Samsung Galaxy Note 7: SingTel shop try out

Silver Samsung Galaxy Note 7: SingTel shop demo set
[NEW GADGET] On first look, I think it's more beautiful than its cousin, S7 Edge. Certainly not much bigger, in fact it has a slimmer outlook to it. In short, it is easy to say if the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has everything a S7 Edge can do and more, then essentially we are looking at the Android Smartphone of 2016.

September 2016 will belong to iPhone 7 but August 2016 will be Note 7's.

Glorious 5.7" OLED always-on display.
Note 7 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 resolution - 518 ppi) curved-edge OLED always-on display, probably the best screen in the market at the moment. Inside Note 7 are Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 (or in Singapore likely to be Exynos equivalent similar to S7 Edge), 4GB ram and 64GB storage expandable via microSD slot. 

Despite skipping number 6 in the series, Note 7 continues to be a phablet so S-Pen is its most prominent feature especially given the lack of smartphones with stylus in the market. Note 7's S-Pen is, on paper, twice as sensitive of Note 5's. And the demo set certainly prove so. Note 7 is also IP68 rated and amazingly S-Pen will work underwater!  

Note 7 is 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.99mm big and 169g  heavy with a 3500 mAh battery, 100 mAh smaller than S7 Edge. 

Back of Note 7 is obviously a fingerprint magnet. 
Besides hardware improvement, Note 7 also comes with some new innovations.

Note7 is apparently one of the first smartphones armed with a mobile High Dynamic Range video streaming-ready display, which, when paired with HDR content, would provide a more cinema-like experience with brighter colors and deeper blacks. 

Then there is the highly advertised Iris scanner supporting unlocking of the phone with your eyes. Only gripe is that bespectacled users has to remove their glasses for the scanner to work well. 

Note 7 is also launched with a pair of lens kit, which isn't available on demo, certainly curious to see how the lens kit in reality.

Note7 is available in Black Onyx (my favourite), Blue Coal (available at a later date), Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium for a recommended retail price of S$1,168 and depending on where you get it, a complimentary lens kit as well.   

And while the world celebrates another fantastic Samsung device, Samsung hints a ‘monster’ version of the phablet that sports 6GB of memory and a hefty 128 GB of internal storage would be available exclusively in China... 

Would you prefer that over the Singapore set?
