Getting a new smartphone usually provides you with a warm feeling inside but for some, this joy is short as it is replaced by the fear of learning something new, especially if you’re switching from the iPhone to Android. Even if it’s just from another Android phone, each new smartphone comes with a range of new features so how do you do the basic tasks, as well as take full advantage of the more advanced features?

Before we get into how to do specific tasks, what’s new with the Galaxy Note 7?

This year’s Galaxy Note iteration skips a number and brings a tweaked version of the Galaxy S7 Edge with a few additional features. Like Samsung’s s-flagship, the Note 7 offers IP68 water and dust resistance, a dual curved display, powerful internals and an excellent camera.

However, the Note 7 also adds a narrower edge display and symmetrical design that improves handling and an updated S-Pen, with a finer tip, IP68 protection and the ability to create GIFs. For more, head over to our Galaxy Note 7 review.

Now you know the features to watch out for, let’s take a look at how to do the basics. If you’re one of the people who bought a Galaxy Note 7 and had it arrived on your doorstep today, you might be wondering about how to do some very basic things.  This beginner’s guide will walk you through these as well as how to take advantage of the more advanced features.
