Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6s: three-way specs comparison

5

The hot new Android flagship in town is, undoubtedly, the Galaxy S7, a phone that sets the bar high for 2016. It seems to have it all - exquisite design, saucy specs, and promising camera, which are all requirements for having a bestseller. 

Don't believe us? Well, just take a look at last year's Galaxy S6 specs sheet and you will notice in no time that the Galaxy S7 is a big leap forward on all fronts. 

What about the other hot thing on the block, the Apple iPhone 6s? Well, comparing specs between an iPhone and an Android is a bit ridiculous as these are not that comparable, but still, we've thrown one for a good measure.
