MWC 2016 Best In Show: Galaxy S7, LG's G5, More

Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung's stunning Galaxy S7 metal-and-glass design is a state-of-the-art smartphone that packs a serious punch. The smartphone has an impressive quad HD screen, potent 12-megapixel camera, zippy Snapdragon 820 processor, and a bigger battery than last year's model. It's waterproof for protection against drops into the toilet (ew), brings back support for memory cards, and ships with the latest version of Android. About the only thing to dislike is the price tag at $670.

Re: Pricey FZs
@Susan: There are, but they aren't half as attractive (or marketable as the iPhone) as the iPhone is.

Pricey FZs
"The FZ smartphones are a pricey $1,500 each."< which means there are other smartphones more expensive than the iPhone. /Susan
