Pretty cool starting this thread. I look forward to seeing posts. BTW, I never knew that the Samsung code name for the S7 Edge is Samsung Hero 2.

So far the S7E is as good as the Note 5.  I can say the S7E is performing better at weak signals where my Note 5 or S6 would not have data connectivity.

 

On the RF department, the S7E and Note 5 is at around the same RSRP consistently but I find the S7E to pull in faster speeds with weaker signals.

RSPR -109 pulling easy 50Mbps+.  This test was done 3/4 in a neighbourhood with many Boost customers.

Super nice! did your note 5 ever pull speeds like this with such high RSPR'?

Hey guys, I saw this page about Qualcomm's TruSignal feature with the Snapdragon 820. Have you guys noticed better RF performance overall with the s7?

I rarely see 50Mbps on my Note 5 with RSRP around -109 in San Diego market.  I have never seen 100Mbps+ on my Note 5 in So-Cal period.

 

With a weak RSRP on my S7E, I am pulling easy 50Mbps+.  I can confidently say my S7E is a speed beast.  The RF between the Note 5 and S7E are very similar.

 

Test I just did moments ago picking up Pizza for my kids.  This site I have only seen max 90Mbps on my Note 5 with very good signal.

 

On my S7E with RSPR of -90.

That's good to see, since the Note 5 already has some really good RF's

With 600mah more, more efficient chip and screen I would hope so. Could you maybe get a on screen time test one day. From 100% to about 5% with no charging?

It'll still vary dramatically depending on what apps he runs, foreground and background, whether it's good or bad LTE or wifi signal, etc. There have been reports of 7-8 hours with undocumented usage.

I run both Yahoo and ESPN sports alerts, tapatalk alerts, signal check pro widget, 3 diff email clients including that dog Yahoo mail (word is that ymail may roll into gmail finally), usually 1 or 2 web browsers, weather underground widget, intellicast tray temp and wx, if I'm driving add Pandora interfaced to my alpine truck radio via Bluetooth, waze, and google maps. Twitter is constantly pulling alerts as is fb and periodically fb messenger and texts. If I'm documenting towers, I'm also running google earth with a tower map kml overlay, and a spreadsheet with tower data.

Plus bloatware I can't permanently disable like google messenger"hangouts", and sprint zone.

I'm constantly shuffling and killing apps on my gs4 to keep it running so that's why I want to get my paws on s7 so badly.

I've long outgrown the s4t for what I do and managing memory / apps manually has lost its charm.

Since the S7 and S7E are the first (from what i can tell) to support 3xCA on B41 i wonder when users will start to see it being deployed and what sort of speeds are possible!

 

also like the 2xCA on B25 as well very interested in that.

Bro, people are reporting 7 hours of screen on time that's mind blowing!
