Samsung has released its Galaxy S7 in March 2016, while the iPhone 6s is already nine months old and still very popular. These devices run on totally different operating systems and have different specifications, so if you want to learn more about them, check out this comparison.


The Galaxy S7 measures 142.4×69.6×7.9mm and weights 152 grams. It’s nearly identical to its predecessor, which introduced the glass and metal design that Samsung has used for many other Galaxy models. On the other hand, the iPhone 6s is slimmer and lighter as it measures 138.3×67.1×7.1mm and weights 143 grams. Compared to its predecessor, it’s a bit thicker, but you won’t notice the difference, and the aluminum body has a new color option: Rose Gold.


The 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 4. The iPhone 6s comes with a smaller LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 4.7-inch (just like the iPhone 6) that supports a lower resolution of 1334×750 pixels at 326 ppi and it’s protected by an ion-strengthened glass.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The Galaxy S7 comes in two variants of chipsets, processors and graphics cards, as follows:

– Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890
– Processor: a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 2.15GHz and a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 1.6GHz or a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.6GHz and a quad-core Mongoose CPU clocked at 2.3GHz
– Graphics Card: Adreno 530 or Mali-T880 MP12
– RAM: 4GB.

The iPhone 6s has been released with Apple’s A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister CPU clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 (six-core graphics) graphics card and 2GB of RAM.


The Galaxy S7 has been released in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB which you can expand up to 256GB using a microSD card. The iPhone 6s comes in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, but it doesn’t support a microSD for storage expansion.


The Galaxy S7 sports a primary camera of 12MP that features OIS, LED flash, phase detection autofocus, touch focus, auto HDR, panorama, touch focus, face detection and a secondary camera of 5MP. The iPhone 6s has a primary camera of 12MP that features phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash, face detection, touch focus, HDR, geo-tagging and a secondary camera of 5MP.


The Galaxy S7 is powered by a non-removable battery of 3000 mAh, which is way more powerful than the non-removable battery of 1715 mAh that the iPhone 6s comes with.
