Buying a new phone? 7 good reasons to wait on the Galaxy Note 7

Buying a new phone? 7 good reasons to wait on the Galaxy Note 7
Given the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge rampant sales success, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated handsets for the second half of the year. Samsung is reportedly planning to go the S7 edge route, and release the Note 7 with a display that is slightly curved to the sides only, nothing with a flat screen, which will make the Note 7 narrower, and thus eventually more comfortable to hold.

As for the under-the-hood improvements, we don't expect much change from the S7/edge duo, except maybe 6 GB of RAM, or a slightly overclocked chipset in the purported Snapdragon 821 version, as well as a larger battery to back them all up. The venerable S Pen should also be taught some new tricks, but it's the combination of all these niceties and a few standout features that could really prime the Note 7 as a blockbuster handset.

Thus, if you are mulling a new phone purchase, it might be advisable to hit the pause button, and wait until August 2 when the phone will be announced. What would be the eventual reasons for relaxing your finger from the trigger? Check them out below.
