does any stores have the Note 7 on display yet?

 

 

I don't believe they are allowed until the Wednesday/Thursday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meh that seems backwards considering most other countries have it on display already, thought they would want as much exposure as possible. Oh well I'll need to try it in stores before I commit.

Anyone else counting down the days haha.

What cases are you buying? I looked at the Samsung ones and they are actually prettt s**t for the price they charge (led, clear cover and leather). I like mine to have full sides protection but not make the phone bulky.

I've ordered a couple on ebay but wanted to see what everyone else is getting

What did you order? I've got a cover I put mine in but apart from that only use a screen protector.

Totally counting down the days. Some people with T-Mobile in the US already have tracking numbers!

Haha yea i is counting.
Iv never used cases, or covers or anything. I like to take full advantage of the phone.
The glass however is a little more fragile so i have ordered a dbrand back (matte) and might be looking at the pigen HD screen protector. Its aparently the clearest and sleekest type with it barely noticeable.

All my phones since i started out with the htc sensation have been roughed up and scrated over a year or two, but i end up buying a new one eventually so i dont care.
The gorilla tech is getting better too.

someone is selling genuine Samsung Note 7 screen protectors on tardme for $20. not glass though, just plastic.

 

i have my eye on the Spigen thin fit case for $20 also. i dont use it all the time, just in certain circumstances.

 

i dont drop epic money on a nice feeling phone to ruin it with a case.

This is one of them for protection
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/252487869845

And I got one of those mirror ones (just for looks).

Im considering a skin for the back also, do they come off without leaving any residue?

I'm the worst at putting on screen protectors. My note 5 I currently have has little tiny bubbles from when I first put it on ??

I may just get the Leather case considering thats what I use on my iPhone 6s Plus, the footprint should still be smaller.

i found the key thing was using a hinge system to install it straight and using bits of sellotape to remove dust. this video really helped me.

 

i was terrible also at installing them before this; https://youtu.be/J8SYR9133TA?t=29s

 

the other option it to pay a little more from Spark/VF and getting them to install them. they are well versed at it.

The naked wrap looked interesting from that site. Quality wise and precision though i dont think there's much better than dbrand.

Sorry, I'm meaning the range to pick from. I'm ordering the naked wrap, glow in the dark wrap and a galactic storm trooper? wrap for my note 5 that the hubby will get.
