Review of new releases

Wednesday, 13th July, 2016 - 17:28

We have seen plenty of great new releases this year from all the top brands! The Apple iPhone SE was recently launched; we have also seen the HTC 10, LG G5, and Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge go on sale. All of these handsets have received plenty of praise and also some criticism! If you are interested in purchasing one of these handsets it may be worth reading on..

Apple iPhone SE

Pros: Cons:
- Great size and easy to handle (Very similar to the iPhone 5/5s)
- Rose Gold colour is extremely popular
- Great sound quality for a little handset
- Great specs and extremely fast to use (Complete parity with the iPhone 6s)
- The screen bezel is rather wide (don’t get a lot of screen for the size of the phone)
- Screen lacks quality when compare with Samsung handsets

Overall apart from the lack of quality and size of the screen on the iPhone SE this really is a great handset for people who prefer smaller mobile phones!

HTC 10

Pros: Cons:
- Iconic design
- Really fast charging
- Great audio quality
- Best selfie camera on the market
- Poor rear camera when compared with LG G5 and Galaxy S7
- Slightly pinkish tinge to display

The HTC 10 has received glowing reviews but the huge disappointment on this handset has to be the rear camera quality. If you take lots of photos then this may not be the phone for you!


Pros: Cons:
- Amazing screen quality
- Great wide-angle camera
- USB-C Fast charging
- Cool slide off battery port
- Poor build quality
- Software display is ugly

The new battery port and magnesium allow chassis vastly improve the looks of this handset. Overall the LG G5 seems a great purchase; the only downfall is the unattractive software on the handset.

Samsung Galaxy S7

Pros: Cons:
- Stunning looks
- Amazing cameras
- Beautiful display
- Reintroduction of the MicroSD slot & Ip68 water resistance
- Minor exterior changes  (Similar to the S6)
- Poor speaker quality

Apart from the below average speaker quality the Samsung Galaxy S7 really is an amazing handset. The S7 internally and externally is an amazing handset which is well worth the money!
