Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus: Specs, features and price comparison

Samsung and Apple both released its flagship smartphones with every possible feature. Apple iPhone 7 Plus is another version plus dual camera and bigger screen. Apple added some cool features and removed 3.5 mm jack. Samsung keeps on cramming new tech in its latest releases, now Samsung added an iris scanner in Galaxy Note 7 to increase the security. Let’s start the battle of next flagships.

iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy Note 7: Display

What Samsung used in Note 7 is the SuperAMOLED display panel which gives brighter and higher contrast ratio. We had never seen how bright it is because we always keep it at the very lowest or Automatic to save battery. Apple’s IPS LCD is battery efficient but lacks the resolution and pixel density. You can decide who is the winner here by looking at the specifications:

iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy Note 7: Camera

Apple finally did it, and iPhone 7 Plus features two cameras at the back. Two 12 MP lenses; one is wide angle, and the other is a telephoto lens.  Now you can Zoom at 2X optical zoom and 10X digital zoom. Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s 12 MP camera can do anything but cannot give you optical zoom feature, so we are giving this to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy Note 7: Performance

Apple iPhones are known for performance, so if anyone tells you that his phones can perform better than iPhone then don’t believe him (not even me). Samsung Galaxy Note 7 features an excellent Exynos 8890 Octa processor but can’t beat iPhone’s performance even with 4 GB RAM. But If we talk about specifications Samsung can win this round, but we are still giving this to iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy Note 7: Operating System

Apple iOS is the light and most productive OS from all, but if we talk about the limit, then you will soon imagine that there is nothing like Android OS. First, Android is free and oper source so you can customize and modify it as your needs. Second, you can do almost everything on an Android smartphone or tablet.

And the best one is the Virtual Reality; Google is creating its apps and technology which can take your creativity to the next level. Apple’s iPhone is not even close to it; you cannot play a VR game on iPhone which is very common now in Android smartphones. We are giving this to Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy Note 7: Battery

When we are talking about battery; Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes with 3500 mAh battery which is enough for a whole day and lasts several hours longer than the previous Note smartphone (Note 5). We still don’t know about the actual specification of the battery in iPhone 7 Plus. So we are giving this to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

iPhone 7 Plus vs Galaxy Note 7: Features

Apple does not cram lots of tech in its iPhones thus its faster and smoother to operate. But Samsung always keeps on adding new techs on its smartphones and this time it was the IRIS scanner security. Apple added a new feature 3D touch capacitive home button with tactic feedback to make you feel like you clicked a button. So we are giving this to Samsung Galaxy Note 7.


The result is clear, and we have a tie between both of the devices. I love both of the devices and don’t want to break this tie but if you want to break this tie then use the comment section for that.
