AnonD-531500, 16 Aug 2016Honor V8 has same specs and cost £370 .. http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1... moreI could see about 10 things the note 7 has that the honor V8 doesnt have, do you hate Samsung that much to call it "same specs" when the link you gave shows that its not?
AnonD-367917, 17 Aug 2016For me it was the audio specs page... And still waiting for clarity on which version was test... moreOn the mobile site when selecting the sections of the review there are two options at the end, one for each model. On the International version page at the bottom there is a test section and audio output is listed for it,but on the US version it is not a listed test. Looks like they neglected to test it.
LowBattery , 16 Aug 2016Me? For me it was the audio specs page...
And still waiting for clarity on which version was tested...

AnonD-335271, 16 Aug 2016In what world does it matter if the Iris Scanner is able to scan your eyes underwater? I am su... moreIf the water pressure is too much (on the screen) to register touch input, and fumbling, we drop the stylus,.. watching it 'sink away' as the phone vibrates that we have moved(with current) further from the location we took it out...
Desperate to inform someone of something obviously important (or view porn), we need another way to login to our phone, and rely on the iris scanner to login securely... only to realise that not being able to use the touchscreen negates the point....
I'm out! (Anyone else?)

Just Noticable Color Difference is where this screen feel from 'excellent' to 'very good', which does depend on the profile being run.
Whilst I do not doubt GSMArena did their research well; there is something off about the numbers between both review pages,.. suggesting that the auto light balancing might not have been entirely defeated for these reviews.(it now needs light shining on the back as well as the front to neutralise this feature somewhat/get 'auto brightness' to highest possible).
In real world usage I would take this screen hands down, due to how it is implemented!
Upgrade every year to a new Note, this year is no different.

Are you kidding me? 28 hour Note 5 , 23 hour Not... moreINgress protected speaker setup might require 'more power' to get to the same volume,..or might be louder on this phone... if things were volume matched....(the note7 was twice as loud on the volume measurements),.. this phone would outperform the Note5 for 'call duration' very likely...
To be fair 24hours of talktime would be enough to satisfy my needs, give or take (take actually sixteen hours from that number), between charge cycles in a heavy use scenario.
Real world usage is what matters...
People who extensively use their phones for calls should be on headsets or bluetooth, both of which would return this phone to better runtimes, with calls, than the Note5 (assuming good reception).
Too Cool ay!
Can you test the audio of the Snapdragon model? Your audio test seems to only reference the Eyonx model.
Worse battery life for talk time than Note 5. Are you kidding me? 28 hour Note 5 , 23 hour Note 7 = FAIL
Boiz, 16 Aug 2016Actualy i just book note 7 for my entire family , but after see the review, i woried and scare... moreDon worry,note 7 i think battery life will be ok,if not other people will complain about it already,and don compare note 5 to note 7,note 5 battery capacity isnt even close to note 7,so note 7 will be more power saving,if not,u can also resort to the screen res downgrade power saving mode
kakouille, 16 Aug 2016note 7 best display http://www.displaymate.com/Galaxy_Note7_ShootOut_1.htmAll things considered, probably yes, but look at the chart again, Note 5 (and S6 Edge+) is still being mentioned under "Excellent Accuracy", where Note 7 is mentioned under "Very Good Accuracy". I don't like it!
The price is toooooooo damn high....kills it!
Unless you desperately need the S Pen...if not, move on.
ithehappy, 16 Aug 2016Okay, all fine, but I don't understand the Display part! Why on earth would Samsung make the B... morenote 7 best display
AnonD-531500, 16 Aug 2016Honor V8 has same specs and cost £370 ..
http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1... moreOh no it doesnt. The Mali T880MP4 should be about 70% weaker than the T880MP12, the Exynos 8890 has some of the best cpu performance in single-thread and multi-thread applications on the Android World and well, the storage and ram on the Note 7 should still be made on a lower litography scheme and have higher power efficiency/read, writes and access performance. All that if combined with a Nexus phone would literally be a high-end laptop :p. Also the display is like the distance from North America to Antarctica in terms of superior quality. But, i guess whoever wants Touchwiz and really slow update and android iteration release, will be pleased with the speed for some time (Samsung phones get slower with time x-x, forcing ya to buy the next)!
Bang-for-buck, 16 Aug 2016Considering price & specs ZTE Axon 7 is the best choiceAll thinds considered (price, especially),the ZTE looks pretty good news,next to an ageing concept.My bet is on the Note though mainly to ,ZTE could up its game by launching with Cyanogen Mod rather than its own software.
Honor V8 has same specs and cost £370 ..
It is a matter of time Samsung gets surpassed by the Chinese firms.This phone is not a real phablet anymore,nor a business tool.Time will prove I am right.
this is the most complete phone yet. respect for samsung it maybe be better with 4000mah and stereo sound (saved for 2017 maybe)
i will wait till the price drop to 400€ (after 1year)
