Specs Comparison: Galaxy Note 7 vs. Galaxy S7, Moto Z, G5, OnePlus 3, and HTC 10

The day is coming to a close and even though you are probably burned out on all of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 coverage, since it has fully dominated the past several hours, we wanted to toss out a specs comparison of Samsung’s latest flagship to the other top tier devices of the moment. After all, the phone arrives with a steeper than usual price and a set of specs that few can stand up with. But is all of this worth it when compared to say, the OnePlus 3 and its $400 price tag? Or is it better than the S7 Edge, which can be had for decent discounts these days? Or does it need a modular aspect like the G5 and Moto Z?

We’ll let you weigh in on that for now as we lead up to our full Galaxy Note 7 review. Let the battle begin.  (more…)

Video: Galaxy Note 7 First Look and Tour!

Hey, so we had our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 a bit today. Interested in taking a look at it? Hopefully, you just said “Yes.”

We spent time with all three colors that will hit the US, the black, blue, and silver. Overall, in hand, I can’t help but say that this phone feels ridiculously amazing. Samsung continues to do these really subtle curves to the backsides of phones that help them nestle in and hide a bit of their size shock. But with the Note 7, Samsung has also slightly curved the front side, so you get a phone that feels good in a way that not even the S7 Edge can lay claim to.  (more…)
