    Thought I'd start a thread where we can post what we'd like to see for improvements on the Note 7 (software-wise at least), so maybe Samsung will give us some updates along the way.

    Here are some of mine, in no particular order...

    - I'd like more flexibility for the Always On Display. For example, a setting where the clock color will change randomly throughout the day. The ability to change more of the colors, especially when selecting Calendar. Maybe even have that funky little background pattern on the Calendar layout too. Custom font styles would be nice for those who are into that sort of thing (I'm not, but others would be I'm sure).

    - I don't care for how the Edge stuff takes over the whole screen, even though you can kinda see what's under it. I'd rather it just slide partway over, and had a handle to thumb-swipe it back rather than having to hit the back button.

    - Settings to change between a light and dark mode for the Phone and Settings menus.

    - Make the Gallery more like the Android 5 gallery, or at least make that an option. I don't care for the various Play-store alternatives.

    - More color choices for folder backgrounds

    I'll think of more later I'm sure, but that's it for now.

    • Extra DPI scaling options so some of us can make stuff super-tiny in order to fit more stuff on-screen but retain a legible image.
    • Good Lock support for the Note7 with a smaller display density
    • Ability for the S Pen translate software to translate an entire sentence.
    • Bring back Action Memos to Samsung Notes.

    A properly working autocorrect Samsung keyboard!!

    The ability to turn OFF Samsung's voice to text (let me choose what the microphone activates...currently I'm stuck with Samsung when trying to dictate texts even though I have Google installed and ready to go. If I turn off Samsung Voice the microphone just does nothing...it still won't default to Google).

    Action notes incorporated into Samsung Notes (i.e. ONE app that does it all)

    The ability to have Events (currently does this) as WELL as Reminders show up in the AOD calendar layout.

    The ability to make the AOD clock font as large or small as I want it (or at least some sizing flexibility, even if only 3 choices...one larger and one smaller, for example).

    Haha, I'm already used to tiny DPI scaling.

    Would like to see more options in that regard for the Note7 in the future.

    You should be able to change DPI through adb to anything you like.

    You can install the old app to get action memo.

    The ability to turn OFF Samsung's voice to text
    OMG you are right the voice to text is horrible, this is how you can turn it off.

    Settings->General Management->Language and input->Text-to-Speech then select your google text to speech option.

    I would like an option that once your phone hits a predetermined % of power it automatically goes into the power saving mode of your preset choosing.

    Yeah I have that set up correctly but when using the Samsung keyboard I still only get Samsung's voice to text. And if I turn that off and try to turn just the google voice to text on, the mic just does nothing. I ended up going over to Swiftkey and now I get Google speech to text.
