hmmm, now I'm kinda worried. How bad is it?

Well I was looking forward to it when I heard about better battery, - this would look very handy on my Alpha., stupid Samsung taking its time..


EDIT:
Ok WIFI should be ok, my router has 5G band enabled by default.

old s5 did the same, if i used my 5g band on my router there was no issue.
And I had this glitch in Lollipop 5.02 too with my old docis2.0 wifi router, it didn't support 5G.. I wondered why it started stuttering or not respond when I streamed music to bluetooth speaker and surfed the web, no wonder 2.4G signals were fighting each other



What about GFX and camera perf? Im especially interested in camera bugs. Use the phone a lot for pics.

Camera bugs were fixed two months ago, i didn't notice any bugs.
Camera is the best u can find, it's awesome no matter what condition u shooting in.

GFX is problematic, probably the worst of any flagship, some games work ok some not, sammy throttle the device on purpose to save power, root can help with that.

Tekken NFS unlimited angry birds 2 have lots amount of lag, that never happend with 5.1.1 on Note 5, but even since 6.0.1 it started.

please NO MORE POKEMON GO!!! lol

VR is amazing with it, watching youtube while laying down or just GrooVR, which is VR for music with different world around you, pretty awesome.

In games S7 is the worst phone out of all flagships, it does not effect all games but it perform poorly, throttling on purpose.

I need Pokemon Go, great way to lose some weight hehe.

I'll probably don't walk along my friends though, they walk like all day and far distances.

That's pretty disappointing to hear that it doesn't perform well.
Should have done my homework before deciding meh.

But it can be fixed i hope?

Now to look for a sexy case for my S7.

Spigen or UAG? leaning towards the UAG cause it looks pretty cool and is military grade.
But the Spigen looks very clean and stylish.

My dad has a Spigen on his S6 with a screen protector wich feels very nice!

EDIT: I got the phone, of course the first thing that needed to be done is................... installing Pokemon GO on it!

The damn thing got actually super hot to the touch, i thought it was about to explode but after 30min of use it went back to normal.
Not a damn clue what happened, it got very hot that it was uncomfortable to hold.

EDIT2: I'm buying this case, it's not that expensive and does the job just fine.

Borrowed a work colleagues S7 (non-edge) to load it with Sophos MDM (BYOD), installed a couple of apps and this thing turned in to a oven. Needs better cooling.

S7 edge batter is amazing. But s7 batter was not helpful. Yes 500 mah makes difference I guess.

Did anyone have interest with note 7 ?

TBH nothing beats S7 edge as a whole package, i do wonder if it possible to make waterproof dual stereo speakers, as that the lowest point of the S7, awful speaker and awful game performance due to sammy throttling on purpose, thanks god for ROOT.

Note 7 is sexy in design, but it does not have any ace over S7E, i might get it because of the design, but i honestly looking for improvement over S7E, sadly Note 7 is not the answer.

And yes, i yesterday got 7:20 sot with 1d 12h use, that battery is amazing.

S7 does not have any overheat issue though, not even when using VR.

Also a side note. Was using Chrome and adblock browser. Now tried Samsung own browser with adblock.

Heat is less. Interesting. Samsung coded this for good?
