Huawei P10 vs Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7: specs comparison

The brand new Huawei P10 is out of the bag, and it's a meticulously designed phone with a brand new diamond-cut finish. But how does the Huawei P10 stand up against the big rivals like the Apple iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 in a good old specs battle?

The Huawei P10 features Huawei's in-house Kirin 960 system chip, the latest generation of the company's silicon that has four powerful Cortex A57 processor cores that take care of more intense applications, and four power-efficient A53 processor cores used for daily tasks.

Unlike the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7, the P10 also features 64GB of storage even in its base model. This is twice the storage allotment on Galaxies and iPhones, and in addition to that, the Huawei P10 also supports expandable storage via a microSD card slot.

For this and all the other specs differences, feel free to check out our detailed Huawei P10 vs Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 specs comparison.

IP certified

IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

Pixel density

Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

432 ppi326 ppi576 ppi

Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

System chip

System chip - Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.

HiSilicon Kirin 960Apple A10 Fusion APL1W24Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996

Processor - The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.

System memory

System memory - System memory, or RAM memory is the type of memory that the device uses to temporarily store data from the OS or currently-running apps. The more RAM available to the device, the better the performance will be when multiple or heavier programs are running.

Built-in storage

Built-in storage - Bigger storage capacity allows you to keep more content saved onto your device, such as more applications, photos or video. Games and video content typically take up the biggest amount of storage space.

64 GB256 GB32 GB
Storage expansion

Storage expansion - Some handsets allow you to expand their storage capacity by using a memory expansion card – most often microSD. Expansion memory is mostly suitable for media storage, such as photo, video or music content.

The former cheapo brand shows the two most established brands how it's done!
