    heard a lot of bad reviews for the note 7 I did look at it but meh, the galaxy s7 edge is better than it. Plus... who uses the pens these days for use on a phone.

    Bad reviews. Where, all I can find is brilliant reviews, other than the direct speed comparison with iPhone 6S models. Everything else looks good

    You got it yet? Any good?

    Turned up at 10, love it!

    The new gear vr is amazing too

    Screen is unbelievable on this thing. Sat out in the sun and it's perfect clarity.

    Can't fault it

    selling my note 4 tomorrow on here so keep an eye out. Never heard of that other brand

    Finally set mine up and having a play with it. Much smoother than note 4 I was using. Also been to cpw and collected my vr headset. Bought phone sim free in-store and was told I would get it. Made a point of them making a note on their system as they never read their own small print.

    Some great free stuff about on the oculus store, the jurassic Park demo was amazing, I had to take the headset off at one point!

    How's the note 7 going so far? I've never had a note before but was thinking to myself maybe someday my next phone could end up being the galaxy s7 edge or an s8. My current phone still has a lot of life in it so no plans to change just yet. Never looked at the note before until I heard of this one.

    benjammin316, did you order from sansung ?

    I'm still waiting for a phone call from carphonewarehouse to say it's in stock.

    How did you pull that one off? they would only sell the headset with line rentals.. and were insistent on it.

    Ordered mine in the first few hours after preorder opened on the 16th and still no contact about delivery yet. I've called and emailed CPW but just get contradicting info.

    !! That means I have no chance of getting mine. I pre ordered last Thu. Let us know what happens. Nobody ever picks up their phones! Local store phone number cuts off after 6 mins every time. Main number is always busy and in a queue.

    Apparently you can connect the note 4 to the note 7 and transfer data

    Yeah direct from Samsung, as soon as pre orders went live at 6am

    Waiting for their flexible screen device myself

    I pre ordered mine 2 weeks ago from carphone warehouse (VR included) they told me I could pick it up today, went into the store today, they said it hadn't arrived yet and that even if it had arrived they couldn't give it to me until friday (2/09) because Samsung said they are not allowed to give any phones out? I have not seen this anywhere else anybody else had problems or know what I could say to them?

    Total contradiction to what they told me. I was told I will be able to collect it 30/31st August. Samsung themselves have posted the phones.. been reading on ee and o2 forums.

    My local CPW don't have the most clued up advisor's. They didn't really know much about the note 7 or it's offer. So I pointed it out and they went off what was advertised. The woman failed to read their own small print and agreed to include the VR for me. Only today when the VR didn't come with the phone when it was delivered they tried backing out until they look on the system and seen the note about me getting it or coming into store to pick one up and realised their error. I pre-ordered on 18th August and was first to do so in that store

    That is correct. You install the Smart Switch app on the Note 4 as it's already installed on note 7. Use the usb cable for note 4 and connect to the adapter you get with the 7. This turns it onto a otg adapter and allows for back up of note 4 and restores onto 7. Easy to do. Or you can do it via WIFI

    Just contacted CPW again. They're now telling me the Note 7 is out of stock and all orders are subject to stock and availability. They didn't state when they will have stock. At this rate, I don't think I'll get my preorder even on launch day.

    I preordered the Black Onyx, about 9.30am on 16th August.

    Guys at carphonewarehouse are bunch of jokers and lied.
    Told me I could collect it 30/31 Aug.
    Now they are expecting stock 9th Sept. .. might not even have stock on the 2nd Sept .. launch day.

    They sold out pretty quick.
    Website stopped taking orders and advised on going to other merchants.
    Have a case and screen protector ready for it too

    Communication has been non-existent from CPW, but maybe the following has something to do with the delay...?

    They have to make up for that tax bill now. Better call it £800 to be safe.

    Just never knew stock levels etc would be this bad. I would understand if it was the new iphone.... my loss lol

    Pfft, you'd expect Samsung to have more stock of their second flagship phone wouldn't you?
    Either they seriously misjudged how many they'd sell or it's a deliberate marketing ploy.

    Maybe it's a really good phone but I just can't justify paying £700 for a phone, although I could justify paying £600 for a Sony camera.

    I pre ordered from very and my estimated delivery date is 24th Sept!

    Maybe the delayed orders are because of this

    7 so far have exploded in Korea. Samsung are stopping shipments until they find out the problem.....

    No need, every time a new iPhone or iPad is released one of my clients send me one. New toys for zero cash I love it.
