Apple is a company that is not thinking about the design of the iPhone, they only think about what's inside the device, if you put the iPhone next to a Galaxy S7 or a Note 7, the iPhone will work similar or better than the Samsung devices. I have had experience with both devices and i'm a fan of both, iPhone is the most simple phone to use, the amount accessories and apps for this device is incredible, when they design the phone they won't make big changes to it because no matter what they do to it, people are still going to buy it. They can make the iPhone out of plastic with a paper back cover and the lines outside the stores will be long no matter what. Samsung on the other hand they believe that they can change the design every 2 years and people will be fine with it, the changes are not that big but still people are on their case because they get bored of the same design, but the good thing about Samsung is that they give us a great camera and features. Battery life is another topic people talk about, the iPhone has a smaller battery compared to Samsung because the iPhone doesn't have apps working constantly in the background like Samsung phones, Samsung uses Android Software and they have apps working overtime in the background, you can close a few of them but most of them are working over time and that's why they need a bigger battery, the other reason why Samsung needs better battery life is because of the 2K HD Display they provide in the device, the display is the major reason why the battery life has to be bigger than the iPhone, the iPhone uses a different technology when it comes to the display, I believe they are using a LCD display with a pixel density of 326 ppi, Samsung is using Super HD AMOLED with a pixel density of 517 ppi, Samsung has a better display for movies and videos but the iPhone's display is still looking great and crisp, Apple's displays are being made by LG and Sharp, while Samsung uses their own tech. Now Samsung will bring back the SD Card, they will give us 6 GB of RAM, Iris Scanner, Water and dust resistant (not water and dust proof), They lowered the megapixels from 16 to 12 but the pixel sensor is bigger and the lens is better going from 1.8f to 1.7f it will let more light in to the sensor so the pics are more clearer. Now iPhone is coming out with 3 versions of the 7 and three different cameras, i don't know the specifics but Apple cameras are one of the best in the market, professionals use the iPhone camera for photo shoots and the software provided by the app store to edit them on the fly. Both devices are the best in the market and i believe is all about what you are looking for, if you want simple to use, fast, great camera, premium software and quality you go with iPhone, If you want a device that is customizable when it comes to the display, fast, good software, awesome camera (specially in low light situations) and quality then you go with Samsung.

why iphone always use low mAh battery?
and iphone design is so boring.
I've seen a prototype of the iPhone 7. The unit I came across was the size of the iPhone 6+ with a display that curves right below the lock button. I'll share a picture of the device (which I already took) after asking for the consent of the unit's owner.
I've seen someone carrying a prototype of the iPhone 7. The one I saw is he same size of the iPhone 6+ with a display that curves right under the lock button. Currently running he latest beta of iOS 10.
Basically the same iphone year after year with slight improvement in hardware. Pretty basic phone with premium built. Still though expensive, people are buying it cause of the name and the british accent video marketing lmao!
zz, 15 Jul 2016it is,when you touch the screen it becomes 3du mean press and hold for pop up menu???? like in android???

I moved from an iphone 6 to an S7 Edge and the difference is staggering- especially if you optimize your android phone (disable features you don't need, switch off flipboard, etc), the battery lasts me almost twice as much as on the iphone 7...and that is suprising considering how bright and clear the screen is compared to the competition. I think i will only stick to Samsung or LG in the future...
Nothing special. I wonder why Apple don't just release new IOS and call it iphone 7. Nothing much had changed since iphone 6 isn't it. Some hardware upgrade, new camera and pretty much the exact same design for 2 years straight. Wait, isn't it 3rd year with same design? Anyway, just give them new IOS version and call it a day. Iphone users always tell me that new IOS can make their old iphone feels like new phone. No need to sell new iphone every year.
Opsyonal, 16 Jul 2016Of course its an iphone and all of its apps and games are developed by apple itself. If you on... moreIt would still be very fast because iPhone has a hell of a CPU core architecture and very powerful graphics card. It scores about 130'000 points in antutu just like Galaxy S7 (132'000). So you can't say it's slow. It's like comparing a Ferrari to a Lambo, they are both monsters.
iPhone were a great phone with the best smartphone ecosystem... but when comes to innovation they just left behide by their android compatitor... They dont even have fast charging features or full function of OTG support... I can watch movie on my android phone through hard disk but on my iPhone... When comes to battery life Apple product is a king, they provided well optimized system... I lost my phone in my house but I found it two weeks later and I managed to lost 30% of my battery life with data connection were on and I put my phone on silent mode... Im an Apple fan but due to lack of full smartphone function, I moved to Android and become android lover... RIP Steve Jobs, they once again kill ur great legacy!
NzruB, 13 Jul 2016This Year Apple business will go down 100%.. Yes, they only have about 800 billions
reonedenver, 13 Jul 2016Why bother coming out with a new phone? Just send the 10 update out. No wireless charging? on... more1. Wireless charging: just a feature and slower than normal charging (also Samsungs fast wireless charging is slower)
2. 4.7 with small bezels is the perfect size for me. And as you said, if you want a bigger phone, go for the plus model with 5.5. 5.1 would be too big to be used one-handed or much less comfortable. And also app developers had to make their app for another size/resolution and app updates/iOS updates would take longer to program. So just no
3. Waterproofing is said to come to 7 series. If it doesn't have an IP rating officially, the newer iPhones like 6s still are pretty water resistant as you can see from many youtube videos (when adrianisen made a test with champaign, the iPhone 6s survived but not the officially waterproof S7)
4. Yeah be happy with your non-iPhone and don't hate or make useless suggestions like your 5.1 inch screen

If you only knew,, if android apps and games will be running on iphones im pretty much sure iphone will be as slow and laggish as hell. Thats for you to know. Let the third party apps run on iphones and well see if it is still as fast and fluid as u think.
unnyz, 11 Jul 2016what exactly is 3D touch?it is,when you touch the screen it becomes 3d
Iphone 7 should have 3 models with all same specs except:
-iphone 7 mini with 4.0"
-iphone 7 with 5.0"
-iphone 7 plus with 6"
Optional, 11 Jul 2016I bought an iphone 5c two years ago for 27,000 pesos. After 3 months i sold it for only 12,000... moreTruth is that happens with any samrtphone, before you go claiming that iphone battery doesnt last a full day try using ANY other smartphone! I had a Sony before having an iPhone and its the same... They are not a Nokia 3310! Completely different phones and if you want a smartphone with that kind of battery it will be twice as heavy....
MIRACLES DONT HAPPEN! (yet)
