    Coming from the note five.

    Today. I had my phone facing down (screen down) when i saw it flash blue out of the corner of my eye. I thought i had left a game on or something. Then i got a message and i saw the whole phone flash blue. Almost like a halo around the phone. I just thought that was too cool.

    2nd thing I discovered was the new front facing flash. On the note 5 when you enabled flash on the front facing camera the camera screen would become smaller surrounded by a white background. But on the note 7, when you enabled it, there is no change until you take the picture and the entire screen turns white then goes back to the camera.they come out pretty d* good. Here are the examples.

    It's a nice feature to have. My 6s plus had it as well so I was happy this was included in the note 7

    Yeah I like the front flash on the 7. My front facing pics hardly ever came out as good on my 5 in low light.

    You have to turn the flash on for the ffc. You turn it on the same way you would for the rear camera.

    Delirious D, there are 5 different colors that the phone can display while face down that correspond to the 5 contacts you can set up on the People Edge. Very cool stuff.

    Missed that and tried it. Got a very funny picture when it did it because it surprised me even though I knew it was coming.

    Another cool one if you're using the s pen to write messages. After it converts them to text, you can simply draw a line through them with the pen and it erases whatever you put the line through. Found that today by accident lol

    Does the People Edge have to be used to get this feature? I don't really want the People Edge so would love to set this up without it if possible.

    Eta: quoted the wrong post. I discovered the light when the phone is face down. How do I assign the different colors? TIA!

    You'd have to set up the contacts in the People Edge but you don't have to use it for it to show the colors. As long as you leave it active, it'll do it without any interaction from you.

    It happened when i received a whatsapp message. and person wasn't on my edge panel.
    tested it to make sure. using textra scheduled a msg to be sent to myself. turned phone around. and it glowed blue when the message came through.

    Interesting. I'm using Verizon Messaging so not sure how that would fit into all this....
