    Spent an hour at a Verizon store playing with a Coral Blue Note 7 - oh my........good gracious sakes alive

    First things first - the FORM FACTOR is the best of any Samsung device and rivals HTC for "feel in the hand good". The SCREEN is simply amazing - the most highly rated display ever. The Samsung folks managed yet again to tweak the DIMENSIONS of the phone making it a smidge taller and a smidge thinner, and yet being a smidge thicker, it still feels smaller in the hand - much smaller. How a smartphone feels in the hand, and the display, can be and often are are deal killers and the Samsung folks hit the ball out of the park on these two counts.

    The edge features, which I have always resisted - will make for faster functions in many different tasks. The unit I had had the Retina scanner operational - and it did not perform quickly as reported - may have been the demo unit.

    For me (a minority who constantly uses the S - Pen) this is the defining improvement in the Note 7 - it writes like a dream - feels like a fine pen.

    The battery improvement to 3500 mAh is more than adequate with the fast charge technology, not to mention the power saving mode allowing decreases in screen resolution.

    Now - my only concern is - Coral Blue or Black??

    I'm leaning towards the black which is unusual for me as I prefer gold or white phones, but would like to see in person before I decide, not sure is any retailers in the UK have them on display yet, does anybody know?

    Im going w the black. My note5 was white and i got over it pretty quick, im ready for a black note lol.

    I agree that the way the edge display is made it put me at ease about it. The phone just seems awesome.

    Sidenote- i posted a topic after playing w one and it got moved into another thread lol..

    The black is sexy cool. Play with one for half hours during my lunch break. Glad I got that instead of the blue.

    No, they're as bad as everyone else. About $250-$300 less than the going rate.

    Hahaha no they don't. Samsung and I had a huge falling out and I've been a long time Samsung person. They wanted the chance to make things right.

    The phone was one thing, the two other things I required were correcting issues in customer care, which Samsung Plus seems to be accomplishing that. The other was correcting issues in the repair center. That one remains to be seen, but I'm giving them a chance.

    I was ready to leave Samsung and I've been a Samsung customer since at least 1999.

    I also like that no matter how I grabbed the phone or wrapped my hand around the phone I didn't have any trouble interacting with the screen or taking pictures, no false touches from the edge.

    Craigslist if you have the skills to filter and spot the scammers. Pretty easy.

    Or safer route sell thru Swappa.. If your phone is unlocked, good condition with box and accessories, you will get the ongoing price.

    I've had black since my first phone and had decided I'd be open to give another color a chance. That silver was nice too. But black? Sexy beast!

    I sell all mine on Craigslist, meet people at the carrier so they know the phone can be sold.

    Deal in cash only and never do a shipment, even if they offer to pay with PayPal. I only sell local and only cash.

    Yep my first preference is Craigslist as well. Will do swapppa if I can't find a buyer locally. For iPhones or galaxies not that hard to find local buyer.
