    Pros: iOS, smooth, fast, will last you for years to come with supported software updates, great camera, it just works.

    Cons: no headphone jack, simple and no customisation.

    Not without you saying what you want your phone to do or what other devices you have such as an ipad or Mac?
    Since you are on an Apple forum, most will tell you the iP7. Also kind of assuming that is the way you are leaning given that you are here?

    Do you have an Apple store nearby for service? For me it is 100+ miles each way. Not exactly just around the corner.
    But Samsung service is mostly mail to TX service dept. Could be a big difference for some right there.

    Regardless, here are all of the specs compared side by side at link.

    & these guys are fairly objective comparing both devices.

    I had owned iPhones from iPhone 3 to iPhone 5 but after the 5 I went to various Samsung devices exclusively. The new benchmarks for the iPhone 7 made me take another look at the device and I ended up getting one the first day that they went on sale in Thailand. I had gotten away from the phablet-sized devices so I went with the 7 instead of the 7+. Pluses, it's so fast and smooth and it seems that everything works the way it should every time.

    Minuses are having to use iTunes to transfer my songs, etc. every time I want to put a new song or album on my phone I have to fire up iTunes. My biggest complaint is no notification LED, anytime that I'm around the phone I will hear it or see if a message, etc, comes in but when I come in from jogging, etc. I like just looking and seeing if the notification light is on. With the iPhone I have to pick it up and manually look at notifications. Still I am still using it and the lack of an LET light isn't that much after you get used to it.

    Totally agree with the LED light & itunes. Both of those are the two things that keep me hesitant about switching over.
