The Note 7 is an old phone, and was released in 2016. It still looks good, though. We’re fans of its appearance, as it’s made from glass and aluminum. The glass is Gorilla Glass 5, so the mobile can handle a beating.
Its dimensions are 153.5 mm x 73.9 mm x 7.9 mm – it’s paper-like.
It’s got some weight at 169 grams which makes it feel more premium.
Unlike current Samsung flagships, you’re getting a microSD slot. The Note 7 comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack as well.
Holding it for a while might hurt your hands. Take a look at its sides – they’re square.
You can pick it up in many colours. The Silver Titanium is our favourite. The other choices available are Blue Coral, Gold Platinum and Black Onyx.
Let’s talk about its display. A Super AMOLED panel is in-place, so the colours would be very vibrant. You’ll have a great viewing experience as its screen is 5.7 inches.
The mobile is HDR10 rated – you’ll be able to stream HDR content.
Who doesn’t love a sharp resolution? The former flagship rocks a 1440 x 2560 pixel front.
You don’t have to worry about dropping it. Just like its rear, there is Gorilla Glass 5 on its display.
There’s barely any bezel action going on. It has a 78% screen-to-body ratio. It’s good but not excellent. More expensive handsets these days come with ratios of 90%.
Out of the box, it runs Android 6.1. Considering how it’s a discontinued phone, it’s no surprise that it didn’t receive the Android 10 update.
It was discontinued as its batteries were fire hazards. Samsung immediately recalled the devices. You can still buy it if you look around.
The Note 7’s battery is a 3500 mAh non removable unit. Expect the former flagship to last around a day.
You’ll be using a 15 W fast charger, which would have to be placed inside its USB-C port.
It comes with quick charge. It isn’t very quick by today’s standards, though. It fully charges in 2 hours.
If you’re expecting reverse charging, get ready to be disappointed.
Did we mention how powerful its processor is? It houses the Exynos 8890 chip which will handle whatever you throw at it. The fact that the Galaxy device comes with superb RAM makes moving through its systems even easier. You’ll be purchasing it with 4 GB of memory.
Something that’s as snappy as its processor is its fingerprint sensor which is front mounted. The cherry on top is its quick face-unlock.
ROM-wise, it’s quite good. It comes with 64 GB of storage. If you remember, expanding its ROM is possible.
Samsung flagships are known for their powerful cameras. The Note 7 is no exception. It houses a 12 MP wide sensor on its rear. Shots will be vibrant and colour accurate. The mobile takes excellent photographs in low-light too.
On its rear set-up, there is a bright LED flash. Unfortunately, you’re not getting one on its front camera.
What is its selfie camera like? It consists of dual sensors. The primary lens is a 5 MP wide lens, while its secondary camera is 2 MP. It has an iris scanner.
As the handset was discontinued, you can’t find it easily. But the device costs around Rs.44,000.
