The spec sheet above are the confirmed Samsung Galaxy Note 7 specifications the iPhone 7 specifications are yet to be confirmed as there are various leak and speculations online our blog post will be based on these.

7 Reasons the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is better than iPhone 7

1 – GIFing all the things

The Note 7 accompanies the best GIF-making addon we’ve seen on a Smartphone. The screen capture apparatus permits you to just choose a part of your screen with the S-Pen and tap record to catch and share a GIF of practically anything on your screen.

The Video above illustrate the Note 7 GIF making feature ; Credits : TNW

It even permits you to alter the GIF frame-by-frame and can save the record in low or high caliber for capacity purposes.

The main thing it won’t take a shot at is DRM-secured substance, (for example, Google Play Movies) yet that shouldn’t be an issue by and large. When in doubt, Samsung says the feature works with anything you can screenshot.

This lovely feature is not available on the almighty iPhone 7.

2 – Privacy when you require it

I’m not someone who actually cares about other people using my phone, but every once in a while, there are some things I want to keep private (say, buying a gift for my girlfriend). The Note 7 lets you save/access images, files, contacts and apps in an encrypted ‘Secured Folder’ which only you can open via an iris scan permit me to say Tecno even had this feature before Samsung on her Tecno Camon C9 (The irony of Life)


Samsung says the iris scans are more secure than fingerprints. More importantly, it adds a second tier of security, so you can give your friends and family fingerprint access, but still keep your most private items to yourself. Apple is still working on making its TouchID more secured after a major break through by a croatian hacker last year.

3 – Translation Made Easy

The S-Pen has been souped-up with translator capacities. You can enact the component by means of the Air command menu that appears when you slide out the pen, and then just hover over any content on your screen to interpret between 38 unique languages.


I don’t think Apple is planning to include any of this feature any time soon because they wouldn’t buy the idea of using Google service on any of there devices maybe we should look out for “Apple Translate”

4 – Long Lasting Battery

My friend got an iPhone 6s Plus but he still complains about low battery and later bought a power bank i just rock on with my Infinix Note 2 with massive 4000mAh battery. Call me an hater you can never compare the Note 7 Li-PO 3000mAh battery to iPhone 7 Non-removable Li-Po 1960 mAh battery. Don’t you think its dumb to buy a 200k smartphone and still move around with 5k worth of power bank? Think about it.

5 – A stronger body

N7 A stronger bodyOne of the calmer equipment reports on the Note 7 is executing a significantly more flexible screen. The Gorilla Glass 5 display should be 1.8 times harder than the past material, ready to withstand drops from shoulder tallness (or around 1.6 meters) onto concrete around 80 percent of the time.

6 – Waterproof

Go ahead, Listen to Music underwater

Maybe this should have come first but i don’t want to sound like an hater, yeah its true the Samsung Note 7 is waterproof and this i think is the reason most iPhone users in the USA are switching to Samsung like its free. The world is yet to see an iPhone that’s waterproof. You can swim with your phone and can also mix your garri with sugar via the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.


7 – It’s a true notepad

Apart for being a digitally awesome device the Samsung Note 7 is the most approximate to a real Notepad. The iPhone 7 is not even close to this beast.

The notes stay even after the screen is locked

While the Note 5 let you haul out your stylus to jot down your notes at whatever time without opening the Note 7 plus it by keeping those notes on your screen permanently (if you need). That implies you can record a basic supply list and just haul out your telephone as an update while never unlocking or turn on the device.


Oh, and you can use the pen underwater, if that’s your thing.


Everything you just read above have been compiled and composed based on reports, reviews and other internet documents TechPhreak has come across we don’t own or have access to any of this devices while writing this article but we just think this are the basic things you need to know that it’s lacking among this two devices. We hope you make the right choice and follow your mind while choosing one among this two lovely devices.

We love to hear from you via the comment section, thanks for reading. TechPhreak signing out.

Infinix Hot 3 : Specifications Price and Review


The Infinix  HOT 3 was announced last month on Infinix Mobility Social Networks, it was described as a Selfie Dedicated Phone for selfie lovers spotting a 8MP rear Camera and 2MP front facing camera. Hot 2 has similar specifications to this device but with a little bit of juice which is the 3000mAh Battery but Infinix Hot 2 users can also get themselves a 3000mAh Battery if they need one.


THE GOOD / Better Camera and Large 3000mAh Battery plus a premium look and feel.

THE BAD / This is an Upgrade for HOT 2 just with a larger battery and why is it not pre-loaded with Android 6.0 while its predecessor  received a Marshmallow upgrade last year.

THE BOTTOM LINE / Its a pretty good device, carefully crafted with great engineering and pretty specifications. Affordable and still gives you a 7 hours battery backup.

NOTE : My review is based on what have read from various blog, i don’t have this device and am yet to see it face to face but i gave this review based on pictures and facts.

2. Great Dual Front Sound Speakers

Even iPhone’s come in many variants nowadays, the Infinix Hot 5 is not excluded in this act of cheerfulness, coming in two variants which include Infinix Hot 5 and Infinix Hot 5 Lite both packing a very similar specifications. Infinix Hot 5 Lite is meant for those who need long lasting battery without fingerprint scanner, 2GB RAM, Dirac 3D stereo surrounding, Front dual camera.
