With each generation, the Galaxy S models are a genius improvement from the last – from bigger HD screens and enhanced performance, to advanced camera features housed in an ever-refined stylish body. Samsung also made each successor progressively more polished and elegant, maintaining its premium outlook.
One of the most recognisable and successful smartphone series in this globally competitive market, the Galaxy S series is a heavy force towards greater development in the mobile industry. Each element of the phone has never been forgone for another, but rather a constant evolution of hardware, software and an ecosystem of supporting enhancements such as the Gear VR – inspired and designed with the user in mind.
Samsung manages to continuously remain a constant game changer which is why it is not a surprise that the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has already generated a lot of buzz, even before its official launch in Malaysia.
