    Since I'm already framed as a bit obsessive regarding Samsung products, I may as well just give y'all more ammo against me.....

    ITS ONLY 41 MORE DAYS BEFORE THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE SAMSUNG NOTE 7!

    @palandri: Raining on my parade!? Oh the shame of it all. LOL

    Every phone has its issues. My experience with Samsung (four phones each for both wife and self over several years) has been, for the most part, positive. As far as issues, that is why I always get my phone from Best Buy with their Protection Plan. Having been a geek most my life, I know that miniaturized anything (especially electronic devices that are mobile, that are jarred, that are subjected to human sweat, that are subjected to heat on dashboards, that are compressed in pockets or under pillows and then, because of lack of ventilation, smoke or worse yet burst into flames,) has potential for failure. Then knowing that it is all made in mass quantities in some off-shore factory by humans that are just as imperfect as the rest of us, failures are a fact of life. While lately I've been reluctant to buy the "first run" of anything, I am so desperately in need of another phone I'm willing to change it with the buffer and reassurance of the protection plan. (See: Acceptable Failure Rate)

    Whatever issues the Note 7 may have, it will be worth it. Having the S7 Edge for three months, I can say I love the phone more now than ever. Even battery life has improved. It's a great phone and equally worthy of the iPhone 6/6+ (6s/6s+). I love having both. I can only imagine how awesome the Note 7 will be if it's anything like the S7/S7 Edge. Enjoy Kevin!

    @M in LA: Indeed! I am very much looking forward to getting the Note 7.

    @palandri: Now you're just playing with my mind. :notworthy: I have turned down every other suitor and been faithful to my determination that my next phone would be the 2016 Samsung Note. With so few days left, I am laser-focused on my true love (even if she is a bit pudgy and got zits). Not even a Note5 will sway me. :)

    That's days to announcement, right? Typically how many days after that until release and availability?

    @viewfly: You are right. Aug.2 is the "unboxing event" (aka announcement date). So far, the availability date is rumored as "the week of August 15th." So, no sooner than 8/15. In the back of my mind, I vaguely remember they usually release on a Friday, so that would be 8/19.

    Although I don't put a lot of weight on what SamMobile publishes, these stats are echoed in other articles:

    Wow, with these daily updates anticipating the Note, KJ, you could be accused of being a Samsung Fanboy

    If so, wear it like a badge of honor, as I do with my Apple Fanboy insignia.

    It all about fun, and you cannot beat having fun!

    @viewfly: I did admit to being a bit obsessive. But given the Word Association game thread that is continuing into insanity (over 2,500 posts), I figure I could have my own little daily post. I hope some are getting a laugh out of the images I choose every day. (In a month, this will all be gone, but the Word Association thread will keep going. My next Note-related thread will be my review.)

    Have you read any firm pricing information on the Note 7? The speculation pricing I have seen is quite high, like +$800 usd

    @palandri: Come to think of it, pricing is one rumor I've heard nothing of. But I would agree with you that it will easily be in the $800 range. Since the smallest internal memory option is 64GB and the RAM 6GB, that 800 might actually be a "modest" estimate. I'm hoping that the 128GB option is not too pricey, because that's the one I want.

    Oh boy (sigh). Android Authority published a rumor that the battery would only be 3,600mAh (not 4,000mAh as consistently reported for the past month). The comments section is STILL exploding with feedback from disappointed prospective buyers. My suspicions are: Comparing the specs from sammobile on 6/27 w/Androidauthority on 6/29 (above link) makes me think there will indeed be both a flat and edge version. The reason is the battery discrepancies. They seem to match the S7 scenarios where the flat version has a smaller battery.
