  • 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.


  • Question marks hang over this phone’s modular capabilities, but that aside this is still a high quality smartphone with plenty to recommend it


  • With an improved battery swapping system, the LG G5 isn't a bad phone, per se. But various other features probably looked better in the R&D lab than they do in real life.


  • At the end of the review process, we're feeling kind of empty in that we can't quite place our finger on what it is that isn't feeling exactly right with the G5. Objectively, it's a competent flagship and even a decent improvement over its predecessor in some ways, but it feels like it's just way too round in character.


  • So, what do we think of the Galaxy Note 5? We’re very fond of just about every aspect of the Galaxy Note 5, from its curved and sleek design to its vibrant display and high-resolution camera. It can handle almost anything you can throw at it thanks to its CPU, GPU and 4GB of RAM and we experienced no lag during our testing. The only bad point is that the Note 5 would sometimes falsely detect the S Pen detaching – and to point out such a minor fault says a lot about the quality of the handset.


  • Samsung's Galaxy Note series has never been for everyone, but the Note 5 just might change some minds. It's the smallest, most comfortable version of the phablet to date, and thoughtful software tweaks make the S Pen feel way less gimmicky. A great screen and first-rate performance are icing on the proverbial cake, but some people will still feel burned by the lack of expandable memory, a bigger 128GB option or a removable battery.


  • With its slick body and brand-new S Pen, the Galaxy Note 5 is the best phablet you can buy.


  • 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.
