  • Samsung has tweaked the winning design from the S6, righted the wrongs of its previous flagships, and made a phone you don't want to put down. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is iterative perfection.


  • Stunning. Samsung has just raised the bar for every other Android device. Simply put, if you want to buy a new phone right now, this is the one to pick.


  • The Samsung Galaxy S6 was the best phone of 2015 and, although it’s still early days, the Galaxy S7 is a serious contender for best phone of 2016. Samsung has taken into account what its fans want, addressing the three main areas of concern: removable storage, waterproofing and battery life. It’s also upgraded the core hardware and photography gear, added an always-on display and some useful software. Right now the Galaxy S7 is simply unbeatable.


  • The gorgeous Galaxy S7 Edge makes the best Android phone that much better.


  • Pricing wasn’t particularly on the side of the Galaxy S6 edge last year, mainly because for a phone that matched the S6 on paper, its added $100 premium cost on top of the S6 didn’t seem justifiable. Not surprisingly, though, the S7 edge’s pricing follows the same strategy by being accompanied with an additional $100 cost over what most of the domestic carriers will be selling the S7 for.


  • Five stars to Samsung, as the brand iterates perfectly on an already award-winning smartphone, adding a brilliant camera and gorgeous design.


  • We’ve dissected every part of the Samsung Galaxy Note5, and not surprisingly, it’s still an incredibly advanced device that’s untested in the phablet space. Performance alone proves that it’s every bit capable of tangling with the other handful of heavy handed phones that have been announced so far for the upcoming holiday season.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The Galaxy Note 5 packs incredible processing power and puts it behind the best display you can get. But this iteration of Samsung's top phablet comes with compromises.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 requires two hands and a pile of cash, but it's the best Android phone with a large screen, a stylus and an accurate camera. Just don't look for it to have a microSD card, removable battery – or availability outside the US.


  • For the upcoming holiday season, Samsung has two phablets in its roster to compete against the competition – the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+. After reviewing the Note5, it’s still the ultimate productivity tool that’s unrivaled in the space. So where does that leave the “other” phablet in Sammy’s stable?

  • Rating Unavailable

    The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is the best-looking phablet around, but the Galaxy Note 5 is much more functional.


  • A superb phone for those in love with phablets - this is aesethetics combined with stellar performance at a decent price... just a shame the battery still suffers.


  • The landscape is always evolving, that’s just the reality of things, as phone companies live and die by the rising tide of demand. BlackBerry, unfortunately, has been on the decline for the better part of the last several years – they’re just nowhere close to being the same company they were prior to Apple and Google’s dominance.


  • The BlackBerry Priv is the mullet of the smartphone world. It's still business in the front, but now there's a party in the back too. It will divide opinion, but this is the best BlackBerry in years.

  • Rating Unavailable

    An Android slider is an extremely rare occurrence nowadays and the Priv has adopted the form factor masterfully for a stylish overall look.
    The Priv makes use of little premium materials like metal or glass, despite its premium price. Plastic isn't a bad choice in itself, but the particular one doesn't quite feel flagship-worthy. Built quality is only ok with some annoying flaws.
    Gorgeous 5.4-inch AMOLED display, with nice and punchy colors. The slight edge curve gives it an extra refined look.
