xxx, 08 Aug 2016then dont buy this phone.....i think you are poor people who dont have a money :pXXX i so agree with you 100% and people does fall for the gimmicks and quick to fork out money for minor upgrades every year........no radio and built in batteries for flagships is the norm now.......glad for those who are caught up with hype
What is wrong with you "non removal battery" MOANERS?!
I was one of the anti "non removal battery" myself.
But now thanks Samsung made us a battery that is charged in 1/2 hr and lasts more than ever. They also made a backup battery that can be bought separately to be attached to the back of the mobile and it would charge it wirelessly.
How else would the phone be water resistance if the battery would be removable.
What is wrong with that?
Correct me if I am wrong.

Talk about gimmicks.
A lot of complains about ir blaster annd FM radio on this site. Those people can afford to buy this phone must have internet connection and smart TV. Sour grapes say the fox. Remouvable battery is not important. I will never buy an other battery to replace it, and I think nobody will do with the existing fast charging right now. Most opinions posted here are from hatters or kids. The most of features of this phone will have also a chipper chinese phone. But not the same display, camera or design. And IOS is not much better than android. Iphone 6s plus is more expensive than note7 with lower specs. But note 7 is way better than any Iphone including iphone 7 pro.
Enyway is a marketing trick. Both Samsung and Apple are doing the minimal improuvements to keep the pozition on the market.

An active digitizer pen that has 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity which is twice more than standard Wacom pen system. Water-resistance. Best camera on a mobile phone right now, ranked #1 (via S7 Edge). HDR video. Iris scanner. Return of memory expansion.
And way better than the Note.5.
I have to say that I am disappointed .. I mean there is now WOW factor .. everyone was waiting for the Note7 release so badly .. but all what u get is an expensive S7 with a stylus .. ok and maybe couple of more features .. like the iris scanner and c connector .. thats it ... but is this what customers were waiting for!??
I have been postponing the decision of buying a new phone for so long now, waiting for the Note7 .. and here it is!!
I am a very satisfied owner of an HTC but I did not like the HTC 10 .. it was more disappointing. I am not sure what to buy now!?? may be oneplus3 or s7 .. im really disappointed.

I think samsung company despite first magnanimous start on "Galaxy s" in about 5-6 years ago ,the time that Iphone had looked like a Lord , it seem that SAM run in a way that Iphone had been run! EXPENSIVE!!! with many feature that exist in another brands .
I use to "Galaxy S ii i9100" about 4 years, when SAM show up to us some benefits> quality ,best screen resolution , comfortable ... ,,, and now i found another company that grow up same way that SAM started

All appliances that works on remote control comes with their dedicated remote controller so why worry about IR?
IR useful for lost remotes or accessing devices you don't have remotes for like office aircons or TVs (even the aircon's in nightclubs) Basically acts like a universal remote with the right app.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2016IR for what? It is useless, who needs IR in the world of Wi-Fi?IR transforms your smartphone into universal remote control for TVs, air conditioners, you name it. Note 4 has IR and it's VERY handy.
Seth Setiadha, 08 Aug 2016Thou I like the design better but I still dont like the glass back design, no replaceable batt... moreI agree, because of the following points:
No IR / 12 MP instead of 13 MP (Note3) or 16 MP (Note4) / Although it has an aperture of F/1.7, inbuilt zoom is 26 mm instead of 31 mm / No info available about MHL 3 TV-out, Air Gesture and usage of both of the cameras at the same time / Headphone jack at the bottom instead of top, so can't connect the earphones and keep it straight (will have to be upside down) in pocket.
Not saying that Note7 is a bad deal, but these few small options could have made it the best in the market, when Samsung is trying to compete with Apple and other big players. Waiting for Sept to grab it.
no ir, 08 Aug 2016skip >>> fail no IRIR for what? It is useless, who needs IR in the world of Wi-Fi?
AaronG85, 08 Aug 2016IR is a useful feature but I don't think it will ever be making a comeback.Useful for what? You cannot even mention two!

Why did Samsung bring back the glass back, non removable battery, fast charging and wireless charging just like what they did to bring back the microSD card support?
That is what you called silliness, bringing them back, including the latter?
