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.

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
