It doesn’t look as innovative as the Galaxy S7 Side with its bent display screen, yet this variation is a lot more small than the Galaxy S6 Side+. As well as it may be the last flat Samsung front runner, as new Samsung Galaxy S8 reports indicate designs that only deal curves.

Our largest issues with this phone are the high rate and also the truth there’s only one storage option. Don’t stress too a lot. You can constantly acquire a microSD card, up to 200GB, as well as obtain a little bit of added room.
