Must Check: Apple iPhone 7 vs. Galaxy S7 Edge: Comparison

Samsung will power its Note 7 flagship with Snapdragon 820 SoC / Exynos 8890, 4GB RAM and Adreno 530 graphics where at the other hand iPhone 7 is rumoured to have 2GB RAM and run on Apple A10 fusion processor. Samsung will have 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display while Apple to boast a 4.7 inch IPS LCD display having 3D touch. Apple iPhone 7 will get Ion-strengthened glass with oleophobic coating however at the other hand you will get Corning Gorilla glass 4 with IP68 standard scratch and water resistance. So, looking at the major specs we can say Samsung Note 7 may have better performance as it will have 4GB RAM and powerful 64bit Exynos 8890 chipset which is one of the fastest processor till now.

As per the rumours Samsung will bring same camera lenses that we have seen with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The Note 7 will have f/1.7 aperture 12 MP camera at back and 5MP at front. However for iPhone, GSMarena has predicted that it will have 12 MP f/2.2 aperture camera and 5MP front camera. The upcoming iPhone will not have 3.5 mm jack that we are very used to use in everyday life and will have only one USB Type C port, you have to use any wireless headphones (via Bluetooth) for listening songs. So, here as well samsung seems to be winning the contest.

Galaxy Note 7 vs. Apple iPhone 7: Price comparison

Samsung has released Galaxy Note 7 that comes at price of around $850 bucks but its this device worth it, considering its outstanding features. However at the other hand Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still to come. We are going to update you with an accurate price after the IFA 2016 as the phone is going to announced there. Talking more on price of iPhone 7, we all know Apple is well known for launching iPhone’s with high price tag. As we all known iPhone 7 comes in 32GB, 128GB and 256Gb Storage, price for base variant will start from $649 USD and can go high as $900+ USD for 256 GB variant.

So, finally you can decide here which one is best. Both device features powerful specifications and awesome design that you will love to use. But we think Galaxy Note 7 has an upper edge over iPhone 7, not because it has better processor but 4GB RAM and larger battery life also availability of 3.5mm jack that we all love to use in our daily life. Note 7 also adds up the functionality of S-Pen. Still if you are apple fan, you can go with it.
