In almost every year do people often look for the fastest and most powerful smartphone. Fortunately for them and every one else, there is always that one smartphone to take note of; this time its in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Packing only the best of Samsung's innovation, it’s a phablet that withholds nothing. Read more about the Note 7 here.
When you think about it, we quite literally using our smartphones for almost every single part of our life: Most people check their smartphones when they wake up, before they sleep, during the commute to work – even when we are stuck in traffic! We create, share, and consume information all through the smartphone, our all-in-one hub for our lives.
To be an all-in-one hub however, a smartphone has to be incredible on all aspects. From the very surface level design all the way to how the software is optimized – it all matters. And Samsung has done just that with their brand new Samsung Galaxy Note7, a big smartphone that thinks big. Let's get to it, shall we?
The Samsung Galaxy Note line of smartphones have often been touted as the hardest-hitting smartphones of the bunch in the entire lineup of Samsung smartphones. Design wise, however, it was never quite there until now with the Samsung Galaxy Note7. It is not just a design for aesthetics, it is a design with purpose.
You will notice that purpose when you pick up the Samsung Galaxy Note7.; you will notice how slim and premium it all feels. Sleek glass and cool metal meet together in soft 3D curves on the sides of the Note7 to create a single seamless pane. Its large 5.7-inch display is protected by the tough and durable Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and the display curves at the sides into the rear of the phone, providing a virtually bezel-less design on the sides.
The soft curves of the Note7 feels just right as it sits in the palm of your hand; no sharp edges digging into your palm as you pen your way through the phone with the S-Pen. And if you picked it up the wrong way, don't blame yourself; the Galaxy Note7 is perfectly symmetrical from the top to bottom, side to side, and front to back.
Samsung proved to us that smartphone displays don't have to be all neutral, flat, and super accurate in color; it has to be vibrant, fun, and make the viewer want to see more. Their Super AMOLED display technology revolutionized how great smartphone displays can look. Take a look at the front of the Samsung Galaxy Note7 and admire the beautiful 5.7-inch Super AMOLED quad HD resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels) display; you will instantly understand why a display has got to be fun to look at.
Pictures and videos all look gorgeous on the large quad HD display of the Note7. Never again will watching your video or playing your game on a smartphone feel inadequate; the Galaxy Note7's immersive display will put you right in the front seat of a great story and right in the middle of the most action packed scenes.
The Note7 also comes with mobile HDR (High Dynamic Range), a feature that lets you view crystal clear and realistic HDR videos. HDR videos deliver incredibly realistic light and contrast; you will experience a vibrancy that is just breathtaking.
On the back of the Note7 sits the very powerful 12 megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.7. The camera captures incredibly high quality and super detailed images, allowing you to capture life exactly the way you see it. Even if you're a bit shaky with the hands, the built-in OIS (optical image stabilization) feature will help to ensure that your shots stay shake-free.
And yes, the front facing 5 megapixel camera also capture great selfies of not just you, but also your friends and family thanks to its wide angle lens. It also has auto HDR to ensure that the lighting is always right with your self-portrait shots.
The Samsung S-Pen in the Galaxy Note7 is the stylus you never knew you needed. Let us all face it: we don't carry around pens and little notebooks as much anymore, we have our smartphones now. The S-Pen in the Note7 gives us the best of both worlds, having a great smartphone and also a great pen to write with – technically, anyway.
Click it in, pull it out. That is all you need to do to start writing down your notes with the Galaxy Note7, you don't even have to turn the display on. You can just start writing on the turned off display because of the innovative Always-On ambient display feature, letting you write down your thoughts almost instantaneously. Did we mention it feels like a real pen as well? The S-Pen now has a finer 0.7 mm tip that feels very much like the common ink pen, and up to 4096 levels of pressure so you can fully be in control with your writing.
