Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – Comparison at its Best

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - Comparison at its Best

Today we have for you a comparison between Samsung’s two new flagships on the market: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The two have been said to be very similar in looks, but let’s take a more in-depth look at what both the devices have to offer.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy S7 Edge is quite a gorgeous one, with the curved edges we’ve seen for the first time on the Galaxy S6 Edge. The diagonal of the screen is of 5.5 inches, while the display itself holds up a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The pixel density on the display has an impressive value of 577 pixels per inch.

As for the processor, the phone shows off two different possibilities, depending on where you’re located. U.S. citizens will be met with the same processor we see on the Samsung Galaxy S7, a Snapdragon 820 quad-core paired up with an Adreno 530 GPU.

In other parts of the world, the Galaxy S7 Edge is paired up with an Exynos octa-core processor, the 8890 model, which has been paired up with a Mali-T880 MP4 graphics processing unit. Both those processors have been given 4GB of RAM to run on, while the internal storage of the flagship is of 32 GB.

In the camera department, we see a rear camera of 12MP which has a PDAF feature which stands for phase detection autofocus, as well as auto HDR. The front camera has 5MP which is a pretty decent camera for such a popular smartphone. The battery has an amount of 3600 mAh and it is non-removable.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - Comparison at its Best 2

The newly released phablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 7 has been quite popular among critics, people having little cons to bring to the device. The Galaxy Note 7 is the first device to rock the newest Gorilla Glass model, as well as being the first Note phablet to be waterproof. The S-Pen is better than ever, the stylus being water resistant as well. The similarity in look with the S7 Edge is related to the curved edges Samsung decided to give to the new phablet. This does soften the Note 7’s features, but some people think the two flagships look too much alike.

Starting with the display, we can see a 5.7 inches Super AMOLED display that also has QHD technology. The resolution of the display is of 2560 x 1440 pixels, while the pixel density has a value of 518 pixels per inch.

Not only the Galaxy S7 Edge has been sold with two processor options, but the Note 7 will as well. The first option is the Exynos octa-core processor, while the other one is the same Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor its counterpart was paired up with as well. The phablet has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.

The camera in the back is of 12MP, same as the Galaxy S7 Edge, and holds the same options as its opponent. The front camera isn’t any different either, the Galaxy Note 7 showing off a 5MP camera. The battery has an amount of 3500 mAh and it is not removable.


The two are very similar in specs, some differences being found in display and battery – but nothing too drastic. If you’re going to buy one of these two flagships, it depends on what your purpose is: if you’re buying it only for personal use, you might go for the Galaxy S7 Edge, while the Galaxy Note 7 is marketed to more business-oriented people.

    Both of the phones are expensive and there some other brands available in the market which is more worthful to purchase and to avail better technologies and functionality in these price range.
    As per as my knowledge, these kinds of phones are making a man looser than gainer. Like the waste of money and time, waste of social behavior and gaining extra kgs of weight every week at least.
