I'm torn between the blue and the black.

 

Also, want to see what google and apple brings out next.

 

Arggggg.

 

There should only be 1 release date for all of the things... 12/24!

Black is very nice! I didn't think I would like it, but it's different from the normal black and silver sides.

Can anyone comment on the signal reception compared to their old device? Is it better or worse?  Are you holding on to LTE better?

I will actually still have my note 5 active on my line so I will be able to compare the best. But until the blue coral note is in stores i refuse to buy it.

Just noticed that the note 7 has issues with SCP picking up Clear sites. Just displaying Sprint**

 

GCI is displayed correctly, so not the end of the world.

 

Ill have to report this to Mike.

This is odd, doesn't appear to have it, at least not yet. Maybe in an upcoming software update. You would've thought it come enabled right out of the box.

Maybe they're waiting to launch it until SMS goes over WiFi, then, so it's not the same situation as the S7 (going on six months waiting for that update...)?

Looking at that coral blue as well, it looks amazing. I will probably hold out to see what Google has in store then go from there.

Is Sprint fully transitioned to IMS based WiFi calling yet?

 

Edit: Nope, though there are efforts to transition based on what is being mentioned in other threads and on Reddit.

For me it's holding on to B26 like a champ and it even works a bit where the Note 5 would pull .24 mbps I'm getting around 1 mbps, even in the bottom floor of my house where the Note 5 would drop to 3G, 1x800 or even VZW roaming.

Honestly the device is not all that keen on holding on to B41. It does great on B25 and B26. Comparing it with the S7 Edge, the Edge is a tad better signal wise. Granted the device just came out I'm thinking with a few updates it should be good. So far a pretty decent device, it's like a Note 5 with extreme cosmetic surgery, including Lipo...

IMO the Note 5 radios are better. Again I've only had the device since Friday.

Not what I wanted to hear, was hoping they would be a bit better than the Note 5. Surprisingly however any issues I had with my Note 5 have since corrected themselves I am back to great LTE everywhere, haven't seen 3G in a while.

I'll give a real update on note 5 vs note 7 when i can get the blue one. Side by side network comparison to really decide which is better. I expect the note 5 to win though.

    • I posted the below on the essential subreddit.  Wonder if others on sprint have the same issue?   "It is well noted that the essential has reception / radio problems but today, when I roamed on to US Cellular, it completely abandoned 1x and connected to LTE only. Which is fine when connected to Sprint because the phone can pass text messages over LTE. However, while roaming, the phone would not send or receive text messages and could not make or receive calls because it was latched to USCC LTE and needs a 1x connection to do this. My 5X (and I assume every other phone), when it connected to USCC LTE, would somehow get notification of a text or call and idle back over to 1x to take care of things and then dump the 1x connection until needed again (signal check shows all of this happening). Same deal when I would try to send a text as well. Seems the essential is dead in the water under these conditions and just can not bring it self to go to 1x when needed while roaming, at least on USCC. I do not have other roaming carriers up here to test with. I am sure we do not need to go into the problems with being completely unable to make a phone call in the very large areas that Sprint uses USCC to roam on. I can accept if it was just the area I was in. So in that case, any other Sprint users roamed on USCC LTE without any voice or text problems recently? I am on Oreo Beta for what its worth."
    • Twitter might give you better results. 
    • Essential's reception to the reception issues was not very receptive because their reception at the time was poor and they did not receive full receipt of the reception issues. AJ
