Pedro-TheNeighbor, 29 Aug 2016Yes, you can. You need to be accurate make sure the SIM is really glued securely into the micr... moreOnce you glued the SIM card and the microSD card together, it is a non-reversible process, you cannot use them separately anymore. What if someday I want to use the microSD card to the plastic phone Note 3 and keep using the SIM card to the brittle Note 7?
Note7 is just the same as G S7 edge with a spen I hated s7 and s7 edge for its camera and was afraid that samsung sud not adapt the same camera for Note 7 but that is exactly what has happened plus there is no flat screen version.So all in all waterproofing, Sd card slot and extra 500mah battery are the only things going in favour of Note7 but for me all of these advantages become not so important than a Camera on my Smartphone..
.bigger f1.7 apreture is good for low light but that does not mean that i have to live with 12mp squarish low detailed ( than Note5) daytime photos and sheaky videos which is a disadvantage for s7 s7 edge and now the Note7 as well.
Although i am going to get Note7 shortly as there is no other better smartphone rightnow However i still feel that note5 is still a great device .plus note5 does not have scratch prone gorilla glass screen like of note7
note5 has excellent daytime camera which is better than note7's camera .
Note5 does not have the useless (shatter prone) edges like Note7.
Spen works better on a flat screen note5 not on edge screen .
Note5 is still a very fast and multitasking phone with its 4gb ram and 2.1ghz processor.Note5 has 64gb & 128gb modals.
Note7 sud have had 20mp (or atleast 16mp) camera with the f/1.7 apreture (for low light) and full 16:9 aspect ratio instead of square photos which looks ugly on a smart tvs which mainly has 16:9 aspect ratio.
Note7 sud have had a flat screen modal.
Note7 sud have had a 6gb ram plus 128gb modal for the price samsung is asking us to pay.
absolut-allen, 30 Aug 2016Agreed. That's why I think the Note sold s9 well this time around due to those wanting to upgr... moreThe problem with Samsung is they haven't been consistent with features of their product. They have put out some interesting features that are taken out by the next generation. It's likely they have started to make tech slumps every other year because they seem to be running out of tech innovations.
Making the S6 and Note.5 flagships unattractive and not selling to Europe was the strategy to make us want the next generation. They starve us first.
So,I predict that next year's Note would have a significant feature taken out, while some new ones are introduced. I know it doesn't make sense. Unlike Apple who keep features they've introduced from previous iPhones.
I've got the Note 7, switching over from an iPhone 6S Plus. I don't understand what all the hype has been about this phone's display and camera, because from my experience thus far with both devices, the iPhone clearly has the superior display and camera. I've asked friends and family to compare them, too, and all agree with me. Needless to say, I will be going back to the far better iPhone.

That's why I think the Note sold s9 well this time around due to those wanting to upgrade their older Notes. I haven't seen anything riveting enough to take the jump from the 5 so I'll be in line for the 8 for sure.
mrkabbazi, 30 Aug 2016I dont see any dramatic superiority with previous galaxy notes. Considering the price, note 7 ... moreCompared to the GN5 the major benefits of the GN7 are water proofing and micro SD card. Not important to some people but the missing SD card stopped me getting the GN5.
On top of this there are the usual improvements to appearance, battery life, performance, camera, software etc etc.
If you have a GN5 and don't need IP or SD the GN7 may not be warranted but it is a massive jump up on the GN4 imho.
Bunyip22, 24 Aug 2016Media server has been using 20 to 30 pct of my battery the last 2 days... Any ideas? MEDIA SERVER BATTERY DRAIN SOLVED.
Media server has been a big drain (25-50%) for nearly 2 weeks. I tried a heap of things, deleted movies, pics, music but nothing worked. Doing some googling and i found a youtube video that said the S7 media server drain was from Google Chrome. I have reverted to the Samsung web browser this morning (which is pretty nice) and the MEDIA SERVER BATTERY DRAIN IS GONE!! :-)
Obviously this doesn't happen to everyone but its pretty poor that a major app like chrome has a major flaw.
I dont see any dramatic superiority with previous galaxy notes. Considering the price, note 7 is even a fail.

If you add more MP to a small mobile sensor you get more noise (those square artefacts that are obvious in low light). Samsung has opted to go a large f1.7 aperture instead (let's in more liight) which has resulted in a great low light camera... I'm glad it's not 16MP.
G Chand, 29 Aug 2016Hahahaha that's right they gave 12mp cam in s7 and note 7 so when they launch note 8 and s8 than people have some reason to buy those latest phones!otherwise who would buy.cause phone tech has reached a place where very little improvement is possible now...10 years ago each year the phone became rwice faster and twice better camera.now upper limit is reached.they have to play tricks to make you buy more
Farcry 5, 29 Aug 2016Pedro the neighbor..what u think im should upgrade from Note 4 to Note 7?
The only thing i ... moreI've admired the Note 4, yet I felt out had not enough features to make me jump from my Note 3.
Water-resistance alone should not be the sole reason to upgrade. There's the wickedly fast-focusing super-sharp excellent camera, more internal memory, excellent fingerprint unlocking, S Pen greatly improved, and HDR playback
Iris scanning is slower and less convenient than a fingerprint scan, putting glass as a rear material is stupid, wireless charging is a waste of time, sealed battery means spending more money for replacing it when it starts giving shorter life per charge, and no way you can have extended battery that will DIRECTLY power the device.
You'll miss the Infrared remote functions, user battery replacement, and sturdier back.
Another gigantic phone. Why can't they make a small phone about 4.6", dual SIM, removable battery and stylus and radio (better still with DAB radio!)
In Next Note Model, Samsung should increse the width of phone upto 78.5 mm, as it improves the reading text on the phone.
CrossMKD, 28 Aug 2016600$ vs 1100$ (V20 Vs Note7) Yes i would say the LG is with ``normal`` descent price vs the Sa... moreIt has (first ever phone having)cgg5 on both sides,brighest phone,(first ever phone with)dual edge screen,(too much)improved s pen,IP68 certified(dust and water proof),sAMOLED 5.7 inches(big) screen,1440×2560 pixels(518 ppi pixel density),(first ever and improved)grace ui,always on display,exynos 8890 chipset(octa core with great benchmark),mali-T880m12(great gpu),4 gb ram with 64 gb rom,expandable storage,same cameras of S7E(which won a lot of awards for camera),better li-po battery,(first ever Samsung phone with)type c connector,(first ever phone with)iris scanner which is great,SpO2,fast charging,wireless charging,3500mAh(large battery),HDR display.
It is not name which people are paying for(in case of Note 7).
Yeah.It is expensive(almost 950$) but worth every penny.
Iris scanner is a great feature.Don't degrade it.
If i had a 500$ or so,i would choose oneplus 3,mate 8 or p9 plus.
But not lg.
My Galaxy Note7 encountered touch screen problems! I need an update to fix it soon.
Pedro the neighbor..what u think im should upgrade from Note 4 to Note 7?
The only thing i like about Note 7 is waterproof.
utt, 29 Aug 2016Any chance we use 2 sims and memory card in the dual sim model as modified on the s6 edge+ dual? Yes, you can. You need to be accurate make sure the SIM is really glued securely into the microSD card.
