Samsung Galaxy S7 vs iPhone 6s: Flagship Smartphone Battle 2016

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S7 at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, and now the new flagship smartphone is being pitted against Apple's iPhone 6s to see which device is more superior.

Both flagship smartphones have their respective special features. The Galaxy S7 boasts of its dust and water resistance, which have not been included in its predecessor. It can also be submerged in water up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
