Comparison of iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7:
Rendering your current cans a phone-dodging redundancy, Apple has killed off the headphone jack and instead force people to either make do with an ugly adapter, buy a pair of Bluetooth headphones or use the basic pair of Lightening EarPods that coming the box. New Beats anyone? No matter how good-looking the phone is, Apple’s move to kill the headphone port will be a serious reason for many to dodge it and plump for the S7 instead.
Heck’s it’s even pissed of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. “If [the iPhone 7]’s missing the headphone jack, that’s gonna tick off a lot of people,” he said recently. “I would not use Bluetooth… I don’t like wireless.”A present headphone connector isn’t all the Sammy smartphone’s got going for it either. Yes, the Apple effort might be slimmer, sleeker and lighter, but unlike the S7 it doesn’t have the same options of the curved edge display introduced by the S7 Edge.
Both, however, offer impressive waterproof skills. While the iPhone 7 can now be dropped down the toilet with little worry, the S7 is capable of withstand 30 minutes submerged in up to 1.5 metres of water without succumbing to a watery demise.
