Yeah but I am sure you can change that with Note 7. 2560x1440 vs 1334x750 lol. Tell that to OCN user and we all laugh. My 290X @ 720p smokes Titan XP at 4K.

Is that really necessary? Really?

The majority of android users never held an iphone, much less used one for an extended period of time. Just misplaced opinions. I have an iphone 6 plus and a note 5 side by side which I've daily driver for close to a year. The note is twice the resolution and and it's incredibly difficult for me to tell. The biggest difference is that the Samsung screen is brighter and has warmer, more yellow colors and the iphone has cooler colors that are more blue.

Going from 1080 to 2560 on a phone is way less impressive than on a desktop screen.

Back on topic though, everyone wooing about the note 7 build quality is making it difficult to resist. May have to pick it up to replace the note 5.

Using this phone right now. To me, it doesn't feel like much of an upgrade from the note 4. The iris scanner is a great gimmick though. To my surprise, it comes with a preinstalled screen protector. Was it worth the upgrade? Yeah. That note 4 was ready to retire lol. That, and the size of the note 7 feels better than the 4.

Had a 6S and S6 Edge. Screen quality side by side is super noticeable. I though 6S screen looked fine and I was OK with it but OK for how expensive the iPhone is , not acceptable.

Until Samsung brings back the removable battery I won't be buying the newer Note series. Not only did they make the Note's after the 4th one overpriced and Applelike but they also overcharged for what was essentially a very restricted mobile phone. So that means I will be picking up a used Note 3 or Note 4 and Samsung loses out on a potential sale.

Got it on friday and have used it alot over the weekend. Coming from the note edge this is a decent upgrade. The phone feels really good on your hands and it has a really nice solid build its a good looking phone at and the battery life so far is better than the note edge. The battery saver mode lets you change the screen resolution and I have been using 1080p today and at 1080p is looks really good to the point that i will probably just leave at 1080.  The phone is a finger prints magnet but i can deal with it. I like it alot.

That's OK, they'll pick that sale back up from me because I am absolutely getting the Note 7 as soon as I can (went down both Best Buy and the Verizon stores today but all sold out). It is just an incredible phone and fixes the only two issues my Note 5 has: Battery life and expandable storage. Throw in the IP68 rating as well as the gorgeous build quality and its really a no-brainer that the Note 7 will be the ultimate phone of 2016...

It does not really "fix" battery life.

500 more mAh than my Note 5 which already makes it through a full day's use (barely) in my case. That's about all I ask from a phone battery personally so anymore than that is just the cherry on top.

I don't know why consumers such as yourself are so eager to rush out and buy the latest phone or product soon after launch. One would think that history and previous experience would teach otherwise about paying the early-adopter premium and tax. I don't see what's so impressive about the Note 7 in comparison to the true Note models (Note 3/4). Including an screen with an edge doesn't magically make it a better phone and just because they added in the IP68 rating is irrelevant. I could even go farther and say that for the price they are asking of the Note 7 I could get a Zenfone 3 and have money left over. Sorry but Samsung lost their potential purchases with me and others when they stopped including removable batteries. It's called planned obsolescence (hence why you are upgrading from the Note 5 to Note 7).
