Consumer Reports: Galaxy S7 is the best smartphone ever
Consumer Reports has long been considered among the authority in objective and honest product reviews, delivering in-depth coverage on electrical appliances through categories ranging from features and reliability to safety. Having put the Galaxy S7 through its paces, the magazine has given Samsung credit for tending to the basics like battery life and camera performance, along with the continued implementation of niche features such as VR support.
Last time out, the Galaxy S6 wasn't held in such high regard, and Consumer Reports scored the LG G4 higher than last year's flagship. With the modular G5 having yet to arrive and plenty of other releases on the horizon, there's certainly scope for a rival to dethrone the S7. But where Consumer Reports preferred the preceding Galaxy S5 to the S6, there's no indication that the same is true of Sammy's latest and greatest. Suffice to say, should any other handset look to outdo the Galaxy S7 this year, it will need to bring its A Game.
We can certainly understand why Consumer Reports has drawn such conclusions with the Galaxy S7. In our own review we couldn't really find a fault, which goes to show that even in a market abundant with feature-rich devices, those particularly well-crafted can stand out from the crowd.
Even if the Samsung Galaxy S7 is not an acquisition you intend to make, the reverence of the device is great news all round. It means that rivals will not get complacent, and instead look to raise the bar even further if they can.
Do you agree that the Galaxy S7 is the greatest of all time, or is this a bit of a slight at the legendary Nokia 3310? Let us know in the comments.
