Apple announced the new iPhone 7 Plus Wednesday, and although I will buy one since it's my job to cover all devices on ZDNet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will likely remain the device to beat. Last year I posted my 10 reasons to pick the Note 5 over Apple's best iPhone. The Note 7 improves on the Note 5 with water resistance, microSD expansion capability, and a refined dual-edge curved glass design. However, Apple also improved the iPhone with a new camera design, water resistance, stereo speakers, and improved internal specs. Here are 10 reasons to consider the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 instead of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Fast charging: I still cannot believe Apple hasn't developed the technology to charge up the iPhone at a fast rate. Most new Android phones, even those in the $400 range, have the ability to charge up in a short period of time. Display: The iPhone display resolution (1920x1080) has always been less than the high-end Samsung phones, but it still looks great, and … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 7 Plus: 10 reasons to pick the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 instead
Apple iphone 7 specs
Full reviews for both the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are live on ZDNet. I personally own both, and even after spending a couple weeks with both, I can't give up either one. Both are fantastic smartphones, and if you have an operating system preference, there is no decision to make. If you are open to either iOS or Android, then here are some things to consider as we look at the two best phones on the market today head-to-head. Comparing all of the specifications in a table doesn't tell much about the devices since each run a different operating system with different performance needs. Let's take a look at some specs that can be compared in an apples-to-apples matchup: Apple iPhone 7 Plus Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Screen size/type 5.5-inch LCD 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Dimensions 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3mm\188g 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9mm\169g Water/dust resistance IP67 IP68 Rear camera resolution 12 megapixels … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 7: Which is the better enterprise flagship?

Especially when this time last year all the iPhone preachers were telling everyone that Apple doesn't need 2gb of RAM with the iPhone 6. They wrre making up crap that Android needs 4gb or more because it's slow and laggy. Yet 1 year later, now Apple is going to 3gb of RAM. Where are all those Apple Zealot's anyway. Wait I know where they are right now. They are still eating their crow. 61. yyzamin (Posts: 326; Member since: 26 Aug 2015) Dude android is still laggy and they talking about 6gb ram. … [Read more...] about Comments for : Latest Apple iPhone 7 Plus rumors call for 3GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage and more

FluffyBled (Posts: 546; Member since: 10 Sep 2014) Not trolling or anything but you could just say "I really like the design", because there's almost nothing new in that! Not talking about components! posted on 26 Jul 2016, 06:46 4 4. BradyCrack (Posts: 835; Member since: 29 Dec 2015) I'd have to disagree with you there, I think the redesigned antenna bands looks a lot more sleek unlike the previous years. The way they made the shell curve up to the camera hump looks a lot better as well. There's plenty of change for me to distinguish between the 6s and 7/6se/6x 5. sgodsell (Posts: 5714; Member since: 16 Mar 2013) So are you on crack Brady?
