Samsung Galaxy S7 edge repeats as the GSMA Smartphone of the year at MWC
While Moonlight took home the Academy Award for 'Best Picture' last night (with a brief detour), the GSMA also announced its "Best of" for MWC 2017. And named as the Best Smartphone in the Best Mobile Handsets and Devices category was (envelope please) La La Land. Oops. Sorry about that. We were given the wrong card by Price Waterhouse. Really. Actually, named as the best smartphone at MWC was the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

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:

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.
