    If the battery isn't removable, doesn't that mean that the cover can't be popped? And if so, can a SIMM be swapped in case of international travel?
    If the back is non-removable , the SIM card would be in a tray on the side of the phone or the top.

    No. Going to get a Note 5 to replace my Note 3, which is like new. Waited to see the Note 7.. Don't like the S7Edge type screen at all. To bad they didn't ask Note owners what they wanted.

    The back cannot be popped -- the SIM card tray can be popped out from the top though (where you also add the SD card).

    I'm not saying any of this to insult anyone, this is just an important distinction. Power users define their experience, they don't let the hardware define it. They're like MacGyver. They can get you your 10 hours of SOT out of a banana. And give you half of it back to make banana bread. With your shoelace. So let's no longer entertain the myth of power user when the power user says they are reliant on ANY nonstandard feature in order to achieve their status.

    I find your illustration to be quite intriguing because isn't MacGyver the one who would make it work with a piece of junk older device rather than with the newest device with all the bells and whistles? So a MacGyver, power user, would likely be able to use the Note 4 and it's features in a way that would get the job done instead of having to pay three times as much for a device that does almost the same things right?

    As for me, I'm skipping the Note 7 but I did pre-order a Coral Blue one for my daughter. She's not a power user, just a typical young girl who likes the shiny new devices that look cool plus she likes the SPen to take notes.

    The best part is this: "Most smart phones are pretty great nowadays. Needing SPEC upgrades is totally unimportant to me at this point (perhaps with the battery capacity being the 1 exception.) For example, no benefit would be achieved in everyday use if the Note 7 had a 821 instead of a 820 processor. It would not affect most folks day-to-day use one bit IMO...."

    While I AM part of the "I'd really like a removable battery crowd," I can see ways around this battery issue if I absolutely wanted this new device and had a compelling reason to get it over competitors' devices or what I have now. So, I actually HAVE gone to Step 2 and thought about the rest, because this is just about when I get the itch and want something new just because...I want something new. (What can I say.....I have a disease of upgrade-itis.)

    The real question is...why? I'm not sure I can find an answer there. Perhaps I'm recovering from upgrade-itis. It's very, very expensive. My Note 4 is still a great device, working perfectly. It does everything I want. It is perfectly configured (and with all the tweaks I have, that is no easy task). So, I get some incremental upgrades in speed like the poster was talking about. Most of them I won't even notice on a daily basis. I do see a couple of N7 features I would like (waterproofing.....!), but nothing that makes me feel that what I am using has become obsolete and in need of a "gotta have it right now" upgrade (I joined this forum in 1999 with VisorCentral; here is how many I have dropped in the water: zero).

    I just don't see a compelling reason to upgrade. We have reached an era of "good enough," just like laptops and desktops. Everything does the job. Incremental advances just aren't that compelling. When (a) my current phone starts to show problems; or (b) the collective buildup of new features makes it feel obsolete to me and I'm looking wistfully at my seat companion on a train; or (c) there is finally a feature so great that it makes me say "Yeah! Gotta have it," like in the old days, then it's time to upgrade again. I'm just not feeling it. It looks like a great phone. If I needed it, I might buy it. But I don't see why I should run out and buy it.

    I think others have noted this--I certainly didn't invent it--but the manufacturers are acknowledging it, too. We have moved into a different era. Things are changing with respect to upgrade cycles. I just don't see that the impulse to keep upgrading regularly will ever be as strong as it was a few years ago.
    Well written, and I agree with this. Most new flagships are pretty great and there might not be that much innovation left on this platform - though that too is somewhat in the eye of the beholder.

    Not buying the note 7, my Oneplus 3 is as close to my perfect device as it gets and it's less than half the price! If I did want to go the Samsung route the S7 or S7 edge seems like a better buy. I think Samsung dropped the ball on the note 7, most note users are used to bigger devices so implementing the edge screens to fit a larger screen in the same body size of a note 5 would have been pretty remarkable. A 5.9 inch dual edged screen with a bigger battery in the same dimensions as the note 5 would've been an instant buy.

    Already ordered the silver! I have been a good girl for two years (give or take), and in truth, with Marshmellow, I could go at LEAST another year with my 4.
    But not gonna do it! I am going to yoke myself to Verizon for another two years, and get my new baby!

    I am on the Note 4, and my phone has been a little wonky recently. I stopped by and looked at the N7 and the black is beautiful. I wish they had the blue on display, hoping to see it tonight. After that I will pre-order. I don't see how folks don't see the N7 as an upgrade, other than the battery. I will miss that, but I hot swap infrequently, and the battery back pack will suit my needs.

    Also, I will say the edges on the N7 are very different from those on the S7e. If you are basing your opinion on the S7e, you should look at the N7. I like both, but the N7 is a significantly better looking phone, and the edge is more understated and better looking.

    I'm thinking of getting it.... Not sure yet... If the curve were not there, it would be yes. Comparing to the Note 5, the Note 7 display seems constrained and can't shake my perception of that.

    Handled one for two hours at best buy today and from what I can tell it's a step above the S7 edge in both design and function. There are a lot of features I liked compared to the S7 edge and my own note 3. Personally I want to get the phone, but will be waiting until Flossy Carter does his long winded but informative Real Review later down the road.

    I very much agree with this.

    Phones have gotten really good, to the point where even a bi-yearly upgrade is tough to recommend.
