Then why does it eat so much ram, CPU power and battery life when... moreIphone brand was stolen from cisco iphone and cisco filed a lawsuit againt apple in which apple had to come to terms with cisco about it so apple iphone is not original in brand name for a start.ios cpied android notification bar and named it notification center which doesn't have 1/3 if android's functionality.every company out there copied samsung note(workd's first true phablet) in size but even your original apple an microsoft! So they are not even original in form-factor.all companies out there has yet to come with an alternative to s-pen which in every designers mind was a thing from past but again samsung redesigned and re-introduced with original functionality and made it a truley big success and everybody jumped on the big screen phones wagon but none has the sammy's success.why i keep mentioning samsung is because it's the biggest contributor to android with it's successful products like s and note series.
Using an iris scanner is not copying of microsoft because microsoft didn't design and produce it but they only used someone elses product but samsung is designing and producing major components of their products so they are original.

people talking about samsung and remember how is making billions haters or Samsung? ugly design I dont know its beatiful for you a lumia? same design yes we are tired of rectangle phones lets ask for triangle or circle ones, more ram newer processor yes because 4gb is not enough for the apps on playstore that just need 1gb. or are you trying to install Battle field? or GTA V? or you want to play the far cry primal on your device. dont be haters probably you dont have the money to buy it and you are just saying you dont like it, or if you dont like it go and comment about how good is the device you like.
A very good phone but when come to software upgrades, that where Samsung fail badly, I don't even know when will I get android 7.0 update, some more is based in carriers, device variants and country. It will be running older android version in less than 2 months.
Can you surf the net and talk on the phone unlike the note 5 without having to use wifi? I miss that function. Its an headache to not have it to reference something.
I must say that I'm rather disappointed with the specs. No 4k mAh battery, no 6gb or ram and the same "old" CPU/GPU as in the S7. Notes for me were always about having the highest specs available and Samsung didn't deliver. I guess I might as well try a Chinese phone this time around.

Then why does it eat so much ram, CPU power and battery life when Windows/iOS can run smooth af with just 1 GB?
Anyway, Android is a poor copy of Windows's flat design language, now Samsung finally copied the iris scanner feature from the Lumia 950, and also copied the Glance Screen. (that clock/alerts/etc. that show up on the screen when the phone is in standby mode)
If you want the newest stuff, just stick with the originals and the innovative companies like Apple, Nokia, Microsoft.
My Nokia Lumia 925 is still far more original than this GN7 design, and still better looking than 90% of phones out there.
Big fan of Note from day one and having the first... But would prefer all metal body and replaceable battery...Don't trust glass back but beautiful looking phablet
Note 5 User, 03 Aug 2016Hi I just want to say that I´m planning to buy the note 7 I was just giving advice that ... moreMe too planning to upgrade to Note 7 after 8 months with my 64GB premium phone.
I am not worried about the sealed battery because I change phone within a year of less.
So charging it frequently via wireless fast charging is not a problem and it is the technology of the present. Don't want to stay in the past...
will the battery be impossible to change you say, if you send it to a phone shop after say 2 years?
It should have the SD 821 SoC, 6GB of ram and a 4000mah battery and should have launched later with 7.0
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip instead of the expected Snapdragon 823 or even the SD821, It means that it would perform just as well as but not better than the current Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge that was recently released.
For me, working for the last 15 years in the industry, things are changing. I mean. I use both high end phones like this and midle quality phones. Looking far from marketing campaings, people, al least many of them, will not pay 800Â€ for a phone with no "important" differences from phones of 350Â€. If you want a complete Android Experience you just have to buy a Nexus. A recent example that puts me on alert. My new Pioneer Car audio with Android Auto. They say it works with any Android Phone from 5.0... But...just plug different phones there, and there's always faliueres. You put a Nexus there and...."voilá"....everything works...smooth and fine. What I trying to say is that the real power of Android are Google "world" on the phones, an for that, nothing like a Nexus.... Maybe not far we are going to see a self made phone from Google with features the other manufactureres won't have. The time to decide betwen Tizen...or Android.....Maybe...
