The only time i can notice the difference on my GN3 and GN4 is for really small font and the difference is minute.
Its really only an advantage for VR. I will probably run the Note 7 at 1080p for better battery life and performance.

The phone and contraption is heavy on the head that it strains your neck after all the rotations you do. It's grainy in quality. It's useless for people with no perfect vision.
There's a reason why there are so many warnings and disclaimers Samsung has put before you use it. They even warn you not to use it for more than half an hour.
The battery saving features to lower screen resolution to 720p and 1080p is a big deal to me. People complaining QHD kills too much battery can shut up now. The gif maker feature and ability to leave notes on the screen almost like a Post-It reminder is a nice touch.
Erica Griffin on YouTube said it is more symmetrical than her S7 edge. Comfortable to hold. But the main reason why I want it? VR. Still in the early days but something to relax to and escape from the harsh realities in life. Netflix VR is pretty awesome. Imagine how mature VR gets in 3-4 years?
Apple iPhone users still years behind VR with their 750p and 1080p screens. Samsung can go 4K next year and then have the feature to lower resolution. My only complaint is the glass back but I will just put a black carbon fiber dbrand skin on it.
George Bailey, 15 Aug 2016Where is Note 6 ? they skipped it to match the model with the S series like S7 & Note 7, S8 & Note 8,,,,,,etc.
samsung design is same as original samsung galaxy s but people say sony phones are same .
samsung is great and and hitech company but sony is great too and apple i love all of them but please don't talk about chinnesse devices like huawei and xiaomi and others.
whitedragon, 15 Aug 20164k vs 2.5k samsung... Samsung use a 'diamond array' for pixel structure. DisplayMate review ... morePretty sure what you meant was Samsung's Diamond PenTile matrix. And no, it's actually less sharp than panels with RGB pixels. Unless it's displaying pure green, in which case it would be at the same degree of sharpness as RGB displays.
The Caveman, 15 Aug 2016Yep, looks like it. No morse code receiver or built-in landing platform for carrier pigeons ei... moreI literally laughed out loud at your comment. Your username checks out too. Well done!
George Bailey, 15 Aug 2016Where is Note 6 ? They skipped the number #6 to make the Note series with the S line. But if you want, you can make the Note Edge the real Note5 and the Note5 as the Note6. Samsung comes up with so many variants. There is even the S6 edge+ which S7 edge and Note7 took design cues from that can count as a Note minus S-Pen.
I didn't realize Note7 has the ability to lower resolution to 720p and 1080p. That will be a godsend to people who want to save more battery life. And helps with future 4K phones if it has this feature too. Samsung hit a grand slam with this one. Shut up and take my money already, Samsung!
Xperia4k, 15 Aug 2016now, everyone are going crazy about the super HD quality of this guy, but when sony launched a... moreNote7 is only Quad HD, not Ultra HD.
It isn't just about the resolution but the quality of the display. DisplayMate said Note7 has the best display ever on a smartphone. Sony at whatever resolution have never been tops with the quality of their displays.
This is the best smartphone of 2016. Don't let Samsung haters deny you from the best because of their feelings for other brands. The only "7" of 2016 to upgrade to. Go for broke with this one. All-in.
Ed, 15 Aug 2016I have note 5. I've been waiting eagerly for Note 7 and when it arrived I saw no major updates... moreA lot of the 'upgrades' are quite subtle.
Curious; what software benefits from 6Gb of ram?
I ask this question often, and whilst I understand a developer might want that feature for running unoptimised code and some crazy tech stuff (generally from a desk, whilst phone is on wall power at 'max speed',..),.. I cannot think of a single consumer application.
Most large memory access stuff would be better off on a desktop via remote access. (And the RAM needed for that is minimal) so wicked large excel spreadsheets aside (desktop use), what can a phone do / how is a phone improved by this much RAM?
Really just gives Apple users bragging rights about how unoptimised android apps must be!
With regards battery technologies.. not all batteries are created equally. A lot of Chinese phones batteries', even at a higher mAh spec sheet number, might not yield any actual extra runtime.
(This has been my experience as a battery purchaser for a few decades- not all cells are created equal!)
I have note 5. I've been waiting eagerly for Note 7 and when it arrived I saw no major updates. Mainly cosmetics. I'd wait for Note 8 hoping to see a major overhaul.
I was hoping to see at least a 6GB ram with a 4000 mhps.
whitedragon, 15 Aug 2016Battery life on your device would suffer greatly vs using fm radio....
I used to love insta... moreYeah true internet radio consumes more phone battery juice, but I use Chromecast Audio, so no worry.
I am so happy that there is unlimited fast LTE data subscription with strong network signal coverage everywhere here, internet radio is not a problem, likewise cloud storage.
That is why I prefer to use two SIM cards rather than expansion memory.
Tcool, 15 Aug 2016I use TuneIn radio app with my unlimited LTE subscription. There is network coverage everywhere.Battery life on your device would suffer greatly vs using fm radio....
I used to love installing speaker wire in the wall cavities of a house being built, with no power on site, using the fm radio through loudspeaker on the tradesmen Nokia tough phones (5120, 5140 etc)..
Not everyone has unlimited LTE,.. in fact most people I know would have a few GBs per month. In my country data costs a truckload. To be fair, we get tech rollouts usually ahead of the US.. a few people have 'prepaid unlimited on 3g' (a limited time plan offered by one of the carriers),.. in fact the carriers like to offer very little data with these premium phones, hoping that users 'accidentally' go over.
Many 'news' investigation type shows bring light to the fact.
Glad you are covered.
The Note 7 is an internationally sold phone. Globally, unlimited data connections, would be the exception, not the rule.
