Samsung Galaxy Note7 Review

Score: 79.5 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Note7 is a totally fascinating phone launched some years ago, in 2016, packing a really big 5.7" screen, a high performance 2150 MHz Quad-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 megapixels front side camera. That's everything we have to say? No, it's only the starting point of a much deeper review.

This device comes with an exceptional Quad-Core processing unit clocking at 2.15 gigahertz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chip and a large 4 GB of RAM memory. This cellphone has an amazing 64 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory slot, allowing the user to install tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about filling it.

Whereas this cellphone just has 6.04 inches long, it manages to pack a 5.7" screen. Being just 0.31" thick,the Note7 is incredibly thin and good-looking. Samsung has made an excellent job making this cellphone as lightweight as 5.96 oz. Samsung offers the Note7 in a wide range of color options, black onyx, blue coral, gold platinum and silver titanium.

This device features two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera. Its back camera has a maximum F1.7 aperture so it can take beautiful pictures even in dark environments. It can also shoot videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second.

This phone includes an awesome 5.7-inches display with a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, making everything look amazing.

This cellphone includes WiFi capability (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A ultra fast connectivity and fast 3G connection type, using HSPA technologies. The Note7 comes with two Nano SIM cards so it can to use 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers.

This cellphone comes with a big capacity 3500 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours without having to charge it at all. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts losing capacity, although with so much capacity you will probably replace this phone before that happens.

This phone also includes a wide range of cool features like Fingerprint Sensor, Wireless charger compatibility, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

If you love photography, will use it as a social phone, want this device for work or want this device for playing games, you will probably love this cellphone.
