Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6s: Real-world speed test leaves one phone shamed

By on March 16, 2016 at 9:37 AM.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge flagship phones are now six days old. Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are six months old. Is it fair to pit these two smartphones against each other in performance tests? After all, things progress so quickly in the tech world that the passing of six months can seem like six years… unless of course you’re talking about battery technology, in which case progress comes at a snail’s pace.

Regardless of age, a new video published on YouTube offers what is likely the best real-world performance testing we’ve seen so far for these two flagship phones, and the results may surprise you. More →

Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6s: Ultimate torture test covers water, concrete, bending and more

By on March 14, 2016 at 9:52 AM.

Samsung’s brand new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge flagship smartphones are certified to be water-resistant. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are not. The new Galaxy S models are also dust-resistant. Apple’s iPhones are not. Are certifications the whole story, though? And do water and dust resistance ratings mean that the new Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are inherently more durable than Apple’s smartphone lineup?

The ultimate torture test was recently conducted on all four smartphone models and while some of the results were exactly what we expected, there was definitely a surprise or two to be found. More →

Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6s: In-depth showdown declares one true camera king

After Apple took an early lead in the smartphone camera battle a few years ago, the company had been trading blows with Samsung for quite some time until late last year, when most experts agreed that the Galaxy Note 5 took a decisive lead over Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Now Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have been released, and early reviewers almost unanimously stated that the duo’s shared camera pulled even further ahead of Apple. But in at least one head to head comparison, Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus was still declared the clear winner.

Is it possible that Samsung’s 2016 flagship phones are outmatched by Apple’s iPhones, which are now nearly six months old? The answer may lie in a newly published in-depth camera comparison. More →

The petty iPhone problem that’s driving me insane

The petty iPhone problem that’s driving me insane

By on February 25, 2016 at 11:23 AM.

Longtime readers of the site know at least two things about me: I’ve been an iPhone user since 2007 and a moderate germaphobe for much longer. Focusing on the iPhone for a moment, I’ve been there every step of the way as Apple refined its smartphone each year. The first iPhone was obviously the biggest disruption of the past decade in the smartphone industry — and as it turns out, Apple might also soon be responsible for the next huge disruption as well — but the original model was also quite clearly a first-generation product.

In the years since Apple’s iPhone was first released, Apple has molded its creation into the class-leading smartphone we see today in the iPhone 6s. What people don’t talk about as often is the fact that Apple’s build quality and quality control have also improved steadily over the years… for the most part. More →

Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6s: The 5 most important ways Samsung outshines Apple

By on February 22, 2016 at 10:55 AM.

There’s little question that the LG G5 was the most innovative smartphone unveiled on press day at this year’s Mobile World Congress trade show, but Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge still managed to steal the show. Meanwhile Apple’s 2016 flagship iPhones won’t be released for another seven months so for the foreseeable future, Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 phones have a leg up on Apple in 2016.

No sensible person would try to argue that each company’s flagship smartphone lineup has pros and cons compared to its rivals, but there are some pretty important areas where Samsung definitely beats Apple’s latest iPhones. We went over 15 nifty features the Galaxy S7 has that iPhone’s don’t in an earlier post, but now we’ll focus on the five most important ways Samsung’s new phones outclass Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Snapdragon 820 Vs Apple A9

This year’s best Android phones still might not be as fast as last year’s iPhone 6s

This year’s best Android phones still might not be as fast as last year’s iPhone 6s

By on February 10, 2016 at 9:57 AM.

We’ve said it countless times before and we’ll likely say it dozens of times more in the coming years: specs and benchmark test results on paper only tell part of the story. There’s no telling how a smartphone will perform when handling day-to-day tasks until you’re holding that smartphone in your hand and using it to perform those day-to-day tasks.

That said, specs and benchmarks are often a good indication of what we can expect from a smartphone, and newly discovered performance test results suggest that the brand new Snapdragon chip set to power this year’s flagship Android smartphones still might not be as fast as the Apple A9, which powers last year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
