Samsung Galaxy Note 7

 

Until Samsung fixes the Galaxy Note 7's dangerous exploding battery problems, we cannot recommend this drop-dead gorgeous, powerful, fully loaded phablet.

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 (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

 

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 is the best phablet you can buy.

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

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,...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review: Sleeker, simpler, better than ever

 

Until Samsung addresses a widespread battery issue that has led to several dozen explosions and a global recall, we cannot recommend our readers buy the Note 7 (It's been temporarily discontinued anyway). When an upgraded model is released with safer...

Comfortable and well-designed ; Top-tier performance ; Gorgeous, curved display ; Excellent battery life ; Top-notch camera ; TouchWiz has been cleaned up

Recalled due to exploding batteries ; Expensive ; Iris scanner doesn't work well with eyeglasses ; S Pen still won't win over naysayers ; Updated S Pen feels flimsier

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...

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...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review: the best and worst of smartphones

 

This is the best Smartphone Samsung has built for 20 years, and at the same time, the most problematic. The chances of you owning this device, the latest of one of the most successful smartphone series on the market, is limited because Samsung recalled...

Best camera on the market ; Unmatched design ; High display quality ; USB Type-C ; Large internal storage capacity ; S-Pen ; Game Tool software ; IP68 certification

Its battery explodes ; Performance ; Mono audio

The Galaxy Note 7 has a great design, display and camera. What's more, the software is good and the battery can last all day. Despite the high price, the Galaxy Note 7 would be a complete package if it wasn't for the battery problems.
