Samsung show off their new Galaxy Note7 phone


Former Reckoner podcast host (now big-shot, blue-ticked superstar), Pete Wells, travelled to NYC to be amongst the world’s first to get hands on with the new Samsung Galaxy Note7. His impressions:

In a year of disappointing Android releases, the one device that’s stood out so far has been the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Samsung refined the gorgeous curved screen design, while addressing all the major concerns of the S6 variant. With the Note7, Samsung refines the design again, this time adding the same curved glass panel to the back of the phone.

It’s a subtle change, but the symmetrical curved glass looks stunning, and makes it much easier to hold than other phones this large. After a brief time with it, the Note7 is simply the most unique and attractive phone this year…

Pete’s obviously pretty impressed and should I be Androind inclined I would be too. The Iris scanner looks particularly interesting, I’d like to see a demo of that up close and personal, but other than that it’s really just a feature bump to bring the line up to date.
