With Note 7 which is now making a comeback in Sweden and Europe would make the Samsung cell phone must have the best. The success of most of it.
To choose mobile phone today is not so easy. For those of you who are not familiar with looks and works most phones in much the same way and it can be difficult to distinguish one from the other. Even those who know more and compare features and components may soon come to that processor, working memory and the camera sensor actually are the same even if manufacturer and brand name on the box is different. So what to choose? With their models as a curved screen edges, Samsung has found a clear way to stand out that also in combination with properties better quality feel and water resistance proved successful.
Note-the family with phones dates far back in time (the first came in 2011), and a lot has happened since then. In Note 7, there are many properties that allows it to provide more than many other phones. This is the curved screen edges not the only but of course especially the pen and the features it enables.
Anyone who thinks that the pen is only for when you want to draw or write directly on the screen feel wrong. Instead, I would say that the common annotations and the ability to draw and doodle on the screens is the least tangible. The pen provides mainly extra features in other ways with the translation of the text, and preview and shortcuts in the interface as two examples. With Note so created a new category to the Samsung phones as several of the competitors later imitated, but competitors did so mainly by copying the screen size and not necessarily the most distinguishing feature, which is precisely the properties the pen adds.
Loss of the predecessor
Are you aware of the Note and its predecessors do you know certainly that the former model in the Note series, Galaxy Note 5 never was launched in Sweden or Europe, and that the reason was said to be the S6 Edge Plus better fulfilled the wishes of users in Europe had at that time. However, it is forgotten now Note 7 is launched here and it means a considerable progress, especially if you compare it with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the last Note We got acquainted with us closer in Sweden.
Quality feeling is of course something we perceive directly when we pack up your phone, Yes before we even started up for the first time. The phone we test are shiny silvery, but despite that, it is not particularly susceptible to fingerprints, so it looks fresh and new, even after one week. Note 7 means simply to Note-the family has now taken the step up in the same class as the sister models S7 and S7 Edge and also to some extent taken a further step. This, we are particularly grateful for because it means that the phone itself, as well as the pen is now waterproof and generational jump also means that we do not have the compromises the S6 family stood for. In Note 7 is therefore both the sim and memory card slot while we get extended 64 GB of internal storage memory. It is good especially because relatively few apps can save on memory cards so you even if you have a large memory card still be compelled to put the majority of all apps on the internal memory. Your any memory card is first and foremost a place for photos, movies and music.
Not so bent
Note 7 has several peculiarities already when we look at the hardware and in addition to the pen, there is the curved edges that we recognize from the sister model S7 Edge which was released last spring. Both phones have almost identical exterior dimensions, but Note 7 has a significantly smaller curvature, which ergonomically is an advantage. When I agree with Note 7 it is clear that it is the metal frame on the phone as my fingers move and the risk of inadvertently access the screen edge is less than on S7 Edge. At the same time doing the design on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 becomes less noticeable if it is just the screen curvature as a design element that attracts you.
The deflection at the screen edges are more subtle now, but there is still the special edge-features we previously found even on S7 Edge. It offers a lot of features that probably very few users of S7 Edge detection. For example, we may send small animations on yellow men that FRY pancake, weeping dragons or beloved sloth. But only to those that have the same function on his phone, i.e. those with S6 Edge, S7 Edge or Note 7. For this to work, you add your favorite contacts in a context menu, which means that each of the individuals will be assigned a color. The color then you can see who’s calling even if the phone would be in silent mode and is set on a table with the screen against the table surface. These features must be considered as a right limited in nyttoväg, but there is fortunately more useful features in the Edge menu. Above all, it applies enough ability to start one of the favorite applications without taking a detour past the start screen. You can also add shortcuts to specific tasks in an app. so that with one click you can create a new sms to her partner, set an alarm or take a selfie. Note 7 and the phone in the same family good opportunities for multitasking so that makes this feature especially useful. It does not work for all apps, but for many, you can program the paging mode choose to put the app in half the screen window and let the other half populated by another app that supports this feature. With multiple apps side by side, I can then, for example, drag an image from the photo gallery and dropping in the document I’m writing to avoid complicated import or copy and paste. What can I do with the finger or if I would prefer it with the pen. With the pen, I can also get a thumbnail of an app to easily switch between, for example, an e-mail and a Web site where you download information.To edge-menu you can download additional features beyond those that already exist. There are edge-apps from the DN and Yahoo from the start and you can download such as CNN and shortcuts to your alarm, but the range is limited, even though Edge existed since 2014.
It makes the pen
The pen is central in the Note and has received some new features. First and foremost, a menu pops up as soon as you pull out the pen out of its compartment and a transparent shortcut there is visible as long as the pen is not inserted in the hole where it is kept. Samsung has collected most of the features associated with the pen in the new Samsung app Notes. Where you can enter notes, sketching and painting the more ambitious pictures if you want and can it. in addition to this, you can also use the pen as a magnifying glass on screen and as a translator of any text. Both features are enabled in the transparent context menu and when it’s done, you can keep the stylus across the screen to enlarge the alternative translation. When the phone is first presented, I was on location in London and then was not completely reliable. It could, for example, fail to translate words with åäö in but it is actually a bug has already been corrected Samsung. There are a dozen different languages to choose from, and Swedish are thus one of these. You can not translate whole sentences or phrases, but you come across a word you don’t understand, it is good that this way, take the help of Google translation service.
Will also to S7, S7 Edge
If we look beyond the unique Note-functions, Samsung has also taken the opportunity to freshen up its custom Android-grässnitt. It is generally lighter and more pared down and we can also find a couple of new features. Such is the online storage Samsung Cloud that I actually get the benefit of already during the test. Samsung Cloud means that the phone can save a backup on the sample images in your camera roll to Samsung’s servers as soon as your phone is connected to a wlan. Just to test, I did a system restore, and deleted all the content in your phone. It resulted in me as soon as I logged in again could see the photos I thought were lost.
In addition to the picture gallery can also synchronise bookmarks as well as your notes in the Notes app, Samsung. This means, therefore, that you get backup without having to think about it, which may be gold worth on the day that the phone becomes stolen or lost for other reasons. Today, however, is the possibility to access the content without telephone limited. Apple, whose Icloud one can guess that the Samsung ogled at, offers the possibility to access all stored content via the Web, but it has the Samsung so far only at the planning stage. It will probably in a later update of the service. Today, you must have a Note 7 to view and sync content, but the updated system will also to S7 and S7 Edge at the next Android update.
Update of Samsung’s interface also includes a brand new look with new features in the camera app and improved sleep, which probably is what I personally appreciate most. Sleep mode, call Samsung for Always on Display, and it means that the phone can show the clock in black and white in sleep mode, when the monitor lock is active. In Note7 can sleep mode also display the applications sent notifications without the need to turn off full screen. All of this saves battery since the monochrome screen uses less energy than it would if you each time would ignite the screen completely.
I have mentioned the camera app is updated, but the camera itself is the same as sitting in the S7, S7 Edge. Because they recently won our extensive comparative camera reviews of the top 10 mobile cameras, it is something to be said for Note 7. Camera wise, however, Note 7 equipped with a third dedicated camera. In addition to the selfie the camera above the screen is there also a camera which can identify you by taking picture of your eyes, on the IRIS. Note 7 is first of Samsung phones that use the technology but the iris scanner we have previously seen in, among other things, Microsoft’s latest Lumia-mobiles. This complements the fingerprint reader that also exist.
When I tested the iris scanner will teach it to my eye quickly, but is hardly reliable when I then use technology to try to unlock the screen. Rightly warns the phone itself and advise you to only use the iris scanner that unlock method indoors and not in direct sunlight. I also notice that the backlit function recognition especially bad. I hope that I would be able to get the screen unlocked without really reflect on it comes to shame, and it’s only in about one-third of the trials that the unlock works without problems.
Hard to match
If you’re going to sum up the characteristics of Note 7 it is without a doubt a nice acquaintance. From being the largest mobile phone with the most lavish specifications Note in its latest version, admittedly, but not greater than, for instance, sister model S7 Edge. Quality feel is great and in Note combined both it and a comprehensive range of functions no one really can match.
Questions and answers
It has usb c. What does it mean for all my old accessories that run old usb?
Samsung ships with an adapter so you can connect also the micro-usb, but for example Gear VR, you must buy a new one because the old one will not work with the adapter and Note 7. It will not fit in the old model but requires the Gear VR with usb-c which was launched at the same time as Note 7.
Why do I need a pen?
It is perfectly possible to use Note 7 without ever taking out pen. It does, however, that you can draw and highlight on the screen images, translate single words and use it as a virtual magnifying glass on your screen, to name some.
Is it a prestandamonster?
It has the same processor, screen size and amount of RAM as the sister model S7 Edge from last spring, so in that sense, there is no exceptional force in it compared to the competition. When we use is the anyway fast even with multitasking and multiple apps running.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has much in common with Note 7. If you don’t have such a big advantage of the pen can S7 Edge even though it is not cheap to be a cheaper alternative than Note 7.
The camera is the same as that in S7, S7 Edge and stands out with good colors, fast autofocus and excellent performance in the dark.
