What a year. You will be hard-pressed to find someone who disagrees with the fact that 2016 has been the most eventful year we’ve seen in a long time.
From the most cringe-worthy video ever being released to advances in technology, countless things have happened. These are the 7 most unbelievable developments that were part of them.

5. Samsung launched a PLUS version of Pakistan’s Best Selling Smartphone of 2015
