This week I decided to upgrade my Galaxy S6 to the newly released Note 7, and it arrived in the mail last night. So far I’m more in love with it than any phone I’ve had to date. I love the sleek design and the solid weight that it has in the hand. It just feels great! I also love the screen, it seems like a huge improvement over the S6 which I’m really happy with. Beyond that, the curved edges are a nice touch, and I especially love the way that the time and date will display on the curved edge at night, making for the perfect bedside clock.
I haven’t done too much with the phone yet, but one of the first things I did was pick up the new Gear VR which is compatible with the Note 7. I enjoyed using the old Gear VR with the S6, however right out of the box I immediately realized that the new model is greatly improved over the old one. It’s much more comfortable to wear, and at times feels as if it’s not even there (at least compared to the awkward feeling of the old one). Also with the Note 7 I have yet to have the nagging overheating issues I’ve had with the S6, however I also haven’t done anything more taxing than watching a few 360 videos so far.
I’m looking forward to getting to know the Note 7 more intimately, but I can already tell I’m going to love it for a long time.
