Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was unveiled recently, much to the excitement of tech enthusiasts worldwide. However, its hefty price tag has made cash-strapped techies look for other options, such as the recently released and more affordable Asus ZenFone 3.
If you are among the individuals who are still undecided about which smartphone to pick up, we have gathered Galaxy Note 7 specs and details about Asus ZenFone 3?s most premium variant, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe, to help you decide.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe have a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. However, what makes the Note 7 better is how it is the first Samsung phone to be marketed with a Mobile High Dynamic Range (HDR) display, carrying 1,440 x 2,560 pixels (Quad HD) display resolution (518ppi) versus the ZenFone 3 Deluxe?s 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a powerful Exynos 8890 chip (14nm, octa-core, 2.6GHz, Cat.12) – the same one that was used in the Galaxy S7. Asus? counterpart runs on a 64-bit Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor.
Samsung?s latest handset carries the same 4GB LPDDR4 RAM as its predecessor, but its storage capacity has doubled from Galaxy Note 5?s standard 32GB storage capacity to 64GB storage.
Meanwhile, the Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe has two variants: a 6GB DDR4 RAM with 64GB of memory, and a 6GB DDR4 RAM with 256GB of memory.
Both devices have a microSD card slot that can boost storage, but Samsung has and an ultra-fast Universal Flash Storage 2.0 (UFS 2.0) that can read files 2.7x faster than the usual mobile phones.
The camera of Samsung?s Galaxy Note 7 has only 12 megapixels ? almost half of Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe?s 23 megapixel camera capability.
However, this is simply because the South Korean giant has supposedly re-purposed the Galaxy S7?s camera to make it Dual Pixel. This means that every single pixel that is captured has two photodiodes, allowing images to focus much faster.
The accurate aperture of the Galaxy Note 7 also reportedly allows users to shoot better even in low light.
The Note 7 features a 3,500mAh battery, which is more powerful compared to Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe?s 3,000mAh power supply.
