  • Always a relevant player in the space, Samsung has yet another formidable offering that sets the benchmark high for all other phones coming out this year. The specs might not be a tremendous upgrade, but at the end of the day, when you want a phone that just works, the Galaxy S7 fits the bill. When we think of a flagship, we envision something that just works flawlessly and without much hassle. This is exactly that!


  • 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.

  • Rating Unavailable

    Samsung's flagships have always been the trend-setters, and the Galaxy S7 proudly joins its predecessors. Fair enough, after the fundamental overhaul last year, the focus in 2016 is on fine-tuning, polish and refinement. The camera and the Always On display are the couple of attention grabbers but the big story is simple, as usual. The Galaxy S7 is such a complete package that taking a rest on the seventh was obviously never on Samsung's mind.


  • 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.

    If you break it down to its parts, you will be right to ask what stopped Samsung from delivering it a year ago. Try it, and the experience may change your perspective. Hold it in hand and you may as well wish all phones were like it.


  • 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.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The LG G5 is as good as any current flagship at a time when flagships are inevitably more and more alike as makers wouldn't risk falling behind. It's hard not to appreciate LG for making the less obvious choice - probably knowing that there are easier, more obvious choices a user can make. Failure to monetize innovation certainly hurts but failure to innovate can kill you.


  • LG hasn’t done enough with the G5 to increase my desire for a modular phone. Combine this with the disappointing build and you have a phone that isgreat in many areas, but misses the mark overall.


  • The iPhone SE is a great smartphone that brings plenty of power in a small package. It's designed to appeal to those who aren't fussed by today's typically large flagship phones. If you are upgrading from the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5 and don't want a larger phone then the SE is a no-brainer. It's faster in every aspect and delivers a phone that will feel familiar but deliver the goods at today's current top-spec level.


  • iPhone 5. or. iPhone 7. The iPhone SE certainly isn’t a ground-breaker, but it is a solid attempt at building a 4-inch smartphone that doesn’t compromise on features (and after all, who really, really needs 3D Touch?). It is a little puzzling why Apple didn’t do just a little more work on the design to give it a further point of difference for people who already have an 5S, but perhaps it tried to do a new version of the iPhone 5C and decided that bright coloured cases didn’t work for Nokia/Microsoft, so why bother?.


  • While the rest of us wait for the iPhone 7 later this year, the iPhone SE is a great choice for small phone fans looking for an 'iPhone 6S Mini.'


  • Another year, another new iPhone – that’s just the way the world runs. Being the year of the ‘S’ for Apple, it means that the we’re given the same looking iPhone from the previous year, but with some upgraded hardware in the necessary areas, so that includes the processor, camera, and much more. In true fashion, the iPhone 6s Plus hits the mark in those crucial areas, cementing itself as a strong competitor in the field for those who happen to love, you know, big phones.For us, the biggest changes include its intuitive 3D Touch feature and the improved battery life.


  • The iPhone 6s Plus for Sprint can tap into LTE speeds that previous iPhones could only dream of.


  • Apple has reinvigorated its phablet without rewriting the playbook thanks to its smart 3D Touch technology and a more power under the hood. It's not the upgrade some will have been hoping for, but it's the upgrade we've got.
