DNeighbor, 07 Jan 2017Yes, NOTHING comes close to what the Note7 had. Since my telco had no stocks of 256 GB iPhone ... moreThe sealed battery is not the problem. It never was. Otherwise, you wouldn't be as confident buying virtually every other flagship currently in the market, not to mention the iphones, which always had sealed batteries.

Since my telco had no stocks of 256 GB iPhone 7 Plus, I'm not pushing it. Note 3 with 10,000 mAh still gets me through the day without charging to I get home.
I'm waiting for better devices they should never explode. I'll wait a few MONTHS to see what happens before getting anything with a sealed battery.

(when my first Note 7 got the battery limiting update, I returned it, albeit unwillingly. When I knew the second 'batch' would get the same lockdown, or worse, after global recall, I handed it back unwillingly)
The sales rep at my local telco store insisted that the iPhone7 Plus was the closest equivalent (other than the S7's)- to which I replied "No- nothing comes close".
Having used the Note 7 extensively for several months, it is the best phone the world had as yet seen.
And an A8 with a stylus isn't the same thing (or whatever stopgap comes to market shortly; it is a VERY different beast).
Haven't seen a camera module or screen come close to touching it, and as for weatherproofing and the cool stuff the stylus could do (translate, animated gifs etc...).. won't go back to using my older Notes...
Kinda lost all love for mobile phone tech since having had this beautiful beast. (twice)
Got the smallest phone I could find at the telco.. If I couldn't have the features I might as well have 'convenience'. (in this instance being a tiny form factor with a lot of battery life and none of the android/telco/specific model phone update issues that kept my Note 4 often ten months behind present security updates....)
hi any note coming soon after note5 r it full stop for note phone
Metal, 27 Dec 2016not a cool phone,it's too hot while charging toooo hot!!!Simply charge it via computer using the sub cord. Stays cool all the way to 100 percent. Takes a little longer.
Still using my note 7 from the begining. Two updates made me sad. But i escape from that and still now i am using my note 7 with 100% battery by changing the ROM. I am so glad and happy. It makes us feel good when we keep something but thats not available :P
JohnDavid9000, 16 Dec 2016I decided to keep my Note 7.Its features look to appealing to discard.And I used a package man... moreI can understand. Even I am a fan of Note 7...Now I have one S7E. But Note is Note as I'm writing everywhere..
Note 8 again a year...So I may go along with Note 5 with S7E keeping in my pocket.
I decided to keep my Note 7.Its features look to appealing to discard.And I used a package manager to stop the brick update coming soon. I think I'll keep this phone (all data backed up to the cloud), until it EXPLODES !!!!
Now that samsung know that people love the dual curve design, they should just blow the note 8 to a full 6 inch screen. It will still be narrower than any 6 inch device out there yet wide enough to accomodate even a 4000mah battery without squeezing it too much hence the explosions. Cheers!
Skyjai, 11 Dec 2016I was a Samsung fan. I have used Note 1,2,3,4. This time I bought my note 7 in Vancouver, Cana... moreHi,
don't worry i also had the same thing but in the end someone called me back so just stay calm and someone will get back to you..
