Like said before, you cannot find similarities in the prices of those mobiles. But, as they are the latest mobiles of those respective companies, you might need to know this comparison. On the other hand, you can justify whether Apple is providing the best value or not.


Designing & Build Quality

All of those mobiles look professional, and there is no doubt that engineers have spent a lot of time to give them a fancy look. Recently, Apple has launched jet black color, which is unusual in iPhone family. On the other hand, Samsung has done something different with Note 7. Apart from the color combination, you can find a curved display, which will help you to grip the mobile better. Also, it makes the smartphone even better regarding looks. Talking about the Nexus 6P, the back panel of this mobile is completely different than other two competitors. When it comes to the best professional designing, nexus 6P can top the list.

Even though the display size of iPhone 7 Plus is different than other two mobiles, but the dimension of Nexus 6P and iPhone 7 Plus are almost same. The size of Apple iPhone 7 Plus is 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm; it weighs 188g, and the dimension of Nexus 6P is 159.3 x 77.8 x 7.3 mm and it weighs 178g.

Display always plays a vital role for any mobile. The display size of Nexus 6P and Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is same. It comes with the 5.7-inch display. However, you can find 5.5-inch display in iPhone 7 Plus. Note 7 comes with Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M color depth and a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixel. For the protection, you can find Corning Gorilla Glass 5. On the other hand, it is water resistant and dust proof. Nexus 6P comes with AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with the same screen resolution as Note 7. However, the screen of Note 7 would be better than Nexus 6P. At the same time, you are getting LED-backlit IPS LCD with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixel. For protection, you will get an Ion-strengthened glass and oleophobic coating. If the screen resolution matters for you, you may not want to grab the Apple device. However, you will get a great feature in iPhone 7 Plus, and that is 3D Touch, which is unavailable in other two mobiles.


Performance depends on the display as well as the CPU, chipset, GPU, and RAM. Apple has included Apple A10 Fusion chipset in iPhone 7 Plus. Along with that, you will get 2.23GHz quad-core CPU in this mobile. Although the GPU is not confirmed yet, it has a sin-core graphics. On the other hand, Note 7 comes with Exynos 8890 chipset along with octa-core CPU. It also has Mali-T880 MP12 GPU. Nexus 6P comes with Snapdragon chipset. More specifically, you will get Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset along with Octa-core processor with Adreno 430 GPU. This is quite difficult to compare this CPU since they are more than enough for any users. However, nowadays, Snapdragon 820 is running, but Nexus 6P has Snapdragon 810.

Samsung has included 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage in Note 7. Huawei has added 3GB of RAM along with 32/64/128GB of internal storage in Nexus 6P. At this situation, Note 7 is obviously a winner.


Apple has made a couple of changes in their camera, as always. This time, you are getting dual 12MP camera with f/1.8, 28mm & f/2.8, 56mm. Some other features such as phase detection, optical image stabilization, quad-Led flash, etc. are included as well. Note 7 comes with 12MP camera with f/1.7, 26mm lens, phase detection and some others. Nexus 6P has 12.3MP camera with f/2.0 and some other regular features.

As of now, Apple has not added a good battery in their mobiles as compared to other companies. This time, you will get the 1950mAh battery (not confirmed yet) in iPhone 7 Plus. On the other hand, Note 7 has 3500mAh battery and Nexus 6P has a 3450mAh battery. Talking about the battery backup, it seems Nexus 6P users will get the best battery backup.

Other Features

But, the difference is Irish scanner, which is included in Note 7 and you can lock down your mobile using your eyes. This is what is new in Samsung mobile.


This is very tough to choose one mobile over another since they are the best in their ways. Before, choosing any mobile, do decide whether you want to use Android Nougat or iOS 10. Both of the operating systems have their pros and cons, but they are awesome and very feature-rich. If Android is your priority, Note 7 would be better. Otherwise, iPhone 7 Plus is there for you.

One important thing you should know about Note 7 that it has a nasty battery issue. As of now, many Note 7 has been exploded while charging. Samsung is trying to pull those back. Therefore, do not buy any mobile right now. Wait for few days for the official announcement.
