Are you pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

Are you pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
Yesterday, right after Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 7, we published a poll asking you if you liked the brand new smartphone. The majority voted yes, which means Samsung ticked most of the right boxes with the Note 7.

But liking a phone and being ready to pre-order it are two different things. Thus, we now have a new question: are you pre-ordering the Galaxy Note 7? In case you haven't heard, starting today, August 3, the device is available to pre-order from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Tomorrow, August 4, US Cellular will open pre-orders, too. Prices start at $849.99 (off contract, of course), and all customers who pre-order will receive at least one gift - including a free Gear Fit 2 band, or a 256 GB Samsung memory card (you can not choose both). We should also mention that, if you place a pre-order, you may receive your Note 7 before the official release date (August 19).

Compared to the Note 5, the Galaxy Note 7 offers important improvements and new features, including a dual curve screen, dust- and water-resistance, 64 GB of storage space by default, microSD card support, and iris scanner. For a closer look at the new smartphone, here's all you need to know about the Galaxy Note 7.

The S7 edge review will pretty much give you all the answers. I'm not trolling, I'm being serious!

You're not being serious. The S7 Edge doesn't feature water resistance, nor the S Pen.

Ok, how offer you are using the S(ame)pen?

It has pretty much the same hardware as the S7 edge and the S7 edge does feature water resistance. Also, what's to review about the S Pen anyway? It's just like Note 5 with more features.

did you need to make this poll? lol...

46% saying they pre-order is too high to be true. Assuming 30% readers using iphone at this forum and joining the vote, means more than 50% of the Android reader pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 7?

Agreed. Those numbers are beyond skewed.

Go look at the s7 edge battery test and there's your answer...

Just pre-ordered mine with T-Mobile. Process was painless. Phone is supposed to get to me on the 18th but just like the s7 edge we know that date can come earlier than announced. I believe I got my s7 edge a week before the street date. I wonder how long it's going to take Sammy to send the free gifts out after registration? That 256gb memory card can't get to me fast enough!

I'd be happy to get mine a day or so early to be able to take it on vacation. Barring that my daughter says she'll overnight it to me while I'm on the road.

Note 7 active international edition. Do it samsung and make it 5000mah battery. I don't like phablets before but since I had the compact s7 edge I am interested having note 7 since their dimensions are only millimeters apart.

You Samsung fanboys are idiots, they are asking for 850 and the phone doesn't even come globally unlocked like Nexus and iphone

Not everyone cares about a unlocked phone.

So you're the wise on, because you prefer Nexus? smh

Because an unlocked phone in the US has no benefit dummy. In the USA we have only 2 GSM carriers. Also the reason US phones aren't unlocked generally is because our FCC doesn't require it, because they are in bed with the carriers amongst other corps. What good is an unlocked phone on VZW or Sprint? When they aren't GSM. As far as the phone price? Its only $50 more than the S7 Edge. I don't really see the problem? I mean you are getting extras like the iris scanner, spen and usb type c and more. That si a lot for $50. Why are you even comparing a cheap Nexus to a Galaxy class smartphone. Did you see Star Trek into Darkness? The Nexus is like the Enterprise while the Note is like that ship that caught up to them in Warp. It was a Galaxy classed starship. The Note is the top of the galaxy line up. You comparing a Nexus to it is, dumb.

nexus and iphone support both CDMA and GSM networks in the US. know your shiit before you argue and get off your parent's family plan

If you count the mini's I'd say, 30 carriers. Not all of us like Samsung either so I don't see why you brought up its "class" when that phone is extremely expensive for what it does. I understand that more dollars means more features, but is that truly necessary? Do you know his needs? Techie, I never bother to read your essays past your first sentence but this: don't be that fanboy that's going to come to Sammy's rescue sword and shield. You sound pathetic. Not all of us need or want the latest. I'm perfectly fine investing in 2 60$ Android phones to get the job done instead of dropping almost Grand. Think.

What the hell are you talking about? I bought my s7 edge unlocked free from carrier responsibilities. Considering s7 edge was also launched at $850 tax included in my country, note 7 is a good upgrade for people who don't always buy phones and skipped s7 edge and note 5.

For all of my hemming and hawing I pre-ordered just as the Note 7 became available early this morning. Got the Blue Coral; my first phone 'of color' since a Sanyo SCP 5500(L) in October 2003. That Sanyo, being my sentimental all-time favorite phone, is why I chose blue.

My first phone is also blue, the ericsson T10. My car color is blue. In 2015 i was sad i could not get s6 in blue topaz.
