AnonD-114814, 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.
AnonD-367917, 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.

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.
AnonD-430264, 10 Aug 2016Smartphones are not even close to laptops, Not even the i3 laptops. Keep dreaming buddy. Yeah right. agree on that!
Shahzad Adil, 09 Aug 2016Which one is batter processor exynos 8890 or snapdragon 820 plz reply me on shahzadadil50@gmai... moreFor games; the snapdragon might have the stronger graphics card... if games that pushed the video chip fully (not the lionshare, most games being written for market masses and high adoption generally support and are optimised for 'older' video chipsets) were what you were playing, they might have a slighly higher framerate. Nothing game breaking, no graphical effect differences.
In fact my experience of adreno video drivers is the inverse,.. some effects missing,.. an example being baldurs gate had missing water textures on adreno chipsets (on some platforms).
I have no experience with mali drivers (video chipset on the exynos devices), but I would, hands down, want the exynos chipset in my Samsung phone.
It is their own custom built processor that is likley to have the most software optimisations for, eg loading a multicore processor effectively.
Actual real world usage seems to confirm this, people quoting longer battery runtimes on the Exynos variants.
For me Exynos 'for the win', simply for the better audio hardware (through the headphone jack), but I do use high end headphones, run lossless audio files, and have an A class hifi (not to be confused with a class A amplifier), and consider high end audio 'my hobby'.
Most enthusiasts into audio would run an outboard DAC, maybe even a power amplifier, certainly select specific software for music playback...
I like the idea of a 'good enough' one box setup.
For which samsung phones generally are not considered the pinnacle of sound.
Adapt sound is a software trick they have that helps calibrate a set of headphones to 'flat responce' based on your actual hearing. Nifty in the least as a makeshift 'hearing test'.
Be careful with it though; sometimes adapt sound screws up and won't let a user rerun the calibration more than twice. (Has caught me out numerous times when buying new headphones and not being able to recalibrate)
Part of why I am keen for a new software update (lollipop) on my older Note Edge. That generally lets me rerun the tests, and the calibrations for my Roland studio monitors and Sony Mdr1s is 'incorrect' for my go to Bowers & Wilkins P7s I presently use as my portable headphones.
Anyhow, long story short, go exynos chipset if you can, unless you want the phone for VR
AnonD-367917, 10 Aug 2016Definately for home use,.. go the ipad.
The pencil support (for the 'pro' models) is insane... moreI had extensive research on the iPad Pro. Unless you would need the Pencil, as in for drawing/painting digitally, the iPad Air 2 is sufficient.
Pro artists consider the Pencil to out do Wacom tablet versatility and responsiveness. The tilt input simply can't be replicated as good as the Pencil's. I'm considering getting the iPad Pro just for the Pencil's capabilities.
Does anyone know when preordered Notes will be released? Why hype with preorder and make people wait a month?
