    The Samsung Galaxy S7 is yet again, one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2016. The company may not sell as many flagships as it did a few years ago, but that doesn't mean that its device sales still dwarf every other smartphone OEM in the world.

    The LG G5 is expected to be one of the hottest phones of 2016. There are tons of rumors that point to the company playing with a bold new design that might be smart enough to cause some disruption in the market. LG continues to be one of the few companies, if not the only one that still believes in bringing power-user expandability to its users. Hopefully the LG G5 will prove that the company will continue that legacy, and if not, then it proves that the company needs to re-think its approach for the future.

This is Pocketnow Fitness. --- Even though Android Wear is still far from the popularity of products like FitBit, we get constant questions on ...
