Although Samsung bore the weight of the Note 7 controversy, they start 2017 with the prestige of winning 2016 Smartphone of the Year for the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The South Korean electronics giant took the crown in the Pocket-lint awards. They defeated direct competitors such as the Apple iPhone 7 and the OnePlus 3 to get the coveted title. The awards were held at Shoreditch Town Hall in London. A panel of judges and site readers judge the nominated devices in order to determine a winner.
Samsung might have had its troubles recently, but there’s no denying this is an amazing device. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a fantastic smartphone in its own right, but it’s the S7 edge that turns heads; this is the smartphone that’s calling for attention; this is the handset that’s unique.
