AnonD-430264, 25 Aug 2016I'd have to partly agree with that. Why are people driving quarter million dollar sports cars,... moreYes, but snartphone "flagships" sell in the millions. I'd rather be using an Asus Zenfone of 1/3 the price of flagship devices, if there is no active digitizer pen on a Galaxy Note.
Half of the people getting a Note don't use the pen.

The first drop was on the back. The GN5 had a spiderweb of cracks right across the back, the GN7 fewer cracks which were on the corners and up the edge.
Either way you put it to survive 50 face down drops is awesome.
The other video showed the GN7 surviving a 3m+ drop and remaining functional.
This testing shows the GN7 to survive drop tests a lot better than your GN5.
ps t cool, why do you post as anonymous?
AnonD-77443, 24 Aug 2016Depending on weather you drop on an edge, corner back, side etc you will always get different ... moreBut not up to the fourth drop where Note 7 is already suffering lots of cracks and scratches even in just second drop at normal calling height. While Note 5 remains intact with no scratch. Only up to the fourth drop are likely to happen with NORMAL use, fifth drop is close to impossible with normal user.
Nobody will drop his phone for FIVE times at that height as in the video.

Why are people driving quarter million dollar sports cars, why buy a Rolex when all it does is show the time, why wear brand name clothes when you can buy clothes at a thrift store, why build a custom computer with a high-end flashy case (LED fans and lights), why buy a brushed aluminum stove when it does the same thing as a regular white stove?
I can go on and on. The point is; when you offer a flagship phone, it not only needs to look the part but also act the part. The Note is the Ferrari of the Samsung phones and it needs to play that role in technology and looks.

Putting another 100% of glass for the rear is making the case markers and Samsung to have some extra earnings from repairs, or the lack of repairing the phone (just buy another).
Well, this is in part the people who don't like plastic... Now we're all putting plastic cases - the irony.
I wonder when this trend will end. News is that Apple is going back to glass sandwich design again. What a trend...
PhoneBuff on youtube does the best drop tests. They are totally mechanical so the drops are always identical. The link below compares the iPhone 6s to the GN7. The iphone died after 5 face drops... the GN7 was still going after 50 face drops. The S7 died after 1 face drop.
As far as drop test durability goes, the GN7 ranked 3rd of all the phones they have tested... iPhone 6S was 5th..... the GN5 was a distant 8th..... WELL DONE SAMSUNG :-)
Note 7 drop test is below.
Note 5 drop test is below.

Take NOTE, the Note.5 in the video STOPPED working after the front face drop, while a Note7 still worked.

The fact is that this test dropping from around 3m showed the iPhone and GN5 died and the GN7 still functioned normally... +1 GN7 (thanks to tc for telling us about this test)

There was a phone called Note...
Using it was a kind of symbol of prestige.... morePurchasing tech for prestige is silly. It's a tool, not jewelry. We tend to forget it's ultimately a mini computer, a communication terminal, an entertainment source, a powerful recording tool, and in the case of the Galaxy Note - an electronic notebook/sketchbook for thoughts, ideas, creativity.
I've demonstrated drawing processes, lectured how to use it for designing architecture, used it to earn for my projects.
Just demand coral blue n MEA region, no where, they will introbn last qtr, on premium. Just forget forgive sammy for hype,otherwise its nothing except luck on there side, anything will sell even fake, stagnacy has crept in.Wait just by nxt year get at 500$ definitely.

But then again; You can't do the multitasking on iPhone like you can on the Note. And you also can't customize your phone like your computer desktop on an iPhone, like you can do on a Note. So, faster app opening or tons of customization and multitasking?
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 24 Aug 2016The video showed Note.5 went dead. What's your point?Yeah as I said I accidentally dropped my 64GB premium Note 5 without any case and it didn't breaks nor suffer any scratch. Just proven no lie.
AnonD-569198, 24 Aug 2016You nailed it! The Note 7 rocks!good job paul......now this will be definitely a deal breaker :)
Very long ago...
There was a phone called Note...
Using it was a kind of symbol of prestige...
It was strongest and beutiest phone at the market.
Falling of that miracle phone began with Note 4, then streched S6 called Note 5.
S7 Edge with pen....
It is just another phone, nothing is special about it...
Iris scan so cool quick and easy to unlock the phone... normally I got bored after 2 days on every phone, I got note for 1 week still loving it.... 7 stars
Note 7 users, is there any lag in opening Gallery App from camera or not, as in Note 4 it is still there.
AnonD-430264, 23 Aug 2016Don't understand why you are knocking the iPhone. They are both premium phones with the price ... moreI am not trying to insult any mobile or company.
But a guy said that Samsung is fooling people and Iphones 6s can open apps faster than note 7.
So,i was just telling that real company which is fooling people is not Samsung. Its apple.
And i mentioned disadvantages of having a iphone(which are enough to break a deal).
I was telling that Note 7 is the best in market now and will be the best in some next coming years but apple is no match to Samsung.
Robin, 24 Aug 2016Wow! you had so much free time to write all that!!! neither apple or samsung are going to pay ... moreI think a apple fanboy got hurt as i mentioned some apple disadvantages.
And i hope you will be paid like me for your comment and you surely have busy life.You cannot even talk shit in your busy life.
