(Above is my Note 7 fully charged to 100% and with green icon, this is an ORIGINAL Note 7, not the second edition.)
For those of you STILL using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, we highly recommend you to return it to Samsung or local carrier. But there are instances like where you may not be able to get your full money back. I bought my international Galaxy Note 7 on eBay and could not get my money back as it was over 30-days for the return period plus eBay doesn’t have policies protecting Galaxy Note 7 buyers. You may be in the same boat where you acquired the Note 7 overseas and it may mean you are stuck with the phone.
Here’s an extreme test of Galaxy Note 7’s IP68 waterproof design, we put the phone in 100+ degree of hot spa water for an HOUR! Will it blow up?
Many waterproof tests have been done in the past and the Galaxy S7 Edge (which has same waterproof design as Note 7) lived up to freeze tests, but there are no previous waterproof tests involving high temperatures with long hours in water.
It’s been almost 5 years since I broke the screen on my Galaxy S3. Ever since then, I have used a case on all of my smartphones and have never cracked the screen. Well, a few weeks back I forgot to put the case back on while using my Honor 8 and dropped it. Even though it was a very small 6-inch drop, it fell face down into one of stones in my backyard, causing the screen to crack.
In our latest underwater test, we took the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 through various underwater tests including unlocking phone, using IRIS underwater, browsing the web, typing underwater, watching YouTube videos under water, playing games, recording videos underwater, taking selfies underwater, and using different apps underwater. The result was pretty amazing.
For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 7, currently you can root Exynos-based models of Galaxy Note 7 including the SM-N930F, SM-N930FD, and Korean SM-N930K/S/L. U.S. models based on Qualcomm are not yet supported such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon as they have locked bootloaders. If you absolutely want root on your Note 7 and you have AT&T, T-Mobile, or any other GSM carrier in the U.S., you can grab the SM-N930F or SM-N930FD model, which work flawless on GSM networks like AT&T or T-Mobile. (You can grab SM-N930FD on eBay for around $699 also much cheaper.)
If you want to protect your brand, new Galaxy Note 7, you may want to consider getting a nice case for it. VRS Design sent us some cases and here’s a quick look.
First, I really dig their Note 7 Crystal Bumper cases, which feature transparent back with nice transparent bumper. I use this primarily as my daily driver on my S7 Edge for many months and it has protected my phone many times from drops.
