Samsung Likely Working On A Phone Leasing Service Like ‘Apple iPhone Upgrade …

Galaxy S7 expected to be Samsung’s toughest handset.

While Samsung’s Galaxy S7 isn’t expected to arrive until March of next year, the rumour mill is already working away. If you like large phones, Samsung has two current models—the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5—to choose between, as well as last year’s model, the Note 4, which was my favorite large screen phone, at least until the iPhone 6 Plus came out.I’ve been on a tablet binge, first with Apple’s iPad Pro in San Francisco, then last week with two great new Android tablets: the 9.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and Sony’s versatile Xperia Z4.

Both Samsung and Sony are busy inventing new reasons for us to buy tablets, and they need to because we are holding on to our tablets like old family photos with little desire to upgrade to newer models. This just may be the “back to the future” tablet, with Samsung downgrading features on last year’s Tab S and producing a tablet that’s eerily similar to the iPad Air 2.

Both have the same 5.7-inch, 2,560-by-1,440-pixel Super AMOLED display—which is a very bright, vibrant screen—and the same 16-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. Both include Samsung’s TouchWiz enhancements on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is lighter than in previous versions, even if I didn’t appreciate some of the missing features from the S Planner calendar app. Then there’s the powerful 8-core processor, which scored 54714 on AnTuTu’s benchmark (version 5.7.1) and blows most of the competition out of the water.

When you pull out the stylus, you can immediately select an action memo, which lets you add an item to your calendar or send a quick email with your writing. The S Note applications lets you create a variety of different kinds of notes (mostly different backgrounds), and offers a variety of pens, erasers, and colors to let you create what you want. You can also hover over a form in an app like S Planner (the calendar app) or Contacts, to use handwriting to enter a field and it will convert your handwriting to text.

I still can’t say the handwriting app does a perfect job of reading my handwriting, but it’s getting better, and there were times when it was very convenient to write down notes instead of typing them out. One minor issue: I’ve seen a number of complaints that if you stick the S-Pen in the phone backwards (with the tip facing out), the stylus can get stuck and trying to remove it can permanently damage the device.
