Samsung and Apple are two of the biggest brand names in smartphones today and both have been very competitive in capturing and getting the attention and interest of the public. Every couple of months both brands are releasing their newest set of smartphones that everybody is just anticipating to see every time they do.
Today, two of their latest sets of smartphones are the Iphone 6s and Iphone 6s Plus for Apple, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for Samsung. Both smartphones have their key differences and features that everybody wishes to have in a single phone. And since it is not happening anytime soon, people should just weigh in which smartphone is better for them to have.
Key differences of both set of smartphones:
Apple’s 3D Touch
One of the key features of the latest set of smartphones released by Apple Inc. is the 3D Touch feature. 3D Touch feature gives user a new experience in using their phones since by putting a good amount of force will show the shortcuts of what you can do with the app. This feature is very beneficial for users who are in a hurry and want to do something in a quicker manner. With 3D Touch available, everything can now be done in a faster way.
Apple’s Live Photos
If you have seen the pictures in the Harry Potter movies, live photos feature of the Iphone 6s and Iphone 6s Plus is somewhat similar to it. The photos you are taking using the live photo feature will enable you to take a picture while you are moving around. It is not a video or a gif but a live photo. Your actions while taking a live photo will be captured. This is a great feature to have because you will really be able to take a photo of a moment that you want to remember, like a wedding proposal perhaps.
Samsung’s Always On
One of the best features a smartphone could have is probably this Samsung’s Always On feature. The Always On feature lives up to its name since the phone does not really sleep when you are not using it. As the name says, it is Always On meaning that you will always see something on the phone even when you are not using it. So, if most of the time you are using your phone to know what time it is, this Samsung’s always on feature is for you.
Samsung’s Edge UX
This feature is only available to Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge and its predecessor the Galaxy S6 Edge. The Galaxy S7 Edge has a more enhanced edge UX since it can now cater application, contact, tasks and web bookmark shortcuts. This will be a good feature for those people who want to have shortcuts on the favorite apps on their phones and be able to use it in a quicker way.
The camera on the Iphone 6s and Iphone 6s Plus is both 12 MP back camera and 5 MP front facing camera. The phones’ resolutions are 720p and 1080p respectively. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge also have the same camera pixels on both rear and front facing cameras but the phones’ resolution are bigger, that is 1080 for Galaxy S7 and QHD for Galaxy S7 Edge which is a lot better than the two latest iPhones. The images are better and sharper because of the bigger pixels and the Samsung phones use dual auto-focus pixel which is mostly used on DSLRs. This is currently the fastest dual-pixel auto focus available.
The Iphone smartphones have always been a non-expandable memory phone which most users are disappointed about. The phones come with 16/32/64GB variants. The Samsung phones on the other hand have an expandable memory since you can use a memory card in it. The phones are available in 32GB which is already good amount of memory and it becomes better with the memory card slot available for memory expansion.
Waterproof and Dust proof
The Apple smartphones have never been waterproof or dust proof. This is disappointing for Apple users as the other brands have already made their smartphones waterproof and dust proof. This is now the latest feature on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Both phones are dustproof and waterproof so accidentally spilling water on your phone will no longer worry you.
With these comparisons, you can now decide on which phone you will be buying and which phone will be better for you to use.
