Wiki Info: The Galaxy Note 7 is an evolution of the Galaxy Note 5 that inherited hardware components and improvements from the Galaxy S7, including the restoration of expandable storage and IP68 water resistance, and new features such as a dual-sided curved display, support for high-dynamic-range (HDR) color, improvements to the bundled stylus and new software features which utilize it, an iris recognition system, and a USB-C port. Demand for the Galaxy Note 7 on-launch was high, breaking pre-order records in South Korea and causing international releases to be delayed in some markets due to supply shortages.

Final Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a pretty great phone that was perfect for every day use and more than powerful enough to handle any VR app or game. Sadly Samsung did have a small problem with battery defects that did cause many Note 7 units to overheat, combust or even explode. Sadly this also means they were not exactly the best choice when being used in a Gear VR so close to your face. The good news is, any that are still working and out there in the market will probably be OK to use meaning you could snap up a real bargain. Just make sure you pay attention to any overheating notifications while in VR.
