it under water. This was something the Galaxy S5 also had but Samsung removed it with the Galaxy S6. But brought it back with S7.
This phone comes with super low weight of just 152 grams. It’s using Nano SIM size. Very thin phone too just 7.9mm in thickness. The Bluetooth edition it’s running with is Bluetooth 4.2. Now 2018 we are starting to see more smartphones coming out with latest Bluetooth 5.0 which will make sound so much better when you listen with wireless earphones.
You get cool things like always-on display with this phone and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. Samsung has renamed their UI in the Galaxy S8. This phone comes with microUSB 2.0 connector. 2018 we will see most Android phones come out with Type-C charge connector.
You probably should invest in a case if you get this phone. Since the back glass may break if you accidentally drop the device without a case.

Kyocera has a new smartphone. This is a budget variant. It’s called the DuraForce Pro E6820! This is a durable smartphone. Let’s dive into the specs.
Main specs: 5.0 Inch Display, IPS screen type, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Snapdragon 617 Chipset, Octa-core processor 4x 1.5GHz clock speed Cortex-A53 and 4×1.2GHz clock speed Cortex-A53, Adreno 405 GPU, microSD card extend up to 256GB, 32GB Internal storage, 3GB of RAM, Dual 13MP Rear camera, 5MP Front facing camera and 3240mAh Battery!
But the main thing I love the most about this phone is the well built design and that it comes with IP68 certification. This makes so it has dust and water proof, 1.5 meter under water for 30 minutes! Then it comes with MIL-STD-810G compliance with salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock resistance. So it’s a smartphone that is built to last a long time! Reminds me about Samsung’s Galaxy Active devices in terms of design.
The SIM card size you use in this phone is Nano SIM. Which is the smallest variant for now. The weight is pretty heavy for a nice feel in hand, it’s 230 grams heavy. This is a phone that comes with the old microUSB 2.0 connector. In battery charge you get Quick Charge 2.0. It’s nice to see it’s using Bluetooth 4.2 instead of just 4.0.
On the front side of the smartphone you get a fingerprint sensor mounted. I wish the battery was removable. To bring a spare battery out in the woods would be a great feature. Something few phones offer these days.
DuraForce Pro still packs 3.5mm audio jack. That comes with active noise cancellation with dedicated mic. It’s only available in a Black colour. The battery will last for up to 480 hours over 3G in standby and 19 hours talk time over 3G. It’s strange how it doesn’t come with an FM Radio app.
