Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

An excellent phone with a fatal flaw

Elegant, water-resistant design ; Top notch camera ; New S Pen functionality

Prone to overheat ; Extremely expensive ; Touchy capacitive buttons

The Galaxy Note 7 took Samsung's best phone to date, the S7 Edge, stretched it to a 5.7-inch curved display and added an S Pen stylus. It has the same top-of-the-line camera and specs, but was meant for big hands with equally big wallets....

Galaxy Note 7 review: awesome style and power to get things done

 

The Galaxy S7 might be the world's top phone, but its big sister turns it up to 11

A total powerhouse ; Superb screen ; YES USB-C

Highly droppable ; Fingerprint magnet ; Early for iris tech

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review: Take note, this is the big-screen phone to beat

 

The Samsung Note family is characterised by one thing: the inclusion of a stylus (that's S Pen in Samsung speak). That the Note 7 is a remarkable phone won't come as a surprise to fans of the series. Time and again, this larger format device has found...

Display and HDR potential, design and build quality, software refinement, great camera, S Pen feels natural and adds plenty of useful features that define the phone

Sound quality from those speakers, price point is obviously prohibitive for many, iris scanner of little use given how good the fingerprint scanner is

That the Note 7 is a remarkable phone won't come as a surprise to fans of the series. Time and again, this larger format device has found fame for all the right reasons. For 2016 the Note 7 no longer feels like the freakishly large phone the series...

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 was a monstrous smartphone, but is no more

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

A phone with a fatal flaw - the Note 7 could have been great, but it's now no more and we don't recommend you buy it

The Galaxy Note 7 has been recalled and we don't recommend you buy it - which is a shame, because it could have been a great phone

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

 

Big phones weren't big until the original Samsung Galaxy Note came along. Its radical resizing of the smartphone was bonkers to some, but a revelation to others.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

The dream is over - Samsung's officially pulled the Note 7 from sale and production

Looks great ; S Pen is better than ever ; Superb camera

It’s gonna cost you ; Battery life isn't class-leading

A big phone that doesn't feel like one and a powerhouse that doesn't look like one, the Note 7 is a deceptively brilliant beast

Packed with cool features ; Super-accurate S Pen ; S7's camera tech

Battery life could be better ; Pricey

The Note 7 is an ideal companion for on-the-move artists and business users, thanks to the brilliant S Pen, enhanced security and some solid, dependable performance. It’s also a great way to kick back and relax with a gorgeous screen that was made for...
