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



Battery Life

Battery Life

The Galaxy S7 Edge has a massive 3,600 mAh battery and it's one of the battery life kings in terms of flagship smartphones. That battery is bigger than the Galaxy Note 5, and bigger than the new Galaxy Note 7.

The Galaxy Note 7 has a bigger screen but a smaller 3,500 mAh battery. It's only 100 mAh, which isn't a big deal, but it is something owners need to think about. If you don't need the bigger screen or the stylus, the S7 Edge will potentially have slightly better battery life. Only by a hair though. Then again, the Note has more storage. So choose what works best for you, what you need, and get the best phone for your individual needs.

In the end though, these should get similar battery life with the Galaxy S7 Edge probably lasting a little longer, but the Note 7 recharges faster with USB Type-C.

A quick 30 minute drive will get users from 0-60% or more, and the Note 7 will fully recharge from 0-100% in 90 minutes. It has the biggest battery of any Note device, but still isn't as big as the Galaxy S7 Edge.

    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
