iPhone 6S has been released last fall, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 is about to hit the stores sometime this month. As you all know, Apple and Samsung are two rival companies that try to release better and better devices in order to attract customers. Today we’re going to compare the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S7 and let you decide which one is better for you.
The iPhone 6S measures 138.3×67.1×7.1mm and weights 143 grams. It looks identical to the iPhone 6, but it’s a bit thicker because Apple has used a more durable aluminum allow, which no longer bends. Also, women can opt for the Rose Gold color option, which is pretty nice. The Samsung Galaxy S7 measures 142.4×69.6×7.9mm and weights 152 grams, and its design is also identical to its predecessor: shiny glass back and metal frame.
The iPhone 6S comes with an IPS LCD display of 4.7-inch supporting a resolution of 1334×750 pixels at 326 ppi and it’s protected by an ion-strengthened glass. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 577 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It is known that Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology makes the colors more vibrant, but they’re draining the battery pretty fast.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The iPhone 6S features an Apple A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister processor clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 GPU and 2GB of RAM. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S7 comes in two variants of chipsets, processors and graphics cards:
– an Exynos 8890 Octa chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 2.3GHz and a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.6GHz and a Mali-T880 MP12 graphics card;
– a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, a quad-core processor formed from a dual-core Kryo processor clocked at 2.15GHz and a dual-core Kryo processor clocked at 1.6GHz and an Adreno 530 graphics card.
Both Galaxy S7 variants come with 4GB of RAM.
The iPhone 6S has been released in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, but you can’t expand it as it doesn’t feature a card slot for that. The Galaxy S7 comes in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, which can be expanded up to 200GB using a microSD card.
The iPhone 6S sports a primary camera of 12MP (found on the rear side of the handset) that offers dual-LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus, HDR and a secondary camera of 5MP (found on the front side of the smartphone). On the rear side of the Galaxy S7 device you’ll find a primary camera of 12MP that features OIS, LED flash, autofocus, face detection, geo-tagging, touch focus, auto-HDR, panorama, while a secondary camera of 5MP will be used for taking selfies.
Both devices come with non-removable batteries, but Apple has opted for a very small cell with a capacity of 1715 mAh, which offers around 14 hours of talking time over 3G, while the Galaxy S7 is powered by an average battery of 3000 mAh.
