Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has one of the best designs I have ever seen in a flagship device. It comes with very premium design. It has glass and metal design. On back it has Corning gorilla glass 5 which protect it and as well as give it a very shinny back which looks really premium. On sides it has curved edges just like Samsung s7 edge, which give it a grip and also looks nice. On top it has SIM tray and secondary noise cancellation. On bottom it has USB type- C port, microphone, and loudspeaker. The S pen is also at bottom which is main feature of this phone. On left it has volume rockers and on right it has power on/off buttons. Overall we can say Samsung has done a very good work on the design. Samsung has done a very good job on the design. Design is so premium that it even looks better than iPhone 6s.


Just as always Samsung AMOLED's display are best in world and even this time Samsung has provided it's best display in Note 7. The display is a quad HD AMOLED dispaly. The resolution of display is 1440*2560 pixel. The brightness levels are really good. The colours are very good. Sunlight visibility is also very good even better than any other flagship. Movies and any other videos are very enjoyable on the device, due to such vibrant display. Overall we can say Samsung has done a great job on making it's display as always.

                        BATTERY LIFE

Samsung galaxy note 7 comes with non removable Li ion 3500 mah battery. The battery life is good on this device. We can get screen on time of about 4-5 hours on this. If we charge it fully in morning, it will end up for a full working day with about 20% of battery life. But this battery life is for Exynos version but I have heard that snapdragon version has slightly less battery life. We can say that battery life on Samsung note 7 is decent.

                      FAST CHARGING

Samsung galaxy note 7 comes with a fast charger. It supports fast charging. It also supports wireless charging. But it takes about 90 odd minutes for full charge.


Samsung galaxy note 7 comes in two variants one comes with snapdragon 820 and other comes with Exynos 8890. I am telling here about the Exynos version. The processing is really decent on this device. It can easily handle the day to day tasks. Gaming us also very good on this device. It can easily play the heavy games such as asphalt 8, Nova 3, dead trigger 2 etc. Even temperatures are under control during heavy games. But there are many animations lag during day to day tasks. But they can be fixed by decreasing the animations scale in developer mode.

                   RAM MANAGEMENT

Ram management is decent on this device. But Samsung can make it better because it has 4GB of ram and it doesn't have the same ram management as compared to other devices having same ram.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is totally water and dust resistant. So we shouldn't care about water spills. We can also use this smartphone under water.


The biggest cone of this device is that it is prone to scratches. Samsung has used gorilla glass 5 protection at the back to improve the grip as gorilla glass 4 which was used in samsung galaxy s7 makes the s7 very slippery. Grip has improved on galaxy note 7 but now it's back is prone to scratches. Even if you take very much care of your device you will definitely see scratches at the back. So Samsung should have cared about this before choosing the protection.


Samsung galaxy note 7 has a single loudspeaker at the bottom. Loudspeaker is adequately loud. We can enjoy music on this device very well.


Primary: Samsung galaxy note 7 has a 12MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture. It has phase detection autofocus, Optical image stabilisation and LED flash. The pictures captured with the primary camera are very good. The colours are vibrant. In good light conditions the pics captured are really good with lot of detail and good colour reproduction. Colours come really accurate. In low lightening conditions the camera performs same, there is less noise and the colours are good and pictures are very bright. Samsung has done a really great job in its camera department. Simply we can say it has one of the best cameras in the flagship ones. But there is a minor cone in it's primary camera the videos are a little bit shaky. Other than this the camera is best in class.

Secondary: The secondary camera performs equally well as the primary camera. The pics are good, have good colour reproduction, bright and has a lot of detail, in natural artificial as well as low light conditions. Noise levels are really low as compared to the other cameras in the same class, in low and artificial lightening conditions.


The new feature which comes in samsung galaxy note 7 is IRIS scanner. The IRIS scanner is accurate and unlocks the phone fast. Most of the time it recognises the person accurately and unlocks phone. To add this IR scanner Samsung has an infrared camera at front.
          Instead of this IRIS scanner it also has fingerprint scanner which is also fast. It unlocks the phone fast but it is not as fast as iPhone 6s.

                     FINAL VERDICT

Samsung has developed it's best phone ever which is galaxy note 7. This phone is more more or less like Samsung s7 edge instead of some additional features such as good grip, IRIS scanner, S pen functionality and better display. If you are upgrading from Samsung galaxy note 5 or some other flagship device you can upgrade but if you wanna upgrade from s7 edge it is not a good option. So you should wait for iPhone 7 or some other next series flagships.

Best camera in class (same as s7 edge)
Better grip
IRIS scanner
Dust and water resistant

Could have better ram management
Easily prone to scratches
Shaky video recording
