A Samsung Galaxy S7 user has credited his survival from a shipwreck in the Philippines to the flagship phone’s waterproof capability. The Galaxy S7 managed to work properly even after being submerged in water, allowing the user to contact authorities and seek help.

Samsung disclosed the incident on 30 August, which took place when the user was on a mid-sized boat heading towards Sabang Beach in central Philippines for a scuba dive trip with 10 other divers on 30 July. The vessel suddenly overturned amid a storm and the passengers were stranded on the foundering vessel for about an hour.

The user – whose identity has been withheld – narrated the incident to Samsung and said it was through the phone that he could contact authorities for help in time. He also added that his Galaxy S7 had more than 50% power although in had been over 24 hours since the last charged the battery of the phone.

Samsung’s S7 series has an IA68 rating, meaning it is equipped with gears that can withstand dust, dirt, sand, and is resistant to submersion in water for up to a maximum depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. The same technology has been used by Samsung in the recently launched Galaxy Note 7 as well.

Samsung Galaxy S7 vs iPhone 7: Major Specs

Samsung Galaxy S7

  • Display: 5.1in Super AMOLED 2560×1440 pixels (QHD), 577ppi (Galaxy S7 edge: 5.5in, 534ppi)
  • Storage: 32GB/64GB onboard , microSD slot
  • CPU and RAM: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820/Samsung Exynos 8890 processor (region dependent), 4GB RAM
  • Front Camera: 5MP
  • Rear Camera: 12.2MP, f/1.7 aperture, 1.4um pixels, dual-pixel 100% phase detection sensor
  • IP68 water and dust proofing (1.5m submersion up to 30 minutes)
  • Battery: 3,000mAh (Galaxy S7 edge: 3,600mAh) NON-removable

iPhone 7

  • Display: 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch 3D Touch, 1334×750 and 1920×1080 pixel resolutions, wide colour gamut
  • Storage: 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB
  • CPU and RAM: A10 Fusion processor, 3GB RAM
  • Front Camera: 7MP with wide angle lens
  • Rear Camera: Dual-lens 12MP – telephoto and wide-angle (for the Plus model), 4K video recording, optical image stabilization, /1.8 aperture, new 6-element lens, new image signal processor, quad-LED flash with flicker sensor
  • NO headphone jack, Lightning port, Stereo speakers
  • IP67 water and dust proofing
  • Capacitive Home key with Haptic engine
  • Samsung muddied the waters somewhat at launch by taking a leaf out of Apple’s playbook and not disclosing much information about the processor hardware. We already knew from earlier rumours that both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC’s would be inside various iterations of each Galaxy S7 model, and we knew 4GB of RAM was rumoured too. However, all Samsung said on launch day is that the Galaxy S7 has a 30% CPU performance uplift over the previous generation, and a 64% speed enhancement to the GPU, along with the introduction of a liquid-cooled heatpipe and heatsink setup to help in high-performance situations.
  • With the passage of time, of course, we now have a clearer picture. For the European, UK, and North American markets we know we’re looking at Samsung’s Exynos chipset; although it’s pretty much a moot point as the two SoCs are more or less comparable.
  • Apple’s iPhone 7 uses the new A10 Fusion chipset with a boosted 3GB of RAM – the most inside any iPhone to date. The firm is promising one fifth of the battery consumption for around a 40% increase in power over the previous generation A9 chip.
  • On the storage side of things, Samsung hasn’t exactly pushed the boat out with only 32GB and 64GB options, though each does support microSD card expansion. Apple’s re-jigged its storage variety with a 32GB base model, skipping 64GB entirely and going straight to 128GB and 256GB higher tiers. As usual though, there’s no microSD support at all.
  • As far as the battery is concerned, Samsung’s gone for a sizeable 3000mAh in the Galaxy S7 and 3600mAh in the Galaxy S7 EDGE – both should provide plenty of juice on a single charge, and we found in our review testing that you will indeed get a lot of mileage out of the Galaxy S7 series. Apple hasn’t revealed much about its battery tech, other than to state that you will get an hour or two more out of your daily charge than the iPhone 6s series.

Samsung Galaxy S7 vs  iPhone 7: Design & Display

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 EDGE design hasn’t changed a great deal from the Galaxy S6 series, but then, why should it? The existing design language is bloody marvelous with a pleasing shape fashioned from metal and glass. Samsung did reintroduce water and dust proofing for the Galaxy S7 series, however, making it even better than its predecessor. On the display side of things, Samsung remains the undisputed king of smartphone screens with its universally acclaimed Super AMOLED tech. The current crop of devices offer a fantastic range of features, including an excellent colour gamut, superb contrast and brightness, and some of the sharpest visuals you’ll find on a mobile to date.

The iPhone 7 design isn’t massively different from the iPhone 6s either; the antenna bands have been moved to a more discrete location, and the physical Home key has been swapped for a capacitive Haptic touch one. However, the BIG change here is that this is the first iPhone generation with water an dust proofing – at last an iPhone where a dunk in the bath isn’t a death sentence. Apple’s iPhone 7 series re-uses the same size and resolution IPS LCD Retina displays we’ve seen before, which are decent quality. But it has also upgraded the brightness levels by 25% and dropped in a super wide colour gamut for more pop.

Samsung Galaxy S7 vs  iPhone 7: Camera

Samsung’s camera tech is pretty impressive and capable, while also being extremely easy to use and get good results for even the most inexperienced and non-camera-savvy users. It features a 12MP sensor with an f/1.7 aperture size, an optical image stabilisation (OIS) module, dual-LED two-tone flash, and Samsung’s amazing dual-pixel phase detection autofocus.

It remains to be seen how well Apple’s camera tech performs, but this is where the most advanced changes on the iPhone 7 series have taken place. The standard iPhone 7 model features a 12MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, OIS, an updated 6-element lens, a quad-LED TrueTone LED flash with flicker sensor (for capture in artificial lighting), and a new image signal processor. For the larger iPhone 7 Plus model things get even more involved as it has two 12MP sensors in a dual-sensor setup; one sensor has a telephoto lens and the other a wide-angle lens; combining all the image data for a much more detailed image as standard, but also allowing for a x2 optical zoom and 10x software zoom, and Bokeh depth-of-field effects.

All the Best……………………



It's only fair to share…
