Best Android Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. LG G5 vs. Sony Xperia X

Filed under
Android

The Samsung is going on sale for $800 in March, and while Sony and LG are yet to announce their prices, you can expect them to be in that ballpark.

It’s safe to say that all three phones currently represent the best of what Android has to offer. It also wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say each of the phones would come out favorably in a head-to-head against the best of what Apple has to offer—the five-month-old iPhone 6S.

Each has its individual merits, though in terms of both outstanding specs and originality it’s hard to look past the LG G5. Smartphones these days are getting more and more the same—you only have to look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 alongside the iPhone 6S to see this. To bring modularity to the mainstream is a bold step but one that has paid off, particularly when you consider the potential for new modules to be added in the future.

Goodbye Solaris

  • Guilty SPARC: Oracle euthanizes Solaris 12, expunging it from roadmap
    Rumors have been circulating since late last year that Oracle was planning to kill development of the Solaris operating system, with major layoffs coming to the operating system's development team. Others speculated that future versions of the Unix platform Oracle acquired with Sun Microsystems would be designed for the cloud and built for the Intel platform only and that the SPARC processor line would meet its demise. The good news, based on a recently released Oracle roadmap for the SPARC platform, is that both Solaris and SPARC appear to have a future. The bad news is that the next major version of Solaris—Solaris 12— has apparently been canceled, as it has disappeared from the roadmap. Instead, it's been replaced with "Solaris 11.next"—and that version is apparently the only update planned for the operating system through 2021.
  • Oracle Finally Confirms It's Canning Solaris 12
    At the beginning of December there were rumors of Oracle canning Solaris and now that's finally been confirmed by Oracle more or less as they will not be delivering Solaris 12. According to Ars, they got confirmation from Oracle that they will not be going ahead with Solaris 12 as planned. Solaris 12 has been canceled and wiped off their roadmap. Oracle is said to be working on a "Solaris.next", but no details yet. This "Solaris.next" is also reportedly the only planned Solaris update through 2021.
