I bought and returned my new Note 7 for Verizon when it first came out after learning of the "Battery-gate" issues. Two days ago I bought a replacement Note 7 that is "Safe" to use. However I am noticing poor battery performance. I am getting about half the battery life that I get using my iPhone 6S Plus. I have to charge my new Note 7 twice a day so far. Is anyone else experiencing similar issues?
I cannot believe that Sprint and Verizon have decided to start selling replacement devices to NEW CUSTOMERS and NEW UPGRADES before replacing those who originally had a Note 7 and a potentially dangerous device. Why isn't this being reported and more light being shed on this topic?

With a deadline in place to exchange your recalled device and then selling the REPLACEMENTS to new users, you are preventing those customers from exchanging for a device they had originally purchased that was recalled.
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

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.
Now add the aforementioned new features and increase the RAM and I might consider.
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.... (continues)
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. ... (continues)
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... (continues)
