    If Apple would get rid of headphone jack(which is like 99% confirmed), I see a lot of people turning away from them. It's been an industry standard since 70's and you can't just force everyone to switch to YOUR standard. If they will implement USB-C, than, at least I could see some continuity with industry and future-proofing. I've got too many good headphones to just abandon them. And I don't want to carry any adaptors around.

    I use an iPad and a Note.

    I'd say that's a good working combo, especially since my Note has been shaping up to be quite the workhorse.
    Same here. Love my Note 7/iPad Pro combo.

    Perhaps not everyone, but Apple has tremendous influence over people's choices, the media, and public opinion. They were among the first to denounce FLASH and not use it, and now just about everyone has moved away. They never used Micro USB or any other industry standard for charging. Few if any of their software products work outside of Apple devices, etc.

    Apple can, as has, forced folks to switch to their standard. I think it is silly, and borderline ridiculous to remove the 3.5mm jack. But Apple can change many things through sheer force of will with their influence. I would be surprised (but happy) if other manufacturers didn't follow Apple with this ...

    p.s. Add me to the list of Note 7 / iPad Pro users

    My daughters birthday was today... got her a pair of Beats Solo 2 wireless headsets. I run 12-20 miles a week and if I use headphones they're bluetooth. Prices going down too... $200 for the Beats is not bad. < $100 for sports ones for running. Wireless is the way to go. This is just the beginning so not immediate. But it's going the way of the cassette.

    I use apple for work, but Android for personal. I would go nuts if I had to use Apple all the time. The new iPhone doesn't look like it's going to be all that impressive, but I think next year it sounds like there might be some innovation coming from Apple, we will see. Either way, I will never get myself locked into that ecosystem again

    From what I have heard through the rumor mill, Apple may come out with a very good smartphone next year. But, at this time I'm not really interested. I'm really into this N7.

    Looks like we'll know what Apple has planed on September 7th. They just announced their media event for that day.

    I have gotten better with it. I only had 4 phones this year which is amazing for me. I do honestly believe that the Note 7 will be my last smartphone in 2016 until it's time for me to upgrade this time next year.

    I had a short stint with the iPhone in between using my Note 5. It was definitely my go to smartphone for most of this year. The Note 7 has everything I wanted in a smartphone this year.

    I'm still in disbelief you went back to Android. Last time I read your thread in the note 5 forum you had started using your iPhone again . Lol

    This thread caught my eye. I have the iPhone 6s plus and previous to that had the Samsung Note series. I was driven to Apple because of the Apple watch but, after Apple confirmed that the iPhone 7 will not have any drastic changes to it, I am sort of disappointed. I also heard that the overall design of the Apple watch will not change either with the new version which is a let down. I really like the dial on the S2 and the intuitiveness along with the display. I keep fighting the jump but, have a feeling that one day when I am driving home, I am going to pull the trigger and move back to Samsung. Sadly the Apple Watch does not work with Android so, I am going to have to sell both.

    On the flipside, I have more options with the Smartwatches so, that is a plus.

    Around March. I went back to the Note 5 because I missed my Samsung. I missed my s-pen and I missed Samsung Pay. I really missed the screen too.

    Yeah the spen has me in trouble. I've been using the spen since the first Note. I'm seriously hooked on it.

    You couldn't have explained it better.

    Apple is just making same things, little here and there. But this time Samsung has done an amazing job.
