Chicas 1 Ricardo Chicas Professor Cooke English 102 April 14, 2017 iPhone vs. Samsung What are you? Team Apple or team Samsung? A question commonly asked, but even more asked is, which is better between the two? A question that has led to many debates, many arguments, and many ‘drop tests’ videos on YouTube .

These are the flagship phones that the companies are claiming to be the best. I will particularly be going over these four important criteria: technical specifications that make up the phones, operating system, overall design and reliability during daily usage. Based on these four different criteria, I believe that the iPhone 7 will have the better technical specifications and better design. I believe that the Galaxy S7 will have the better Operating system and better reliability. This topic is relevant in today’s society because these products revolve around our lives. Phones are our connections to the world, they keep us connected and can help us in almost any situation. Being such a big extension to our everyday lives, we expect that when we purchase these expensive devices they are the best of the best.

Often, the phone we have determines which laptop or tablet we buy so that we can have continuity between switching devices and they come at a big price. It’s an investment cause most people can’t afford a new phone or laptop and tablet

Chicas 2 all at once, they gradually buy one after the other, and if you are going to embark in that tech journey and you’re starting with your phone, you want to have the best one in the industry. On Apple.com, the tech giant has laid out an entirely, easily navigable, and simple to understand layout of what lies under the hood of the iPhone, this is how I managed to gather my information. They begin with stating the various amounts of gigabytes they offer which is; 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. They state that the iPhone 7 comes in silver, gold, rose gold, black, and jet black; in fine print that their Jet black and (PRODUCT) RED only come in the 128GB and 256GB. Next, Apple.com sates that their iPhone 7 comes with a 4.7 inch (diagonal) Retina HD display, that comes with an LED-backlit widescreen. However, for their bigger iPhone 7 Plus, it also comes with a Retina HD display but, the display size increases to 5.5 inches. The iPhone 7’s display has a resolution of 1334 -by-750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi, whilst the 7 plus has a display resolution of 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution at 401 ppi. Both models are rated IP67, which means both devices are splash, water and dust resistant. Both models come with Apples latest chip, the A10 Fusion chip with 64bit architecture and a M10 motion coprocessor. Also,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
