Samsung’s Next Big Galaxy Phone Is Coming Out Soon | Time
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch confirmed for 2 August in New York | International Business Times
already waiting for my invite.
I think yes, this would be the costliest so far. I have been eyeing this for weeks already, waiting for the news. Though unlikely, I hope they'll bring down the cost of S7 Edge when this gets released.
I hope the rumors of having smaller battery than S7 Edge is not true. I'm thinking of getting this to replace my LG G3. Also, I really hope there's a flat version as rumors and leaks show an Edge phone only.

12MP DualPixel camera (same as the S7)
IP68 water resistant
I am getting one!
Bigger battery than Note 5 but smaller than S7 Edge. Weird. Are phones with curved display problematic to hold?
My wife and daughter hates curved displays...
You'll get used to it
I don't think so. I tried a display model (the S7 Edge) and the grip was secure. My fingers are long, though.
How about unintended touches on the curved display that will open apps placed on the far left or right side of the home screen or something?
its actually a pain to use haha... just got my s7 edge less than a month so only time will tell if i'll get used to it. The s7 edge does look sexy with the curved edges so i wasnt really going to settle with the regular s7, but it was a tough first week. but i have slowly gotten used to it. A case would actually make all the problem go away but i dont use one on my phones even on iPhones so i wasnt about to cover up my s7 edge too. Once the iPhone 7 comes the s7 edge will be relegated as backup phone so i think i can get used to the s7 edge until september comes. But if this was for long term i'm not so sure. What i did to lessen the unnecessary touches on the edge was to use a different launcher and avoided having the icons too near the edge and also the keyboard is flexible so i narrowed it by just a bit. The edge is supposed to have palm rejection so it knows you are not touching it as input but it does not seem to be very well implemented.
in my case bro that was also my experience using a demo, but once i actually started using it, i really had a hard time adjusting. I actually asked a friend na naka s6 edge how she deals with it and her reply "masasanay ka din" ... but i've adjusted to it though, and a case will definitely make the handling better
According to some initial reviews I read, the Note 7 is not as "edgy" as the S7 edge. So hopefully, less adjustment to possible new users like myself.
As an S7 Edge user and as someone who was once vehemently opposed to curved edges, I must say that you do get used to it.
I originally wanted the regular S7 because it was a very flat phone with flat edges, but it wasn't available at the time. Now a month and half later, I'm glad I went with the Edge. I use it with a simple, generic, clear plastic case with a TPU bumper, but the Edge functions are still accessible. So far I only use the "swipe left for the edge tabs" only for apps like calculator, calendar and other stuff that were otherwise cluttering my home screens. I wanted to keep the home screens down to 2 pages, so I had to relocate some apps to the Edge. In that sense, it's actually quite useful.
Now as to accidental swipe lefts, it happens from time to time, but it's not a big deal.
Back to the Note 7, I've always liked the Note series for having a squarer-corner profile than the round corners of other Samsung phones, just looks a lot classier. Size wise, the S7 Edge is the biggest phone I've ever owned, and they are about right for my fingers. As the Note 7 is even bigger, I don't think I can use it one-handed.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs S7 Edge
I believe that the "Iris Scanner" will bring trouble... >_<
And I would prefer also the old front face design from either note 3 or 4 over this new face design.
Finally! Samsung heard us with regards to battery upgrade.
This is the exact reason why I might be getting the Note 7 instead of S7 edge, I prefer the "squarer" corners.
I might wait until November before I get one - hopefully Nokia will announce their Android phones soon.
For PH, they said pre-orders will come with a new VR. I reckon this is the new VR as the old one isn't compatible with Note 7?
I tried the units last night at the Samsung store and it's still the nice squarish note most of us like. The edge is less curvy than S7, pen worked great as well. Better grip too. And the size is not significantly bigger than S7, although it's heavier as expected. Tempted to replace my S7 with this new note. Love the pen.
