    • Liam

      Samsung s7. As we’ve seen the camera quality of s6 and s6+. I thing samsung wil be far more better than apple in camera quality

  5. Maplekoya

    My goodness, S6 struggles to run games at 1440 and you’re bumping it up to 4k? At this rate it’s going to be near impossible to play Japanese mobile games on Android flagship phones unless they allow us to change the resolution in the settings.

    I am a Samsung/Android fan! I have the Note 4 but it has its major flaws like qwerty board freezes up phone completely shuts off, my major issue is my phone charger and phone overheating (my phone does not necessarily have to be charging to overheat either)…hope to see improvement in these areas. Also my fast charge isn’t always a reliable thing to count on.

    Huge Samsung fan and have been since the first Galaxy series. However, I have noticed the Samsung phones get glichy and slow down after a couple of years were as the iPhone is still running strong. Will there be solutions to this in the new year?

    • Patricia

      I understand that the problems could be the apps you download, they could have viruses that can cause your phone to slow down, Freeze up, or have many issues. You should be careful on what you download. As for the apps from Apple, they are carefully selected by Apple as to which they allow to be on this list of downloads. You should try doing a hard reset on your Samsung and then see how it runs. Good luck!

    I’ve been reading on other sites that Samsung is planning to release the S7 at a lower price than the current S6 model. This article is suggesting just the opposite. Any intel on this?
