Sounds like the same old specs for most Galaxy Notes, except it has ingress protection, and the coveted memory expansion. I'll be glad that the lowest model will be 64GB, and with that very important memory expansion slot.
I'm not worried about the 12MP camera, as I have tried the dual-pixel sensor of the S7 Edge which has excellent results. I really hope Samsung ditches the fragile glass back, and put in something tougher like the textured back of the S7 Active. I wonder how the S Pen will be IP certified... As I mentioned before, the sealed battery will probably have limitations of my usual HEAVY usage of 4GB LTE, 6 hours SOT.
natsss, 26 Jun 2016whatever the godnes samsung product have been made, its always be inferior. the simple example... moreWhat do you know for take the Samsung the Galaxy Note 7 as being inferior to iPhone? Already you saw some, or you had with some in your hands? Samsung in the latest years as improved in quality their smartphones, specially the S and Note series. Please don't qualify the next Galaxy Note 7 as being inferior without see first.
Well, it's that time that I can upgrade my current Note 3. But having a 10000mAh extended battery for the past 4 months is really giving me second thoughts. I tried my wife's S7 Edge, and that thing can only last me 12 hours per charge with the way i user it.
With an extended battery, i can consume my usual HEAVY 3-4 GB of LTE, 6 hours SOT, and still have 40% left when i get home after 16 hours later. No need carrying a powerbank, or plug-in.
I would still love that dual pixel sensor.
This phone is in production already! Come on Samsung, have a little respect of your customers, stop rumours and give some definite information.
We will get the confirmation that only the EDGE screen model will be available, will forget about Note 7 and will move on looking for another option from a different manufacturer.

you people can never be contented. just make good of what you have or...build your own phone.

whatever the godnes samsung product have been made, its always be inferior. the simple example is audio record. i always record my voice then i compare with iphone its samsung been sucked. the conclusion is samsung cannot see small mistakes
Holy cow, are people actually dense enough to buy this crap? I mean, this is 99% the same phone as the Note 4 and Note 5.
Then again, people have been buying the same iPhone since the iPhone 4.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2016Thats extreme and awesome. What about the note 4 then and its 10,000mah battery?
You can pick... moreWell, I thought about that, but skipped Note4 purely for its poor speaker performance (compared to Note2). Loudspeaker is second important thing for me after removable battery.
Sadly sasmung didnt get it just right with Note4. I compared Note2 vs Note4 loudspeaker (using my friends note4) and found it quite crappy.
Sure there is many other positive aspects when comparing note vs note2 (better camera with OIS, gps with beidou support (important to me), 4G, but that could not convince me to switch since good loudspeaker is more important to me becouse I really use it a lot.
Still... Samsung is still the worst company when it comes to android updates.
What a shame for a $750 phone.
Going for HTC 10 or Motorola Z

You can pick one up for pike 200 and then the 10kmah case.
Ive had both and the note 4 is a nice little upgrade in almost all ways. And the verizon is finally now hackable after all these years.
But the note 2 is still an awesome device. If i had no other options and had to go back to a note 2 again id be fine. Wxynoa, amazing screen, good battery and like 60-100 price tage.
I tell people all the time just go to ebay and depending on conditon and carrier its about 60-120 and you have an amazing phone thats much better than most other 100-$300 phone they wish they could get or would buy from the store.
Slap it on straight talk and youre golden. Or sprints 60-80 plan if you want root and unlimited data and sprint is actually decent in your area
I guess I will skip it again... if battery isn't going to be removable. I'm enjoying my 8.5days battery life and 12h SOT using Zerolemon 9300mAh + Note 2.
I was really hoping they would have finally updated that front camera some.
Hopefully the main camera will have been refined a little more for better exposure and less sharpening. And maybe the aperture or lense will be improved. At least will in the S8.
And hopefully they use a beefier speaker and use 3600-4000mah battery.
Higher storage of the ufs kind plus sd slot? Yes. Water resistance????? Duh!!
Lets hope samsung upgrades their shatter resistance and all phones get at least the base level resistance from note 7 or s8 on. And ip68. That would be amazing.
And i imagine the S8 will for sure finally upgrade that 5mp sensor.
