    Conclusion
    Samsung has tweaked the winning design from the S6, righted the wrongs of its previous flagships, and made a phone you don't want to put down.The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a worthy recipient of a five-star techradar review. That's no easy feat – only a handful of phones have ever hit the top mark – but the Galaxy S7 has earned its place in our hall of fame.Is it worth the upgrade? If you're coming out of a two-year contract and you're looking for a flagship smartphone, then absolutely – the Galaxy S7 will blow your two-year-old handset out of the water. As long as you're comfortable with the price – and it really is worth it – then you won't look back.For those considering trading in their Galaxy S6 (or other 2015 flagship), the case isn't quite as strong. The S6 still has a great screen, dazzling camera and plenty of power, so the step up may not feel big enough.That said, the Galaxy S7 improves on pretty much every aspect of the S6, making it the best phone in the world right now, alongside the larger Galaxy S7 Edge. If money isn't an issue, the Galaxy S7 will justify the outlay – but the more cash-conscious may want to hold out for the Galaxy S8.Not convinced? Then check these out instead:Samsung Galaxy S7 EdgeLike the look of the Galaxy S7 but fancy a bigger, curved display? Then you'll want the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Apart from the size and shape of their screens, these two handsets are identical.The S7 Edge will set you back a bit more, but you get more screen real estate to play with, slightly better battery life, a futuristic look and Samsung's Edge screen interface, which now has more going for it than the S6 Edge's slightly lackluster implementation.It's worth bearing in mind, though, that as well as being cheaper, the Galaxy S7 is also easier to use one handed.The decision really comes down to personal preference, and whichever handset you pick you won't be disappointed.Read our Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge reviewiPhone 7Samsung's biggest rival is Apple, and now there's another '7' in town, thanks to Apple offering an all-new upgrade to play with.The iPhone 7 provides a fresh challenge for the S7 with it, too, being waterproof, and offering dual speakers to give a more multi-dimensional listening experience.The 7 has a smaller 4.7-inch display which is isn't even full HD, and its flat back means it doesn't sit quite as snugly in the palm. Its iOS 10 interface, though, is fluid, and it even seems to be a match for the S7 when it comes to raw power, according to our tests.Sadly, battery life still isn't as strong on the iPhone 6S, but Apple's interface is arguably more intuitive than Samsung's TouchWiz – although that's very much a matter of opinion.It's a more expensive phone, that's for sure - and if you've not already jumped to iOS, chances are this still won't be enough of an upgrade to tempt you. Read: iPhone 7 review HTC 10HTC is always a brand that's in the same arena as Samsung, no matter what happens. With a similar spec list - QHD, cutting edge processor and loads of RAM to play with.It's also one of the few top-end phones to feature adoptable storage, meaning you can plop in a memory card and use it as internal memory - which is a big help when you're worried about running low.And once again there's the premium HTC design on show - the chamfered edges are 'sculpted by light' so when you put it face down on a table it catches random gleams to get the best out of the visuals.And the headline feature has to be the audio performance - it's insanely good over headphones, and recording 4K video at a gig is almost professional grade. A sterling performer.Read: HTC 10 review OnePlus 3TThe new phone from the Chinese manufacturer is now even newer - with a slightly higher price tag, and a 128GB option as well. It still offers great value with a low price on top of heaps of power (up to Snapdragon 821), offering the same processor and an AMOLED screen, a premium design that's up there with the best of them and a clever interface.The camera is decent enough - perhaps not as good as the flagships it wants to rival as its low light performance isn't the best - but for most scenarios it's pretty darn good.This is (still) a low-cost phone with high-end power - one for the discerning phone buyer. Read: everything to know about OnePlus 3T LG G5The LG G5 offers up a more revolutionary flagship experience than its rivals, including the Galaxy S7.While many comparisons can be drawn between the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6S, the G5 offers a modular design and a removable battery, increasing the functionality of the device.Its 5.3-inch display means it's bigger than the S7, but its all-metal body feels more premium in the hand, and on the back it boasts two cameras. These work independently of one another, with one offering 16MP snaps and the other sporting a wide-angle 8MP lens.The G5 may not ship in as high volumes as the Galaxy S7, and the battery life isn't as good, but its unique appeal still makes it a head-turner.Read: LG G5 review Samsung Galaxy S6At the end of the day the Samsung Galaxy S7 is essentially just an iteration of the Galaxy S6 – it just happens to be a very good iteration.The Galaxy S6 has now dropped in price, and while you don't get a waterproof body or microSD slot, there's still a top-notch camera, dazzling display and more power than you can shake a stick at.The thing is, you'll know in the back of your mind that there's a better option out there. The Galaxy S7 addresses the issues with the S6 to make an even better smartphone – and that thought may eat away at you. Read: Samsung Galaxy S6 review First reviewed: March 2016
