#GalaxyS7 #iPhone7iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7: Specs, Features and Prices Compared : With Apple’s iPhone 7 now out in the market, comparison with Samsung’s 2016 flagship smartphone – the Galaxy S7 – is simply unavoidable. Samsung Galaxy S7 is widely considered to be the best Android alternative to the iPhone 6S since its release earlier this year.

But now Apple has a brand new phone to rival it – the iPhone 7. The phone goes on sale Friday and is being touted as one of the best smartphones money can buy. So how do the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7, which will be competing as the two best iOS and Android handsets on the market, compare?


In terms of appearance, both are two of the most attractive smartphones on the market right now. “Either one would be in the final of a smartphone beauty pageant and the judges would have a hard time picking a winner”, writes Stuff

The report further says that the phone’s “metal edges and solid glass rear scream premium, both in and out of your hands”. Now iPhone 7 appears similar to the last one and is still good looking.

Featuring a round, anodised aluminium casing that looks neater than the one on the iPhone 6S, it’s exactly the same size and shape as its predecessor. Both phones are water and dust resistant but the S7 is the sturdier phone – it has an IP68 rating compared to the iPhone 7’s IP67 protection.


Samsung takes lead here as the iPhone is marginally smaller than Galaxy S7. The 4.7ins display of iPhone 7 can’t match the 5.1ins panel of Samsung Galaxy S7. Apple iPhone 7 still uses LCD Retina displays, with a resolution of 750 x 1334 and a pixel density of 326ppi.

This one is said to be 25 per cent brighter and the new wide colour gamut means you should see brighter, more vibrant tones. The iPhone 7’s display has pressure-sensitive 3D Touch too which can be used for shortcuts and peeking into apps without loading them up.

The Galaxy S7 is an AMOLED phone featuring a 1,440 x 2,560 resolution with a pixel density of 577ppi. According to Alphr, it’s simply “one of the best displays you can get on a smartphone right now”.
