Tcool, 09 Aug 2016You don't need to carry a power bank all the time neither and extra battery for plastic phone.... moreYeah, discipline by NOT using the smartphone so much like for watching YouTube, browsing, listening to music or audio books, no drawing with the S Pen either, and most especially no games.
Keep everything off, like data, all the radios. Yeah, is a good idea to not use it totally use it until somebody you want to impress is present. That's really good advice there. S/

Andy, 08 Aug 2016Let me have my liberty to post my opinion with regard to what the people are complaining about... moreFellow Filipino here. I agree with all your points. I actually have pre-ordered one yesterday. Honestly, this is the first time I am buying a Samsung product. My previous phone is LG Nexus 5 which got soaked in water once and never woke up again.
As of now I am blind with the clamor regarding the Note 7's features (most of them are current Note users). They are practically discouraging the people to purchase the product. I understand their intention of warning people before spending away their money. But most of the comments I read are just rants.
The Note 7's captive market are business users. Ordinary consumers would rather purchase the S series. Why? Because they are just lazy to use the stylus.
Having said that, it is safe to say that more than 50% of the prospective buyers of Note 7 knows what they are buying. Note 7 is not a joke. It is feature-packed and would probably last for more than 5 years!
Makes you really think what was Samsung's decision makers thinking behind last year's Note NOT having memory expansion, and 64 GB version was not available everywhere.
It's really good to see 64 GB being base model and returning memory expansion so I can pretty much use my 128GB microSD. Planning to get the 256GB microSD. Too bad this is not UFS card compatible... or maybe it is?
I'm expecting this to be as early as 19th. I was thinking of waiting for the reviewers to publish the performance. Testing the S Pen 4096 levels of pressure just made me ordering right away.

Charge your phone 1 to 2 hours before you leave and you will have a 100% fully charged phone by the time you're about to leave. I won't believe your phone will be 50% discharged when you reach your destination where there would always be available power outlet to charge. If there is a will there is a way, closed minded people always have reasons.

Keep lying and misleading readers alleged teacher!

Hmmm.. status ornament. The plastic brick phone cannot do all your crazy stuff so you need a "fragile" glass phone to back up.
No flat screen
No removable battery
No IR Blaster
The water resistance is a good move but the iris scanner is a waste. I would rather havery an fm radio. I would have been ready to replace my note 4 if they had made a note 4 with the newer cpu/gpu.

If you have recorded your battery use, there will be a difference now at probably 20% less efficient. As I explained on my last post to someone about Depth of Discharge, keeping up the battery percentage whenever you can will increase the life cycles. http://flic.kr/p/J9T9mh
I believe the secret folder can be assigned with a fingerprint or digit code. Nothing so amazing about iris scanning, just something extra. I'm crazy about the S Pen getting 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
I'm not one of some rich people who can easily buy one or two note7. After one year or less they can easily replace the note7 with S8 or note8. But i still want to have a note7 for use more than two year to replace it with the new one. Because of that i need a smartphone that can easily replace the battery by my self. So the removal battery is one of great thing to have if your note7 battery is about to die within two year or less. Note that I'm not the rich people who have a lots of money.
Andy, 08 Aug 2016Let me have my liberty to post my opinion with regard to what the people are complaining about... moreAbout your comment segment on the removable battery... I have read all necessary literature, and watched Youtube videos on the matter of how batteries work, and the best practices according to the technical experts. The battery will degrade and you can just expect a good 300 to 500 charge cycles. Each cycle is equivalent to one fully drained to fully charged - it can be counted as the accumulations of fractions of charges, ie - you charge even if you don't fully drain the battery all the time.
And some rules are if you want a battery to be efficient are:
1. Keep the charge between 40% to 80% - best is never let your charge to lower than 50% as keeping up the battery's % up can increase life cycles. Here is a DoD (Depth of Discharge) chart showing you can increase battery cycles of up to 4 times, or even to more than 2000 charge cycles if you keep it charge above 75%: http://flic.kr/p/J9T9mh
2. Heat is the number one enemy of batteries - Do not fast charge or use any sort of induction (wireless) charging as they contribute to degradation mainly because they contribute more heat.
3. Best to charge small chunks of charging when you can top up your battery - this is related to number one on this list. This means you have to carry a powerbank most of the time.
I like the fact that water-resistance has made it more compelling for the device's survival, and not being able to take the battery is a security delay so that you can track where your device is if someone stole it - well, they can just remove the SIM in the mean time. Now we can lock our phones so no one can install or reboot to factory settings - ie, it's more secure than ever. I believe there are apps that prevent your device from being turned off. They can just reboot it, but not turn it off.
