Samsung Galaxy Note 7 officially unveiled by Samsung in 2nd August, this year. The Samsung Galaxy flagship is equipped with various high end features that we have seen in many handsets this year. Its design and internal display make it look almost similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S7. In this post, we will compare Note 7 with the previous year’s Apple flagship, iPhone 6s Plus.
In general, most Galaxy Note models feature a 5.7 inches Super AMOLED Quad HD display. AS usual, it remained same in the Galaxy Note 7 version as well. The only inclusion is a dual edge display. The handset comes with a resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels and pixel density of 518 PPI. On the other hand, the previous year’s Apple flagship, iPhone 6s Plus comes with a 5.5 inches Full HD IPS LCD pressure-sensitive display with a pixel density of 401 PPI. Though the iPhone model has a less pixel density as well as a smaller screen, still experts are voting it for the presence of LCD screen and Apple display pedigree.
Apple iPhone 6s Plus comes in an all metal design and feature a Finger print scanning technology while Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes in a glass design in both front and back. This suggests that the Samsung handset is more finger print prone. Moreover, if the glass breaks due to misuse or due to an accident then it would be a costly to replace. However, since the glass is Gorilla Glass, the chance of glass damage is very less. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also features an IP68 rating water resistant technology, which means the phone will be still working if it is left in 1 meter water for up to thirty minutes. The Samsung Smartphone also features a built in S-Pen and Iris scanner. As far as design is concerned, the Samsung flagship has more to offer than the Apple flagship.
Galaxy Note 7 houses a rear camera of 12 MP and a front camera of 5 MP. We know that Samsung cameras are great to shoot even in a place with poor lighting. Similarly, iPhone 6S is going to feature a 12 MP OIS rear camera in the back and 5 MP Retina Flash camera in the front. Apple camera is renowned for being outstanding. iPhone 6s Plus has a camera aperture of f/2.2 lens compared to Note 7’s camera aperture of f/1.7 lens. Both the flagships have a brief potential camera pedigree. As far as aperture is concerned, it seems Galaxy Note 7 features a better camera package than its counterpart, iPhone 6s Plus.
Galaxy Note 7 is backed up by a non removable Li- Po battery of 3500 mAh on the other hand, iPhone 6s Plus features a non removable Li-Po battery of 2750 mAh. Clearly, Samsung is the winner, if we compare the battery capacity.
As usual, the iPhone handset runs in iOS 9 Operating System, while the Galaxy flagship bearer runs in the Android Marshmallow Operating System along with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. Since Android offers more flexibility than iOS, it is easy to conclude who the winner is!
The iPhone model is powered by A9 and M9 processors and comes with internal storage of 16 / 64 / 128 GB along with 2 GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy Note flagship is powered by Octa core Exynos 8890 processor for international models and powered by Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor for US models. The 4 GB RAM handset has internal storage capacity of 64 GB which can be extended up to 256 GB externally. The Apple flagship does not support any external storage.
