7 surprises in Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 smartphone

Al Sacco | Aug. 3, 2016
The new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone is available via presale this week. Here's a detailed breakdown of the most notable new features in Samsung's latest phablet phone.

The recent Note phones have been known for better-than-average battery life, due to their big power packs. But the Note 7 has a slightly smaller battery (3,500) than the GS7 edge (3,600). The Note 7 is also thicker than the Note 5, though not by much.

7. Galaxy Note 7 has 64GB of fixed storage 

The last-generation Note 5 came with either 32GB of 64GB of storage. The GS7 and GS7 edge offered only 32GB, though they both support expandable memory via microSD cards. Like the latest Galaxy S phones, the Note 7 has just one built-in storage option, but it's double the GS7s: 64GB. The new Note also supports external microSD memory cards. For most folks, 64GB should be enough storage space, especially if you use a memory card. But people looking for a 128GB (or higher) option are out of luck.

You can learn more about Samsung's new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone on the company's website.
