stick to a very long alpha-numeric password.
the scanners are not a bad idea. its there for who wants to use them. its called having options. no one said the use of them was mandatory.
you know what is a bad idea....... storing data that could get you in trouble on an internet connected phone.

People like us don't care so much for the S8. Same feelings I had for the S3, S4, S5, S6 and S7 - if it doesn't have an S Pen, it's really half of what you're paying for who are used to writing and drawing. Sure, it's a glimpse of what the next Galaxy Note would be, but nothing to be envious about, except when the the S7 came out and had more features than the Note.5.
The Note7 exchange program has a deadline, from October 1, up to December 31 for my region. Next Note will still be 10 months away.
in some regions note 7 will be back again for sales by the end of the year as in Europe by end of November!!! which means 2 months away from S8 release and in my country the replacement program didn't launch yet :( note 7 sales will be affected a lot as many persons will choose to wait for S8 on February 2017!!
Read on sammobile that note 7 sales will be 60 % only comparing to Note 5 last year! :(

Can't wait for october 1st. In the meantime, im holding off on the update that limits battery capacity to 60%. We don't have reports of exploding units in the country anyway.
The new Note7 replacements have a software update that made the UI faster, smoother, and improved battery life for the T-Mobile and Verizon (Snapdragon 820) versions. Go on Android Central forums to read about the improved software. The laggy UI is what concerned me more than explosions. Looks the Note7 is back and better than ever!

The 60% battery restriction can be lifted to 80% under Device maintenance > Battery > Advanced settings (top right).
Reboot will reset it to max 60%.

If you have an old note 7 you will be now limited to 60%..... HOWEVER....
Under battery > advanced settings you can disable this to allow max 80% charge... if you turn off your phone it will default back to max 60% charge.

Samsung needs to improve S models Performance much. Please show as some blast of geekbench score and more speed in openning apps and dont forget gaming performance we wll be glad if all games will run as high as 80fps or above with no lags and major frame drops
Bunyip22, 23 Sep 2016You don't get a choice with the update... it just happens.I had the choice to update or not... Well, at that moment, I was in a bad spot, and it cancelled the update. The notification just sat there on the cog-wheel settings icon. Prior to this, I had a notification telling about it.
I suspect it has the kill command for the phone once it has reach a certain time. Deadline is about 3 months to exchange to the safe Note7. Oh, thank goodness I'm getting mine next week. Hello, Black Onyx.

iPhone 7 Plus - there's nothing to be excited about it. As it turns out, where the headphone jack used to be placed has some plastic to fill up the void, and Apple's excuse of "courage" turns out to be a move to earn more revenues from selling lightning connections for headphones, and pushing for their silly-looking AirPods. Same iOS, and need for iTunes over a computer to manage files. Bezels are the same silly top and bottom chin side. Price is just silly high with not features much features. Just yuck.
One Plus 3 - no memory expansion. That one thing is about the only thing that I don't like about it even with such an affordable price.
S7 Edge - well worth than above mentioned for its outstanding camera, screen, water-resistance, memory expansion, and long battery life.
Note7 just wipes every device you mentioned. The trolls who are hanging on to the excuse of 1 out of 42,000 chance of explosion DURING charging will be practically gone. And none of the above has the S Pen - which besides the camera and memory expansion, is the reason why people like me get it. Jotting down notes, sketching, and navigational precision.
I'm still going that Samsung gives the Note series the removable battery option, just cramp in 5000mAh. I still need to charge one time in the day so I can have battery until late evening, despite the fact I can get 7 hours SOT from a full charge. No one should be draining the battery often if they want the device to last long.
Just saw a battery comparison video of Note7 v iPhone 7 Plus. This was the less efficient Snapdragon 820 Note7 and it still outlasted the 7+! It lasted 1 hr longer in video playback. Imagine had it been Exynos? The camera comparison from SuperSaf was great too especially regarding the audio recording. It got me completely convinced the 7+ has poorer cameras on both sides and its only real advantage is the 2X optical zoom which is gimmicky in low light as it is just digital zoom in disguise.
Note7 > iPhone 7+
Note7 > iPhone 7+
Note7 > iPhone 7+, Snapdragon 820 still beat it
Note7 < iPhone 7+
Note7 also has the brightest screen at 1000 nits. And also is smaller and narrower while having a 0.2 bigger display. The only attractive iPhone 7+ is the matte black which attracts fingerprints too. All four color options of the Note7 look good. It takes nearly 3 hrs to charge a iPhone 7+. Cut it down to 2 hrs and 15 min with an iPad charger. The Note7 takes only 90 minutes. The tired old explosion jokes need to go away. It beats iPhone 7+ in several key aspects like camera and battery life.
I really like its selfie cam (wide angle). No need of a selfie stick and the video recording is in stereo while iPhone 7+ is stuck on mono! Go on forums and LG has a far more common issue with the reboot loop on the G4, G5, and V10. This is far, far more common and has happened on three different phones already! I might not take a gamble on the V20 and might just go Note7. I can't trust LG while Samsung will sort this out after the recall. Just cover up the back with a dbrand skin if you hate smudges.
You can't deny what a great all-around phone Note7 still is. Pre-recall or post-recall, this is still the best smartphone of the year. Don't hate if you never owned it or just read stories about the explosions. Still arguably the best out there.
Battery life is now limited to 60%. Finally called Samsung for a GN7 replacement.
When they deliver my new one i will give them my current one... may keep the current charger and headphones as compensation for my time :)
