I would love if the Note7 was indestructible or was harder to scratch but should being susceptible to scratches deprive me from...?
+ Beautiful display with HDR
+ Beautiful design
+ Great camera
+ Excellent battery life
+ 64gb internal storage
+ S Pen which can translate words
+ Ability to lower resolution to 720p or 1080p
+ Gif makers
+ Type-C which the S7 edge doesn't have
+ Free 256gb micro-sd card or Gear Fit 2
+ New $100 Gear VR for VR smut and Netflix!
+ More shatterproof than Gorilla Glass 4
Gee, once we get the Note7, let's go find razor blades and coins to go scratch the screen! Gimme a break. If those itty-bitty scratches bother you so much, don't buy it. Stick to your S7 edge or whatever suits your needs or budget. There will still be millions and millions more who don't care about something so petty if you look at Note7's positives.
The best smartphone of the year. S7 edge got demoted to #2. The rest of the competition is fighting for 3rd place.
s7 edge or note 7 ...
which is best to buy???
plzz help me dude..

But anyways, since you have you have the expendable cash to switch between multiple phones, why stop there? Go on out and grab a Porsche, and if someone keys it; don't worry - it's equivalent to a broken fingernail.

Spen sucks up battery? What are you talking about? Spen is not like Apple Pencil. It is not a rechargable stylus using battery. Always-on-display only use 1% of the battery. Iris scanner eats battery? Yeah, that a great excuse(sarcasm). Its like saying the 12mp camera eats battery. You dumb? Its only activated when being used. Spen don't stuck anymore. The design of the slot is tapered inside so that the spen only go in one direction only. It can't be inserted backward. The scratch problem is very minor ones. I opt for crack free vs scratch free any day. You want a phone that can't be scratch you would have to trade for a more fragile, breakable, crackable glass. You want a phone that don't crack at all you have to trade that feature with a softer glass that absorb impact very very well. You can't have both. Unless you buy a tempered glass.
Does anyone know whether note 7 gps require internet connection to work or does it work on its own?

But I told myself why should something so superficially minor ruin my enjoyment USING the phone? Most of us USE our phone. Not stare at it all day to check for scratches. Again, it would be a dealbreaker if the Note7 glass cracked like the Nexus 4 rear did but it doesn't.
I would rather have shatterproof glass than scratchproof. In a perfect world, we would get it all and a perfect smartphone does exist. But we don't live in one and an indestructible perfect smartphone doesn't exist. Just weigh the pros and cons, people. Whining about scratches when we are still getting the best smartphone of the year with a free 256gb micro-sd card or Gear Fit 2 sounds petty.
Enjoy the phone. Stop worrying about superficial nonsense like that. Don't let OCD folks become a buzz kill. My boxers would be too busy crying from tears of joy watching VR adult stars than crying about scratches! I rotate between five phones to NOT care. Got better things to do and bigger problems to worry about than scratching a nail or phone.

CG4 doesn't need screen protector. CG5 is easy to scratch even with normal materials, such a shame. Normal clothes can easily scratch the CG5 therefore even by just putting the phone inside the pocket will scratch the screen. No way, I won't upgrade to such phone with easy-to-scratch-screen issue.

Spen stuck may be solved BUT many many note7 have already "PRODUCED" and these fulty note7 are ready to launch...
Sony XA Ultra is better better than note7 excpt speed
Moreover Corning Glass scratch problem is the most disappointing for samsung users..with jaw-dropping high price tag..
May be..Unlucky note7
Mike, 20 Aug 2016Would this version work in Canada? Can someone help me please?Probably yes ! It's will work in Canada !
what is the benefit for this phone...what is the differ from other phone...it really useless phone.
i used note 2 ,3 ,4, 5 also now 7 , but best phone i found note 4.
note 7 : over heating , when use video camera battery going down. like when we use 5 minute capture take 7 percentage battery. , iris test complicated. camera pixels, capture photos when we zoom pixels are worst.

So what you end up doing is raising the brightness to try to get the same crystal clear colors and brightness you see at the demo from the store.

Note 7 is the most durable phone.
It not only has front but also has back side edge.
They will not(probably) release flat version.
Most of the high end phones do not have radio.
Having no ir is a minor problem(obviosly cannot be fixed with any accessory).
But it has (first ever phone having)cgg5 on both sides,brighest phone,(first ever phone with)dual edge screen,(too much)improved s pen,IP68 certified(dust and water proof),sAMOLED 5.7 inches(big) screen,1440×2560 pixels(518 ppi pixel density),(first ever and improved)grace ui,always on display,exynos 8890 chipset(octa core with great benchmark),mali-T880m12(great gpu),4 gb ram with 64 gb rom,expandable storage,same cameras of S7E(which won a lot of awards for camera),(first ever samsung phone with)type c connector,(first ever phone with)iris scanner which is great,SpO2,fast charging,wireless charging,3500mAh(large battery),HDR display.

It is the most shatter proof phone.
It does not even bend a single centimeter if you put your full energy in bending it.
All the phone bend except note 7.
In last of the video(from jerryrigeverything) ,he said that it is the most durable phone in the world right now.
It is the best phone of 2016.
And cgg5 is very good.
