The attention of most these days is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8+, pushing aside the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. While the newer model is expectedly drawing attention, totally overtaking the S7 Edge may not be an easy thing to do for many reasons.

Recall that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge stood out as the best phablet-like device to get when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 bombed out, The Verge reported. It stepped up and became the ideal device to get, filling in the hole of a traditional tablet that last came with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

As the Samsung Galaxy S8 series slowly creeps into its official release, others are keeping tabs on the price of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The SRP is expected to drop for some carriers and retailers, big discounts that should apply to the remaining pieces out in the market. So the question now is should you get it over the Galaxy S8 or S8+?

The buying decision will eventually depend on what a consumer would be looking for. Though blessed with new specs, the fact remains that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge packed a lot of impressive features that should suffice for now. Hence, the only thing that could stand out is that the S8 series is the latest one in the market, something that will expectedly be priced beyond budgets.

One issue that Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge current and future owners may be wary about is the Android Nougat issues occurring as of late. According to Android Headlines, some Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge users in the U.S. are experiencing issues plaguing the camera app, LED notification lights malfunctioning and some unable to make calls.

Android Nougat 7.0 for the Samsung Galaxy S7 is rolling out just now after it was originally scheduled to come out several months ago. After emerging last January, China users have been encountering problems as well. There is no word yet if another round of halts is forthcoming with Samsung expected to look into the complaints.
