Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. Apple iPhone SE – Pick The One That Fits You
The Galaxy S7 has just been released by Samsung, while Apple has just unveiled its iPhone SE and soon, it will hit the stores from all over the world. Below, we’ll compare these two smartphones and if you’ll be interested in purchasing any of them, then we recommend you to put some money aside.
The dimensions of the Galaxy S7 are 142.4×69.6×7.9mm, resulting in a total weight of 152 grams. Its appearance is identical to that of its predecessor, as the back is made of glass and it has a metal frame protecting the sides, and inside the oval home button is hidden the fingerprint scanner.
On the other hand, the iPhone SE is slimmer and lighter as it measures 123.8×58.6×7.6mm and weights 113 grams, but it looks just like the iPhone 5S: it features a boxier body made of aluminum, and has matte edges. Its home button is circular and has also a fingerprint scanner integrated into it.
The Galaxy S7 comes with a super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 577 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The iPhone SE has a smaller LED-backlit IPS LCD display of only 4-inch that supports a lower resolution of 1136×640 pixels at 326 ppi.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The Galaxy S7 comes in two variants of chipsets, processors and graphics cards, as follows:
– a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset with a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 2.15GHz and a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 1.6GHz, an Adreno 530 graphics card and 4GB of RAM;
– an Exynos 8890 Octa chipset with a quad-core Mongoose CPU clocked at 2.3GHz + a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.6GHz, a Mali-T880 MP12 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
The iPhone SE has the same configuration from the iPhone 6S: an Apple A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister CPU clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 graphics card and 2GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S7 has been released in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, which can be expanded up to 200GB using a microSD card. On the other hand, the iPhone SE comes variants of 16GB and 64GB, which aren’t expandable.
The Galaxy S7 sports a primary camera of 12MP with OIS, LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, auto HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 5MP. The iPhone SE has a 12MP primary camera that offers dual-LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama and the front camera is weaker, supporting only 1.2MP.
Both devices come with non-removable batteries, but the 3000 mAh battery found on the Galaxy S7 device is much more powerful than the 1642 mAh battery of the iPhone SE. However, let’s not forget that the iPhone SE has a 4-inch display, which means that it doesn’t consume as much power as the 5.1-inch display of the Galaxy S7.
