    On my note 5 I would sync to evernote so my notes were available on PC or tablet. This appears to no longer be an option on note 7. Prior to evernote I was using Samsung account but notes were deleted when switching phones so I don't trust the Samsung account. I could be missing something so if someone has figured this out then your input is appreciated

    no way to back it up natively. you can use smart switch on a computer. that requires you to regularly plug it in, of course.

    This has been a bummer for me. I would have liked to have Screen Off Memos directly saved to Evernote, just like action memos were back in my Note Edge days. Now I have to manage 2 apps for this :( I am a huge Evernote user and currently have all my note files in it.

    Not sure why you're notes are not showing up in New phone but I've had Samsung since the Note 2 and all my notes showed up in every phone every time. I'm just asking but do you backup up your phone to Samsung?

    I would like screen off memos to stay on the screen until I turn the screen back on. I am usually in a hurry and just jotting something down to remember until I can get somewhere to write it down in a more orderly way. I have a problem with short term memory and live by my notes and alarms. Remembering that I jotted something down and it is now on my phone but I don't see it won't work for me. Out of sight, out of mind.

    I have NO IDEA why Samsung didn't include Action Memo! How hard could that possibly be? Write a note and immediately link it to Contacts, Phone, Mail... even Navigation. Now all we can do is take notes. WTH, Samsung????

    EDIT: Samsung must have heard us because, apparently, Action Memo is coming back next month:
