Back in September 2015, Apple has released its iPhone 6s Plus, which came with some pretty good specifications. Samsung is expected to bring its Galaxy Note 7 sometime in August 2016, which will surely please all phablets fans. Today we will compare these two devices, but keep in mind that the specifications about the Galaxy Note 7 are still “rumored” and NOT confirmed.
The iPhone 6s Plus measures 158.2×77.9×7.3mm and weights 192 grams. It looks exactly like its predecessor, as it features an aluminum body with familiar antenna bands on its back. Also, it’s available in a new variant of color: Rose Gold. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 7 will measure 153.5×73.9×7.9mm and weight 168 grams and will look like the Galaxy S7 Edge, but with a stylus.
The iPhone 6s Plus has a LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401 ppi and it’s protected by ion-strengthened glass. The Galaxy Note 7 comes with a bigger super AMOLED display of 5.7-inch that supports a higher resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 515 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The iPhone 6s Plus features an Apple A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister CPU clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 graphics card and 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy Note 7 will be released in two variants, as follows:
– Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893

– RAM: 4GB or 6GB.
The iPhone 6s Plus has been released in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, but there’s no microSD card slot for storage expansion. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 7 will be released in variants of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, and except for the last one, all models will allow you to add a microSD card and expand the internal memory up to 256GB.
The iPhone 6s Plus sports a primary camera of 12MP that features OIS, dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus, geo-tagging, panorama, touch focus, face detection, HDR and a secondary camera of 5MP. The Galaxy Note 7 will come with a primary camera of 12MP that features OIS, LED flash, phase detection autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, auto HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 5MP.
Both devices are powered by non-removable batteries, but the 2750 mAh one that the iPhone 6s Plus comes with is weaker than the 4000 mAh battery that the Galaxy Note 7 features.
