While the launch is as exciting as always, there aren’t a lot of surprises on Galaxy Note 7. As expected, the Galaxy Note 7 shares a lot of features with the Galaxy S7 Edge, but it’s as functional as every other Note before it. The Note series is one of our personal favorites and we’re glad that Samsung is folding the Edge into the Note. It makes for a truly unique and well-rounded device. The obvious question, then, is whether the Galaxy Note 7 is worth the extra cost when compared to its older brethren, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Both of which lack a stylus, of course, but are significantly cheaper as a result.

Need help deciding? We’ve pitted the three against one another in a smartphone fight to the finish.
