One of the biggest announcements at Mobile World Congress this year is the SamsungGalaxy S7. At first glance it looks very similar to the last model but there are few major improvements. This time around we’ve got two very different models the standard galaxy s7 with a 5.1 inch screen and the s7 edge that comes with a bigger 5.5 inch curved display both are sporting a slight taper around back like the note 5 compared with the aluminum and glass build. It is undoubtedly one of the most premium looking phones out there Samsung also brought back a couple highly requested features including a micro SD card slot and the return of waterproofing. This is a big one galaxy s7 can be submerged in a meter and a half of water for 30 minutes and thankfully there aren’t any annoying flaps over the port’s inside. It’s no slouch with the brand new Snapdragon 820 four gigabytes of ram and much bigger batteries which should help deliver the longevity. The last gen lacked it’s also rocking a new 12 megapixel camera it gives up a bit of detail for a wider lens and bigger pixels which should help massively in low light.
One of the biggest surprises at nwc is the LG g5 it’s rocking a new aluminum bill that feels a lot nicer than the g4. It’s surprisingly light with the smaller 5.3 inch screen if it’s really nicely in the hand the design is a massive improvement not only does it look great this might be one of the most comfortable phones i’ve ever used instead of real buttons we’ve got a fingerprint sensor that doubles the power button while the display might not be a Mallette it still looks fantastic with a 1440 resolution and it gets seriously bright here with android 6.0 and LG scan still a bit too far from stock android for my days but it’s totally usable look around back and you’ll find something a little different two cameras. It has a normal 16 megapixel sensor is paired with a wide angle camera to give you two totally different looks for photos. It has a cool idea that gives you what almost as good an optical zoom with that a giant camera on the back robably the coolest feature is the removable battery the bottom of the phone pops off if you need to swap batteries but you can also add with LG calls friends. These are modules that can add new features like this bang & olufsen headphone amp which promises hugely improved audio performance.
There’s also the LG camp laws which not only includes a larger battery with extra controls and a group for the camera. This is a really cool idea to expand your phone without Bolton giant accessories on something I absolutely wasn’t expecting is the HP le x 3 while windows phone has been flatlining lately clearly no one told HP and they threw basically everything at the elite. The giant 6-inch phone is packed with tech like the snapdragon 820 from the g4 and at seven and a monster 40 150 million power battery, it might not be the nice looking phone out there but it has a trick up it sleeve continuum plug it into the USB see doc and the elite transforms into a Windows 10 PC hook up a monitor mouse and keyboard and you’re ready to go unfortunately since its on base you won’t have full Windows 10 to use normal apps but you still get a browser and optimized version of some things like word. It is an early prototype superformance with a bit sketchy and it’s missing a couple features like a retina scanner that should be on the final version but the idea of having one device that can be both your phone and computer.
