Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - Is Bigger Always Better?

Comparisons - Battery


Samsung has some rather large batteries in its smartphones:


  • iPhone 6S: 143g 1715mAh
  • iPhone 6S Plus: 192g 2750mAh
  • Galaxy Note 7: 169g 3500mAh
  • Galaxy S7: 152g 3000mAh
  • Galaxy S7 edge: 3600mAh


But the iPhones weigh much more than the Galaxy handsets from Samsung.



Comparisons - Weight


  • iPhone 6S: 143g (5.04oz)
  • iPhone 6S Plus: 192g (6.77oz)
  • Galaxy Note 7: 169g (5.96oz)
  • Galaxy S7: 152g (5.36oz)
  • Galaxy S7 edge: 157g (5.54oz)


Not too bad at all, with the Galaxy Note 7 featuring the biggest display, but it is 13.6% lighter than the iPhone 6S Plus. It's interesting to note that the Galaxy S7 edge weighs 7% less than the Note 7, given its 5.5-inch display.


Comparisons - Displays


Samsung makes some of the best displays in the business, so it is only going to manifest in the Galaxy branded smartphones featuring high-res, gorgeous displays.


  • iPhone 6S: 4.7-inch (1334x750)
  • iPhone 6S Plus: 5.5-inch (1920x1080)
  • Galaxy Note 7: 5.7-inch (2560x1440)
  • Galaxy S7: 5.1-inch (2560x1440)
  • Galaxy S7 edge: 5.5-inch (2560x1440)
