#1. Samsung Galaxy S6
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

The MWC 2015 marks Samsung's unveiling of their 6th Galaxy-S flagship, which lists several innovations under the Korean brand's belt...

Noteworthy:

  • Performance: The Samsung Galaxy S6 runs on a 14nm octa-core processor with 64-bit architecture that is likely more efficient compared to conventional 20nm chips
  • Special: it combines the eMMC (smartphones) and SSD (PCs) memory types to create its Universal Flash Storage 2.0, promising faster data transfer speeds than older storage technologies
  • Imaging: it boasts one of the most capable back-facing cameras among Samsung flagships at 16 megapixels, with Optical Image Stabilization and Tracking AF among its options
  • Connectivity: it promises up to 620Mbps data rates on 4G LTE Cat6, which is one of the fastest speeds you can get out of a smartphone

#2. Samsung Galaxy S7
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

Samsung built around the premium-tier specs of the Galaxy S6 for its MWC 2016 Galaxy S7, a 5.1-inch Quad HD always-on-screen flagship equipped with the 14nm Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core (2.1GHz + 1.6GHz) processor, a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, and a 64GB UFS 2.0 memory with an up-to-200GB top-up memory support...

Noteworthy:
