    No phone is worth over $1,000. Samsung's bonus & promotion helped bring down the price which is why I entertained it. I was told by Samsung Store they are LOSING money on the trade-in, more like not profiting as much.
    Buying a new phone is starting to sound like buying a new car. I swear I heard the same BS about losing money on the trade the last time I bought a car.

    If there was a phone leasing company, I would join it. If I could lease a phone for 3-6 months and exchange it for a new one, would be awesome!! lol

    I was in the same boat. All last week I was going crazy trying to decide between the 7 Pro or Note 10+. I was playing with the Note at Best Buy. It's a gorgeous phone but that hole punch just ruins the experience. I know people don't mind it but I just know it's going to drive me crazy lol. So I finally decided for OnePlus! It should have been a no brainer. Proud to say I'm going to place my order this week. Can't wait.

    I currently have both. Thought I'd give the note 10+ a try and just pay the restocking fee if it didn't blow me away.

    Note 10+ Things I like better:

    *Display is not as curved at the edges
    *Slightly larger display (noticable)
    *Bluetooth seems more consistent
    *Battery life seems slightly better
    *Vibration motor is ridiculous
    *Charges = to OP7pro, maybe faster w/25w charger
    *S pen is nice but not sure I'd use it
    *Lighter (this makes a difference)

    Places the OP7pro wins:

    *Price, duh....
    *Dual SIM (main reason I'm returning the note 10+)
    *OS is cleaner (but One UI is ok)
    *No notch or camera cut out
    *Display whites are whiter
    *Updates (though Samsung did push one through the day I purchased)
    *Alert slider

    If these phones were equally priced (and the US version of the Note had a hybrid dual SIM) I'd probably keep the Note. But the OP7 would be a damn close competitor, and that is a testament to what 1+ has actually achieved with a device that retails for about $500 less.

    Interesting. I also had both, although have sold the OnePlus. My observations are similar in most respects to yours. Primary reasons I prefer the Note 10+:
    1. The new Dex app. Ever since switching back from iOS to Android, with a MacBook Pro as my primary work laptop, I miss the deep integration. I've got it back and then some with the new Dex app.
    2. I love the screen size, and it is surprisingly noticeable.
    3. Android for Work/Intune apps (Mobile Device Management) show notifications on the Samsung Galaxy Watch, which I far prefer to any Android Wear.
    4. The S-Pen hand-writing recognition is insanely good, and this means I will use this a lot for taking notes.

    Those are pretty specific things. If others are looking and don't have those, I'd also recommend sticking to the OnePlus. It is a phenomenal phone, and for the price it's unbeatable. Oh, it also has much better resale value.

    Very good point about resale. I'm returning the Note today but, now that I've tried it there's a good possibility that I will eventually become a note user down the road a bit. There's a lot to love about it.

    I switched from a Pixel 3xl to a Note 10 and now I am reading these posts since I'm considering trying the 1+7. I really dislike the Note (mainly the One UI). I will probably wait until the Pixel 4 however.

    Never owned a phone from 1+ but I have owned Pixels. That's the one I'll be waiting for.

    Is anyone going to switch to the Note 10+? I considered it, but I'm still enjoying my 7 Pro.
    as an ex OP7P user.currently on the N10+.i would ask why would you even consider the N10+?wireless charging?Better camera?i sold my OP7P because in Indonesia OnePlus is BM(BlackMarket) and there is a new law coming saying that BM phones will be blocked.thus i sold it for a Official Samsung N10+.

    It's been a few weeks now on the Note 10+, so thought I'd give a quick update:

    1. One of the reasons beyond what I mentioned above for switching was the $600 credit for the trade of a Pixel 3.

    Samsung cheated me on that, declined the trade. Long story short, I've paid full price for the Note 10+ (financed interest free for 1 year). So I can return it until Sep 16th if I choose to but I did also get $150 free gear that I do use including a wireless Duo charger that charges both the Note and my Galaxy Watch wirlelessly, and two beautiful Samsung cases for the phone, plus a 10,000 mAH fast charging battery. I would not trust Samsung on any trade-in program. While most folks are fine, I'm far from alone on being declined and their customer service in my view has been very poor.

    2. Overall, I prefer the Note's screen ever so slightly because of how bright it is, particularly in direct sunlight and I do use it in direct sunlight enough, plus the increased size and decreased curvature. I don't find the center punch hole to be distracting.

    3. I do use and really enjoy the S-Pen, and Bluetooth connectivity in general is a lot better, with many more devices working perfectly with the Note than with the OP (e.g. my Airpods work well for making calls with the Note, but not with the OP7). But that's definitely not enough to justify the extra cost.

    4. Being in Cyber Security, I can tell you that Samsung's Knox is way more secure than any other Android phone. On the other hand, Samsung is slow with updates while OP is super quick.

    Overall I would still not recommend this upgrade for the vast majority of folks. We live in a time when you can get an amazing phone in the OnePlus for an incredible price. Just look at the iPhone 11 Pro Mac starting at $1,100 with 64GB storage. What a joke.
