“The OnePlus 3 is the rare kind of phone that I can recommend without reservations.”
— The Verge
“The OnePlus 3 won’t disappoint you. And if horsepower and customizability are you top priorities, you should get one, regardless of your budget.”
Galaxy S7 edge.
You’re eyeing up the Samsung Galaxy S7, but you find its looks too pedestrian? We don’t necessarily agree, but let’s say for the sake of argument that you’re right. No worries, Samsung’s got you covered – meet the Galaxy S7 edge.Flagships come in pairs, that’s the recent trend and in the case of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge they share a good bit of the internals. Which is another way of saying that the edge has a bigger battery, and that’s it.
Then again it has a larger display. And it’s that display, that gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED spilling over the sides, that’s the real difference between the two, and the sole reason why one would pay the premium and pick the S7 edge and not the S7.
Huawei Nexus 6P
Last year, a dramatic change came to Google’s Nexus offering. The upper-mid range phone that was the Nexus 5 was replaced by a premium and much more expensive model made by Motorola. Skip time ahead about a year to this fall and we are offered a true premium package with a significantly lower price tag. The Nexus 6P is beautifully designed by Huawei to please both power users and average users alike.Last year’s Motorola Nexus 6 was a huge hit, literally. Unfortunately the phablet did not age well, the price of Motorola’s offering was too high from the start then fell too low at the end of its life cycle. This year, Google decided to do two things differently with the Nexus release: launch and sell Nexus phones exclusively on the brand new Google Store, and release two Nexus phones offering the same experience in two different models of hardware, one larger and more powerful than the other, lower cost model.
Huawei and Google conceived a perfect sequel to the Nexus 6 – it’s the first time Huawei is on board the Nexus program as well but their track record of excellent premium phones has positioned them as an ideal choice for a Google hardware partner.
The 6P offers a perfect balance of premium feel, software experience, and attention to detail without skimping out in other aspects (such as the camera experience or build quality).
