Which one is best for you?
These two older models from Apple and Samsung have enduring popularity – and while they don’t have all the features of later editions, come with a more modest price tag, too.
The Galaxy S7 is small and light – you’ll hardly notice its in your pocket – and features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display that’s great for viewing pictures and video. iPhone 6s Plus has a larger 5.5-inch LED-backlit display with 3D touch, giving you enhanced access to compatible apps.
Both have 12-megapixel cameras, but the more recent iPhone 6s Plus also has optical image stabilisation – helping you take smoother video whatever the conditions. See our quick summaries for more info, or select the phone you’re intersted in for the full picture.
