Samsung Galaxy and iPhone Battle set to Soar to New Heights
Apple has led the way in the smartphone market over the last few years, as Samsung have produced rather weak rivals to the iPhone. That could all be set to change this year as Samsung’s Galaxy S7 has been well received, forcing analysts to recalibrate their predictions for the company’s profits in 2016. The iPhone 7, therefore, also needs to raise its game.Samsung’s profits grew this year by 12% over 2015, and that is only taking into account the first quarter, with iPhone posting its first ever decline in sales. The early release of the S7 in March, compared to the iPhone 7’s release date set for September, appears to have been a shrewd move by the company. Pouncing on a market in which customers strive for the most modern and up to date technology was always going to be successful, but it could also give Apple the knowledge and time to make specific altercations that will blow the S7 out of the water when September comes.

A lot of phone buyers now place great importance on playing games on the move. Addictive apps and online games are now hugely popular. The Galaxy S7 is arguably the smarter purchase for gamers. With its large screen size of 5.1 inches and resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, the same games that are enjoyable to play on the computer are playable in this format and look just as good.
From Candy Crush Saga to any other famous phone game, to playing roulette and mobile slots while on the move, the S7 can trump the Apple devices in providing a better gaming experience.
Another aspect that phone buyers hold in high regard is the quality of the camera. In the modern age in which photos of food, selfies, and babies are to be uploaded to social media at all times, it is essential to have a decent camera at hand. The S7 boasts a highly impressive 12 mega pixel camera with phase detection auto-focus, OIS and LED flash. Some of its features include geo tagging, simultaneous 4K video and 9 MP image recording, touch focus, and face/smile detection.
With such impressive specs in key areas, how will the iPhone 7 adapt to compete?
The biggest news regarding the iPhone 7 is the fact that Apple may be scrapping the 16 GB model and bringing out a massively superior 256 GB version. This news is thus far unconfirmed but it could be a major contributing factor to tip the scales back in Apple’s favour.
The Apple iPhone 7 will have a smaller screen than the Galaxy S7, but in an attempt to rival Samsung’s large screen for gaming,
