After Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Note 7, many tech experts have rushed to compare it with its rival, none other than Apple's iPhone 6S Plus.

According to Android Central, in the 2016 market Samsung and Apple smartphone brands are clearly differentiated. They come with different concepts of smartphone designs. The flagships Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 6S Plus are the embodiment of two very different smartphone philosophies.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 comes with its curved panels, glass-backed designs, super-slim bezels, wireless charging and big batteries. Apple's iPhone 6S Plus is trying to do more with less. Its mobile device is a super-slim metal handset that comes with its own tightly controlled proprietary software and hardware.

For Apple's iPhone 6s Plus, concepts such as performance and ease of use are of top priority. However, as various reviews compare the Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 6S Plus, most of the tech experts find Samsung's flagship device the winner when it comes to peformance and usability. This is not so surprising, considering that Apple's iPhone 6s Plus is now almost a year old.

According to Digital Trends, Samsung's newly unveiled Galaxy Note 7 is packed with top-of-the-line specs. While it shares lots of design concepts and internal hardware with the Galaxy S7 Edge, the Note 7 stands out by being Samsung's first flagship smartphone featuring an iris scanner and a USB Type-C charging port.

Still, it must be noted that It is difficult to compare an iPhone with the specs of an Android device. Many of the iPhone's hardware specs are optimized for iOS. For instance, Apple's device does not necessarily need 4 GB of RAM.

The Note 7 is powered by Snapdragon 820 processor, while Apple's iPhone 6s Plus is based on the A9 chip that the company self-designed especially for the iPhone line. This means that Apple's A9 is optimized far better for the device than Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 is for the Note 7. However, in benchmark tests the Snapdragon 820 chip beat the A9 chip.

In terms of storage, the Note 7 comes with 64 GB and a MicroSD card slot that supports storage extension up to 256 GB. Apple's iPhone 6S Plus starts out with 16 GB and offers a 64 GB and 128 GB version. Unfortunately, the device does not come with MicroSD card slot for storage space extension.

Spec-wise, Samsung's newly unveiled Galaxy Note 7 has 4 GB or Ram beating out Apple's iPhone 6SPlus, which only has 2 GB of RAM. As for features, the iPhone 6s Plus comes with 3D Touch, while the Note 7 comes with the S Pen stylus. Still, thanks to the iris scanner, wireless and fast charging and IP68 water resistance, the Note 7 may beat out the latest iPhone in terms of features. Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 phablet also features a bigger battery.
