The S7
I don't really like how manufacturers are moving onto all glass body. I wish the back was made of contoured glass for proper grip. The reason I still absolutely adore the LG V10 is because of its superior grip it offers. Moreover the TouchWiz hasn't changed.

Re: The S7
Modular phones! The S7 still hasn't brought anything new to the table, which the G5 has. I would say the looks are subjective, some people love it, others hate it, but realistically speaking the G5 doesn't look like a flagship.However they won this race with modularity. I would love to check out the camera module. This phone can actually kill point and shoot cameras. First project Ara and now this. The future of phones is Modularity.

Re: The S7
I agree. Contoured glass makes perfect sense. Or if not contoured glass, they should have atleast added rough swirl patterns like our fingerprints, then atleast we would have the confidence to hold it properly.

Re: The S7
The modules won't come cheap, and this is the reason why it won't be killing point and shoot cameras. The manual mode in G5 is just amazing. I wish the modules were of lower pricing.
