Detailed Look

 

The new Galaxy Note 7 is one of the best-looking smartphones on the market, and it screams premium all the way down to the S Pen, and again up to the dual curved display which always has me turning my head. Samsung has been known, in the past, to release 'plastic-y' smartphones which don't get referred to as quality. This has all changed with the last few Galaxy smartphones, and the Galaxy Note 7 - to me at least, hits a new high note.

Looking at the front of the Galaxy Note 7, we can see a bunch of sensors at the top, as well as the front-facing camera. The iris scanner is there, which will let you unlock your Note 7 by just looking at it.

On the back of the phone, we have the great 12-megapixel rear-facing 4K-capable camera which is joined by the LED flash and heart rate sensor.

Samsung has opted for the new USB Type-C connector for charging and syncing, which is reversible - and it's awesome. There's also a 3.5mm jack to the left, microphone, speaker, and then to the right is the S Pen stylus.

At the top of the Galaxy Note 7, we have the SIM/microSD card tray.
