Actually they are the one who make it a big issue when in fact it is not.
It is the same stupidity as plugging a 110v equipment to a 220v power outlet, but nobody called the 110v equipment a design flaw.
So happy it doesn't have the useless edge screen like that of the S7 Edge.
The glass back like the Note 5 and the same good old S-pen same as the Note 5's.
This is really the successor of the best Note ever, Note 5.

There's a good level of detail I could do with just a 5.5" of the Note 2.

Of course the bigger the screen the better. Of course I paint with real paint and surfaces. However, we are talking about the phone-Note's being compact and pocketable, that it is easy to carry around, and am able to sketch ideas for architecture, or demonstrate what I mean through sketching. I don't carry around my Note 8 I can't put it in my pocket, and the battery use is not that much.
I sketched that idea while in a cafe, for example. Anywhere, anytime.
S Pen great also for writing my notes. I even done sketching demos while screen mirroring it onto a projector for drawing workshops. It's useless for you, it isn't for professionals like me. You don't need it, don't go complaining it's useless - you have choices of other devices.

Pedro-TheNeighbor, 29 Jul 2016I find it VERY useful for sketching what I observe and what I can imagine...

It is hard to drawing on a tiny screen just only 5.5 to 6 inch, it is a hard job for you. I think those ppl who like drawing will choose a bigger screen such as 8 inch or more and the result and performance must be better than using a small screen. Am I right?
Even my friend use a 8inch tab and seldom drawing, he love drawing using the real not on small device.
Zootopia, 28 Jul 2016may be its just for fun, u can change itif i can make it "thug life" glasses, i will definitely buy note 7 :D

I prefer the non-edge Note 7... wish Samsung will manufacture 2 variants.... or else, I skip Note 7 this time. My Note 4 still running perfectly...

Do other phones do the same sort of multi window functions...
I do not use multiwindow often (less than a handful of times), but the S-pen gets used nearly daily... (for me).
Every time I am in a cafe or out and about, or working on a customers PC, and I need to jot down a quick note.. I always reach for pen and paper, and if I cannot instantly find one or the other, I just pick up my phone and pull out the pen...
Sometimes we do not use a feature as we haven't considered the applications for it, and so we 'forget' it is there...
The amount of times I was wasting 30 seconds trying to get something to jot down a quick note, realising that the time spent was more than the benefit to be gained, I rethought the process.. .whilst I do not think the S-Pen is as good as true paper and pencil (mostly due to screen size), it is an excellent feature, and a large part of why I didn't retire my Samsung Note when I got an iPad with Pencil.
30 seconds may not sound like much time, but when you charge several dollars a minute for your time, you want to deliver the best service to clients that is possible.
Working retail years ago, I asked the boss for a raise of twenty cents an hour, qualifying I would carry a notepad and pencil on me to increase my performance...
And for all the times I am out and about and my ten year old can do some art in Artrage (made by the people who made Kais Power Goo back in the windows 95 days), a free app that came with Samsungs phablet, it has concreted in my mind why I would not go without.
Drawing straight onto the screen means that the children prefer it over the Wacoms I have bought them in the house.
My ten year old now has a Galaxy Note (2), with only a data sim in it.
I bought Artrage for ipad; she doesn't care which platform she uses it on... but without a stylus, it would be much less practical.
My daughter has learned a lot about differing paints and how to apply them from just this one application.
Her art is phenominal for such a young person; and every free moment of the day she is with pencil and paper in hand drawing/sketching.
This was inspired by the free software on dads' phone.
S-pen is very useful.

You're better off with the S lineup if you don't need the S Pen. I take notes for meetings or working out things.
SaltandPepper, 28 Jul 2016S Pen is more useful than gimmicky remote play for me (IMO)I don't use pen on a small screen even it is 5 to 6 inch big. We can manage the phone as simple as we can why need to rely on a pen, I really don't know.

Nokia ruled supreme with them...
Being able to play your music through the car stereo /home stereo/mates stereo was awesome
Though many people like a receiver as well....
