1. Best smartphone – Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
The S6 Edge was, quite simply, the best smartphone of 2015. It was also the best smartphone of early 2016 too, with a combination of a stylish glass and metal build, gorgeous curved screen and stunning camera turning iPhone and Windows Phone users green with envy. However, Samsung have since dropped the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and, while not delivering radical advancement, the company has upgraded and honed last year’s flagship with super impressive results. When reviewing the phone, T3 said that:
“Whether you value the premium glass and aluminium chassis, the high-end specs, or the outstanding camera. This smartphone has it all.”
