iPhone and Samsung have always been head to head rivals when it comes to their different cell phones. With both of them being huge in the market, it’s not unheard of to compare the two cell phone options. And with around 85% of 18 to 29 year old Americans owning a smartphone, you want to be sure you’re getting the right one for you. Here are the differences side by side:
iPhones have always had a rather classy and stylish look and the iPhone 7 is no different. While maintaining most of the qualities of the previous iPhone 6, one notable update is the removal of the 3.5mm audio jack from its design. Many people do not know how to feel about this, now that wireless headphones are becoming more common.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 also didn’t see that much of a design change. It is a little bit heavier than the iPhone 7, but not so heavy that it can’t be used one-handed with ease. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has kept the 3.5 mm audio jack.
It is essential to know what features each phone has. The iPhone has waterproofing of up to three feet for 30 minutes. The phone has dual sound speakers to replace the fact that it no longer has an audio jack.
The Samsung Galaxy S6’s waterproofing is a little stronger. It allows the phone to be submerged in water up to six feet for thirty minutes, which is twice as deep as the iPhone. However, the Samsung only has one speaker at the bottom, compared to the iPhone’s top and bottom speaker.
Something that always drives people nuts is when your phone won’t charge and you have to take it to your cell phone provider for a fix. Apple claims to have given a huge boost to this phone’s battery life, stating it can last around two hours longer than Samsung’s. This has yet to be fully tested.
Tests show that the Samsung Galaxy S7’s battery lasted nine hours during a full-streaming, max-brightness video. This is reportedly one of the highest battery feats recorded.
So, at the end of the day, neither phone is totally better. It all really depends on personal preference. When you compare the two next to each other, you should be able to decide which phone is right for you.
