Samsung Pay & More

Apple Pay is great, and it's accepted at tons of retail places around the United States and elsewhere, but it can't complete with Samsung Pay. It just can't.

See, Apple Pay only works with very new payment terminals that have an NFC reader. However, Samsung Pay works with both NFC and the older MST (magnetic strip at 95% of stores in the US) meaning even that old store around the corner can work with Samsung Pay.

I've been using Samsung Pay daily for nearly a year, and it continues to amaze me, not to mention the fact that it works essentially everywhere I go.

Some honorable mentions go out to the Galaxy Note 7 for virtual reality, which Apple is still staying away from, and of course the Iris eye scanner for improved security. The big 3,500 mAh battery lasts all-day with ease, it still has a 3.5mm headphone jack (unlike the iPhone 7) and while the 7 Plus does have two cameras on the back, until further notice the Galaxy Note 7 camera is still the one to beat. Praised by many as the best smartphone camera on the market.

There's no doubt the new dual 12 megapixel cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus are great, and that 2x optical zoom at 56mm is nice, but we'll have to wait and see. The Galaxy Note 7 is also a little faster with an f/1.7 aperture, has a dualpixel autofocus system that is the best we've seen, and continously takes great photos with ease.

These are two great phones and even though the iPhone 7 Plus has a lot to offer, these were a few reasons we think buyers might still choose the Galaxy Note 7 instead.
