[Update: New Seller] Deal Alert: Unlocked International Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge On Sale For $699.99 Via eBay

It's Galaxy S7 day, meaning your local carrier store is probably packed with people trying to get one of Samsung's latest devices before the first batch sells out. You don't have to brave the crowds, though. The unlocked Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935F) is on eBay already for $700. That's about $200 less than the full retail price of the unlocked device and $100 cheaper than the carrier-locked versions.

Making It Mine: Galaxy S7 Edge (Video)

Gather ‘round, gather ‘round! The time has come to answer the age old question: What’s on your phone? I get this question A LOT, but I don’t answer it often since it changes so much. I thought I’d take a bit of a spin on it and also show you what I did to make a particular device (in this case the S7 Edge) really feel like my own. I’m convinced there’s a metric here. For now, I’ll call it the ‘make it work’ factor. This comes from my days living in NYC.

Every apartment has a ‘make it work’ factor.

Samsung's 'Good Lock' App Brings A Crazy Alternative UI To Your GS7's Lock Screen, Notifications, And Quick Settings

The design of Samsung's system UI hasn't changed much in the last few years, except when it comes to cosmetic things like icons and colors. There's a whole theme store that can alter that stuff. In the Galaxy Apps store, there's a new app called Good Lock that goes further by enabling an "advanced system UI" on the Galaxy S7. It's really bonkers.

Verizon Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge Get Minor OTA Updates Addressing Connectivity Issues

Smartphones do many things, but underpinning most of what makes these phones smart is an Internet connection. Struggling to connect to Wi-Fi makes a phone significantly less intelligent.

Some Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners have had trouble maintaining an Internet connection. Others have had a difficult time establishing a connection in the first place.

[Get Off My Lawn] Six Flags Made A Roller Coaster With A Built-In Gear VR Headset Game, Because Roller Coasters Aren't Cool Enough Any More

At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeonly old man who can't get any enjoyment out of life (which is normally David's job), I'm going to suggest that maybe roller coasters don't need technological add-ons in order to appeal to people. After all, they're roller coasters, gigantic masterpieces of engineering and physics that exist primarily for the purpose of entertainment, and secondarily for the purpose of making you empty your stomach of ill-advised theme park corn dogs. Do they really need to be tied into the never-ending cycle of incremental upgrades and improvements that typifies mobile technology?

Maybe It's Time To Stop Letting DxOMark Decide Whose Smartphone Camera Is "Best" (Opinion)

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has the best mobile camera according to image and video quality testing firm DxO Labs, with an overall score of 88 points out of 100. It received a 90 in exposure and contrast, an 83 in color, a 94 in autofocus, 91 in texture, 89 in noise, 79 in artifacts, and 86 in flash. This all sounds very official. And we see DxO scores increasingly cited and posted as news around the internet because of that absolute, highly-comparable set of values they provide (Android Police has posted such stories - you'll get no argument from me). We did not, however, post an item about DxO's leaderboard-topping score for the S7.

dbrand's New Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge Skins Protect Your Phone From Fingerprints, Slips, And Scatches [Sponsored Post]

Samsung's latest flagship brothers are a lot of things: high-end, beautifully crafted, powerful, and expensive. What they are not though is drop-proof, scratch-proof, or fingerprint-proof. You surely don't want your investment of several hundreds of dollars to slip between your fingers and risk splattering on the floor only because your hand was a little too sweaty or your grip wasn't perfectly tight. You probably don't want it to get scratched from lint and other small particles inside your pocket or purse either.

If you nodded in agreement to the above statements, then you should be in the market for the Galaxy S7 skins from dbrand, well that or the S7 Edge skins if you're carrying the larger brother.

AT&T Is Offering The Samsung Galaxy S7 For $0 Down And Free Shipping [Sponsored Post]

OK, so you want a Samsung Galaxy S7. That makes sense — it's looks like a solid phone. The 5.1-inch display is a great size for the many users out there who may not be interested in carrying a nearly-tablet-sized phone, and its Quad HD resolution keeps everything on-screen super sharp. Seriously — it's something like 576 pixels-per-inch.

And all that goes without talking about what's under the hood: a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 820 and whopping 4GB of RAM. Pair that with expandable storage, wireless charging, and IP68 water-resistance, and this is a phone that has a lot going for it. It's almost like Samsung took all the things people liked about the older Galaxy phones and put them all into one phone.
