23 useful Note 7 tips and tricks to make the most out of it
Samsung devices are well known for the level of complexity inherent to their custom TouchWiz interface. As these kept piling and piling over the years, back in 2015 Samsung decided that it's time to ease up and heeded the opinion of TouchWiz dissenters for a more lightweight interface. This brings us to today and the Note 7, which honestly feels much more thoroughly thought out in terms of its software.

If you think that that means Samsung hasn't included just a bucketload of features with its new extra-large smartphone, however, you'd be terribly wrong. In fact, after getting our hands on the manual to explore even further for interesting pieces of functionality, we felt overwhelmed as per usual. But if you're interested in the Note 7, then extra features are a welcome addition and not necessarily a downside.

This piece, in other words, is for those people.

Here are X potentially useful features of the Note 7, some of which not at all obvious.

I have a tip. The Note 7 fits the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ cases. On the Note 5 cases the camera hole on the back is off just a few millimeters. But the rear camera of the S6 Edge+ and the Note 7 are in the exact same location. The cases I am referring too, are the ones that hold the curved phones by the corners. Right now I am using my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 clear case while I wait on my full body protectors. But I love using the phone without a case. It just feels so sleek and refined. It's so hard to put down.

The video enhancer does indeed do a good job, particularly with the audio (In my experience) HOWEVER - it is extremely annoying to use because anytime you go into an app that doesn't support video enhancer, the quality and volume drop and it's very very noticeable. This happen even when looking at the lock screen or your home page. So for now I turned it off. Can't stand having to adjust the volume because the video enhancer keeps activating and deactivating. It's only useful if youre going to be in the app the supports it for a prolonged amount of time (so not ideal for using it with YouTube Music, for example)
