Just like the Galaxy S6, the S7 has a metal frame, combined with the latest-generation Gorilla Glass. This combination means the phone can take a beating.
What we also really like is that the device sits more comfortably in the hand than the Galaxy S6. The S7 has rounded corners and is that tiny bit thicker. This last aspect is not a disadvantage. It makes the phone less fragile.
Also interesting to know is that the S7 is completely water- and dust-proof. Something we missed in the previous version.
