Comparison: Galaxy S7 vs iPhone® 7
Views Specs

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then we’re very flattered. Perhaps the iPhone 8 will feature fast wireless charging, mobile payments and expandable memory. Check out the table below and you’ll see what we mean.

The camera is unbelievable

The GS7 is the first phone with a professional grade Dual Pixel Sensor camera. Every pixel has two photodiodes instead of one, so it can focus almost as quickly and as accurately as your eyes. That means crisper, clearer photos, especially in low light situations.

You can get it wet

The GS7 has a higher water resistance rating than the iPhone 7. With its IP68 rating it can handle submersion in up to 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes. You won't have to worry about putting your GS7 down on wet surfaces or using it in the rain or at the beach.

Fast wireless charging

After introducing wireless charging for the Galaxy S5 in 2014 we’ve focused on making it fast. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve gone one better with the Galaxy S7. Go from flat to fully charged in just 90 minutes* without having to deal with tangled cables!

Big battery

Let’s face it, we’ve all become a bit obsessed with checking the battery levels on our phones. And for good reason; a flat phone when you’re about to head out for the night is a fear for us all. Our large battery, coupled with ultra-power saving mode (not to mention super-fast charging) means you are much less likely to be faced with a dead phone when you need it most.

Expandable memory

You have the option to extend storage capacity by inserting a Micro SD card3. You won’t need to delete any files, music, photos or videos.

Mobile payments

Enjoy the security and convenience of the ANZ goMoney Wallet and ASB Virtual Apps when on the go. So leave that wallet at home and enjoy travelling light. It’s a simple, safe way to pay for everyday items, and is available now on any NZ mobile network.

Enter a virtual world

Sometimes you can’t tell the whole story, until you see the full 360 degree picture. In news, in sports, in action a 360 degree view will reveal the scene everyone’s been missing. All this is now possible, thanks to the launch of Samsung’s new Gear 360 camera, which lets you create photos and videos with a seamless 360-degree field of view for photos and videos. Combine it with the Gear VR headset and get ready for a fully immersive experience. Both the Gear 360 and VR are designed to work with the Galaxy S7. Gear VR and Gear 360 sold separately.

Curved screen (Galaxy S7 edge)

The larger dual-edge display of the GS7 edge is more than beautiful. It lends depth to your movies and breathes life into your games.
