Still have some hope for this phone once everything gets cleared and the dust settles.
Note7 problems -
Bad RAM management
Scratches easily on both sides
Exploding battery (1 out of 42K)
Reboot loop on Exynos versions
The exploding battery isn't a major qualm for me since Type C is a new standard and fast charging does make a phone HOT when charging. Neither does an S-Pen getting stuck. But this is a $900 phone. Problems like that shouldn't exist. Maybe on a $100 phone, we should have far higher tolerance with flaws. Not for a phone that cost nearly a grand.
Still, I read a thread in Android Central "if people will leave Note7 and where will you go if you did?" Most said they still LOVE their Note7 and will be staying put. Note7 is kinda like the iPhone 4 where it is heavily loved and criticized. Like Kobe or LeBron. Polarizing. Love or hate or both. Love and hate, you can still admire some of their greatness.
Even with Note7's glaring issues, you can't deny it having a great display, camera, and aesthetically pleasing design. Also the many other features it already has.That's the love part. The hate part is the stuff I listed above and being overpriced. Note7 is most polarizing and maligned smartphone I have seen since iPhone 4.
It is now a matter of faith if you still believe in the Note7. Testing your faith and loyalty. There isn't any other 2016 flagship I want but a Note7. It checkmarks all the needs for me. The rest look inferior to me which includes LG V20, iPhone 7, and Google Pixel (Nexus Marlin) or whatever they will call it. Either Note7 or getting back into video games.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2016Camera is no need to change. It seems like the iPhone 7 will get the same camera as S7 and S7 ... moreBut LG and Sony lack a lot of awesome features which are only available in Samsung.
AnonD-183089, 03 Sep 2016Samsung now is loosing its business because of this device by recalling its units of note 7 be... moreme too! Man however Note7 is currently having lots of issues but samsung took a wise step to recall all the units and get there sh!t together.In the mean while Iphone7 and Iphone 7 plus is going to take some advantage of the situation but we all know that there is not going to be anything very special abt Iphones like everytime .
However I am more intrested abt LG V20 as it is going to be the another best alternative to Note7 but LG V20 sud have the best specs (like rumored specs of 4000 mah battery ,20mp sensor with atleast f1.7 apreture,6gb Ram and apart from 64gb the 128gb modals sud also be available ) in the market to beat the Note7's spen and Amoled screen and water and dust proofing and premium built of Note7. lets hope for the best.
Btw some one here hates if people talk abt other compiting smartphones as it hurts his Note7 fanboy feelings LOL.
mir, 03 Sep 2016Give it up, mate. You simply don't know what you're talking about.but you will still not not mind your own buisness.Right?
Stop pretending to be smartass. cause u know what? you are not .LOL
AnonD-77443, 03 Sep 2016Ok, lets ignore the GN5, V20 etc. Do you agree that the 9MP 16:9 has the same image quality... moreare you serious abt asking me that question again?LOL...Go be in your Note7 fanboy mode being real is not your cup of the tea. & Why sud i not talk abt Note5 or LG v20 ? does it hurt you?
I was waiting for note7 but for battery issues I m confused,either I ll go for it not,plz any1 suggest me in my point of view there is no smart phone as I like most like n7, now I'm using s7e.if note7 ok than may I go for it...and also I'm angry to samsung for delaing about n7 in Bangladesh.
samsung is drown into a deep sea by battery exploides & recall issue.......shame.....shame....shame samsung
Well, as per Samsung's order for a recall of every Note7 sold before China market, I'm giving back mine this week - after two weeks of use.
My Telco is giving me a choice of availing another "similar" device. Any other device would just be behind - why would I want an S7 Edge?
With just that faulty battery, the camera, S Pen, Super AMOLED display, battery performance/efficiency, auto-maintenance, fingerprint scanner are performing as good as expected.
I'm getting it back the Note7 in any case.
AnonD-77443, 03 Sep 2016I went from the GN4 to the GN7 mainly for the camera.
My baby daughter is 3 months and i nee... moreCongrats mate. Same as me. Expecting my first child in January.
If it is true what the Anom said above then I may stick to the IPhone 7 but I will wait & see.
& in reply to the Anom, I wouldn't touch an LG, know a few people that have them & had nothing but issues here in the UK but XZ does interest me. But if the iPhone 7 does have the same Samsung camera & Apple make good use of the dual lens on the 7 Plus then I could be sold.
AnonD-539116, 03 Sep 2016I went for iPhone because I wanted something that played music very well. Had an iPod classic ... moreCamera is no need to change. It seems like the iPhone 7 will get the same camera as S7 and S7 Edge and Note7. So that means, 7 Plus camera will be better because of 2 modules. Only if you wait for S8 you can change. New Xperia XZ also has good camera as well as LG G5 I think

My baby daughter is 3 months and i need a mobile camera that is great in low light :-)
It is superb imho but so are 1 or two other phones.
The battery issue is disappointing but with 50,000+ GN7 phones sold in Australia not 1 has had a problem. I am leaning towards keeping it despite the recall but will see.
Samsung now is loosing its business because of this device by recalling its units of note 7 because of charging issues :( really its a big hit for samsung i was planning to get this device :(
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2016Not to mention that the iPhone had issues with exploding batteries and didn't issue a recall.
... moreHere, many things are not given
1. Was the iPhone jailbroken?
2. Did he charge it with a non-certified wall plug or cable?
3. Did this fat case he used not allow the heat to conduct right?
And also, this is only one report of something like that. With the Galaxy Note7, there were about 40 reports just a few days after the release of the phone so this is a big difference
Megerd, 03 Sep 2016Are those the only things you can come up to against android? You probably don't know tech tha... moreSo what did I do wrong. I'm 99% sure I know more about tech than you since I'm interested in phones of every kind since years and you are probably the typical Samsung fanboy who says "most Android phones have 8 cores and 4GB Ram, so they are better than iPhone with 2 cores and 2GB Ram"

Bit ironic that... moreI went for iPhone because I wanted something that played music very well. Had an iPod classic for years so decided on the iPhone 3GS.
Find it strange that I am now considering my next phone based on camera & I use my fiancées GS6 to take pictures so was going to go for the N7 but waiting now.

I agree that iPhones are easy to use.

I would change if I needed a SD card but I'm happy with my 64gb as it is.
The thing that I don't get is that people were saying for years 'Nokia is the best, so easy to use!!'', Apple have continued with an easy to use Smartphone & people are saying that it's to easy!
