I ran the antutu benchmark and as far as results, it should oblibirate the Note 5-- as expected. So, I decided to give a real world test and download a pretty large video game. THE NOTE 5 was beating the 7 (same network); note 7 won by like 1%. okay now installing the damn game in both phone-- note 7 won by 1.5% of time. A patch was needed right away, both download and installed about the same time (maybe a second difference). PLAY the game and was both in the note 5 and note 7. I thought the game looked better in the note 5. I mainly buy the note for the STYLUS use, cause I actually use it for take notes at Church and at work! Im not a fan of the curve edges and im definitely not upgrading--- SO DISSAPOINTED! REal WORLD TEST people .. benchmarks can say what they want ....

And I don't like the non removable battery thing at all I think the best phone is the note 4 at the moment which I have
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2016Why a non removable battery?Because the back is glass
I've been a note lover since they came out. I recently turned to Apple because I switch over to a new phone company and I had already had the note 5 and I was not a fan of the edge phone 7 nor the small phone. I can't wait to see what the note 7 will bring as I'm ready to go back to Samsung but with that said I won't get an edge phone so I hope Samsung has more options. Im a home health nurse and depend on my phone a lot and screen size is very important to me but I won't get an edge.
AnonD-550102, 25 Jul 2016Bro spen not good useful tool
My note 5 spen broke easily when my phone droped to surface it... moreDude if you belive S-pen is not useful tool you should never buy Note series phone at the first place.
S-pen is one of the best feature in this phone. That why most of Note owners coming back to same phone but new generation because no another make produce anything even close.
come on guys give us something interesting,every top of the range phone is the same nothing changes besides the face and name!
as usual cheapskate sammy on battery issue.. it s should more than 4000 mah batt. juice..
The purported Edge display for the Note 7 is dumb AF. Note users don't want an Edge display (Note 4 Edge anyone? Discontinued shortly after release), that's what the S7 Edge is for. If the rumors hold true, Samsung is going to take a huge hit by only releasing a curved edge version. I was so much happier with my Note 3, I can't wait to get rid of my Note 5. But now I, along with every other Note user I've talked to, am most likely going to leave Samsung over this and go with a different phone. I work in the mobile industry, and the S7 majorly outsells the S7 Edge, by about 10:1. The Edge is extremely fragile with no tempered glass option (completely idiotic) and has a crap selection of cases as it's apparently hard to make cases for the Edge. They only just recently came out with an Otterbox Defender for the Edge. The screen protectors that are available don't lay flat once you put a case on, it pushes the edges right up. Most people who have the edge phones come in with broken screens due to the inadequate protection of crappy edge cases.
Bad move Samsung, smh.
AnonD-550102, 25 Jul 2016Bro spen not good useful tool My note 5 spen broke easily when my phone droped to surface it... moreDude! Dont blame the whole thing over an SPen that broke due to an accidental circumstance. The phone's main functions still works with or without it.
I already have a few cases from spigen for the note 7 and I notice the size isn't much bigger then the s7 edge. Hopefully they cut down the bezel but usually 5.5 and 5.7 the cases are much different but the s7 edge almost fits perfectly in the note 7 case
I was hoping this phone will have a better camera than the S7 even S7's camera is one of the best already. Hopefully the price tag will not go over $1,000 (CAD).

You are not the only person using smartphones, so S-Pen can be a lot more useful to others than yourself. For example, someone who takes notes and jot down ideas a lot when traveling.
