So, what does that tell you then ? We certainly haven't been told the whole story regarding the battery issue. If it was related only to a defect in the battery, then ramping down the performance wouldn't be an issue UNLESS, they didn't actually change the battery in the replacement units, just altered the strain on the defective batteries.

 

Either way, you've paid for phones with considerably less performance than advertised and Samsung is trying to get away with it. And then there's also the possibility of the batteries potentially going BOOM ! Why did they lower the performance if the battery is ok ?

Hello @Roglebo

You should receive it sometime this week. The blue coral is a hard one to make apparently.

Hi @Meowmix

 

I have just received 2 emails from UPS : 1 LBS and 3 LBS.

Something is coming . . . at last!

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Reservation numbers / Questions

If you look at the Geekbench scores for all Android phones, the Note 7 is listed at 1.6GHz, both single and Multi-core. The geekbench 4 score on the Note 7 I have lists it at  1.59GHz. No tangible difference.

 

I'm no tech guy but there doesn't seem tio be a difference from the original benchmark scores to what's being displayed on the phone now.

 

If the Chinese article ( and I can't read it ) is factual, why hasn't the mainstream tech media picked up on this ?

 

UPDATE: On further inspection of the results, the single and multicore results suggest the phone is running equivalent to the Note 5. There's clearly a performance lag for whatever reason.

I'd checked before and after with my own eyes, I can't explained the reason why the score will change so much from 4800 to less than 4000, you tell me.
And the scores can't lie.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Reservation numbers / Questions

I've updated the initial assessment of the phone I have. According to Geekbench 4, it's performing at the Note 5 level. Nowhere near the level of the Note 7 prior to recall or the exynos version of it today.

 

Wow, I'm at a loss for words with Samsung at his point. Why should anyone trust anything they say or do going forward ?? I would certainly be pushing to return the device and get your money back.

 

What a joke !

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Reservation numbers / Questions

Ok so i just got my replacement note 7 blue. So whats the final verdict, Do we keep the accessories and only send back the device?

Also how does one do a factory reset on the old device?

And finally, do I need to insert the Rogers SIM card first before turning on and setting up the new device to avoid some problems reported here?

Thx

Hello @Kake777

Yes as the paper inside says they only want the Note 7. So yes you can keep all accessories with you and just send back the device.

Go into Settings - LockScreen and Security - Reset and back up on the bottom of the list.

Yes you do as if u set up the device and then add the Rogers sim, it will restart the phone back to factory settings. So add ur Rogers sim and then do everything from there.
