Samsung has made its Note 7 with dual edge display official and this time around the company has competition in the form of its own S7 edge and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. Samsung has been aiming at iPhone users with its Note series for some time now and has primarily pitched the Note device as an alternative to the otherwise stylish Galaxy S device.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is basically an S7 edge in terms of specifications but of course has that familiar S Pen, which has been further enhanced with new features. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also brings in some of the industry first feature like Iris Scanner. Earlier this quarter, some reports indicated that iPhone users are switching to Samsung’s Galaxy S7 range and the Korean smartphone giant would like to bring more iPhone users onboard.
On the other hand, Apple iPhone 6s Plus is still going strong thanks to its superior battery life and the extremely refined iOS operating system. Apple has been able to get enterprise customers onboard lately with new partnerships with IBM and Cisco. In case you are wondering, here is how the almost year old iPhone 6s Plus stacks up against the Samsung Galaxy note 7
Samsung Galaxy Note 7: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ticks every box when it comes to latest hardware specifications. It still has one of the brightest and crispiest displays on any smartphone. It is definitely large at 5.7-inches but the device is 2.2mm narrower than the outgoing model which makes it fit nicely. The Quad HD Super AMOLED panel offers vibrant colours and very deep blacks. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset in the US and Exynos 8890 processor in all other markets. The processor coupled with 4GB RAM will ensure smooth performance. Samsung has also made 64GB as standard memory option which gives enough space to store all the apps and 4K videos.
Samsung has also brought the 12MP dual pixel image sensor found on the S7 edge to Note 7 this time. The image sensor has a f/1.7 aperture which makes it ideal for low-light photography. Samsung has also upgraded the battery from 3,000mAh to 3,500mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s USP is still the S Pen which adds a whole new productivity layer on top of regular Android. With S Pen, Samsung now allows Galaxy Note 7’s user to translate texts to any language just by tapping the S Pen. The new magnify feature of S Pen makes it easier to zoom and look at contents. There is also a new glance option which allows switching between apps more easier.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 offers everything that a modern smartphone user needs right now. The device is fast and responsive and with bigger battery, will last even longer.
Apple iPhone 6s Plus: Apple iPhone 6s Plus may not come even a bit closer to Galaxy Note 7 but it dusts the specifications myth with impact performance. Apple iPhone 6s Plus is definitely the best large screen that performs well. Apple’s tight integration between hardware and software makes it a reliable performer.
Apple iPhone 6s Plus offers almost day long battery life and a camera that is just perfect. The added optical image stabilisation makes it a perfect camera to carry in your pocket. Apple iPhone 6s Plus runs iOS 9.3.3 which can stake claim for being the most advanced mobile operating system. With iOS 10, Apple iPhone 6s Plus will be even faster in terms of performance and more battery efficient.
In our review, we called iPhone 6s Plus as Mr Dependable and it stays the same even today.
