I saw leaked photos of the Sony PS4 slim which seemed tempting because been interested in getting back into video games. But I said nah, let me get the Note7 first! The PS4 can't download from torrent apps and I like the Gear VR portability and price. PS4 can wait. Need Note7 now.
VR seems like a gimmicky but this is how I rank gadget importance for me -
Laptop/Desktop/Notebook/2 in 1 hybrids
Portable media player
VR is in the middle of being practical and gimmicky. I never found tablets practical. Never got into the iPad craze. A giant iPod touch. Apple Watch is a big waste of money. VR is something that can enhance my media viewing experience.
I can point at every flaw of the Note7. It has been said repeatedly here like high price, scratch prone GG5, average speaker, lower battery life than S7 edge, non removable, no FM, yadda yadda. Like a broken record already. But it is just too good for me to pass up even with its flaws. I need my 64gb internal, micro-sd slot, and Gear VR. I need the free goodies like a free 256gb micro-sd card or maybe free Samsung TV down the road.
I will be feasting on Pirate Bay, YIFY movie using my Flud app. Will downloading on YouTube, DailyMotion, and adult sites using TubeMate app. I need high storage period to transfer it all to my external hard drive. Then we also have a great design, camera, still pretty solid battery life, and many more features to boot. When my relatives drive me to Vegas in November, I will be sitting at the back using Gear VR to watch my movies and TV shows that I downloaded. Just wished the 128gb/6gb RAM/Exynos was optional for the U.S.
We can fault it but it is just too good to pass up no matter if the iPhone 7, HTC Nexus devices, and PS4 slim get released. Stop hesitating over superficial reasons or being a tightwad. This smartphone is the best of the best right now until the S8 edge and Note8 get released with 4K display. The rest of the competition are playing catch up with VR and other phones aren't quite as feature-packed or excel in the most important areas like the S7e/Note7 do no matter if they are cheaper.
@ Night Wolf @, 22 Aug 2016for google map you need data/internet,, only if you have some other GPS applications that doe... moreActually, you could download offline map now on google map so you can used it offline
G chand, 22 Aug 2016Gold and Blue is the best i have Gold, Gold looks more platinum than Blue Hows is silver color ???
The screen is insanely much more bright! The screen is suppose to go up as much as 1000 nits. I love how more crisp the scenes are with the HDR totally deep blacks.
Iris scanner is fast enough, although since I'm connected to a trusted Bluetooth device all the time, I use Google Smart Lock to just swipe to open. If disconnected, the Note7 automatically locks.
Blue light filter has been around since the 2013 Note 8 labeled as reader mode. I don't know why it's a big deal now that Apple has implemented it. Anyway, it works great.
Always Screen On idea is not something I appreciate as it still drains battery, but I will turn it on for my side bed clock while it is plugged in.
I just turned off the Edge panels entirely, and replaced it with SideSwipe as a better way of launching shortcuts - it can also have contacts at the ready. You can have 6 by 7 grid total - maximum 42 shortcuts, and you can customize a number of different sets of shortcuts, triggered at different hotspots.
Note7 is turning out great. More on how the S Pen is performing.
Got a warranty receipt, return N7 space between glass and frame, particles near edges. It's hush up deliver date syndrome. Forget wait nxt batch 4th qtr.

First the return of the glass back and the hybrid dual SIM, now the return of the S-pen silo issue. What could be next? It is really following the footsteps of the best ever Note 5. LOL!
Ur people so lucky because ur people have note 7..me not yet have it(with sad face)

I am in RSA , I have never heard of Galaxy Note 6 but now there is 7, What am I missing, what happened? I only know Note 5.

I finally got this beautiful tool. First thing I did was to turn the resolution to 720p, and I absolutely could not easily tell between this lowest setting to FHD Amor 1440p. If it saves battery and prolongs usage, it's not a big deal.
Ah, this thing is a good step up to what I'm used to. Now this was what the Note.5 was suppose to be! I waited a year for this to upgrade from the Note 3. Man, I certainly appreciate that memory expansion being back.
Pretty excited in getting the necessary accessories. I got a free backpack charger that will barely equivalent 50% of actual charge of the battery. There's a free official clear back cover, and I'd really need something more protective.
Currently fully charging this baby up too test the battery's stamina. Camera is expected too be as good as the wife's S7 Edge. Fast focusing and fast launch.
More in the following posts.
[deleted post]Just like memory expansion is useless for you?
uts already released in the middle east!!!! and im using it... its amazing!!!! camera is good. but i feel the battery life is not what i expected tho...
