Samsung Galaxy Note 7 review: The sexiest large-screen phone ever

 

The 5.7-inch, stylus-slinging Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a damn fine phone. Its sexy wraparound glass, precise S Pen and brilliant screen would impress anyone, but it's ideal for artists, architects and people who would rather write with their own hand...

The Galaxy Note 7 is a beautiful, capable Android phone that showcases Samsung's best in design, battery life, speed and features. The 64GB base model leaves you plenty of space for photos, videos and games, and it's a real improvement over 2015's Note 5

It's pricier than almost every other Android phone, and a little heavy. After seven iterations, there are still minor problems writing with the S Pen stylus. Fine particles, like beach sand, can wedge the stylus in its holder

The Galaxy Note 7 is the best no-compromise, big-screen phone you can buy if price is no object. All but the most devoted stylus lovers, however, will do just as well with the cheaper S7 models.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7: the verdict

 

UPDATE: The Samsung Galaxy Note 7's recall means that it's no longer an option for those looking for a large-screen phone. Those looking for an alternative could consider the iPhone 7 Plus or, for those who prefer the Android platform, the Samsung...

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a brilliant smartphone that you wouldn’t expect to come cheap – and, at $1,349 outright, it doesn’t.
