The Galaxy S7 Edge has the potential to be the most popular Android smartphone this year. Our hands-on impressions are definitely favourable, but what do the critics think? Here’s our roundup.
“On the edge of perfection… the S7 Edge is easily one of the best phones I’ve ever used, and probably the best Android phone you can buy right now.”
“Samsung’s finest get more polished. They’re not groundbreaking, and that’s OK… a more consistent camera and more modest power consumption would have made this great phone one for the history books.”
“The Galaxy S7 Edge is everything its predecessor was and more. The device design, software and camera have improved as you would expect, only now we also have a stronger battery, more power, a microSD card slot, and water resistance. “
“The new greatest Android handset of all is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge… you’re getting a tremendous combination of photographic firepower, in-hand comfort, build quality, water resistance, processing, and pragmatism.”
“The best smartphone in the world right now. Five stars to Samsung, as the brand iterates perfectly on an already award-winning smartphone, adding a brilliant camera and gorgeous design.”
“Samsung’s latest curved wonder is super-stylish, super-powered and simply all-round super. It’s just as stunning as last year’s S6 Edge and packs in some genuinely useful features to go with its Fancy Dan visage.”
“Best in class camera, design and performance make the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge the Android phone to beat in 2016. We might have the phone of the year already, and it’s only March.”
