Galaxy Note7 initial impressions

Finally the wait is over! Samsung announced the launch of its much awaited smartphone of the Note series, The Galaxy Note7. This phone has everything that the Galaxy S7 edge had with some amazing new things like the iris scanner, a microSD card slot and the famous S-pen which is now more intelligent, more pressure sensitive, and also water resistant. So let’s talk about the design of the phone first, The Note7 has a curved design on both back and front which seamlessly blends aesthetics and superior build in the phone. Now, even though this phone has 5.7” display, it offers a comfortable grip and easier one-handed operation. Samsung also kept in mind the durability of the phone and that’s why the Note7 comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and it is the first phone to have so.


Now let’s come to the specifications of the phone,

Also, the S-PEN has been enhanced making is capable of getting extraordinary things done efficiently and accurately. the new Air command Translate function enables users to quickly translate any on-screen text with ease. With smart select, creating and sharing of GIF animation is a breeze for any user.

Overall we found the Note7 to be a perfect phone as now it also comes with a USB Type-C port which was missing in the previous note phone. There actually no flaw in this phone but then again we can’t say much till we get the phone for a full review.
