It’s the Galaxy Note season and waiting for the new arrival sometime soon, seeing the usual discussions and debates about whether the new flagship Note model (Note 7 in this case) is worth the high-end price or not is expected. It’s all about perspective and this will be proved in regards to Galaxy Note 7 review by critics recently and what Samsung has to say.
Opinions are necessary part of life, but in a few cases, a given respective might go too far. In this case, it goes from the statement “the Galaxy Note 7 isn’t the one for me” to “the Galaxy Note 7 isn’t for anyone”, then to “it’s a device not worth the money”, so on and so forth.
A few things shouldn’t be repeated; still critics appear to repeat as if they just don’t get the Note lineup, a wonderful series that has captured the smartphone market since 2011.
Here are the points to prove such critics wrong who say Samsung has got lazy doing innovations and coming up with something new in its devices…of course Note 7 here.
Let’s have an actual overview of Samsung’s performance apart from Galaxy Note 7 review:
- Samsung’s dual camera modules are being purchased by Chinese OEMs, besides its dual-edge curved displays
- Companies like Meizu are buying Samsung’s processors
- Samsung’s LPDDR4 is an industry standard product; you will find Samsung’s LPDDR4 RAM even on its rival LG G5, and Samsung’s own Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
- Samsung front camera sensor on HTC 10, and this is just not the first time when HTC has used Samsung’s front camera sensors
- Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC (in Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge+) and Galaxy Note 5 ruled the market last year in performance and are currently being used in even VR headsets
- This year’s Exynos 8890 SoC is leading the game as Qualcomm confirmed to use Samsung’s low-power 14nm-FinFET process in making Snapdragon 820
- Samsung’s AMOLED panels are being purchased by Android OEMs. Huawei and Google even used AMOLED panel on Nexus 6P last year, and OnePlus used Samsung AMOLED panel in its OnePlus 3 in 2016
And this is yet not to include how the iterative designs in the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are winning critics over.
So doesn’t it seem good to see how a few tweaks and improvements can make something better than ever!
Whether it’s battery life, SoCs, cameras, RAM, display tech, specs, or even hardware that you are talking about; Samsung seems to lead the way around in many areas and improving in the rest.
Samsung’s latest upcoming flagship – Galaxy Note 7, isn’t perfect, but a nice upgrade.
When you see the device for the first time, you better recall that Samsung’s dual-edge curved screen design is going to be the de-facto standard will unsettle the conformity of the existing box-form factor in smartphone design over the next few years. Yes…Samsung’s GPUs are all set to record a new industry standard sometime soon in future.
And coming to the main topic back again – Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review; it’s really all about per-SPEC-tive, with specs placed in the suitable context. Critics must not mix the Note 7 with the S7 and S7 Edge models. Comparing them this way doesn’t makes even a little sense.
When you compare Galaxy Note 7 with Galaxy Note 5, you will find much improvements and new things in there. The micro-USB in Galaxy Note 5 turns into USB-C in the new Galaxy Note 7. The 16MP camera with OIS and VDIS in Galaxy Note 5 also transforms into a 12MP back camera with OIS and Dual phase detection autofocus (PDAF) in the new flagship.
The new model even addresses the dust and water resistance issues.
It just doesn’t ends here!
The 3,000 mAh battery in Note 5 is also improved to a 3,500 mAh battery in Note 7. Even that time when critics claimed the 3,000 mAh Note 5 battery to be worst in battery life when compared to the 3,200 mAh battery in Note 4, Samsung Note 5’s battery proved them wrong.
The only UFS 2.o driven Note 5 now takes turn to UFS and microSD cards working together very well in Note 7. Adoptable storage might also come in the near future to get the best out of this re-integration.
So concluding the revived Galaxy Note 7 review, the device is anything but boring or features-less, but the consistent claims that Samsung isn’t coming up with innovations even when the evidence show otherwise, are!
