We like the new Galaxy S7 and Verizon ain’t too bad either


I mentioned earlier that I left AT&T, switched to Verizon, joined my wife’s existing plan, and we bought Samsung Galaxy S7 phones in matching Black Onyx. We got nice cases (mine is extra grippy), screen protectors, and I have the best insurance they can offer. It only seems prudent.

It’s been a few days now, but I like the phone. I think I may have been more wowed with the S7 Edge phone, but I gotta say the regular S7 is very nice. I won’t list all the detailed tech specs because you can find that online in many places. Overall, it’s a very good phone. It’s a good size, fast, running Android Marshmallow 6.0, and a long running battery.

Unfortunately there is no option to remove or swap batteries. We do have the ability to install a micro SD card, so I bought us matching 64 GB SanDisk microSDXC cards.


The S7 does have a fingerprint scanner built into the Home button. I try to use it, but it doesn’t work for me most of the time. Meh.

I mentioned switching to Verizon. I’ve most recently been with AT&T since 2007. I enjoyed significant corporate discounts with both Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase, and I liked their device selection. Switching to Verizon Wireless last month, we’ll be saving a good $75 a month by sharing our data. The network is fine, call quality is good, yada yada.

Good enough for me.
