Differences between Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7

Samsung today introduced its new exponent for the high end in the field of telephony: the Galaxy S8. The new terminal in South Korea is coming to compete with the top-tier of the rest of the companies within the Android landscape. Until Apple presents its new generation of handsets, the iPhone 7 will be one of the rivals to beat for the Galaxy S8. Differences between Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7.

So, although we know that 6 months have passed between the launch of one and another. We want to compare the current flagship of both companies. And see what differences exist between the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple iPhone 7.

Just by taking a first look at both terminals. We quickly realise that we are dealing with two completely different concepts. While Samsung has decided to take maximum care of the design of its new terminal, with ultra-reduced screen frames and a finished body in the glass. Apple decided at the time to continue the lines of design marked with the iPhone 6 released to the market. During the past 2014, keeping the aluminium body in this new generation.

In fact, one of the main surprises we took to see that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has a size that exceeds only 10 millimetres in height, and 1 millimetre wide to the Apple terminal still having a screen one inch larger. The iPhone, yes, has a body thinner than its Korean rival.

The screen is another aspect where the most differences we find, not only because of its size but also because of the technology used. The Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch Quad HD + panel that costs 1440 x 2960 pixels. While the iPhone 7 panel is reduced to 4.7 inches with 3D Touch technology and a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels with technology IPS.

The differences between the technical specifications of both devices are worthy of mention. While Samsung has made the jump to 10 nm with its new processor Exynos 8895. Apple maintains in A10 Fusion 16 nm, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM, instead of the 4 GB Galaxy S8.


The photographic section of both devices is one of the only aspects where we find similarities. The two have the main sensor of 12 megapixels with aperture 1.7, and none has made the jump to the double rear camera. A feature that if it includes the Plus version of the iPhone 7. Probably both terminals are at the top of the picture of mobile photography. Although we will not be able to declare a winner until we have tried both devices face to face.


Once again, Samsung has decided to overtake Apple with the launch of its new flagship. Obviously, between the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 7. We find a whole sea of differences, although it never hurts to compare the current flagship of both mobile platforms.
