Apple iPhone SE vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 – Choose The Best One

Apple iPhone SE vs. Samsung Galaxy S7

Apple iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy S7 are two flagships that have been released in March 2016. The former is more like a dwarf iPhone 6S with the design of the iPhone 5S, while the other is the upgraded version of the Galaxy S6. Today we’re going to compare these two handsets and let you decide which one is better for you.


The Apple iPhone SE measures 123.8x58.6x7.6mm and has a weight of 113 grams. It looks almost identical to the iPhone 5S, featuring an aluminum unibody with chamfered edges, while the Galaxy S7 has a glass back and a metal frame, it’s much taller and heavier, as it measures 142.4x69.6x7.9mm and weights 152 grams. However, Samsung made it resistant to dust and water, as this feature was removed from the Galaxy S6.


The Apple iPhone SE has an IPS LCD display of 4-inch that supports a resolution of 1136x640 pixels at 326 ppi. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a larger Super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that supports a higher resolution of 2560x1440 pixels at 577 ppi.

Graphics Cards, Processors & RAM

The Apple iPhone SE has an A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister CPU clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 (six-core) graphics card and 2GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy S7 handset comes in two variants:

- one has an Exynos 8890 Octa chipset, a quad-core Mongoose processor clocked at 2.3GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, a Mali-T880 MP12 graphics card and 4GB of RAM;
- another one has a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, a dual-core Kryo processor clocked at 2.15GHz and a dual-core Kryo processor clocked at 1.6GHz, an Adreno 530 graphics card and 4GB of RAM.

iPhone SE is brought to life A9 by the chipset, the same on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6s Plus has the same 12MP camera that is on the iPhone 6s and even includes Live Photos, despite the absence of 3D Touch. Fingerprint sensor from the previous generation is therefore weaker, in features we will also find Apple Pay and NFC.

There are many iPhone users who have not yet made the step towards larger screens and SE enables them to remain at a smaller display, but with an improved hardware. It remains to be seen whether they will want to upgrade to iPhone SE, or will wait until September, when iPhone 7 will be launched, which will be equipped with the new A10 chipset and other hardware upgrades.


The Apple iPhone SE comes in two internal storage variants of 16GB and 64GB, but you can’t expand it, as the device wasn’t equipped with a card slot. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S7 comes in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, which support expansion up to 200GB using a microSD card.


The Apple iPhone SE sports a primary camera of 12MP (f/2.2 aperture) that features dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus, geo-tagging, face detection, touch focus, HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 1.2MP. The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a primary camera of 12MP (f/1.7 feature) that supports phase detection autofocus, OIS, LED flash, geo-tagging, panorama, auto HDR, touch focus and a secondary camera of 5MP.


The Apple iPhone SE has non-removable battery of 1624 mAh which is less powerful than the non-removable 3000 mAh battery of the Galaxy S7.

Which one from these two latest smartphones would you choose? No matter if you are a Samsung or Apple fan, please let us know your thoughts.

    The article above is very useful. The thing is that, despite apple lags behind in statistics, it performs better when it comes to real usage. and the itunes accounts, icloud and many other services make apple unique. I'll go with apple, any day.
