You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to.

Samsung SM-G930U Reviews

Galaxy S7 SM-G930U 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10192.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lost & Found This is my s7 story. I had a cookout last weekend. The table i had laid my phone on was blown over when the wind picked up. My phone has a morphie power pack as well causing it to land face up. I searched for the phone for three days before finding it in standing water. I have just spilled water on other phones from a glass knocked over at the table & fry the phone. This phone & power pack lay in the elements for three days, and it rained one of the days, and the phone was wet in water when I found it. I shook it off dried it plugged it in & no problems. If you are like me and can destroy anything this is the phone for you.. ,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Severe WiFi issue! This phone has one severe issue that trumps all of the good points of this phone, and that is a WiFi issue. There are a lot of reports of the WiFi not working when the Bluetooth is on, but my experience is even worse. My WiFi data speed is slower then dial-up modem speeds. And if WiFi is on, it slows the 4G LTE speeds to 1G speeds. This is not just one phone, I had a pre-order that was returned, only to find the second phone had a identical issue. I have done all of the uninstall, reinstall, The factory resets, Tried different WiFi networks. And WiFi will not work correctly, and it brings LTE to it's knees!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New to Androids I am impressed with the beauty and functionality of this phone. Am still learning my way around android system. My service provider store reps did the setup and transfer from my last phone, and also installed the strong protective screen guard in the event the phone decides to inadvertently take a "ground flight". Photos are VERY impressive; camera is stable NO blurs. Love the camera! The S7 Edge is perfect weight, feels like high quality, Paired easily with my Bluetooth devices seamlessly. Busy exploring the apps and all the amenities of the device. Also located a really nice "back protective jacket" in the exact same color of the phone. Didn't want to cover the beautiful Gold back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy but sensitive. The phone is sturdy and thank you to the engineer who finally offset the screen off key from the volume down key. The keyboard is difficult to use, and I don't understand why it is so hard to make the pbone know up from down in rotate mode. Great screen, very vivid, a bit too sensitive but a great phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st time Galaxy owner As the title says, this is my 1st galaxy to own - and I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with the details and features it comes with. I haven't been able to play around with the camera much or anything - except for a few minutes being goofy with my son checking out the options - but it is AWESOME so far. The ONLY issue I have with it is the battery life - it could use some improvement - majorly. I have done all the tips and taken the phone to the store even thinking that it was a bad phone, but it's still not the best. Other than that, this is the greatest phone - I will definitely be buying another new one when the next upgrade is due!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like the man said... Truly one of the greatest phones ever made but like most anything this great it has an Achilles heel--Samsung just doesn't want to provide the security updates. The other S7 models and most all other competitors get timely, at least monthly, security updates. The SM-G930U is lucky to get them quarterly. My phone is 3 months behind on addressing vulnerabilities at the moment. No Android 7 in sight. Unfortunately the always great people of B&H are powerless on this one. No one tells Sammy what to do. Certainly not the customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone overall I really do love this hardware. I feel like I'm from the future when I'm holding it. Unfortunately, I don't feel so futuristic when I'm using it. While many of the software features are great and the os is overall pretty stable, the lack of fluidity can be fairly jarring. Just today I had to restart the phone because it was exhibiting symptoms of a memory leak (extreme lag and then apps like the keyboard closing and restarting while using them). Also, the fluidity of animations leaves a little more polish desired. If Samsung were to just polish up the software a bit more I could comfortably say this is the best phone you can buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gorilla Glass? I think not Save your money and find another phone. I accidentally dropped my phone from less than 1.5 feet and the supposed "Gorilla Glass 4" screen cracked. The slick marketing makes it seem that this phone can withstand a lot of abuse without scratching or cracking but that is a lie. Also, after the software update, I continuously receive a pop up on my screen saying an internet connection cannot be found when I am indeed connected to the internet. Very poor design on this phone. I had a previous S5 that was able to withstand way more than this one and never once showed a blemish or scratch.

How is this different from the carrier unlocked phones? And why is it more expensive than them, for example the T-Mobile unlocked S7 goes for $399?
Asked by: Tejas S.
This is the factory unlocked US version, that can be used with any US carrier that accepts unlocked phones, including CDMA carriers like Sprint and Verizon. This model does not have any T-Mobile software. We have no agreements with any carriers, so we cannot offer carrier specific rebates.
