Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Smartphone Review

 

Explosive combination. The Note is finally available in Europe again. The launch, however, is overshadowed by technical problems causing a world-wide recall. We still had a look at the Galaxy Note 7.

great display, great camera, long battery runtimes, S-Pen with many features, generous sensor equipment, fast LTE Cat. 9, finally USB Type-C, OTG, protected against water and dust (IP 68), quick-charge and wireless charging, fast SoC

which throttles under sustained load, medicore speaker, bad WiFi performance, possibilities of USB 3.1 are not utilized, Iris scanner not fully developed, neither MHL nor SlimPort support

Samsung offers another great smartphone with the Galaxy Note 7, which does not have a real competitor in its class. No other smartphone offers a comparatively powerful tool like the S-Pen, which has been consequently improved by the manufacturer and is...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been recalled and is no longer sold. No one should use this phone.

Top-of-the-line performance. Fantastic display. Improved S Pen design and functionality. Reasonably easy to handle for the size. Highly attractive, distinctive edge design.

Faulty batteries in some models. Expensive. Carrier bloatware.

Conclusions The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is undoubtedly one of the best phablets available, but at $850, it's also the priciest. That's not to say it isn't worth it; you get a powerful processor, one of the best displays available, a surprisingly svelte...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 was the best phablet you could buy, until it was recalled.

The Galaxy Note 7 was the best smartphone Samsung made in 2016. It was beautiful as the S7 Edge, but it was as functional as every other Note before it. The Note series is one of our personal favorites, and we were glad that Samsung was folding the...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (64GB, blue coral)

 

It has a gorgeous, symmetrical design that looks particularly stunning in Coral Blue. It takes great photos and has both the water resistance and expandable memory slot that last year's Galaxy Note 5 lacked (oh yeah, there is no Note 6). Battery life...

The Galaxy Note 7 is a beautiful, capable Android phone that showcases Samsung's best in design, battery life, speed and features. The 64GB base model leaves you plenty of space for photos, videos and games, and it's a real improvement over 2015's Note 5.

It's pricier than almost every other Android phone, and a little heavy. After seven iterations, there are still minor problems writing with the S Pen stylus. Fine particles, like beach sand, can wedge the stylus in its holder.

The Galaxy Note 7 is the best no-compromise, big-screen phone you can buy if price is no object. All but the most devoted stylus lovers, however, will do just as well with the cheaper S7 models.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review – The best Android of 2016

 

You could forgive Samsung for gloating with the Galaxy Note 7 ; after all, the phablet category the original Note created was dismissed by many as a sure-fire flop. People laughed at its size, its stylus, and its price, and yet time after time,...

Sleek, high quality metal and glass build ; Superb Super AMOLED display ; Genuinely useful S Pen and software ; Class-leading camera ; Excellent battery life

Expensive ; Large compared to more mainstream phones ; No USB-C video out

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

Between its first-rate screen, powerful performance and an improved S Pen, the Galaxy Note 7 was perhaps the best Android phones money could buy when it launched. However, after repeated reports of exploding batteries Samsung issued a recall. Even...

When I reviewed the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge earlier this year, I was already convinced Samsung was operating at the top of its game. After using phones as well crafted as those, I didn't think it would be possible to love the inevitable follow-up as...

The Samsung Galaxy Note7 (S820) Review

 

This year has been difficult for smartphones, which is a bit of a paradox when you consider just how much better things have gotten compared to last year. With Snapdragon 820, 650, 652, and 625 we've finally moved past the shadow of the Snapdragon 810,...

The Galaxy Note7 goes on sale August 19 on all four major carriers and at least a few preorders will be arriving within the coming days for an average price of 850 USD for the 64GB SKU in Blue Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Black Onyx.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5

 

Samsung's Galaxy Note phablet is growing up this year. It's got a new curved-edge screen, new higher-precision (to say nothing of waterproof) S Pen, and even a new name, joining the earlier Galaxy S flagships as part of Samsung's club-7.

Flat screens still have a certain appeal, especially for media playback ; microUSB support means no compatibility problems with older accessories ; Audio sounds more well-rounded than the Note 7's output ; Considerably cheaper at this point

There are so many things the Note 7 does better than the Note 5, or offers features wholly missing on last year's model, that it's difficult to point to one main selling point for the new Note.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review

 

I don't know how hard it is to build a great smartphone, but market intelligence shows that most companies are failing, so it's got to be pretty hard out there. Samsung, however, is among the very few that have found great success in this business. The...

Flashy appearance ; Superb hardware ; Generous storage space ; Extremely versatile software ; S Pen works well ; Secure Folder is superb new feature

Iris scanner is unreliable ; Fingerprint scanner could be better ; Edge screen’ functionality is mostly useless ; Camera post-processing is a bit too aggressive

The Galaxy Note 7 is an almost incomprehensibly versatile smartphone. It can do so much right out of the box! However, the large screen, the seemingly endless functionality, and all of that S Pen goodness are obviously… not for everybody. So who is it...
