How dumb. Some people are comparing iPad pro with Galaxy Note.
iPads should be compared with other similar tablets. Noe even with the Surface lineup.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2016ok tnx i will purchase ipad pro with pensil for indoor i think its size is a good point for ho... moreCheers (buddy) for asking....
Ummm,.. I would have to know your usage...(needs)
The ipad was a no-brainer... whilst I love OLED, the extra size of the iPad does make it much more versatile.. and the speakers on the 'pros' are insanely good (for small portable devices).
You seem pretty keen on the xperia.. is this for ps4 remote play or something?
The HTC does have a very loud and very good quality headphone output (for 'audiophiles'- not a dirty word).
Give a breakdown of your planned usage.
For reference,.. I bought a phablet because I wanted to combine my purchase costs of a phone and tablet,.. allowing me to get a 'better part'.
Like any Jack of All Trades,.. it is only a master of 'some'.
After I got an ipad, most of my consumption was on it.. my phone is in many ways back to simply being a phone.
Have you considered a small unit?
Being a technologist, and for many generations always pairing an organiser with a phone with a modem,.. I have been using all sorts of crazy phone tech since 1993. (Our country hadn't even approved caller id for the new digital handsets at this time).,..
I know a whilst back I had to recommend an actuarian friend a phone.
at the time I suggested three; knowing his needs three options gave him some scope.
I recommended the Samsung S5 (due to waterproofing), a Sony Z3 compact (audio output and svelte design), and the HTC M8 (a perfect good looking phone in many ways).
I am not sure why you are so keen on Sony X series,.. Z series offering some pretty great value presently. I do understand that cost might not be a factor (you are looking at iPhones etc)
The newest HTC doesn't really do it for me (and I had considered making it a day one purchase prior to release.. something about the aesthetic..)
Any interest to wait for the Nexus HTC variants about to roll out?
After languishing in Android fragmentation hell (My Note Edge still has no lollipop and only has January security updates); going Nexus sounds pretty good.
Have you looked at phones from Oppo and the chinese brands?
Have you considered which Androids get frequent rollouts in fair time?
Anyhow.. what is your usage plans... (eg how much time each day doing X, and Y and Z)!!?
Cheers,.. this would help me to help you!
It's all marketing, can sell stones n style, no difference in specs only 900 $ extra to spend. Technology has stationed, 4k uhd screen need of hour VR, next year total total change n style and specs. Top buttom area
nearly eliminated. Wait Wait Wait. Heavens not going to fall.
One of the features that got me stuck to Samsung devices is the inferred blaster and it's missing on this phone previous productions like the S7.. It's all I look out for in a phone and of course the other powerful features. Sacrifice the blaster and I'm gone. I'm stuck with my S6 Edge and I'm not changing phones until they bring the IR blaster back.
choa noa, 07 Aug 2016no infrared , no ir blaster ,no fm radioFirst of all,IR blaster and Infrared are the same thing.
Most of the high end drop IR blaster and fm radio.
So,it is not a very big thing to reject a phone.
It has more than 25 great plus points.
Tcool, 10 Aug 2016Yeah right. agree on that!But smartphones have some advantages over laptops.
e.g=you can take it anywhere in your pocket,camera,durabilty(dropping),water resistance(in some phones),cheaper in price,etc.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2016Non user-removable battery again??Almost every high end phone has non-removable battery.
e.g=S7E,S7,Mate 8,P9,P9+,Oneplus 3,Iphones(all).
Some high end (rarely) have removable battery.
Its not a very big thing to reject a phone.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2016Non user-removable battery again??Yeah it returns just like the return of the microSD card support.
whitedragon, 10 Aug 2016It is cool for palm rejection.

Hey, I mean I've never considered iPads to be useful with their direct file sharing to other devices, but Apple made it compelling with their Pro lineup.

What do you say?
Arjun, 10 Aug 2016All my fellow note 2 proud owners what you all have decided shall we upgrade r note 2 to note ... moreDear Arjun, you said what I was thinking about... I am very happy with Note 2. After 4 years, I have no complaints what so ever. Even the battery has not been changed. I have used Note 2 to do a lot of things including detective stuff using really cool apps :) but it has stood the test of time like a shining knight taking in a lot of rough handling and several hundred drops. I will always be a fan of Samsung Galaxy Note series.

I thought you don't need additional gadgets cause your plastic remote co... moreTcool?
If you are getting ridiculed,.. you kind of make yourself open for that.
It used to embarrass me that you would 'fanboy' the hell on the Note Edge thread (when you had it), then ridiculed Note Edge users with your premium build Note 5,.. and give some weird rants with regards to micro sd card slots depending on whatever hardware you have at the time.
Also posting as anonymous and logged in, right after each other, in varying threads, you do sometimes represent the bane of internet forums, often being an actual troll.
Sometimes you might not understand whatnyou are talking about (we all are free to be this way), but seldom acknowledge inconsistencies or offer non fan boy based advice, sometimes insisting your point of view quite vehemently.
An example is attacking a forum poster sharing positive experiences about their technology.. (hence why I am interjecting here).
Whilst no doubt you have some great knowledge, and are a very active site 'supporter', it would be nice if we could all just 'get along'.
I like you. Don't get me wrong!
But bickering just makes outsiders skip over 'useful' info perhaps buried in these threads,.. as the 'rare' useful post is buried between pages of 'my phone is the best' type comments!
All my fellow note 2 proud owners what you all have decided shall we upgrade r note 2 to note 7......i liked it n decided to upgrade n want to know ur opinions is it worth for us Bcoz we have skipped note3,4,5.......waitin 4 reply from note 2 proud owners.....
Mrd, 09 Aug 2016Its time for "Note7 MAX" with 6.6" display and 6GB ram.there wont be any Note 7 Max, but Galaxy A10 is coming end of this year with 6.4" QHD AMOLED.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 10 Aug 2016I had extensive research on the iPad Pro. Unless you would need the Pencil, as in for drawing/... moreNow you are talking.
I thought you don't need additional gadgets cause your plastic remote control phone can handle it all?
Seems the table is turning around...
First getting the Note 7 while you still have the brick plastic phone, now another gadget in the form of iPad...
I can still remember how you ridicule me for having the Huawei P9 and MediaPad X2 at the same time with the premium 64GB Note 5.
Looks like you are following my footsteps.

(Having a hand on the screen whilst drawing)
If you already have an Air, get the Paper/53 'carpenters pencil' (perhaps).
Their own software supports some of the best use of multihand input,.. eg drawing with their pencil and using a finger to 'smudge'.
Haven't found any free software (or trial) for the apple pencil that can match it.
I haven't tried out the new Note 7 digitiser (4096 levels pressure sensitivity) and the half width nib (from previous generations) (facts supplied for 'other readers'),.. but I can most definately vouch for the Apple Pencil.
Angled pencil 'shading' and the 240hz sampling,does make it feel pretty darn close to the real thing. (About a dollar from any newsagency; actual paper and a pencil!)
The Pencil critisisms I would leverage is no 'off' switch. Heck make reversing the cap end turn the smegging thing off. Version 2 will iron out difficulties no doubt. Yes it can fast charge off the lightning port and we are up and running, but who wants to leave batteries in a fully discharged state.
Won't affect tabletop users, but carrying around in the bag will wake the pencil and it will be flat.
