AnonD-280781, 04 Sep 2016Do not buy samsung phones , and you will not have problems﻿Btw i want Note 7 when released in Malaysia i think
I just saw the Note7 here in Baguio, Philippines, because we didn't get it nationwide retailers until first week of September. Lovely device. The screen really made me go wow along with the design. Camera seemed stellar. So I am not one of the Note7 haters. It can be polarizing smartphone but it doesn't take away some of its greatness whether you love it or hate it.
I was 50/50 going with either Note7 or PS4 slim and I told myself screw it. Note7 is just too lustworthy to ignore. The Note7 is kinda like iPhone 4 and HTC One M7 to me. The 4s corrected the 4. The M8 corrected the M7. The Note8 will likely correct the Note7 flaws. I just don't get why Samsung didn't future proof it enough with a newer SoC and only 4gb RAM. Same specs we saw six months ago with the S7. Note 3 and 4 had updated specs than their S4 and S5 counterparts. Note5 and Note7 didn't really improve the S-line half a year later.
I think the Note7 still seems like a great device although it earned some notoriety with the battery recall, XDA's mentioning it lags, and easy to scratch screen. I just believe alot of the issues could have been avoided had Samsung NOT listen to the DESIGN DESIGN DESIGN whining. Corning messed it with the display. Samsung messed up putting another glass rear with a sealed battery. And not updating the specs from the S series like the Note 1 through 4 did.
Alot of people who own the Note7 is going through a honeymoon phase and kinda blinded by its beauty like those early iPhone 4 and HTC One M7 owners. Excuses and in denial. After the honeymoon phase is over, those glaring issues starts to look bigger over time whether laggy software, scratches, and shorter battery than the S7 edge. Still a great device but no longer the unanimous best smartphone of 2016.
If you can overlook the flaws, it might arguably still be the most lustworthy IT smartphone of 2016 because of its jaw dropping design, display, and best in class camera. There is no other smartphone flagship of 2016 that interest me except this Note7. Not even the similar designed S7 edge either. Controversies and flaws aside, this is still the phone to lust for in 2016. It's just so irresistible for being the sexiest Note ever made...
AnonD-550733, 04 Sep 2016Wow what a solution!
Samsung is not the only company in the world. the choice is huge . e.g. better wait for new LG v20

[deleted post]You are semi correct, note 7 isn't launched in regular sales, but you could already have it in preorders, i got mine 02.09.

Bunyau engau Mujap, 04 Sep 2016U dont know about Note 7 news? That is EPLOSIONS PROBLEM!!!Do not buy samsung phones , and you will not have problems﻿
How about the recent news of a recall. What's the update on that? Anyone in the Philippines who encountered the same scenario?

The Note 4 was perfect - utilitarian and best in specs. After that came the disappointment 5 with only 32 GB version sold in most markets WITHOUT the 64 GB version - without memory expansion and removable battery.
And here comes the Note7 having the battery issue being blamed (i think it's about Type C cable with the battery being incompatible with fast charging). If it was just the battery, the only thing to do is to easily supply new REMOVABLE battery.
You're right about Samsung following fashionistas in wanting some fragile thing inn their pockets. They hardly even use the S Pen for practical applications like sketching or jotting notes.
AnonD-550733, 04 Sep 2016You will be able to buy note 7 in October(most probably).I think i will wait to jan 2017 to be sure that all the units with that flaw already replaced in the market
Bunyau engau Mujap, 04 Sep 2016U dont know about Note 7 news?
That is EPLOSIONS PROBLEM!!!I know about it.
Samsung are working on it and I don't think that they will take one or two year in solving it.
The more they delay,the more lose they will face.
So,I think they will start to sell note 7 again in mid October.

The problem started last year when Samsung decided to listen to the fashionista segment who whined about Samsung's DESIGN and BUILD QUALITY for years in 2013-2014. Majority of strangers don't notice or even care what phone another person is holding. I certainly don't.
I really hope Samsung learns from this and bring back removable battery to the Note line. The J series have it. Why can't the Note? They could have easily avoided losing more money had it just been a battery recall and not trying to replace the entire device. I could live with faux leather back or matte plastic as long as they are replaceable.
Note series was supposed to be a PRODUCTIVITY device. Not some "planned obsolescence fashion accessory" that Apple users treat their iPhone as before getting disposed in two years. This glass rear stuff, non-removable battery, and no sd slot is complete nonsense that Apple tried to go backwards with the industry.
But by Samsung going style over substance, fashion over function last year, this is what happens. Explosion inside the phones and Samsung's wallets. The phone fashionistas don't know jack about tech. As long as it is pretty design and in a pretty color, they will buy it. The practical users are more forward thinking with the features and usage.
Go back to being practical again, Samsung. I hope LG and Nokia troll Samsung for this since they still maintained their practicality and common sense. Removable battery, please? I don't want to base my usage by the lifespan of a sealed battery. And if the rear breaks, I can replace it too. Samsung lost their practical edge by going edge...

I think its not abo... moreFor example, maybe some people have manipulated the devices and are deceiving Samsung.
But that is not that likely. I wonder, why something like that never happened in the labotary tests.
Here are some examples of how Samsung could have made a better device:
-The camera's purpose is not being a part of the design language. I suggest, that the Galaxy S8 will have a frameless camera, where the lens is barely visible on the black colour variant.
-2160p@60fps (smooth + detail; 30fps to spare at half playback speed), 1440p@180fps, 1080p@240fps (a quarter playback speed, and you have still got those smooth sixty frames per second to spare!) , 720p@480fps (wasn't there an 1080p@480fps MT6795?
-Unlimited burst shots (100 is a large improvement to thirty, and is mostly enough, and the S7 shoots at 22 photos per second, which is really unbeatably fast, but why not contiune shooting at 101 photos, but at a lower speed, which is better than Nothing?
-Physical Camera Shutter button (which allows reserving volume keys for video recording)
- 8 GB RAM and 5000+ mAh battery (I do not care about thickness!)
But I wonder, how much the next year's Note 8 (this post was written in 2016) will cause confusion with the Note 8.0-Tablet from early 2013.
pros.. s-pen , good camera , good display , good battery !
cons... exploding . edge style . not optimised
