The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is literally on fire and there’s no better way to put it. This has forced the South Korean company to discontinue the product for 2016, giving brands like Google and Apple the perfect opportunity to move up the market ladder.

Majority of the tech circuit was confident about the success of this year’s Samsung flagship Note product, probably the best Android phone made till date. But fortunes have taken a dramatic turn going against Samsung.

So, for those who bought the Galaxy Note 7, or were planning to buy it, these are some other high-end options that can fill the huge void for you.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is just like its predecessor, the S6 Edge – beautiful, well-crafted and gorgeous. Samsung has made maximum utilisation of the glass and metal finish with this phone.

It’s bound to grab your attention, the moment you’ll take it out of your pocket. The 5.5 Inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Display on the S7 edge is great and what you expect from a flagship smartphone.

The 10 follows a safe, somewhat derivative design evolution instead of trying something new.

It’s well-built and premium-feeling in the hand, and there’s just that tiny bit of design flair with the pronounced chamfered edge around the rear and bordering the screen’s Gorilla Glass cover. This is a great phone for HTC fans who’ve been waiting for a stellar device to come by, and it gets most things right.

OnePlus 3

OnePlus has not just toned down the hype surrounding its products, such as getting rid of the much cursed invite system, but has learnt from its mistakes with regard to the OnePlus 2 and the X, to truly become a “flagship killer”.

Its omissions are minor and don’t detract from the fact that this is a fantastic smartphone. OnePlus’ measured and balanced approach has worked.


Samsung Galaxy Note 5

The Note 5 is the practical alternative to discontinued Galaxy Note 7.

Not only does it come out to be a bit cheaper, but it also offers the genuinely useful S-Pen capabilities as compared to the other Galaxy S phones.This truly is Android’s equivalent of the iPhone
