Pre-orders now being accepted for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (FE); device goes on sale July 7th


South Korean carrier LG Uplus has started taking reservations for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (FE) phablet. The Fan Edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is essentially a refurbished version of the device that Samsung pulled off the shelves last year after random units exploded. The only change is the battery, which now has a lower 3200mAh cell instead of the 3500mAh battery that powered the original Galaxy Note 7.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was beloved by many despite the obvious failings it had. But the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is expected to be introduced as soon as next month, which is why the Galaxy Note 7 (FE) is being limited to 450,000 units in South Korea. While Samsung is thought to have taken a hit to the tune of $5 billion on the original device, selling the refurbished model gives the company an opportunity to recover a small amount of the loss.

The Galaxy Note 7 (FE) is expected to be priced at KRW 700,000, which converts into $611.40 USD at today's exchange rates. According to a poster released by LG Uplus, the phone is being launched on July 7th as previously rumored.

It's as bad as any iPhone user drooling over the iPhone 7. Which overs a lot less. This Note 7 FE $610 USD. The iPhone 7 is $650 USD, and comes with only 32 GB of non expandable storage, 2GB of ram, a low resolution HD display, LTE cat 9, no fast charging or wireless charging, a slow lightning port that only supports USB 2.0 transfer speeds, no pen support. This Note 7 FE has a larger AMOLED QHD display, a pen, 64 GB of expandable storage, 4 the of ram, LTE cat 12, fast charging and wireless charging, USB-C with USB 3.1 transfer speeds. Not to mention it can to real multitasking and split screen as well. Oh, and it even supports VR. Something that Apple still doesn't support.

You should know by now that specs aren't the only thing that matter when you are discussing iphones(2gb RAM only, really? Those 2gigs offer you a better multitasking experience than 4 and even 6 gigs, let's not forget about speed and fluidity of the system,shall we?).

Those two gb of ram offer you NO multitasking. IOS doesn't multitask.

You should get to know iOS better, you'd be surprised. If iOS doesn't multitask, can you explain how iPads run multiple apps at once? How you get notifications from background apps? "iOS doesn't multitask" is one of the biggest myths about iOS there is, and a plain lie.

iPads are not iPhone's. iPhone's don't have multitasking or split screen multitasking. Developers cannot do real multitasking on iPhone's, only Apple can. Also please describe how you can do split screen multitasking on your iPhone. I and many others will wait for you to explain how that is done. Come on. Don't Keep us waiting.

As far as specs are concerned, if the iPhone 7 was an Android smartphone, then it would barely get $200 with it's low end specs. Yet Apple sells that thing for $650. No wonder why Apple has record profits.

Jailbreak, install any of the multitasking tweaks from cydia. You're 20kb away from multitasking. That's the thing. Even with these specs , an iPhone 6s will run current iOS without any hiccups. You just can't say the same about a s6. That's why specs don't matter in iPhones and why the masses buy them for such a price. They don't care about those niche functions, they just want a functional and a easy that won't fail on them phone.

Oh, goodie jailbreak your iPhone. Void the warranty. I was waiting for some idiot to list jailbreaking. How many people actually jailbreak their iPhone's these days? The numbers of people that actually jailbreak their iPhone's these days are tiny. Also you forgot about the developer part. Apple themselves restrict iOS to the point that developers cannot do real multitasking with iOS. But I guess that doesn't matter to you. iPhone's are multi switching because the task you left is now halted.

Void the warranty lmao. Go to iTunes and update iOS and you get your warranty back. You can't say the same about rooting and voiding Knox can you? ;)

Actually, yes. You can. I have a custom hybrid rom on my S7 Edge. All I need to do is flash stock back, and everything is as was. The difference is, as iTunes is needed to get out of jailbreak, Apple can tell your phone was modified. Samsung will have no idea with mine.

Apple will never know if you've jail broken if you return to stock from iTunes . Going to download mode presents warranty void 0x0? Id love to get that rom on my s7, can you link it to me? Is your phone the snapdragon version and the root method flashing an engineer boot loader? I don't hate on android, but I can't say the same about you and iOS. Most of the stuff you say it's the same from other fanboys that don't understand the bare minimum from iOS.

Yep, engineering bl, S/D version. I believe only the Verizon model works. I don't understand iOS. This coming from the guy who thinks it multitasks. That's funny. I don't hate on iOS, I simply stated a fact. It doesn't multitask on the iPhone.

You're connecting to Apple servers to update the phone, it's the only way you can do it. I guarantee you they know.

Just because I decided to update now, it must've been because I decided to unjailbreak. Okay, you're a troll. Take the cake, you won.

What did that prove? Nothing. I stated that in order to revert to stock, you need to go through iTunes, and as such Apple knows your iPhone was jailbdoken. They do. No need to get angry because you were shown up about multitasking.

You just proved you know nothing about Apple's ecosystem. https: //youtu.be/lCFpgknkqRE If I were you, I'd see that video and finally admit I was wrong. But that won't happen, it's too hard to admit you're wrong here, it's easier to just hate on the system and talk about stuff you don't even know about. Of course iTunes will detect the phone is jailbroken while in recovery mode and without any system access whatsoever lul

Most consumers buy the iPhone not for developing or for work . All they do is make phone calls, wechat, whatsapp, imessage, facebook, instagram, snapchat, etc. Most consumers buy the iphone to be connected to social media. They are not tech savvy's. They simply don't care about real multitasking or how fast usb port transfer is. They just want a phone to make phone calls and play games.

You must be that kind of noobs who believe just because it's still in the background, so it's still working and can be counted as multitasking. This logic is like saying I have 10 games running in the background so my computer is multitasking 10 games. LOL ever heard of simultaneous multitasking?? And let me point out something for you, iOS on iPad is not the same thing as iOS in iPhone. That thing lead me to doubt if you really have used iOS on iPad. Rofl

You should definitely check android authority's video about multitasking on iOS, just because android fanboys use it as an argument, it doesn't mean it doesn't multitask. And iOS from the iPad it's the same from the iPhone with slight tweakZing.

It doesn't. Period. It's purposefully left out of iOS on the iPhone, so it can't. Third party apps go to sleep immediately once in the background. It's a fact.

Then 2GB is enough, why does iPad Pro have 4GB then?

"Then 2GB is enough, why does iPad Pro have 4GB then?" Because, according to them, the iPad Pro can replace your PC. SMH

They don't. They freeze the apps when they go to background, saving the current data and take a screen shot of it. When you call the app back up, it shows the screen shot until the app is loaded.

That's precisely why you need blazing single core performance on iOS. The simplest test would be: hitting return on a website on your preferred browser, pressing the home button and scroll around. When you return to the browser, only then will it start loading the webpage. On Android the page would already be loaded.

Just tested that, page is fully loaded when coming back to app. Apps only freeze after some time or when ram starts to get full. While you got available ram, iOS and android deal with it in a similar way, that's what android fanboys don't understand.

No, they don't. IOS on the iPhone puts third party apps to sleep in the background. Thats the way its built. It does not multitask.
