The iPhone 6S Plus has been released in September 2015, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is expected to hit the stores sometime next month. Today we’re going to compare these two handsets and let you decide which one suits your needs better.
The iPhone 6S Plus measures 158.2×77.9×7.3mm and weights 192 grams. The new model is identical to its predecessor, as it comes with an aluminum body that is made of a tougher alloy, which made it a bit thicker, but there’s a new color option that women love: Rose Gold. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is thicker and lighter, as it measures 150.9×72.6×7.7mm and weights 157 grams. Also, this model is taller than the previous Galaxy S6 Edge, but it uses the same design: glass on the back and a curved metallic frame. However, the new flagship is dust and water resistant, likewise the Galaxy S5.
The iPhone 6S Plus has an IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401 ppi. The Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a super AMOLED display that will support a higher resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 534 ppi.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The iPhone 6S Plus has an Apple A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister processor clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 and 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy S7 Edge will feature either a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset with 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, Adreno 530 graphics, 4GB of RAM card or an Exynos 8890 Octa chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.6GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, a Mali-T880 MP12 graphics card and 4GB of RAM, depending on the region where the device is sold.
The iPhone 6S Plus comes in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, which can’t be expanded. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 Edge will be available in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, with the possibility of expanding their capacity up to 200GB using a microSD card.
The iPhone 6S Plus sports a primary camera of 12MP (found on the rear side of the handset) that features dual-LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging, HDR, smile detection and a secondary camera of 5MP (found on the front side of the smartphone). The Galaxy S7 Edge will come with a 12MP primary camera that will offer autofocus, OIS, LED flash, geo-tagging, HDR, panorama, touch focus and a secondary camera of 5MP.
Both devices come with non-removable batteries, but the one found on the iPhone 6S Plus is smaller, supporting a capacity of only 2750 mAh, while the Galaxy S7 Edge will be powered by a 3600 mAh battery.
