Two main reasons why I want Note7 over any other phone -
64gb internal storage.. The American version of the S7 edge only has 32gb. I like downloading from torrent sites using Flud or uTorrent. Some entire TV series on Pirate Bay is as high as 30+gb. I refuse to get a Xiaomi Mi 5, OnePlus 3, and iPhone 7 lacks a micro-sd slot. That's a huge red flag.
Gear VR. This applies to several Samsung phones too but Gear VR is the cheapest to experience VR smut! ;) LG 360 VR cost double and is rated poorly. Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, and HTC Vive are all costly and require wires being attached. The Gear VR is something I plan using with all the movies and TV shows I downloaded from torrent sites.
Add in the best display, great camera, design, and battery life.
The only advantages S7 edge has over Note7 -
+ Slightly smaller
+ More scratch-resistance from GG4
+ Slightly better battery life but S7 edge lacks the feature to lower the resolution
The fairly average speaker loudness is a push for both. S7 edge also lacks the S-Pen and all the valuable features it can offer. It lacks Type-C which is the future standard. I don't care about the iris scanner but it is there for extra security. The deciding factor between both goes back to the first reason. 64gb v 32gb internal. And also the S-Pen where I can write reminders to myself on the lockscreen like a Post-It or can easily make gifs. For a little extra, get the best of the best!
Optional, 20 Aug 2016Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a must-have flagship phone as of now. Tougher, more features, better ... moreFlagship for how long, 1 month or 2? Wait a little while and Note 8 or 9 will be released :)
[deleted post]That's a massive exaggeration, mate, and you know it.
Samsung should put screen protection with the unit out of the box since the screen is downgraded from Note 5 screen. There are cheap phones with CG4 and provide free screen protection in the unit package. Why not an $850 phone?

The only thing i dont like about my note 7 is the plastic thing that covered the camera flash. I tried scratching it with my nail or rough cloth and it scratched! Its not really visible though. Everything else is fine but that. Just wondering why they didnt cover it with gorilla glass.
I still love my phone
Julliard, 20 Aug 2016Ever heard of palm rejection on S7 Edge? Yes, we have that on Note7 too. Spen sucks up battery... moreWell said! After purchasing the galaxy S4 I said I would never get a samsung ever again and after a Sony and HTC since then I've eaten my words and got the note 7. Its been 3 days now and I don't have any regrets this phone is great
Getting my hands on the note 7 in a week's time. Can't friggin wait!
AnonD-574032, 21 Aug 2016Wish the Note 7 comes in a flat screen version as well.I would have preferred the flat screen but the edge display is fine. It looks better but costs more. Apart from that the function is the same. The curves are a lot less pronounced that the s7 edge.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2016claims marshmallow, and android is coming out with logat??? so outdated in a couple months? no... moreYou clearly have no idea and are making yourself look silly. Android 6 is the current release. Even if 6.1 comes it will be a minor update. Troll elsewhere.
Still Note 4 is worth the price as Note 7 is costly with only minor differences with Note 4. Note 4 rocks.

The more I use the note 7 the more I like it.
The camera is simply amazing. I got great ... moreBrilliant (and congratulations!!)
The camera is fairly impressive.
I too a few shots attempting to get aberrations (light aroung highly contrasting edges being mismatched, often a purple 'blur'), and even around frame edges I haven't picked up any examples... I would say the lens is 'very sound'.. could easily be software tricks/I haven't been looking at the RAW files.
Android 6 variant on Note 7 blows away android Android 6 on Note 4.
A lot of customisation is here and the wbole thing is noticably improved.
Admittedly, couldn't use inbuilt system transfer (that fired up on startup, nor since.. both phones NFC is on, bluetooth paired and same wifi network... feature is broken/not guaranteed easy); could easily do cable method no doubt.
Cases are a must. Spigen seems to have the right range (though avoid metal backed ones for lower SAR/better Qi...
I cannot believe how much smaller this phone is from my Note (Edge).
This is Galaxy S2 levels of cool.. (Onyx user)
I haven't pulled the plastic off my unit yet... got caught out with telco not sending me a nano sim.. so still using my prior Note for calls etc
Finding where to turn 'fast charge' off seemed an exercise in futility, but I had had a tiring day.. just for first few topups going with regular charging... then 'Qi' all the way....
Without an activated SIM, people can easily dismiss my battery claims, but writing stuff like this, with key vibrate on, takes a toll on any battery....
We consumers have to remember not all specs are created equally...
If we keep telling manufacturers we want 'higher milliamp hour' numbers on our spec sheets... we will eventually have 5000mAh batteries that lose significant capacity after six months of use...
I prefer batteries that give a great lifetime of use, using fastcharge and poor usage habits... no doubt like the ones in present phones by 'proper' companies ;-)
Soz Bunyip, half that breakdown is for others... I know you've got your case sorted.
I was going to include that battery rant to this same reply had it have gone to Pedro-the real slim shady...
I was too tired to write before going to bed, and wanted to see how much 'always on display' sips juice.
Ps screen is incredible; fired up some '30 rock' off Presto; all family members could see the epic difference;that HDR chip isn't just a colour upscaler....

The more I use the note 7 the more I like it.
The camera is simply amazing. I got great ... moreThe camera - I did state I've been borrowing the wife's S7 Edge for taking pictures and video. The motion picture function of having 3-second silent video gives a great context to the pictures you take - it's sometimes hilarious. It's so quick to launch by double-clicking the home button to capture anything quickly. Focusing is just excellent EVERY TIME.
It's the perfect tool to record your daughter's growth, like what I have been doing with my son's. She'll appreciate all these recordings in the future.
That 60fps FHD video recording and now with HDR on the Note7 is gold! Video just turned out so crisp and about. Now you can even record in the rain, like with my son's first experience playing on a rainy afternoon.
Yup, camera, water-resistance and the improved S Pen which quadruples the pressure-sensitivity of what I am using are the top three reasons why I got the Note7. Just waiting still for a black onyx...
Collected note7 last Thursday ... And giving me problem can't be started up - Samsung staff try to restart it and successfull. Unfortunately this morning is hang again and it keep on restarting itself. I guess I'm the unlucky one to face issues after 1st day.
i got note 7 for 2 days now note 7 is the best,,, battery life is alot better than i thought last me 40 hours
