The most anticipated smartphone of 2016, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is officially available at retailers and carriers across the US, (AT & T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Verizon, BestBuy, Amazon, and more). This Samsung’s newest flagship phone is designed with unique and top notch features and even tops the impressive Samsung Galaxy 7. In this article, we take a closer look at everything you need to know about Samsung Galaxy Note 7.




Key Features

1. Elegant Design


Galaxy Note 7 is perfectly designed from every angle. Metal on the back and glass on the front bend in unison to create a seamless, flush surface all around. The dual-curved screen meets the curved back enabling you to do more in a better and faster way. You’ll be able to pick Galaxy Note 7 from a flat surface with ease, and hold it comfortably in your hand while using the S Pen, thanks to its rounded back. On the front, the brilliant screen bends at the edges of both sides, offering the maximum space for the S Pen.


2. Powerful S-Pen

Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s S Pen is designed to write like a real pen, allowing you to take notes and sketch out your ideas naturally and effortlessly. Every memo, note and image selected and annotated with this S Pen are saved in one place (The Samsung Notes App). It’s also where you’ll also find the S Pen files transferred from your old phone with the help of the SmartSwitch app.

The smooth and precise S Pen is water and dust resistant, meaning that you can use it without worrying about it getting wet. With the ability to mix colors and access to more brushes, the S Pen can be used to paint, draw and share files directly to PEN.UP. A simple press of the S Pen’s side button turns it into an eraser. Moreover, you can use the S Pen to jot down notes without having to unlock your screen.


3. Industry Leading Camera


The camera performs excellently in all lighting conditions. The 12MP Dual Pixel Sensor coordinates with the brighter F1.7 lens and the larger 1.4um pixels captures images just in the same way your eyes do. You can change the settings in Pro mode where you’ll access the ISO, Shutter Speed, Exposure, Color tones, White Balance, Focal length and more. You’ll adjust these settings based on your preference.



4. Entertainment

While watching videos or playing games with Samsung Galaxy Note, you’ll feel like you are no longer at your desk or on the train since you’ll have access to the most visually intense Vulkan API games and the most realistic HDR videos. Once you start watching or playing, you’ll forget that you are just using a smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Note is indeed the ultimate entertainment device.


5. Security

Iris scanning and Knox Samsung security solution are the main safety features used on Galaxy Note 7. The “Secure Folder” stores documents, videos, photos and apps that you would like to keep private and the Knox system helps provide the security. You can use your fingerprint, pattern, PIN or password to access these files.

Samsung Galaxy Note can be unlocked with your iris, pattern or fingerprint. Iris scan also secures your online transactions. If your smartphone is lost, misplaced or stolen, you can use “Find My Phone” to locate it and even erase your data remotely. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also supports Samsung Pay, the simplest and secure way to make payments.
