The Galaxy Note 7 is here. It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it’s bloody expensive.
We’ve already spent some time with it for our hands-on review, and some of us think it could be the best phone in the world. Whatever side of the fence you lie on, there’s no denying it’s making waves.
Having spent a bit more time with it at Samsung’s launch event, we’ve come up with a list of things we love and dislike about Samsung’s latest superphone.
Things we love…
1) It’s got an amazing screen
The Galaxy S7 Edge’s screen is superb. Its 2K resolution and AMOLED panel result in a super-sharp display with punchy colours and deep blacks, while its curved edges give it a certain je ne sais quois.
The Note 7 takes this incredible screen, and bumps it up to 5.7 glorious inches of viewable real estate, making it ideal for movies, gaming, and browsing. What’s not to love?
2) It’s got a really clever stick
Well, a stylus. Well, an S Pen, if you want to get really specific. This little wand is what sets the Note 7 apart from every other flagship smartphone in the universe, letting you draw, doodle and scribble notes in an instant.
Apart from the fact that it’s more accurate than ever, it’ll let you translate words on websites (or even from photos), create GIFs from YouTube, and it’ll even work underwater. Speaking of which....
