Samsung and HTC manufactured some of the fantastic top-end Android phones that made the iPhone users drool. These companies have outed their latest flagships and the comparisons are something that cannot be avoided. Galaxy S7 has been selling like hot cakes while the same cannot be said about the HTC 10. But that doesn’t mean the HTC’s offering in any inferior.
Let’s not talk about the specs as they are very identical. Both phones feature a 5.2-inch QHD resolution display but the underlying tech couldn’t be any different. Samsung opted for super AMOLED technology while HTC has something called as super LCD that rivals OLED displays in clarity and colour reproduction. Testing has proven that S7 has the best display in the smartphone world. The difference would be unnoticeable in the real world and both the displays are good in day to day usage.
The camera is another department that HTC lagged with its previous flagships. Samsung has equipped the phone with a camera that is far superior to the iPhone’s and DxOMark has touted it as the best mobile camera in the world. But HTC has surprised everyone by putting in a camera that not only beat the likes of Note 5 and nexus 6P, it even scored the same points as the S7 making it the co-best camera in the mobile business.
HTC flagships are generally beautiful and lead the industry by example. Even Apple copied certain elements from HTC M8 for its iPhone 6 and HTC 10 is no exception. It a beautiful phone. the S7 also has one of the best body design with metal and glass fusion. I personally prefer the HTC 10 with its chamfered edges and for the fact that it’s not a fingerprint magnet.
You won’t lose if you buy any of these two but the Galaxy S7 would be a better buy if the Ecosystem is considered. Samsung has made it compatible with futuristic services such as Samsung Pay and Gear VR. I declare the Galaxy S7 as a better buy based solely on this factor.
