Do you remember when you saw your first widescreen television? The boxy 4:3 screen was once so ubiquitous, but then it was like you blinked and – bam – widescreen sets were everywhere.

LG got that ball rolling last month at MWC with the launch of the G6, and now Samsung’s hot on its heels with the wildly anticipated Galaxy S8. But while these two phones may share the distinction of being the first with such crazy-wide screens, they’re still two very different handsets. Let’s take a closer look at what makes them tick.

HANDS-ON LENOVO P2 REVIEW: THE BATTERY BEAST

lenovo p2

The Lenovo P2 seems to me a good example of a company that listened to users because, despite this being a smartphone with a very specific niche (the user who wants to spend time with a mobile phone in use), the company has not forgotten the rest. The P2 comes with one of the best in class processors, two RAM variants and a minimum of 32 GB storage. Also, it does not just come with a super battery, but features to save even more energy.

The Galaxy S7 edge is over seven months old now, but that doesn’t mean it has wavered in importance or dropped off the radar of people looking for a high-end phone today.
