About the Product
An A10 Fusion chip for up to 2x faster performance than iPhone 6. Touch ID. A 4.7-inch Retina HD display with wide color and 3D Touch. Faster LTE. Immersive stereo sound, splash and water resistant, and iOS 10. The iPhone 7 display uses the same color space as the digital cinema industry, so what you see will be noticeably more brilliant and vibrant. When you use 3D Touch, your iPhone responds with subtle taps. The new Retina HD display deeply integrates 3D Touch throughout iOS. Now you can interact with Messages, Calendar, Mail, and other apps.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 unlocks a Galaxy of technology that takes your smartphone experience to a new level. The bigger, more stunning screen completes the slimmer design. 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 the same as it has been since the iPhone 4. 326 pixels per inch is a good looking display. It certainly does not compete with some other phones and their higher resolution screens, but for now, the screen still gets the job done.
  • One of the last great things about this phone is the display. When I first placed my order, I wondered if the display would live up to the claims. Wider-color gamut, 25% brighter. Well it definitely does. This is honestly one of the most color accurate displays I have ever seen
  • 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.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx

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. On my iPhone 5s, I would notice quickly that my phone would become hot, but not with the iPhone 7. I would recommend this to anyone that is trying to get the best operating system, but at the same time the fastest phone
  • First the processor, its amazing, but so is the processor in just about every phone now a days. But considering this phone is more powerful then any MacBook or MacBook Air, or Even iPad ever created, its pretty remarkable.
  • Launching Apps on the iPhone 7 is quicker than other Smartphones. 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. T
  • camera takes much better pics (increased the megapixels and the difference is noticeable) and it has 5X zoom capability.
  • Unfortunately, the iPhone7 doesn’t have the second lens( as the iPhone plus has), The selfie camera was improved though, and I see a difference between evening photos taken with iPhone 6s and 7.
  • The camera is EXCELLENT. I've been a photographer for the better part of my life, and can leave my Nikon at home and walk out with this and be confident that any shots I need to take, can be taken with this. HDR is a must.
  • 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.
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
  • SPEED, I was using a 6s and I notice a much snappier Safari and iMessage screens. Part of it may be IOS 10 but pages pop really fast. 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.There is no immediate benefit to the removal of the headphone jack. Yes, you do get more space for a little more speaker boost but one can easily argue that most people will listen to their music more via headphones than just out of their phone
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. I also noticed that it takes less to fully charge the phone.
  • The battery runs down very fast. I dont even make calls on it yet nor do i download any social app on it yet and it just ran down. Is it that the battery i got with the phone not good?
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
