I picked up an S7 last night, best buy had the hook up deal going, so, why not, they had the best rebates ($300 best buy gift card(per phone), plus Gear VR(prolly won't use it), and wireless charging station), I'm buying a tv soon for the basement so it made sense, I can take that money towards that Big Ass TV.. :) I will give this one to the daughter when the next google phone comes out ( I wanted water proof and adaptive storage, and a few bells whistles). I have had an S4 for over 3 years, never had a real issue, wife had an S3 for about 5 years, no real issues. I am absolutely hard on phones, drop them a lot, etc. I will monitor battery life, so far, today, I picked it up at 6:30 AM, streamed pandora into my truck all the way to work(45 minute ride), checked emails, browsed a little in chrome, checked bank account balance and a few texts, battery at 85% as of right now (12:50 Central time).
The AI (google assistant) that is in Pixel is only a very first step, next steps will start to drop jaws.
