The Samsung Galaxy S7 was released in the first quarter of 2016. And a few days ago, the HTC 10 was unveiled, posing a serious threat to its rivals. So, we decided to compare the specifications of both devices and find out how they are pitted against each other on the basis of different categories as below:
Design and Display
The HTC 10 is clad in an all-metal body and has chamfered edges on the front and the rear sides. On the front, you will sport a fingerprint scanner, flanked by capacitive buttons. This time, the front-facing speakers are replaced with BoomSound, also called BoomSound Hi-Fi edition.
The Samsung Galaxy S7, on the other hand, weighs less and is lighter and slimmer than the HTC 10. On the front, there’s a fingerprint scanner that is placed within a button on it. This is missing on the HTC 10. Also, the S7 is waterproof and dustproof with IP68 certification.
HTC 10’s screen is a slightly larger at 5.2-inches with Super LCD 5 and Quad HD resolution. The pixel resolution is 565ppi, capable of delivering crispy and bright images. The Galaxy S7, on the other hand, has a 5.1-inch display screen with super AMOLED and quad HD resolution. Owing to AMOLED technology, the screen offers brighter and more vibrant colors than LCD.
The HTC 10 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon and is supported by 4GB of RAM. There are two options for internal storage capacity- 32GB and 64GB. The battery capacity is 3,000mAH that can be charged via USB Type-C, and is also supported by Quick Charge 3.0.
The S7 is available in two models – one is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, while the other is boosted with Exynos Octa 8 chip. Like the HTC 10, both variants of the S7 have 4GB of RAM, in 32GB and 64GB storage options. The battery capacity is also the same at 3,000mAH just like the HTC 10, reports Pocket Lint.
The US price of the unlocked HTC 10 is $700, according to GSM Arena, while the Galaxy S7 price is $670, notes Samsung. It can, hence, be summed up that both devices are pretty much up against each other with great specs and features. Considering the price, if you want a cheaper model, the S7 gets a thumbs up.
