    So how many things did SamMobile get wrong about the Note 7. As it turns out, they got 7 things wrong:

    In March, they predicted the device would

    1. "arrive" in July
    2. Have Android Nougat

    In April, May and June, they predicted

    3. the Qualcomm 823

    In June they

    4. predicted only 3 case colors (black, blue, silver)

    Also in June, they predicted:

    5. 5.8" screen
    6. 6GB RAM
    7. 4000mAh battery

    And yet for some reason, other industry pundits continue to site this source as dependable. Baffling.

    It's amazing how most of these mobile news sites get much of the information wrong. It's always speculation until the manufacturer announces it. I'm tired of all the iPhone 7 speculation. I wish they'd stop, but I know they won't.

    Still, the Note 7 is a beaut!

    @M in LA: What annoys me most about SamMobile is their claim to "exclusives" straight from Samsung. Their exclusives are MOST wrong of all.

    So true. Samsung and Apple are not going to early reveal anything to anyone. It's just a guessing game until the official word is given.
