This top-of-the-line handset was recognized as best smartphone of 2016 at this year's Glomo Awards in Barcelona, an event that unfolded at the Mobile World Congress trade show.

Although the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 could receive the "worst smartphone of 2016" award, Samsung seems to be doing great after all. The next-gen Galaxy flagship should arrive by the end of March, but for now, the Galaxy S7 Edge still deserves some attention. In late February 2017, at the Global Mobile Awards at MWC 2017, this handset received the "Best Smartphone 2016" award.

According to Junho Park, Vice President of Global Product Strategy, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, "This award is a testament to our constant pursuit of excellence as we continue to exceed consumers’ expectations through revolutionary mobile technology."

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge was announced back in February 2016 and arrived on the market the following month. Available in single SIM and dual SIM variants, this 5.5-inch handset uses a Super AMOLED 1440p display, next to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or Eynos 8890 Octa processor, 4 GB RAM, 32/64/128 GB internal storage, and is also IP68 certified for protection from the elements. The operating system installed back then was Marshmallow, but a Nougat update has become available in the meantime.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
