About the Product
iPhone 7 features a 12-megapixel camera with 4K video recording with OIS, a 4.7-inch HD Retina display with wide color gamut and 3D Touch, an A10 Fusion processor for high performance, and a large battery.

Why not have a phone that’s water resistant, too? Galaxy S7 withstands splashes, spills and even dunks. Capture the moment like a professional with dual-pixel technology, offering faster autofocus and low-light sensor. Combine that with a longer-lasting battery and expandable memory, and you have a device that’s more than a smartphone.

What customers say about "Display"
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • Better display (wider colour gamut).
  • The Retina display is a good looking display.
  • One of the last great things about this phone is the display.
  • The display looks exactly like the 6s, I cannot tell the difference with my eyes. Overall I was expecting more from a $900 phone.
  • I have to say, this is a good phone but it's basically a 6s without a phone jack. Same display as the 6s.

What customers say about "Processor"
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • This is the pinnacle of the IOS software experience. The 2GB of RAM, the A10 processor, and the implementation of IOS 10 is great. Everything runs well and quickly.
  • The processor allows multitasking between various applications without any delays in output.
  • Great phone overall with a very fast processor, and doesn't overheat.
  • First the processor, its amazing,
  • Its processor works very fast and is capable of running high graphic games and supporting convoluted photo-editing applications.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • With the snapdragon processor and 4 gig of RAM, this phone is quick to run your programs without lag. More than enough storage even without an SD card.
  • Obviously it has faster processor, latest android version and other software enhancements.
  • This phone is great for multitasking with its split screen support, and the processor is able to keep up with several open remote connections at once.
  • Updating from Galaxy S5, noticing that the processor gets very hot when in operation, just like the S5.

What customers say about "Camera"
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • While the cameras have been improved for both the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus, it is the 7 Plus that gets the dual camera that allows for extra zoom and portrait mode.
  • Camera takes much better pics (increased the megapixels and the difference is noticeable) and it has 5X zoom capability.
  • The camera is EXCELLENT. Great picture.
  • Very glitchy, several issues with the camera (black patch in corner) and sometimes takes a very long time to warm up and turn on from standby.
  • The iPhone7 doesn’t have the second lens
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • Phone is nice and light, camera takes awesome pictures and when watching a video or movie, the picture is so clear and detailed
  • While the Camera on the Galaxy S5 was goo, the camera on the S7 jumps leaps and bounds further, Would recommend this product toa friend (and a foe!)
  • Nice screen, easy to use, great color, camera unbelievably works great in dark, much better than iPhone.
  • Great camera with good night capability.
  • The camera was really good but it sure didn't last very long on batteries got awful hot

What customers say about "Features"
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • It is way way faster than the original 6.
  • Best iPhone ever hands-down .apples best product and this is coming from Emma android user I just love iOS 10 because it is somewhat like android marshmallow.
  • The speed is incredible. The Touch ID is faster than you might want. The haptic feedback home button is genius.
  • Siri still lags behind Google's assistant, and that gap is only widening. Google' AI is so much better compared to Apple.
  • Headphone jack. This is a big drawback on a few levels.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • Love that is waterproof and has a sd slot
  • Bought this phone because of water resistance features...and has already survived two dunks in water. Extremely satisfied.
  • It's not too big, very good looking, lots of storage, easy to operate, love the fingerprint ID function.
  • Works great, speaker is loud, screen is bright, touch screen sensitive, and very good looking.
  • One thing that Samsung can improve upon though is the slot for the SD (memory) and SIM card. Putting in a micro card for memory and SIM is tricky and requires a steady hand

What customers say about "Power"
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • Battery life is decent. Way better than my S5 I had before it.
  • The device keeps running smoothly, long lasting battery and still works and looks as new, no complains.
  • Battery life held up respectably for me, usually lasting me 1.5 days on a single charge. I'm not a heavy user, however, so your mileage may vary. In general, this delivered slightly better battery life than the iPhone 6 for me.
  • The new battery is much better. I can listen to the music almost all day long, browse the internet for a few hours, make couple of calls and use other apps without charging my iPhone7 in the middle of the day.
  • The battery runs down very fast.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • I am very happy with the battery life compared to S6.
  • Recently switched over to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and it's battery holds up better than any other phone i've had (LG V10, HTC One...)
  • Battery charges very quickly
  • Battery runs out a bit quickly unless put on power saving mode all the time.
  • This phone is Low on battery life. Rest of the things are ok
