It’s not a surprise that Samsung and Apple have once again managed to secure the top spots for their latest flagship devices. The smartphone market has grown accustomed to having a device from the Galaxy series as a top contender in the handset arena, same as Apple’s iPhone. This year, the devices that caught the attention of consumers worldwide were the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.
Although the handsets are astounding on their own, both the Korean tech manufacturer and the Mac creator have managed to push the envelope even further with enhanced versions of their flagships. That being said, in this article we will be going over what users can expect from the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, and which is better suited for their needs. It is to be noted that the Galaxy phone features Android while the iPhone operates through iOS, meaning that the experience between the two is guaranteed to be different right from the start.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a pretty big display that measures 5.5 inches, supporting a max resolution of 2560 x 1440. The screen offers great quality and more than that, manages to surpass that of the iPhone 7 Plus in terms of resolution, with the Apple device offering a max resolution of 1920 x 1080. The iPhone’s screen also measures 5.5 inches, so the Galaxy S7 Edge takes the, well, edge. The most important differences between the two devices is that the Samsung phone features a curved display with the Edge technology on both sides of the screen.
Samsung’s flagship offers 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. If it’s not enough you could always bump the capacity up thanks to the microSD support. The processing tasks are handled by the handset’s 1.6 GHz octa core CPU. The device features a 12 MP rear camera paired with a 5 MP front shooter. There is also a 3600 mAh battery which keeps everything running.
In Apple’s camp , the iPhone 7 Plus features the same 32 GB of internal storage but only 3 GB of RAM. With a quad core processor in the form of the A10 Fusion, the iPhone is capable of handling quite the processing load. The device comes with a 12 MP and 7 MP camera combo for the rear and front cameras respectively. The device also has an inferior battery unit with 2900 mAh.
While the Apple device is a pretty sturdy and very capable device on its own, offering performance and security through its closed OS, the Android operated Galaxy S7 Edge features the innovative Edge technology for its display and just overall better components.
