    I mainly wanted a flat screen to use glass protectors and I personally don't see any advantage with the edges except for cool looks. Seeing as the regular s7 was ever so slightly curved anyway I went back to an S7 edge and will try note 7 though I admit I am disappointed its not flat HOWEVER if they made it "flat" it would have been ever so slightly curved like the regular s7 and therefore needing regular screen protectors anyway , that being said I'd rather have "full" edges if I gotta deal with the plastic protectors anyway lol.

    The only reason I have Jump on Demand on a secondary line is to try as many flagship phones every year so I'll definitely give the Note 7 a spin.

    You have this right. The regular S7 with it's "Flat" screen is just as bad as the S7 edge when it comes to tempered glass screen protectors.
    I have both and have to use crappy film protectors on both phones. Samsung's flat is not really flat in reality.

    Yea it seems the Edge line it's either you love it or hate it. I've seen a number of people return the Edge for the regular S7 because they hate the curved edges and accidentally hitting stuff.
    I've never once accidentally hit something due to the curved screen, but when I always have trouble hitting certain buttons on the curve. A lot of time they don't register.

    The way the Note 7 looks it will be a larger version of the Edge basically with the Spen. I would think a thick case like the new Otterbox Defender or one of the immitation Defenders sold on Amazon would help with the grip too.
    I tried the Defender and Commuter, too thick for the phone. Got a Spigen Ultra Thin case... grip is perfect. Great case for slick, cool looking phone, my Note 5.

    Btw... I read your other post about buying so many phones this past year. Take it as you wish, a suggestion... slow down and keep a phone for a year, maybe two!

    You'll save a lot of money.. But it won't give you a lot to write about.

    YMMV.

    Yep, that sounds like me.

    I also want a bigger screen though. I thought I'd like having a smaller phone to carry around but after awhile I want a bigger phone again. What about an Iphone 7plus? large screen and they seem to stay in style longer but I'm so used to Android and Samsung now.

    What Note features do you miss? I'm guessing the Spen, but what specifically?

    Posted via the *Note 5*
    Mainly the s pen, i jot down lists and save memos on screen. I copy and paste a lot and the s pen makes that easier.

    Also, for work i take a lot of pics or screenshots and i can write a note or circle something on a picture.

    The s7edge is a great phone, but the 5.5 edge screen is just a little too narrow for me for typing with two hands.. i thought i wanted a slightly smaller phone, but im so used to the size of the note all around, and the s pen, ill get one on release day lol.. unless the battery is weak.. the note 5 was a disappointment after the mm update, it didn't make it through a full day anymore.

    Funny... I have a LG G4 and just for kicks I started thinking about switching to the S7 just to have it more pocketable. But I'm sure I will be happier with the note as the small size will become old quick. Anyone else here try out the S7 after having a bigger phone?

    How much did you sell your S7E for if I may ask? I still owe $650 on EIP. So it may not sell it for that much.

    I really like the S7E but just got use to the S-Pen. However, I'm gonna keep the S7E and get rid of my N5.
