As you can see above these two phones are almost identical, with the newer Note 7 being obviously a little better. It has a larger display, the same specs under the hood, more storage starting at 64GB and a micro-SD slot to expand it. The camera is the same, which is top notch, and both are water resistant.

The areas of importance are the Galay Note 7 has a slightly bigger screen, more storage, the S-Pen (which works under water) for those who want a stylus, and a brand new Iris Eye scanner. This adds another level of security that can't be matched by a fingerprint.

The Galaxy Note 7 also has a new USB Type-C port for charging and syncing. This means users will need all new cables, although there's an adapter in the box so buyers can use old micro-USB cables and chargers.

USB Type-C is reversible and can be plugged in either way, which Note 7 owners will love, and it offers faster charging speeds.

    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
