Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Galaxy Note 5 – Pick The Best One

Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Galaxy Note 5

As Samsung Galaxy has already released the S7 version worldwide one can now compare the mobile with the more restricted release of the phablet line Galaxy Note 5 and see if the former is just as good of a buying option as the latter.

Latest News

Galaxy Note 5 will presumably add a USB-C port with a reversible connector, thus following in the footsteps of other phone making companies.

The port will give Note 5 faster charging features and the ability to carry Display Port video signals or HDMI.

Galaxy Note 5 will be waterproof and dust resistant and it will also sport an iris scanner.


Both devices use the same AMOLED display technology with a pixel density of 500 ppi that we can see at the previous phablet and smartphone generations – Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy S6 to be precise.

This means that they both display images and video with amazing clarity and detail at a 2560 x 1440 resolution. However, Note 5 has a tendency towards color over saturation.

The only difference that we can note between them in this sense is that S7 can easily be placed in a pocked at its 5.1 inch screen size whereas Note 5 is too big for that at its 5.7 inch display.

Also, the S7 is “on” all the time, thus displaying the date, time appointments and notifications efficiently.


Another thing that both devices have in common is that none of them display a curved screen, but they do have curved rear shells. The both sport a slim aluminum frame with Gorilla Glass 4 on the front. S7 is slightly thicker that Galaxy Note 5 by 1mm approximately.

Stylus, waterproofing and storage features

One of the most awesome things about Note 5 is the stylus pen that slides out from the bottom of the phablet, allowing users to make quick notes or drawings on the phone.

One advantage S7 has over Note 5 in this case is that it’s waterproof and dust-protected, plus it has expendable storage features.

Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Galaxy Note 5 2


Like the precedent phone generation, S7 sports a Exynos 8890 CPU which offers a 30% boost and 10% more power efficiency compared to what Note 5’s Exynos 7420 offers.

Both devices have octa core chips – S7 has four 1.6 GHz cores and four 2.3 GHz cores, whereas Note 5 has four 1.5 GHz cores and four 2.1 GHz cores. Furthermore, both phones have 4GB of RAM.


There is no real difference in terms of battery power either which means that both devices have quick charge capabilities complete with wireless charging options.

Both phones sport a 3.000 mAh non – removable battery. However, even though Note 5 can last up to 15 hours, the S7 model can last more.


There are significant differences here between the two devices. S7 has an aperture size of f/1.7 which means that it lets 25% more light in that results in better low light photography, as opposed to Note 5 which has a 1.9 aperture. Galaxy S7 also sports the world’s first dual pixel camera sensor for smartphones.


Both devices are of great quality and it would make it a hard to choose one over the other. However, Note 5 is more recommended for users who want a larger screen and tend to make sketches or take notes really fast (on account of the stylus pen). But for those who can’t get Note 5, Galaxy 7 is just as good.
