Again no FM radio and no removable battery! Samsung continues producing overpriced useless waste only for the trashcan...
I think samsung company despite first magnanimous start on "Galaxy s" in about 5-6 years ago ,the time that Iphone had looked like a Lord , it seem that SAM run in a way that Iphone had been run! EXPENSIVE!!! with many feature that exist in another brands .

All appliances that works on remote control comes with their dedicated remote controller so why worry about IR?
IR useful for lost remotes or accessing devices you don't have remotes for like office aircons or TVs (even the aircon's in nightclubs) Basically acts like a universal remote with the right app.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2016IR for what? It is useless, who needs IR in the world of Wi-Fi?IR transforms your smartphone into universal remote control for TVs, air conditioners, you name it. Note 4 has IR and it's VERY handy.
Seth Setiadha, 08 Aug 2016Thou I like the design better but I still dont like the glass back design, no replaceable batt... moreI agree, because of the following points:
No IR / 12 MP instead of 13 MP (Note3) or 16 MP (Note4) / Although it has an aperture of F/1.7, inbuilt zoom is 26 mm instead of 31 mm / No info available about MHL 3 TV-out, Air Gesture and usage of both of the cameras at the same time / Headphone jack at the bottom instead of top, so can't connect the earphones and keep it straight (will have to be upside down) in pocket.
Not saying that Note7 is a bad deal, but these few small options could have made it the best in the market, when Samsung is trying to compete with Apple and other big players. Waiting for Sept to grab it.
no ir, 08 Aug 2016skip >>> fail no IRIR for what? It is useless, who needs IR in the world of Wi-Fi?
AaronG85, 08 Aug 2016IR is a useful feature but I don't think it will ever be making a comeback.Useful for what? You cannot even mention two!

Why did Samsung bring back the glass back, non removable battery, fast charging and wireless charging just like what they did to bring back the microSD card support?
That is what you called silliness, bringing them back, including the latter?
Pusht, 05 Aug 2016Guys, No clear edge over 7 Edge, just a short pen, basic no use, on software we can also writ... moreFor the umpteenth time, the Note 7 is NOT an upgrade for people using the S series! Its for the note series, therefore its an upgrade for the Note 5 not for S7 edge.
A Â€3 IR adapter that plugs into the headphone socket will sort that out.
As I understand from specifications for dual sim model - you have or second sim or micro sd ? What is the point of that ?
IR is a useful feature but I don't think it will ever be making a comeback.
Thou I like the design better but I still dont like the glass back design, no replaceable battery, RAM only 4gb ( i was expecting to be 6 , which it would be awesome if it were )
So far i still prefer my note 4 for over design. the hardware spec, thou it has some improvements (except main camera), it hasn't significantly changed alot.
Rich, 08 Aug 2016I like s7 edge but I'm a note person (owned Note 3) so inspite of the s7's drool-worthy packag... moreI know what you mean. The silliness of taking out the memory expansion was the failure of the Note.5's and S6's poor sales last year. The microSD slot, camera performance and S Pen vast improvement with 4096 levels of pressure and pin-point precision just convinced me to getting it.
I just don't like the idea of the glass back, and sealed battery. I will not be charging this thing with fast charging or any wireless - it will increase the degradation. Hoping Zerolemon comes out with an integrated powerpack soon.
