The top 5 reasons not to buy a Samsung Galaxy S7
You're watching this video because you're desperately looking for a reason not to purchase the new Samsung Galaxy S7.
It's even an awesome phone, so how can you resist it?
Let me tell you what, I'll give you the top five reasons not to purchase the Galaxy S7 right Now.
At number give, you're a megapixel snob.
The Galaxy S6 packing a 16 megapixel camera.
The Galaxy S7 dropped to 12 megapixels.
After consulting my calculator app, that's a difference of four whole megapixels.
In cnet's test the X7 with it's wimpy 12 megapixel camera took better photos than the mighty 16 megapixel S6 camera, but you don't care about that because you're a snob.
At number four no removable battery.
If your life revolves around swapping batteries in and out of cell phones.
Forget the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Sure, Samsung gave the S7 a micro-SD card slot, and water resistance, but the battery is encased within it's phone.
Tsk, tsk Samsung.
At number three, the competition is crazy this year.
Have you taken a look at the playing field?
Check out the LG G5.
It's like a frigging transformer.
It's got an expansion slot so the phone could do more things than just be a phone.
Yeah, then there's that whole new iPhone thing.
At number two, it's not a Nexus.
The two Nexus phones out right now are pretty impressive, both the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X are reasonably priced.
They also enjoy a nice software advantage.
Nexus phones get the latest version of Android first.
None of that waiting around for carrier approval or some other nonsense.
Before we get to number one.
Let's talk about some reasons to buy the S7.
CNET editor Jessica Dolcourt said the S7 is the best all-around phone out there, better even than the excellent Google Nexus 6p and the iPhone 6s.
The S7 is also an editor's choice.
And at number one.
You've already got an S6 or a Note 5.
The Samsung Galaxy SM is a great phone but so is the Galaxy S6 and the Note 5. If you've got either one of those phones an upgrade isn't really necessary right now.
If you don't need expandable storage or you're able to keep your phone dry, stick with your S6 or Note 5.
If you thought I made up that list because I hate Samsung.
you're totally wrong.
I think they're the bee's knees and the cat's pajamas.
