Samsung Galaxy S7 edge repeats as the GSMA Smartphone of the year at MWC27
According to Samsung, the Galaxy S7 edge was recognized for its "refined design, advanced camera and outstanding performance." The Galaxy S7 edge beat out the other nominees in the best smartphone category which included:
- Apple for the Apple iPhone 7 Plus
- Google for the Google Pixel XL
- Huawei for the Huawei P9
- Motorola for the Moto Z
The win makes it two consecutive victories for the same phone as the 2016 winner was also the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Normally, Sammy might have nominated the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ after unveiling both at MWC, but it has pushed back the introduction of both models until March 29th.
