    We all know what happened with the Note 7, I'm not going to get into that. All I want to know are what are the BEST features of the Note 7 that you MUST see carry over to the Note 8? (or whatever it ends up being called). What features could you not live without in the next iteration?

    64 GB or higher base internal storage

    USB Type C without QuickCharge and with PowerDelivery (they got halfway there on this point and then screwed it up a little)
    One of the top cameras, great screen, great battery life and blazing fast UI are obvious - if any of those are missing, that's just fail.

    And one thing they need to remove: get rid of CleanMaster. If you put CleanMaster, which is MALWARE on devices, we're just done.

    Coming from the Note4 6.0.1 to the Note7 I was relieved to find the return off the "Open with.." and "Just once/Always" options. I know it's a small software feature but it went missing with last Note4 MM update. A huge oversight.

    Hardware wise I would say the sPen. It was a huge update from the Note5 and I really liked it. In general I would actually like to see some other improvements from the Note7 hardware to the new Note8. For example a higher ppi screen would be really nice for those of us who own the Gear VR. A 4K screen would also be fitting. I enjoyed the quality of the Note7 camera but missed the native 16:9 camera on the Note4. We don't view photos on a 4:3 screen anymore. The standard is 16:9 or 16:10 so a return to a native 16:9 camera would be nice.

    The iris scanner.
    It might come as a gimmick to some people but it really blew my mind

    Do you think any of the Note 7 features will make it to the Note 5 when it is updated to Nougat? That would be shweeet.

    It breaks because of the case. I bought a paper thin case and my N7 cracked after a drop. I got a slightly thicker TPU case and despite many drops my replacement N7 hasn't cracked.

    Honestly a favorite feature of mine is the magical screen that seems fingerprint and oil proof. Other cells I've used, you had to wipe the screen down every 5 minutes. With heavy use, I never even need to wipe the screen off.

    I hope the screens on all their new phones continue to have these same properties.

    I love my Note 7. Not a single scratch on the screen. Never gets warm and nowhere near hot. Run smoothly to this day and has never caught on fire. I hate to leave it behind.

    Well when it doesn't work in the near future because of the new mandatory update, I hope you still love a paperweight lol

    Yip, would agree with this. The Iris scanner is pretty cool.

    I also liked the S-Pen. But I feel they mustn't just give us the Note 7's pen again. It must be improved a little

    I had no case and it cracked in the corner way to easily (with the first week). I've never cracked a smartphone screen before. That's the only issue I had with this phone. You gotta get a case for it, or a sleeve which is what I did.

    Having never owned one I can't say for sure. I will say this.... While waiting for the V20 to come out I looked at one because it caught my eye. I tried a note 7 every time I could get a moment in Best Buy or Verizon but it just never did anything for me. I was tempted to hop on the band wagon but just couldn't do it. The S pen might be one reason I could think of that might make it tempting but I couldn't see myself usung it. The reason I held out for the V20 was the Quad DAC so if the note 7 had one similar I might have jumped on it. The other thing that held me back was the sealed battery.

    USB-C sucks because it's not compatible with the zillions of micro USB charges already out there for all the other devices. The whole benefit of micro USB was that it's compatible with everything. The S7 edge had fast charging with micro USB. Note 4 had it as a matter of fact. Sometimes I go places like the gym and ask to borrow someone's charger only realizing that the micro USB isn't compatible with the Note 7 w/o an adapter.
