Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge now available for pre-order

galaxys7s7edgepair

Right on schedule, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are now available for pre-order. The Galaxy S7 is available in Black Onyx and Gold Platinum, while the Galaxy S7 edge is available in Black Onyx, Gold Platinum, and Silver Titanium. Only the 32GB versions are available, but you can add more storage using the microSD slots found on the GS7 and GS7 edge.

Here’s how the pricing for the two phones breaks down:

Samsung Galaxy S7

  • EIP: $0 down, 23 payments of $27.92, 1 payment of $27.83 ($669.99 full retail)
  • JUMP! On Demand: $0 upfront and $28 per month

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

  • EIP: $0 down, 23 payments of $32.50, 1 payment of $32.39 ($779.99 full retail)
  • JUMP! On Demand: $0 upfront and $32.50 per month

T-Mobile is currently listing both phones as shipping by March 10.

If you do decide to pre-order, you’ll get some gifts with your shiny new phone. They include a Samsung Gear VR headset, six VR games to play on your new headset, and a free year of Netflix. To get your VR headset and games, you’ll need to fill out a claim form and upload your receipt to Samsung. It’s estimated that you’ll get your headset and games four to six weeks after Samsung verifies your purchase. Meanwhile, the free year of Netflix will be gifted to you as a code good for a one-year subscription to the two stream plan.

One other detail worth noting is that if you’re still on the fence about buying a phone that you’ve never actually seen in person, T-Mobile has said that it plans to get demo Galaxy S7 and S7 edge units in stores ahead of the official launch. There’s no exact in-store demo date available yet, but T-Mo has said that it will share more details when they’re available. Until then, you can check out a hands-on video showing the Galaxy S7 below.

So, who’s going to pre-order a new Galaxy? If you are, which model will you be getting?

  • GS7 Edge pre-0rder Attained! now to waaaiitt two weeks…. #datBatteryTho

    • jonathan3579

      I’m on hold as I type this… And it’s up to a 22 minute hold. :(

    • MattPortland

      I’m waiting to see what Costco has going on with these phones.

  • Brian

    I want to pre-order this as I still have the S5. I want to use my JUMP to do so as I am still under the old program. I then want to cancel that and switch to JOD like everyone else. Anyone do this yet and have any insight?

    • johnny_fy

      I switched to JOD and I had to pay the current device off in full. If you have the S5 now I wouldn’t jump to anything else just go directly to the S7 with JOD as you should be pretty much paid off with the S5.

      • Brian

        So your saying just cancel the $10 a month JUMP and just switch and pay the balance? Will I thin be on JOD? It sucks because I paid that $10 for so long and never used it for anything. Never again.

        • Phil

          Exactly, use JOD if your device is paid off or almost paid off. 0 down every time you upgrade with no taxes 3 times per year. Taxes get added to your device payment per month. Just make sure you get the insurance cause JOD has a fee of 250 if damaged. Ex… 250 cracked screen and 250 liquid damage. Insurance is very important with JOD.

        • Omar Astacio

          The insurance that costs $10 a month???? Think mine was $9 and going up to $10. Might be worth keeping the Jump if that is the case. Worth looking into anyway.

        • Hoggles

          Hey Phil…. I just got the S7 edge, w/JOD. I didn’t get the insurance yet, as I wanted to do a little more research first.

          I’m wondering if going the SquareTrade route might me a cheaper insurance option….and would it pass the JOD inspection, if for say you had a cracked screen repaired at an authorized repair shop.

          I just wonder if the person checking the phone for a JOD swap, would know or care if it’s been repaired.

          This is my main question. I just don’t want to pay $33 + $10 each month for the S7 edge.

          Ouch.

        • Ben

          Just get Samsung protection directly from Samsung. $99 for Gs7 and $129 for Gs7 Edge $79 deductibles.

        • skywalkr2

          Much better than the asinine $180 deductibles with TMO insurance.

    • Lastofda87™

      As a word of advice, I wouldn’t consider getting rid of the old/original jump plan. Where you can upgrade every 6 months, and they pay off the device. I still have it grandfathered in, and know others who wish they had it vs the new JOD crap. I am jumping from my S6 Edge, and they will pay off the remaining 435. Now if you have completely paid of the S5, then I’d just sell the S5/ But I wouldn’t give up the old jump man.

      • Brian

        Yeah but that means I am essentially paying $10 (soon to be $12) extra month

        • Lastofda87™

          Yea I hear ya, I wasn’t trilled about it either, but in terms of over all value, and if I can afford the $2 extra a month, i looked at it based off of how it impacts me. So I’d guess you have to do the same, but in 6 months ill be back with the Note 6, so to me its a trade off cause Ill always have that balance paid off vs having to pay it off myself.

        • Dave Bell

          I have the original Jump too like you. Aside from having to pay off my EIP to move to JOD, what benefits does JOD offer over our original Jump?

        • skywalkr2

          the biggest benefit is not being forced to pay $10 a month for insurance that is absolutely horrible.

      • skywalkr2

        I literally do not have any clue why anyone still calls JOD crap. I got rid of original jump happily.

  • Kilroy672

    Just did the pre-order myself…GS7 Edge black. Now the waiting game begins. Maybe if we are lucky they will start shipping out early.

    • T-Mobile usually does send out pre-0rders Earlier than it’s street date, I Anticipate us having them in hand two to three days before March 11th.

      • MattPortland

        That wasn’t the case with the Note5. It came exactly on the the 21st of August. Luckily UPS got here at 10:15am. I have no patience.

  • Joe

    In order to upgrade a current line, you have to call into Tmobile to preorder. Dial 611 from your phone. I tried to do it through the website and it forced me to add a line. Used the chat thing and they said the website isn’t up to date yet that I must call in this request in order to get the preorder special.

  • Jose Lugo

    Pre-order done! woop woop S7 Edge in Platinum.

    • WhippetNYC

      I believe it is the Silver Titanium, not Platinum.

      • Jose Lugo

        I stand corrected! Thanks and good catch

    • MattPortland

      That’s what I’m getting. Twins!

  • Jose Lugo

    Just to add, I signed up on the t-mobile page to have updates on when these phone were going to be avail but i never got an email. Big thanks to Tmonews for the information!!!

  • Hoggles

    Waaaahooooooo!!!!

    Black S7 edge ordered, with Jump On Demand. Rep confirmed that the promo VR/Netflix deal is still valid if you go JOD.

    SUPER excited!

    One question for people with JOD. The rep said that insurance was not built into it and was an extra $12 per month. Ouch. I held off on getting insurance for now. I thought I read somewhere that insurance was built into the JOD deal? The scary scenario would be to damage the phone in a drop or something…then have it not be eligible for the JOD upgrade type thing. It would kind of ruin the On Demand premise. What did you guys do?

    Is that something I should be worried about?

    • Jimmy James

      Their website states it is $8. The old Jump! program had it built in. The new Jump! On Demand does not.

      • Hoggles

        Gotcha. Yeah, she told me it was an extra $12. Hmmmm.

        I wonder if SquareTrade is viable alternative to insurance. Say for instance I crack the screen and have it repaired via SquareTrade, would it then pass inspection when I went to swap it out for a Note 6. Or would Tmo say…..nope, sorry, not eligible for JOD upgrade.

        Hypothetically speaking of course :)

        Guess my other question would be…. Is the regular Jump program still available….and would it be better if I only want to upgrade once per year?

        • Jimmy James

          I just read that after March 1 it goes up to $10. Nowhere do I see $12.

        • Hoggles

          Guess she was a little off on the price. I need to call them back and ask about if the old Jump program is still an option and if it’s a little better for people who don’t want to upgrade 2-3 times per year….but just once per year.

          Hmmmm

        • Croq

          The insurance for the old Jump program goes to $12 a month and includes the pro features for the Lookout security app (they also have an option that has insurance and Pro, but no original Jump for the same price). JOD insurance goes to $10.

          If you don’t want/need theft/loss protection, then you could go with SquareTrade. Their coverage runs between $4 and $6 a month depending on how long you purchase. It covers drops, spills (probably not an issue with the S7) and malfunctions. You can cancel any of the plans at any time and get a pro-rated refund.

        • Hoggles

          Thanks for the info Croq!

        • alex

          make sure to have a good case to cover the drops..
          S7 now waterproof, less worries.

          manufactures warranty should cover all the malfunctions.

          make sure not to loose your phone…my biggest worry.

          i personally see no need for any coverage given i upgrade my phone every 4 months with JOD..

          JOD is amazing.

        • Hoggles

          I like your thinking! Yeah, I’ll definitely be getting a good case from day one.

          I don’t really see a downside to JOD, especially if you’re at all a little bit on the nerdy side of life :)

          Which I am.

        • NHL Counterpoint

          I use Squaretrade to insure my JOD phones. It’s great except no loss or theft coverage. When I do a JOD upgrade, just cancel the policy, get pro rated refund, and start a new policy on the new phone.

          As to a replacement if you file a claim with Squaretrade, if they replace it with a different phone, just call TMO and let them know and give them the new IMEI. Then you won’t have trouble when you want to trade that phone in for JOD upgrade.

    • Big Dawes…..

      how did you order? Online or in Store?

      I couldn’t do it on the phone?

      • Hoggles

        Over the phone. Super quick.

    • skywalkr2

      Don’t do insurance. Rip off.

  • vinnyjr

    Just ordered the S7 in Gold. Now I’m waiting for the UPS TRUCK. There he is, he’s here already. False alarm. Hahaha. Yep, the waiting begins. T-Mobile usually gets preorders out early. Thank You T-Mobile.

    • skywalkr2

      I thought the pictures of gold looks pretty good. However when I saw the s6 in gold in the store… i changed my mind.

  • Dark enV

    Congrats to those who got their preorders in. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge look like fantastic devices. I myself am an Apple guy but I can always appreciate other devices and their audiences. Hope you all enjoy your new devices.

    • skywalkr2

      Based on that response … no way you can be an apple fan /s

      • Dark enV

        Oh I definitely am. Pretty much everything I own is Apple. Apple TV, iPhone 6S Plus, iPad Air, Apple Watch, MacBook Pro Retina, Retina MacBook. I’m an Apple guy but I appreciate all tech. Apple suits me best but I certainly don’t hate on everyone for liking a device that fits them best.

        • MattPortland

          I think he’s being sarcastic because we see a lot of snide Apple/iPhone users around here.

        • Dark enV

          Yeah, figured he was. I’m just a fan of tech in general. Apple is just my preference and I certainly recommend Apple to a lot of people but if it’s not for them then I’m certainly not going to whine about it or tell them they’re crazy for not liking what I like. We have a lot of great options today. It all comes down to what suits you best.

  • Hoggles

    Did you guys opt for their fastest delivery? I was told it was the 3 day option….and it was an extra $15.

    • Philip

      Its free overnight when I do just now.

      • Hoggles

        Hmmmm…. I guess I’ll call back. Not sure why overnight wasn’t an option for me? Thanks for the info Philip :)

  • Hoggles

    JOD is kind of a nerds wet dream.

    I can’t believe I’m actually going to be getting a new phone every 6 months or so….hahahahaha.

    Oh what have I done…. lolz

    • alex

      JOD is heaven… new phone basically every 4 months… I fkkn love it :)

      • Hoggles

        So have you successfully done a JOD switchout for a new phone? Did it go smooth?

        • alex

          simple, and straight forward. i have done it in store..

          return old phone, get a new one.. plus, u get to keep the charger, box, phones…

        • Hoggles

          Fantastic! I love it when a plan comes together ;)

          Thanks Alex!

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    Where the heck is 64 GB model?

    • Cellphone Chris

      Not releasing in the US. 128GB cards are going for $44 on Amazon.

      • Hoggles

        Just make sure to get the latest U3 standard. Very important for handling 4k video properly.

        • Cellphone Chris

          The U3 ones are much more expensive – I’m more concerned with music libraries, so I’ll go the cheaper route.

        • JaswinderSinghJammu

          That’s exact reason why they should offer 64 GB and 128 GB because not everyone want to mess with SD cards and limitations on what you can move to the SD card.

        • Cellphone Chris

          Point taken, but the higher internal memories always seem to be a ripoff – ~$100 per 32GB?

      • Brian Richards

        But be aware that Samsung decided to disable the “adoptable storage” SD feature feature of Marshmallow.

        • Cellphone Chris

          Just means that SD cards will work the way we’re accustomed to, and they won’t appear as an expansion of the internal drive.

        • skywalkr2

          Which I think is better. Because you can then take you card out and put it into a computer without formatting.

  • Hoggles

    In case you guys haven’t seen the the best camera comparison post, you should definitely check this out.

    It’s a Russian site….but you’ll know from the first pic which one is the S7. The difference is night and day.

    https://hi-tech.mail.ru/news/samsung-galaxy-s7-lg-g5-camera-compare/

    S7 has a truly amazing camera. The one thing I was worried about with the focus on low light performance, was how was the detail going to be in good light? Thankfully….it looks like it is great in good light as well :)

  • guest

    Just to share, Best Buy is offering the VR, a 64GB card, and “$50 of VR content” with pre-order.

    • Cellphone Chris

      Except they don’t offer T-Mobile at Best Buy.

      • guest

        That doesn’t make sense, but you’re CORRECT. Sorry. :(

      • MattPortland

        I believe some do. They don’t in the Portland area here, but in Bakersfield they do. Or they did 3 years ago.

    • Philip

      Sams up the attie to include a $100 gc instead of mem card.

    • Andrew Morel

      But can you do a JUMP upgrade at Best Buy? I doubt it

  • rex2745

    If you don’t care about getting updates on your phone then by all means pre order but as for us galaxy s6 users we still haven’t got a marshmallow update and it feels like samsung took out the waterproof and micro sd just to put it back on the s7 for more sales never buying a samsung phone again the software gets slow and buggy after half a year wouldn’t recommend it im getting the iPhone 7 next just for ios since they support n constantly update ios unlike android

    • alex

      this is what JOD is for. upgrade to the greatest, the latest.

      • rex2745

        When i got my s6 I believe JOD didn’t exist

        • Hoggles

          It does now though :)

          I’m a flashoholic at XDA…. but I think I’m willing to give that up for getting a new flagship every 4-6 months.

          It will be weird not to root my phone in the first 2 minutes though….lol

          Oh well…I’m cool with that. Ads in games and apps will be the only thing that will be a bummer without my fave AdAway.

        • Andrew Morel

          You can still root your phone and return it for JUMP upgrades. I’ve done it many times in the past. They don’t look to see if KNOX is tripped. Just try to get the phone back on stock rom when you return it so no suspicions are raised.

    • Bryck

      Agreed.

  • Bryck

    It’s seems to be an awesome phone, probably superior to the IPhone. But for over $700 Buck’s, updates should be a must and frequent for at least two years. That’s where IOS will always be ahead of Android until Google’s figures something to do about it.

    • skywalkr2

      A phone with its original O/S is oftentimes much better than being forced into a new O/S version like Apple does.

  • J.J.

    Quick question. I’m new to JOD. I currently have a gs6+ as my first Jod device, and may preorder the s7 edge. Can someone briefly explain the process of preordering on Jod and when you have to return the old device? I like to connect both phones up and transfer data plus factory reset before giving to T-Mobile but was wondering the preorder logistics/costs up front. Thx

    • Arbi

      the rep told me that I have 30 days to return the old phone to any tmobile retail store.
      for the data, you need to sync through google account and back up your files first. activate your new phone by connecting to wifi and sync with your Google account. then you can reset your old phone and return it within 30 days.

      • J.J.

        Thank you very much, 30 days was what i needed to know.

        • skywalkr2

          The rep at my store says 14 days. So please do your own due diligence.

        • J.J.

          I actually just preordered over the phone a few moments ago and they also told me 14 days!

    • Jose Mejia

      Go to a store to pre-order and they can set it to where you have time to do data transfer before you return the device. To transfer data use Samsung Smart Switch app on both phones for a full data transfer. Contacts, messages, pic/vids and apps.

      • J.J.

        Thank you!

  • BillSmitty

    Probably won’t pre-order as don’t care for the initial offer (VR, games, NF), but will still probably pick up the S7 eventually. Looks like I’ll have a little longer wait to replace my crap @$$ Moto X 2013 with custom cracked screen. :)

  • Esghel

    Can I get this with T-Mobile promotion buy 1 get 2nd half off ?

  • I ordered the silver titanium

  • Mikey

    Samsung is more concerned with pushing out new flagships really fast to stay afloat over iPhone than actually going and making their software better, making updates better. That’s where iOS is king and will continue to be until Samsung gets it together. If you buy this phone then 1 or 2 updates is all you can expect. And support for it diminishing once they push out the next flagship probably later this year. This is exactly why iPhone sales trump these guys because Apple controls the updates and supports their phones like no other company. This is coming from the guy who has had note 2,3,4,5 s4,6, htc m8 lg G4, and all the IPhones. Keep coming back to iOS because of the stability and reliability. Just my honest opinion.

    • Hoggles

      A useless update is still a useless update Mikey. And by this I mean, if the update doesn’t improve your experience or security etc, then who cares if you get an update. Unless you’re just addicted to updates for the sake of getting updates…. ya know.

      For instance, updates have ruined my iPad3. It was FAR better/faster/smoother when it was on iOS6 that came with it. Every update since iOS 6 has degraded the performance of my ipad. Well, I should say that iOS 9 has improved the speed a little, but still no where near as enjoyable an experience to iOS 6.

      In short….updates are great if they improve your experience. And that is not always the case with iOS, or Android. Take for instance the white background on everything, since Lolipop & Marshmallow….and the pastel color scheme. That to me is a horrible update. Horrendous. Especially for an AMOLED screen. Same goes for the huge switch to the flat design on iOS. Forgot if that was iOS7 or 8. Still….that was such a horrible switch to the flat design of iOS…and Android for that matter. I’ve never understood why the OS has to be more simple, graphically, when the hardware is more powerful than ever. Silliness :)

      Also keep in mind. iOS is bar none the worst OS for simple, common sense things. Like simply transferring files, or adjusting a look, or font, or turning the transition animations off, or literally a hundred common sense things you can do with Android, that iOS forbids it’s users from doing. For no real reason. iOS is such a frustrating OS for anyone who likes options.

      Android is still the customization king. By far. And that’s a huge decider in what OS/phone to get.

      • Brian Richards

        I agree. The updates on the 5 made it a much worse phone experience for me. The 6 has been smooth like butter. I’m not sure I would install Marshmallow on it if it WAS available.

      • Mikey

        Android is customization king hand down. No argument there. I would hesitate to call all the things you listed “common sense” though, as the general population does not honestly care for these changes or options when purchasing a phone, hence the iPhone popularity (iOS specifically).

        My thing is, let’s just say tomorrow the s6 and iPhone 6s both are discovered to have some security vulnerabilities that need to be patched. Apple could fix that in less that a month (tops) while Samsung would stretch that out to 2-4 month, maybe more. Just look at the marshmallow updates. Note 5 and s6 had major RAM management issues that android 6.0 was supposed to address. Delay after delay from Samsung to get things updates. UI sucks no doubt, but the RAM issues are far more important to functionality. That’s what I’m talking about. I ditched note 5 after a mere 2 months because Samsung hasn’t gotten to updating it. Been a month in iPhone and still note 5 didn’t get it. That’s what I take issue with. Just how Samsung drags their feet and concerns more with hardware than software while pushing you a new phone instead of supporting the one you bought less than a year ago.

        • Hoggles

          Valid points. Though I still think Android’s multitasking is heads over heals above iOS’s version of multitasking. Even though you do get the app refresh from time to time with Android. Apples is SO non user friendly and sllllooooww imo. At least on my iPad.

          I think the only thing that Google needs to work on, is getting those small security patches that roll out to Nexus devices right away….rolling out to all Android phones right away. That is bar none the biggest flaw with Android fragmentation. Though….no one I know has ever had a security issue with their Android device. Not once. So even that question is a little mute.

          As for those common sense things I talk about and you say most iOS users don’t care about….well….I really think iOS users don’t care or know about those things, simply because they don’t have em. When I show anyone I know what I can do on an Android powered phone…they are always, always saying….”why isn’t that in iOS?”.

          Perfect example is the horribly slow transition animations in iOS. Any person who likes to fly through pages and apps (multitasking especially) has to suffer through the slowest transitions known to man. When I show friends or family that you can turn off all transition animations in Android….they always say…. why can’t I do that on my iPhone?!

          And I always say…. that’s a really good question.

          That’s just one common sense example.

        • Mikey

          Agreed on the multi tasking, which can only be improved with better RAM management imo. How iPhone gets away with such little RAM just highlights the way the systems are set up. I mean the note 5 I had ran 60-90% full constantly. And that’s with all these apps closed and shut off.

          Android fragmentation kills. I really wish that Google would just put their foot down and stop allowing manufacturer or even just carrier modification to it. The way apple does it is a great example. No bloat ware.

          Here is the thing though, even if given many of these customization features, I believe many would say “oh cool” and then put little use to them, given android complexity. Some feature that even apple adds I don’t even use. I think 3D Touch is a little gimmicky. I honestly forget I have it at times, even though I know all about it.

          Don’t take this the wrong way, but iPad multitasking has always been bad. I’m referring to the new iPhones vs new galaxies. I’ve never bothered with tables in general because of this, both android or Apple.

  • BadBatz

    Any S7 specs available where it counts, i.e. TELEPHONE specs..? Bands supported, VoLTE, Wi-Fi calling, SIP calling, Wi-Fi/LTE handover, etc. Integrated hot spot functionality, ICS..?

  • Brian Richards

    Important note: I’ve seen some comments on here about the sd card being used as “unified” storage. It’s actually called “adoptable” storage and Samsung DISABLED it in this phone. So that 32 GB is realy just 32 GB plus an SD. Not sure WTF they were thinking.

    http://m.androidcentral.com/galaxy-s7-regains-microsd-card-shuns-adoptable-storage

    http://www.androidheadlines.com/2016/02/galaxy-s7-family-wont-support-adoptable-storage.html

    • WhippetNYC

      @Brian: may i ask for further clarification please, if you don’t mind? does that mean SOME apps may be allowed to be moved from internal storage to the micro sdxc card? or, are you actually saying that NO apps will be allowed to be moved to micro sdxc card’s storage? thank you in advance.

      i recall previously, with the S5 (was it the S5 that had the external card? i forgot the model already), one would be able to click the “move to sd card” button on CERTAIN apps and, voila, that app would be moved. the issue is that not all apps may be moved, only some. Still, it’s better than if no apps were able to be moved at all!

        It means that you will have to cope with the same frustrating issues that the 5 had with some things can be on the sd card, and some can’t.

        Having moved to a 128, I am not at all excited about going backwards and having to deal with storage issues again on a new phone. I thought we had left that behind. Going 64 or 128 as standard instead of having the slot would have been better IMO.

        • WhippetNYC

          i see, @Brian. well, doesn’t that have more to do with how certain apps are written rather than Samsung allowing apps to be moved or not? My limited understanding is that certain apps are written so that they are required to reside on the phone’s internal storage, otherwise those apps would not function.

        • Brian Richards

          Yes, you are right for the old system. However with Marshmallow, Android allows the card to be used as if it were internal storage. This means you shouldn’t really have to think about it. It all looks the same to the user and the phone handles it. However Samsung disabled this new feature leaving you only with the old system.

        • Rafael

          One of the main reasons is that there could be a confusion in the part of non techie buyers who then swap the sd card then realizing that they cannot use the card elsewhere because it is restricted only the device that set it up can see its content. It is considered as a whole because it is an extension of the internal storage and as such internal can’t be transferred to another location.

        • WhippetNYC

          @Brian: thank you for that explanation. i did google adoptable storage and, yikes! it’s a shame that Samsung decided to go AGAINST what Google is recommending! I’d have thought that adoptable storage would be splendid. This is quite a shame. Unfathomable, Samsung.

        • Hoggles

          Brain, where have you confirmed this is the case with the S7? Link?

          I do agree that 128 should be the minimum in 2016. 256 should be an option.

          But again….where are you confirming this for the S7??

    • Hoggles

      Yeah, where did you get this info?

      • Brian Richards
      • Brian Richards

        Hoggles, I posted a couple links as a reply, but Disqus isn’t showing the post, so I added the links to my original post. If they aren’t showing there either, just bing or google “s7 adoptable storage”.

        • Hoggles

          Gotcha. Thanks! I see the links. Interesting for sure. And I guess a bummer for those who have a ton of apps.

          I don’t, so not a worry for me. But I do agree, it shouldn’t even remotely be an issue with a flagship device in 2016.

          It should be noted that root and mods will eventually fix/change this. Maybe. For those who will root of course :)

          Edit: After reading up more on it. To me, it’s biz as usual. It’ll be just like the storage on my S4. Perfectly fine with not having adoptable storage.

        • Brian Richards

          Yeah, I just thought people should be aware of this before cashing out their old phone. For me I got a 128 last time. I don’t know what the system usage on the s7 is, but on my s6, it says the system is using 14.16GB. So that’s almost half. It’s a safe bet, the s7 will use more. I’m not all the way up to 32 of usage on this phone if I take aside media and things I know I can SD card, but on my 3, 4, & 5, I found that the phone got very buggy and slow when the storage got past about 75% full. Everything just takes longer to accomplish. So until I read a lot of reviews saying that there are no performance issues, I’m holding off.

        • Hoggles

          Valid points! Thanks for bringing that to our attention though.

          Possibly the speed of the SD card would matter as well. Like making sure to get the latest U3 standard.

        • WhippetNYC

          @Hoggles: it’s not easy, as you may also find, like i did, to get a UHS-II and U3 micro sdxc card. there are very few! ultimately, i got a 200gb card not because i needed 200 gb, but because this particular 200gb version is faster than its 128 gb counterpart.

        • Brian Richards

          Yes. I would rather pay way more up front for the phone in order to have the simplicity and speed of large internal storage.

        • WeedMan101

          Agree, i have a 64gb s6 edge. Not sure if im going to get a 7 series. I may get the next Note.

  • Pricing isn’t that bad, compared to last ones. I’m not willing to pay more than $700 for a phone anymore. Now, if they put an SD card back in the Note, then I may return To Sammy

    • Jack

      They will just wait for Note 6.

      • WeedMan101

        Im going to wait for the next release because my s6 edge still holds weight

  • sammm

    JOD prices are way too high. Wish they had a special like iPhone $15/month!

    • skywalkr2

      How is it too high? You can keep the phone at the end. If they did cheap lease they would be giving the phones away cheaper on JOD vs purchase.

  • mreveryphone

    Just pre-ordered the Edge in titanium. I called the pre-order line listed on the site and they put me on a waiting list so I dialed 611 from my phone and got it ordered next day shipping at no extra cost. So if your thinking about pre-ordering then call 611 from your phone.

  • SirMakoto

    why am i under the impression that if i do JoD, the phones would be a $100+ cheaper after 18 months of payment? how come the buy off value is not listed for JoD?

    • Jose

      At the 18mo mark, I believe you get the option to either buy out the phone for the remaining amount or jump to something else and lose the phone.

  • Marto Manov

    Galaxy s7 edge silver titanium Inc, got free over night shipping on my JOD upgrade pre order too, thanks T-mobile!

    • Vlad

      How you received free overnight?
      Or they give it to everyone?
      Any delivery estimate?
      Hoping to do JOD tonight after work

      • mreveryphone

        If you can sneak off and do it now I would. I could hear in the background and the reps were ordering S7’s left and right. The rep told me next day shipping was free with the pre-order. She gave me a delivery date of the 10th.

        • Hoggles

          Yeah. Little bit of a bummer for me, as the rep I had must have screwed up a bit. She said that 3 day shipping was the fatest option and I even had to pay $14 for it.

          I called back a little bit ago and the guy said they couldn’t change the shipping speed on an existing order. Which I find a little hard to believe.

          Going to try again one more time to get it switched to next day.

          Yowzer.

        • livewire1981

          This is why I always deal with the store. Got overnight shipping for free.

      • Marto Manov

        The Rep said that because it was a pre-order it was free overnight shipping, also said it should ship by 3/10 as it says on website still.

  • jbworldwide1

    Can you pre order with store pick up?

  • HeatFan786

    Silver Titanium GS7 Edge for me. If the Gold was similar to the S6 Edge, I would’ve gone that way, but good color choice with Silver, Samsung. T-Mobile’s awesome extra bonus w/ Netflix to boot. Thanks T-Mobile.

  • Sean

    GS7 Edge in Silver Titanium for me. It will be like having a mirror with you everywhere you go lol.

  • Rafael

    S7 edge Onyx

  • david lee

    Anyone know if they’re going to ship early? If I remember from the s6, people got theirs 3 days later after the preorder date

    • david lee

      I’m guessing no one are getting their s7 early lol

  • drew

    Anyone knows how pre-orders work with jump on demand ?

    • livewire1981

      I went to the store, and they placed the order and said that when I get the new phone to bring my current jod phone in.

  • Joe

    Just preordered the edge version. Black onyx. The website is working now as I just did it so you dont have to call it in. My son will love the VR headset. I guess I’ll try it out also. I got the black onyx because I plan on buying an otterbox case for it which means I won’t be seeing the color of the phone anyway. Anyone need an near mint Galaxy Note 3? no scratches took good care of it lol.

  • Dave

    I just ordered White Sodium.

    • MattPortland

      No you didn’t.

  • Jose

    Silver S7 edge.
    Pre-ordered first thing this morning in-store. Free overnight.
    Just hoping the VR thing goes as smooth as the pre-order.

    Only thing left to do is order a case…

    • livewire1981

      I’m between an otterbox or uag. Kinda leaning uag.

      • Jose

        If I were to choose between those 2, I would go UAG for the clear option. Gotta show off that silver finish.

        Ended up going with a Spigen case. Just got the notification that it’s sitting in the mailbox right outside.

  • Mohammed Islam

    Hi
    How can we will get netflix code

    • skywalkr2

      You get the code when you get the phone and put in your claim for the Gear VR promo. That’s what I have heard.

  • Vlad

    Pre-ordered yesterday, on JOD, signed new lease agreement.
    All went smoothly, just need to return old phone within 20 days of delivery of new.

    • skywalkr2

      They told me 14 days. Please check… and also make sure you return to the tmo store.

      • Scott Maier

        I was told 14 days as well or I could keep my current JOD phone and still make the lease payments on it and purchase at the end of the lease

  • MarcTheStrong

    Pre-ordered S7 Blk Onyx yesterday!!!!! Cant wait to ditch this iPhone 6s.

    Also have a 128GB sdcard and Spigen Tough Armor coming too. All i need now is Zagg Invisible shield HD and my mission will be complete.

    • Vlad

      Can you recommend really fast SD card?

      • skywalkr2

        Sandisk or Samsung are both good.

  • WhippetNYC

    May I ask if the S7 Edge’s camera has Optical Image Stabilization?

    Some have said that it has “Smart Optical Image Stabilization”, though no one seems to know what “smart” really means.

    Traditional Optical Image Stabilization is when one part of the optical lens actually shifts in order to compensate for the movement of the camera, thus creating a stable image captured.

    Thanks.

    • Vlad

      Of course
      Even s6 already had OIS

  • mike hernandez

    anyone know the best sd card for the s7 to get max performance ? looking for a 128gb

    • skywalkr2

      Sandisk ultra is good, but if you want really fast the best is Sandisk ultra 200gb.

    • Dark enV

      I’ve used this brand a lot. Not terribly expensive and I find it to be very fast. Notice though that the GS7 will not support adaptive storage that’s built into Android Marshmallow.

      Silicon Power 128GB up to 75MB/s MicroSDXC UHS-1 Class10, Elite Flash Memory Card with Adaptor (SP128GBSTXBU1V20SP) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00T9QONOU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_GRKZwbK0GEQPS

    • FilmRebel101

      Make sure you get MicroSD cards marked with “Pro”. 95M Read/90Write or somewhere around there. Right now the best ones are the 64GB. The 128GB are too expensive. The reason you want the 90 read and write is for the 4K functionality of the phone. While 4k may work using lower read and write speeds–its usually pretty unstable and can affect quality of your media. My favorite brand is Sandisk Extreme Pro. Super solid and used a lot in Hollywood for SDCards, CF Cards, etc. The 64GB run about $50-$70 (slightly higher than the generics. You can get 128GB–but the cost is more than doubled and the speed goes down to about 60-75MB which means is rated for 1080P not 4K.

  • skywalkr2

    I just made a pre-order for black S7. Wasn’t going to update, but Samsung + Tmobile made a pre-order too tempting.

  • Rob Sauceda

    There on display on Best Buy and honestly the edge felt like the real s7, it was so nice in hand that it was a no brainier

    • jtothada

      Agreed! I was on the fence about the edge and thought it was a gimmick….but after few minuets of holding it in bestbuy I was sold….I still think the curved edges are gimmick but it’s the perfect size between my note 5 and the s7….I just hate how it looks in a case and I’m a need one

    • skywalkr2

      I had the opposite take. The s7 edge seemed too similar to the s7 for me to pay $100 more. Plus I didn’t like the edges.

  • skywalkr2

    Just went to best buy today. 1) The S7 was beautiful. Screen was gorgeous. 2) Side by side the edge really didnt seem much bigger and I really didn’t like the “edges”. 3) Gear VR was a revelation.

  • JE_25

    Preordered the 32GB S7 Edge Black on 2/25 in store. Received my tracking info today.
