• Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review: Hands on with the Waterproof Galaxy Note 7
    Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Underwater Waterproof
    August, 8th,2016

    Swim in the water for fear of being photographed? Now you have to anti Samsung Galaxy Note7, because of its waterproof function for people take pictures in the water when you swimming. At Samsung Galaxy Note7 released soon, Samsung's official website @ small communities struggle posted a Samsung Galaxy Note7 underwater video, and demonstrates Spen control, underwater video and photographs, how kind of effect we first look at the video of it.

    In fact, as early as the waterproof function has been Samsung Samsung S7 and S7 edge taste, and can be maintained in the absence of mobile water depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, apparently Samsung Galaxy Note7 follows function, but have more openings to have Samsung Galaxy Note7 this performance is surprising, from the video experience, the Samsung Galaxy Note7 the S Pen can be used flexibly in still water, mobile Internet, take pictures with the normal state is no different.

    It measures 153.5x73.9x7.9mm and weighs just 169g. That makes it smaller overall than the iPhone 6S Plus (the Note is a little thicker), and not much bigger than the Galaxy S7 Edge. Given that this phone as a 5.7in display, that's pretty good going. Samsung's also releasing the phone in three colours: Black Onyx, Blue Coral and Silver Titanium. I'm a fan of the Blue Coral as its subtle shade of blue really stands out compared to its white and black siblings.

    IP68 dust and water protection
    As with the Galaxy S7 range, the Note 7 has an IP68 rating, which means that it's both dustproof and waterproof up to 1.5m in fresh water for up to 30 minutes. In other words, if you drop it down the loo or get caught in a rain shower, your phone won't break. If you spill a pint over it or something other than clean water, however, you might not be so lucky.

    S Pen
    Of course, the standout feature of the Note range has always been the stylus, and the Note 7 gets a brand new S Pen, which Samsung says is easier to use and feels more natural. The truth? Absolutely spot on. Thanks to the 0.7mm tip on the Note 7's new S Pen, you get incredible accuracy. The S Pen also feels quite soft when writing, making it feel more like writing on paper than a hard display. I'd certainly have no problems using this as my notebook of choice.

    Diving into the S Pen's features is easy, too, as there's an ever-present shortcut icon that remains onscreen whenever you take the pen out of the phone. These utilities give the S Pen a few neat tricks. First, Google Translate is built in, so you can convert words on the fly just by hovering the pen over them. It will even work using a photo, so you can take a picture of a menu, for example, and translate as you go.

    You can use the animated GIF function to turn an online video into a short clip that you can share with your friends. There's also a magnify option - just hover the pen over the screen and you'll get a zoomed-in view. With the S Pen slotting neatly out of the way into the bottom of the phone, you'll find it hard to lose it.

    Security - fingerprint and iris scanners

    We’ve all seen fingerprint scanners before, but the Note 7 is the first handset to have a built-in iris scanner, which can unlock your phone just by scanning your eyes. The registration process takes around 30s, after which the phone unlocks in just a couple of seconds when you hold it up to your face. It’s clever to see and is an additional form of security that banks and other financial institutions may be interested in, but it’s not going to be for everyone, as it warns that contact lenses and glasses can cause problems with the scanner.

    Samsung's Super AMOLED technology is about the best you can get on a smartphone these days and the Note 7 has yet another brilliant screen. The resolution of 2,560x1,440 gives you a screen density of 518ppi, and while not quite as high as the S7 and S7 Edge, everything still looks absolutely pin sharp on its 5.7in display. I haven't been able to run our usual barrage of tests on this screen yet, but I'd be surprised if it didn't get near-perfect scores.

    Samsung has fitted the Note 7 with the same dual-pixel 12-megapixel sensor it used in the Galaxy S7. I couldn't take any sample shots in my time with the phone, but the S7's camera is one of the best in the business and I'd expect the Note 7 to produce equally good results.

    Battery life
    Samsung didn't quote any battery life figures for the Note 7, but the new phone has a huge 3,500mAh battery. That's just shy of the 3,600mAh battery used in the Galaxy S7 Edge, but bigger than the 3,000mAh battery in the S7. Given that the Note 7 has a bigger screen, it seems reasonable to expect that the new phone will last somewhere between the S7's 17h 48m and the S7 Edge's 18h 42m in our video playback test.

    Fast charging via the USB-C port on the rear should also means that you'll be able to get to around 50% charge in 10 minutes just like the S7, but Samsung hasn't released any official details or time scales at time of writing.

    As for performance, the Note 7 has 4GB of RAM and an octa-core 2.3GHz Exynos 8890 SoC in the UK version - other territories get a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. This is the same chip used in the Galaxy S7 range, so I'm expecting the Note 7 to be as blisteringly fast as those handsets.

    Rejoice, as Samsung has fully returned to upgradeable storage this year, with a microSD card slot letting you cheaply upgrade storage from the 64GB that's built-in to the handset.

    If you've been missing the Note range, you're going to be extremely happy with the Note 7: it's gorgeous, it's fast, it's got a better S Pen and it's waterproof. Following on the from the quality of the S7, it looks clear that this handset is going to be another winner for Samsung.
