They also bring back the premium glass back, the non-removable battery, the Samsung Pay, the Gear VR support, just like when they bring back the microSD card support.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 06 Aug 2016Yes, the removable battery and IR remote functions are very useful. Just that I can't find a n... moreThe principle of the microSD card return applies.
Removable battery and IR are not important since they did not make a come back.
Stick to the principle.
The Note7 isn't a direct upgrade for S7 series
In fact it's supposed to be on par with its S series
You can't expect a smartphone to have drastic improvements
Same goes for other companies
And stop f King whine about the 6GB ram. If you really need that much RAM and specs driven you're better off getting a laptop or computer.
What matters most is the Note7, can handle multitasking and have better RAM management, which was an issue in the S6 series.
As for camera it's not the megapixels, it's the sensor and aperture.
To sum up, quit whining about 12MP camera and 6 or 8 GB RAM
Note7 will still sell simply put.

The notes pixels are also bigger thus helping A LOT in photo quality. yes higher megapixels will result to sharper photos when zoomed in but tell me how often do you look at your photos in 50" screen or print your photos to very large sizes? I'll rather get the low light prowess of a lower megapixel camera with an f1.7 apperture than a high megapixel camera that sucks at low light

Samsung lacks camera techs
Even Chinese phones have at least 13 mp cameras with big lens and sensors in 2016
Reducing mp is only for fast launching and snpping and samsung brainlessly dig a BIG hole in the back of note7
Fast snap shot doest not mean the photo quality
SONY make a fast camera with marketleading mega pixel and Even cancapture moving object with stunning photo quality
For eg XPERIA XA ULTRA: Lord of the Selfie as the frontal camera of XA Ultra 16 mp camera is better than
S7 edge main camera and will be better than note7 main 12 mp camera and better than any galaxy selfie camera
Read it GSM arena review XA Ultra Lord of the selfie
Farai, 05 Aug 2016Why 12 MP camera down from 16 MP?it has f1.7 cam. camera is not about mp. did know that?
The 12 MP camera from the note 7 is better then the 16 MP one, because the 12 MP camera uses a technique in which there are bigger pixels and with the help of this you can make excellent photos in darker environments without needing a flash light. The S7 and S7 edge use the same camera and their pictures are great. To get more realistic colors take a dive in the settings to display there is an option with the word basis inthere set your phone at basis and you get the colors they are instead of a little over saturation. Good luck with a device like that you wont be disappointed.
The 12mp is not worse just becsuse its less pixels doesn't mean anything. The note 7 pixels are double the size for better low light pics.
while the galaxy note 4 came with a 16 mp. my galaxy note 2 has 8mp from 2012. the rumor was 18 mp. why the h2hockey stick did they do a dumb/stupid move like that and trying to beat apple sales. morons!!! and i am a bigger one for going out and buy this piece of crap because i have waited so long for it. they got us by the short hairs. rass claut!!! mon...

If not,since when have you bought mate 8?

Samsung delivers its phone to 2 types of people. One who like to stay on the latest of everything and dont care about minor flaws. The s line is for them. The other who like to wait for the refined version of the flagship introduced early with minor improvements. The note line is for them. Dont expect the note to be a good upgrade over the same s line (note 7 vs s7). Its a good upgrade over the last note device.
Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back panel....does that mean the front isnt?

I would take a quality 12Mp shooter anyday.
Combined with a faster lens.
Know your tech and comments like your become laughable (to photography enthusiasts)
Sensor size (not megapixels) and lens quality+paired with software that doesn't kill the details; for the win.
A more sensitive sensor captures more light... capturing more light means the 'shutter' can be open less time to get the same exposure, means more 'sharp' shots and better low light capabilities.

Its about the aperture. the size of the lens opening. note 4 has 2.2 lens while note 7 has 1.7 lens. the smaller the size the stronger focus and better quality.
LOL, Samsung is making microSD slot a big deal by bundling free 256GB capacity ones with some regions. So opposite than last year's failed experiment with measly internal memory, and most countries getting just 32GB internal. This is a full 180 degree turn after realizing sales were down due to the fact of missing memory expansion.
What's even more apparent was the fact they wanted to promote making and viewing VR, yet just provide no high-capacity memory? D*ck move, right there as 1 hour of VR video can take as much as more than 20GB of memory. Plus the fact that the new function of still pictures having a 3-second video clip prior to the still shot can be as much as 7MB in memory size.
I am so happy that 64GB is the base model, and I'm not lusting for the rumored 128GB model. With a 256GB of microSD is tremendous amount of space (as I was pointing out to somebody it will be out this year). Our phones now are virtually our portable large-capacity memory storage. Just turn on the encryption for added protection to your files.
