Samsung Galaxy Note7 review: Thinking Big

16 August 2016
All great speeches start with carefully prepared notes. For yet another year Samsung has taken the role of a modern-day orator, pushing for a return to personal handwriting against the trend of detached digital text.

A phone that thinks big. Explodes even bigger!

Note 7 is dead already. Very high chance, Samsung may not sell a lot of Note 7.
Rumors suggest Samsung will launch Note 8 early 2018.

I say the Note 7 is terrible the camera is only 8mp really its lying saying its 12mp there isnt a lock button on the side its on the top so my hand isnt big enough to lock it with one hand and theres also a weird noise whenever someone phones me its like a "ring ring" noise and it only goes off when i answer the phone!!! It must be broken and when i put it in water it sinks it dosen't even float!!!!!

kamil, 24 Aug 2016why samsung not produce note 6?why???B'coz Samsung team time travelled in the future and found that Note 6 version would get faulty battery and could explode so they made version Note 7 but déjà vu didn't work and the rest is history...

"Don't fret it" in the performance section... curious choice of words, after the Verge/XDA drama about Note7 performance, when the same word was used about performance to dismiss the XDA review

can anybody who have a note 7 tell me if he can hear this static noise please?

Hello GSM Arena Team, I was going through your review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. In the user interface page you have mentioned that there is a way to disable the app drawer in the note 7. I have been using the device but do not see the option to disable the app drawer. Can you help ?

  • AnonD-488678

What are you gonna do with this phone that the previous phone can't? Writting a note in the water? Really..?

Are Whatsapp/Instagram/FB/Snapchat/Line/Telegram/Viber will be shown as an 'Ultra HD 16K' in this phone?

Or is it just about lifestyle needs?

Does the Exynos version use a Wolfson dac like older phones did?

  • Crag

Does the speaker sound better on the Exynos version?
