Increased Battery Size

iPhone 7 with 14 % more space offers 2 hours longer usage. Battery is one of the biggest problems in the times of technology. Luckily, the axing of the headphone jack means more space for battery. 14% more space equals to upping the overall size to 1955mAh.

Basic Storage Options

The basic storage option has doubled to 32GB. So upgraders are effectively getting an extra 16GB of storage for free. This was one of the most common complaints about Apple products. Now, the situation seems to get better.

Easy To Use

iPhone is still the easiest phone to use by far with no separate app drawer for your apps. Everything is simple and there is no need to go long way to reach an application. It is fast and clear.

Updates

All iPhone owners can update to the latest version of iOS since day 1 including iPhone 7. It is an option to update it or not. There is a fact that iPhone requires regular updates for making use of the latest features, while you do not have upgrade your device in case when you are good with less features.

Water Resistance

Good news for long-standing iPhone users looking to upgrade to the iPhone 7: it’s water resistant, but, that doesn’t mean salt water. Taking your phone into the sea for some underwater shots will not give what you expect. So, watch out!

Beautiful Design

Apple products are always designed in a simple style and they win the battle in term of beauty. Apple gives the expectation considering the design with iPhone 7, too.

iPhone 7 or Galaxy S8: Which Is The One For You?

Samsung and Apple are really good competitors on the market of smart phone, considering the hesitation of users between Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7? If you are planning to buy a smart phone of high technology, you must consider both Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 for many reasons.

To begin with, they both are the ground shaking devices of the year 2017. A review in terms of displays and design might be helpful for you to decide on the one for you although there are many other features to compare and contrast. Let’s start!

Display

  • Galaxy S8: 5.8-inch Super AMOLED, 2960 x 1440 pixels (570 ppi pixel density), 83.6% screen-to-body ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • iPhone 7: 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD, 1334 x 750 pixels (326 ppi), 65.6% screen-to-body ratio

Bigger is not always better. So the difference of the sizes can be ignored for a general saying. However, Samsung seems to win iPhone considering brightness and resolution. Its OLED ‘Infinity Display’ is apparently brighter and sharper than iPhone 7’s LCD Retina Display. The screen is also protected against scratches with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. On the other hand, for a longer battery life, you need to reduce the resolution to 2220 x 1080 which is still higher than Apple’s product.

Design

  • Galaxy S8: 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm (5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31-inch), 155g (5.36 oz)
  • iPhone 7: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.28 in) and 138 g (4.87 oz)

iPhone has the power of a more durable aluminum back while both phones are water and dust resistant. However, this common feature is not an evolution in this time of high technology. Even though iPhone 7 is stronger at some point, the screen-to-case ratio is still very low compared to its rival. The 65.6% screen-case ratio is really too much comparing with the Galaxy S8 with 84.2 screen-case ratio. Other than that, Apple’s new smartphone is criticized for its design lines because it is not different from previous models.
