    Did the black have a similar mirror like quality as the silver? I was hoping for a more matte black.

    Not real shiny. Back seems more like plastic than glass but is a fingerprint magnet. I will use a case. Need to see blue to decide.

    The black back appears painted on rather clear glass with black layer beneath.(no idea how it is built really) Looks different than s7e. More conservative, less pretty.

    Camera is amazing

    Only 37 gb of internal memory available. 800 mb of ram available out of 4. Cleanmaster controls storage.

    The back of the black model doesn't seem as reflective as the silver model.
    It doesn't seem as bad, but might still annoy me. I thought about putting a skin on it to get rid of the fingerprints. Maybe a carbon fiber skin or something. I'd just have to see how it goes. The back of the phone would have been better as matte black aluminum. Don't they know that everyone hates fingerprints??

    Starting today, if anyone is able to find the Note 7, live, in-person, please let us know! I was going to check Best Buy but I think it might take a week or so before they have it.
    Saw it at BB today. My first thought was that it looks pretty slick.

    My 2nd - - that the screen is not as bright as it used to be. Did anybody else think that?

    I was thinking about getting a skin as well. Maybe a nice leather one that adds a small amount of cushioning, or at least some extra grip.

    It's the same resolution as the Note 5 isn't it?
    It had the black purple angled stroke wallpaper applied to the device I saw couple of hours ago.

    I just seen the demo both at T-Mobile and Best Buy. I like it not to much different than my S7e. but a upgrade none the less. I'm glad I chose the black over the blue.

    Saw the black and the silver today at Best Buy. Glad I ordered the black, it looked good. They had 4 tethered and the guy working in the Samsung experience area also had one behind the counter not tethered.

    Went by another Verizon corporate store today and took a couple pictures showing the Verizon Bloat (not too bad) and other apps on the Note 7.
    Here are some pictures. Noticed the S Pen was pretty hard to take out of the phone. Need some small fingers or nails.

    I like how Verizon conveniently placed all their bloatware in a folder for easier removal .

    37gb free? No wonder 64gb is the minimum.

    Wow... For real? Windows 10 uses less on both fronts... You'd think a smartphone wouldn't use as much as a full-fledged desktop OS.

    There will be more storage available then that. The demo mode takes up a lot of storage space.

    Note that demonstration store units tend to have much less storage due to all the demo stuff that's preloaded.

    Most people I know that have a note uses the S pen for like a week then never use it again. Also 5.5 inches is big enough in my opinion

    The Best Buy in Clackamas, OR has them out. It's a gorgeous phone, but navigation feels leggy compared to my Moto X Pure. I've never had a Samsung phone, but every one I've ever fiddled with has felt a bit laggy and not very responsive compared to the Moto and HTC phones that I've had.

    Honestly carrier tramp stamps don't bother me. If mine said T-Mobile it wouldn't matter.

    Only one of the Best Buy stores near me had them out. They had both black and silver, which are the ones I'm debating between. Definitely going to go with the silver. I had also called the AT&T store, which I'm pretty sure is a corporate store, and they didn't even know when it was going to be released. I told them on the 19th, and he said "we'll probably get it it to put on display the Saturday before that."
    At&T phone users could always go into one of the other cell phone company stores (like Verizon) and check it out there. The phone will be pretty much the same except for differing bloatware, and a different carrier logo stamped on the back. They can also check them out at Best Buy stores, like you did mellyf.

    Yea, its like they just don't want to take my money. Well, I guess they'd be happy to take it, but they won't trade me money for a phone for another 2 weeks. Maybe someday a company will announce a phone and then have it available for sale the next day. I don't know why it can't work that way.
    I hear ya, last year it was announced at the first of the week and on sale the friday of the same week.. i was hoping for that again but no luck!

    Two week wait is going to take forever!

    I stopped into Best Buy and checked them out yesterday also. I was hoping to see the Blue Coral in person, but no joy. The Black Onyx is sick, though!
