After Apple's release of the iPhone 6, the company is expected to roll out the iPhone 7 that would feature a 4.7-inch display with 400 ppi, iOS 9, 2 GB of RAM, and others. On the other hand, Samsung is going to release the Galaxy S6 successor, the Galaxy S7, which is expected to come out with a 5.5-inch display with 4K resolution, Android 6.0, 4 GB of RAM, and many more. Comparing these two devices, how would each differ in their performances? What are the potential benefits each device could give to consumers? A table will show.

Ever since 2015 began, Apple has reaped a whopping $58 billion with $13.6 billion net profit, claiming that they have sold over 61 million iPhones since January. On the other hand, a Samsung "earnings forecast" showed an expected net profit of 5.3 trillion won ($4.9 billion), which represents a 30% drop from 7.6 trillion won a year earlier. The release of the Galaxy S6 seems to be not enough. However, sales are expected to bounce back in Q2 once the S6 goes on sale.
