During the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, Sony and Samsung officially announced their latest handheld devices - the Sony Xperia Z5 and Samsung Galaxy S7.

To see which is the most powerful between these two devices, let us put these two Android flagship head to head.

In term of the screen size, Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone features a 5.1-inch display screen with a QHD resolution of 1440 x 2560 and is equipped with Samsung's Super AMOLED technology. While the Sony Xperia Z5 smartphon features 5.2-inch display screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels - which is a little bit bigger than the Samsung S7.

For its processor, the S7 smartphone is powered by the Exynos 8890 octa-core processor with four 2.3GHZ cores, and four cores clocked at 1.6GHz. According to Samsung, this device can support high performance gaming and 600Mbps download speeds. On other hand, the Z5 smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor. The device is also equipped with an octa-core processor, but it clocked at slightly slower speeds with 2GHz and 1.5GHz for its respective core clusters.

In terms of RAM, the S7 smartphone sports 4 GB of RAM, while the Z5 has only 3 GB RAM. Meanwhile, the Samsung S7 also uses the newly released Vulkan graphics API GPU. According to the Samsung, the S7 is the first smartphone to utilize the new standard and it promises to bring a higher graphics performance and image quality.

The Sony Xperia Z5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone are both powered by Android operating system. In terms of the battery, the S7 has a 3,000 mAh capacity battery, which is 500mah larger than its predecessor - Galaxy S6. The Z5's battery capacity battery is a bit disappointing since it will only last about 11h 29m on normal usage, whereas the S6  will last two hours longer. In addition, both devices also support fast charging capabilities, which is quite impressive.

In terms of camera quality, Samsung has made some improvements in low light photography. The device is also upped with the aperture size increased to f/1.7, as opposed to f/1.9 on the S6 and f/2.0 on the Z5. This allows 25 per cent more light to reach the sensor, resulting in much higher quality shots in poor lighting conditions. The S7 also supports a dual pixel sensor, which will improve autofocus speed and accuracy.
