    The HTC 10 checked all of the boxes and runs really well. But it does nothing special that really makes it stand out from any other flagship. I was bored with it surprisingly quickly. I also found it hard to adjust to a smaller screen. Just not for me.

    I have to say that I have really been looking forward to seeing renders of the Note 7. I must admit that I like what I see, despite the fact that only the edge screen variant will be available. Honestly, I was hoping for a flat screen Note, as I already have a Galaxy S7 edge. The main question I keep asking myself is if what I have seen justifies the upgrade.

    We are still a month out from the official launch, but if the rumors are true, I will probably refrain from upgrading. The screen is only slightly bigger than the edge, and from my understanding of the rumors, it will have the same battery and camera. The only true upgrade I am seeing is in the RAM, which doesn't necessarily justify the upgrade, at least in my opinion as I am not really interested in the iris scanner. I really like Samsung products, but I am somewhat disappointed in the lack of differentiating factors between the S7 edge and the Note 7.

    As much as I love my S7 edge, I really don't like the edge screen. I find that it gets in the way when I am trying to do things on my phone such as texting. I use SwiftKey, and I find that the edge gets in the way of some of the keys on the keyboard. Also, I would hardly consider myself to be a "gamer," but I do play Minecraft on my phone with my daughter sometimes. I find that the edge gets in the way of accessing my toolbox on the game. I was going to get my daughter an edge for her birthday, but she doesn't want it for the same reasons. She would rather have the standard Galaxy S7. With that said, if Samsung decides to launch a flat screen version on the Note 7, I'll be all over it. However, I won't be holding my breath.

    I actually preordered the HTC 10 but cancelled at the last second.

    I was afraid of something like the above happening to me and am glad I did cancel !

    The screen real estate was a huge factor in me canceling and now I'm waiting for the Note 7

    Okay, I'm seeing two holes on the top of the device. Hoping one of them is an IR Blaster.
    I think those are for the mics, and the noise cancellation feature. I hope I'm wrong.

    The IR blaster is dead. I'm sorry to those who used it and loved it, but the reality is that it was an expensive part that added no significant value to the device for most people. Don't hate me for saying it. It just it. Thats another cut in the shell (that needs effectively sealed), its another piece of hardware, its more programming, a control chip, for a very small percentage of users. When dealing with a company willing to hack things like SD cards and removable batteries (both of which drive accessory sales to them), there is no way they bring back the IR Blaster. The SD card made the cut because it was by far the most complained about item. Even #2, the removable battery, isn't coming back.

    I don't think the IR blaster was even used all that much.

    I loved to play with it on the HTC One M7, but it was more of a novelty as I just used it to control fans and such with AnyMote, and not very often at that.

    I'd love to have it back, but I don't think the number of people using it is high enough to justify that. Oh well, still have the M7, so I'll keep it as a remote when I get the Note.

    Welp, edge only = no Note for me, and no iPhone 7 without a headphone jack. LG please don't mess up the V11!

    I have a Note 5 (gold), and I can't see the notification light at all unless it's blinking. It's hidden behind super-thin, opaque gold.

    I miss the IR blaster so much and I know a lot of people that feel the same way. I know more people who use the IR blaster than people who use the heart rate sensor. Get rid of that and give me back my IR blaster Samsung!

    Hope they make a note with a flat screen that is large as what they put out with the edge screen so we can have a large battery.
    I got a S7E.
    Like the size of the battery. But I don't care for the edge screen .I really don't like the edge screen at all.
    And I don't use anybody the features on the edge screen.
    If Samsung only comes out with a note with a edge screen. I may opt out getting a new note phone .

    I disabled the health crap on my Note 4. The heart rate sensor NEVER worked consistently enough for use. That's the feature Sammy needs to get rid of.

    I use the steps and when I go running I use the distance thing within S-Health. I never tried the heart sensor since I never cared to really get a reading on that.

    I think one explanation for the inconsistent reading is the placement of the HRM.

    On the S6, Note 5 and S7, it's vertical instead of horizontal like on the S5 and Note 4. I tried one on both the S6 and S7 and they seem to be more accurate. Also, the HRM module on the S7 looks different.

    Maybe there's a chance for gold. Here is a list of official accesories and it seems we might have a gold note. Fingers crossed

    But I also didn't care for the elongated look of the S7 edge and the note 7 edge looks like it will be the same.
    AGREED! I like a more squarish phone.

    I don't think it's 95%. It's much lower. I'd say less than half if we're talking overall numbers including good and bad.

    Remember that the negative ones tend to be more vocal.

    Based on expected two year device retirement cycle, 50% would be great, as long as there is incremental growth as well from non Noters.

    My guess is the device should do very well, if priced right..

    I've had the Note 3 from the day it released upgrading from my broken Galaxy 3 because the Note 3 was the only Samsung available that day & I HAD to have a phone. Fell in love with the larger size. My son is now 8 and has never even noticed the pen even though he's seen me use it. It's the 1 thing he has never bothered of mine!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Beyond excited about the 7 release <hurry, hurry, hurry!>, because I passed on upgrading to Note 4 as was very little difference from Note 3. Certainly not enough to justify the cost to upgrade. Was signing paperwork for upgrade to Note 5 when salesperson reported back that there was no option for a memory card. Cancelled upgrade immediately & stuck with Note 3 hoping Note 6 would go back to memory cards. When Galaxy 6 were released, waited with baited breath for the Note 6 to follow. I could FINALLY upgrade after years... never happened. So disappointed.... YES, I can't hardly stand it that the 7 will be here, hopefully, in the next few weeks!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
