Apple recently released its latest iPhone with iPhone 7 being the toughest competitor of Galaxy S7. Confused about what to buy and what not to? We will compare both of these smartphones to make things easy for you. It's about Samsung vs Apple, as both companies are famous for their high-end smartphones.
Some of the common differences between iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 are water resistance, faster charging, 3D touch and much more. Let's check which one is better and where?
iPhone 7 still has a 4.7-inch display featuring 3D touch with 1334x750 resolution & wide color gamut. While Galaxy S7 has the AMOLED 5.1-inch display with 2560x1440 resolution.
Apple improved the display quality in its new iPhones by bumping the brightness by 25%. S7's display is more power efficient, and it also has the deeper blacks because of its super AMOLED display.
Newer iPhone is IP67 water, and dust proof whereas Galaxy S7 has IP68 which is simply better than IP67. But it is good that Apple finally added this daily life feature to their new iPhones.
Apple didn't reveal the exact RAM and battery numbers so it is just an assumption that they will have these figures. Apple has improvised in camera, so photography has been enhanced. Better speed and more storage is an adage.
iPhones are popular for the better camera quality than any other brand. Samsung is improving its camera in every model. However, Samsung S7 was the best camera device before the iPhone 7 launch. But what has happened to S7's camera now? iPhone 7 is overtaking the camera line again with its newly announced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. They even added a 7MP camera for the better selfie and video blogs.
A10 Fusion chip is the fastest chip today in terms of performance. This is the only reason iPhone 7 is better than Galaxy S7. S7 uses a Samsung Exynos 8890 chip and the SD820 in USA variants. Apple never shows the complete scores, they always compare their new product with the old product. M10 is embedded in A10 chip to give better output.
A10 has two power efficiency cores which will help new iPhones to work like a boss for a long time.
Galaxy S7 has the 3000mAh battery, whereas the iPhone 7 battery is rated at 1,960mAh. If we do the video playback test, S7's average score is 18 hours while iPhone 7 lasts till approx 14 hours. That means iOS 10 is highly optimized by why Apple didn't use the 2300mah or 2200mah battery? They can manage this to beat the competitors regarding the battery.
Apple has removed the earphone jack which directly means you can't use the wired EarPods and charge up at the same time. Apple wants to promote the wireless accessories. Apple specially released AirPods just to satisfy the users. But don't worry accessories related to this are coming soon.
Galaxy S7 has both of these. Even it supports fast charging to save the precious time.
The base model of iPhone 7 will cost you £599) whereas Galaxy S7 will cost you £569. My vote is to iPhone 7, what do you say?
