[Sponsored] Another flagship showdown: Galaxy S7 edge vs iPhone 7 Black Friday deals

Black Friday week is again upon us, and of course, there will be lots of deals to be had. Retailers all across the web and on the high street are rolling out offers due to the huge amount of people shopping over the next week.

In addition to popular staples of the holiday season such as toys and games, some of the hottest competition between retailers this year will be on smartphones. If you’re looking to get a new smartphone either as a Christmas gift for someone or yourself, one of the biggest showdowns this year will again be between the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and iPhone 7 headsets.

These two phones have battled it out continuously this year and now many retailers are dropping their prices on these two rival flagship handsets in the run up to Christmas, so Black Friday makes it the best time to get one.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge vs iPhone 7: Black Friday deals

With prices on the two handsets being lowered in some amazing Black Friday deals, figuring out which one is best for you can become a little tricky for some. There is no doubt that the Samsung handsets are the best in their class amongst Android phones and the Galaxy S7 edge is no different, with a brilliant spec-sheet, superb design and display, not to mention its water resistance. So although the iPhone 7 may have the edge in performance, and is ahead in sales, Samsung is still the clear winner.

However, both models also tend to come at the pricey end of the spectrum, which is why events like black Friday and cyber Monday have been growing hugely in popularity in the smartphone industry retail calendar.

Retailers have lowered prices on these two handsets for Black Friday, particularly for pay-monthly options, with the smartphones available with no up-front cost and with low monthly payments in some cases. Leading UK retailer Mobile Phones Direct features the Galaxy S7 edge on carrier 3 as one of its Black Friday deals. Those looking to get the handset can do so with no upfront fees on a £36/ month payment plan, with unlimited call minutes, unlimited text messages, and 8GB of data for browsing the web.

Will shopping season 2016 see the turning point?

There is no doubt that events such as these offer great deals for consumers on top-spec handsets, and because a number of people set to be looking for good deals due to recent economic instability, events such as these have the ability to shape the market.

Despite the on-going popularity of the Apple brand, iPhone sales did decline midway through the year, so it would not be surprising if Samsung begins to dominate the market in 2017 thanks to an influx of new users worldwide.
