The Mate 8 is a formidable device. Not only is it Huawei’s latest and greatest phablet, it’s also one of the most powerful ones in the market. Powered by Huawei’s homegrown Kirin 950 processor mated to 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage, the Mate 8 has got more than enough horsepower to run with the big boys.
What’s more, it’s got a much bigger display than a lot of this year’s flagships which puts it at #1 on the list for many who like to consume a lot of video content, browse web pages and play mobile games. But, it is up against some pretty amazing smartphones too.
That said, the Mate 8 does have some tricks up its sleeve that you probably won’t be able to find on many of this year’s flagship smartphones, not even on the mighty Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
Smartphone cameras are getting better in each iteration and the latest Galaxy S7 edge continues to raise the bar higher. Although it was downsized from 16MP to 12MP, the new Galaxy gets a brighter f/1.7 lens, larger pixels and faster focus thanks to its new Dual-Pixel sensor.
DxOMark, the camera benchmark authority has just named the Galaxy S7 edge as the new smartphone champion with an overall score of 88. This knocks out the Xperia Z5, which they previously crowned as the best camera on a smartphone.
Suria KLCC was alive with the sound of roaring fans as Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S7 edge locally, though, we suspect more fans were roaring because of South Korean superstar Lee Kwang Soo, the phone got some hype too I’m sure. Besides the phone launch, Samsung also revealed that two big things would hit our shores later this year — Samsung Pay and the Gear 360.
Samsung‘s greatest flagship device ever — the Galaxy S7 edge — was a long-awaited affair. When we first saw it at MWC 2016, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the device. Well, after a long (it wasn’t that long, but it felt long) wait, it finally came…and I pounced on it.
Bam! Mobile World Congress 2016 passed by like in just a blink of the eye and now we’re suffering from post-congress withdrawals. Not without good reason, by the way. Three (big) smartphone makers released their flagships for this year including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. On a less than positive note, it’s rather sad that we won’t be getting the standard Galaxy S7 in Malaysia.
Although we pretty much knew everything about the two smartphones prior to the South Korean manufacturer taking the MWC floor, we didn’t know how good the camera on the follow-up to the Galaxy S6 flagships would be.
We were eager to find out so we pit the edgy Samsung number against other formidable smartphone cameras.

UPDATE: Samsung Galaxy S7 Malaysian launch is happening on 18th March 2016.
Samsung just announced their latest Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones and if you simply can’t wait to get your hands on one of these devices, there is good news — you might not have to wait too long to buy one locally.
The Mobile World Congress has always been an exciting event for mobile enthusiasts. Tons of new phones, tons of new devices and a whole lot of people. But smartphone manufacturers have begun to hijack the crowd that will be going to MWC and have their own launch event just before it.
Two tech giants have done exactly that — LG and Samsung — but while it was very likely the LG G5 would be revealed on 21 February, we never had any confirmation…until now. LG USA has released three teaser images featuring the number 5 plus a caption reading #LGG5, February 21st. #MWC2016″. #Hype?
Worth noting that LG USA has since removed the tweet. Was it a blunder or an intentional tease?
This means the G5 and Samsung’s dynamic Galaxy S7 duo will go head to head on the same day. While we’ve heard a lot of exciting specs about these two devices, we want to know is, which would you get?

The drama ensues as the Korean manufacturer’s upcoming flagships Galaxy S7s are seen on the Indonesian certification agency equivalent to SIRIM in Malaysia. We already knew the wave of rumours were beginning since we’re halfway into January with MWC 2016 hot on the heels a month away.

With CES and MWC 2016 creeping closer, new reports have developed that suggest Samsung will be releasing a bigger (than normal) Galaxy S7 edge in February – further differentiating it from the Galaxy S7.
