Returned mine for an S7E. Boy what a dumb decision, such a step down it feels. Will be buying a Note 7 as soon as they're available for purchase again.

So it seems that buying them again might be a few weeks away.

 

I am hoping that samsung throws some goodies in to buy one after all the issue they had with them.

Hearing about everyone getting theirs is making me super jealous haha...

I didn't know they were doing weekend delivery, now I'm wondering if they're delivering on Sunday... Please let it be so.

Has anyone who has had a before and an after phone compared battery life yet? I have a feeling that they may have had to give something up in that area :(

I've not noticed any difference whatsoever. Battery life continues to be excellent compared to my Note 4. However, saying that, I'm not downloading heaps of apps that I never use and will try to keep the phone clean with only my essentials for work, a little media entertainment and the odd game.

The rating of the battery capacity has to be the same or some people will not be happy

No difference in the battery performance. Now I can pat myself on the back for having the patience to wait for the replacement. Compared it with S7 edge yesterday at the Samsung kiosk and feeling glad that I waited. Note 7 is definitely the more premium product

I'm waiting for the flood of refurbished Note7s :-)

 

(No, I have no idea if that'll happen or if they'll stick them all in a landfill - seems likely though with so many near new devices that just need a battery replacement that they'd do something)

 

Cheers -N
