Can anyone confirm whether does it have IR Blaster in this model? I am looking for phone only with infrared remote builtin for making my phone remote control for my home appliances.
PARAG B, 31 Aug 2016dude he is just a blind fanboy of Note7I don't have a GN5 or S6 so can't compare them with my GN7 for photo quality.... GSMarena says / shows the GN7 is better that the GN5 so I'll accept that.
Do you agree with me now that the 9MP setting has the same image quality as the 12MP setting on the GN7?
12MP image dimensions are 4032x3024... at 9MP it is 4032x2268.
The GN7 simply cuts off a depth of 378 pixels along the top and bottom to get a 16:9 image ratio so the image quality must be the same.
Missing ir blaster & fingerprint magnet only couple of disappointments
everything else rocks!!!

The marketing angle of it is to build nice phones with mediocre software. But, it sure works.
Note 7 after 2 years will be just like my note 4. Laggy, freezes, battery issues, turns off by itself. Worst part is batt is not replaceable on note 7.
Even if u never drop and take good care of your note 7, once there isa note 9 or 10 in the future, they will find a way to screw your phone's software like they did on my note 4.
I do work for Samsung and I've been paying attention to all the troubleshooting steps and the problems I have been dealing with since I got there, and always seems to be that customers bought their products and they don't even know how to use it, then they call Samsung requesting and complaining about things they made by themselves.

I did have a mediaserver battery drain (30-50%) but this is solved by turning off google chrome.

HONESTLY,that's even faster than having to press the home/power button, swipe the screen, align my eyes to look into the camera, and then my device unlocks.
I've assigned the iris scanner for my secret folder which I've installed my Msecure app that stores my passwords. But other than that, opening the Note7 with just pressing that home button is the FASTEST.

Where the gn7/s7 wins by a long long way is lower light (video and pics). This is always the true test of a good camera. Check the tests if you still don't believe me.
Edit. As I discussed below the 9MP GN7 has identical image quality to the 12MP GN7 (horizontal resolution stays the same, a strip of pixels is removed from the top and bottom to make a 16:9 image ratio)

PARAG B, 30 Aug 2016what! now you are expecting me to like 9mp vs 16mp photos ...Dude are you serious?LOLHave a look at the camera shoot out by gsmarena... The 12MP GN7 beats the 16MP GN5 in all areas apart from macro. The image quality of the 9MP photos is IDENTICAL to the 12MP photos... All they do is crop a strip at the top and bottom... Horizontal resolution stays the same. So yes... The 9MP GN7 beats the 16MP GN5 without a doubt.
Just read on Androidheadlines.com that loads of having crashing problems with the Note 7 plus Over Heating Issues,so Samsung like i have said before i just rushed out the Note 7 just to pressure on the New Apple iPhone 7 models

Samsung will likely take that out, and introduce something the Note7 doesn't have in hardware. Pressure input at last?
Then there's the UFS card slot that didn't make it to the Note7. And likely a 17MP camera with F/1.7.

I highly doubt they will take away the SD card again since they've realized it bumped up sales. There's really no significant feature that the Note 7 offers to take away in 8.
If anything, 8 will offer the performance gains to make it worth getting it over the 5 (which doesn't seem to be offer enough power/performance advantages).
Any type of software improvements 7 has will end up on 5 anyways. But Note 7 is plenty worth it for those coming from version 4 and under.

If you don't like it just use the 9MP 16:9 option... There is no difference in image quality because the horizontal pixels are the same... Either way the 9MP or 12MP setting on the GN7 beats the 16MP GN5 in good or low light.
