iPhone 7 vs Galaxy S7: Software, Specs, Price & More

As a reminder the Galaxy S7 was released in March, while the new iPhone 7 won't begin shipping until September 16th.

Apple's new iPhone 7 runs the latest iOS 10 which is loaded full of fancy new features. Gestures to glance at the screen when you pull it up to your face, 3D Touch, a new Force Touch ID home button that's solid state, and a whole lot more. It's their biggest iOS update ever, and loaded with more features than ever before.

Of course the Galaxy S7 runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and will soon get Android 7.0 Nougat. It also has more features than most phones. Gesture controls, Smart Stay, multi-window mode to run two apps at once, an Always-On Display, power saving modes, widgets and more. This is all a personal preference.

One thing to keep in mind is the new iPhone 7 no longer has a 3.5mm headphone jack, and all those old headphones will need to be replaced, or used with an adapter. It now comes with Lightning Apple Buds, and an adapter in the box for other headphones.

Last but certainly not least, here's a breakdown of some of the specs for those who want them.
