    After the second time messing around with this phone....yeah. This phone is definitely "tighter" than the S7 Edge.
    But man, that Verizon bloatware. I'm going to hop on that "Package Disabler Pro" bandwagon early.

    So to get around all the carrier bloat by getting an unlocked phone, how long will it typically be before BestBuy, etc. begin selling unlocked versions? Or is that still too new a concept for there to be a history?

    Speaking of bloat, I really like the Samsung calendar. I've tried a bunch and paid for a lot of pro versions, but keep coming back to the S-Cal. Is the Sammy calendar available in the Sammy store for unlocked phones?

    All of Touchwiz (including the Samsung Calendar) will be present on unlocked phones. It will just be free of carrier apps..

    I pre ordered a black onyx today at the T-Mobile store. The guy had a Coral Blue one in the drawer that he let me play with for a bit. It is going to be their display unit but they haven't gotten word yet to put them out. The Coral Blue is very nice! The metal trim looked almost a bit more copper to me than gold. I was tempted, but that stealth black really won me over this year. It also felt amazing in the hand. It actually felt thinner than the Note 5,though I don't think it is.

    On a side note, the guy told me that he already dropped the phone on the floor. He showed me some scuffs on the back glass and on the metal trim where he dropped it. Surprisingly the front and back glass looked completely intact. I was pleasantly surprised. Of course it's all a matter of the angle you drop it at, but it was at least encouraging that this phone isn't a dainty flower.

    Are you referring to the reply below? Yes I agree with you. The response is rude and inappropriate.
    "Then go buy a phone with more than 4gb ram, larger than 3500mah,and faster than s820."

    Same with the comment below but not that obvious. But for me it sounded like "If you don't like my phone then go get a another phone".
    "Well the latest leaks from reliable sources all pointed to 3500...if you need another 100mah...there are phones that provide larger battery."

    I went here in this forum specifically on this topic because I am interested to buy the note 7 and would like to see the opinion of others. But I am also one of those people who were disappointed. But it does not mean I would be looking for another phone already. I love the samsung note series and have all of them from the first Note to Note 5. I think the best thing to say is something like "Even though it's only 4GB RAM, 3500maH and S820 processor, there shouldn't be any noticeable differences when in use with real world applications". If there is nothing good to say then just don't reply

    Well that is just my opinion hope I did not offend anyone. Now I will continue reading until the end of this thread and will decide later if I should get the note 7 or not

    No, I will not be buying this phone at the moment.

    If you buy the Galaxy S phone, you know you will own the latest and most powerful phone for a year.
    But if you buy the Galaxy Note phone, you know you will own the lastest and most powerful phone only for a few months before the next Galaxy S phone is released in the market.
    For me if they are making the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note similar in specs, then they might just release them at the same time. Just my opinion.
    So for now I will just wait for the Galaxy S8 and see what it has to offer. Can always buy the Note 7 after few years just for collection purposes

    Many people in this thread are missing the point of the Note. The point of the Galaxy Note line is the note taking ability with the S Pen. That's it. It is for people who will use it for productivity. It doesn't need to be faster. It doesn't need more RAM. It doesn't need a better camera. The focus of the device always has been and always will be the S Pen. I went on a class trip to a retirement home where we were given a short tour of the facility and I took notes entirely on my phone. That's the type of thing the phone is meant for.

    False, the point of the Note has always been releasing the best possible phone with the latest technology. If a phone with a 400 dollar price can have better or equal specs there is no reason why a 800 dollar phone can't. The note till the Note 4 was known as a no compromise productivity beast thanks to top specs and the S Pen features.

    This is a pure cost cutting move for Samsung they get to move more old inventory stuff add a gimmick like the curved screen and increase the mark up by 100 dollars.

    it's sad really because the phone has a lot going for it but for 800 bucks top of the line specs are expected and so is a removable battery for a productivity device. The problem with this strategy is simple basically the release of the S8, S8Edge line will already show us what to expect from the Note 8 which is sad, because the Note line up used to the one pushing limits not the fashion flagship (s lineup)

    Ore just maybe the note line is now going to be seen in Samsung eyes as having the same quality of specs at the same time. The days of the note getting the latest might be gone and maybe they should bring them out at the same time. Note 7 like the other S phones this year is fantastic with still very good specs. Those who want an even bigger screen/S pen features will get the note and those who need a smaller and no S pen gets the S7/edge.

    All 3 devices are on the same tier and are arguably the best phones around now.

    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.
    Love flossy! He is so awesome lol love how he rips case boxes up lmao!

    I love the iPhone don't get me wrong I just had 5S-6 than a week later 6PLUS than 6s plus almost a year it's almost 3.5-4 years I want a change.
    I MIGHT or might not go back to Apple. It's nice it's big it does everything I need it to except make phone calls which I can't handle anymore.
    Volume is too soft - nothing I do brings it up!
    I'm hearing impaired and my husbands lgg3 LOUD volume!
    I'm repeatedly using my headphones for phone calls-
    I'll miss FaceTime for sure- my moms in Europe but I have an iPad we can use

    I'm jumping from an iPhone 6s Plus to the note 7. It may be a bit difficult at first cause I've never had an android phone. Does anyone have any pointers on switching?

    My brother went from Android to Apple back to Android. I'd say just Google your questions or come out here. You will get answers.

    That's what I find really useful with the Note.

    You're probably gonna see me wield the S Pen quite frequently.

    I always liked the Note but I never use it for note taking. I use the S Pen to do screen captures to either post on Facebook, Twitter or other sites. I also use it to get a copy of a picture on some sites that don't allow the viewer to save a copy.

    I very much agree with this.

    Phones have gotten really good, to the point where even a bi-yearly upgrade is tough to recommend.
    The precise reason why the industry is moving at ludicrous speed to sealed batteries (force two year retirement curve). LG might not to afford them some differentiation.

    see exactly my point if the Note doesn't offer better specs why wait this long to release it? Just release it with the S line since its degraded to a bigger S edge with a stylus anyways. Is the Note 7 a great phone ? Time will tell it has a lot going for it but I expected a jump like note 3 to note 4 and that didn't happen

    Yeah, I never considered the actual Samsung apps to be "bloat". S Planner (the calendar app) is what I use on TouchWiz phones. On a Moto X or Nexus, Google Calendar

    I will pass on it as IMO i think phones have reached the point that incremental upgrades just won't do it for me. I agee with someone that said they might as well release it with the S7 as whats the point now that they are just about similar other than size and some added features.
