Cellular Signal (voice calls): Where I used to get 3 bars in some areas, now I only get 1 or 2. In just one instance I had none, so I restarted the phone and then had 2. Wifi connection: My Note3 used to take a long time to connect to any wifi connection and would drop frequently. In contrast, the Note7 connects instantly! Used as hotspot: I think this is probably an AT&T issue. Lately I’ve noticed that if my device is not near a window, my signal is so poor, even if it shows the hotspot is active, I cannot connect to it. Both the Note3 and Note7 have the same issue. Screen Refresh: After closing some apps, I notice the screen stays blank for a moment – much longer than seems acceptable for new device. Battery Life: It burns through power especially when I have my ZenWatch2 attached via Bluetooth. However, recharging is very fast. Wireless charging not as fast as connected to power cord. Frustrations: Samsung indicates the S-Pen tip is finer than its predecessors. While that is true, the writing experience in the OEM notetaking app is such a broad stroke, it is frustrating to capture much detail. Would I recommend this device: No. Even an S-series Samsung with a more expensive stylus would be a good solution, but any phone with high rez display and using the MyScript apps would be very capable.
