Just wished Americans got the best variant of the Note7 - Exynos / 128gb / 6gb RAM. We have to settle for a weaker variant. According to GSMArena, Note7 beats S7 edge in a camera shootout.
+ Slightly better battery life
+ GG4 scratch resistant
+ Slightly better camera
+ Better display
+ GG5 shatter resistant
+ Larger internal storage for base model
+ More features thanks to the S-Pen
People choosing S7 edge is reassurance posts because they own one or want it cheaper. They are nearly the same size with a few millimeters in height and width on the Note7. Shatter pr cracks are also more annoying to look at than scratches. Most haters of the Note7 are from insecure S7 edge or iPhone users. Or from tightwads or people who can't afford it.
Best all-around smartphone on the planet that money can buy until S8 edge and foldable displays come out next year. Don't let other people who haven't owned it for that long try to make you think otherwise. We will see its true value months after.
victorlo, 23 Aug 2016What happened to the RAM of 6-8GB Storage 256GB Battery 4,200mAh Apparently, the 6gb version is exclusive to china, the 256gb memory is external only, and the 4200mah was never legitimately considered.
Screen resolution at 720p screen resolution, 50% brightness, wifi only, no nano SIM (no available replacement yet), with some 2 GB used data, over a stretch of 13:38H from full to nil battery:
8:22H Screen On Time usage, with mostly seeing up, downloading apps, YouTube, browsing.
This is my first discharge after fully charging for the first time over 13 hours ago. The first few battery usage are the most impressive, but let's see how it fairs with 1440p screen resolution.
Whos says there is no Screen Protector that will FIT the Edge Screen.?.
BATTERY Non-removable Li-Po 3500 mAh battery
This is a deal breaker
Y wd samsung be producing phones wt curved edge knowing dat tempered glass doesn't fit in with the screen?Producing a phone dat is shatter proof but less scratch resistant. Were they convinced d phone is used as hammer by users?
People are posting that it has some ram management issues.if anyone owns it. As for multitasking how is it.i really want this phone but ram management makes me rethink.?
I saw leaked photos of the Sony PS4 slim which seemed tempting because been interested in getting back into video games. But I said nah, let me get the Note7 first! The PS4 can't download from torrent apps and I like the Gear VR portability and price. PS4 can wait. Need Note7 now.
VR seems like a gimmicky but this is how I rank gadget importance for me -
Laptop/Desktop/Notebook/2 in 1 hybrids
Portable media player
VR is in the middle of being practical and gimmicky. I never found tablets practical. Never got into the iPad craze. A giant iPod touch. Apple Watch is a big waste of money. VR is something that can enhance my media viewing experience.
I can point at every flaw of the Note7. It has been said repeatedly here like high price, scratch prone GG5, average speaker, lower battery life than S7 edge, non removable, no FM, yadda yadda. Like a broken record already. But it is just too good for me to pass up even with its flaws. I need my 64gb internal, micro-sd slot, and Gear VR. I need the free goodies like a free 256gb micro-sd card or maybe free Samsung TV down the road.
I will be feasting on Pirate Bay, YIFY movie using my Flud app. Will downloading on YouTube, DailyMotion, and adult sites using TubeMate app. I need high storage period to transfer it all to my external hard drive. Then we also have a great design, camera, still pretty solid battery life, and many more features to boot. When my relatives drive me to Vegas in November, I will be sitting at the back using Gear VR to watch my movies and TV shows that I downloaded. Just wished the 128gb/6gb RAM/Exynos was optional for the U.S.
We can fault it but it is just too good to pass up no matter if the iPhone 7, HTC Nexus devices, and PS4 slim get released. Stop hesitating over superficial reasons or being a tightwad. This smartphone is the best of the best right now until the S8 edge and Note8 get released with 4K display. The rest of the competition are playing catch up with VR and other phones aren't quite as feature-packed or excel in the most important areas like the S7e/Note7 do no matter if they are cheaper.
@ Night Wolf @, 22 Aug 2016for google map you need data/internet,, only if you have some other GPS applications that doe... moreActually, you could download offline map now on google map so you can used it offline
G chand, 22 Aug 2016Gold and Blue is the best i have Gold, Gold looks more platinum than Blue Hows is silver color ???
The screen is insanely much more bright! The screen is suppose to go up as much as 1000 nits. I love how more crisp the scenes are with the HDR totally deep blacks.
Iris scanner is fast enough, although since I'm connected to a trusted Bluetooth device all the time, I use Google Smart Lock to just swipe to open. If disconnected, the Note7 automatically locks.
Blue light filter has been around since the 2013 Note 8 labeled as reader mode. I don't know why it's a big deal now that Apple has implemented it. Anyway, it works great.
Always Screen On idea is not something I appreciate as it still drains battery, but I will turn it on for my side bed clock while it is plugged in.
I just turned off the Edge panels entirely, and replaced it with SideSwipe as a better way of launching shortcuts - it can also have contacts at the ready. You can have 6 by 7 grid total - maximum 42 shortcuts, and you can customize a number of different sets of shortcuts, triggered at different hotspots.
Note7 is turning out great. More on how the S Pen is performing.
Got a warranty receipt, return N7 space between glass and frame, particles near edges. It's hush up deliver date syndrome. Forget wait nxt batch 4th qtr.
