    Some might consider this a dubious award considering the source, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 just beat out the iPhone as the Consumer Reports Best Smartphone in the World. The publications editor, Mike Gikas, said “These new models aren’t just Samsung’s best smartphones, but, perhaps, the best smartphones. And they now sit atop our Ratings,”

    He was impressed with the phone's water-resistance, battery life, performance and available expandable memory. Strangely, they didn't rate the camera or battery life as highly as previous generations. Still, a win is a win.

    I enjoy my new S7. I take anything Consumers Reports says with a grain of salt.

    Why? They are not beholden to advertiser's influence and test thoroughly. EVERY other website review like CNET and all the major tech sites and companies are beholden to a sponsor or their investments and their editorial policies. Look at droid-life.com now: tons of ads and product push with thinly veiled product endorsements.

    Consumer's is trusted and proven in their independent testing and have no allegiance to any third party.
