I have been a little disappointed on everything after the Note 4...in my opinion, the Note 4 was the best of the best. Im typing on it right now, acts just like new. I love the removeable battery, I pop in new ones when it dies and Im not around a charger. I love the IR Blaster (its my remote for all my tvs), I love the flat surface (some people just arent huge on a curved screen) , and I have only seen these things being taken away. The battery is not much of an improvement from the Note 4,if it was around 4000mAh like rumored then I would be fine with it. my camera is a 16MP one, I have an IR Blaster,fingerprint scanner, S Pen, batteries, fast charging (wired), a great camera, flat surface, all I could want. I have always been excited about seeing the new phones to and what crazy new things will be brough forward, but it appears Samaung is taking away more than they bring. This may be another year without an upgrade..
what a waste of time Samsung has lost tech engineers ,maybe should hire in order to retire the tired ones. reparation is waste of time coz i hoped for something more techy. so lets wait for other brands for advanced smartphones.sorry sam u loose.
N 7 Edge has not changed a bit from S 7 edge, but downgraded n battery, but with bigger screen. It is now evident IPhone 7 too will be a super facial change. Both trend setters gave got Short of innovation, 2016 be stagnant. Nxt year start of 4k screen resolution doubled. Wait don't jump as Nothing can't be charged, but prices reduced by 4th Qtr
So Where is The Galaxy Note 6 ????Why Samsung Jumped on the note 7 at once???
[deleted post]Samsung has under clocked it for better battery life.
...they thought samsung as their same level to put 6gb ram to use in mobile phone..what for idiot?? rumor always can trick your mind and youll get hyped..for now im patiently for S8edge,hope smthing big will hit us
This phone looks like its made for Amphibians - why in this world would one need to take notes under water? It boggles the mind why phone manufacturers focus on gimmicky features instead of useful stuff like battery and handling? This idea of just pushing girly features to people is bullish. Why do we need an iris scanner that a fingerprint cannot? Because a finger can get wet? thought the phone is said to be water resistant. So if the fingerprint scanner gets wet, it doesn't work? I am seeing a gradual convergence of the Note and S series here. No more difference! This phone is simply a repackaged S7, nothing ground breaking here.
[deleted post]Many problems with LG devices they should first be careful i got LG3 after three month screen start to show orange color then i got LG 4 and after one month mother bord is down
For most users there is nil difference between 4 and 6Gb of ram..
If anyone can list a normal use scenario that it could possibly benefit, I'm listening...
Anyone who understands hardware, 6Gb is a detriment rather than a positive.. either the chips suck extra juice, or are generally slower speed.
The ram in a phone, clocked faster, is a benefit to ALL programs.. having large amounts of ram running at high speed isn't good for battery life.
Designing buses to interface with weird amounts of ram, sure.. but for a phone that doesn't have some triple chip memory access, 4Gb is as high end as a phone could reasonably want to go.
Developers, sure, might have a need, as working version of software in development can have memory leaks; and likely that phone would be on wall power...
Users,.. who would want that unoptimised software on their device that would use that much ram?
Smaller high speed ram is much better!
Back in the video card days where two models existed, one with more ram, one with smaller (but faster ram), the faster ram yielded more frames per second every time.
Ram can only make a device 'faster' if the usage demands more and we have hit a wall,..
when we run out of ram, unused apps get dropped from ram, whilst the new stuff gets loaded in,.. faster ram clears and loads quicker in this scenario.
I have always opted for less ram that runs quicker, and it has always met my needs.
I am the sort of user who will happily keep fifty webpages open across three different browsers.
Photoshopping large 'raw' files might need a machine with more ram than the standard (windows desktop), assuming the user wants to leave tonnes of webpages open at the same time.
Windows desktop likes a lot of ram itself.
This is a phone operating system, designed for trivial amounts of ram..
Android 4 was designed to cache programs into ram just in case a user might want them, perhaps saving a hitch/ half second to load a program on first use.
So when we have seen our 2Gb ram phones 80% used, it isn't because we are actually using it..
Faster ram chips is preferable every time. The best chips are usually very expensive.
4Gb is insane amounts for consumer phone use.
I would have been annoyed if this phone had 6Gb and would have lost most interest in it, as it would have shown poor design, and just an interest to 'look good on paper'.
H.R. LIPTON , 02 Aug 2016note 7 is note,there is no alternative phone like that. yes there is ,,,the chineese phone made by hawie,,something like that..will have a note..and flat screen..that is the one i am getting..hate curved screen
just another 7 edge...i hate the curved screen....i have the note 4, and was praying samsung would provide a flat screen..bye bye samsung
the note 7 is plain stupid , why coz as a note user, i can tell that the most important thing note users care about is the power of note series, it always had the most powerful chip sets screens ram even the biggest battery but now samsung thinks the pen it why people care about, i have my note 3 for like 3 years now and i don't use the s pen and i wont use it on the note 5 either, the note 7 is a big disappointment to me , 3500mhm battery instead of 4000 or 4200 only 4gb of ram instead of 6 or 8 snapdragon 820 instead of 823 and not even a one improvement for the screen or cameras i'm not asking for more resolution but they could have tweaked some small things and why samsung never make a better speakers ? or sound quality in general ugh i wanna kick the asses of samsung's designers
and last but not least i think gsm arena made a mistake with the specs of the phone the camers sensor is 1/ 2.5 " not 2.6
Disappointing. Been waiting for this for a long while but they didn't deliver. No new processor, no dual camera, only 4GB RAM, not even the 3800 battery. No fizz...
Cannot believe his is smaller than my Vodafone smart ultra 6 ,,unbelievable,, absolute masterpiece of engineering.
No user-replaceable battery = not interested.
On a daily basis an external battery pack may keep you going but do nothing to fix the fact that, after a year or so of aggressive use, lithium batteries lose a lot of their performance. I am not willing to buy a device that I need to send to a third party for a repair.
I think note7 is the best smart phone in the world but I like to have a Galaxy note with support of project tango
Samsung found secret formula for making Note series...
You take first one of S series phone...
You pack a Drilling machine...
Make a hole under the phone...
Find a pen...
Write some software of it...
You have Brillant New Note...
God damn you samsung...
