Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on 7 September along with the Apple Watch 2 and some major software upgrades for the Apple ecosystem. The announcement comes at a time when Samsung, Apple's closest rival, is battling a recall crisis with its recently released and most coveted phone to date, the Galaxy Note 7.

Despite the recall many analysts who reviewed the Galaxy Note 7 pegged is as one of the best phones of 2016 and probably the best Android phone for the year.
