Another real cool feature for this phone is it’s charging ability.  Read MIKE TANASYCHUK from Android Central below:

Best wireless charging pads for Galaxy Note 7

Samsung Fast Charge

What’s the best wireless charger for Galaxy Note 7? Any that are Fast Charge-enabled!

The Galaxy Note 7 has a big ol’ 3500 mAh battery, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to last you all day if you push the phone hard. That huge 5.7-inch screen and high-end specs take a lot to power and you might need to charge up throughout your day.

A wireless charger lets you remain free of annoying cables, so you can just pick up your phone, do what you need to do, and put it right back on the charger. There are a ton of wireless charging stands, but not all of them are compatible with Samsung’s Fast Charge.

We’ve rounded up the best of the best and all of these chargers are Fast Charge-enabled so that you don’t have to wait around all day for a fill-up.

Note: For all of these charging stands and pads (except Samsung), you must use the wall adapter that came with your Note 7. Otherwise, you’ll be getting regular Qi charging and not Fast Charge.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release Just around the Corner

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release Just around the Corner




Are you excited about the soon to be released Samsung Galaxy Note 7?  I am.  Check out what they are saying about it here.  Neat new tech coming out says Patrick O’Rourke from Mobile Syrup:

 

Note 7’s iris scanner tech will eventually come to Samsung’s mid-range phones

note7-3

One of the more exciting features included in Samsung’s recently revealed Note 7is its iris scanning technology, which allows users to log into their phone just by looking at it.

In an interview with SamMobile, D.J. Koh, president of Samsung’s Mobile division, said his company plans to bring the technology to its mid-range devices when the tech behind it becomes more affordable. He also went on to claim that part of why the Note 7 is priced so high is because of the included scanner.

While I didn’t get to go hands-on with the iris scanner during Samsung’s recent Unpacked event in New York, if the feature works as well as the company says it does, it could change the way we log into our phones.

Mobile Syrup had more to say about the Note 7.  Rose Behar explains more specs below:

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 runs the Snapdragon 820 in Canada rather than the Exynos 8890 chip

note7-13

 

In a direct reversal from the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung’s Note 7 phablet flagship is shippin in Canada with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset rather than the Exynos 8890 processor.

It was initially reported on MobileSyrup that the phone would use the Exynos 8890, based on the knowledge that past Canadian Samsung devices, like the devices in the rest of the company’s global markets, held chips from its own Exynos line, while U.S. customers alone received chips from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon brand.

This division made sense, as Snapdragon chips support the CDMA standard, which is still operational in the U.S. through several carriers, while in Canada the majority of mobile subscribers have been transferred over to the GSM standard.

However, perhaps in the interest of simplifying shipping to the North American market, Samsung Canada has let MobileSyrup know that the Note 7 will receive the same chip as our American counterparts.

Comparatively, the chips have similar specs, both coming at 64-bit and 14nm, though the Snapdragon 820 is quad-core while the Exynos 8890 is octa-core.

Looks like the Note 7 starts out of the gate in record numbers.  So says Rob Triggs over at Android Authority see what he had to say below:

 

Galaxy Note 7 breaks South Korean pre-order record

samsung galaxy note 7 hands on aa second batch-20

 

Some were wondering whether or not the new SamsungGalaxy Note 7 does enough differently from the Note 5 to justify a purchase. Well, pre-order data from South Korea suggests that the phone is going to be a hit, in fact it’s looking to be Samsung’s biggest launch in quite a long time.

According to a local report, more than 200,000 Galaxy Note 7 handsets have been pre-ordered in South Korea in just two days. This number doubles the number of orders for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The news makes the Note 7 the most pre-ordered Galaxy phone in South Korea to date, a major win for Samsung in its home country. Furthermore, Strategy Analytics believes that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are already Android’s most popular phones, both having already sold 13 million and 12 million units respectively. A little bit of extrapolation based on these pre-order numbers paints a very promising picture for Galaxy Note 7 sales.

Really cool! finish his story here:

All this does for me is increase the anticipation of getting this bad boy in the store for everybody to see, touch & experience.  Looking forward to it.  Watch here to see when I have it!
