[deleted post]I was really hoping Microsoft would have went through with the Surface Phone Pro. Would have been a direct competitor to the Note as it was supposed to have a competitive stylus. They stuck with the Lumina so it's pretty basic. Even the Note 4 kicks Lumina's ass.

We are talking that... moreWorse gpu, CPU, chipset and processor?
You do realize CPU, and processor, and chipset are the same thing?
Instead of repeating the same thing in different words you can just tell "worse proccessor".

This is most fantastic and superb review. It shows how far and how conversant you are with android and Samsung family. This is indeed a giant strides of high tech leap! Galaxy Note7 is a most!
ahmed tanveer, 18 Sep 2016I have written first ever SAMSUNG phone to have type c(which is correct).
We are talking that... moreFrom your write up, you know only a little about the Lumia devices, let me walk you through some features you don't know about, so that in the future when Samsung copies them you will be aware.
L950xl does not have sAMOLED, but it has clear black display, which in my opinion is way better, especially for sunlight readability. Always on display was made by samsung to challenge the glance screen which is available only on Lumia devices, glance screen uses zero battery to display, it has more feature than always on, you can set any apps you to notify you on the glance screen, you can choose variety colours for it at night, you make it go away when you do not need it especially at night. The cpu, gpu, were the best as at the date of production. Snapdragon is not the maker of the processor on Sammy note 7 I cannot say which is best, but I do know that snapdragon is among the best in what they do. 3gb RAM on windows 10 mobile is more than sufficient, my guess is you might only need it when you are using continuum. As for the store, you do not know about it, so I live there.
For heart rate, I have my Microsoft band, it measures my heart rate, my sleep, and many more health and fitness features, it is among the most accurate health/fitness band. However, when it comes to matters regarding my heart I only trust the doctors advice I do not joke with health because of a feature on a phone.
Fingerprint scanner is not the best way of securing your device, cos when you pass out or you are asleep, anyone can swipe your finger on your device and have full access. I guess that is why note 7 has iris scanner, but I do like fingerprint scanner very much, so I agree with you on this one.
Do you know you can hook your phone to larger screen like your TV set, the windows 10 mobile begin perform like a PC?
Do you know that you can access you 2TB hard drive storage capacity with L950xl, just connect your continuum?
Do you know you can use both wired and wireless keyboard and mouse on L950xl and bluetooth keyboard and mouse as well?
Do you know that the virtue keyboard on L950(xl) is awesome; it has a joystick to move the cursor around, it can be resized, the keyboard can be moved around to any where on the screen?
Do you know apps corner allow you to select the apps you want your friend to have access to on your device, without giving him access to EVERY other part, apps etc on the device?
Do you know that windows 10 mobile is more secured than android?
Do you know that all my Microsoft apps/services are available on all mobile OS? I can access to my Microsoft services irrespective of the OS which makes me more productive.
Do you know that there are no bloatware on windows phone? Any apps that is not a traditional phone app can be deleted.
Do you know that you can double tap on the screen to wake, and double tap on navigation area to sleep? Very useful when you holding your coffee and you want to wake/lock your phone with the other hand while your phone is lying on your desk in the office. Just double tap.
Do you know that you can swipe from bottom to hide the navigation keys? It prevents accidental touching of the nav. keys during use, and also create more real estate for use.
Did you notice that all features I mentioned above makes your more business productive? No gimmicks. I once had a note 3. I only use the s-pen for navigating the phone, screen shot, writing notes, creating tiny windows for viewing movies and other multitasking, I am not artist, I do not know to draw. It was a gimmick feature, just like the heart rate, can you trust it to be accurate?
absolut-allen, 18 Sep 2016"I hated my Note 5"
Gotta love autocorrect Well nevermind, they deleted my original post because it wasn't some crap troll post.
So forget this one...
absolut-allen, 18 Sep 2016Wrong. The big mistake was rushing out a phone not giving a damn about their fans and creating... moreYup, Samsung already paying dearly for the mistake. Lowering the price for something that cost some $300 to make and charging more than twice that is the plausible move.
As much as I enjoy using the Note7's capabilities like being able to draw even finer details with the improved S Pen, I have stopped using it. The probability of between 1 out of 42,000 and 1 out of 10,000 of it exploding is pretty high. I just don't want it exploding while i put it usually in my top shirt pocket.
Australia, Hong Kong, and other countries are getting theirs replaced starting today. Mine's getting replaced in less than 2 weeks later.
The stigma of all the trouble and reputation of Note7 exploding will not go away so soon. Parag and that other Note.5 user will be very happy to buy it some at $600 and will never admit getting it.
I'm already laughing.
ahmed tanveer, 18 Sep 2016I have written first ever SAMSUNG phone to have type c(which is correct). We are talking that... moreKID, if samsung mentioned that it is always on display supported it doesn't mean LUMIA 950 doesn't, and by the way you have mentioned cpu performance how did you compare? and regarding its store did you actually checked it out or just typed by the word of mouth.. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, KIDDDD,, What about Camera? .... LOLZ, I have Lumia 930 and I am ready to compete with you Samsung and Iphone Flaghship device cameras. R U READY ?
KHL, 18 Sep 2016if they do that ... its big mistakeWrong. The big mistake was rushing out a phone not giving a damn about their fans and creating a mess with battery issues. You don't think that hurt their brand? Go take some business classes.
Aren't you the one who suggested that after all this they "raise" the price? There's no logic in that.
ahmed tanveer, 18 Sep 2016Its price will drop surely. It will come around 700-750$(most probably).if they do that ... its big mistake

The Galaxy Note 7 is the best smart phone that I have ever owned. I say this despite the battery issue which I have full confidence that Samsung will fix. To date only 10% of the recalled Samsung smartphones have been exchanged which tells me that either people are not taking the recall seriously or they are waiting for more replacement stock to become available. I will also say that from a temperature standpoint the Galaxy Note 7 is much cooler than the Galaxy S6. Note 7 is a really nice phone and I think that once the dust settles it will become one of the top two phones out there. I think Apple has missed the mark with the iPhone 7 but, only time will tell.

We are talking that note 7 is better than note 5 or not.
But even Lumia 950 or 950XL have no cgg5,no sAMOLED,no always on display,worse gpu,cpu,chipset,ram and processor,no phase detection,no fingerprint sensor,no SpO2,no heart rate,worst store.
ahmed tanveer, 18 Sep 2016Some people are posting that note 5 is better than note 7.
These people don't know anything a... moreSamsung note 7 is not the first phone to have iris scanner and USB type C. The first devices to have iris scanner are Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 xl, it was heavily criticised by android and Iphone users. Today it has become a cool feature to have, because it is on an android device, Hypocrite.
Equally the Lumia 950 and 950 xl were the first devices to have USB type C connection/charging port, with fast charging with more than fifty percent charge in thirty minutes.
well after all i believe that when Samsung fix the issue.... they shud sell the divice at a higher price... if u confident of the product buy it ... if not go a way ... note 7 is a great piece.

Keep ignoring the fact people like me have powered down the Note7 more than a week now.
