Galaxy Note 7 unboxing

In this video, we get to take a look at the phone’s box and bundled accessories, as well as a quick look at its most important features.

Galaxy Note 7 S Pen

A short video dedicates to the S Pen tells you everything you need to know about the new stylus. We’re looking at a redesigned S Pen that’s more sensitive and should be more comfortable to hold. The stylus also comes with neat new software tricks, including translation support, or GIF-making support, and features that Samsung conceived to go along with the Always on display.

Hilariously, Samsung even makes fun of one of the S Pen problems from the Galaxy Note 5: sticking the S Pen backwards. That’s not an issue anymore Samsung says, indicating that it used to be a problem.
