Review: Samsung Galaxy Note7 for T-Mobile

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

Editor's Note: In light of the safety issues plaguing the Note7, Phone Scoop strongly suggests consumers avoid purchasing this handset. A small percentage of Note7s have defective batteries that may ignite, burn, and catch fire. Some have caught fire on planes, while others burned up in the middle of the night, even when not plugged in. Please don't jeopardize your safety or the safety of those around you until/unless Samsung is able to convincingly and thoroughly sort out the problems. We have revised our overall rating of the Note7 to zero, for as long as these basic safety concerns remain.

The Note7 is the best large phone available today, if you can afford it.

First, the cost is absurd. At $900, it's likely unaffordable to most people. The carriers will sell it to you for about $40 per month.

Second, the Note7 is big. It's a phablet through and through, and phablets are unwieldy and often difficult to use one-handed. If you don't like big phones, maybe look at the Galaxy S7 instead.

Last, the Note7 is incredibly complicated. There are so many options, settings, and tools that it can be overwhelming for some. But for power users, it's all here.

If the cost, size, and intricate feature set don't bother you, then there's no reason to buy anything else. The Note7 is a gorgeous, high-quality piece of hardware that offers one of the best displays in the business. Other compelling features include the excellent call quality, strong data performance, solid battery life, and expandable memory.

Samsung did an excellent job adding value to Google's Android platform. The multitasking works very well and the S Pen stylus is easier to use than ever and takes on some genuinely helpful features. The Note7's camera is more straightforward than earlier Samsung cameras and, more importantly, it takes amazing photos.

The Galaxy Note7 is Samsung at its very best. Those in the market for a killer Android phone need look no further.
