+Varun Singh It’s your preference. But you sais that S7 has worse color accuracy than iPhone 7. That’s not true. S7 has better calibration if that’s what you’re after.

Noor Hussain The Axon 7 may have better speakers but the V20 has a much better DAC. I have tested MANY devices with high impedance headphones and the V20 simply destroys every other phone. Only a few come close.

Gabilleta … I’m sure the v20 is good… have you tried the HTC 10 ?

Reply
Gabilleta - posted on December 28, 2016 2:26 am

jonah travisano I have tried pretty much every flagship device and some mid-rangers as well. When it comes to which device has the best DAC, the V20 is the champ so far for 2016. It can power headphones up to 600 ohms which is insane. I use 50 ohms headphones and I can’t go past 50% volume without it getting uncomfortable and loud. If you use regular headphones, you’ll barely notice the difference.

why did the Galaxy S7 edge didn’t make as a winner or a runner up on Camera category while it is WAY more better than iPhone’s camera the only feature that I think the iPhone 7 shines is its telephoto lens, while Samsung’s amazibg camera feature is it has a very fast autofocus and it bright aperture that is best for lowlight scenarios..

CookehMonstashe a lot of factors contribute to that – the display itself costs less to make; the assembly is easier to replace so there is less risk (more risk=higher cost) etc

+S Watson even so, samsung screens are oled and 2k compared to iphone’s 1080 led. no matter the replacement difficulty, the materials of a samsung oled screen will cost more than iphone’s

the basic mode makes it very undersaturated imo, makes colors more dull than just about every screen I have
