The battle between Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 6s Plus could be a little unfair as Samsung Galaxy Note 7 hasn’t been released in the domestic and international market. The simple fact that a lot of users are now accustomed to the features of iPhone 6s does not put up a fair competition for Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
However, we are familiar with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 features and will help you understand the features of both the smartphones before we leave you to splurge on these expensive gadgets.
Body and Display
Appearances make lasting impressions. This statement is valid even for smartphones. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes with a 5.7 inch display which is bigger than iPhone 6s Plus’s 5.5 inch display. Note 7 wins here as the size of the phone is less than that of 6s Plus which means a greater body to screen ratio. iPhone 6s plus at 192g is heavier than Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at 169g.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a corning gorilla glass 5 for protection, whereas iPhone 6s Plus has better protection with its ion strengthened oleo phobic touchscreen. Both of multitouch features. iPhone 6s Plus scores big for its 3D touch and zoom display. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has given a skip on this much desired feature, however, it has taken a step ahead in providing maximum protection by making the device water resistant and dust proof. It also has a stylus unlike 6s Plus.
It goes without saying much that iPhone 6s Plus runs on iOS 9.3.3 which is upgradable to iOS 10, so that’s a promising feature. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with an Android 7.0 Nougat update. This could mean the users might face issues regarding accessibility and network. 6s Plus uses A9 chipset, which was manufactured by Samsung, causing a low battery glitch whereas Note 7 has a Exynos Octa chip, which is considered to deliver high performance.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has dual quad core processors: 2.3 GHz Mongoose and 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53, which makes the device super fast. Let’s hope that the hanging issue of Samsung phones will be solved with this experimentation.
Samsung phones will always have an advantage in this sector has iPhones do not have any feature of card slots and carry their own memory. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a card slot of 256 GB along with 64GB phone memory and 4GB internal RAM. Now isn’t that a vast repository. iPhone 6s Plus has 2GB internal RAM with 16GB/64GB/128GB phone memory options.
Camera for both devices is similar, i.e., a 12 MP rear camera and a 5MP secondary camera. However, 6s Plus seems to weigh down Galaxy Note 7 with its bulk of additional features like dual tone flash, better sensor device, HDR recording and face detection for secondary. Summing it up, the iPhone 6s plus camera is slightly better than Galaxy Note 7.
Let’s move on to the special features of Galaxy Note 7. It beats iPhone 6s on its various high-tech sensors like iris scanner (which ensures even better security), heart rate recorder and SpO2 as opposed to the common features like temperature, barometer, proximity, accelerometer, etc. The special sensors aim to make Galaxy Note 7 a smoother and secured device.
Both the smartphones adapt HTML 5 browser, but 6s Plus uses version Safari, which hasn’t proved to run smoothly and fails to open web pages. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a faster charging battery which also comes with wireless charging in some markets. It also comes with ANT+ support that means with the additional sensors installed in the system you can be updated about your health and fitness monitoring.
The battery life of Galaxy Note 7 with 3500 mAh is better than 6s Plus’s 2750 mAh. Other tests and features can be well understood only after Galaxy Note 7 is launched in the market. To conclude, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 does stand a better chance than iPhone 6s Plus, but only after using we can state the performance of Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
