    Apple is going with the edges too I hear. Samsung is selling more edge phones than the flat I believe. I actually like it. Using the S7 edge.

    I think Apple is going to use them for their 2017 version, not this year, from what I've read.

    Thinking of keeping my Note 5 as well. Not sure, but it's a high possibility. Maybe the Note 8 will be better with a flat screen version. I have the 64gb so that with cloud storage and other options, I'm good for a while. Plus have multiple ways to keep it charged. If I decide to keep it, I'll look at cases to make it look new.

    Unless there's another phone that meets my needs. Note 7 doesn't look like it.

    I believe that the new Note will be great its just that my current Note is already great. Can't justify spending the money.

    There's no advantage to keeping the note 5. At all. Whatsoever. I would take any other Note before I chose to take the Note 5. It's a device without any practical long term functions.

    1. No expandable memory
    2. A smaller battery that is non-removable.
    3. 32gb mandatory storage option.

    Two days ago when I was ready to restore my files from a backup after updating to Marshmallow, my computer told me that my phone didn't have enough space for the restore. I have a Note 4 and removed the SD card for the update.

    What would I have been able to do with the note 5? Nothing. Impractical.

    The Note 5 might be fast and pretty, but that's all its got going for it. Rant over

    The only device that would make me skip on the Note 7 is the Note 4 if the 7 isn't doesn't deliver what we're hoping for. I would love for another manufacturer to come out with some type of s-pen function though. Preferably LG.

    Now seeing that the Note 7 will have a mandatory edge screen, I may have to pass on it.

    I explained those 3 above. But again

    1. I have cloud storage that hasn't been that bad. Unlimited data on tmobile allows for me to not worry about it as much and I can visit the websites anytime instead of downloading everything.
    2. Several options and opportunities for recharging. At least on my case.
    3. I got the 64gb. Worth every penny. I've used 32.53GB of storage on my Note 5 (just checked).

    So I have no reason to upgrade, but would like to. Every other part of the note 7 looks great--just the curved screen is an awful decision to me. I think a drop in sales will speak loudly to Samsung and they'll do two variants next year or drop it.

    What happens when you don't have signal? Cloud storage becomes a moot point. I like the cloud, don't get me wrong, but it's not going to be fully accessible 100% of the time.

    As far as battery goes, why stay with a smaller battery. I don't like to have to recharge during the day. I like removing my phone from the charger in the morning and not worry about it. Yes, sometimes I'll have to swap out the battery or find a place to plug it in but the bigger the battery the better.

    The edge design kills my interest in the Note 7. I'm already compromising with a non-removable battery if I were to pick one up.

    I currently own an iPhone 6s plus and also just bought a Galaxy Note 4 which I'm obsessed with right now. I'd really missed android. I decided against the Note 5 for obvious reasons. Need that micro SD. I'll totally be getting Note 7 as long as it's got micro SD slot. Otherwise I'm sticking with this note 4 until the wheels fall off. I'm switching back and forth between my iPhone 6s plus and this. Man I love this note 4!!

    My wife just took delivery of a new-used (can't tell the used part) Note 4, so far I like it a lot. Might pick me up one, it's a monster for under $300 with no gorky curved edge, SD and replaceable battery...what a concept!!

    I can say this, it's enough of a monster even though it's a few years old that if the Note 7 has a curved screen I'll be picking up the 4 before there's a feeding frenzy on them.

    If you've got the cash, get a bunch of them now so when the frenzy starts, you're the supplier. Buy low, sell high.

    Note 7 - no edge crap - the stresses in the screen almost guarantee screen cracking - and Samsung almost certainly will find an "out" to not cover it - and if they can't find a way to make an unbreakable screen, let's give Lifeboat the job - replaceable 4000-6000mAh battery, decent camera (at least 20,000 px), decent light sensitivity, decent contrast ratio (IOW, let's make the camera a camera or take it out of the phone), stock, tested quick charging and a minimum 2TB card slot. (I don't care if they're available yet - give SanDisk a camera it works in and they'll build one.)

    IOW, the best features of the 7 and leave the worst features on the floor. (We don't need another .5cm screen space at the expense of a cracked, unwarrantied screen. And unless you bleed money, "curved" and "cracked" are like ham and eggs.)

    Basically we need a company whose prime purpose is a good GPS phone, not a cheap phone with whoopie-do features that will break in a week but give us nothing but "water-resistant - if you treat it right - and maybe enough space on the "look at it and it leaks" screen for one more letter. For $1,000, yet, unless you want carrier bloat and carrier garbage that you need root (which voids the warranty in the US) to get rid of,.

    I'd be after the 7 like a shot - if it paid to own one.

    I got my Note 4 day one. When I went to play with the Note 5. I decided to stay with my Note 4 instead. I had a 128GB Microsd plus the 32GB on board. I had movies on one SD card and business stuff on the other. The Note 5 did not work for me because of no Microsd. I think you should go to Verizon store and play with it before making your final decision. My Note 4 is still working like an champ. For me and what I do for my work in the IT Field. There is no other phone but a Note phone with a pen and Microsd. Digital signatures, overhead projector, etc... This is why i will get the Note 7.

    I disagree with you with the stress will guarantee screen cracking. Both of my daughters have edge phones 1 has the s6 Edge Plus and the other has the S7 Edge. Both have dropped there phones both has have them since day one no cracked screen no stress cracks.

    Does any one that have S7 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, S6 Edge, or Note 4 Edge that matter ever got any kind of Stress cracks? None of my friends or my daughters have that problem.

    As another user above me has stated, if I was in your position, I would wait to see what Nexus sends out this year before grabbing a flagship device. Nexus is, in my opinion, one of the greatest manufacturers out there for mobile devices. They did a great job with LG/the 5, 5X and Huawei/6P, and I am interested in seeing how they do with HTC (if that is still what's happening).

    I rate the Nexus Marlin and Note 7 neck and neck based on what we know so far with the note having a slight edge.

    It's hard for me to say which phone might make me reconsider my house.

    The Axon 7, next Nexus devices, OnePlus 3 and even the Galaxy S7 edge plus whatever is coming out later in the year will make me interested, but the S Pen is what hooked me onto the Note, and I just don't see that in the other offerings.

    They are all great phones, but ultimately, it's the S Pen that made me really interested in the Note, alongside all the other high-end hardware.

    After using Galaxy S 4G, then rooted and unlocked Note, followed by Note 2, Note 3, Note 4, Note Edge (yes, I upgraded from the 4 after 3 weeks when the Edge launched) to the Note 5. I love the 5 but the Note Edge is by far my fav. Note 7 is said to have both edge screens, but I only want one! One larger edge screen is better than 2 skinnier screens, in my book.

    I will always pick the Note over the iPhone 7 Pro any day. Who wants to pay $99 for a pencil. Sources are saying that there will not be a iPhone 7 release this year anyway. There is going to be another iPhone 6 release. By the way if you ask the source is @evleaks.

    LG is the only company that still has ir blaster so if a 5.5 - 5.7 inch LG comes out soon it could sway me. It would need to be built better than G5 though. Modularity is a big minus as far as I'm concerned so I hope LG doesn't put it in all their new lights.

    Sorry but leeco and other Chinese manufacturers still have ir blasters as I have the Letv le2 pro which came out on June 15 the of this year.
