Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Wins the Best Smartphone at MWC 2017

That is right. Samsung was just awarded the best smartphone category at the recently-concluded Mobile World Congress 2017 event in Barcelona, Spain. the South Korean electronics company made the announcement via press release saying that the Galaxy S7 Edge has just been recognized by the GSMA as "The Best Smartphone of 2016" in the Best Mobile Handsets and Devices category at the annual Global Mobile Awards at MWC 2017.

It is no dispute that the current Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is definitely one of the best smartphones around since its debut in 2016. The design, camera, and performance of the smartphone are definitely the driving forces for this particular phone to bag this special award that many smartphone makers out there are more than happy to accept.

"We are honored to be recognized for our craftsmanship in design and innovation with the Galaxy S7 edge," said Junho Park, Vice President of Global Product Strategy, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. "This award is a testament to our constant pursuit of excellence as we continue to exceed consumers' expectations through revolutionary mobile technology." he added. 

 According to a post on AndroidCentral, the other phones nominated for this category were the iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel XL, Huawei P9, and the Moto Z. All were great phones of the year 2016 and are still up to this date, but someone has to really take the spot for the best smartphone of that year, and it's Samsung's dual-edged S7 flagship.

Samsung did not launch any banner bearing smartphone at this year's Mobile World Congress like it used to have done in the past. But has already confirmed that the follow up flagship smartphone will be officially revealed on March 29, 2017 in New York. Rumors suggest that new devices will be called Galaxy S8 and the bigger Galaxy S8+. And based on the leaks and rumors so far about these hotly-anticipated smartphones, looks like Samsung is to get numerous awards again for these installments in the coming months of the year, most likely at MWC 2018 as well next year.
