    My only dislike, which is not major, is that the S-Pen is too thin and small... The Note 5 S-Pen felt more comfortable to hold and the button more closer to my thumb to press
    I feel like it's too light. It needs a little heft to it because I feel like I'm gonna bend or snap it in half. Not really a true complaint. Just an observation.

    I don't have a Note 7 but I do still have a Note Edge. When using the pen to draw or do a screen cap, I always had to be careful not to get to close to the edge panel or the pen would fall off the screen. Anyone noticing the same problem with the dual edges on the Note 7?
    You recommend the Note Edge? I ordered it as White Noise back up for work and sleep since I read it had one of the loudest speakers, at 87db. Is that true? I should get it tomorrow.

    I hate that action memo was removed, the "Link to action" is gone. Hopefully it comes back.

    I really never noticed if the speaker was louder than newer phones. I think the Note Edge is still an excellent phone for use today. I haven't been using it for my daily now for about a month. I'm using a Note 5 and an S7 edge and some iPhones (I have five lines on T-Mobile).

    So I cleared the system cache last night on my Note 7, and all the animation stuttering is gone!!!! Apps also seem to be opening a little faster, and everything is a little smoother overall. Anybody having issues should try it. It won't hurt anything.

    Go to the Play store and review Samsung Notes, let the know how much of a piece of trash it is, and then maybe we will get features back.

    Snouts me too. I may have to switch back to Google Keyboard if it doesn't fix itself.

    Edit: I'm leaving snouts when I actually typed annoys to prove my point!

    I'm hoping it stays that way. I don't mind doing it once a month or so, but if I have to do it weekly I'll be a little perturbed.

    Battery life...I'm a heavy active user and my phone is down to 31% after 4 hours. Never used anything but Samsung's Note 2, 4 and now 7. Battery life has been a problem on all three phones. I'm so used to plugging my phone in all the time it's become normal. But I'm kinda getting tired of it. Oh well. Still love the phone. Amazing screen and everything else.

    In the last 48 hours of ownership I've experienced quite a bit of lag...the phone heats up while charging and during use. The things that will always keep Samsung behind Apple in the eyes of the mainstream smartphone users is lag, and lack of system to battery optimization. iOS is nicely integrated with its hardware which helps with the smoothness of the user interface, and battery drain. Samsung and Android fall behind in these areas, and because of these issues, will be seen as inferior. However, it's something I've become accustomed to and will never go back to iOS, but is always an issue.
    I'd say my biggest disappointment is the lag and stuttering. It's just a shame and pretty bothersome to me. The design and screen are amazing, but the UX doesn't match the hardware to me.

    Also sort of meh on the edge panels so I've disabled them.
    You both need to perform a hard reset of your devices.

    Even out of the box, sometimes software can have little nuances that need to be cleared. Perform a hard reset and your issue should be fixed.

    I had to do that with mine after 2 days of ownership. After that, no lag and stuttering.

    Same here, but it does autocorrect, but not words that I think are obvious. Like the "tge" situation you mentioned. My auto correct doesn't fix that either. LOL. But some words it does fix.

    The Samsung keyboard learns from you, so just tap on the "tge" and the option in the middle will be "the" and hopefully the keyboard will learn.

    - I don't like how there are so many duplicate Google and Samsung applications. The phone looks bloated with two sets of apps: 'Calendar' 'Calendar', 'Clock', 'Clock', 'Gallery', 'Photos', 'Messenger', 'Messages' etc.
    Mine only has the Samsung apps and not the duplicate Google apps... Maybe those are from when(if) you transferred your data

    Do a search over at xda. They have an apk for an older version of S note. I downloaded it and now have the action memo back. Of course doesn't work for screen off memo but is great otherwise. Click side button on pen, double tap screen and the action memo pops up if you don't want to put a short cut on your home screen.

    Thanks, I found a video on YouTube this morning with a link to the app you speak of. I just don't understand why they would remove it. This is what i believed set the Galaxy note series aside from other note taking apps.

    The crappy auto correct and my lock screen settings don't stick. I can unlock my screen by swiping when I have it set to fingerprints and iris.
