If you’re a conspiracy theory kind of guy (or girl), you can probably never be persuaded of the impartiality of online tech reviewers. If a certain gadget gets too much love from media outlets, you may automatically suspect money was involved in jacking up scores, including in nearly impossible to manipulate tests.

If however a new phone is panned by pundits, it’s because X is a fanboy of the Y company, or just a hater of the Z brand. There’s no winning when skepticism enters the equation, but that’s what independent, not-for-profit associations are for.

Already, the US-based Consumer Reports weighed in on the devices it believes to be the absolute best handhelds in the world, and now, five separate nonpartisan organizations across the old continent chime in with extremely similar informed opinions.

UK’s Which, a 1957-established magazine published by the Consumers’ Association, awards the Samsung Galaxy S7 a nearly perfect score of 93 out of a possible 100 points, with the S7 Edge a very close second, at 92.

That 93 mark, of course, is the registered charity’s “highest ratings ever”, and it’s based on the phone’s “fantastic” design, camera, battery, SD memory card slot, and water and dust resistance.

Meanwhile, Que Choisir in France (which literally translates “What to Choose”), Spain’s OCU-Compra Maestra, Belgium’s Test Aankoop, and the prestigious Dutch Consumentenbond (CB) consumer protection promoters all think the S7 Edge eclipses its Android and iOS-based rivals in overall image quality, camera, performance, design and usability. Where’s the conspiracy now, non-believers?
