The new Samsung Galaxy Note7 adapts the successful cornerstones of smartphone previous version and now comes also with a Dual Edge display on the market. The display is no longer flat but rounded. As the Note series of Samsung has developed in recent years, is particularly evident in the following figure:

Note Series Overview

As known from the Leaks: Samsung sets the Note7 to an aluminum alloy of the Series 8, a particularly stable form, which in symbiosis with the display ( protected by Gorilla Glass 5 ) to be particularly robust. Connected has this with the IP68 certification already known from previous versions. You should ensure that the Samsung Galaxy Note7 survived for at least 30 minutes in 1.5 meter deep water without damage – dustproof, it is further also.


When it comes to camera optics has refinished, these projects not as strong out of the back, instead, one could minimize this protrusion to less than 1 mm, so that the unit rests fastplan.


In terms of hardware Samsung uses an old acquaintance, the Exynos 8890 processor. The users are familiar with already from the Samsung Galaxy S7, or the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. This processor has already proven in the past that he is very powerful. The memory equipment is also no surprise if one has followed the leaks.


Samsung uses 4 GB of RAM, which many might find disturbing, that are of the opinion that manufacturers like OnePlus one must take your word; that 6 GB of memory in a flagship must be.


Interestingly, the battery on the Samsung Galaxy Note7. Samsung uses a 3,500 mAh strength, which is below the value of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Here you have to look at how the whole thing will mean in reality, how long the device so persevere. I maintain, however, that one should get through the day in normal use with the Note7. One difference with the predecessor is also the connection, here is no longer set to microUSB instead comes like most flagships the recent past USB C for use. Herewith the wiring is simple


Here I must again investigate how it is ordered with the speed. Some manufacturers namely USB-C as a nice connection, however, this has not in things more manageable speed any benefits. Insofar as what is known, I lay by an update here.


Another new feature is the iris scanner, which is used to unlock the Samsung Galaxy Note7. Samsung has it installed an infrared scanner and an additional camera in the device. Samsung speaks in his presentation of a security, which should be “200 times higher” than that of a fingerprint. Here I am looking forward to the experiments of techies and scientists to bypass the whole. Could one still “relatively easy” reconstruct a fingerprint, or a finger, this is at the Iris certainly different.


There is of course again several things to consider. When setting up the user learns that eyeglasses, contact lenses and poor light can cause problems. Wearer of eyeglasses or contact lenses should set up the function without visual aids, after unlocking will then be no problem.


A disadvantage of the function the following could be: The iris should be scanned from a distance of 25 to 35 cm, further you have to wipe the screen to come at all in the mode of unlocking via Iris. Good: Of course you can use the fingerprint scanner parallel, in this case the touted increased security of iris scans is of course an absurdity.

While in terms of display no superlatives achieved (no 4K or so, which I personally do not miss, because should absolutely sufficient even delivered pixel density), you have the software again rebuilt, with the known stands or falls much. Thus, the always-on display can indeed still no WhatsApp show notifications, but rather (pull S-Pen from the Note7 with display off and just write) notes directly StickWindow.


The S-Pen has gained new functions in cooperation with the software, it is pulled or pushed his button, so the display shows the Samsung Galaxy Note7 again usable applications that Samsung has but transformed into the new Grace UX. Memo, Action Memo and S Note were summarized in the Samsung Notes under a hood, so that the user can quickly access all aspects. Improvements were also the sharing of screen contents, here is now possible to automatically split GIF files create, which may be up to 15 seconds.


Furthermore, one finds old acquaintances, as the oversight of screen screenshots with notes. Screen content can be converted to a window using the Glance feature, this can be minimized so that they can act in the system until you open the Glance window again.
