The company may have not explicitly called the Galaxy S7 edge a phablet, but if you follow the terms on Wikipedia, any smartphone with a screen sized above 5.1-inches in diagonal can be safely included in this category. Keep in mind thought that this is a category that’s already well dominated by some of our favorite devices of 2015, being the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 edge+.

    Matching the words AT&T with unboxing has historically never been good, but it seems that somebody finally got the memo. For years the whole concept of an unboxing experience has been ignored by AT&T, and for reasons I've never understood. That first impression of any expensive product is everything, and we're glad to see things continue to change for a device this important. The new Samsung Galaxy S7 is probably one of the most anticipated phones of the year, and this time it's not just marketing hype.

    We recently reviewed the Huawei Honor 5X, and found it to be a stylish solution for its $199 price. However, Huawei is bringing more phones to North America, providing shoppers more options at a wider variety of price tiers. The GX8 is an unlocked variation of the international G8, and it sells for $100 more than the Honor 5X.What might we expect for that price difference? We know this internal hardware really well by now. The performance we should expect from a Qualcomm 616, 2GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery shouldn't be much of a surprise. There are other ways to refine a phone though. ...
