Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

Big without feeling too big and powerful without looking boring, the Note 7 is an all-round winner

Looks great ; S Pen is better than ever ; Superb camera

It’s gonna cost you ; Battery life isn't class-leading

A big phone that doesn't feel like one and a powerhouse that doesn't look like one, the Note 7 is a deceptively brilliant beast

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 was the best phablet you could buy, until it was recalled.

The Galaxy Note 7 was the best smartphone Samsung made in 2016. It was beautiful as the S7 Edge, but it was as functional as every other Note before it. The Note series is one of our personal favorites, and we were glad that Samsung was folding the...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

 

Big phones weren't big until the original Samsung Galaxy Note came along. Its radical resizing of the smartphone was bonkers to some, but a revelation to others.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

Between its first-rate screen, powerful performance and an improved S Pen, the Galaxy Note 7 was perhaps the best Android phones money could buy when it launched. However, after repeated reports of exploding batteries Samsung issued a recall. Even...

When I reviewed the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge earlier this year, I was already convinced Samsung was operating at the top of its game. After using phones as well crafted as those, I didn't think it would be possible to love the inevitable follow-up as...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review

 

A phone with a fatal flaw - the Note 7 could have been great, but it's now no more and we don't recommend you buy it

The Galaxy Note 7 has been recalled and we don't recommend you buy it - which is a shame, because it could have been a great phone

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been recalled and is no longer sold. No one should use this phone.

Top-of-the-line performance. Fantastic display. Improved S Pen design and functionality. Reasonably easy to handle for the size. Highly attractive, distinctive edge design.

Faulty batteries in some models. Expensive. Carrier bloatware.

Conclusions The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is undoubtedly one of the best phablets available, but at $850, it's also the priciest. That's not to say it isn't worth it; you get a powerful processor, one of the best displays available, a surprisingly svelte...
