AnonD-566222, 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.

Im dissapointed with the note 7 i was thinking it will come with 6 GB ram . I better go for note 5
q1, 10 Aug 2016What about infrared, the remote control?! Does it have it? No. Nobody cares about that.
AnonD-367917, 10 Aug 2016Brightness 1000nits,,.. that was my concern for dropping down to FHD or HD, the inevitable bri... moreWell samsung is first, but we heard rumors about that Premium phone that will come with hdr screen and about 1300nits. 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.
AnonD-367917, 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.
AnonD-367917, 10 Aug 2016I know right!?// Brand X can make a cup of coffee in the morning. And hug you to sleep at ... moreWhat company are you with? 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.
sr777, 10 Aug 2016How dumb. Some people are comparing iPad pro with Galaxy Note.
iPads should be compared wi... moreNo one is doing that.
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."
Many self help books say 'we often see in others what we fear of ourselves.
vrvly, 10 Aug 2016Is it me or they did not mention ambilight sensor on back. Also brightness go up to 1000nits. ... moreBrightness 1000nits,,.. that was my concern for dropping down to FHD or HD, the inevitable brightness drop (OLED brightness comes from illuminating pixels)..
If 1000nits is true the HDR video, and FHD, HD all become kind of AWESOME!
Nice one Bruvva!
AnonD-367917, 10 Aug 2016From a photography point of view (pun not intended but I will take what I can get), f1.7 on a ... moreI thinker around with the S7 Edge's camera and I think you'll enjoy motion photo- an extra 3-second video prior to the still shots. 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.
