Words of advice - if you are considering changing from IPhone to Samsung, DON'T DO IT! After reading reviews and watching comparison videos, I was kinda sold on giving Samsung a try, however, 1 week after switching I'm really considering changing back (although a huge pain in the arse.)
Basically all the reviews said the new Samsung is superior in every way, well that's a total load of crap. Issues I've had so far:
1.I constantly have to keep connecting to my work wifi (and not just pressing the wifi icon, I actually have to go into settings and keep connecting)
2.Set my email to sync every 15mins - it's 3pm and it hasn't synced since 10.30am
3.Sending and receiving email is way slower than IPhone
4.Takes longer for apps to load than an IPhone
5.I hope you don't want reminder alarms to work
6.Battery life sux! I have to keep it on powersave mode at all times
7.Annoying popups - one of the cool things was supposed to be able to customize the phone more...that's if you can stand all the popups!
8.Trying to backup the phone was a whole other ordeal
What I was most concerned about with the switchover was how long it would take to navigate my way around the different operating system, that actually turned out to be a non-issue, and was very easy to get used to. However, the only positive feedback I have about the Samsung S7 is the screen is pretty awesome and the photos turn out great. But functionality wise IPhone poops all over the Samsung!
