Work Performance : PCMark

We tested the Galaxy S7 edge‘s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.

Web Browsing 6908 5751 6788
Video Playback 3218 4536 3091
Writing 4629 5270 5918
Photo Editing 5563 8400 5357

Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Amazon) was not so hot in PCMark. It was slightly faster than its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (Amazon) in Web Browsing, Video Playback and Photo Editing, but it was significantly slower in Writing. In fact, it was much slower than the Intel Atom-powered ASUS ZenFone Zoom (Amazon) we reviewed recently, in all but web browsing.


Overall Performance : AnTuTu Benchmark

AnTuTu is a nice benchmark for testing various performance aspects of Android devices.

– CPU Multi-Core 15176 9215 9994
RAM 9775 4594 5176

There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Amazon) is a gaming king. It was practically twice as fast as its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 edge (Amazon) in 3D performance and user experience (UX) scores! It was also much faster in CPU and memory performance.


Gaming Performance : 3DMark

We tested the Galaxy S7 edge’s gaming performance using 3DMark, using the Ice Storm Unlimited test.

Graphics Test 2 133.1 fps 81.5 fps 87.3 fps
Physics Test 59.7 fps 64.0 fps 50.9 fps

There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Amazon) is an astoundingly fast smartphone for 3D games. It proved to be 35% faster than its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 edge (Amazon), which is itself a very fast smartphone for games. The Galaxy S7 edge will take any 3D game thrown at it and then some.

    Please do not buy Samsung S7. I have been facing problem daily at least once the phone getting OFF for at least 10 minutes.
    Since I lost the bill, the shop keeper is not receiving for repair or replacement. I have incurred a big loss buying the Samsung S7 cell phone.

      It seems that you may have a defective unit.

      Even if you lost the receipt, you can still try to claim support from Samsung directly. After all, the Galaxy S7 is less than a year-old.
