Samsung Galaxy S 7 active review: Design

When we are looking towards the design of this galaxy s7, then we feel this design more premium and unique than another Samsung smartphone. The design is similar to the other Samsung smartphones, but the only difference is plastic frame is provided around the smartphone for the protection. This makes this smartphone more beautiful and look premium and looks different than other Samsung devices. Dimensions of this Samsung galaxy s7 is 148.8 x 74.9 x 9.9 mm (5.86 x 2.95 x 0.39 in). From this, it is clear that this smartphone is 9.9 mm thick that means around 10 mm thicker. I think that is much slimmer as the plastic frame is provided in this smartphone. The weight of this smartphone is around 184 grams. This smartphone is not much heavier that why it is easy to handle.
