    I just hope Samsung offers the colors right away. In Canada all the carriers for the S7 edge still only offers the black onyx. No point of offering different color variants if you're not going to provide it.

    Me too, I've seen one edge model and a bunch of regulars.
    That's weird. For me, it's usually one regular S7 for every 5-6 S7 edge devices.

    I have never used an "edge" device, but my useage of the Note involves standing, gripping the phone, and taking notes with the stylus.
    Now, does making contact with the edge/glass effect the functioning of the phone while I'm trying to take notes? That would drive me nuts!
    Even with my current Note, my hand-chub will sometimes inadvertently make contact with the screen and will cause something to happen. To my thinking, extra glass toward the edge of the phone is NOT a good thing.

    Unless, of course, I'm failing to understand how those edges work.

    Really of the renders hold true doesn't look to bad, right now have the Note 5, I'm more or less happy with it, most of the negitives are it being a carrier phone and having to deal with not only Sammy's bloat the carriers and to some extent Google. If this is sold in the US, like recently unlocked S7's and with no carrier bloat, I just may consider.

    Yep, I'm with you on this. My fingers are not chubby but there have been plenty of times when just holding my note 5 caused something i did not intend.

    Note 7 looks nice and "interesting" with its edges, but I don't think it is for ME. Plus I just don't see how i can be writing with a stylus over the part that curves off to the side. Unless I am "not understanding" something, I prefer the normal straight edges. We shall see from official announcement what the real note 7 will look like. who knows maybe the will be a normal version after all. Remember last year there was the same hype about edge only phone?

    Yep, I don't have fat hands either...but I definitely don't need a phone that requires even more caution than I currently have to exercise while working.

    If the S7 (non edge) could be adapted to act like a Note phone (by simply accepting an accessory stylus), I'd be all over it. Compact, fast, light, proper bezel....and I'd merely need to keep an extra stylus in my pocket.

    Question: Assuming that these are actual renders, how can you tell that they don't have notification lights? I have the Note 4 (and will be upgrading to the 7 soon, I hope) and only see the notification light when I have an active notification. I can't see it, otherwise, as it lights up through the glass and not through a hole. Am I missing something here?

    If we can find the original renders for the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 4 or Note 5 maybe we can see if the notification light showed up on them. Maybe it does not show up on the renders as it's hidden behind the glass.

    OK, it's not showing up on the S7 renders either. This is a good sign.

    Every one of my friends that have an Edge say they wish they would have gotten the non-edge version.

    They say it warps the text and they always accidentally hit it.

    I'm not a fan of 'always on' anything. If the notification light isn't there then I'll gladly wait for a dark metallic green Note 7 as a tradeoff.
    I have a note 3 and the light was concealed by the face color even back then, so here's hoping common sense prevailed at Samsung and it's still there.

    Every year when a new note comes out I always check amazon for the cases and each time the photos show what it looked like they were usually right so far. Here's one for the Note7:

    I have the S7E and it is the only phone I have ever had to have a case on because of the way it feels. Love the screen, but I hate the edge (if that makes any sense). I don't need the note, but if the edge feels better I'll get it and give the S7E to my wife. The regular S7 was too small for me.

    It looks like the back is curved on the sides like the s7. I'm assuming this will fit the hand very well. #deviceoftheyear

    I think for that very reason, it's a dumb idea to make this device with the curved edges. It's going to be .2" larger than the S7 edge. While it will have the additional bonus of the pen, I think it's just way too similar of a product.

    I think a phone the size of the note is really difficult to "learn how to use". It's just too large of a form factor to keep from bumping the screen's curved edge part. IMO, the edge display will make the new note almost impossible to use one handed.

    Had a blast with my S6 Edge plus, which by the way, had a one handed mode for small hand people, as i'm sure the new Note will.

    All my Notes have been black and the devices prior to that have been black. The only non black phone I've owned was the T-Mobile G-1 which was a navy blue. I see no need to change now. Black Note 7 please.

    Okay, I'm seeing two holes on the top of the device. Hoping one of them is an IR Blaster.

    So, you have used the S6 edge+, Note 5, and S7e in recent times, right?

    Yep. 2 Edge devices and Note. Had an HTC 10 and returned it after a week. Never had much issue with any of the three, all excellent devices.

    Any reason why you returned the HTC 10? Like, perhaps it maybe not fitting your usage pattern as well as the S7?
