1. Galaxy Note7 S Pen Stylus
The Galaxy Note7 S Pen is more than a writing device. It allows users to implement their ideas when they strike without unlocking the screen by pinning the screen off memo. You can make and share unlimited GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) images using Smart Select and Air Command functions.
The ability of translation allows user to convert language with ease. The new unified app lets users make handwritten notes, draw pictures and edit memos from a single location. The S Pen can be used on wet screen as it is IP68 water resistant. It has a sharp and sensitive 0.7mm tip, which provides exact pressure on the screen and allows users to write or draw like a real pen.
2. Unlocking your Phone with Eyes
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the first phone which has the iris scanner to unlock the device. In addition, it has a fast fingerprint sensor which enhances its biometric authentication facility. According to the company the phone can recognize only one pair of iris and you can not use any high resolution picture of the owner’s eyes because it won’t have the similar infrared signature suppression.
The iris scanner is located on the top left corner from where an infra-red light flashes to authenticate the user by scanning his/her eyes. In order to activate the eye scanner, you need to,
- Press the power button
- Swipe up to get the lock screen
- Hold your phone from the distance of approximately 10 inches.
The process isn’t as fast as unlocking by fingerprint scanner, but much safer.
3. Secure Folder
You can also create a secure folder to store your secret files, images and apps. The phone allows user to create a separate account to keep and use apps in the secure folder.
Even if you give access to someone else on your phone, he/she won’t be able to open the secure folder because it requires the real user’s permission and will be unlocked with the eye scanner only. This technology makes the phone extremely secure and no one can use your data without your permission or in your absence.
