On first thought, I thought you were referring to Samsung Electronics' recently introduced UFS removable memory cards. Maybe I did not specify it enough on my comment and was thinking you were heading to a UFS card discussion. However, it was evident on my comment I was heading right through it just without me appending the word 'card' thereafter 'UFS'.
In case you are at a lost on what I am talking about, here card: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_introduces_worlds_first_ufs_card_lineup-blog-19257.php

By the end of the 'reader' link, one could notice even the author somehow wished Samsung to integrate the slot/socket design into the then-upcoming Galaxy Note7 to show 'industry partners', probably, how it's done yo!
AnBruh, 03 Aug 2016You're getting 64GB right out of the box and external memory support too, now tell me does Cra... moreYour missing one thing. Internal UFS memory is considerably faster than any SD card and that has real world implications. I have apps that crawl when the data they are accessing is on an SD card and slow the whole phone down. On internal storage they run like a dream. If the likes of Huawei, Apple, ZTE, Asus and LeeCo can manage 128 gb storage options why not Samsung?

It's certainly a worthy upgrade. Maybe not from the S7 Edge, but that phone is only a few months old, this isn't supposed to be it's successor.
I'll still need to try it myself before I decide to buy, but based on all I've seen, that's just a formality. It'll be in my pocket before long.

Why they have remove IR blaster?
Why No radio?
Its actually a company policy that they don't want to give all goodies in a single phone that will affect its other models sale. They are manufacturing phone for sale and not for you to complete your all requirements in a single piece despite the fact that technology is available to make all in one device. Even the Note7 designed is not much changed from Samsung theme. There are a lot of beautiful and modern design available on the net.
I am not happy with Note 7 specs and design.
Most people here fail to realize that phone manufactures have to consider quite a number of issues while designing a smartphone. for example:
* bigger battery = thicker device (which is a minus for a phablet)
* efficiency > capacity
* optimization = functionality
* durable materials
* design and etc
and the last but not least, MARKETING & STRATEGY!
Lets say, for instance, they put an IR blaster, 4200mah battery, 6GB ram, 16mp camera, 128GB optional storage, expandable storage and a removable battery. This what you will get:
* A BIG, THICK and HEAVY device with a BIG, THICK and HEAVY PRICE TAG!
The worst part is that people will expect its successor or another device to have better battery, screen, camera, optimization , maybe slim and presentable or beautiful device.
I believe the spec era/war is dying out, especially in smartphones. What we now need is innovation.
There are millions of people who own a high-end phablet and about 100/1000000 of them are busy complaining. In other words, its up to the person whose buying it and why they buying it.
Finally a worth it upgrade from my galaxy s3.can't w8 to own 1 note7...😊😊😊
Note 2 after i m very impressed of note 7, its really good and superb

Of Course, comparing this to the iPhone offerings would certainly be a hell of a joke! However, as an honest Samsung fan I would say, that this, is not a worthy upgrade. NOT AT ALL!, especially if you currently own a Galaxy S7-edge, or even a note 5 on that matter... Iris scanner is just an additional layer of security that can easily, and simply be
ignored at this very moment, if your only main concern really, is security. And HDR content these days,
is still on its infancy and developmental stage; and something, that you really cannot use, right out-of-the-box.
I simply am quite disappointed in this release of the note, having only small iterations...,
just akin to the iPhones. if they have just opted to put on either the SD821 or the Exynos 8893 on-board;
coupled with 6GB of DDR4; perhaps, UFS 3.0 if it is already be available; a very loud and great sounding stereo speakers just like the Idle 4S; and a 4000mAh battery, regardless of the UFS1.0 storage technology; this, could have been a very worthy upgrade! Not unless of course; you have all the moneys in the world to procure, or; you currently don't own a smartphone, and want to buy one.
But again to reiterate my point; as a big, if not one of the biggest Samsung fan allover the world, if you really want to upgrade just and only just, for the sake of having the latest and the greatest all-the-time, then by-all-means, upgrade! But, if what you want is to somehow, feel the utmost worthiness of the upgrade, and to possibly experience the very best upgrade of your techie-life, wait for the weight, of the Galaxy, S8!
I fervently hope, that Samsung would be able to read this heartfelt comment of mineÂ…, because I deeply, and sincerely love this company. I really doÂ… from their very humble beginnings, and to their utmost evolvement up to this very day, where they are nowÂ… this truly is a concern, and for certain, not criticism.

Disappointed for the 3rd time. Will hold on to my Note 3 for yet another year.
Note 6 32GB?? well im from India and i'm using 64GB Note 5 since March of this year..!!
By just making the battery a 4000mAh unit, adding the RAM count to 6GB (since there's no other phone is ever intended to be able to multitask like the Note) and bringing back the IR BLASTER for the much needed and much missed functionality, convenience and control, this could've been the most worthy upgrade to the Note series. But they didn't do it, Samsung didn't so it. So they have to pay for it. People should make them pay for it.
