The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a phone that initially looks just like the S6 from last year - but pick it up and you'll see there's a world of difference, plus it's been through some delightful cost drops of late.
Firstly, the rear of the phone feels much nicer thanks to a curved back (through a process called 3D Thermo Forming), it's now water resistant and a microSD slot is a welcome feature to return, after it was dropped last year.
The camera is just brilliant - it's lower in megapixels but improved in quality. You'll get brilliant pictures time and again, and you'll want to keep trying it in different scenarios. It's a great phone that you'll be happy to pull out of your pocket.

- What's next? The new Samsung Galaxy S8 looks set to be announced at its own event, skipping MWC 2017, in New York - and come with a redesigned shell and AI on board. A headphone jack does seem likely to be appearing though, in a show of defiance over Apple's 'courage' - but with USB-C and no S Pen.
