bkedersha, 15 Aug 2016I would have preferred 6 GB of RAM and the 821 Chip. I think Samsung may have a rude awakenin... morePerhaps but remember when the first NOTE and the second NOTE came into the market lots of people were laughing about the screen size and stylus ! From the start Samsung consider the Note as a biz phone and so far the only phone on the market that has a stylus that really works well . It will takes quiet a while for other phone makers to get to the same level in stylus performance therefore Samsung will not have any competition in that regard .
Not bad but Exynos 8890 Octa version is better.
TouchWiz UI isn't properly optimized for Snapdragon processors, it works way more smoothly on Exynos processors.
4GB of RAM is great for this phone I know allot of people want more but I have done some research and dug up this info about Android and RAM usage.
Android performs better under more RAM usage than less usage so all those process killing apps do more harm than good. By harm I mean you will have less battery life than if you left it alone and let Android handle the RAM as it will do a better job than you will. My battery life on my Note 5 is really good since I got rid of those app killing apps.
One other thing don't fully deplete a Lithium battery pack to 0% that's bad for it as Lithium batteries don't have a memory like Ni-Cad's do. You can train a Lithium battery pack by depleting it to around 5% then charge it while turning the phone off and let it charge till full or keep it on but don't use it till fully charged.
My thoughts for this phone are that it will be an amazing phone an miles ahead of the Note 5 plus the battery pack that's in it is great. No it don't need a 4,000MaH battery pack why since the Note 5 Samsung has been using Lithium-Polymer batteries and those are better than the Lithium-Ion batteries that are in the Galaxy S line. THe Note 4 had 3,220MaH Lithium-Ion battery pack and the Note 5 has a 3,000MaH Lithium-Polymer battery pack and the Note 5 has better battery life despite having a lower MaH battery pack than the Note 4 so it don't need more than what it has. You can compare the Note 7 to the S7 Edge and you will see that the Note 7 will have better battery life than the S7 Edge easy.
Can't wait to get this phone love that the SD card slot was revived not that I really need it as I have a Dash Micro SD card adapter that fits into a Micro USB port and is really small and don't get in the way. I definitely recommend this phone hands down.
It has qhd display, not 4k. Qhd is 2560*1440 4k is 4096*2160, that's a huge difference.
Padmasana, 16 Aug 2016Trying to find common ground with the other users who complain that 4GB RAM is not enough. 3GB... moreMy thoughts exactly, more is not always better. It will drain the battery in no time
Silver Note 7 comes in tomorrow from AT&T. Can't wait! Gonna be a big upgrade from my S5!

I understand how the OS ditches idle apps when need to keep a healthy dose of free ram available, my point is a phone like the OnePlus 3, which has 6gb of ram, won't have to be doing that as aggressively under heavy use. Loading and unloading data to ram requires power, less back and forth equals less power consumption.
Currently, it is hard to load over 4gb on the OnePlus 3, with all social apps active, it is possible, as they are the worst. However like a said, when Nougat comes out i am ready to bet it will be much easier.
Time will tell, hopefully you are right and i am wrong.

No phone is using 6GB presently.
Android uses a base working set and then caches in programs used by regular programs to fill up to around 1.8GB.
Even a note 4 has over 1GB of 'free' ram.
4GB is plenty future proof.
SAMSUNG uses fast RAM and storage -both offset loading times-the only thing 'more ram' can help with.
Not all ram is created equal or implemented well
I agree on old touchwiz being 'laggy'.
New method shouldn't be...

I am glad you enjoy your Samsung product so much, you seem very passionate about it. However, i was answering somebody else's question about this phone, and my point is as valid despite your passion for this companies product line.
Let's agree to disagree and not wish each other harm or trips to Pluto.

Never content, never satisfied and always have something negative to say. After major overhaul of Touchwiz with positive feedbacks from users using the newest Galaxy line you have tiny balls to say that Touchwiz is unstable. BTW is GraceUX now not Touchwiz. Maybe purchasing the Galaxy note5 or note7 might help in cooling down your negativity or don't buy from Samsung ever again. And you should be in the Note 4 section complaining not here.
