There is a distinct possibility that when all is said and done in 2016, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge will be the hottest smartphone that was released all year. That’s pretty crazy when you stop to consider the fact that the phone was first released all the way back in March of this year; as fast as technology progresses these days, the best phone of 2016 may end up having been unveiled in the second month of 2016 and released in the third month of the year. The Note 7 might have stolen the S7 edge’s crown, but ExplosiveBallOfFireGate squashed any chances it might would have had, for the time being at least.

If you’re in the market for an unlocked flagship smartphone, there simply isn’t a better option on the market right now. And the good news is that you won’t have to pay anything close to the MSRP.
