Poll results: the Note 7 has voter's attention, iPhone 2016 stays in the background

Poll results: the Note 7 has voter's attention, iPhone 2016 stays in the background
Back in 2015 when Samsung started pulling its event that showcases the new Note series a bit earlier in the Summer. While it was usually done at the start of IFA in the beginning of September, last year, it was done in mid August, and this year, we get to see the new Note at the start of August. The reason for this, numerous leaks and reports claim, is the fact that Samsung wants its top-tier smartphone to get some time to gain momentum in sales before Apple releases its ever-popular iPhone.

Whether this tactic is actually viable when we are talking about such high-class smartphones may be a bit arguable. Most iPhone fans are not very likely to grab a Note, just because it comes a month early, and most Android users are very well aware that the Note smartphones are among the best that the platform has to offer. In fact, we decided to ask you, our readers, if you have your mind set up on which one of these phones you are going for, or if you are actually waiting to see both announced, before making the call. Here's what voters answered:

Which one are you planning to buy – the Note 7 or 2016 iPhone / Plus?

Note 7 all the way!
62.91%
Waiting patiently for those new iPhones!

I will decide when all are released

The Note 7 is just a blown up S7.

And yet somehow it will STILL be better than the iPhone 6SE or whatever in every way.

Maybe because it's not even 6 months they released S7. Just some food for thought. Besides, I know it might as shock to you but have you ever thought Note 7 and S7 are targeted at different audience? Let me explain it you with an example that you might understand, did you whine to Apple and say why 6s plus is a blown up 6s ? I know its difficult to get your body ready and whine at the same time but you could've at least tried.

TBH the 6s plus is suppose to be a blown up 6s, they do share the same name after all and at the end of the day the 6s plus is better than the 6s like it is suppose to be, where's the note 7 isn't better than the S7E besides the fact that it has an S pen and many note owners don't even use it. Before 2015 and the note 5,the note had always been better than the galaxy s in every way but for some reason samsung just decided it shouldn't have better specs and s**t. Whats the point in releasing the note later in the year if not for it to have better specs and be a whole different phone than that years galaxy s. At this rate samsung should just start releasing the note with the s if it's not going to be different. just go back and look at the S5 vs Note4, S4 vs Note 3, S3 vs Note 2 and tell me that the note compared to that years galaxy s wasn't much better, with the S6 and Note 5 that disappeared and destroyed what the note was all about. at the end of the day the note5 and 7 will still be notes but they aren't the beast they use to be.

Forget the difference between 6s and 6s plus.... Even the 6s is the blown up 6 and 6s plus the blown up 6 plus...

With Spens features, while the Ip6s+ is just an oversized Ip6.

Mxy bashes trolls for saying bad stuff about the still unofficial iPhone 7, yet he bashes the Note 7 even though it is still unofficial. You see the stupidity here folks?

ok i hate iphone for few reasons, standard size iphone screen is like 10years old tech, then iphone plus is 5.5 inches and same size or bigger than note which is 5.7 + s pen, so its simply two FAIL. only good thing about iphones is iphone plus holds battery pretty good, i guess same as note or more.

The iPhone 5.5" only has a 1080p display. Whereas the iPhone 4.7" only has a HD display. Now that is old, and there is no reason why Apple would still put a HD display in their iPhone. Well maybe to boast and brag about graphics benchmarks, since they are using such a low resolution display. Even Motorola's budget G4 phone is using a 1080 display.

I didn't know the S7 had an S-Pen. The iPhone Plus model is literally just a blown up iPhone, without even a stylus. Don't recall you commenting about that.

If Apple is smart, they'll make the Apple Pencil backwards compatible, it'll sell more what way. Awesome phone, but I don't actually consider it a phablet. I used to say Samsung learned from Apple, and refined their software. Now Apple needs to learn from Samsung, and bolster theirs.

S7 will still be better than the upcoming iPhone 7, or plus or pro

If the iPhone pro is so revolutionary. Then why didn't Apple just add the pro features to the plus version instead? If the pro version is the same physical size as the plus version, then Apple is clearly creating another tier to rake in more money, because it has the pro name. Apple could have easily added all the pro features to the plus. Mxyzptlk I think your mind is blown up.
