    I'm due an upgrade next month but not sure what's the best option: Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Google pixel, or the iPhone 7. I'm not really technically minded when it comes to all the specifics with phones. I'd like access to some good apps of course but overall I need it for internet access and a really good battery.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and I absolutely love it. I would stay away from any phone made by Google or Apple.

    If you need a good battery then definitely don`t go for an iphone, they have the worst battery life.

    I agree with liquidsnake. Either wait for s8, should come out in a month or two. Or then go for pixel now.

    Galaxy S8 won't come until March. It will be accounced at MWC at the end of February. So either get the pixel or s7 edge. Read some reviews and watch some videos about both to see which one is the best decision.

    If I were you I would get the pixel. Why? No bloatware (extra apps companies install and you can't uninstall), phone is super fast to do tasks, it will be updated to the latest operating system for at least the next 1.5/2 years, its camera is one of the best, etc.

    Thanks yeah I'm swayed towards the Google Pixel now. It looks good and offers what I need.

    Thanks

    I really don't like the edge versions, but if the three listed phones are the only choices, then go with the S7. Best one out of the bunch.

    I'm coming up on my upgrade too and I'm leaning towards the Pixel. I like that it get the Android upgrades right away. I have a Galaxy S6 right now and it takes a while to get the new Android, still doesn't have Nougat. That being said I'm happy with the phone and the S8 may get me leaning back to Samsung.

    Only shitter is the S8 won't be released until for a while yet, and I've got a crappy mobile so waiting is not really an option.

    It's not being released for ages here in the Uk, I'm pretty sure about that anyway.

    Yeah I'm interested in the Pixel, but I read the camera's have been fucking up apparently.

    I have very specific requirements for the phones I use besides the typical "fast and works reliably". I got the s7 edge unlocked (935u model) and I am using it on Verizon in the states.

    Requirements it filled for me:
    Signal reception seems better than average (may be similar to an iPhone which is known for having excellent reception)

    Tethering out of the box, no rooting, no installing custom rooms (a big one for me)

    No bloat ware (such as the pixel has none)

    Ip67 rating dust proof, water resistant

    Lte advanced (standard feature on phones now) but it has an indicator (LTE+ on the drop bar vs LTE).

    I'm android biased, but I read loads of issues with the pixels reception, Bluetooth, speakers, etc. Plus I can't tether out of the box. The iPhone is solid for daily use by normal people normally. I just don't like it, or the company so my opinion is strongly bias.
