Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are taking on Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. It’s Samsung that is ruling the Smartphone market for years by providing the best users experience after Apple. Samsung manages to ship out great numbers of handset each quarter. The number might be decreasing a bit these days but still the revenue and number of handsets they are shipping is really attractive.
This Smartphone industry is really good at coping each other. For example Apple introduces its flagship devices including some of the android features while Samsung incorporates some of the iPhone features in their devices.
But the recent Mobile World Congress revealed something different picture that showed Samsung has hardly copied any feature from iPhone. Most of the features in Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are original that indicated their innovation and creativity.
But Samsung has stolen an interesting feature from iPhone 6S and that is Live Photos.
Live Photos is a great feature in iPhone 6S that let the users capture short videos at low frame rate whenever any still images are captured. Now if a firm press is offered on that photo in gallery, it will start playing animation with sound. But as Samsung is not equipped with the 3D touch feature, so it requires you to press on a tiny icon to play the animation.
Another feature stolen by Samsung to incorporate in Galaxy S7 is the Selfie Flash. This one is taken from Apple again, however, this tech giant company is not the one and only company to create this feature, rather Snapchat too has the similar feature.
The feature lets the display light up when a selfie is captured.
Samsung did not borrow any other feature except these two from iPhone, so book one and explore the cool and innovative features that Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have to offer.
The smartphone industry has been a game of back and forth for the pat few years. Apple releases a new iPhone that copies some key Android features and adds on some new functionality of its own. Then Android vendors copy those new features and add on a few more of their own. And so on, and so forth.
But at this year’s Mobile World Congress trade show, we couldn’t help but notice that the three biggest smartphone announcements focused on phones that brought something new to the table. You can read about them here. Instead of copying the iPhone 6s’ key features and piling on a few more, they offered original functionality and even some innovation.
