Some T-Mobile customers will receive their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 tomorrow

Is 15 the new 19? The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is supposed to arrive at buyers' homes on August 19th. But some T-Mobile customers who pre-ordered the device are discovering that they will be receiving the high-end phablet this Monday, August 15th. 

The phone was given the Galaxy Note 7 moniker, skipping the Galaxy Note 6 name. According to the rumors, Sammy was concerned that by calling it the Note 6, consumers would believe that it was one generation behind the Samsung Galaxy S7. And now, both the Galaxy S phone series and the Galaxy Note phablet line will be in sync.

Besides the new iris scanner allowing you to unlock your Galaxy Note 7 by simply batting your Baby Blues at the sensor, the Galaxy Note 7 is now IP68 certified. That means that the unit can be submerged in up to 3 feet of water for as long as 30-minutes, and emerge unscathed.

If you received an email that is telling you to expect the Galaxy Note 7 to be dropped off at your doorstop on Monday, go ahead and do your happy dance. You deserve it.

Contact ups. I can assure you no carrier is going to jeopardize anything with Samsung by shipping out ahead of launch. Wait until the tracking shows "on truck" . Ups doesn't pickup on weekends nor does it deliver.

Seems like every major release t-mobile customers always get theirs first and Verizon customers get theirs last.

Yeah. Verizon sucks. When my co workers show me a YouTube it's buffering too much. Then I say hang on, I will look it up and we watch on my phone.

The only phone I ever pre-ordered that I had to wait for, was the iPhone, on VZW. I pre-ordered my Note 5 on VZW and I got it on its retail availability date, just like it was suppose too. But on TMobile, I got th2 S6 Edge+ early by 2 days.

I would buy it, but there is something missing in unboxing videos - the battery.

I swear people kill me with this excuse for why they don't want a phone. So you only get LG phones then?

Is the USB-C compliant with USB 3.1 or 2.0? Samsung's website lists both.

USB 3.1 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. USB Type-C is just a connector which you can run USB 2.0 through USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds across. USB Type-C connector does not imply USB 3.1 or 3.1 Gen 2 speeds, so you have to make sure what speed you're getting, cuz it really could be plain old USB 2.0. :(

Yes, I know what USB-C is. Again, is the USB-C on the Note7 compatible with USB 3.1?

It's like, my phone says 4g and 3g both..So what might it be?

More simple answer... it's USB 2.0

21. kevin91202

Well that sucks. What is the point of upgrading to USB-C without 3.1? Faster charging? How much faster is it going to be? Making it charge too quickly will only degrade the life of the battery sooner.

Quick charging a better, that was designed to be quick charged, dowsnt prematurely degrade the battery https://www.qualcomm.com/products/snapdragon/quick-charge/faq Qualcomm explains it in that FAQ. No matter how many times you guys claim that quick charging batteries degrades th3mx will never make it true. It does ot. The batteries are designed to be quick charged. If you try to charge them.improperly then am sure you could. I use my Samsung Quick Charger also to charge stuff thst doesn't quick charge. It doesn't hurt them either. Their is a circuit that prevents the battery from getting more voltage than it is designed to take. That is why you can use pretty much any OEM charger with any brand of device.

On the us website, it lists it as 3.1, on the global website, it's listed as 2.0. I'm thinking the Snapdragon variant will be 3.1, the exynos will be 2.0. However, I called Samsung here in Canada, and was told it's 3.1...so, might be a typo, or false claim from the representative over the phone.

Just to clarify my original question regarding USB 3.1: I am interested if it's USB 3.1 Gen 2 because USB 3.1 Gen 1 is the same as USB 3.0. It was renamed by the USB alliance to probably confuse the consumer. Anyways, USB 3.1 Gen 1 (same as USB 3.0) is still way better than USB 2.0, but Gen 2 would be nice...for bragging rights.
