Which is the best flagship phone? Is Apple’s new smartphone worth the upgrade from the iPhone 6s? We compare the heavyweight contenders.

UPDATED: There’s no doubt that Apple and Samsung are the dominant forces in the smartphone market, so with the release of the new iPhones, it’s logical to compare them against Samsung’s flagships.

There’s a lot at stake, because as it happens, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is our favourite Android smartphone.

So how do the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus compare to Samsung’s top-shelf phones? Or, if you have an iPhone 6s, are you better off skipping this upgrade?

In this feature, we’ll help you with your upgrade path with our head-to-head comparisons: Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 and Apple iPhone 7 vs Apple iPhone 6s. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Note 7’s recall means that this Android phablet is no longer an option, although our Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comparison might be instructive for those considering the large-screen Apple phone.
