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.
