Allo and Duo are set to become the Androids answer to iMessage and FaceTime. It rumoured that they will become pre installed and the default communication apps on the next release of Android called Android Nougat. Its also likely that Allo will eventually offer sms support in the same way that Apples iMessage does. I.e, defaulting to text sms format if the apps fails to connect via Allo.
Androids hangouts has not really too off. The app is simply too complex to catch on for the average consumer. Its inevitable that this app will be phased out but over what time frame is debatable.

Samsung has rolled a new Cloud backup service that has the ability to back up everything. The new cloud back up service has already been rolled out to Samsungs flagship phone called the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This backup service will be able to match Apples iCloud backup service which has been able to back up everything for years.
Until now Android phones have not been able to fully backup everything in a simple way. However Googles backup service has improved with the launch of its latest os called Android Marshmallow. Now it will back up apps, photos, contacts and its calendar. But it still lacks a few things, such as the ability to back up sms texts, screen layout and app data for all apps. Currently for Google to be able to back up the data within a particular app, it requires the app to be updated to the latest os and the app developer not cancel the enabled option for Google to store the apps data. There are also many third party backup services available but most are not reliable or too complex for the average none techie consumer to want to use.
Samsung is also rolling the service out to other top end models such as the s7 and the s7 edge. Expect to see the service sometime this August on those models.

The iPhone 7 will be more subtly different than what most bloggers claim. The the difference will be different in subtle ways. Even though it may have a similar casing to the previous model this model will most likely differ in these ways:-
There will be two model on offer iPhone 7 Plus/Pro that will both feature higher resolution displays (possibly 1080p on the iPhone 7 and 2K on the Pro version). The casing will be thinner due to the headphone jack being removed also the new iPhones are likely to offer a 256gb storage option. The processor will most likely be a faster and more powerful next-generation Apple processor. The camera will also be improved, you will see a vast improvement in the quality of the night shots that will most likely rival the Samsung s7. The new pro version will possibly feature a dual camera that will most definitely outshine the Samsung’s Galaxy S7 camera. There will also be a possible colour on offer too that will feature Space Black version.
