Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs. S7 Edge: Is scribbling worth the extra scrilla?

The new Galaxy Note 7 is a venerable powerhouse of a smartphone. It may not look much like the Galaxy Note 5 before it, but that’s arguably for the best. In contrast to its exceptionally flat predecessor, it’s adopted the subtle curves of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 series. But the changes aren’t just surface level. The Note 7 sports Qualcomm’s cutting-edge Snapdragon 820, the same chip found in such flagships as the LG G5, the HTC 10, the OnePlus 3. It’s got an abundance of memory, too — 4GB of RAM — and top-of-the-line cameras.

The device’s undisputed showstopper, however, is its gorgeous display: a 5.7-inch quad HD Super AMOLED screen with its 2,560 x 1,440-pixel resolution and a slight curve on either edge. The Galaxy Note 7, you might say, is the stylus-touting smartphone that dreams are made of. But that top-of-the-line hardware carries an appropriately high price tag. The obvious question, then, is whether the Galaxy Note 7 is worth the extra cost when compared to its older brethren, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Both of which lack a stylus, of course, but are significantly cheaper as a result.
