No matter what happens next, the Galaxy Note 7 is dead to us
Boy Genius Report
Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 was a big surprise to me when I first handled and previewed the phone back in early August. Weeks of leaks and rumors had painted a near-complete picture of the phone so we all knew what to expect, but rumors are never the same as actually holding the phone in your hand. The Note 7 was a masterpiece. It packed the world's most stunning 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display into a sleek design that wasn't just usable or manageable with one hand, it was actually comfortable. The curved front and back of the phone combined with wonderfully thin side bezels made it the most compact Samsung phablet ever, and the premium materials looked and felt outstanding. Then, a sprinkling of nifty new features on top of Samsung's already feature rich Android Marshmallow build sealed the deal.Now, two short months later, the Galaxy Note 7 is completely dead to me.
