Samsung has released its Galaxy S7 flagship in March 2016 and now, it’s preparing to announce its Galaxy Note 7 handset. Today we will compare these two devices and let you decide which one of them suits your needs.
Displays and Designs
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 Galaxy Note 7 will have a bigger super AMOLED display of 5.7-inch that will be curved on both sides and will support the same resolution, but which will result in a lower pixel density of 515ppi. Both devices have a similar design: glass back and metal frame, which was introduced on the Galaxy S6.

The Galaxy S7 has been released in two variants:
