Are you pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 7? (poll results)

Are you pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 7? (poll results)
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2, and started taking pre-orders for it one day later. In the US, all major carriers are already accepting pre-orders, and plan to release the brand new handset later this month.

Most smartphone users out there seem to like the Galaxy Note 7, but that, of course, isn't enough to actually make them buy one. With that in mind, last week, we published a poll to find out how many of our readers were ready to pre-order the new Note - which comes with at least one gift at no extra cost, including a 256 GB Samsung memory card, or a Gear Fit 2 band. As you can see below, almost half of those who voted (45.72%) said that they would pre-order the device, while the rest of 54.28% weren't interested. That's certainly not bad for a handset that's still considered somewhat of a niche product. 

The Galaxy Note 7 is Samsung's first Note to be dust- and water-resistant, as well as the company's very first smartphone to feature an iris scanner. It's also the first in the Note series - among recent models - not to have a 32 GB variant, coming with 64 GB of expandable internal memory by default (this is, of course, great news).

Prices for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 start at $849.99 (off contract). Pre-orders will be open until August 19, when the device will hit shelves across the US, as well as in various other markets. In South Korea, Samsung's home country, the Note 7 already broke pre-order records. It looks like this may very well be the most successful Note to date, isn't it?

Samsung phones are far too laggy.

No, I'm living in 2016, a time where Samsung phones still lag more than they should. I owned the Note 5 for about 5 months. It started off great but slowly got laggier and laggier. I never experienced this with my 6P.

I've had the Note 5 ever since it was released and it didn't get laggy after a few months. Try again.

You're right. Everyone on /r/Android knows that Samsung is still notorious for quick aging hardware. Denial is common here. Regardless, I'll be purchasing a Note Six.. I mean 7.

I've had my Note 5 since it first became available, and I can say, without a doubt, I've never experienced this horrible lag you speak of. My phone works marvelously and I'll be buying the note 7, as well.

My 6S Plus gets lag, and iOS 8 was a train wreck on my 6 Plus. Now what?

Now my experience has been, when it comes to the 4 US variants of the Note or any other phones, since we have users on all 4 carriers, that some models due to bloat tend to be not as fast as others. The VZW model in my experience is certainly not as fast as the T-Mobile version. But neither of them lag. Its just one responses faster vs the other. But that difference is so minute, it isn't even worth mentioning. But just claiming they are outright laggy is BS. Since I have 2 in my possession and I know mine and my wife's are filled with our own personal junk, I have noticed no drop in speed and its a year old now.

Youre confusing your brain with Samsung phones

Not a fan of Samsung, "Monsieur Creep"... But your statement is, I'm afraid, is an 'Overstatement'... Low tier Samsung Phones do suffer with lag... But not the Flagships, I trust... G'Day!™

Wow, that's a lot higher than I expected. I get it for free since I only keep it 6 months with Jump on Demand, and the $250 memory card is worth more than what I'll pay in monthly payments. Thanks T-mobile.

Dear Phonearena, Please publish the polls on the home page so that whoever visits the site could have a chance to vote it and the number of votes could be increased. Seriously you cant come to the precise conclusion only with these 1400 voters!! Please get rid off one of your head bursting ad and make space exclusively for polls.

I follow PhoneArena and get to the articles via Twitter... So, I'd say that PA must conduct pools on Twitter...! I've my opinion, you've got your opinion... Thing is, mate... Opinions are like "holes", everybody has one... BTW, I've seen polls with barely a dozen voters...! 1,400 Voters is a respectable number... G'Day!

Already done, cases have already arrived, now just the wait. Nothing this year will be on the Note 7's level.

Spigen and Myrrian, both crystal clear, soft gel.

Spigen makes some killer cases.

Yep, they do, but the Myrrian is actually the better one of the 2.

Caseology is (I think) a new player. I got a free one as a beta tester and reviewer on their Caseologist program. So far it's really nice, but have to wait until the 19th to get a real review.

I thought you were saying that the note 7 was a minor increment a few weeks ago? And now nothing in 2016 is at its level?

Have you tried the demo units? Had the chance to use one at the mall, man I never expected an edge device would feel so nice in the hand.

At £700 I would have to decline. I would rather buy a GTX 1080. :-D

You should, the GTX1080 is a total monster card :)

Already preordered the coral blue one and ordered a case. I got the gear s2 3g for free thru ATT .
