    I'm pretty sure the reason Samsung hasn't "learned" from the removable battery issue is because they actually learned that the vast majority of consumers who prefer excellent design and build quality far outnumber those who wanna trade build quality for removable battery. Just sayin'.

    For those who hate the Note 7, please, go buy a Moto or HTC and then come back and tell us how you feel because I am sure those phones are much better suited for your needs.

    No problem that you don't like the N7. Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, but some of you are acting like your mom didn't make you the right cake for your birthday. It's not personal, it is business. If this phone had everything you wanted, it would have cost more than $1,000 and then you would be complaining about that as well.

    Oh, and good luck with that Jelly Bean and crawling browser while the rest of us are R O C K I N G our awesome new phones!!

    I know many are very unimpressed with the note 7. But it seems like we aren't alone in our disappointment with samsung.

    Forbes = Apple propaganda! I have no clue, actually. His rationale though IMO is sound and it is obvious by specs the Note is no longer the spec leader for their devices. They are taking the parity approach it seems.

    That, or the 821 is not available to cover Samsung's demand. The 823 is still in development with low production testing, so that was not happening.

    It's somewhat crazy the note line use to represent innovation and new design language, and pretty much everything Samsung had it was the premier phone. Now as of the GS6, they have gone with a different philosophy the note is now the follower pretty much for two Gens now being an S line with an S-Pen sure it has software differences but at the core the note is an Edge refined vs. the new design coming to notes and the S line follow. This is what Samsung did with the Note, Note 2, Note 3, and Note 4, then out of the blue said naaa we want the notes to follow the GS line. Either way, you are either for it or not but everyone will live on and so will the device.

    Uh, I do. I went from a Note 4 to an S7 edge. Fast charging and Fast Wireless charging are nowhere near as convenient as being able to swap a battery out. Being tethered to a charger now really sucks. And the Fast Wireless charger is extremely slow when you have your screen turned on.
    Get a Mophie power pack. You won't be tethered ever again.

    Contrary to public belief within this thread and forum Forbes has posted many articles this year and last year with the same negative review and discussion concerning the iPhone, Apple Watch, and Apple music. I am not sure where folks are getting pro-Apple because that is a lie also the WSJ same way. These guys all go back and forth lets not just quote parts of articles that sway the convo to a fanboy type rally. The thing is Android, IOS both are good both produce good and bads and the handsets are the same there is no perfect everyone is different and folks are going to either like something or not and you the same.

    Is there a reason that people get attacked for expressing their opinion, just because it differs from what someone else thinks? If they aren't impressed with the Note7 then they're not impressed. It's not going to stop the people who want the phone from buying it so why does it bother people that some expected/wanted more from the Note7? Differences of opinion should be expected because we all use our devices OUR own way. What's right for me might not be what's right for you, and that's okay.

    To be honest, I've never considered Forbes to be a reliable source for anything tech.

    I just go there every now and then to see what's new, but I've never made it one of my sources for tech news. Doesn't seem reliable enough.

    Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and while I partially agree that the Note isn't the hard-hitting specs-for-days phablet it used to be, I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing, but of course, you may think differently and that is totally fine.

    It's mob mentality. A lot of folks have Note 7 blinders on and only want to hear similar viewpoints. Go against the mob and you get crushed....

    I personally wish removable batteries would return, but understand why they won't and have dealt with it. That's not to say people can't still express disappointment that the Note 7 doesn't have it.

    Not sure "people" are being attacked but their expectations of what they think the N7 should be are being attacked. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and when posters come and criticize the new phone, those who like the phone will fight back.

    ...any fool can see their Note7 sales are going to get hit hard compared to the Note5's..
    So, you're not a fan then? :-)

    I would respectfully disagree with everything you wrote. There are many improvements from the Note 5 to the Note 7 (which I bet you actually do know), such as:

    - Bigger Battery
    - Water reisitance
    - Return of the SD card
    - Better faster camera
    - New HDR screen
    - Cool new S-Pen functionality
    - Faster CPU
    - Faster graphics
    - Always on display (if you like that)
    - etc


    If you don't like any of these, or they aren't acceptable to you, I wish you happy hunting. I am thrilled with the announcement and can't wait to check out my new phone.

    Would not go as far as to say mob mentality. The title of the post regards the opinion of Forbes. If Phil Nickinson had his doubts, the thread would hold more weight and would not contain as many sarcastic remarks.

    What are you talking about? The Note 7 is loaded with power user features.
    More power and fewer features would be better imo. I don't care about iris scanner nor removable battery but I would like a bigger battery. I have to admit I will always miss ir blaster but LG just doesn't make a phone as dependable as Samsung.

    Um, I'm not too sure about that.

    Remember that the Note5 wasn't available in Europe. The Note7 will be. So that's already one significant advantage the 7 has.

    Will it sell in S7 numbers? Not really, especially since the Note usually sells fewer units compared to the S. Will it sell in high numbers? Probably, but I'm not holding my breath.

    the only thing it doesn't have is IR Blaster for remote control and removable back. People need to get on with life and let the past go. In every other aspect the N7 is the best phone on the planet right now. Hell Samsung even came up with an battery back that a 1000x better than that brick Apple came up with.
    Is there a battery back for Note 7? Tell me more.

    I have had N1, N2, N3, N Edge, S7E and while the N7 is not so different from the Current S7/S7E as prior Note versions were, this is by design. the Note is now a mainstream device and not aimed at a limited user group any more. There is some additional refinement of the 7 series with the bigger screen and added function of the s-pen and enabled apps. this is the evolution of the Note series of devices. Just my Opinion tho..

    Cheers.

    Let's face it. The glory days when new phone models wowed everyone with useful features and improved technology are over. Despite the half-hearted review, the Note 7 isn't a pig with lipstick. It is more like a Note 4 with lipstick (and no removable battery).
