[NYT] Goodbye Note 7: Samsung terminated the production of Note 7 - Page 3

post #21 of 207
am I the only one that has a dedicated server to auto sync my phone to a server locally at home? it dosent matter if im out and about, my pictures get immediately backed up as i take them. I know this relies on data, but i dont even come close to using 30gb a month anymore. I cant justify paying someone else to host my data, when I can just do it myself.

Or setting it up to Sync over your WiFi when you get back, which is my preferred method.

And $60 a year is a lot more expensive than $0 a year. Of course you have to account for the cost of the SD card(s) itself though.

You're right a person's residence is a but unfair to bring into this debate. But so is saying it's "missing features" when you're literally preventing it from being used for its purpose. When you are refusing to purchase credit or data your phone it is then devoid of more than 5 features, compared to the one missing feature you lambast. On top of this the features you are denying your phone are FAR more significant as they apply to its ORIGINAL intended use, not just niche interests.

Also,if you're claiming $60 a year for a phone is too much then either you haven't considered the cost to value proposition to start with, or your social life entirely involves dota and imagefap.

Can some one explain why will someone buy a Note 7 instead of S7 Edge? They are almost the exact phone minus the Iris and Stylus.

I think the most useful feature is the stylus, i had a Note 3 (now i have an S7 Edge) and i really missed the stylus, i was seriously considering changing it for a Note 7 but this whole fiasco happened, i think i'll refrain from that.

The stylus is really useful

Business facing vs Consumer facing from what I can tell

Same with SD cards.

You are surely mistaken. I don't whine that phones don't have removable batteries - infact, I am using an iPhone 7 at the moment, no SD card, no removable battery, not even a headphone socket - didn't complain once, don't need any of those things.

Doesn't mean I need to call people who do want those things, old, backwards, stuck in the past etc - that was the whole point of my post - not the re-introduction of these features.

SD cards and cloud storage could be used together. I'm not saying you should leave one unused if you have the other, they simply cover some of each others weaknesses and are probably even best used together.

The last comment was simply referring to people with specific needs that could simply use cards and might get little to nothing out of cloud storage, not that the average person has such needs.

I find it funny to see so many people trying to blame the battery-issues on the fact that the phone had a non-removable battery. Guess what, it has no effect what-so-ever. If that really was the case, would there not be tens of thousands of phones exploding in peoples pockets? rolleyes.gif

Exceptionally well. The Galaxy S6 and S7-models broke every record there was. It's also much, much easier to make the phone water-resistant, and it looks much better in the process aswell (I have personally not seen a good-looking IP67/8 certified phone with removable batteries). Not to mention you don't get the annoying messages about checking the back-cover to make sure it's watertight.

Samsung also follows the target market. As someone who works in one of the three largest consumer-electronics retailers in Norway, the people who buy high-end/flagship phones don't really care about removable batteries. Number one priority is camera, followed by battery-life, design and performance. SdCards was another feature the market wanted, so they brought it back. They do listen to the customers, but when it comes to decisions, they follow the majority, not the minority of the market thumb.gif


Shame to see the phone going EOL so quickly. Didn't even go on sale in the nordics before the first recall happend, which put it on hold indefinitely. I really wanted to upgrade from my aging Note 3 sad-smiley-002.gif
