aaaa222, 11 Aug 2016Im dissapointed with the note 7 i was thinking it will come with 6 GB ram . I better go for note 5 So you're disappointed in the Note 7 because it doesn't have 6GB RAM, but - you'd rather go back to the Note 5 which is older technology in every way and also has 4GB RAM?
Anyone else understand the logic?
whitedragon, 10 Aug 2016I thought you had VR headset with your Note 5..Yep, he/she sure did back in the Note 5 thread. What's up with that? Is there a new upgraded VR for the Note 7?
q1, 10 Aug 2016What about infrared, the remote control?! Does it have it?
Yet the answer is no, but it could change in the future. Instead, you could buy some kind of IR blaster that works with USB OTG, or just buy an Galaxy Tab S with IR
The only IR blaster is on the camera
whitedragon, 11 Aug 2016Not sure what you are suggesting here..
I think you are trying to infer that iDevices copy ot... moreHere are some interesting section profile design comparisons of the S6 Edge, Note.5, S7 Edge, and Note7.
Samsung reduced the Note7 to have a .5mm subtle curved edges. S7 Edge has 1mm radius. According to video demonstrations, Samsung made some apps like the camera function to prevent touches on the curved area to trigger the interface. Neat.

chichu, 11 Aug 2016somebody tell me,what is the effect to note 5 because of note 7 arrival?????quickly reply There is no effect.

I think you are trying to infer that iDevices copy other brands and are simply reactive to other big companies with their design ethos?
This suggests you don't really know what you are talking about,.. too busy hating 'other "Premium" phones' to understand what they are doing / or actually listen to forum commenters who share positive, useful information.
As an example, Samsung didn't announce that per Display Mates recommendations for how to implement phone screen technology 'well'; they have included dual camera sampling setup that not only looks at the light landing on the phone, for adjusting screen brightness, but also the rear camera looks at the light that the user is looking at 'beyond their phone'.
In fact there is so much technology in the NEW Note 7 (far and beyond the S7) that didn't make press briefs. Doesn't mean it isn't there.
What the companies have learned is not to market to the technophiles. They are a small part of the customer base.
Instead market to the masses. Make the phone appear easy to use, whilst building in technology that improves the user experience.
This is where a knock off phone relying on spec sheet numbers will never truly compare.
It will to a technologist. But they might eschew a range of other products that truly would have given a superlative experience .. they will never know,.. and perhaps do not want the buyers remorse that an education might offer them.
To be fair a lot of this stuff is such small incremental improvements, that, truth be told,.. we could all use flagship phones from a couple of years ago, and in most instances we wouldn't REALLY be missing much.
Just depends on whether the technology advance is relevant to us.
We can take a reductionist approach and say the Note 7 is for S-pen users, and there isn't anything bettering an S7, but this isn't true, nor is it fair to the replacement model, being the Note 5.. over which it has a few significant improvements.
Getting back to PREMIUM PHONE as you put it..
If you are referring to the company I think you are; they have been mastering lower reflectance (and other 'non spec sheet numbers') for a long time now.
But they don't advertise it.
If we give credit to a poster here having read a report from the display mate website on the new Note 7, are we being serious to suggest that DisplayMate haven't look at competitors screens? "Just because me, as a fanboy, isn't interested in hearing about it doesn't mean it doesn't exist."
Typical of the human condition. You know,. "Earth being flat"; as an example.

aaaa222, 11 Aug 2016Im dissapointed with the note 7 i was thinking it will come with 6 GB ram . I better go for note 5 The only thing the Note.5 is good for now is it's 30% off from original price. No memory expansion. No water-resistance. No better camera. No bigger battery. No iris scanner. No better S Pen. No USB Type-C.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2016tnx again for answer. i don t like handle big phones and tablet at outdoor then if i buy a gal... moreFood for thought and 'weighing things up'....
With regards to getting the right device;
I am not sure how much your budget is for technology. I usually choose the best available parts (factors for 'best', for me is RELIABILITY pretty much first and foremost), if I spend top dollar I expect it to last.
iPads to me are very expensive.. they also have no moving parts, are exceptionally well built, designed to last, and, I believe, offer better than most with regards to value for money.
I had purchased a Pro, and knowing that the new Pros (after mine) were going to be the right size for the girlfriend,.. we waited for release.
I nearly fell off my chair at the pricing (realising I wasn't going to recommend one to her),.. we managed to find an enthusiast who was 'upgrading' and grabbed their old iPad Air2 for around half the 'new' cost. It will hold exceptional resale value, and is without a doubt one of the best tech purchases she has ever had. Certainly suits our needs. (Now an iPad family)
I had to get her a camera, and she wanted one for landscape use. I grabbed her an 'old' Canon Powershot for about the cost of a second hand Ps4 game. She has 20x zoom, fast and relatively high quality glass (lens), and optical stabilisation. With a tripod she takes magnificent shots of the moon.
Both of these purchases are right for her.
This is the only tech she has bought for a few years (other than her HTC phone, now around four years old).
Why this rant?
Sometimes second hand stuff can do for us wonders....
Even if you have the money to spend (my girlfriend did, but the quad speaker setup and incremental updates on the new iPad wasn't worth twice the cost of the iPad we got her, for her... )
I come from a photography background...
I have owned as many digital cameras as most of our readerbase here have owned phones. Probably a lot more. Having taken hundreds of thousands of digital photos and worked in 'high street' photography stores, my opinion with regards to cameras might be worth something.. and is given here for free. (Keep that in mind anyone who wants to 'take me down a peg')
Three things are important when choosing a camera. (After figuring out our needs, we can choose the right parts based on 'what is right for us'; shooting children is different to capturing landscapes, as an example)
Lens is very important. Sensor is somewhat important,.. software is somewhat important.
Garbage in, garbage out... so; lets start with the lens.
Wide angle / landscape shots are often the easiest to capture with regards to light. (Generally during the day, and not needing a fast shutter to 'prevent blur').. They are also quite a tricky lens to implement well. Most phones have, by camera standards, a fairly wide field of view.
The new Note has some Lens kit, official, from Samsung. I believe this is going to net you superior sharpness than a few extra megapixel at the sensor stage. If you are half serious about photography, a phone camera is the wrong camera.. but I always argue that the camera on a person is the camera that will get the shot.
The Note 7 is one of the best snappers on the market right now, for phone cameras.
Phone cameras can generally be beaten by cheap actual cameras. And a second hand digital cameras, with a little hunting, will get you something that phone cameras will not achieve for a few years yet.
Megapixels is one of the least important metrics when choosing a camera. (It wasn't always, but given that National Geographic accepts a 6Mp shot for a full page print,.. and that the average user never displays photos on a screen beyond 2Mp or prints beyond 4x6",.. lets not worry about megapixel. Yes you could 'crop' a 20Mp shot in half and still have 10Mp, so yes, 1/4 of a 20megapixel shot would still be generally fairly sharp: ASSUMING THE LENS AND OTHER FACTORS KEEP A NICE PHOTO,
Any actual zoom will beat out that 20Mp shot (hands down).
The Samsung Note 7 Lens kit would make it the vastly better shooter in every situation over just about every other phone camera either previous or yet to be announced for quite a while.
It might prove a good investment.
Probably have very good resale value if the sellout on preorders for the Note7 is anything to go by.
The best thing?
It is waterproof... this camera can go EVERYWHERE and always be ready for the shot.
The slight distortion on the 'landscape lens' is only for 'up close', and can generally be corrected in software if you are serious about your shots.
I would make the combo; Note 7 + lens kit, my go to recommendation. (One product to 'rule them all' -=cough=- pokemon-=cough=-)(see bloody pokemon are everywhere)
The Notes camera, albeit 12Mp is an excellent sensor. I would take smaller Mp numbers on a quality sensor everyday. It will take better shots.
I won't argue with your past results 'pixel peeping' on super high res photos... but the real world application is simply a 2x zoom to equivalent picture.. (all things being equal; which the 23mp Sony sensors not optically stabilised are not)
I love Sony Sensors. I use a six year old Sony Nex system as my 'best' camera presently.
But not for the megapixels.
;-) (gotta go, serving breakfast to my daughter who is late for school, my bad!)

q1, 10 Aug 2016What about infrared, the remote control?! Does it have it? No. Nobody cares about that.

Its to be expected, wonder what tech, but such deep blacks and low reflection wont have, so I wonder if they will play old card - small battery in big body - or they will bring something, they should. Also in camera matters.
whitedragon, 10 Aug 2016Cheers (buddy) for asking.... Ummm,.. I would have to know your usage...(needs) The ipad... moretnx again for answer. i don t like handle big phones and tablet at outdoor then if i buy a galaxy note 7 or ipad i will use it just at home . for outdoor i want good photography performance . i love s7 but when i zoom on pictures that taked with its 12 mp camera i can see oil-canvas effects that i hate it and for landscape pictures it can t focus on far places or objects but xperia x pictures is better and its design is better than s7 but now i think about new nexus devices too . htc nexus 5p looks great . audio output is not important. i have ps4 and it is better to go for xperia but updates in nexus devices bold them in my brain . if i have ipad pro and nexus device i will be always up to date . then i wait for new nexus 5p. i will chose between nexus or xperia . tonight i will purchase my ipad first . tnx a lot
