I like it. It's plastic not glass and covers the edges. Doesn't cover right into the corners though, but im really happy with it =)

just installed the $19.99 (2 pack) Samsung official screen protector. went on pretty well. curls over the edges and protects them but doesnt do the extreme corners of the phone.

The IRIS scanner is pretty impressive,very quick and accurate to unlock the phone :)

 

The IRIS scanner works with reading glasses and sunglasses on :)

 

The VR gear is pretty cool , downloaded and played the free version of Suicide Squad :)

 

 

 

Picked up this case on PB Tech Sale last week for $40 inc gst

Also got the Samsung official screen protector, although it seems like a finger print magnet. I don't really mind as this is only temporary until a proper tempered glass protector is discovered.

Hmmm absolutely love my Note 4, and, like the release of the Note 5 was not that particularly interested. This is especially true as the Note 4 has continued to work so well for the past 2 years and I could see no compelling reason to change.

 

But I walked into Spark, took one look at the gorgeous screen and light weight form factor and a couple of trade ins later ....  managed to get rid of an old Note 2 and Note 3 AND acquire a really beautiful phone for about a grand.

 

PS

 

Office junior is looking forward to her Note 4, sales reps still expect the latest and greatest on the day it is released and my 10 year old son has no idea what to do with his 3 iPhone 4's!

Exec Summary: Samsung Note 7 case for sale.

 

Picked up my N7 from Vodafone Albany when they opened on Friday morning. Also bought a genuine N7 'S View Standing Cover' from the Samsung kiosk in the same Albany mall.

 

I found the cover hard to get used to because I have always used a back-only/non-flap shell case on my phones e.g. CaseMate 'Barely There' type cases.

 

So when I was in the Albany mall on Monday I went to the 'mobile phone case & cover kiosk' guy and bought a cheap black rubbery-gel, back-and-sides case that I'm really happy with.

 

The Samsung S View cover is a great cover - just not for me. If anyone is interested in buying this charcoal/black cover for $40 incl. postage (new price $69) please PM me. As-new condition in original packaging, used for a couple of days, never been outside the house.

Hey Guys

 

I picked up a 2 degrees variant off the Samsung website and have been loving it so far! 

 

One question though, Under the Iris settings - I can't seem to find the 'Mask on Preview Screen' screen option. Has this been omitted from the SM-N930F variant? I've included screenshots i've found on another forum for reference:

 

 

 

SM-N930P                    SM-N930P

 

The first screenshot is off an SM-N930F (the same as my device). The second screenshot is off an SM-N930P

This seems to be a difference between the features sets being offered in different markets. The American ones have the iris mask, but Aus ones don't. Apparently, neither do we. Not something I'd probably use, but a bit surprising.

Well iv confirmed the keyboard issue is not isolated and is likely software. Went to two stores and tried the phones, both gave the same repeated key entry and scrolling problem. The home key however was tactile and responsive, mine wasnt so back it went today for a replacement.
People on xda forums were also mentioning keyboard problems of similar or exact issue, switching keyboard apps resolved for some.
Id say the repeated key entry issue is possible on every phone but not everyone is noticing it or they are not pressuring the keyboard and screen with the same conditions i do. I am very heavy end user and type as fast as 50 or more words per minute.
