Can iPhone 7 Kill the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

This year, Samsung has skipped the number “6” for their new Note series phone and have released the Galaxy Note 7 to go along with the S7 series number and to compete with the new iPhone 7 from Apple. Both of these phones were awaited and have been well received. There have been a lot of debates across the internet discussing which phone is better and which phone should be bought. Both phones are beasts but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Both of these phones are good, but does the iPhone 7 has the upper hand? Here is the answer to the ultimate question, can iPhone 7 kill Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

For comparison, we need the hardware specification of both phones. Here are the iPhone 7 hardware specifications:

  • 4.7-inch 750×1334 resolution display with force touch
  • Apple A10 Processor
  • 32GB/64GB/128GB storage with 3GB RAM
  • 12 Megapixel back camera
  • 5 Megapixel front camera
  • 1715mAh battery
  • iOS 10

Here are the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 hardware specifications:

  • 5.7-inch 1440p Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4
  • Exynos 8893 chipset
  • Octa-core processor
  • 32GB/128GB/256GB storage with 6GB RAM
  • microSD card slot (uses SIM 2 slot on Dual SIM versions)
  • 12 Megapixel back camera
  • 5 Megapixel front camera
  • USB Type-C port
  • 3500mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 (Nougat)

As always, Samsung tries to outperform Apple and in some places it does, no doubt. But Apple always takes the upper hand due to iOS which is only featured in their phones and TouchWiz skinned Android is not received well at times due to it being to feature rich to the point of some features being entirely useless. Samsung phones have a lot of bloatware whereas iPhones only come with the essential apps.

You can see that the Note 7 has bigger RAM than the iPhone 7, but iPhones still tend to run better because iOS has better RAM management algorithms which help the phone run smoothly. At some cases the performance of the two phones may be equal but the iPhone 7 does perform better at multitasking and shows very less signs on overheating.

The Note 7 has a bigger battery which means it can run almost a day and a half depending on regular usage. The iPhone 7 on the other hand has a smaller battery but runs just as good as the Note 7 battery. If you consider the optimization of iOS 10 with the hardware, the battery runs very well with a timing of almost a day depending on regular usage.
