Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 7 Design
Apple is pushing its huge design changes in 2017 that simply means that iPhone 7 might look totally different from its previous predecessors. There are also some points that indicate that Apple is concentrating on removing the physical home button and will embed a digital alternative and Touch ID on the screen itself, but it is still not clear that this change will take effect in iPhone 7 or only after Apple iPhone 8.
Same thing Samsung has also done with the design of Galaxy s7 because it simply looks like advancement of Galaxy s6. The rumor mill indicates that Samsung will apply its major changes in the model from galaxy S8 and foldable galaxy X. The most notable changes were an addition of IP68 waterproofing and MicroSD card slot in S7. Galaxy S7 is pretty much of the same size that of Galaxy S6. In comparison with this Galaxy, the s7 edge is more versatile in design because of implementation of curved edge display and a much larger display compared to simple galaxy S7.
Some murmuring also indicates that Apple will be revert to classic things that made it as a brand in smartphone industry i.e. Killer designs. As per these rumors iPhone7 will provided with a revised antenna design which might be the only major inclusion in iPhone 7 along with dual lens camera setup on the device.
Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 7 Display
Apple iPhone 7 could have a higher display in the specification a QHD display with the resolution of 2560*1440. This resolution is on many android smartphones already and Galaxy S7 has also had the same. If going for sizes iPhone 7 should have the screen size of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches for plus versions.
As Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge both have QHD display with super amped display and also both consist of Samsung’s new Always on Display (AOD) that is OLED display switch on few specific pixels to show exact information while in the sleep state. This is for low battery consumption and allows to show date, time and some notifications, although I have seen that this feature was available in OnePlus One years ago.
To compete with Samsung a Quad HD 4K resolution can be found in iPhone 7 and also featured with force touch that is already found in apple watches. So it can be seen that in the aspect of display both Samsung galaxy S7 and iPhone 7 gets equal points for resolutions and other features.
The Force Touch feature on Apple Watch is similar to a right mouse click in Windows. It allows you to quickly access contextually-specific options on the watch.
Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 7 Camera
It is known as a basic and the main feature of any smartphone either it be Apple or Samsung, to have the ability to take pictures. Samsung S7 has featured with the so-called best android camera of 12 MP rear and 5 MP front one.
Apple has the exact answer for this one and that too strong one. Apple iPhone 7 is featured with 12 MP iSight camera and 5 MP Facetime HD camera with retina flash. The iPhone 7 plus is supposed to have a dual lens camera with it and iPhone 7 will come with “Optical Image Stabilization” and 4K reading ability.
Here also a tie between the iPhone 7 and Samsung galaxy S7 in the aspect of the camera, but Apple has an add-on feature of 4K recording that can beat Samsung Galaxy S7 here.
Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 7 CPU, RAM, and Storage
As iPhone 7 is featured with a latest A10 processor that is more powerful than A9 and gives performance 90% better than iPhone 6s in the aspect of gaming and streaming etc. It is also featured with 2GB ram and 32 GB storage with possible extension up to 264GB. But there is still no MicroSD slot there to expand memory in iPhone 7.
When comparing Samsung galaxy S7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it will be dominated as Galaxy S7 comes with 8GB ram and work on the 64bit Exynos processor. It might be greater than your computer’s processor and RAM. The best advantage of the Galaxy S7 is that it provides 32 GB storage capacity along with a MicroSD slot which let you increase storage up to 256 GB similar as iPhone.
