Consumer Reports names the Samsung Galaxy S7 as the best smartphone ever


Last updated: March 23rd, 2016 at 09:31 UTC+02:00

Did you know that we were the first ones to report that Samsung has codenamed the Galaxy S7 as ‘Lucky’? Well, the device turned out quite lucky for the world’s largest smartphone maker. Initial sales of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge have exceeded the company’s estimates in various important markets, and they have been named as the best smartphones by experts around the world.

If that wasn’t enough, Consumer Reports has named the Galaxy S7 as the best smartphone ever reviewed. It found the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge to have excellent battery life, great cameras, super-fast processors, and very high-resolution displays. The inclusion of water resistance and microSD card slot was praised as well, and they became one of the reasons that put the devices on top of smartphone rankings.

Mike Gikas, the senior editor of Consumer Reports, wrote, “These new models aren’t just Samsung’s best smartphones, but, perhaps, the best smartphones“. The test goes on to show that getting the basics right (like camera quality and battery life) is the most important thing even though brands continue to add niche features like fingerprint sensors and VR compatibility.

Consumer Reports is a highly regarded American monthly magazine, which started 80 years ago. It publishes reviews of various consumer products and services based on in-house testing. The magazine does not accept any advertising, pays for all the products and services it tests, has an annual testing budget of $21 million, and has around 7.3 million subscribers.
