Galaxy S7 edge pitted against iPhone 6s Plus in most extensive comparison video yet

Galaxy S7 Edge Vs iPhone 6s Plus Video

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are finally releasing this week and we’ve been seeing a big uptick in the number of hands-on videos of the device popping up around the web. YouTuber SuperSaf TV this weekend did a comprehensive comparison between the Galaxy S7 edge and the iPhone 6s Plus and he found that Apple could actually learn a thing or two from the S7 edge’s design.

One thing that jumps out at you with the Galaxy S7 edge is that it’s actually a smaller device than the iPhone 6s Plus even though both devices have a 5.5-inch display. The reason for this is that the S7 edge has much slimmer bezels as well as a slimmer home button, which means its display takes up more of the device’s overall space than on the iPhone 6s Plus.

Here are some other observations from the video:

  • Although most people may not be able to see a big difference between the iPhone 6s Plus’s 1080p display and the S7 edge’s quad-HD display, the S7 edge is “noticeably sharper” when it comes to applications such as virtual reality.
  • Though both phones’ cameras perform well, the S7 edge looks like it takes better photos in low-light settings.
  • Both devices deliver on their promises of all-day batteries, although the S7 edge also features fast charging and wireless charging technology.

He concludes that Apple should really step up its game this year when it releases the iPhone 7 because the S7 edge has just added so many unique features that really add to the overall user experience.
