    According to several tweets by Droid-Life and replies to their tweets, VZW has a warmer temperature screen setting, ad block on the browser is disabled, smart settings suggestions are gone, Device Management settings section gone, and RAM management settings gone.

    Can anyone confirm all of this? I have mine sitting here unopened and if all of this is true, I think I'm finally done with them and will send it back and look at other carrier options. Was excited to switch from my iPhone 6 Plus to this, and as aggravated as I am at Apple about their lack of innovation and stale OS, that is one thing I will give Apple, they tell VZW to shove it and they provide their own updates, and sell the phones with no bloatware and no missing settings.

    Seems like a anti-Verizon rant. I don't notice any issues with my phone so far.

    You can test drive the phone, if you're not satisfied return it!

    Yes and that's one of the reasons I've stuck with the iPhone since it hit VZW. I remember the Note 3 or 4 I tried it out, and something as simple as the continuous app screen swiping was removed only on VZW's version. So maddening.

    Yea.....not going to bother moving everything over from iOS/iCloud over just to return it. Would rather save myself the headache and wasted time.

    Every carrier has messed with the Note 7 in some way in the US. It's a way of life here.

    Nope not an anti-Verizon rant, just relaying what I'm seeing elsewhere and trying to confirm. As for the issues, if you're not looking at the items I mentioned then of course there's no issues.

    Where would all of this be located? I'm on Verizon. Do these features allow you to increase battery life?

    There is an entire settings category called Device Management. From what I can gather they've removed it entirely and all of the subsettings in it.

    I was talking about the Droid Life tweets.
    I can't speak to their motivations but I'd assume they will call out any carrier that messes with the software and removes stuff for no reason.

    Verizon is evil. Aside from loading their devices with junk their retail stores are staffed by nice but totally inept employees.

    Whenever I buy a new Note (annually) or accessories I go to Best Buy. They might not be perfect but it's a massive improvement.

    It's no secret some of these websites are now in T-Mobile's pocket...

    I have Ad Block on the Sammy browser, using Ad Block Plus. And I'm overjoyed they took away the useless RAM "management" snake oil, brought to you by the cheats at Cheetah Mobile. Can't say I'm familiar with smart settings "suggestions." I know I have smart lock for location, devices, etc. And the screen looks great, so not sure about the "warmer" issue.

    Also those warmer photos look to me like somebody has the blue light filter on during the day. I can make my screen look EXACTLY like that with the blue filter activated, but looks nothing like that with it deactivated.

    The Blue Filter must be enabled on the VZW image they posted. My VZW and AT&T are just about the same

    What do you mean warmer? Is it the pinkish color people have been posting about elsewhere?

    Thanks for the info sangs. I prefer the cooler temp, and if it's just a setting I can change and not that they've forced warmer temps I'm ok with that.

    nah my ATT note 7 has NO blue light on and it has a pinkish hue over it. Looks so diff compared to my brother's phone.. his is actually brighter... It has nothing to do with the carrier.. it has to do with the AMOLED screens in general.

    I'm at a corporate store now to buy the wife one. I did look at the demo model, and I admit I'm surprised that the display is actually cooler than I expected. I can't say how it may or may not differ from other versions, but it was almost as cool as my G4. Definitely not what I was expecting from an AMOLED screen.

    Well I'm not saying with 100 percent certainty that's what it is, just so we're clear. I just know that's what happens when I toggle the Blue Light filter on and off. It's a great addition though, the Blue Light filter. Have had it on my iPad and iPhone for a while (they call it Night Shift, or something like that) and it's very helpful when viewing the devices as your day winds down.
