We’ve previously talked about the beauty and finesse of the Samsung Galaxy C5. Its larger sibling, the Galaxy C7 is no different. With minor schematic differences from its sibling, the Galaxy C7 is definitely gearing up to be one of Samsung’s most proud sons in coming times.
The C7 is made for those who love a big screen. That being said, it features a respectable 5.7 inches 1080p HD resolution touchscreen, an Octa-Core 2.0 GHz processor, massive 4GB of RAM while two excellent snappers in the from of a 16 megapixel primary and 8 megapixel selfie camera. We’re undoubtedly thrilled by what the C7 has to offer.

At the start of this post, we mentioned something about the Note7 getting cancelled for good. That has indeed turned out to be the case as Samsung just couldn’t sort its feet out despite making an official voluntary call-back for all devices sold thus far and then re-releasing them. So, that brings all the onus back on the Note5 and it’s still Samsung’s latest Note device.
The Note5 doesn’t really seems to be a device launched a year ago because of its supreme looks complimented by some wonderful specs underneath the hood. These include a gorgeous 1440p HD 5.7 inches Super AMOLED display, a 16 megapixel primary camera with OIS, 4 gigs of RAM with 32/64/128GB internal storage variants while also having an all-round pleasing build quality.

We here at PriceOye are big fans of Samsung’s A series. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed their light weighted, glossy aluminum build frames from 2015 to their superiorly built dual front and back glass panels build quality nowadays. So, we felt the need to feature at-least one other A-team member and there was no one better than the A5 2016 for that honour.
The Galaxy A5 2016 is another sumptuously built smartphone whose story just won’t end on its looks but will also penetrate right through its schematics as well. Statistically speaking, the A5 2016 features an excellent 5.2 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080p HD resolution, an Octa-Core processor with 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel primary snapper with OIS as well as a fingerprint scanner and Fast Charge technology all within a 7.3mm width!
#2 Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

If you were waiting for this baby, we’re sorry to keep you waiting this long. One of the most impressive smartphones ever, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were the sole reason Samsung maintained its iron grip atop the smartphone ladder. Just look at the picture, drink it in and think about what a fine piece of art this smartphone is.We felt the need to mention the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge together because both of the smartphones are of similar pedigree except for the fact that the S6 Edge costs around 7,000-10,000 rupees more because of its Edge display capability.
Both the smartphones feature a 16 megapixel OIS primary camera, Octa-Core processor with 3GB of RAM, Fast Charge and fingerprint scanning as well as some of the deadliest of looks out there in the smartphones gallery.

#1 Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
Price: ~Rs. 54,000 and 64,000
If the Galaxy Note7 would had existed, we would had found ourselves in real trouble in deciding who deserves top spot in this particular compilation. Sadly, the Note7 is no longer with us so there was never any doubt as to who would clinch the gong as to Samsung’s best smartphone as of 2016; the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Just like the S6 and S6 Edge, we found the latest Samsung flagships to be indispensable from one another. When the Galaxy S6 came along, it was really hard to fathom how would the South Korean giants improve upon that. Just like always, the company made no mistake and proved us wrong yet again.
With a wide arsenal of some of the most modern features that include dust and waterproofing, a state of the art 12 dual-pixel primary camera capable of shooting some of the very best low-light photo and videography, an excellent 5.1 inches 1440p Super AMOLED curved display for the S7 Edge and a similar but no-curved one for the S7 among numerous other features, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge epitomize beauty and power combined.
With that, we’ve spotted the red light for this particular post regarding the best Samsung smartphones as of 2016 in Pakistan. All the aforementioned devices are some of the very best smartphones out there in the market and Samsung will just not stop here as the Galaxy On8, On Nxt, Galaxy C9 and many others are soon to follow suit.
