Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy S7 Edge: What You Need to Know



Galaxy S7 Edge vs Note 7: Display

Galaxy S7 Edge vs Note 7: Display

The Galaxy Note 7 has a bigger 5.7-inch Quad-HD display, with the same curved "Edge" design as the Galaxy S7 Edge. It's hard to see from the photo, but the curve is actually less pronounced and visible on the Galaxy Note 7. The edge is still there, but it curves into the body in a smooth way.

Samsung actually states it isn't as curved as the Galaxy S7 Edge, but still curved enough to be useful. They're both great, but I don't use the Edge all that much, and buying either one you'll get to try it too. At least it looks cool.

Either way the Galaxy Note 7 will be slightly larger than the S7 Edge physically and in terms of the screen size, but not by much. Looking at the photo you can see they're almost the same size. The smaller S7 Edge has more pixels per inch on the screen so technically has a better display. The Note 7 gets brighter though. Both have stunning Quad-HD Samsung Super AMOLED screens that are the best on the market.

At the end of the day, if you think you can handle a phone bigger than the Galaxy S7 Edge and want the latest and greatest the Note 7 is for you. If 5.5-inches is big enough and the Stylus isn't all that important, grab the Galaxy S7 Edge.

If the S-Pen isn't something you need often, and the S7 Edge size is close enough, we'd highly recommend buying it while Samsung sorts out the Note 7 recall and battery woes.

    Galaxy Note 7 is going to be the best smartphone for the following year, at least this that is my opinion. For now I look at this Ringke fusion case and I really love it.

    I have a Galaxy s7edge but wonder if the note 7 have the always on function and the double click of the home key for the camera. I really love those features. I had a note 3 and loved the larger screen. So I am torn between the two.

      The Note 7 does have the always on function. Not sure about the home key for the camera though. I will try it.

    Angel, I’m in the same position as you. I have the Note 7 as well and the recall is breaking my heart. I have not owned anything but one Note model or another since the first Note was released. It’s my perfect dream phone. Thet had rereleased the Note early this month and I just hadn’t had time to exchange it, then this past week I learned that Samsung was pulling the new ones as well and just not selling the Note 7…no intent to release again. I love the Spen technology, and the fact that storage is DOUBLE that of the S7 Edge. Just devastated
