Eric Schmidt is a very eclectic man. He could be caught using an iPhone any given day, but he still has all his chips in Android and also uses a Samsung Galaxy S7, apparently. Oh, and he also made a hard declaration that he thinks the Samsung Galaxy S7 is flat out better.
While any would assume that stance based on his affiliation and history with Google and Android, he actually gave a pretty good reason why: battery life. The 3,000mAh battery inside the Galaxy S7 trumps anything any iPhone is able to offer, and that’s that.
Of course, that isn’t the only factor to a great smartphone, but it’s certainly an important one, and it seems to be important enough for Schmidt that he didn’t second guess on his device of choice.
