If you are from the UK, then you know that some of the Galaxy Note 7 problems are easy to overcome, seeing as though it’s been 2 years since the release of the Note 4, and you missed out on last years upgrade. However, if you live in the US, then you might have a harder time coming to terms with some of the shortcomings of Samsung’s latest handset.
While we hate to always focus on the negative, we feel as though potential buyers need to know what the shortfalls of a device are before parting with their hard earned cash.
There are a quartet of Galaxy Note 7 problems that stand out to us, and those are being a bit on the expensive side. An increase in price over the outgoing model does make some of us worry that the iPhone 7 Plus could also cost more than the outgoing model.
Next up is that common issue where the Galaxy Note 7 Iris Scanner does not work as well as it should with those of you that have to wear glasses. We do hope that this issue can be overcome with a software update of some sort.
The third issue is to do with the S Pen features, as we very much doubt they will win over new buyers that were thinking of moving from the Galaxy S range over to the Note. Finally, it is to do with that S Pen again, as it just feels a bit too flimsy, and so you would not associate this with a premium product. It will be interesting to see if Apple launch the iPhone Pro with Pencil how it would compare to the Note 7.
