Samsung's newest members of its flagship Galaxy phone family are now on sale. The S7 and S7 Edge aren't gigantic leaps over the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but they pack enough features to make them worthy of the name. You'll find a better camera and a massively bigger battery and such non-iPhone features as expandable storage (it's back!) and wireless charging.
