Looking to buy a new phablet and wondering if you should buy the iPhone 6s Plus released last year or Samsung’s recently unveiled Galaxy Note7? There are hardly any other phablets that you can consider, with the iPhone 6s Plus and the Galaxy Note 7 packing the absolute best in terms of technology and features.
But which one is the better device between the two? Let’s find out in our comparison.
The iPhone 6s Plus looks similar to the iPhone 6 Plus, with just a few minor tweaks here and there. Most notably, the device is significantly heavier due to the addition of 3D Touch. Apple also offers the iPhone 6s Plus in a Rose Gold color to separate it from the iPhone 6 Plus. However, this is still more than a 1.5-year-old design that is now looking dated.
On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 7’s design is based on the Galaxy S7 edge that was launched earlier this year. The handset has the same design language that Samsung first debuted with the Galaxy S6 last year, but the company has made some minor changes to make it more ergonomic friendly on the Note 7. And the inclusion of a curved AMOLED display really adds to the overall design of the handset. The curved edges are also less pronounced here which makes them less of an ergonomic disaster.
When compared side-by-side, the Galaxy Note 7 looks more attractive than the iPhone 6s Plus. This is largely due to its attractive color schemes, especially Coral Blue, and the curved AMOLED display. The Galaxy Note 7 also features an IP68 rating that makes it dust and water-resistant, something which the iPhone 6s Plus lacks.
The iPhone 6s Plus features a 5.5-inch Full HD Retina HD display with a 401ppi. The Galaxy Note 7 comes with a larger 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a significantly higher Quad HD resolution that gives it a pixel density of 577ppi. While Apple still uses the best IPS panels on its iPhones, the Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy Note 7 is the absolute best smartphone display you can find in the market. The panel is akin to the one used on the Galaxy S7 edge, which swept DisplayMate’s benchmarks and was crowned as the most accurate and best OLED panel ever to grace their labs.
