If we consider about the design and build quality of these giant handsets, both feature metal bodies with glass screens to give a premium look. With the size and weight iPhone is thinner and lighter at 7.1 mm thin and 143 grams in weight compared to Galaxy S7’s 7.9 mm thickness and 152 grams in weight. However S7 is far better looking smart phone with its unique design than iPhone 6S and S7 is slightly bigger in all its dimensions.



Galaxy S7 is another notable device Samsung has ever introduced to the public with improved display features and screen technology. As for the displays S7 is at a higher rank with its 5.1 inch larger one compared to iPhone 6s’ 4.7 inch display. When it comes to display resolution, Samsung has done a good job with S7 challenging the iPhone 6s’ 1334 x 750 pixels at 326 ppi. But pressure sensitive 3D Touch display which is still lacking in Samsung features doubles the value of iPhone 6s.


And again when it comes to the battery Samsung is in a higher place with its big 7’s 3000 mAh battery. It is a massive advantage to have a fine battery capacity, so S7’s battery will do more over your iPhone’s 1715 mAh.



The cameras on both of the devices are same in its quality and based on their specs. Both pack 5 megapixels front and 12 megapixels rear cameras. The S7 features an f/1.7 aperture while iPhone 6s features f/2.2. What this means is, S7’s Excellency in night shots. This improved ability of S7 in low light conditions makes Samsung most favorite for those who love to play with night photography and videos. The color rendering is pretty accurate in both S7 and 6s. But Galaxy S7 comes out much sharper.


Operating System

The operating system your smart gadget running is one of the significant considerations. The latest Galaxy S7is running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow the most advanced version of Google’s mobile Operating System. In the other hand Apple is on iOS 9 which is consisted of features really need by all. Overall the software versions on both the handsets are excellent and advanced in every way.

It is not really simple to decide which is best in every way, because both Samsung and Apple have done great work by bringing both of these immersive designs to the mobile space. However I believe my personal preference will add some good here at the end of the explanation. In an overall consideration Galaxy S7 clearly comes out on top almost in every comparison as to my view. So this S7will surely make 2016 a winning year for Samsung and to build a tough battle with its nearest rival Apple.
