The new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one of the best smartphones ever made, and definitely one you should consider when it goes on sale August 19 for $850.
The phone is packed with loads of great features, but there are six that stand out above the rest.
Here’s what makes the Galaxy Note 7 such an enticing phone.
The Note 7 can survive under a few feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Even the S Pen stylus will work under water. That doesn’t mean you should go swimming or bathing with your new phone, but you won’t have to worry about dropping it in a puddle or the toilet.
The Note 7 can charge wirelessly with any standard charging pad. But if you buy Samsung’s charging pad, you can enable fast charging, which tops up your battery a lot faster than normal. (Fast charging also works if you use the wired plug included with the phone.)
The best camera
The Galaxy Note 7 has the same amazing camera first introduced this spring in the Galaxy S7. It’s still the best camera available in a smartphone.
A gorgeous curved screen
Samsung’s curved screens have become a staple on the company’s flagship phones, and the one on the Note 7 is the best yet. It has a tighter curve, which gives the impression that the display doesn’t have bezels around it. The curved screen also makes the Note 7 much more comfortable to hold.
The best smartphone design ever
The curved screen is only one part of the overall amazing design on the Note 7. The phone is built from two symmetrical pieces of glass, and has a smaller footprint than the iPhone 6s Plus even with its larger screen. Simply put, this is the best-looking smartphone ever built.
The Note 7 comes with 64 GB of storage built in, but you can add up to another 256 GB with a MicroSD card. And here’s a sweet deal: Samsung will give you a free 256 GB card when you buy the Note 7 for a limited time.
No other premium phone gives you that much storage for this price.
