    I ordered the black today from Best Buy. Main reasons are I like their service where I live and no registration at Samsung needed to get the 256gb card. They do it automatically and the 256gb card is supposed to be ready to pick up with my N7 on the 19th.

    I like my MXPE, but the battery life is weak and the 808 runs hot when gaming. The radio is also a power sucking demon in weak signals areas. The 820 apparently reduces those issues along with the amoled display and 500mah more battery.

    Added

    The Force Z was not considered due to no 3.5mm jack and smaller display on bigger device than N7. Also think the pen function is much better than past Notes.

    I initially ordered from best buy today but I got worried they wouldn't have enough stock to fill all the pre orders which they sometimes have problems with. I cancelled the order and ordered from Verizon instead. They have the same shipping estimates. I don't really need any of the freebies so if it takes time to get them I'm all set. So far Verizon so says ships by the 19th and they are pretty accurate normally.

    The 256gb card is a mighty good freebie BB where I live said they would be fine for orders placed so far.

    I've ordered my case from Amazon and now waiting for the phone to come out. I'm in Canada so our pre-order deals aren't nearly as rich. I notice Best Buy had choice of 64GB card or Gear fit and Costco has a or order deal too. I'm thinking I will check out Costco (Canada) at the time of launch. I recently updated my wife to the S7 and my daughter to iPhone SE and walked out ahead in cash cards even after purchasing the phones.

    Yes I'm all in!

    01 64 Gigs
    02 Dual Edge Display
    03 Iris Scanner I tried it and works (and it should after 4 years in development)
    04 Ability to go QHD>FHD>HD, with 2 battery saver modes that lower the screen resolution to save battery
    05 IP68 water resistant rating with phone as well as the S Pen & silo
    06 HDR video streaming w/Amazon Video.
    07 Secret Folder
    08 S Pen GIF-making along with other new S Pen features
    09 Blue light filter switch in the notification shade
    10 Type-C reversible connector
    11 Icon pack support in the Themes menu
    12 Always on display
    13 Gorilla Glass 5
    14 Less bulky (Feels better in hand)
    15 Alarm night display (used it all the time on my note 4 edge)
    16 Better Camera than my other notes
    17 Larger battery
    18 Better processor

    Extras: micro USB adapter in the box, 256gb micro SD card option (Pre-orders), Unique blue coral color, already sold my note 5

    I'm sure all these have been mentioned and I'm sure there's some that I'm missing (I may have doubled up on some things too), but these are my reasons.
    Keep in mind that I'm comparing these features to some of the other notes (I've owned and sold the note 2, note 3, note 4 edge & note 5)

    Well the s7e has 3600 even though its screen is smaller. I admitted to being foolish for getting excited about leaks. It's my own fault.
    Remember that the note 7 has alot less space to deal with ma ly the spen and the hardware for the iris scanner so samsung couldn't possibly fit a bigger battery inside given the slimmer device n more internal equipment plus regarding the 6 bg of ram not needed samsung knows what it is doing and I'm sure it would have put 6 gb of ram of the device really needed it or loik at it this way maybe samsung is saving other features for later improvement instead of throwing all its eggs into one basket so tjat it has room to grow the following year

    My local AT&T company stores have the Note7 on display. Unfortunately, the security device they attach to the back interferes with any attempt to get a feel for the device in hand.

    I think this could be said for most phones. It makes them easier to bend/break. Plus, just a personal preference that I like some weight to a phone. I find it allows for a better hold, not like a feather that could drop if my grip lets up in the slightest.

    The majority don't seem to want it thicker and the thicker it is the less comfortable it is.

    I think many find a little thicker more comfortable but I don't deny computer and cell phone companies are in an inexplicable competition for the thinnest. Lighter is better surely but thinner? I can't even hold some of the thinner models comfortably in my hand so I use a thick case. Maybe thinner is more comfortable in a pocket I don't know. I do think folks wouldn't be screaming about a few mm of thickness if they got a 4000 mAh battery. Sincere people can disagree on this point.

    I have to say that I think OEMs have have given thiinness too much importance lately. When phones were thicker a few years ago, making them thinner was on many people's minds. Nowadays most phones are very thin already. I

    In this case, the Note is so thin already that I bet just about everyone would sacrifice 1mm of thickness to add 500 Mah of battery (which I believe would be possible). 1mm is worth it for me, and I bet most ...

    That said, I am happy with the 3500 Mah.

    Samsung does some of the most extensive market data research, across the world.

    The Note 5 battery was a smaller battery than the Note 4 and yet the Note 5 battery performed much better than the Note 4 battery.

    The Note 4 was the most uncomfortable Samsung phone I have ever owned.

    Another problem with Samsung making the Note more of a fashion phone is all the S line fanboys jumping on board and trying to tell others what's important what isn't. Well I'm sorry I decide what's an important upgrade and what isn't...slightly improved specs over an already beastly phone, extremely hard to repair design and a sealed battery aren't with no IR blaster aren't, period.

    Will the Note 7 well a lot of phones? Yes it will but the point is it's not future proof...it's probably the last Samsung flagship with a qhd screen, no VR compatibility. Yes maybe phones are at a point now where marginal updates are the norm add to that the cost cutting side...Samsung gets to clear more inventory space of an already 7 months old tech by now selling 3 phones with the same cpu.

    I can remember my daddy saying, "I'll never need a computer with a faster processor (not processors) than 1ghz."

    Well he did and look where we are now. Technology advances at ebbs and flows. Sometimes it is so much and so fast is it overwhelming. Sometimes it seems slow because we don't know what is happening behind the scenes.

    Every year I keep waiting for that Samsung phone with the foldable screen they keep working on and testing..

    Extensive market research is based on a good selection, not necessarily the amount. Insights program is just one thing they do and that includes all kinds of devices and monitoring how people actually use the device, things they may not even realize themselves they are using a lot.

    If you aren't using your phone for VR, QHD is perfectly fine. 1080p tv's are fine for most people as well. Everyone has different needs. It's up to the manufacturers to determine where to put their money.
    I don't think many people make their buying decisions based on how hard a phone is to repair. I am sure Samsung doesn't even consider this lately. They put more energy into making a phone that won't need to be repaired.

    I have the Note 4 as well (wife uses it now). The Note 5 is definitely more comfortable to hold, but I don't attribute that in any way to thinness. The Note 4 was plenty thin IMO. The Note 4 had sharper edges, and was WIDER than the Note 5.

    Right now....probably not.

    I don't see it being that much of an upgrade over my S7 Edge. A pen and a .2" larger screen just doesn't seem like it's worth the $200 upgrade, imo. I'll probably wait until LG announces more about the V20 and then make a decision.
    You'll get a pen, larger screen and a smaller battery
