Samsung officially released the beautiful Galaxy Note 7 in stores today. Those who pre-ordered the Note 7 most likely received their Note 7s yesterday, which means there are many of you looking for accessories.
Samsung finally embraced USB Type C, the new standard in USB allowing for a fully reversible plug. Luckily most of the new Type C products that were faulty have worked their way out of the system with the help of Google’s Benson Leung and Amazon’s quality assurance team. With the Nexus line adopting USB Type C last year, as well as HTC, LG and Motorola, manufacturers have now expanded their portfolio of Type C accessories.
While the Note 7 is absolutely gorgeous, it is a phone that doesn’t feel nearly as big as its display looks. The entire phone is made of metal and glass just like its smaller siblings, the S7 and S7 edge. There are people like me who forgo the use of cases since we rarely drop our smartphones, but all it takes is one slip out of the pocket to crack and shatter the glass. It happened to me with my S7 edge and shattered the back glass.
While the broken back glass doesn’t really bother me aesthetically, it does bother me that the S7 edge I own is no longer water resistant. The worst part of the S7 edge broken glass is that is costs over $200 to fix it.
The Galaxy Note 7 is an extremely high priced phone so make sure you get the quality accessories that can live up to the standards of the phone you’re most likely going to own for the next two years.
