The fast, powerful, and beautiful Galaxy S7 phone is definitely 2016's all-around phone to beat. Almost everything about the 5.5-inch S7 Edge excels from the inside out, and Samsung has refined the extra navigation software that dresses up the screen's physical curves.The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a big upgrade over last year's S6 Edge, with nearly every element altered and upgraded in some way, showing the brand is still working out how to best position the jewel in its smartphone crown. Given the S6 Edge swept up nearly every best smartphone award in 2015, will the S7 Edge really be able to match up?
