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

Hot about considering also an iPad Pro?
I am excited to try the Gear VR headset that comes free with my Note 7.
Just curious if what I am saying against VR headset are true.
I pre order Note 7 to compensate my Note 3, in addition was considering an iPad Pro.
I bought my wife a 32GB S7 Edge at more than $1000 for her status symbol nothing more.

I have Note Edge with Vodafone and recently got Marshmallows v6.0 and before that had lollipop. Im still torn on should I get Note 7 or not though mostly just because for me it is S7 on steroids with pen. Need to move on as my Note Edge wont connect to any Bluetooth hi fi device, only PC or other phones and thats about it. Embarrassing really when mates at the time had far lesser phones which could do that. Wish Samsung would make say screen that is compatible with Spen which we could hook up to Note so that screen is used for writing etc as no matter how good their pen is screen is just to small to use to its full potential.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 08 Aug 2016I doubt the V10 can do 8 hours SOT, unless you're using extended battery.I never said the V10 is better. Its battery life is terrible (saved only by quick charge and swapping batteries). I would like the missing features to be in the Next Note, hopefully.

Clearly you didn't even try to read or understand the question they were asking...
They asked a question: "which would suit them better, for around the house use,. Watching movies etc."

If 1000nits is true the HDR video, and FHD, HD all become kind of AWESOME!

It increase the file size to 7 to 8 mb to each 12mp pictures, but it gives context to what you're shooting.
Like people hurrying up, and see how artificially they would set their smiles before the shot. Or just naturally occurring events. One thing though, they took out raw image outputs! But not worried about it.
That fast fire up and focus really works! Waterproof of the phone had me not worry recording our kids playing in the rain.
Low light photos is very much good. Dxomark Mobile had ranked the S7 Edge #1 as having the best performing overall still shots and video recording scores.
That same quality and a few more tricks with the interface being improved for better one-handed operations make it so compelling for me to getting the Note7.
Is it me or they did not mention ambilight sensor on back. Also brightness go up to 1000nits. Also reflection is the best. Take that you can set resolution of screen - you will got awesome battery endurance.

I love the software that sammy has.. something about changing the focus after the shot.. It looks like it is software defocus, but it is certainly clever.. must be some sort of dual shot trick that does a little bit like what HDR cameras do when they combine shots.
Does make me wonder how much the camera software mucks about with our photos prior to 'we' the user actually getting them.
Waterproofness does it for me..
And a few of the cool new spen features (like language translate etc)
Being on a note edge and without lollipop I cannot even write straight to screen upon pulling out the Spen. Samsung suck for purposefully delaying my region (one of the first that got the note edge) from getting the update. Note 4s have it as of a week ago. Flagship customers who paid 20% more for a plastic backed screen and 'gorilla glass 3'? Stuff you says samsung.
- we will delay you getting the update knowing you are the kind of customers with money that will buy an upgrade!
Ever since I installed marshmallow- half the edge features (eg camera buttons on the edge when taking photos) have gone.
I don't like samsungs tactics,.. but I do like samsungs phones.
Hmmmm. I really hope the amp section in the Note 7 is quality . I have an Exynos variant on its way.. Soo looking forward to seeing some benchmarks on audio quality.
And, yeah.. that camera.
Sony burned me a few years ago on a TX5 that was factory recalled (laminate peeling), so my 'daily shooter' (waterproof/dropproof/freezeproof etc) went into the shop. And they lost it.
I have chased it down for years. I have spent many many hours on the phone and via email.
The best the bastards have offered me is half off a new product. I explained they are nuts if they think I would give them more money after how they had treated me....
So this Note 7 will be my new 'daily snapper'. Soooo excited!

You rule for trying this out. (Again, +1)

The Note 3's S Pen needed more pressure to create wider or bold lines, while the Note7's has way more range and I don't have to exert so much pressure to get bolder lines.
Funny thing is, I can just buy a separate Note7 S Pen to get better results! Haha, but I want that F/1.7 camera.
