People who are gadget freaks cannot wait for this new device to hit the markets. To help them prepare for the arrival of Samsung’s incoming flagship phone.

We have gotten ahead of this to put together bits of information believed to be the most consistent of all theories surrounding the “S7” Smart-phone.


Release date


According to the news released online, the launch date is most possibly on the February 21, 2016.  However, the company’s previous release dates are the truest indication of when the Galaxy S7 will be released. 
Aside from the S3, the Galaxy smartphones have all been launched in April – S4, April 11 , Saturday; S5, April 27; and Galaxy S6 Friday, April 10.  Following the trend, there is high probability we will see the phone around April 8, or April 15.Unfortunately, Samsung is yet to confirm details.

New Features

As expected, the Samsung S7 will have new features including: a quad-core Snapdragon 820 at its heart, bringing with it Qualcomm’s new Kryo processor; the famous fast-charging USB-C that is taking the mobile world by storm; Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, which brings a host of upgrades including Android Pay, improved app permissions, standardized fingerprint support, battery life improvements and so much more.

Design

In terms of design, the Galaxy S7 should be aesthetically similar to the Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S7 is expected to have a 5.1 inch SUPER AMOLED 4K display and the Galaxy S7 edge, a 5.5 inch curved display, each with a slick design (7.9 mm) made of superior quality metal. 

Both these smartphone will also feature a pressure-sensitive display, similar to what Apple’s iPhone 6s series offers with its 3D-Touch screens.  

Cost

While no one is exactly sure how it will mark up in stores until the official announcement, However, a good starting point would be a mark above the current sales price for the S6.
It is no secret that the Samsung galaxy S series are high-end android phone and again smart phone pricing naturally increases over time anyway, so somewhere north of N180,000 for the S7 would not be a big surprise.

Generally, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will have the most advanced specification and features, as well as a powerful hardware.

But unlike BlackBerry phones where you can subscribe to BIS and use it to browse the internet. Android devices rely on available internet data on or wifi connection to surf the web. But because of many services and or apps that depends on data to run either foreground or background made volume of data consumption on android devices very high. I can bet my last dollar that a 50 megabytes of data wont last a day if you're addicted or adapted to the internet. But there is workarounds or tips you can implement to be off the hook of wasting your money on data plan to browse.

1. RESTRICT BACKGROUND DATA FOR APPS

App will run in the background to check for updates, refresh and do all sort of unconcerned processes that will suck up all your data in a blink of eye, does that worth wasting of data over? This how to restrict apps from running in the background. Head over to settings>data usage>scroll down to select the app>click on it and mark restrict background data>press ok to
confirm your selection..

DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATE APPS
By default settings any apps you installed on you devices has been set to automatically update and this process will consume lotta data. You can disable this in Play settings go to playstore>tap the menu button>click on settings>unchecked auto-update apps>

3. LIMIT BACKGROUND PROCESSES
You can also limit the amount of background processes your phone can carry out, there by reduce the amount of meg. Consume when apps is running in the background. Go to settings>developer
options>scroll down under apps tab, then click
on background process limit>then select your
desired process limit.

4. OFF YOUR DATA WHEN YOU DONT USE IT
You dont need to turn on your data when you dont use it, dont leave it for the tiger apps that love to kill and eat data to do their cruel work. Always turn it off when you dont use it!

5. USE BETTER BROWSER AND CHANGE BROWSER SETTINGS TO SAVE DATA
