THE GALAXY S7 VS THE IPHONE 6S
HOW MUCH BETTER WILL THE GALAXY S7 BE THAN AN IPHONE 6S?
It’s one of the most highly anticipated mobile releases arriving this year and if the Samsung Galaxy S7 can indeed deliver on what it’s already promising, then they’re bound to have a sure-fire hit handset on their hands. But whilst it already looks set to put other mobiles on the market to shame, how does Samsung’s latest flagship handset compare to that of Apple’s iPhone 6S on paper?
PERFORMANCE & SPEED
You can now order the Samsung Galaxy S7 from Mobile Phones Direct and this feature packed new handset on the face of things looks to have a lot going for it. The S7 will run with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 boosting its performance by 30% and coupled with its 4GB of ram its far superior than Apple’s 6S which will still use its A9 chip with just 2GB of ram.
Not much has changed with Samsung’s new screen which means it’s still using AMOLED technology for those deeper and richer shades of black, something that the Apple 6S doesn’t currently offer. However the one thing the 6S does offer is the 3D touch element which is able to detect screen pressure to better preview certain features on the phone.
It’s fair to say that the best feature of the iPhone 6S is certainly not its battery life and the Galaxy S6 suffered from the same problem. Thankfully this looks like it may have been rectified in the upgrade as Samsung are now introducing a sizable 3,000 mAh cell battery which is a massive 75% step up from what Apple can currently offer. With all the other features and battery draining highlights that the new S7 will bring with it it’s good to see that Samsung have readdressed the balance.
With the iPhone 6S offering a trio of capacity options for its users, which includes a 16GB, 64GB and a 128GB version, there shouldn’t be any problem for Apple fans to have the in-phone space necessary for hosting as many apps, songs, phone and videos they wish. Sadly though the new S7 can only muster 32GB of internal storage and it won’t be adopting Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s storage feature. There will a 64GB version but that won’t be arriving for some time.
Samsung have improved its camera allowing you to shoot in low light even better than before thanks mostly to its 12 megapixel sensor that helps it let in more light via capturing larger pixels. The iPhone 6S is no slouch either when it comes to its camera capabilities which offers quick and simple ways to take quick snaps whilst also offering camera enthusiasts a few more professional-styled options to further enhance their photographs.
So things may not be that clear cut with both phones having their own strengths and weaknesses. But as part of the next generation the Samsung definitely has the Edge so make sure you order your Samsung Galaxy S7 now from only £29.99 a month.
