Samsung S7 Edge which is the a year ago flagship devices, so that's why the device runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) but the good news is that it is upgradable to Android 7.0 (Nougat), while the LG G6 runs on the latest Android version the Android Nougat.

Second, since Galaxy S8 is bigger and heavier, Galaxy S7 is still considered as pocket-friendly. In testing Samsung's new flagship smartphone, it crowned the OLED display of Samsung Galaxy S8 as the best smartphone display.
