    So I was lucky to play with the note 7 for a couple hours today....

    What I learned:
    Rumored specs are confirmed correct
    64gb only variant.

    This is the first phone ever that has "HDR".
    Iris scanner works very well, even with glasses. Only complication is glasses IF there is a glare.

    Phone is IP67 with or without the pen inserted.

    Pressure sensitivity is DOUBLED!

    Camera is exact same from the s7.

    Software:

    EXTREMELY REFINED! Looks a lot like that leaked video a couple months ago of the Samsung UX. No dramatic colors. Everything is refined and very flat. No abysmal colors in the status bar.

    They have a Gif maker for existing or new videos.
    Don't know if that's new...

    Look and feel;

    This phone feels slightly heavier, very solid and feels really comfortable in the hand. They refined the "edge" it's not as dramatic as the s7 edge and it's really well done. The edge is more used as a bezel remover and not a feature. But you still have the functionality.

    The black Note 7 is actually a flat black. It's looks amazing. It looks like a bat phone. The color was eye catching on it..

    Pre order is : August 3rd.

    Release date is August 19th.

    Pre order bonus ether : Gear Fit 2 OR A 256GB MEMORY CARD.

    Nice!! Gear fit 2 is what I'll choose to go along with the usual T-Mobile 1 year of Netflix. Don't even remember when I last paid for Netflix

    Hmm, there seems to be conflicting info on the pre-order bonus. I'm hoping they offer the Gear VR like they did with the S7.

    So lucky you got to play with it. 256 GB card is pretty cool. Don't think I'd go for a gear fit 2. You know anything about whether a bogof will be offered?

    Gear VR will launch a later date and will not be a pre order with the phone

    Hmm..since the new Note will require that VR to be used, it's odd that they would release it later.

    So same specs like the S7 edge, no removable battery, no 4k screen and basically the same camera ?

    If Samsung believes people are going to pay a premium for just the S Pen only they are out of their mind. Gonna hang on to my Note 4 another year

    If you are hoping for removable battery that's not going to happen in the near future. 4k screen probably next year though I'm OK with the current screen resolutions. Generally every year Note series has something extra in the hardware specs compared to the S series but this year nothing other than iris scanner.

    I actually would. I like the S7e, but I wanted an S Pen.

    This fits the bill, along with 64GB of internal storage and some other less-significant upgrades.
