AnonD-18025, 19 Aug 2016How can you put a screen protector on the screen that has edges? For sure it will wrinkle.OK.It is a (minor)negative point in it.
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 world's best.

Not that it need to... moreDon't know what your talking about because the ram on a smartphone has nothing to a laptop ram. 6 gb ram on a smartphone is like 3 gb ram on a laptop. 6 gb laptop ram is faster.

That is the way these companies are. They care less what consumers want. They want what they want. What you see is what you get.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 19 Aug 2016Well, so much for Gorilla Glass 5 being unbreakable "80 percent" of the time.

Dropping my phone is an accident, how do you expect me to record it and post to YouTube?
My premium 64GB Note 5 drops without a cover and it didn't breaks nor any scratch on the screen.
I hope Samsung will bring back the Corning Glass 4.

Not that it need to make such a huge jump or anything and end up getting bash for being gimmicky with 6gb ram. On the bright side, this super fast pace of smartphone tech evolving is a good thing. It makes laptop price drops drastically because laptop these days have lower specs than our phones.
Am I the only one who wishes they'd fix the S pen design?? I always put it in backwards & get it stuck! Lol What a crap design, cuz once it goes in wrong, it's nearly impossible to get it out intact. Hoping they fixed this flaw..
I also like the Note 4's leather back better than the 5's cheap plastic one. The glass on the 7 is such a stupid idea. Can't wait to drop it. Ugh.
& Why no IR? Or radio? & The curves.. Wish there was a flat version too!
Smartphonea we use today are more and more similar....
In speed and performance all smartphones(in midrande & flagship )are almost the same
Even Chinese phones touch high brand phones
So we have to choose correctly same smartphones in terms of TWO CAMERAS (selfie&back) that are the most obvious feature between phones and other electronic devices
Note7 cameras are very weak and has drawbacks for 2016
Sony Xperia XA ULTRA ; Lord of the Selfie with srunning 21 mp shoter with very affordable price is the best ONE for 2016
Note 7 may be good BUT lack innovative fearure
Note 7 is the same 2013 note3 except "curveddisplay" that make disappoining CURVED image CURVED photos and CURVED people and CURVED text in edge portion
Moreover this curved display waste screen area: It is smaller than 5.7" in real use due to curvy display
This curved display offers screen broke and scratchs
Unfortunately;Corning Gorilla Glass 5 used in note7 is easy to make stripes
That'why is note7 is well worth to buy??

Does anyone know if this DUAL SIM model allows for WiFi Calling ...when the SIMs from the service provider allow it? If I have two carriers and the appropriate SIMs...can I use WiFi calling on both networks.
Careful...I'm not talking about Skype, Viber, etc.
AnonD-430264, 19 Aug 2016How do you like the several rumors that the S8 might be bringing back the removable battery? O... moreNice try. But I would love a removable battery. It's where I could and would get a 3x extended battery.
Everyone seems so happy with current water-resistance because of the sealed hardware, and good for security of the smartphone. Until battery starts acting funny. Yeah, Samsung wants people buying every year cycle instead of changing that sealed battery. It doesn't bother them the scarcity of repair centers.
Good choice on the back glass material too - likely to break and boy does it break easy on the first drop, and they'll be turned off with the high price of replair they'll just get a new one. Amazing strategy to make money.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 19 Aug 2016Cool. That brings 5:42H SOT on wifi with full brightness. We shouldn't be draining the battery... moreHow do you like the several rumors that the S8 might be bringing back the removable battery? Of course you know, Note 8 would follow suit if that happens.

Some people did ... moreNo thanks, I don't like putting screen protector on a phone because it will make the resolution ugly! I'd rather buy a cheaper phone with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 than an expensive phone with a downgraded screen. I will wait for the next Note, I hope Corning Gorilla Glass 4 will be back.
Well, so much for Gorilla Glass 5 being unbreakable "80 percent" of the time.
Those curved corners pretty much cracked on first impact at 1m height than a 6ft drop Corning is claiming. Gorilla Glass is tempered and chemically strengthened glass. The thing with ALL real glass like Corning's is still breakable. The 80 percent claim of not breaking is balcony - it seems the opposite. This is what most if you were asking for - glass on the back for a sort of twisted concept of "premium". WTF.
I've put cases in all of my Galaxy devices, and I strongly insisted that my wife get a case for her Galaxy S7 Edge with ample elevated rubberized perimeter edges. She dropped it once, front glass facing to the concrete floor with no damage, thanks to the Spigen case.
We all know from reports that it would cost $250 to replace that front panel, and probably the water-resistance will never be the same.
Same problem with the Note7, if you decided to go no case at all. You can even forget getting just a bumper frame. Sticker skins or clear thin plastic will never help. Glass protection are just a waste as they break easy, making it harder for touch features, won't stick properly as cases can push them off, and they give tiny rainbow effects.
I suggest thick elevated perimeter rigid cases like OtterBox series, Spigen, Tech21, or anything that prevents those curved glass corners and edges front coming in contact with the hard surface in accidental drops.
Other than the front glass panel, now you even have to worry another 100 percent more of glass at the back - I really have to congratulate those who wanted this. They didn't like the flexible, more sturdy leather textured back. Samsung listened to you.
I'm amazed at some who claim that their "premium" glass-backed smartphone can survive accidental drops WITHOUT ANY CASE like the video. Well, try filming it, and post your claims on YouTube.
Oh, I'm still getting a Note7, and am just waiting for the black onyx to arrive. It's the camera and the S Pen are the main reasons why I'm getting it - not for its glass back, nor fragile corners.
SSSS, 18 Aug 2016Who uses radio on a cellphone? wtf?Me and million others around the world...Any problem?
Too bad, still no IR (infrared) blaster on this phone. I've been waiting for Samsung to add it back, a great feature to control other compatible electronic devices.
Forgot to mention: FLAC audio codec: If they had 5.1-Microphones, the Audio and Video recorder (see HTC One M10) could make great use of it. The One M10 just does not have sufficient microhpones.
Android 7 should give users the possiblity, to choose, which storage applications should be able to access to and which one not: MicroSD, Internal, OTG, and whatever device. Maybe, USB-C-3.1 can exhaust and max out firewire. Or at least make more use of it with an adapter. But let's not drift off-topic.
Here is, what shortcuts (costumizable of course) and improvements they could have used: too:
-2x Home: INSTANTLY start video recording
-3x Home: INSTANTLY start slow-motion recording (with previous camera settings, or shortcut-associated settings)
-Hold physical shutter key for at least half a second: Start burst-shot right away. When the RAM is full, keep shooting slower (long-haul-burst), until ENOSPC, overheat or weak battery comes.
-2x shutter-key: take a photo and continue running the camera-application.
-3x shutter-key: Quick snapshot: just take a photo, and do not open the camera application. Treat this photo like a screenshot, but save it in the camera folder. Write into EXIF-data, which kind of shortcut has been used.-
-Tap-to-shoot-mode: shoot a photo, when the shutter button is PRESSED, not released.
-Absolute zero-chain-shutter lag: like iPhone: ALWAYS react, when shutter is pressed. Not just sometimes. Example: The Galaxy S5 had a very variable shutter lag. Sometimes, the shutter-key reacted faster during chain-shooting. Sometimes, the camera did not react. Sometimes, it refocuses for no reason, even if the current focus is correct. This can be very irritating and even annoying.
-Place the camera in the corner (already mentioned)
Very important: I noticed, how much smoother 60fps is than 30fps. Combinig this with 2160p would be godlike.
I could also keep talking about DCi-4K@48fps (13MPx would be better, because the image sensor would even have a few pixels to spare for slight sensor-internal stabilization) and how the S5 is able to take 4000✖3000-pictures during recording a 4:3-video (12 cheated pixels), but that's too much off-topic.
