Te Note tupuni 7 Ko te hokinga ki te UK hoki a Samsung kingi o nga phablets stylus-rawa, engari e tino hiahia ana te tangata he stylus muri?
Ahakoa, ki te te whakahoki he "kahore" me kore koutou pa ki te "S pene", te Tuhipoka 7 tuku te tahi mea atu. Ko tetahi o nga waea tuatahi o tetahi rahi kaiwhakamahi e taea iriti te whakamahi i ratou kanohi ki te matawai hanga-i roto i te iris pōkākā.

The curved screen edges are more aesthetic than functional, but help to maintain a narrow width which makes holding the Note 7 so much easier than almost any other phablet. It feels great in the hand, with a level of refinement in the edges, materials and shape beyond any previous Note.
The 5.7in quad HD AMOLED screen is one of the brightest, clearest and best I’ve ever seen on a smartphone, with inky blacks and bold colours. It’s clearly visible outdoors, which is remarkable for the often easily washed out OLED-based screens, and is even better than that fitted to the already excellent S7 Edge.
te Tuhipoka 7 is also waterproof to IP68 standards which means 1.5m for 30 minutes in fresh water. The ports are open, which means no fiddly doors, including the stylus slot and its S Pen, e taea inaianei te mahi raro i runga i te mata rawa.

Most of Samsung’s modifications to Android are good, particularly as Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now out of date. It has more quick settings, more power-saving modes including a system to identify and put unused apps to sleep, extensive control over notifications including the power of the vibration, and a built-in blue light filter for nighttime use.
The small audio output settings in the notification shade allow you to switch output between various Bluetooth devices, headphones and the internal speakers, without having to disconnect anything.
A collection of small edge utilities are available, useful for quickly accessing contacts or apps, but little beyond that. They can be removed if you do not find them useful. Samsung’s gaming tools can record game footage, stop notifications or buttons from disrupting play and can limit the smartphone’s performance to save battery power. You can minimise a game without pausing it too.
It’s not all good, Heoi. The Upday social news aggregator panel on the homescreen (which replaced Flipboard on earlier Samsung phones) I found irritating so I turned it off. I also suffered a bug with Samsung’s new Cloud sync service, which backs up the phone’s contents to Samsung’s free 15GB cloud storage, which caused the Android media server service to rapidly drain the battery.
Media server bugs are common with Samsung smartphones, usually associated with corrupted images particularly on SD cards, although not in this case as I did not have a microSD card installed at the time. Turning off Samsung Cloud syncing was the only solution to the battery drain I could find. It is likely the result of using a pre-release device; it got several updates in the time I had with it.
Microsoft’s Office, Skype and OneDrive apps come pre-installed, which can be disabled but not uninstalled.
The rest of Samsung’s software tweaks to Android are to support the S Pen stylus, which is one of the best small styluses available. The pressure-sensitive nib is significantly smaller than previous versions, which makes it feel more accurate, while the whole system is very responsive as long as you’re using a Samsung app.
Using the stylus in Evernote, hei tauira, a little bit of lag was noticeable but the feel on the screen has also been improved making it much more like drawing on paper.
Samsung’s new Notes app collects together most of the stylus features in one place. Hand-drawn notes, text, handwriting recognition, audio and images can be collated and synced with Samsung Cloud, but sadly not Evernote like Samsung’s older S Notes.
You can use the stylus to make quick selections of text for translation, screen annotations and use a solid collection of productivity tools. The S Pen works on the screen when the phone is asleep, which is saved to Samsung Notes and can be pinned on the screen like a post-it note.
All the stylus’s features can also be used when the screen is wet, which means it can be used underwater, if you really want. When not in use the stylus docks neatly into the phone.
The stylus is quite useful for drawing small diagrams, sketches or handwritten notes, but not much more than that. But it does have one killer new feature: instant gif making. You can record an area of the screen to make a gif of up to 15 hēkona.
The fingerprint scanner on the front is the same as the Galaxy S7 Edge and is solid, recognising my fingers and thumbs instantly most of the time. It will also secure apps, purchases and passwords, just like any other Android Marshmallow or later device.
te Tuhipoka 7 is one of the first smartphones to feature iris scanning, which uses an infrared camera to record and then match the unique patterns of your irises. It’ll match either or both your eyes, and works very well, unlocking the phone or authenticating something within a second.
You have to raise it up to eye level for it to reliably work, but it will recognise me even with an off-centre glance at the right height. I do not wear glasses or use contact lenses.
It isn’t as convenient as the fingerprint scanner, and requires a swipe up on the screen to activate, but works when your hands or the fingerprint scanner are covered, which will be very useful in winter.
te Tuhipoka 7 has the same front and back camera as the Galaxy S7 Edge, which are some of the best available on a smartphone.
The rear 12-megapixel camera is fast, great in low-light and makes it difficult to take a poor photo. It can take RAW photos too. The front-facing 5-megapixel selfie camera is good, but lacks fine detail, producing softer-looking photos that some may find more flattering.
- The back glass has surprisingly high levels of friction, which makes it easier to keep hold of, but also makes it a fingerprint magnet
- There’s a heart beat sensor on the back that barely anyone will employ for health monitoring, but it can be used as a selfie camera trigger
- You can only register four fingerprints on the scanner
- The always-on display shows the time, date, calendar or image, depending on your settings, and can be scheduled to turn on or off between set hours to not keep you up at night, tahuri ranei atu rawa
- The always-on display (which I had active turning my battery tests) consumed around 10-15% of battery life each day
- te Tuhipoka 7 had the strongest signal of any smartphone I’ve tested, but suffered battery drain and got hot in the congested network conditions of London commuter trains
Te Note Samsung nga tupuni 7 costs £700 and is available in three colours: pango, blue with gold sides, and silver.
No te whakarite, te 5.5in Galaxy S7 Edge costs £639, the 5.7in Google Nexus 6P costs £449 (64GB is £499) me te 5.5in Apple iPhone 6S Plus costs £619 (64GB is £699), e hanga te Tuhipoka 7 about the same price as top-end rivals.
Te Note Samsung nga tupuni 7 Ko, kahore feaa, te phablet pai haere. te reira kaha, ki tonu i te āhuatanga whai hua, me te iti i roto i te ara o te fa'amu'amu, a whakarato kore mahi noa taputapu hua ētahi atu.
The S Pen is something you may not use all the time, but comes in really handy at least once a day for me, and when not in use safely docks out the way, not detracting from the aesthetic or function of the phone.
The cameras, matawai tapumati, utu ahokore, waterproofing and screen are also top notch. So is the fit, finish and feel of the device. The iris scanner is a novelty that may become more useful when winter rolls along. But it is the curved edges and minuscule bezels around the screen that are the Note 7’s best bit.
They make a very large phone feel not too big too hold – it’s more manageable than any other 5.7in phablet without sacrificing screen real estate.
The only real downside, which has been the same for each of Samsung’s Note series launched around August, is that its software is no longer up to date. Android 7.0 Nougat is much improved on notifications and battery life. te Tuhipoka 7 will get an update to Nougat, but when is unknown.
AtAKi: waterproof, curved screen and back, matawai tapumati, iris scanner, utu ahokore, mokamoka kāri microSD, S Pen, brilliant display, kāmera nui
Raruraru: not yet Android 7 Nougat, only one day’s battery, utu
