    So, since I have nearly 3 weeks before I can buy the Note 7, I'm posting the improvements that I, as a Note 3 user, will experience in upgrading to Note 7:

    • 1 more gig of RAM (Really Samsung? In 3 yrs that all you can do?!)
    • On board memory doubled from 32 to 64
    • Screen improved from 1080 x 1920 to 1440 x 2560
    • Battery up from 3200mAh to 3500mAh (Big whoopie! the screen alone will eat that up. Yet Samsung claims to have doubled the life of the battery. Yeah, right.)
    • S-Pen sensitivity has improved
    • S-Pen ability to write on supposedly "off" screen
    • Water resistant
    • Fingerprint scanner
    • Iris scanner
    • Camera went from F2.2 to F1.7 (More light for night exposures, but reviewers of the S-series, specifically the S7, say it is actually worse in normal daylight now.)
    Something odd:
    The Note3 had a 2.3GHz processor. The Note7 is only 2.2GHz.

    Here are two charts that you can see full side-by-side specs:

    So should I be upset with a measly 4GB RAM? This article explains that while the MacBook air has 4GB RAM, most laptops today are at 8GB. Most phones today do not have 4GB RAM, but the Note-series is designed for "creators" (supposedly). I use my phone more than I do my laptop. I bank with it; I write blog articles with it; it is supposed to be gamer-quality; there's more. Yet in three years, Samsung has only raised the Note by 1GB RAM. Sad.

    Express your dissatisfaction with your wallet. Buy something else?

    @rjniles: Unfortunately, its an addiction. :ROFLMAO::notworthy::sneaky:

    Although, in my defense, I will say that I did just that (express it with my wallet) but not buying the Note4 or Note5. But the services provided by the stylus and supporting software are what bring me back. Its not that they made a bad phone, its just not as great a phone as I had hoped.
