Samsung Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) vs the old Note 7: Here are the differences

Like a phoenix from the fiery ashes, the newly-announced Samsung Galaxy Note FE "Fan Edition" is now official, enabling folks feeling nostalgic about the Note 7 to grab a safe variation of the phone. Sort of — only 400,000 units will be ever manufactured, with the majority of these intended for Samsung's home turf, South Korea, and no confirmation that other major markets will be getting a taste of the Note FE yet.

Anyway, availability issues aside, the Note FE is a curious device that's pretty much similar to the Note 7 in almost any imaginable way, but with a few key differences. Let's explore them right here, right now!

Expect a comment from Bankz, Lumbergh(aka Flash, aka Mxy, aka batmite) trashing this device and talk about lag when they've never owned any of the devices they usually want to lecture us about.

I don't know why those trolls don't want to be normal, reasonable, and non-hating Apple users. Like that Amashiz guy for example, he's an Apple user, but he doesn't blindly hate non-Apple brands.

There are blind fanboys on both camps, like the notorious Techie on the Samsung side, but these trolls have stepped up their game big time. You won't find a Samsung article where they're not there, and you have Mxy with his multiple accounts always stalking DJ, the same DJ he used to praise when he used prefer iPhones over Galaxy phones.

Yes there are, Techie is worth 10 trolls, even in post length alone LOL. Apple haters have the dominant number in the past right? But ever since the Note 7 incident, Samsung haters skyrocketed. I was there when Mxy was very friendly to DJ, I find it funny how he chooses his friends or enemies based on what phone they like LOL

That says a lot about his age and maturity. And what boggles my mind is how Techie is an Apple user yet he is always bashing them. Me and DJ never believed him when he used to mention what iPhone or iPad he purchased as of late, until I saw his videos and pictures of his Apple gadgets on his Flickr page. Like why would you spend your money on stuff you bash 24/7?

What? Wow, I did not expect that. Well at least he's honest despite being a fanboy/hater. I can imagine Mxy doesn't even have the balls to criticize the stuff he uses.

I Remember when he'd be cheering me, when I'd defend Apple, he loved me then. He made the mistake of thinking I was a blind ass fanboy...not. He didn't realize, I'd defend Samsung and criticize Apple just as quick. I told the Apple cores, I have no brand loyalty, I have wallet loyalty. I'm a tech enthusiast, and will buy what I want. Over the years, Samsung simply caught up to, and passed Apple and I couldn't deny that fact. They do more of what I like, and deserve to be my go to OEM. Battymiteflashmxy (get it lol), can't stand me now lol. Ncxt did the same thing, oh well.

Well....thank you for those kind words. I appreciate them :)

Sorry for misspelling you name. Anyways, you deserve those kind words, as I don't see you going around bashing other products just because they're not from the same brand as the phone you like. You have my respect.

It's great to see someone recognize your positive aspects and reflect them onto a forum full of crazy geeks. Especially when you try day and night to stay unbiased when arguing on such a controversial topic, known as the 'smartphone'. I am deeply affected by your words and would continuously try to be as fair in my arguments, and my thoughts, as possible. Thanks for the respect.........and the motivation. You're awesome!

This guy is a real fake. He claims to not be a fanboy, yet he's constantly d!ckriding Samsung fans whenever possible. Everyone is a troll except him. He's like that kid trying too hard to be cool, but failing miserably.

Oh really? Why did Samsung fanboys call me Apple famboy when I was constantly praising the new iPad Pros? Why did the Samsung fanboys call me Sony fanboy when I wash bashing them for hating anything Sony just because of bezels? Just because you hate me doesn't mean I'm a fanboy of a company that molested you LMAO.

I believe that Lumberg guy is a previously banned account by the name "Hillary is a killer" or "killary" or something like that.

I doubt it, this account and Mxy's other accounts share lots of similarities.

I think its kumar. Similar insults, similar vulgarity and similar fast upvotes. Mxy only gets 2-3 upvotes usually. Kumar used to get 6-7 likes atleast and so does Lumbergh.

27. maherk

Posts: 6956; Member since: Feb 10, 2012

I doubt it for one reason, Kumar insults were on a different level, especially if they were directed at me.

Its actually SamsungFanboy if you remember him. He used to upvote himself with other accounts just like him.

You took the words straight out of my mouth. Bullseye.

Good point. You roasted him quite a lot. "I love Samsung, biggest fan but their phones laaaaag, iPhone is the best. But I'm not their fan." That guy was really desperate for attention. But I still think its kumar.

Remember that guy "SamsungPhanboy"? He gets the same instant likes. Man those trolls are multiplying like bacteria it's crazy.

It just boggles my mind how they're this thirsty for attention, that they find the need to create multiple accounts and upvote their own comments. Like how sad is your life that a simple green plus next to your comments has a big impact on your life?
