The iris scanner novelty wore off quickly for me. The fingerprint unlock is faster and more convenient whereby you don't have to position your phone properly. I know how the iris scanner would be useful if like when wearing gloves, or your fingers are dirty.
Even accessing the Secret Folder is faster accessed with a fingerprint press - perhaps the iris scanner is more secure for the Secret Folder if you are sharing your device with your spouse.
My nephew was easily impressed when I was using it - "like Ironman".
This is to rightly say a lag n most apps start or close or multitasking restart! Actually did it 2hours iphone6s pink. Why at this height of popularity, Sammy you have to re write its software or Refund. If its hardware fault then non repairable, otherwise software update now dud do, until this becomes chronic. Over confidence is to blame too.
absolut-allen, 24 Aug 2016I've been reading quite a lot of reviews (user and pro) that the phone still has a good amount... moreAs per my experience, there are no 1 or 2-second "lag" using the Note7. Not even a half-second "lag" switching in between apps. The going viewing of pictures stored on the microSD card is snappy.
I didn't see how microSD was somehow "not compatible" with UFS 2.0.
So far, I'm getting greater milage on the battery than I thought.
ooooo my God samsung just foool you people . i see the feature thst u can use 720p resolution !!! it is very funnny u can t see any difference i promise all of you maybe just 1pct or 2 pct. when u use 720p ,display part just work like 1440p and all of pixels work together but only part that work less than 1440p mode is cpu/gpu ui renderer that don' t make big difference on 3500 mah battery. it is just good for gaming i say just for gaming!

There's also videos with side by side use with the same apps, and Note 7 barely beat the Note 5 in tests - and no I'm not talking benchmarks which provide generic results.
What's up with that?
Y wd samsung focus on producing curved screen dat doesn't fit in with tempered glass n yet it is less scratch resistant. Being shatter proof doesnt mean users use their phone as a hammer. I hate seeing scratches on my phone screen. This phone is a very big NO for me.
Bunyip22, 24 Aug 2016Media server has been using 20 to 30 pct of my battery the last 2 days... Any ideas? Strange. My media server only goes 2 to 4%. Have you checked your app power monitor that shows how much percentage per hour usage? It's under the battery usage interface. You might see which app is the culprit.
My device is the Exynos version, and all my analysis of 4 discharge cycles tell me I can get over 8 to 9 hours SOT over a 17:30 hours usage, with around 1.2 to 1.5 GB using wifi only. I have not tried connecting to LTE data. That's full usage of the battery, and it can match what I need.
I wonder why reviewers are reporting 4 to 5 hours SOT. I'm getting that result at the 50% mark.
droidMinority, 21 Aug 2016Who in their right mind has 300+ apps?!Count the system APP and you will see how many you have or accumulate

ahmed tanveer, 23 Aug 2016I have to say= You NAILED it.Wow! you had so much free time to write all that!!! neither apple or samsung are going to pay you for doing so. use whatever phone you like. stop writing essays dude.
[deleted post]Thank you for agreeing that any type of glass breaks. Additional glass at the back is illogical.
Wireless charging to add stress to the battery resulting in faster degradation, and therefore is illogical.
Curved glass edges are just asking to be broken in just one accidental drop. Well, this is what the majority of you were asking for.
I would like to order it from Samsung Canada... but their website is broken. Anyone could tell them? http://www.samsung.com/ca/consumer/mobile-devices/smartphones/galaxy-note/galaxy-note7/shop/
Oh and by the way, Note 7 really rocks! If you own an S7, there is no need for an upgrade, you'll be fine, especially if you like your actual TouchWiz.
If you own any other phone, you should consider to upgrade to the Note 7.

A wide strip of packing tape removes the shattered glass risk.. even if it is just for a week till you replace or repair it. Repairing is a lot cheaper than replacing a phone.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 19 Aug 2016Well, so much for Gorilla Glass 5 being unbreakable "80 percent" of the time.

Here you are and enjoy:

Like using a car with cracked windshield and dents all over the body.
Better off dead phone than using it with a broken screen that might injure the fingers.
And the story is, which phone cracks first and suffer more scratches.
mir, 24 Aug 2016You forgot the fact thay the Note 7 kept on working despite having a smashed screen.ha ha yep, good point. The GN7 still worked after a 3m drop the GN5 and iPhone 6s were stuffed.
Personally drop tests from the hand aren't accurate enough because each phone falls/lands differently each time. There is one site that does drop tests mechanically which is a lot more accurate.
