yes, just wondering if the edge is going to have the same cabilities like Google assistant in the near future?
We have no way of knowing for sure. I have read that Samsung is working on their own voice type assistant for the Galaxy S8 series, but whether that will come to the S7 series via a software update, we have no way of knowing for certain.
It might help you to take a look at the Google Pixel Simulator to see exactly how it works! here is the link: Pixel, Phone by Google Support | Verizon Wireless
You can actually go through the steps to send a text message or add a contact (or whatever) and see how many steps there are to perform different tasks. it lets you "try out" the phone!
I also have the Pixel and the S7 Edge. I prefer the Pixel although it is only by a slim margin. The S7 Edge is a fine phone. IF the S7 Edge were likely to get OS updates as often or as quickly as the Pixel, they may even be equal in my eyes. I have the S7 Edge using the Google Now launcher, so I am not using Samsung's skin they have dropped on top of android.
I personally think the S7 Edge is more comparable to the Pixel than the Pixel XL. If you prefer a larger phone, the Pixel XL is the larger device.
