Oh, wow... I can get mine by tomorrow as exclusive for higher plan subscribers. Problem is, it only comes in only in platinum gold - I want the black for subtle purpose. There is no gold for US users, and in turn my region does not offer the coral blue.
What a dilemma. I had already imagined carrying the black. Researching cases had always been based on black. Black will match even my laptop, Note 3, or even the upcoming Zerolemon 8500mAh battery with integrated black TPU...
So, is it time for a change? I mean my wife's S7 Edge is platinum gold - I don't hate it.

Can someone confirm that USB 3.1 is used? I do not find any official sorce for that. I need to have speeds of USB 3.0 or faster in HOST mode.

I would like to see Samsung create a quality smaller phone (an iPhone SE type version).
Samsung's mobile phone in your note which gives an infrared port, which is not lacking in Note 7 can frustrate consumers

Unless you work on a construction site or are really clumsy, get over it man.
whitedragon, 17 Aug 2016Yeah, watching the Corning advertorials for Gorilla Glass drops, they all thand perfectly flat... moreMy friend's Note 4 (with Spigen credit card case) fell front upper corner first - the surest way to get the phone's only glass part get wreaked. He even had a sheet of protective glass on. I'm not making this up (for people doubting).
Now there's another 100% of glass to protect! It's annoying to also think the curved glass contribute to the likelihood of a breakage. This is why I'm considering Ghosteck's aluminium perimeter frame, front (clear acrylic?) protective panel fused, it's the easiest disassemble, and yet it's water-resistant. The back part's frame has a rubberized perimeter. Normally i like an open front panel for the S Pen direct input, deep perimeter frame against drops, but now the curving glass needs protecting.
OtterBox Defender with that extra clip panel is something to consider too.

I am careful with these fragile tech from... moreYeah, watching the Corning advertorials for Gorilla Glass drops, they all thand perfectly flat; distributing thenforce of the impact equally over the largest surface. Even the real world usage where they show a lady dropping her phone from high... has it flip, and flip, and.... land perfectly flat!
An actual 'non ideal' impact isn't going to survive four out of five drops.
Cases needed unless it is a desk/briefcase/desk phone..
I had always wanted a Zagg for my HTC TouchPro2, but at the time they were iPhones only...
The UAG cases look designed to do some pretty clever force distribution...
Based on your friends case/ story, I realise I have been pretty fortunate with my Note Edge drops.
I have a lifetime type screen protector that probably needs replacing; if only they hadn't packed up their kiosk and left,,,,
I just read the review and almost everything is awesome, except for one thing: Battery life endurance rating. If you compare that test between the note 4, note 5, and note 7, you're going to see a decrease in battery life. Maybe i'm wrong, but it's supposed to be better on note 7, if you compare it to the previous notes...
Really Samsung, no fm radio... After all your progress with the s7
Does whatsapp, message & calls notifications appears on the gear fit2. Can someone help. Thanks
kerginaldo, 16 Aug 2016Why not removable battery? In 12/18 months we need send the device to change the batt. Besides... moreit's not mandatory to change the battery and if u don't over push it it'll last more than 2 years, that's when u start thinking of buying a new one ;)
