    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
    well we know it will be a great phone no doubts about that but each year it becomes harder to make big jumps.

    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.
    To me, the key for the Note was originally just the screen size. It was the "S" series with a big screen. I didn't really care if there was a pen or not. I see the utility of the pen and why some love it--I just don't myself have much use for it. Like you, I mostly used it for screen captures (which, btw, came in handy. For that, I really liked it.)

    samsung really ticked me off with the note 7,,,,,not faster than the edge, should have bigger screen, cpu, more ram....i am going to switch to apple or maybe one of the new chineese phones......and that curved screen,,sucks big time...i have the note 4, and will not upgrade...samsung did not do anything i liked...struck out...thought they would be smarter than that....
    The curved screen is not like the S7 Edge, you should go check it out at a local store in BestBuy. I think you are going to love it. I checked it out today and it is just way different and better than the S7 edge physically.

    It isn't as pronounced. No false touches, etc.

    When you hold both of them you will notice the difference in terms of the screen and the edges. It just feels different.

    I only bought it because my youngest sister wanted a Note as her new phone. She'll be coming from an iPhone 5s. I, personally, am happy with my s7edge.

    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 like his reviews but my decision wouldn't hinge on what he has to say..... He seems to like all of his phones but he does a good job with the pros and cons and what he uses each phone for.

    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.
    It is great these days if you are buying a used phone.....you can get good stuff at a reasonable price. Right now you can actually get new phones for a reasonable price after a year or even a few months as newer models roll out.

    Planned to buy outright from Best Buy. They won't accept a preorder if you want to buy outright in store. They told me to preorder online but you can't select the memory card online. May just wait it out and see wait the next Nexus and iPhone have to offer.

    I took the Note 7 hands on tonight at my local Best Buy. We have a Samsung store inside so I knew where to look. The Note 7 looks and feels great. What took me by surprise was how it felt in the hand, not that it matters given I'd throw a case on it. Anyway, it felt good and the S-pen was light-years better than the Note 4. The point was so thin that I felt like I was writing on real paper with a real pen on the Note 7's screen. It was really cool. I still can't justify spending that sort of money for the Note 7 but it definitely gave me a different opinion. I'd like 6gb of RAM for it to be as future proof as possible and to have 128gb of on board storage so that I don't HAVE to pop in a 128gb SD card.

    Nice device. I might jump on, just need a longer test drive before I pull the trigger. The lack of future proofing the phone hurts a little.

    I have to say the N7 is growing on me. I'm still going to see what the Nexus Marlin brings to the table. By then, maybe the unlocked version of the N7 may be out, and hopefully Nougat will be on it out of the box. One thing I see that mitigates the edge display is that it seems minimized as compared to the S7E.

    One question, I really like screen protectors. How do they work with edge displays?

    If you don't care about the S-Pen, then you won't be disappointed. It's a good phone.

    I find the lower cost and slightly larger battery of the S7E appealing, but prefer the minimalist edge display of the N7. That in itself puts the N7 on top for me. I have little use for the S-Pen, or at least I didn't use it much with my N2.

    I will keep my Note 4 as a backup, but I can't wait to get the Note 7! The ONLY reason I didn't get the Note 5 was because the took out expandable storage. I look forward to the Note 7, just as I will be looking forward to the Note 8 next year as well. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Š

    I'm on the fence. My N5 still purrs like a kitten and it still meets my needs. I did N3 - N5 and am just undecided right now. I'll probably decide after a bit of real use reviews. That usually tells the real picture. That, and the tips and tricks videos! Love those

    I pulled the trigger this morning. I was curious about the V20 and the Nexus devices but from current leaks it sounds like they wo t offer anything above and beyond the Note really.

    For me, it seems that this is the best device available at the moment and likely for the remainder of the year. There will always be something new and better coming but you have to deal with the information you have at the time and work with that.

    Solid device with unique features.

    I'm coming from a LG G4.

    The Coral Blue is very nice! The metal trim looked almost a bit more copper to me than gold.

    That's what turned me off the blue and why I went black. It really was more of a copper than rose gold. It looked off to me. I think silver would have looked slick.
