absolut-allen, 08 Aug 2016This is laughable. You call that an upgrade? Have fun putting the phone to your eye 100's of t... moreHey, Allen. Um, I'm not super excited about the iris scanner, or fingerprint scanner to unlock my phone. You still have to press the home key or power button, swipe to the unlock interface, and then either put your fingerprint on the home button or look and the iris scanner.
What I'm doing currently is one less step with Google's Smart Lock (under security settings) whereby since I'm always connected with a trusted Bluetooth accessory like my wireless earphones, I just swipe to unlock.
Iris is just like the fingerprint scanner - it's there for opening your secret folder. The secret folder is something.
Note7 is a worthy upgrade to me mainly because of the camera and S Pen vast improvements compared to my present Note 3. Water-resistance and memory expansion are secondary things that are important to me. And I still hate the fact the back is glass, and having replace the battery means going to their service center and pay a lot more for just a new battery.
xxx, 08 Aug 2016then dont buy this phone.....i think you are poor people who dont have a money :pbuy the phone think of the people who need the money from the Oilmen who get the raw materials for the plastics to the miners who get the coal for wire to the thousands in assembly and many more in distribution and sales, buy this phone and you will be doing your part by contributing to the betterment of thousands of working men and women (and a couple rich guys too)
if u want buy a better phone..buy the huawei mate 8....superb design with superb specs...better than any sam's son
Note 7 :
Does not vary much from Note 4
and is a exact copy of the S7 series.
Yes, everything this device have are awesome except for it's a little bit narrow in shape. It should be equal to note 5 in width if not wider.
Andy, 08 Aug 2016Let me have my liberty to post my opinion with regard to what the people are complaining about... moreYour comment is a good example of people who just see the minus or negatives or cons instead of all the good and positive things N7 gives to user.
Deep condolences for you.
nobody, 08 Aug 2016What is wrong with you "non removal battery" MOANERS?! I was one of the anti "non removal bat... moreThe phone is impressing but for u who's asking like how can the phone be a water resistant with a renovat battery??? How then did Samsung manage to put it in a galaxy s5??? You'll getyour answer there you nobody!!!
The proponents of the ir blaster are mostly the really lazy and spoiled ones. Oh my god i must absolutely have one remote control for everything in my technologically advanced house! Two or 3 more won't do at all!
Observer1979, 08 Aug 2016bro i have a samsung s4 3 years now with 2 extra batteries and its working fine for me wanted ... morei agree with you in basics, because my current phone is htc one + .. and i am a very heavy user of smartphone in addition to being an IT user. But few months back i started the hunt for a new phone because i cpuld feel the heaviness of the new apps on my phone.
Let me have my liberty to post my opinion with regard to what the people are complaining about.
1. NO IR BLASTER REMOTE.
IR blasters are good for controlling smart devices; aircon, TVs, etc. But controlling these devices may sometimes fall into wrong doing. Public appliances like, TVs at airports, aircons at clubs etc., these appliances must require only authorize personel to operate this machinery/devices. So if you control these things without a certain permission you are and thereby violating one's privacy (the owener). It seems samsung are directly responsible with these, not rather its consumers. Thereby the removal of the IR blasters.
2. NO FM RADIO.
Galaxy S and Notes are part of Samsung's flagshiplines. These flagship smartphones are aim to the general public at anytime. But considering the expensive nature of these phones, only those rich people who can afford this kind of devices. Judging by that, these people do not typically listens to fm radios. Why would they listen when they can stream? Moreover, these flagship phones require hardware management designs. A single component in a smartphone is very essential to the space it takes to the ratio on value it had while maintaining phones overall design. (See examples like Apple removing 3.5mm headphone jack). So by removing the hardware components/ Fm raduo receivers, engineers may put something more valuable than the fm radio. Plus, as I had mentioned, these devices are target to the rich people. On emerging markets like, India, xountries in africa and philippines (where I live) have other devices which cater the needs of the fm radio. Theres the J series, and A series with affordable prices. I use J7 btw.
3. NO REMOVABLE BATTERY
Let me ask a question though, What's the difference if I buy a power pack and a separate battery? There is really none in my opinion. To me Id rather had a water resistant phone than having a removable battery. Plus, fast charging will cater the needs extra juice on the go whenever you are running low on juice. There's also wirrless baterry pack.
4. NO OPTION FOR FLAT DISPLAY
Really samsung? Well I guess they are making the "Edge Display Tech" as there defining feature. As there trademark or something.
I am particulary saying about the iris scanner. Why do you complain about this. Its not gonna bite when you dont use it though. Maybe it has to do with Europian release i think. Remember note 5? It was not release in the europian countries. Maybe its because of the cold. People tend to use gloves in cold weather, fingerprint wont function with gloves on thats why they did not release the the Note 5. Now there is an iris scanner on the new note maybe europiam people are happy now. Haha, i think its a ridiculous yet a viable theory dont you think?
Well guys, those are my insights about this new Note, hope I can clear some hate about this devices. Its really a nice device though, theres nothing to hate about it. (Although 4GB ram is somewhat disappointing) But other than that its worth an upgrade.
Feel free to comment about this post. Be sure to post your opinions constructively though, you are not an immature kid! And I dont feed trools.

How stupid you are to loose your TV remote control.
It is not polite to mess up with office aircons or TVs (even the aircons in nightclubs) basically only authorized person is allowed to adjust those public appliances.
Put yourself as the owner of those appliances, will you be happy if someone is messing around with your stuff?
And Samsung's message is clear not to mess around with public appliances when it removes the IR blaster in their phones.
