    I wanted to love this phone so much, but it's just not a good phone. I previously owned the note 2 and then the note 4, both were great phones and when I got the note 4 it felt like a great upgraded model from the note 2. This note 7 feels like a downgrade from my 2 year old note 4! This note 7 is slow, crashes all the time, and is a pain to use. Web pages load very slow and scrolling up and down in a webpage looks terrible, the text is jittery and is not smooth at all. When i take out the spen and do smart select and select an image it constantly crashes. I feel I've been ripped off and I think I need to look into returning it to att. Hopefully I don't get charged a bunch of restocking fees. I don't know, maybe I received a bad one. Maybe att bloat ware ruined this phone?

    I had my note7 for about a week I ended up returning it and got a note 5 this phone runs better in my opinion and meets my needs I'm sure everybody on here has their own opinions about the different phones.

    I would try a factory reset first my Note is very stable nothing like you discribe at all. An app is probably your issue causing the problem not the device. Coming from the Note 3 the 7 is light years ahead.

    That's not the experience I have had with the note 7, it's been a positive experience for me. I hate saying this but I would suggest a factory reset, I know those are fighting words.

    Other possibility is there is a app that is acting up. The only issue I have with the note 7 is with my gear s2 watch. At first I couldn't get notifications sent to the watch, now I have that working and now the battery on the watch goes down twice as fast as with my note 5.

    Hopefully you can find why your phone is acting so poorly. I came from a Note 4 and feel it is great update.

    Why first post ever about Note 7, and no previous posts about other devices? It would seem obvious something is wrong, since the issues described are even more severe than previous posts from people not happy.

    Seems a rogue third party app, or something else corrupting.

    I've had my phone for a week and don't think I've experienced a single crash. Your experience sounds unusual and I'd suggest a reset, some troubleshooting, or an exchange.

    I just don't get some of these experiences. It has to be apps causing the slowness or jitter. I have been using my Verizon Note 7 heavily since the 18th. The initial rush of the couple hundred apps, burned through the battery quickly, but since then I have had not a single issue or hiccup. Battery is lasting all day (15 hrs) with 4+ hours of screen time before charging. Not one slow down or hiccup. Such a breath of fresh air coming from my Note 3 that I would always have to wait a second when I started typing. I can't imagine a faster, smoother phone than my Note 7.

    Yeah my Smart Select also crashes...the same was doing for my Note 5, but my Note 5 did it more. I think its more of a software issue than a hardware issue.
    However, I'm still keeping this phone because I think its better than my Note 5 the battery life is much better than the Note 5 I had

    These posts are normal for every new Samsung release.

    I love my note 7.. i have not experienced any lag or over heating. Only thing that bothers me (i feel like im beating a dead horse) is the auto correct on mine does not work so i had to download swiftkey which fixed the issue, just hope samsung send an update eventually as i prefer the samsung keyboard. And i can not find a screen protector that will stay down... i would go naked, but im afraid lol.

    I came from a note 4 which I was extremely happy with as well. I love the note 7 so far and have had zero issues with. It is noticeably faster then the note 4 and the overall feel is excellent. It's hard to imagine these people are talking about the same phone, maybe there are some note 7 lemons out there but mine is perfect.

    I usually wait for the first batch of phones to go out get user feedback and release the new batch with improvements from Samsung. This happened with note edge and note 5. Also am hoping Samsung to release unlocked version in US.

    It hasn't happened once on my Note 5.
    I'm still wondering if people are disabling too much.

    My wife and I picked up our Note 7's on launch day. We previously had the S6 Edge Plus. Both of our phones have had no issues and very responsive. We are using Nova Launcher on both of our phones.

    There are a lot of processes that are not fully understood.
    I know disabling paper artist caused issues for some other function, and disabling my files, caused issues with something else.

    came from a iPhone 6 Plus and I am thrilled with my Note once I figure out the S-Pen I will be over the moon, today I used it to buy lunch while being told no chip it won't work it went thru and the girl was like oh and here is your receipt have not had lag, and even some of the Apple users in my office are pleased with the look of the Note. There were times when using Tune In Radio on my iPhone it would stutter and it may do it on my Note. I only have one carry over app that won't work but it seems to be a issue also for Apple users

    Stephen Ambruzs: Galaxy Note 7 - Honest review on YouTube.

    Open the tab. Turn the sound off. Don't listen to what he's saying because he's talking crap. But just look at the parts when he's interacting with the phone. Navigating through the UI. I can SEE the lag. I can SEE that the phone isn't catching up to the commands. In addition, watch the camera part when he takes the picture and clicks on the picture to view it. These are just simple day to day tasks. And you can SEE the lag. Its not a myth. These aren't just words. Its true.

    Watch Floss Carters review as well. He mentions the lag too. He said those coming from an iPhone should always go for a non Samsung device first because the lag makes them dislike android which isn't exactly Google's fault. Its Samsungs.

    Anyways. Just go watch the video. And if you don't see lag then I guess you're tuned to it. But thats what we call lag. And thats what we don't get on other phones.

    If you actually read the forums, we think we have found the source of some users lag.

    If you're even interested in that...

    Am I the only one that is experiencing zero lag whatsoever? I'm at the point where I'm trying to make it lag. Opening a bunch of apps in a row. I used smartswitch but only for several apps. My note7 is flawless when it comes to speed. Now I do notice the Wi-Fi signal is a bit weaker than on my note 3 but other than that, I really have no complaints.
