Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with Gorilla Glass 5 Ultimate Scratch and Hammer Test – [Videos]

A few days back we saw the Galaxy Note 7 undergo a series of rigorous drop tests, today we take a closer look at how Samsung’s new beast of a device manages to survive these scratch tests. Be warned, this video might not be for the faint hearted so do watch it at your own risk. After looking at the video, we were quite amazed by the end result which clearly proves that even though Gorilla Glass 5 is somewhat durable against drops but when it comes to being scratched, the device is quite vulnerable to scratches. For those of you who are planning to buy this otherwise amazing device, we recommend using a good quality screen protector along with a durable back cover to keep your device protected at all times. Also check out the video below to see how the Note 7 fares when kept under a knife and...

How well does the Galaxy Note 7 survive these drop tests – [Video]

How well does the Galaxy Note 7 survive these drop tests – [Video]

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one of the first devices that come with the all new Gorilla Glass 5 which the company claims to be four times more durable than its predecessor and the current competition. According to recent lab tests, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 survives up to 80 percent of the time when dropped face-down from 1.6 meters onto rough surfaces, far outperforming competitive glass designs. Well that claim has been put to test by our friends at XEETECHCARE who did a drop test with a brand new Galaxy Note 7. After conducting several drop tests from different heights, the front glass managed to survive every drop but much to our surprise, the glass at the back of the device got cracked in just the first drop which does raise a few eyebrows considering the fact Samsung have used the exact same glass on both sides. This proves that no matter how strong and durable the companies claim their phone display’s to be, at the end of the day one thing does stand out….Glass does Shatter!! For those of you who are planning to purchase this otherwise amazing device are advised to purchase a good quality back cover as well as a screen protector to save your device from any unfortunate mishaps as far as cracking or damaging your phone is concerned. The Galaxy Note 7 is set to arrive worldwide starting August...

Samsung officially announce the Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage only for China

Samsung officially announce the Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage only for China

There is absolutely no doubt in the fact that the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note7 is by far the best looking Android smartphone of 2016. Even though the phone offers some really amazing features including an Iris scanner, some people were left disappointed at the fact that the device did not come with 6GB RAM as it was being anticipated since quite some time. Well, we can officially confirm today that Samsung are indeed going to launch a 6GB variant of their flagship device that will come with 128GB of on-board storage. Unfortunately, the device would only be available in China as the company wants to enter into competition with some of the other Chinese brands that are offering devices with similar hardware. This has upset local consumers because the Galaxy Note7 is launched with 64GB built-in memory and 4GB RAM in the global markets including South Korea. Here’s what Mr. Koh Dong-jin, the head of the tech giant’s mobile business had to say at a launch event for the Galaxy Note 7 in Seoul; “It is true that we are reviewing the rollout of a new tablet with 128 gigabyte built-in memory in China because Chinese companies are aggressively doing marketing with high-capacity memory,”  “We will accept diverse opinions from various regions and also consider whether that move will disappoint Korean consumers,” he added. Pricing and availability is yet to be ascertained for the upgraded variant but considering the $850 price tag on the 64GB version, we do expect this one to be somewhere close to the $1000 mark. Will keep you guys posted on any further...

Introducing the Galaxy Note7 – The smartphone that thinks big

Introducing the Galaxy Note7 – The smartphone that thinks big

Samsung is known for its innovation and that is exactly what users expect to get each year especially in the company’s GALAXY S and GALAXY Note series devices. This year we saw the GALAXY S7 Edge take the world by storm with its powerful features especially the camera which is by far the best smartphone camera we have used till now. Now the one question on everyone’s mind was exactly how Samsung are going to top their most prized device of 2016? Well, the company answered that question with the launch of the all new GALAXY Note 7 at a grand event in New York on August 2nd. Following in the footsteps of its successful predecessor, the Note 5, Samsung decided not to name their new Note the Note 6 instead giving it the same number as its younger sibling the S7. According to Samsung, they wanted to streamline their flagship GALAXY series into one so now when you come to think of it, that does make sense. Now moving onto the phone itself, the Note 7 comes with a bunch of new features including the much awaited Iris scanner giving the device an extra layer of security along with the very fast and intuitive finger print scanner. Other features include the addition of the (greatly missed) microSD card slot and IP68 certification making it the first Note device to be water resistant. The Note 7 comes with a 5.7-inch Dual-edge Super AMOLED 2560 x 1440 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and 518ppi, an improved version of the S Pen and runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Under the hood lies a Quad-core 64-bit (2.15GHz Dual + 1.6GHz Dual) Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or Octa-core Samsung Exynos 8890 processor (varying on different regions), 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, a Dual Pixel 12MP rear camera with OIS, f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP front camera with f/1.7 aperture, a 3550 mAh battery and is the first Samsung device to support USB Type-C connectivity. As far as storage is concerned, the Note 7 only comes with 64GB of on board storage with microSD card support up to 256GB. The Note 7 comes in four radiant colors: Black Onyx, Blue Coral, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium and would be available on August 19 with pre-orders already underway. The devices are priced at around US$850 in the US, around £600 in the UK, and around A$1,200 in Australia. For those of you who are still using a Note 4 or an even older model, the Note 7 would be a wonderful upgrade. With a powerful camera, Iris Scanner and a host of other cool features, the GALAXY Note 7 seems ready to take a bite out of you know who’s next...
