7.1mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

77.9mm

67.1mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.height

158.2mm

138.3mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Display

1.resolution

1080 x 1920px

750 x 1334px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

401ppi

326ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.has branded damage-resistant glass
Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Apple iPhone 7
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
4.screen size

5.5"

4.7"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Apple iPhone 7
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Apple iPhone 7
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.

Performance

1.Has integrated LTE
Apple iPhone 6s Plus (Apple A9)
Apple iPhone 7 (Apple A10 Fusion)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
2.CPU speed

2 x 1.84GHz

4 x 2.34GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
3.Has integrated graphics
Apple iPhone 6s Plus (Apple A9)
Apple iPhone 7 (Apple A10 Fusion)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
4.RAM
