k, 10 Sep 2016Really? Despite the battery spooking people. Yeah!Most of the people(including me) trust Samsung and hoping that recall will fix this problem.
As,Samsung has identified and has started to fix it.

They also started a recall and will start selling it again when it will be 100% safe for us(customers).
RAJARAJAN, 10 Sep 2016note 5 is best.instead of buying note 7 i recommend to buy lg v20.it is one the best phone in ... moreLG V20 has some disadvantages which can be a deal breaker.
e.g=small battery,bad(ugly) design,worse screen type,no wireless charging,no stylus,no water or dust proof,no cgg5,no always on display,no heart rate sensor,no SpO2,no iris scanner,etc.
Note 7 has many(almost 20) great features which no other phone has.
AnonD-583178, 10 Sep 2016No fire resistance... :-PThey're giving free fire extinguishers.
It's wrath of God, on eve of launching! Sammy should learn lesson and improve internals checks of all hardwares. No charm left of N7 but wait by next year easily available 500$. As we know it's price falls like cards. Hav edge 7 titanium satisfied till it lasts. There more to change twice in a year, in this retchet world.

[deleted post]And you're not denying that despite all your complaints about EVERYTHING wrong with the Note7, you're still getting it by October.
Let me the first to welcome you to our little club. :-)

Btw your perception is totaly based on your Note7 fanboy Hangover..LOL .dont impose the same onto others.
I'll definitely buy a note 7,once it's back.
Although I have one S7 edge.
I'm looking for a note device.
Well what u people think how will be Note model of 2017?

Lex Slr, 10 Sep 2016if you are looking for mature feedback, then look elsewhere. im amazed at how emotional some p... moreI'm a Note 3 and Note7 owner. I can say comparing the two, and my using the Note7 for nearly 3 weeks now, there's not point in shelling out $950 for something that actually has lesser hardware capabilities. The Note 3 has IR remote, ability to change for a bigger battery, no fragile back, USB 3.0, finger Air View, thermometer, loud bottom shooting speaker, and the Note 3 has some functions the Note7 can do.
Note7's capabilities that I really use is the fact its camera is extremely superb, super-fast, and low-light picture-taking is no problem. S Pen is the best version yet as it has 4 times more level of pressure-sensitivity than the Note 3's. If you don't care much for these two things, not real points for having an upgrade.
I really don't like the fact that the Note7's battery is fixed, and will start losing some of its power hold in as early as 2 months as I have noticed in my wife's S7 Edge. However, the Note7 has a very efficient Exynos version that haS practically more than 50% longer use than the stock battery of the Note 3. So, my requirement of 6 hours SOT.
As in the matter for those who are happy with the Note.5 even without a memory expansion, there is absolutely no point in upgrading unless you regard water-resistance as an important factor. Some just need that new shiny device as some strange form of status item to show off. Memory expansion for a majority of people is important, and this is the main factor what Samsung and their experiment of replicating Apple's philosophy of no-memory expansion resulted in low sales last year.
Note7 battery issue is serious, yet I don't see it as a reason not to order it. Samsung has already started trickling safe ones, and I believe a majority of countries are getting replacements by mid-October. The complainers here are still telling us they are still getting it.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 09 Sep 2016And yet you're telling us you will still get the Note7 anyway...In a weekly poll done by GSMarena.
Almost 60-70% people will buy note 7 when it will again start selling.
I think I will get neither Note7 or iPhone 7 mainly because 4K displays and Samsung Galaxy Wing (Project Valley) is coming within six months. The banning of Note7 usage on planes ticks me off since I plan to be on a plane four times within two months. I buy a $850 phone that I can't turn on for my 16 hr flight? The iPhone 7 is already old news with low res and why would I want be stuck on a 2K display from the Note7 when 4K is better for VR and coming out soon?
Note8 will correct the problems of Note7. And iPhone 8 will be radically different where Apple plans to shave the top and bottom bezels. Apple might make a sexy looking glass phone again while 7 is more 6SE. I really don't like the haptic feedback of the iPhone 7. Why not keep it simple, Apple? Capacitive home button that doesn't try to emulate a click? Note7 and iPhone 7 now seem to be just placeholders for something different and revolutionary next year.
Getting a PS4 slim instead. Only $299 and comes bundled with Uncharted 4. Don't have time to wait for the Pro. Not into 4K gaming but want 4K for VR and the $100 savings can be used on games since I only have a 720p TV to begin with! And we don't see drastic price drops on consoles like we do on smartphones. The iPhone 7 and Note7 will be under $400 by next year. These consoles may not be a PC, but neither are smartphones if you think about it. And consoles do last longer to keep and not as quickly disposal like overpriced smartphones are.
And why are expensive phones so easily smudged while cheaper phones are better at looking clean? Matte black iPhone 7 will resist fingerprints better than jet black but it still gets them. And remember iPhone 5's Scruffgate? While Note7 and jet black iPhone 7 are smudge and scratch magnets! We pay top dollar and they end up looking bad within 5 minutes.
2016 turned out fairly disappointing. Just wasting money on them. Neither S7 edge or Note7 seem practical with a useless dual edge display that are open to crackings since the sides are so exposed and slippery. Placeholders for Project YOUM announced in CES 2013.The real breakthrough year should be in 2017. The 2016 flagships are rehashes and baby steps.
LG G5, V20 - LG foolishly puts small batteries in them. Ugly camera visor humps. LG needs another year to refine modular designs.
HTC 10 - HTC shouldn't be taken seriously anymore. Ho-hum design. They peaked with the M7 in design and M8 in battery life and overall hardware.
Samsung S7 edge, Note7 - I would argue they should be ranked top 2, but there is a rumor dual edge should be standard for the S8. Say goodbye to flat screens as more useless dual displays with exposed sides will be common and lose its design luster. Then we have foldable screens coming that can actually protect the screen when closed. Note7 has all these issues that should be corrected by Note8. Removable battery next time, Samsung, to avoid another expensive recall.
Apple iPhone 7 / 7 Plus - I think the 2X optical zoom on the 7+ seems cool but the removal of the headphone and replacing the physical home button with a doorbuzzer are buzzkill. Add features Android had for years, slap sexy black options which attract fingerprints, and call it iPhone 7. The iPhone 8 is the real upgrade thanks to Apple finally reducing the height. I don't like glass but Apple will make it the best looking glass phone ever made.
Wait for Project Valley which should change the game for phablets, tablets, and wearables. Samsung Galaxy Wing, S8, and Note8 with 4K displays are coming. Maybe a worthy Nokia Android flagship too with hopefully removable battery. Don't waste your money on any of these placeholders and planned obsolescence products or you will start to feel buyer's remorse by the time Mobile World Congress happens in six months.
AnonD-394351, 09 Sep 2016This review section is hardly any help at all. Just a bunch of kids fighting among themselves ... moreif you are looking for mature feedback, then look elsewhere. im amazed at how emotional some people get on the internet...about a phone...which they have never owned...
People with the technical knowledge that you are looking for generally dont speak on these senseless threads. and even if they do, the less informed will bash them due to their lack of reasoning and understanding.
i hope i didnt burst your bubble, but its probably too late to hope for that anyway...im looking forward to the upcoming months to see how the battery fix pans out though...fyi...im a happy note 3 user
