Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs OnePlus 3: specs comparison


"Hey, Santa, all I want for Christmas is a Coral Blue Note 7!"

That's probably what lots of parents will have to cope with during the next Christmas shopping frenzy. We admit that we too are tempted to ask Santa for one of these, but we are still pondering whether to opt for the blue or the black one. Decisions, decisions...

Jokes aside, the hot new Note 7 has just arrived and it seems to be tick all the boxes - evolved design, long-anticipated features, and finally, that vibe of premiumness that the phone definitely excretes.

But how does it fare against the notable competition coming from the iPhone 6s Plus and the OnePlus 3? We are about to compare the specs of these and show you which one has the most oomph!
