    There is already a Galaxy Note 8, has been for years. It's a tablet. It looked just like the Galaxy Note 2, but 8 inches.
    That makes you wonder if they'll name it the same next year. It's been long enough though the could probably get away with it.

    They can merge the two completely and say Samsung Galaxy S8 Note

    Hi guys. I have had every single Note from 1 to 5 the same week of release. However, I will be skipping the 7. I have played with the phone on 4 different occasions and each time I come out underwhelmed.

    I am not saying that the Note 5 is better than the 7, that would be ignorant of the facts. I do think that the 5 feels more solid and seems to be better constructed as I can almost see between the seams of the 7. The 7 also feels a bit like plastic as opposed to glass.
    The S pen that most said now feels like a real pen is actually even thinner and actually feels less of a real pen to me. Even though the tip is slimmer, to me, it's too slim as I don't know any normal pens with a top that skinny. The speed and feel when you write feels no faster or different to me. I actually prefer the pen on the 5.

    I could go on and on. But to summarize my thoughts, I think that the Note 7 is seriously overrated and not that much of an upgrade, at least for me. For instance, I have never water damaged my phone in 17 years of cell phone ownership. The fingerprint scanner is faster and more practical than the Iris scanner. Bigger battery but it will still suck, especially after a few months..Suffice it to say that I will be keeping my 5 and after trying to like the 7, I feel that much better about my choice.

    I am by no means here to spoil everyone's excitement, as there is obviously an abundance of it. I am just a bit curious if I am the only one who have made these observations or feel this way. I doesn't help that I am pissed at Samsung for intentionally gimping the Note 5 on battery and storage to sell the 7, as well as forcing us to deal with a curved screen.

    They don't expect you to upgrade. Those who upgrade every year, yes it isn't a "huge update" they are aiming for those with 2 year old phones.

    These "not impressed" threads show up every Samsung release. They really shouldn't surprise anyone anymore. People say they don't like them, but they always wind up with more responses they any other threads, because of people defending the phone, and the person coming back to justify his/her original post. These types of threads will continue to show up as long as they get people going.

    Man, there were so many of these threads when the S7 was announced. And I think fans have to learn to take the good with the bad.

    Ultimately, it doesn't effect a thing either way. The Note 7 will probably be phone of the year, despite some disappointed former fans.

    If my note 5 was 64g I think I would just keep it for another year. Nonetheless, I am exited for the 7. It addresses pretty much any minor shortcomings that the note 5 had. I don't really get the complaint that it's just a bigger s7 or s7 edge. People that really use the s pen and fully use the note I just can't imagine the S line being a real option for people.

    So it used to be that the Note was released six months after the S series. This year the Note is being released four months after the S Series and is carrying a lot of the same hardware. My guess is that next year's Note will be released within two months of the S Series and will basically start lining up with the S Series soon.

    Honestly, I don't disagree. I wouldn't be surprised if eventually both S phones are released together, one regular and one for S-Pen lovers, setting the stage for a brand new fall flagship, which we already know is in development.

    Not only in Samsung, I see these threads in every forum. There can't be any phone forum where there aren't threads like this. This is not the first and definitely not the last.

    OP, it's perfectly fine to express your opinion. There's nothing wrong with expressing what you think of a particular device or anything. We're all here to share our own thoughts.

    Also, a little reminder to everyone to keep it civil. We can have a nice friendly debate that can help us learn more and understand topics better, but only if everyone cooperates and keeps the discussion civil.

    Actually, I would rather see opposing perspective, since fan centric forums give me a funky nasty taste in my mouth that mouthwash won't quell. The logic here though of going from the Note 4 to the weaker selling Note 5 being fine, but no the Note 5 to Note 7 seems counterintuitive. I could see this thread with merit for the Note 5, since lost the replaceable battery and (shiver) the sd slot in one swoop. That was harsh and sales were hurt.

    Nope, this thread ain't addin' up. The OP bought all the Notes, including the Note 5 that was hurt in sales due mainly to the sd card missing (why Samsung brought them back and invested in 256gb fabrication), but the Note 7 ain't good enough? I can see that with the Note 5, since was harsh to lose replaceable battery and sd slot at same time.

    Has the OP even went to a carrier to test (not Best Buy, since their gimped demos do not impress)? The curve is more bezel slight than anything. It is so unEdge the ticker apps apparently will not work (as intended).

    Nope, I want the OP frisked for contraband (iPhone Plus)
    Went to Sprint store, in the Virgin Islands none the less, twice and AT&T twice. Went to the Sprint store today, matter of fact. That's when I really made up my mind.

    Not impressed with this thread, sorry.
    You guys are so sensitive. Lol. It's not like I am gonna change your mind. I was just stating an opinion. Now people are actually doubting I saw the phone when I played with it extensively on 4 different occasions. I am in the Virgin Islands and was pleasantly surprised when they had them on display in both Sprint and AT&T. I have both carriers..

    I preordered my s6e in April 2015, note 5 in August 2015

    I preordered my s7e in February 2016, note 7 in August 2016.
