With fantastic curved glass, extraordinary stellar specifications, better new S pen and other cutting-edge features, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is raising the standard of big screen smartphones, it is going to generate some beating to the upcoming  iPhone 7 Plus and remind Apple where to get upgraded. 

When it comes to the battery, is always about fast charging or quick charging. Galaxy Note 7 is sporting a 3500mAh battery, even though it is a tad bit smaller than the Galaxy S7 Edge announced earlier this year, it is still able to last the entire day for most users. Note 7 added an option to downgrade the screen resolution to 720P from 2K which can save much power when the battery is going to die.

Galaxy Note 7 has a different Adaptive Fast Charger than earlier Samsung phones. The Note 7’s charger is 12V, 2.1A while the Note 5 and S 7-series chargers output 9V, 1.67A . QC 2.0 supports a maximum of 2A and works with 5V, 9V, and 12V chargers. Qualcomm’s website lists the Note 7 as a Quick Charge 2.0 device.

Why not Quick Charge 3.0?

In fact, the US version of Galaxy Note 7 is sporting the Snapdragon 820, which is a Quick Charge 3.0 compatible processor. While the global version of Galaxy Note 7 is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos chipsets. The highlighted feature of Quick Charge 3.0 is the capability to recharge a phone from 0-80% in just 35 minutes, which is insanely fast. However, Galaxy Note 7 Quick Charge function had stuck to the Quick Charge 2.0 standard, which is somewhat slower, but likely safer and easier on the battery in terms of longevity.

Galaxy Note 7 can be recharged from 0-50% in just 25 minutes, and fully recharged in 85 minutes.

2.Use Quick Charge 2.0/3.0 charger

Generally we need more than one chargers for daily use, one at home, one in the office, even one in the car. Except for the official charger, many manufacturers provide more options of qualified chargers. Many manufacturers are offering Quick Charge 3.0 accessories now, and they’re backwards compatible with Quick Charge 2.0 phones as well. Galaxy Note 7 appears to only be QC 2.0, not 3.0, but this will mean your charger is future proof.
