    a slightly larger screen, S Pen and a smaller battery?

    I'm not that excited paying top dollar for 6-8 month old hardware in a new package.

    What gives?

    Apparently less edge. 64GB and micro sd is huge and ditto for the 820. For a lot of folks though, your point seems valid none the less.

    It seems Verizon only offers the 32 gb version of the S7, so for me there would be a difference between the Note 7 and the S7. Also, we don't know for sure yet about the Note battery size.

    Yea, I forgot about the 64GB internal storage. I would pay for a 128GB or 256GB of internal storage but it's not going to happen.

    To be honest, not really.

    I loved the S7 edge. It's still my favorite phone of the year right now.

    From what I see with the Note7, they took almost everything I liked about it and added the S Pen, some software stuff and other stuff like USB-C and 64GB of internal storage. Seems like it might even get an aluminum alloy upgrade as well. I'm still a little bummed over the slightly smaller battery (though it's 2.8% smaller, so not a really huge deal to me) and still not really feeling the iris scanner.

    I understand why some might be bummed, especially for the price, but to me, I like it.

    For me Coming from a Note 5, The battery is 500 mAh larger than the Note 5, the expandable storage option is back and water resistance. Those 3 things alone make it worth it to me. Obviously if you are coming from an s7 edge i see your point because you already have all of that without the spen. but if you are coming from a Note 4 or 5 it's a win. My battery crapped the bed after marshmallow, so I'm looking forward to getting back to what i had and more.

    Little bit... It would have been great to have at least SD 821 which probably is tiny bit more efficient and powerful than 820. I would pick the S7 edge if got the latest TouchWiz which Note 7 will have. Can't wait for months before S7 edge finally gets it, so as it stands now Note7 over edge because of software.

    No I'm not rooting and put the custom ROM on the edge, too lazy to do all those these days.

    If it comes out with some stupid price tag like near $900 I will be tempted to buy an unlocked Edge from Best Buy or wait for the LG v20 which would probably be cheaper.

    Old hardware?

    New S-Pen
    USB Type C
    Iris Scanner
    New CPU


    Only thing that makes this seem the same as the s7 edge is the curves, ram and similar battery.


    Though this is all speculation still mad will have to wait for th official announcement, but it's a whole new phone compared to the Note 5 ( with micro so sd, bigger battery, and water resistance, and the other features mentioned above) and only has an aesthetic and a few spec differences with the S7 edge.

    Samsungs biggest mistake was not putting usb type c on the s7 and edge. Now that is old hardware

    I'm looking at this one pretty hard but I'm digging the expandable storage option returning. Let's see where the price lands.

    Completely agree. The only new aspect is a micro sd card but if you have a 64GB note 5 like I do then its enough.

    Comparing with the S7 edge not a big improvement but Note 7 is sure a big improvement than Note 5 in every area.

    Speaking of Edge S7, my coworker showed me his Olympic special edition and it's awfully sick looking. The subtle Olympic ring colors are really cool! But I know what you mean...

    No because it is an upgrade from my Note 4.

    I originally got my Note in order to read text more comfortably (bigger screen). Is there a reason to believe that, in that respect, Note 7 will be any any better than s7 Edge?

    The Note7 should only be compared to the Note5. They are 2 different lines.
    The fact that they made the S7 Edge only .2 inches smaller is besides the point. I don't like the S7 edge screen, but it sounds like the Note7 edge will be tolerable. Add the bigger battery, USB-C, better camera, micro SD storage, faster charging, SD 820 and waterproofing, you have a pretty decent upgrade.
    For me, who has only being upgrading to the next Note every year, it works for me. There is no other phone out there right now that stacks up to this.

    It's gonna be the newer snap dragon. Not the 820.

    I believe the Note 4 was about 10 phones ago for me. Note 7 will be a huge improvement for you.

    From all the leaks, there has been nothing on it having an 820 so I wouldn't worry about it.
