That battery does very well in a 5 inch 1080p Zuk Z2 with a power sipping LTPS LCD. With a 5.7 inch 2k AMOLED with high nits, yeah not so much.
I can confirm this from the official Vietnamese N7 system.
Alien , 23 Jul 2016Ahh c'mon, we all know that Sammy has turned into the icrap of androids. It is a disgrace to t... morefeel free to give me links to a phone with that powerful hardware. i have the s7 and i have no problems what so ever. im also the smarter type that uses silicone cover, and have been using it for the past 10 years. i want my phones to look as new, when i sell them for a new phone. and i dont use the screen protector, bc i am careful with my stuff. i agree on the os could be better, but its not that horrible crap tho. win10 for pc, is a lot worse. i wish the s7 active came to europe, and then i would switch my s7 for the active, just for the battery. less than 4k battery, simply cant do it on screens over 1080p screens.
okay Im looking that people think they are tech savys and are just talking a phone they currently cant afford, or simply dont like it bigger battery doent means better battery life
for example note 5 is just 3000 mAh and iphone 6s plus is 2750 they have the same endurance rate in GSM arena test and pretty sure that the 3500 mAh will give an amazing performance like s7 edge wi 98 hours or it could be even better. I use note 5 ad I get 10 hours of use and Im always texting looking videos and photos. Im pretty sure note 7 will give me more battery life :D ( Exept playing pokemon go xD that reduce my battery life to 6 hours jaja )
LOL at all you whining girls. The philosophy now is to charge fast instead of huge batteries. Hook it up for 30 mins and you're 50% richer in juice. Get with the times.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2016I'm sure those pokemon go players will surely appreciate the smaller battery hahahAside from a thick cases, a primitive invention tied up to a phone with a cable will also be a big help to pokemon go players.
It's called power bank.
The.N.EI.G.H.B.O.R., 23 Jul 2016The higher the batte capacity, the better. F**** slim design - it's for vain people to boast h... moreBut they can always buy thick cases to protect their slim phones from scratches and falls.
A Note 4 user, 23 Jul 2016Still heavy as a brick. Why can't the do it 120g max? i feel my Note 4 every day, and every... morehow can it be the size of the phone is bigger plus the battery size how can you expect it to be around 120g plus its not plastic like the s3 COME ONE!! REALLY
in what way has it shrunk the battery of 3500 is bigger then any previous note series
I'm sure those pokemon go players will surely appreciate the smaller battery hahah
efeeyuboglu, 23 Jul 20166gb ram became 4gb ram.. snapdragon 823 became snapdragon 820.. 4000 mAh became 3600 mAh and... moreAt the rate the battery size shrinks in each subsequent rumour we will be lucky if it powers on at all by launch date!
RjLach, 23 Jul 2016Higher price because of the "edge".Which poor sales of the S6 Edge +, when there was no Note 5 in Europe, should have told Samsung people don't want. Samsung really do seem to be on a suicide mission.
Good luck Samsung...
Hope you RIP with your puny 3500mah
The worst phone ever
4000mA would be awesome in exchange for 1-2 mm extra thickness of the phone. Wish they could offer stock android variant also. That way you can expect more optimisation and hence more battery back-up.
Alien , 23 Jul 2016Ahh c'mon, we all know that Sammy has turned into the icrap of androids. It is a disgrace to t... moreI agree to most of your points but overall it's Sammy which has the best display quality, best camera & best battery back-up in comparison with its competitors.
Wish they had two variants of the same smartphone, one based on their touchwiz user interface & other based on stock android.
No 6gb, no sd821, no 3600-4000 mAh battery. At least there is still an iris scanner that you dont need. Disappointed? Thats the price in believing with leaks. Anyways, August is fast approaching. Let's see then if samsung failed your expectations.
Zenodroid, 23 Jul 2016i really hope that is a fake leak. why in the world, put in a worse battery than the s7 edge. ... moreAhh c'mon, we all know that Sammy has turned into the icrap of androids. It is a disgrace to the android community and the meaning of open source software.
Sammy doesn't give a f..k about their customers and their needs. All they want is to steal crapple clients by offering them an iPhone with Android.
I was thinking about buying the S7E, but not anymore. A friend bought it and I had the chance to play with it. It's full of unnecessary bloatware that nobody uses, the UI is horrible and the screen is bs. He sat on a chair and the phone dropped from his pocket on the floor. Need I say it's full of cracks? Quality build is crap on Sammy phones. All you see on the net is just marketing and hired trolls to praise them, while in fact they are almost the same as the other chinese fortune cookies.
I have a Sony phone and I've dropped it so many times harder and I barely have any scratches on it, no cracks. While everyone owning a Samsung has a cracked screen sooner or later. That's Sammy quality..
For a regular person it may be OK, but for tech nerds it's just an iPhone replica with Android on it, ruined by that touchwiz interface. Bleah!
