Have i mentioned that i love my GN7 camera? Will mention it again any way :-)
At 9MP (16:9) it destroys my GN4 at 16MP (16:9). Plus the image sizes are smaller.
Outdoors, indoors, sunlight, low light, flash, video, moving objects, quick focus required... it is simply awesome. Plus the interface is really well though out.
i purchased it it is good phone with sweet s-pen all thing is good enough but there are some lag in ui and applications . in benchmark apps it is go heat very fast compare to other devices like lg g5. mine is exynos. i think samsung use overclocking phone with some methods in benchmark app still or keep phone in high performance more than other. it is a cheat but overall it is good phone. camera is good but not best there are less details compare to some compotitors but sharp images with less nois in some cases pics not have natural look ex for grass and trees in far u can see painty effects easily and for nearest sharpening alghorithms make them non natural i think more noise is not bad against this heavy image proccessing. i dont like edge panels but this time i hadn't choice flat panel is better for me and even 2.5d is not good it is just for better design . s pen is great there is no competitor for this phone that have this feature for someone that note a lot and drawing and keep their ideas and tasks in their mobile phones like me this phone present u many many features but if you want to note with keyboard and drawing simple things don t need it ,it is just extra feature for regular user apps like keep do their tasks and keep their notes with their fingers andregular stylus but with less features like palm rejection . palm rejection is a very good thing in this but it is better for large devices about 10 inches my palm don t touch my screen in all positions when use s pen. design is good but very familiar to oldest galaxy devices. i don't like this design before thisi want to buy htc 10 but htc use a hardware mechanical key in front of phone like samsung !! this phone is good but don ' t make it great and make hype for it. sorry for bad english .
Been following cell phone news since 2004. I memorize mobile history like I can with horse racing, NBA history, movies, music, and video game history. I used 15 different phone brands and 6 different mobile OSes. I study it much more in-depth than typical users who are reading my posts.
I have a fickle mind with phones. Since the Note7, I do try to change my mind again and again but I can't. I try to find reasons NOT to buy it whether with scratches or whatever. What I need is 64gb internal. Other flagships have it BUT might lack a micro-sd slot. And if they have both, they lack VR. Those are three very basics I would want in a flagship -
64gb internal because Pirate Bay have TV series with a size over 30gb. This is the reason a USA S7 edge (32gb) won't work for me unless I get the international one.
Micro-sd slot. Neither Nexus devices, Xiaomi Mi 5, and OnePlus 3 have it. It is 2016 already and everyone wants to follow Apple's stupid philosophy.
VR being the future for enhanced media consumption. Alot of druggies, alcoholics, sex addicts, and Netflix users are going to love checking out VR at home.
LG G5 and V20 do have removable battery, but I already have three phones in my arsenal with it and LG lacks a good VR headset. My Moto E2 with non-removable has 20% better battery life than my LG G3 S (12h > 10h SOT using Opera Mini mostly). Only the S7 edge matches close to the Note7 but I prefer having Type-C, S-Pen, and ability to adjust the screen to a lower resolution. S7 edge is cool. Note7 is just cooler.
Go find your deal breakers. Note7 checking those marks are my deal MAKERS. Then add in all the other stuff like a free 256gb micro-sd card or Gear Fit 2, S-Pen, Type-C, HDR display, fast and wireless charging, dust/water-resistance, and so on and so on. No more being wishy-washy. Note7 is 100% certain for me because I have a fickle mind and I have a hard time changing my decision with this one already.
Rotating between several phones including cheap ones like a Moto E2 4G and Lumia 640 makes me not care about fingerprints and scratches on the Note7. I plan to put a black dbrand carbon skin on the back because I don't like glass backs and too slippery. At some point, we stop caring too much on flaws. Just use the phone and enjoy.
BRING BACK IR BLASTER !!!!!!! and have a separate tray for dual usim and sd card ! when you do something right don't take it away you idiots~!
the PERSIAN Gulf, 18 Aug 2016it's available here in the always persian gulf ... 799$hahahahahahahah ;D
it's only (one persian country) here - IRAN - .... & more & more Arab Countries :) - Have a nice day -
Sheraz, 20 Aug 2016Does anyone know whether note 7 gps require internet connection to work or does it work on its own? for google map you need data/internet,, only if you have some other GPS applications that doesn't need data
Ashish.jspr, 22 Aug 2016No snapdragon processor..They cut the main thing as they have used their own cheaper processor... moreYeah. Except that the version with the SD820 chipset has lower battery life and suffers quite a lot of frame drops when gaming. You better get your facts straight before talking rubbish.
I study phones like a science. It's a everyday thing for me. I am not trying to say Note7 is the perfect smartphone because that doesn't exist. They each will have their flaws. What I'm saying is don't bash it if you never tried it. If that dude scratching it with things turned you off, buy another phone. There will be flaws anyone will find with it too. You make a hissyfit with scratches like it left an emotional scar on you when people probably have acne or moles but worry so much on an appearance of a phone!
I try to look hard for a better phone. There is better value in other phones since paying over $200 is ridiculous for any smartphone. Most flagships go below that in two years. Flagships are generally overpriced and overrated. Scams for companies to milk on when most people can live with flagship specs from 2012-2013. But finding a better flagship of 2016? This Note7 is it. I don't get why u mad, bro? It's just a phone, man. They are all disposal anyway. We go through honeymoon phases. We get sick of it and upgrade. Next year, we will have foldable displays and Project Ara.
Again, scratches would bother me since I am more OCD than most of you reading this BUT there are bigger problems in the world. I would be OCD of any tiny dog ear in my basketball cards or if certain things isn't aligned. I would get OCD if the case of the phone is flawed too. I would get OCD if the icon doesn't match color with the wallpaper. I study it for nights as an obsession. But then I said screw it, I'll get a Note7. Battery is a little lower than S7e. Fingerprint magnet. Yadda yadda yadda. Go find your dealbreakers. Still the best smartphone of 2016 in my eyes, baby.
pr3zy, 22 Aug 2016I bought a note 7 on the 19th of August.besy phone I have used to date! It's everything I want... moreKey features I like:
-beautiful design, feels very comfortable to hold. Feels smaller than it is. (curved glass on the front and back, symmetrical)
- s pen feels better to write with and I like the GIF creator (you can make a video into a GIF with the S Pen)
-5.7" AMOLED display (same size as last year's note 5 but the phone is smaller to hold than an iPhone 6S plus and Note 5)
-water and dust resistant -extremely quick iris scanner to unlock your device, apps and folders -SD card slot is back (I received a free 128Gb SD card + there's 64GB internal memory(Note 5 did not have this and iPhone have never had this)
- new type C usb port means faster transfer speeds and doesn't matter which way you insert the charger)
- camera is exceptional as always/expected
You guys who own this phone, do you face the same issues as mentioned here in this article http://www.xda-developers.com/with-the-note-7-samsung-still-delivers-embarrassing-real-world-performance/
I bought a note 7 on the 19th of August.besy phone I have used to date! It's everything I wanted the Samsung galaxy note 5 to be and more! Highly recommend this phone! I definitely have no regrets buying this fantastic device!
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2016what the phase of your brain?! leave this crapp seller i have tab s but not get marshmallow i ... moreI wholeheartedly agree; Samsung seem very happy to leave older devices unupdated (sometimes in specific 'high socio-economic' areas) as if to push customers to buying new tech.
I do not like that company tactic, and agree as consumers we have to vote with our wallets.
Unfortunately Iam weak knee'd and bought a Note 7 from a Telco that makes many many errors and whilst charging premium dollars, often underdelivers on service....
I will have no one to complain to, but to acknowledge I was willing to be 'pants' again.
Sammy have stated they will have faster rollouts going forward,.. and seemed to have taken active steps towards that goal (moving a lot of their apps that were default included with devices to the app store).
As their apps were written to make use of specific hardware, and having varying chipsets in the market, it no doubt proved a nightmare for previous devices to keep them updated.
You do know you can always go user customised Operating System and get your own chosen variant of an OS...
I have kitkat on a Nexus S as an example, and can put Marshmallow on my Motorola that maxed out at Android 4.4.2...
Having had both an Exynos variant and a Snapdragon variant Note (several in fact), the Exynos variant is 'hands down' the winner.
The reason why people tout Apple iOS products is due to their syncronistic hardware and software marriage. Every aspect of the silicon is utilised, and the hardware punches "well above its' weight".
The same with Samsungs developed Exynos processors..
Being an inhouse design, they can make their software utilise the threads very well.
The nature of having an eight core processor means nothing if they are not loaded well.
When Android with Touchwiz/GraceUX runs on an Exynos processor you can be sure that it will run with less hiccups.
In fact the divide in the community between lagging Touchwiz, and other users swearing that it is a smooth experience would probably find correlation to the chipsets used.
My experience is the 'more powerful' snapdragon chipsets lead to 'lagging' and unresponsive front ends,.. where as the Exynos variants run much smoother.
Personally, being a fan of high end audio, and appreciating a nice set of headphones can get a person a long way towards a 'good stereo system',.. I try to find the best portable media players that I can...
The HDR capable screen (and oh my Lord it it!,.. it upscales and up colours even 'very average content' (if using the 'dynamic display profile') to brilliance.. even sub DVDquality stuff looks better than bluray... Pair this video brilliance with audio Nirvana and we have a multimedia tool better than any on the planet.
Exynos always had the better DAC (digital to analogue converters), which will not benefit bluetooth headphones, but will improve 'wired' headsets very nicely.
If you are not critically listening, maybe not so obvious.. but if we are 'critically comparing CPUs, stating Snapdragon is better', lets get 'realworld', and figure out what matters.
Subjective reality aside, Exynos delivers objectively better usage and 'sipping' of the battery(longer battery life).
Exynos is a win. even if the snapdragon chip this time around gets the same DAC unit as the HTC 10.. the Exynos unit gets the Lucky DAC co developed by Wolfson/Cirrus Logic (Cirrus now owning Wolfson I believe).
Anyhow, it is a flagship. Better phone you cannot find.
Some people have money and want to spend it.. this is the best money can buy presently.
Well done Samsung.
No snapdragon processor..They cut the main thing as they have used their own cheaper processor.
Still there is no match for snapdragon.mi prime or Moto G4 are far better than this crap.
Well i was playing with this phone in the store..OMG,,,, the back was scratched badly and screen had scratches too,nice phone very fast ,but for almost $900 ,no thank you ,battery endurance 90HR???For now i will stick with my note 4
The poor scratch resistant glass is a deal breaker for this phone!
whitedragon, 21 Aug 2016Screen WILL scratch. Definately get a screen protector.... I hit jb hifi today (sunday) ... morewhat the phase of your brain?! leave this crapp seller i have tab s but not get marshmallow i just angry for now several hours aho i saw the news but i think samsung want to releasemarshmallow when i vome back i knew the truth. if i wanna buy a phone or tablet i just will buy sony or htc never samsung again neveeeeeer.
