Beware!

I work for a certain cell company and we have been getting reports of exploding phones and phones that melt unexpectedly only with the Note 7. Samsung is going so far as to issue a recall to get the issue taken care of

Contacts not customizable

I have found that I cannot set my contacts by last name. In fact I have found NO way of making any changes to the way they are set up. Any suggestions folks??
Okay so call me stupid!! Found out that you have to actually go under the contacts logo to change the settings. All other phones that I have had in the past it was accessible under the phone settings.

A little disappointed

I compared the specs to my Note 5 and am not impressed. Aside from adding memory card support, water resistant design and a slightly larger battery, I'm losing MP on camera, video is decreasing to 1080p and ram is the same.

I'm a power user and could have used more RAM as my N5 struggles with my day to day use. Thankfully I'm still on unlimited data and use 50gb a month.

The camera is the same as the S7, which is an extremely well-regarded camera. It's higher quality than previous Samsung cameras. Megapixel count isn't everything.

The video capture actually maxes out at Quad-HD (as noted on the full spec page), th...

The reason the camera goes down is because of the lowlight feature in all s7. So they have to go down in the pixels to bring that amazing lowlight feature in to effect. My favorite part is the spen I love that you can pin items and make your own gifs....

The camera is better as it's the same one in the S7. I have both the Note 5 and S7 and the S7 Camera is much, much better. The Note 7 is NOT losing 4k video ability. It clearly says it on Samsung's website that the camera does UHD...just like the S7. ...

I have a Note 5, and impressed with the Note 7, I pre-ordered from Best Buy, when I went to get it, they didn't have it. Nor did Best Buy have any 256gig sd cards of which I wanted, and they told me wouldn't get it till Oct. Reason I'm saying this is...

Color Choices

I am curious what color will be the most popular? I know the gold is not available in the US. I personally like the blue one. How does everyone feel about the color choices available?

Qualcomm quick charge?

Is that 2.0 or 3.0 ?
That's one of those things Samsung prefers to be cagey about. It uses Qualcomm technology, but also some "Samsung proprietary" technology.

It has a Snapdragon 820 processor, so it could be QC 3.0.
Everything I have heard points to QuickCharge 2.0, as was the situation with the S7/S7 Edge. the Snapdragon 820 is capable of QC 3.0, however Samsung specifically does not have it enabled because the Exynos 8890 in the international version only suppo...
