the best phone of the world. note7 is a lot better than s7 edge and 6s Plus, perfect phone for me, has a perfect Super AMOLED Screen

I just bought the pro tools of Autodesk Sketchbook, and the Note7's S Pen just flies! The new synthetic brushes and blending brushes are just wonderful! (For the artists out there)
The pin-point accuracy is well-worth my getting a Note7. the smaller tip lets me do more details. Hand writing has been more enjoyable. Creating thin and thick lines and airbrush control is smooth with the 4096 levels of pressure control.
No way I'm getting any smartphone with at least an active Wacom digitizer (S Pen). If Samsung is coming up with tilt input next year, I'll be getting that - my experience with Apple's Pencil on the iPad Pro is really positive with tilt input.
Checking the built-in battery meter, Sketchbook actually uses 6 to 7% for using it for 3 hours. The other battery monitor strangely registers it as .1%.

Apparently the digitiser ramps up to 340hz when the Spen is used; that would increment the power used by Android or System (or something more generic than the Sketch software).
good job keeping on it..
best to learn our new toys once and then happily rely on their performance..
even with gps off, the phone pings wifi and gps regularly unless we dig up all the esoteric little places it has options setup to 'keep them active' (even without them showing).
having run hidden networks for years, I have seen the huge drain that can be made constantly looking for the 'hidden network'.
I do believe our phones will yield better runtimes in a week or so-once Android settles a bit ;-)
AnonD-367917, 29 Aug 2016Pedro, I keep having responses 'moderated' away to some black hole at the back of the couch...... moreThey only power saving thing I do is to keep the screen brightness to 50%, GPS off. Everything else are on.
On pure LTE data, it lasted 7:51H, 5:48H SOT, with 1 GB consumed. Mixed with
YouTube, surfing, drawing on Sketchbook, and Spotify via Bluetooth headset.
I thought drawing Sketchbook was the culprit, however the chart shows it only consumed .1% if the total power used.
It's not hitting the over 8 hours SOT via Wi-Fi. LTE does take up more. That's more than 2.5 hours or 30% less than while connected to Wi-Fi.
I'm really looking at the Screen On Time. Note7 seems to have a good job at keeping the battery at minimal drain when it's not being used. Looks like it is giving 6 to 6.5 hours SOT on a charge.
That's my usual personal usage scenario whereby I'm mostly on YouTube and internet browsing - not into games. Games or heavy downloads will drastically shorten SOT, and overall battery as short as 6 hours.
As for taking care of the battery, maintain the charge not lower than 40% for better life cycles. I charge once it hits 50%. If you keep deep draining, expect the usual claimed 300 to 500 charging cycles. If you maintain the battery not reaching not less than 50%, you can prolong the battery to last 1200 cycles.
Now I have to be carrying a powerbank all the time until Zerolemon comes out with an integrated battery case of 8500 mAh.
Looks like someone is not getting the Note7 with the amount of rants.

You're right, paying $1000+ doesn't make sense - if you don't need or use the above features. Note7 is currently the best smartphone, V10 is but a shadow - well-deserved $600 pricing.
AnonD-316697, 28 Aug 2016Thanks, But no thanks
Your answer isn't even close to what I ask.
and that's not an answer, ... moreI have had it happen where a response doesn't actually respond to the person it was intended for.
Given no one else responded to you,.. I am guessing you had an issue with my 'article'.
If you actually noted what I wrote,.. there was three or four paragraphs helping you as a consumer to figure out whether a Note was shortlist worthy for you,.. and four paragraphs giving you 'user experience' / my take on the phone.
Not sure which you had issue reading; but both tacts were reasonable based on what you asked..
Given most people in forums can either be 'fanpeople' of their chosen product, I took a fairly neutral approach and tried to respond in a way that mattered to you...
To actually help you to make up your mind with regards to purchasing a fairly expensive phone.
Based on you sharp response, I feel I overwhelmed you/ or you didn't actually want a reasoned response/ you don't want to hear positivity about the new Notes..
This phone smashes the Note 5 out of the park; and is highly recommended if you are considering a Note purchase! (Simple enough?!)

It has been frustrating as I have written a couple of responces confirming the value of what you have written.
Today; when another person noted the bickering and pointlessness that fills these forums, I tried to chip in that valuable contributions (like yours' with regards to power usage across screen resolutions) get deleted due to a small minority who devalue the whole thread/forum.
Hoping this isn't another one that 'doesn't make it', as I genuinely would like to reassure you that your comments are valued.
On topic of battery consumption...
There are a few areas in the phone to turn off 'inspect networks',.. even with Wifi and bluetooth (and GPS turned 'off') default settings on the phone have these things running in the background.
I encourage you to go through and look for all the areas (I found three or four) where these can be properly disabled. Whilst it won't net you significantly extra time, it might just help.
I find pretty good runtimes,.. though I try to keep the screen off a lot.
Standard stuff like tuning all webforums to use a grey or 'dark' palette can help the OLED screen (power consumption lessened)...
I know you are an experienced user, and this stuff might not help you.. many people do read these forums.
Good work for sharing your efforts with regards to power consumption; i did get to read them when they were 'up'.
AnonD-97895, 28 Aug 2016600$ vs 1100$ (V20 Vs Note7) Yes i would say the LG is with ``normal`` descent price vs the Sa... moreFirst of all the Note 7 isn't $1100. And then you're comparing apples to oranges with the V20. If you didn't know, the Note series is for people who use the "pen" and have the extra software multitasking purposes related to the pen. You're on the wrong comment section. Run along to the Galaxy S7 Edge forum if you want to run your comparisons.
Why does the S7 and Note 7 have a 12mp camera? That means my Samsung galaxy J5 has a better camera and is cheaper
After 1 day with the new note 7, have to say, objectively and subjectively the best phone for me. The edge isn't difficult to manage at all. However my girlfriend does find it awkward to hold without accidentally tapping on something. I don't understand why lol.
As for performance, smoothest son of a b samsung has ever put out, period.
The camera is excellent. Nothing more to say. The display is amazing as is usual with samoled. I find that the 4gb ram is so far good enough to handle my multitasking needs but i do admit, 6gb would have probably been better.
Samsung should try and be upgrading there battery capacity, a phone with 4gb ram and with just 3500amh that ain't good at all.Try fix the ba3 to something high at least 5000amh
[deleted post]It gets pretty serious sometimes... to be fair it isn't even a full handful of users that creates most of the mess. (A few logins no doubt)....
Yesterday I wrote a response to one of the silly comments, directed at a longtime forum goer who,had supplied some excellent research on battery usage. This was brilliant work, trying out differing screen resolutions and was, to the best of my knowledge, the first place this info existed.
And a douche in here attacked them for spending so much time on their phone.
Whilst my polite comment was moderated out, the origional poster of 'worthwhile content', simply deleted their work given.
I have had most comments attempting to moderate in these threads removed (clearly my intent is to attack all readers!). Whilst perpetrators keep logging in under a stack of different names.
Some even spoof the login details and photos of long time regulars...
I have sent emails direct to the website (moderators) explaining what is likely to happen if they don't get on top of this...
Long time members whombuild the community positively and add 'substance' will leave.
In fact, I have people dummy spit at me, and leave- believing that I was logging in with multiple accounts and arguing with myself.....
Truth is the number of people doing this are few,.. and I have left for years at a time, generally whenever they are taking aim at whichever phone I presently have.
They actually hate the phone they don't have, until they get it, and then their vehemence turns on 'the ignorant few' who don't see how awesome their 'new phone' is.
My biggest issue is the number of posts (and number of accounts with high post counts) that one person in particular uses, as it makes them seem way more mature than they actually are...
Anyhow, this post will most likely be reported and 'moderated' away... so... share that domain again?!
To make Record straight, No 6gb ram, nor 128gb internal. Why shud sammy discriminate, One thing about colors shortage, not good, in middle east asia, never to see coral blue, maybe nxt year when demand finished, then launch.
