Note7 still has the best camera on a smartphone in 2016. I saw the Supersaf video and iPhone 7 Plus has terrible mono audio for video recording and dynamic range is poor. Samsung's ISOCELL still blows away the typical BSI sensors in low light. Only thing I like from the 7+ is that zoom.
Also, PhoneBuff had the Note7 drop 50x face down. Still worked. The iPhone 7+ took only 10x until it stops working. Where Samsung S7 and Note7 is poor is RAM management. They tend to lose speed tests to OnePlus 3 and LG G5. Note7 is still one of the best phones out there. Forget the recall.
Damage has been done? Keep saying that to yourselves. Note7 may no longer sell as well but Samsung with billions of dollars across all industries will recover. Foldable displays will make this recall a footNote. And this will push Samsung to make the Note8 so much better next year.
Received mine beginning September. No problems. Then Samsung called and asked to send it back and have it replaced with an S7 till new stock arrives. I told them to send replacement Note 7 as soon as new stock arrives. Then a "brilliant" software self installed itself limiting battery life to 60%. Ridiculous. I am old enough to decide whether I want to take the risk or not, dont need Samsung to baby sit me.... Phone also gets stuck every now and then and needs restart. I will seriously reconsider the replacement brand next year
Bunyip22, 21 Sep 2016The big issue with the GN5 was the lack of storage and no SD card. That CAN'T be fixed.
The... moreIt was fixed with with wireless 1TB HDD.
But the damage done by the explosions of Note 7's cannot be fixed.
Burned skin scars and property ashes caused by its explosions cannot be fixed anymore!
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 21 Sep 2016More foolish sour grapes statements. Look up that meaning.
It's so sweet to know exploding ... more"Started in some countries" ONLY.
Just like when you insists that 64GB Note 5 was available in "some countries only".
Means that replacement has not yet started in MOST countries and there are still exploding Note 7 in the markets. Perhaps it will take another six months to finish all the replacement mess. By that time new Note 8 will be few months for launching and that will be my next Note phone. For sure it will beat your explosive phone all the way especially with safety.
The damage is done, replacing won't do the trick, this is the most dangerous phone now!
Butuh Apai Gondol, 21 Sep 2016Note 7 will be back with better phoneIt's great
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016Same as your sour graping with Note 5 against the plastic remote control outdated phone. LOL!The big issue with the GN5 was the lack of storage and no SD card. That CAN'T be fixed.
The big issue with the GN7 is a faulty battery in 0.01% of phones... that HAS been fixed.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016Same as your sour graping with Note 5 against the plastic remote control outdated phone. LOL!Note.5 had no memory expansion and came 32 GB in most regions. My Note 3 had 32 GB and memory expansion.
No one with a logical mind can go for a 32 GB only Android device in 2015. 64 GB models were "special order". Note7 has corrected that, with many improvements. Note.5 was just a failed experiment to see if they can do an Apple move with no memory expansion.
It's not sour grapes on my part- I NEVER wanted anything to do with a device that had less features than my Note 3. I can't sour grapes on something I'm not impressed with functions wise. Instead, I used my money to get my wife an S7 Edge.
Note7 surpasses everything over the Note.5. You can't deny that, and all you can do is just go on with exploding - which is not an issue anymore. I won't be surprised if you actually bought a Note7 next month to upgrade away from the Note.5.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 20 Sep 2016Because you CAN'T buy a Note7 now. Not for a month. Meanwhile I'm getting my replacement unit ... moreSame as your sour graping with Note 5 against the plastic remote control outdated phone. LOL!
[deleted post]Old news. Has nothing to do with Note 7. Thanks though...
Mulan, 20 Sep 2016What is the use of your 256GB expansion memory if you cannot switch it on while on the go?
Be... moreMore foolish sour grapes statements. Look up that meaning.
It's so sweet to know exploding issue is a non-issue now with the replacements started in some countries already.
It really eats you up that there's no excuse in getting the Note7 as the best Android product in the market now, huh?
ani080990, 20 Sep 2016Bro you are right...i m using s7 edge since 6 months and i must say it's almost a perfect phon... moreYeah, I've experienced my wife's S7 Edge's camera capabilities, and I was very convinced of getting the Note7 with the same sensor. S Pen and memory expansion are musts also top reasons.
And then the extra features of water-resistance, iris scanner, glance, screen resolution control, USB Type C, HDR video recording and screen, great SOT (Exynos), Edge tools, etc., makes it worth it than mere iPhone 7, or older devices.
Some people here are absolute losers when they keep mentioning about the exploding issue. While it will hurt Samsung's sales, no one can't deny that Note7 IS the smartphone to beat.
unnonymous, 20 Sep 2016very bad idea with iris scanner, what if i am asleep and someone open my eyelids delicately an... moreyou are too funny LOL
if you are sleeping, why take the time to slowly open your eye lids to scan your eyes, when i could quickly tap the finger print scanner on your finger?
which you think would take less effort if the person is sleeping???
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 20 Sep 2016Because you CAN'T buy a Note7 now. Not for a month. Meanwhile I'm getting my replacement unit ... moreBro you are right...i m using s7 edge since 6 months and i must say it's almost a perfect phone...i had s6 edge but i was not happy with the battery,there was no micro sd card,there was no ip67/68 rating and last the most important thing that s6 edge had very poor ram management....this all limitations of S6/S6 edge has been overcome in S7/S7 edge and Note7..
This is the honest opinion and i m using my S7 edge since 24 March 2016.
Hope this helps.
PS: Camera is Fabulous,marvellous,Outstanding etc etc especially in low light photography. Autofocus is Super Fast, till now no other smartphone has matched with the focus speed that the S7/S7 edge and Note7 have.
