Today we’re going to talk about Apple’s iPhone SE and the new Galaxy S7 flagship that Samsung has recently released. We’ll compare these two smartphones and if you like any of them, we suggest you to start saving some money, because they won’t come cheap.
The iPhone SE measures 123.8×58.6×7.6mm and weights 113 grams. Likewise the iPhone 5S, it has an aluminum back with matte edges, and the shape is boxier, not curved as on the iPhone 6S. The Galaxy S7 is thicker and heavier as it measures 142.4×69.6×7.9mm and weights 152 grams and on the back has Corning Gorilla Glass 4, while its sides are protected with an aluminum frame.
The iPhone SE comes with an IPS LCD display of 4-inch that supports a resolution of 1136×640 pixels at 326 ppi. The Galaxy S7 has a bigger super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that supports a higher resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 577 ppi.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The iPhone SE features an Apple A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister CPU clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 graphics card and 2GB of RAM. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 comes in two variants of chipsets, processors and graphics cards, as follows:
– Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 Octa;
– Processor: dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 2.15GHz and a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 1.6GHz or a quad-core Mongoose CPU clocked at 2.3GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.6GHz;
– Graphics Card: Adreno 530 or Mali-T880 MP12.
Both variants of the Galaxy S7 come with 4GB of RAM.
The iPhone SE has been released in two internal storage variants of 16GB and 64GB. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 also comes in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB. The big difference between these two devices is that the iPhone SE doesn’t support a card slot for storage expansion, while the Galaxy S7 allows you to expand the internal memory up to 200GB.
The iPhone SE sports a primary camera of 12MP (located on the rear side of the handset) that features geo-tagging, dual-LED flash, panorama, HDR, touch focus and a secondary camera of only 1.2MP (located on the front side of the device). The Galaxy S7 has a primary camera of 12MP with LED flash, OIS, geo-tagging, touch focus, auto HDR, panorama, face detection and a secondary camera of 5MP.
Both devices come with non-removable batteries, but the 1642 mAh one found on the iPhone SE device is much weaker than the 3000 mAh battery that’s powering the Galaxy S7.
