It needs to bring back removable battery. There's no way I'm paying $700 for a device with less USEFUL features than my Note 4.
Equinox Hydroid, 26 Jun 2016Note 5 will be killed by this Note 7or they just don't have number written on them
Meanwhile, in between the lackluster Android-phones that the Android-camp release every three minutes, us Windows-users are getting better and better phones every three days with insider builds.

I feel exactly the same way about the current stagnant state of the smartphone industry, it's beginning to lose its magic just like tablets already have. Now it's just one lackluster release after another, while previous models are still more than capable of handling any and all mobile tasks, which is why I'm reluctant to upgrade any time soon unless the market produces something new and extraordinary to give it some spark again.
Bilal, 27 Jun 2016Seriously Note series was the poineer of everything but now it is following S series. 12mp cam... moreTo BILAL:
Both the S series and Note series are respectful pioneers in their own right. I won't elaborate on it too much but a fine example was the S5 being the first Samsung Galaxy smartphone to feature a heart rate sensor, fingerprint scanner, 16MP camera, isocell camera sensor, phase detection auto-focus, 4K video recording and Ingressed Protection....to list a few. The Note 4 followed the S5 with all the aforementioned except the phase detection and IP67. So don't say the Note has always been a pioneer because if that was the case the Note 3 would have had the stuff the S5 pioneered...don't forget the S4 had 13MP and so does the Note 3. It took the S5 to have a higher Megapixel among many other features which the Note 4 borrowed.
Don't forget the S series is the flagship for the regular sized Galaxy smartphones while the Note is the flagship for the Galaxy phablets. They both stand their ground and they both show their dominance.
Going from the Note 16mp camera over to the S7 edge i can confirm that the 12MP shooter outperforms the old Note sensor in just about every sense.
Love the low light capabilities, colour accuracy, sharpness. its pretty much the best sensor available on a mobile currently. Give it a try before moaning

Seriously Note series was the poineer of everything but now it is following S series. 12mp camera...not good

But thats also only one note tha5 has been like that. And even then it still definitely was the better choice and stood on its own.
This year you don't even know what it will be like.
And its pretty ridiculous all the comments saying its the exact same as the s7 or that the note is now all the same one so far there has only been one similar one

Anonymous, 27 Jun 2016Buy a rugged case which will cover the premium glass. Good one.If you really want maximum protection from any risk, yeah go buy a rugged case, if you want protect your phone but you wanna keep your phone beauty, buy a clear case :)
I am hoping for a 256 GB storage option. But, how much will that cost :/
wow once note series had its own image , own style but Samsung has just decided to make just s7 edge (just rumours of edge screen , of course it will be little bigger in size) with s pen , how lame (maybe they can do something by improving speakers)
GE, 26 Jun 2016I don't know why but I sort of lost interest in upgrading my phones (note 3 and iPhone 5s) .. ... moreBuy a premuim phone today, get screwed 2 or more years later on updates because, hey, buy a new phone.
A 4K display would future proof for VR, but would take a huge toll on screen frame rates and battery life, as well as risk CPU overheating. VR is slowly being adopted, but it is in no way yet so widespread that people are demanding 4K displays or will likely do so in the next 2-3 years...but just about everyone wants more battery life, fast refresh rates and CPUs that don't throttle down after the the handset gets a bit too warm for comfort. Samsung made the right choice.
