At this period in time, more and more mobile handset models are being released into the market every now and them. These models might be new models or upgraded versions of the previous models that had been released for quite a while ago. New handset models released later might be better than the previous ones but there are others that are even inferior in some aspects. Here, let’s talk about waiting for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be available in the market or just buy the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge that is released in the first quarter of this year. What would be better? Let’s find out.
Comparison between Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or buy S7 Edge
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge was released last March 2016 and been in the market for months now while the newer model, the Note 7 was just announced this August and is expected to be released the following month.
S7 Edge with the dimensions 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm while the yet to be released Note 7 is relatively bigger with 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm dimensions. The bigger build meant bigger larger display making Note 7 a .2-inch larger display than S7 Edge. Moreover, like the previous Note models, Note 7 comes with the improved S Pen which the S-series doesn’t have. The shape of both models have curved edges for better grip but with the difference being the sides of the Note 7 had a flat middle, each model might be better depending on the hand of the customer.
The physical structure of the cameras of both model might be the same, both having 12MP Dual Pixel Sensor with brighter F1.7 lens 1.4µm pixels. What varies is the options that comes within the phone. While the S7 Edge boasts its Hyperlapse, Motion Panorama and Selfie Options, the Note 7 focuses on professional photos, focus settings and slow motion.
Most mobile phones boast their capacity in terms of high definition gaming and that is the same for both S7 Edge and Note 7 having Vulcan API giving the best performance and quality gaming. But here, the S7 Edge had advantage with its own game launcher and tools that can be used for better gaming experience.
Both run with Android OS, v6.0 (Marshmallow) but Note 7 is planned to be upgraded to v7.0 (Nougat). Even though there in a Quad Core Model of S7 Edge, the other model and Note 7 both has Exynos 8890 Octa chipset and Quad-core 2.3 GHz Mongoose + quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU. The GPU is also the same both having Mali-T880 MP12.
Both Models, S7 Edge and Note 7 can support up to 256GB microSD along with 64GB Internal Storage capacity. But with Note 7 having an external sim tray that can be used for both sim and MicroSD which can be replaced anytime without turning off the handset.
Both handset models are high in performance but what is better. That can only be answered depending to the needs of the customer. If the need is for faster and higher performance, going to Note 7 might be a good idea as it is still bound to changes before and during the time it will be released to the market. For gaming and more compact and personal preferences, the older and slimmer S7 Edge might come handier as it having tools for games and personal camera options. Still, as it is unreleased, Note 7 might overcome these features too so it must be noted. But even though, we won’t know it Note 7 would get any slimmer than this.
The choice is still in the consumer’s hands though so we are just here to help decide.
