iPhone 7 vs Note 7
Ok, I feel that the iPhone 7 has finally been released for long enough to make a legitimate comparison between it and the Note 7. So, let’s dive on in and discuss the real differences.
Let’s start with the look and feel. Both devices look very similar to the generation before their time. The Note 7 with its 5.7 inch display mimics the S7 with the dual curve display to create a strong unibody. Flip the Note 7 over and you have a beautiful glass back housing that has a curve that fits perfectly in your hand. The Note 7 comes in 4 amazing colors; Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, Blue Coral or Gold Platinum. Moving on over to the iPhone 7 with the 4.7 inch display you have 5 colors to choose from; Matte Black, Jet Black, Gold, Silver, and Rose Gold. Disappointing to most it doesn’t look much different from last years iPhone 6s. You will notice that the home button is no longer an actual button but just a flat circle that resembles a similar function as the 3D touch on the 6s. You will also notice that the headphone jack is also non existent, it has been replaced with another speaker to increase the audio. This doesn’t mean you necessarily have to switch over to the cordless headphones because Apple includes a lightning adapter with each phone to convert all of your old 3mm headphones over.
Moving on to Samsung’s best quality which would be the camera of course. The Note 7 has a 12MP f/1.7 aperture primary camera with a 5MP front camera whereas the iPhone 7 has a 12MP f/1.8 aperture primary camera and a 7MP f/2.2 front camera. The Note 7 still has the iPhone 7 beat with it’s ability to take clearer pictures while you’re on the move.
The Note 7 also has a new unique feature that allows you to use the Iris in your eye to unlock your device whereas the iPhone 7 still only uses the fingerprint ID scanner for unlocking. The Note 7 also has double the memory capacity as the iPhone 7 with a whopping 4GB of RAM. The iPhone 7 comes in a 32GB, 128GB, or a 256GB option where Samsung stepped it up a bit offering 64GB or 256Gb with microSD support.
Now we all know the decision really comes down to Android or iOS!
