    Still holding a good old note 3 which is indestructible and even immersed in water , beer and a 15 feet drop off. It’s about time to change but no particular reason for this switch. Please advice me a good reason.

      I have actually on every note made since the first one. They have all been really great phones. I think you’re quite fortunate to have received one that is so indestructible. Unfortunately like most of the technology we have received over the years you probably won’t be so lucky for much longer. Eventually all that wear and tear is going to take it back the processing system and general Electronics of the phone. I personally love the new technologies that keep coming out. But if you like yours that much hold on to it. And even replace it with another Note 3 if you want. But I think if you give the new models a chance you’ll find more great phones and many new awesome things you can do with them.

    This article answered a lot of questions for me and was very helpful. I was beginning to think that the new Note 7 would only be in Edge phone. I don’t like the edges I’m glad to know that there will be a regular one .
    I’m still a little confused about the Note 6 Note 7 information. At one point I understand that the Note 6 is the Note 7 and they’re skipping the Note 6, but then I read that the Note 6 will have 20 megapixel camera. Where the Note 7 is only 12. Can someone please elaborate on the differences between the two and will we be seeing the Note 6 come out after the note 7?

    One thing I commend Samsung is bringing back removable storage. I held on Note 3 just because other higher Notes didn’t have removable storage. I often travel to rugged non-data streaming regions of the world therefore I can’t rely on uploads for data storage safety. I once had a phone that didnt have removable storage and it crashed/broke thereby losing all my data and I made that a lesson – no more non-removable storage devices.
    Note 7 = take my $$$.
    I believe Samsung have chosen non-removable battery to make it more water resistant. For those who want a removable battery then you compromise water resistance characteristics.
