@palandri: Dang, was that "dancing" or having a spaz attack.
@KevinJames let's make thoughts and prayers that doctors can be wrong sometimes.

1 more itsy bitsy little 24-hour day left!
For those interested in watching the unveiling, here's the link:
8AM Pacific (11AM Eastern)
In just one hour the live-streamed event will start.
My initial take:
1) The "translate" feature is a joke. Context needs to be considered for accurate translation.
2) The battery, which was touted to be "the largest ever in a Note" is still smaller than the S7 Edge.
That's a wrap.
What do you mean it's wrap? The important question is whether you're going to get one Don't leave us hanging!

Oh, sorry. Yes, the legit reasons for getting this are:
1. Samsung pay. (I can't use it on my Note3)
2. I use the Note for writing my blogs in Google Docs, then editing, massaging it on PC when I get home.
3. The increased functionality of the S-Pen is nice.
It won't be released until 8/19 (Friday), and because of my health I doubt I'll be standing in any line. I'll go in on the 19th, but if i have to wait, forget it. I can bearly stand for 30 minutes before becoming faint. A couple months ago I went with a friend as an advisor when she got the S7. It took Best Buy 3 hours to complete the transaction. (And I want either the blue or the gold. I've noticed in the past that Best Buy doesn't carry a full assortment of colors, so I may wait until they get them in. But I will write (starting a new thread) when I do get it.
One of the presenters boasted that the Note7 has the largest battery 3,500 mAh) they've ever put in a Note. That may be true but the S7-Edge is 3,600 mAh and the S7 Active has a 4,000 mAh. Do they really thing Note users will use it less than S7 Active users????
The "translate" feature of the S-Pen is an absolute joke. If the user hovers over a foreign word, it will translate it. Anyone that has even perfunctory knowledge of languages knows that if you don't take the whole sentence in context, you could actually completely misunderstand or not understand at all. For example, in my 2nd tongue, "por nada" literally means "for nothing." Unless that is rendered for the English speaker, they'll be left scratching their heads. Google Translate is much better. Samsung wasted their time on this and in my opinion is just bloatware.
So for now, that's a wrap.
BTW, I think I may have mentioned this in the past. I have developed a friendship with the Samsung Experience rep inside Best Buy. When I talked to him today and told him the specs from the broadcast, he got very angry. He said his boss had lied to him. He was told 6GB RAM. The broadcast said it is only 4GB. There were other details. But he was so upset, he is thinking of leaving Samsung.
I've got to hand it to Samsung. They've certainly gotten it right with the S7/Note 7 series. Though they aren't perfect, they are the best Android devices out there, IMO. Me loves my S7 Edge.
@M in LA: Samsung is ok. I only stick with it because I've gotten so used to it.
Use to? More like married to Samsung
