Throughout the history of human life, we have found it oddly satisfying to pit two giants of the same genre against each other, in order to put an end to the age-old question of “Who is better?”. Let it be Real Madrid vs Barcelona, Pakistan vs India, The Rock vs Stone Cold Steve Austin, PS4 vs Xbox One, or let it be iPhone vs Samsung Galaxy S Series, it has been a logical solution to the dilemma of who is better?
The latest edition of phones from both Samsung and Apple are Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6S respectively. Throughout the years, we have seen ups and downs from both sides when it came to features such as design, performance or Customer retention; this time, however, the odds have been even more competitive.
The first thing that you see in a phone even before you start using that phone is the way it looks. It has been observed that sometimes people buy new phones only because they look CUTE. Both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6S have incorporated some new features to their respective designs. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 5.1-inch screen that uses a Quad HD super Amoled display. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge which a spinoff version of the S7, has a display of 5.5 inches. iPhone 6S, on the other hand, has a 4.7-inch screen. iPhone 6S plus is to iPhone 6S, what Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is to Galaxy S7, and its screen size is 5.5 inch.
As has been the norm, the Galaxy series from Samsung has an expandable memory to suit one’s needs. The basic memory these models have is from 8 to 16 GB, but they allow you to put in a Memory card that expands your memory to 32, 64, and 128 GB or more. On the contrary, iPhones have always had a fixed memory size, let it be 16, 64 or 128 GB.
It all comes down to this, no matter how fancy a phone you have in your hand, it is worth mere peanuts if its battery life is only a few minutes or hours at maximum operation. In this category, unfortunately, the iPhone loses to its fiercest rival. As we all know, iPhones are famous for their performance, their ability to work seamlessly and smoothly even at 3% battery life, their GPUs, but Samsung galaxy S7 and Samsung galaxy S7 edge have a far tolerant battery storage. The newest Samsung phones like the S7 and S7 edge have two battery saving modes. As the name suggests, these battery saving modes are a mechanism that can be managed by the user according to his or her preferences. Once activated, these modes will effectively help you to save battery life by tweaking things like closing unused background applications, reducing the brightness and so on.
I am a little bit (Read: Quite a lot) biased towards the Samsung phones because of my personal preference.
