Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy S7 Edge: Which Is The Better Samsung Smartphone?
The Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7 Edge share a lot of similarities with each other. But their unique features will ultimately help customers pick the best Samsung smartphone for them.
Both smartphones almost look and share the same curves except that the Galaxy Note 7 is a bit larger than the Galaxy S7 Edge. It should be pointed out that the S7 Edge has been out on the market for the past six months. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 7 has recently come out this August, according to an earlier iTech Post report. Both share a 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED display. However, the Galaxy Edge 7 has a superior screen resolution at 543 ppi. The Note 7 is slightly lower at 518 ppi.
The Galaxy Note 7 smartphones do have superior screen protection with Gorilla Glass 5 while the S7 Edge makes do with Gorilla Glass 4. The Galaxy S7 Edge though is edgier than the Note 7. This kind of difference however, does not seem to matter much to avid Samsung fans, according to Forbes.
Both the Note 7 and S7 Edge have the "Always on Display" feature, although the former has handwriting capabilities which allow users to write on the lockscreen using the smartphone's S-Pen. The newest Note and Edge models could also be charged wirelessly, hence the glass back. Apart from these, Samsung also made sure that the two smartphones can survive being submerged in water, as both are certified as IP68 water resistant.
With regards to performance, the Note 7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the United States share the processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 dual core and 4GB of RAM. Those sold elsewhere carry the Exynos 8890 quad core processor.
There are two Galaxy Note 7 features that are not present in the S7 Edge which is the iris scanner and the S Pen, according to Slashgear. It has been observed however, that the new security feature is a more difficult to use than the standard fingerprint scanner. Industry insiders do concede that an iris scan offers more security protection, however. The S Pen has become easier to use than its predecessors despite the large size of software that accompanies it, too.
