    i do agree about the camera and the battery but not bixby ,i'm not saying bixby is great but i can't look at it as a letdown so fast, however my third let down is the speaker samsung should've brought a better stereo loudspeaker.
    now about the camera i think that samsung is saving it for the note 8 ,it isn't a bad thing because before, they used to bring the same S series camera to the NOTE series now they would do the opposite so it can be a huge leap for the note 8 when u think about that it will be 1.5 years ahead of the last gen camera (s7) and not just the usual 1 year
    the s7's camera is not bad in any mean and for me i don't care about any of the features u mentioned no zoom,no extra wide lens , and no stupid stuff that i would never use one month after i purchase my phone nothing but the best quality .
    my biggest issue is the battery life and i think it might not be fixed with the note 8 since they would probably play it safe battery wise
    loudspeakers got to be fixed with the note 8 but it isn't a deal breaker

    Pretty premature with the negatives.
    1) The camera is better, improvements are in the software side, look at demos from others that have shown this. Show a real comparison to back this up.
    2) Battery, no real life testing is to back this up either, until then no one knows. Maybe less power consuming processor and better battery algorithm helps here.
    3) Bixby, this is basically a beta release here and it seems Samsung will spend a lot of time, effort and money to make it a good AI. Some real demos today have actually shown some cool stuff using this.

    It is just to soon to agree with you here with those negatives.

    You cant really expect Samsung to increase the battery size after what happened with the note 7. They probably want to play it safe and maybe next year they will try to improve.

    But there is no excuse for a better camera or speaker they should've definitely improved those things. They even partnered with Harmon kardon they could have worked with them for better speakers instead of those earphones even though those look nice

    Everyone is saying that this product give positive impressions, CNET states as a headliner, "Biggest LETDOWNS". Gosh CNET, more evidence of no hiding your lack of impartiality. Time to stop reviewing non Apple products and re-brand yourselves as AAL perhaps, Apple Arse Lickers…

    Samsung have the right digital assistant in the wrong product. I don't want this in my phone. I want Bixby in my TV.

    1. Fingerprint sensor location 2. battery size 3. Price too high for what is coming like the Pixel 2 and Iphone 8

    tbf the camera point was the exact same point made between the Nexus 6p's camera hardware and pixel and look how that camera turned out. the point about battery come on that's straight up retarded after the whole note 7 situation. agree with the bixby point although not really an issue has Google assistant on it to. issues such as the lack of stereo speakers should have been raised in this video a couple of these points where stupid.
