5 things that would've made the Galaxy Note 7 even more awesome

However, perfection is still a few steps away from the Note 7. And yes, most gripes one would have with the new phablet can be considered nitpicking, but there are a few flaws, which we find a bit harder to swallow. Check them out:
- Display 5.7" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2150 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3500 mAh
For me, the design, TouchWiz, and more ram.

It would have been easier if you just said "I hate Samsung"

I never said I hated Samsung. I have a Samsung TV, the Gear Fit 2, and a Samsung soundbar. Just because I talk about their phones doesn't mean I hate everything about Samsung. Oh I'm sorry, was I supposed to give fuel to the fire?

You don't like TouchWiz, I get (I love it though), But which part of the design do you don't like? because it looks better than any other flagship/non-flagship phone, it is water resistant and it packs a big battery. How does the iPhone 6S or the upcoming iPhone 7 looks better than the Note 7?

I think the S-Pen is why the battery is a little smaller.

I think you have a point there. But the galaxy notes have always had a bigger battery than the S series though, even with the S-pen..

I think you have a point either but you forgot something Well let me remind you.. s-line used to be 5.1"and not 5.5" found on the s7edge ,, be fair and compare s7 and not the edge version to the Note7.. 3000mah vs 3500mah.. the note is still very winning

Yes. But none of them has a battery that was 3500Mah though. Also consider, the Note was much larger than the older S series models. For example, the S3 was only 4.8, while the Note II was 5.5" The S4 was 5" while the Note 3 was 5.7 The S5 was 5.1" while the Note 4 was 5.7 The S6 is 5.2" and the Note 5 is 5.7 The S6 Edge+ was 5.7" and thus it had the same battery size as the Note 5. But every other S was a much smaller device and thus had a much smaller battery. Did you consider that? Considering that the Galaxy S7 Edge is 5.5" and the Note 7 is 5.7", all the space that would have been the extra battery size is taken away by the S-Pen and possibly the tech related to the scanner. Look at the dimensions of the S7 Edge vs the Note 7. 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm (6.04 x 2.91 x 0.31 in) VS 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm (5.94 x 2.86 x 0.30 in) As you can see the Note 7 isn't that much bigger. If the Pen wasn't inside the Note, you see that if the dimensions remained the same, you could actually put a larger cell in the Note vs the S7 Edge.

Well, it does have a bigger battery than the S7. Traditionally, you only had the S and the Note. Now, you have another device in the mix, nearly the size of the Note, but no S-Pen taking up internal space.

it's actually hilarious watching people lose their minds over the 2.7% difference in battery between the s7 edge and note7.acting like the difference will be over 2 hours of SOT. And im just here like "but...but..blue coral"

How? The Note 5 is similar in size to the Note 7 yet they were able to fit a 3500 mAh battery verses a 3000 mAh. They had the capability to put a bigger battery in the Note 5 but it was a strategic move not to so they could say how much better the 7 is. Just watch Samsung put a 4000+ mAh battery in the Note 8 while being similar in size. They jewed us.
