These two smartphone makers have been at it since 2007. Every year a new iPhone is released, Samsung has an answer to it for the Android lovers and its 2016 a new Galaxy or can we say two Galaxy Phone shave been announced. Samsung revealed its next two iPhones at MWC; The Galaxy S7 and s7 Edge which are basically identical to their predecessors, but they have been pimped internally to be faster and also be capable of some cool neat new tricks. Apple also recently released the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus, both having the highest specs any iPhone should have. Samsung has this time returned the SD card expansion but still no removable battery but also threw in water and dust resistance. From new design and build materials, to 4 GB of RAM to 12 MP cameras to the curved screen versions of their major flagships the new Samsung offerings have it all to battle with Apple’s iPhones.
At the end of the day it comes down to user experience, preference or can we say fan “boysim” but for those who are neutral and looking for something new, the chart below, will help you compare the iPhones compare to today’s Galaxy smartphones. Always remember it’s not all about the specs or what you see on paper.
