First Shots with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

We’ve had the pleasure of taking the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 around for a couple of days now. It’s not ready for its in-depth review just yet, but we’ve decided to show you some of the photos we’ve taken during our short walk as we ran errands around Bonifacio Global City. In our Initial Review and Lightning Review for Samsung’s flagship phablet, we shared a couple of shots taken in low light conditions, but here’s what it can do in broad day light.

The camera churned out a lot of awesome photos. ¬†We can’t say enough good things about its main shooter, because — and we’ve been saying this a lot — it may have borrowed its hardware from the Galaxy S7, but we really can’t complain given its results. Colors are very vivid with great saturation levels; just enough to make them pop. HDR was automatically turned on when the camera feels the need to balance out the varying exposure levels needed to make your shots better. But, what about the front camera? Let’s take a look.

If you’re a budding YouTube star or just love documenting precious moments with friends, family, or your “Bae” through video, you may be wondering how it did on that end as well. Here’s a sample of the videos taken during our walk with Video Stabilzation turned on in the first half and off at the halfway point in Full HD.

  1. They are playing it safe. Though the legacy camera of the series is good, I hope they did push the mobile camera a bit further, to make it more enticing. — this is coming from someone complaining about the device he can’t afford. On the plus side, at least Note 4 is beyond my reach now, but hopefully next year’s Note8 will push the value down even further, then I may claim it finally!

    1. I think the strategy is to actually build the Note 7 in line with the S7 series, so that they remain in sync every iteration. Just my two cents.
