Here’s a practical demonstration video of Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Take a good look at it.
IRIS SCANNING TECHNOLOGY:
Samsung team has put this particular feature at the center of all the publicity and marketing of Galaxy Note 7, as it is the first Samsung phone to sport an eye-scanning tool as a security measure.
Iris scanner comes as the next big thing after the contemporary Biometric Secuirty tool being used in most recent phones. That is, the fingerprint sensor.
Iris scanner unlocks in a matter of milli seconds. The scanner can detect your Iris even if you are wearing spectacles.
A lot of banks in Korea have already adopted Note 7’s Iris scanner and so the clients will be able to use banking services on their phones after unlocking them via Iris scanner.
First off, HDR stands for High dynamic range and this is the something Note 7 will provide in terms of video quality.
High dynamic range video is even better than our current high definition or 4K standards.
It’s something that was only present in high quality projectors and LED TVs. So it’s safe to say Note 7 is the first of its kind to put in place such video standard.
Many phones today like the iPhone do include a HDR camera, but what sets Note 7 apart is the fact its HDR feature extends to the screen too and not just the camera.
EXTRA SPECIAL STYLUS OR S-PEN:
S-Pen has been significantly improved from a lot of perspectives. Be it the aesthetic factor or its pressure sensitivity, Note 7’s S-Pen looks like a perfect package.
The S-Pen is not going to break even if the slide the wrong side in.
The S-Pen’s tip appears sharper this time and will deliver all the precision you need.
All in all, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a great product, but might not be a great buy, as it does have competitors like OnePlus 3 which also sports an Iris scanner but comes at a cheaper price.
