The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 amid battery explosion controversy and the global recall has left a bad taste in the buyers mouth. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is an amazing phone (minus the fact that it might blow up) and till date has been rated as the best Android smartphone only to succeed the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will make it’s comeback once the company has managed to fix this problem, till then we decided to unbox the stealthy all black Galaxy Note 7 Duos (dual sim variant). The dual-SIM phone is not the variant that will launch in markets like India, however, the specifications and features remain identical (apart from the dual-SIM option).
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes in a packaging just like the S7 and S7 Edge, all black outer cover with bold blue lettering. Inside the box you will get
- The Samsung Galaxy Note 7
- S Pen
- USB Type C Cable
- Fast Adaptive USB Wall charger
- Additional S Pen Tips
- S Pen Tool
- microUSB – USB Type C Adapter
- User Manual
- SIM Removal Tool
- Earphones + Additional Ear Tips + Earphone Case
The Black Onyx colour we unboxed has a matter metal frame and all back rear and front, extremely stealthy to look at. The front and back both are fingerprint magnets and you will constantly find yourself wiping the phone. that okay because both the front and back come with Gorilla Glass 5 and will offer up a good amount of protection for the Galaxy Note 7.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a pretty quick initial setup and the iris scanner is unbelievably easy to setup and really practical to use. It is fast and efficient and unlocks the phone in mere seconds.
The cameras on the Note 7 are identical to the S7 and S7 edge, although seem to focus faster and more effectively. The rear camera captures 4k video at 30fps and Slow mo 720p video at 240fps.
The Galaxy Note 7 is iP68 rated and we took it for a test run in the sink.
