About Samsung Galaxy S7 - What you should know

Camera: Compared to GS6's 16-megapixel shooter, Galaxy S7 Edge has a lower-megapixel camera to keep the sensor the same size. But Samsung says the Galaxy S7 takes better photos in low light thanks to its large f/1.7 aperture lens.

Photos: Samsung is also getting into motion -- think iPhone 6S' Live Photos -- with two new features: Motion photo, this takes photos of moving subjects and enables you to scrub along the video to choose a still. Motion panorama, it takes a still shot of your scene.

OS: The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are running Android Marshmallow 6.0, with a bit of TouchWiz on top.

Waterproof: Now, the S7 and S7 edge gain an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. This doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to go swimming with your S7 in-hand, but it does mean that it will stay safe from those accidental drops.
