PARAG B, 30 Aug 2016what! now you are expecting me to like 9mp vs 16mp photos ...Dude are you serious?LOLHave a look at the camera shoot out by gsmarena... The 12MP GN7 beats the 16MP GN5 in all areas apart from macro. The image quality of the 9MP photos is IDENTICAL to the 12MP photos... All they do is crop a strip at the top and bottom... Horizontal resolution stays the same. So yes... The 9MP GN7 beats the 16MP GN5 without a doubt.
Just read on Androidheadlines.com that loads of having crashing problems with the Note 7 plus Over Heating Issues,so Samsung like i have said before i just rushed out the Note 7 just to pressure on the New Apple iPhone 7 models

Samsung will likely take that out, and introduce something the Note7 doesn't have in hardware. Pressure input at last?
Then there's the UFS card slot that didn't make it to the Note7. And likely a 17MP camera with F/1.7.

I highly doubt they will take away the SD card again since they've realized it bumped up sales. There's really no significant feature that the Note 7 offers to take away in 8.
If anything, 8 will offer the performance gains to make it worth getting it over the 5 (which doesn't seem to be offer enough power/performance advantages).
Any type of software improvements 7 has will end up on 5 anyways. But Note 7 is plenty worth it for those coming from version 4 and under.

If you don't like it just use the 9MP 16:9 option... There is no difference in image quality because the horizontal pixels are the same... Either way the 9MP or 12MP setting on the GN7 beats the 16MP GN5 in good or low light.

If anything the 12MP... morewhat rubbish ! you cannot expect everyone to like 12mp 4:3 square photos .go compair it i real life instead of blaberring here.I am not saying that the photos on note7 are very bad but its not as punchy as my note5. Although i am planning on getting the note7 shortly but that does not mean i sud be happy with whatever it throws at me.
I wud have got the lg g5 or lg v10 for its excellent camera setup but iam also waiting for LGV20 launch as it is expected to come with another excellent 20mp camera and hopefully a f/1.7 like s7 or atleast f/1.8 apreture camera for lowlight conditions
[deleted post]You missed it so I'll repeat my comment from below TC.....
Why are you calling the GN7 brittle?
Phonebuffs mechanical drop tests (most accurate) show the GN5 shatters MORE than the GN7 on the very first drop. The GN7 survived 50 drops and still worked 100%.
As far as drop test durability goes, the GN7 ranked 3rd of all the phones they have tested... the GN5 was a distant 8th..... The GN7 scratches easier but the GN5 is the more brittle, less durable phone.
Note 7 drop test is below.
Note 5 drop test is below.
PARAG B, 30 Aug 2016dude i am talking abt 9mp reso however even in 12mp you loose details you are such a hypocrite... moreAs I have pointed out before at the S7 Edge page after frequently using the camera of my wife's S7E - the sensor is the best, sharpest, fastest focusing on a mobile device, ranked #1 by DXoMark Mobile.
And now it's on the Note7, and I got it for the excellent same camera and improved S Pen.
You are the only one complaining about megapixels.
PARAG B, 30 Aug 2016dude i am talking abt 9mp reso however even in 12mp you loose details you are such a hypocrite... moreWhat rubbish. Look at the 16MP and 12MP 100% crops in GSMarenas shootout. If anything the 12MP images look sharper than the 16MP. If detail was a problem GSMarena would have mentioned it. Even comparing 16MP to 9MP you won't notice any difference even at 100% on a computer screen or large print.
It doesn't matter which way you put it..... the GN7 camera IS an upgrade on the GN5.

PARAG B, 30 Aug 2016yup! only if you consider the Low light conditions.but
In Daytime Note5 wins handsdown :)Nope, wrong again.
GSMarena on stills daylight photography "Winner: Galaxy Note7. All three phones are equally good in taking daylight photos. The Galaxy Note7, however, offers the widest effective dynamic range in tough light conditions."
i.e., where you have bright and dark areas which is very common in daylight photography.
Bunyip22, 30 Aug 2016"i am upgrading not downgrading so why can i not expect a better camera on GN7"...
GSMARENA... moreyup! only if you consider the Low light conditions.but

Re the GN7 vs the GN5 camera.
The GSMarena photo quality comparison tool is very handy.
It doesn't matter where you look, good or low light or MP scaled down. The GN7 wins... in lower light it is a thumping.

whitedragon, 30 Aug 2016Megapixel aside for one second....
The photos I take on the Note 7 (IMX260 sensor) poo all ... moreDude i am directly compairing DAYTIME 9mp 16:9 photos and videos of GN7 which has f/1.7 apreture camera to 16mp 16:9 photos and videos of GN5 (not any other smartphone which you generalized) which has f/1.9 apreture camera
If you see closely s7 ,s7 edge,and Note7 photos and videos they loose some details which in turn makes GN5 photos and videos come on top ( In Daytime when most ppl prefer to take pics as it is very obvious that there is more light in daytime and one can expect good photo shoot out)
So for some people who mostly take pics in night time S7,S7 edge and Note7 is great but for many people like me they are just sacrificing more crisp photos of Daytime which we use to get with S6,S6 edge and Note5 and still shoot ok in lowlight if not that clearer like S7,S7 edge or Note7.
The "better low light" vs a little less 12mp 4:3 photos and video details in DAYTIME TRADE OFF is not so good IMO.
and trust me samsung cud have given another great camera to Note7 like i have mentioned in my earlier posts
