iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy S7
Which one is best for you?
Samsung’s Galaxy S7 dropped in 2016 to great acclaim. Improving on the previous year’s groundbreaking S6, the Galaxy S7 was a great phone, but how does it stack up against the 2018 offering from Apple?
iPhone XS Max is the latest plus-size iPhone, and is therefore much bigger, with a 6.5-inch OLED screen compared to the S7’s 5.1-inch display. Both screens deliver outstanding colours and contrast.
Samsung’s camera is excellent for low light performance. Apple have concentrated on in-camera processing, introducing a host of smart new features such as Smart HDR, giving photos cleaner contrast and more realistic exposure.
