Detailed Review of Samsung Galaxy Note7
Samsung Pretty Serious about Security
First of all, there is iris scanner which allows you to unlock your device with your eyes. This is the first time any smartphone has managed to pull it off, so we are pretty excited about this new addition. However, Samsung isn’t solely relying on this feature as it has provided several other security and privacy features as well. You can also use the numerical lock feature (passwords) or fingerprint scanner. Both of these features are equally helpful, and help you keep away the people that want to take a peek at your device.
An Impressive New Design
Samsung wasn’t really known for its design a couple of years back but lately, they have changed that about themselves and are making their smartphones look really good. Samsung Edge was an awesome looking device and the new Galaxy Note7 takes inspiration from it. It is brilliantly crafted and looks awesome in the hands. It is not too fat and not too thin either – it’s the perfect balance of both. The curved displays have become a trend nowadays and Samsung seems to be in fashion as well. Galaxy Note7 phablet also boasts a curved display which makes every icon and the background colors standout. Samsung may have been falling behind in terms of design, but with this new addition, the tech giant has really stepped up their game.
Waterproof S-Pen Stylus is a Winner
S-Pen Stylus was an amazing addition in the previous phones as it allowed people to draw and write everything they wanted. However, there was just one problem, kids played with it a lot and they took it all sorts of places including bathrooms where it became wet and caused problems. However, in Galaxy Note7, you won’t be facing this problem anymore as it comes with waterproof S-Pen Stylus. This means that you can draw anything you want on it even if you are in your bathtub. That’s an amazing addition and parents with children would certainly appreciate it.
Samsung Galaxy Note7 is a Keeper
Coming to specifications, this phablet boasts 5.7-inch screen, integrated S-Pen Stylus, 12MP camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage space, and ports for headphones and microSD cards. These specs are exactly what you’d expect from a next-gen smartphone and thankfully, Samsung has delivered on all fronts. If you have been ignoring phablets until now, then we seriously suggest giving Galaxy Note7 a chance.
