Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Samsung just announced their new Note 7 and this new Android smartphone looks very promising. I wish it had a removable battery (the Note 4 was the last in its series to have a removable battery), but at least the Note 7 has a microSD slot for memory expansion. In case you missed it, Samsung skipped the Note 6 and jumped right to the Note 7.

The Note 7 has some very interesting upgraded features:
  • Iris scanner
  • Water resistance
  • Curved display
  • USB-C
I've continued with my Note 4 because it has a removable battery and a microSD card slot. Samsung got rid of those features with the Note 5, but brought the microSD slot back in the Note 7. To maintain a slim profile and water resistance, the battery on the Note 7 is not user replaceable.

I'm still a big fan of using a stylus pen for jotting notes, drawing pictures, and marking things up so that I can remember what's important. This is the biggest reason why I don't think I'll be going back to an iPhone soon.

Medical students, residents, and physicians can easily use the built-in stylus pen to jot notes when they're speaking with a patient at the bedside. If you don't always carry a tablet with you, then it's nice to use your smartphone. You can always sync your notes with your other devices.
