    Not sure i like the sound of always on screens, isnt that a battery killer? Its not like they are e-ink screens that use very little power to display a static image.

    They're AMOLED so if you're just displaying a small bit of text with the time then it hardly uses any. All the dark area uses nothing.

    It's basically what other phones including my OPX have had for a while - the option of displaying stuff on the lockscreen. It'll be purely optional of course.

    Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are water resistant, add microSD

    I have my current Nexus 5 and my (now boxed) One Plus X to sell....should hopefully get me around £250-275 when sold. If I can sell the Gear VR that comes with it for ~ £60 as brand new unboxed, should cost me around £240 to upgrade from my Nexus 5 all in. Tempting.

    Edit: Less than 70mm width....hallelujah!

    no option to buy 2 .. what a shame .. silly really wanted one for me one for the wife ..
    not going thru everything twice ..
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true

    I suspect this is the moment when I know that I got old. I no longer care to upgrade every iteration (and haven't since my S4), and likely won't this time.

    I've an S6 for work, but it's not exactly selling itself as an upgrade from my S4.

    Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are water resistant, add microSD

    Looks nice and definitely addresses most of my massive gripes about the S6, namely shocking lack of battery life. But as others have said I'm losing the need/want to upgrade with every iteration. Having been disappointed with both the S6 and the 6P neither of which I see as being better than my Z3.

    Looks like a decent phone... removable battery though???

    That said I think the days of flagship phones are dead. When you can get a quad core 13mp camera with removable battery, dual sim and a micro SD for ~£99-130 why pay more?
