Is this what’s slowing down Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7?

Galaxy Note 7 vs. Note 5 vs. S7 MicroSD
One of the most critical components of a smartphone is the built-in storage, which can make a huge difference in overall performance. Tests repeatedly show that Apple’s iPhone 6s is the fastest smartphone when it comes to storage speed, beating all rivals including high-end handsets from Samsung. Of course, the competition is getting better and better when it comes to built-in and expandable storage speed, with Samsung having already confirmed it has big plans in the years ahead. So, how does the brand new Galaxy Note 7 fare when it comes to storage performance?

Samsung will soon sell used flagship phones at deep discounts

Samsung Refurbished Smartphone Sales
For a leading smartphone company like Samsung, the only thing better than getting a customer to purchase a flagship smartphone is getting two different customers to purchase the same flagship smartphone. As Samsung seeks new ways to boost earnings as the high-end smartphone market becomes a far less reliable source of growth, a new report sheds light on one of the new programs the company plans to implement. Smartphone buyers in the US and other markets continue to flock to newer installment plan options that let them make low monthly payments and trade in their phones each year for new models. Now, it appears as though Samsung is getting ready to launch a new program that will see it refurbish and sell all those used phones.

Samsung’s best phone yet might have some quality issues that can’t be fixed

Galaxy Note 7 vs. iPhone 6s vs. Note 5
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 is definitely a head turner. Praised in reviews, the phone is one of Samsung’s finest creations, showing that the company learned a lot from its past mistakes and successes. However, the Galaxy Note 7 is not issue-free, and there already are several design concerns out there that you should know about, regardless of whether you’ve bought the phone already, or you’re thinking to get one.

The massive iPhone speed improvement that no one is talking about

iPhone vs Galaxy Note Storage Speed
Every year we want our pocket computers to be even faster at doing amazing smarter things and be more energy efficient than last year. We look for faster chips, more RAM, more storage, and bigger batteries. Smartphone makers often deliver, making each new smartphone generation quicker and better than the previous one. As consumers, we often focus on processor types, and the amount of memory and storage to determine whether a certain smartphone is going to be good enough. One thing we don’t always acknowledge is the quality of certain components, and we consistently fail to talk about the speed of one critical part of an iPhone or Android device: the speed of its “hard drive.” Having massive amounts of built-in flash memory and expandable storage isn’t enough if it’s not fast. Thankfully, some of the companies developing these storage solutions for iPhone and flagship Android devices are working on faster and more energy efficient storage solutions. Samsung is one of the company to keep an eye on when it comes to mobile storage, as it just announced plans to make its insanely fast smartphone storage solutions even quicker in the coming years, and that might benefit the iPhone as well.

The Galaxy Note 7 you wanted to buy may be coming soon

Galaxy Note 7 6GB RAM Release Date
Anything over 4GB of RAM in a smartphone is overkill at this point. However, that doesn’t mean that a device that packs 6GB of RAM (or even more) won’t be appealing to buyers, particularly a high-end handset that's already very popular with fans. For the longest time, the Galaxy Note 7 was rumored to be one of these 6GB RAM unicorns, but the device Samsung unveiled a few weeks ago was (from that perspective) a let-down. All Galaxy Note 7 versions out there, except a select few that are going to China, will have just 4GB of RAM inside.
