“Should I buy the Apple iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S7?” This is a question that countless OS-agnostics ask themselves when shopping for a new phone. After all, they are widely considered to be the flagship devices for iOS and Android, respectively (with some competition via the Google Pixel and iPhone 7 Plus). This bias-free infographic breaks down how both handsets compare in a range of categories including display, storage, camera, audio quality and battery life.
The infographic below was compiled by lifestyle blog Beatbowler. It compares the Apple iPhone 7’s chief specifications to the Samsung Galaxy S7 without letting subjectivity get in the way. While not every comparison is meaningful — the iPhone 7’s halved RAM makes little difference to real-world usage — there are plenty of relevant differences for prospective buyers to take note of.
Obviously, there are other things to consider, such as aesthetics and ease-of-use, but when it comes to components and features, this is as comprehensive an assessment as any. For me, the Samsung Galaxy S7’s larger screen and longer battery life make it the winner but your opinion may differ. Tell us what you think in the comments!
