Strong demand for Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 tests supply chain

The first Galaxy Note phablet launch in 2011 had raised many eyebrows, questioning the very existence of this form factor. Samsung has yet to return our request for comment, but the picture (above) appears to show the man using a third-party USB-C adaptor rather than the white cable included in the box with the Galaxy Note 7.

For those Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners who don't want to take the risk of paying the hefty screen replacement price in future, there is Samsung's $129 Protection Plus insurance plan which covers two accidental damages for two years.

Samsung Pay said online transactions made through the app reached 500 billion won since the service became available this year, accounting for 25 percent of transactions.

But the Note 7 packs a giant, curved 5.7 inch quad-HD AMOLED screen onto a almost bezel-free frame with a smaller footprint than the iPhone 6s Plus.

Did you experience any issues with Samsung Galaxy Note 7? Rumors, however, are pointing to a 32GB or 64GB internal storage with expandable microSD slots.

It is also worth noting the Galaxy Note 7 comes with Quad HD resolution while the 6s has an IPS LCD display. The Samsung Note 7 is one of the most powerful phablets in terms of performance - powered by Exynos 8890 64-bit Octa-core processor paired with 4 GB RAM.

Galaxy fans in Europe are waiting for the device to be launched, which is scheduled for a market roll-out on 2 September. A few other applications like ESPN and Netflix were also added. It has a huge battery of 3,500 mAh capacity.

Samsung could sell as many as 15 million Galaxy Note 7 phones this year, Chung said, compared with an estimated 9 million Galaxy Note 5 phones sold last year. For a phone of that costs close to $800, this is not unexpected. However, if you are not that picky with specs and you are after a steady handset for daily activites, then the Google Nexus 6P will suffice.
