The alluring color was perhaps one of the most distinguishing factors of the gadget when it debuted earlier this summer with much fanfare. In addition to features and options that were formerly available only on the Note, it’s clear the S7 Edge and S7 are slowly taking on more of the discontinued device’s components in the latest software upgrade in order to increase value for customers.
