One thing that's as inevitable as the annual appearance of a new Galaxy phone is iFixit tearing it down. The repair people have, as usual, sought to understand Samsung's Galaxy S7 by exposing its various parts including the heat pipe it uses for cooling, which is really more of a "copper twig." There's also evidence of all the new seals that contribute to its IP68-rated water resistance, the larger 3,000 mAh battery (compared to 2,550mAh in the S6, 1,715 mAh in the iPhone 6S and 2,750 mAh in the iPhone 6S Plus) and Dual Pixel-equipped 12MP camera sensor. The only bad news? If repairing your own device is important to you, some of the strategies used to increase its waterproofing will actually work against you, but you can read the teardown for all of the details.
