Samsung Galaxy Note7: 5 best and 5 worst things

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Today I want to show off five pros and five cons to the Samsung Galaxy Note seven has so let's jump right into it let's start it off with what the note 7 does best one design straight up this is one of the most comfortable and sexiest looking smartphones I have held to date the all-around glass encasing and brushed aluminum finish give it a premium and solid feel in the hand and for the cherry on top the display and back are both curved to give it a symmetrical shape definitely a huge step up from the galaxy note 5 to display with a 5.7 inch quad HD Super AMOLED panel there's no

Surprise that this screen looks amazing it's one of the brightest displays I've ever seen on a smartphone even outshining the galaxy s7 great viewing angles deep blacks punchy colors and tons of pixels are all precious to look at Plus that curved edge makes this phone look somewhat bezel s and I love swiping left or right because everything looks like it's spilling off the border if there's something I love doing on the smart phone its watching videos or playing games because the experience just doesn't get any better than this on a smart phone of course three camera

Although it's the same camera module from the galaxy s7 I think Samsung didn't really feel the need to upgrade it because it's already great so you still get 12 megapixels a wide F 1.7 aperture lens dual pixel autofocus optical image stabilization LED flash and up to 4k video recording pictures taken always come out looking solid especially in good lighting with an insanely fast autofocus so you don't have to worry about that blurry picture popping up when you're in a hurry in low-light scenarios photos do look decent showing the entire area clearly

And even though there is a bit of grain in some pictures it's still a better shooter than most other smartphones I have got in my hands on samsung always seems to know the camera and the note 7 is no different for S Pen although some people say they don't really use the s-pen that often I still love that Samsung is providing a feature that no other smartphone has and when you actually use it there's some pretty cool stuff that I would find difficult to accomplish if I didn't have a stylus to begin with I can hit tiny tap targets much more

Easily when compared to using my thumb enlarge pictures or videos without opening them or even screen grabbing a specific part of the display instead of screen shooting the entire panel sure some things are a bit gimmicky to use in real-world situations but for what it's worth I think it's the simple things that make the s-pen shine five software this year TouchWiz has got any horn you look coding the grace UX these system settings icons quick settings panel lock screen and folders look cleaner

Flatter and up to date you also get some cool new features such as a blue light filter to protect your eyes from looking at a bright display at night and iris scanner to unlock your phone with your eyeballs some intense power saving modes a secure folder to lock sensitive information and Samsung clouds to backup and restore user data I definitely love what Samsung has done with the software almost every feature that implemented is either useful or very creative switching over to the flaws and please keep in mind that some of these are your bit nitpicky so they

Are undesirable features but nothing that will make you believe that the note 7 is a horrible device one buttons let's start with the button specifically the recent and back key at this point it doesn't seem like Samsung is going to swap the order if you've been using a Samsung device for a while now chances are you probably won't find this to be an issue but for someone who was switching from a nexus LG ZTE Motorola or any other Android that uses the traditional navigation bar it'll definitely take some time to adapt to being a print magnet slippery and

Scratches remember that glass encasing we discussed at the beginning of the video well even though it makes the phone look sexy it's not going to be a pretty sight when it drops and cracks this thing is very slippery tends to scratch up easily on the back and it's a fingerprint magnet I actually ended up dropping our original review for this reason while pulling it out of my pocket and you screen cracked on the top edge so that kind of sucked try slapping AD Brad skin if you decide to get the note 7 it makes the phone feel grippy gets rid of all the smudges and scratches and

There's a wide selection of skins to choose from so you shouldn't have a problem finding one that suits you best I'll link it down below if you want to check one out for yourself 3 no adoptable storage this is not even a huge problem just me being nitpicky but it's still worth noting that adoptable storage is not an option for those looking to expand their system storage with a micro SD card and even though 64 gigabytes does seem like a lot for most people including myself there are still others who would we miss having the option of keeping all

Of their data in the same pool of storage just looking out for everyone that's it for performance now I know where you're thinking why would a flagship with a Snapdragon 820 chip and four gigabytes of RAM be a bad thing I bet the device is buttery smooth and it is but I do believe it's noticeably slower than other Snapdragon 820 devices like the Galaxy s7 moto Z or even the axon seven I know some of you might be upset and dislike the video for that reason but I'm just being a hundred percent with you Samsung is not looking to create the

Fastest phone on the market it seems to me that Samsung is just throttling the CPU to increase power efficiency but not to the point where it lags or feels sluggish in other words the note 7 is snappy but it's not going to impress you five expensive the last thing I want to discuss is the price point off contract the note is going to cost you around 850 dollars that's $150 more than a note 5 at launch $200 higher than the regular Galaxy s7 any hundred dollars more than the s7 edge that's a lot of money especially since you have devices that have similar

Specs that cut the bill in half with the note 7 you're getting a bigger display the s-pen iris scanner and a few new software features if you're a baller and you want these extra goodies then by all means go for it but for the average Joe eight hundred and fifty dollars is probably way too expensive for a smartphone that's just going to be outdated in around a year so that's it for this video thank you so much for watching if you enjoyed it make sure to go ham on that like button check out Andrew please calm for your latest and greatest news on Android definitely let
