    Lots of negativity seems to be swirling around the N7. My brother just ordered one and is getting nervous.

    My N7 is fabulous and I have zero problems. I treat it with respect and do not regret my decision one bit to buy it.

    That's usually how it happens. New phone release , and all you hear about are the problems and unhappy consumers. But it's really a small number compared to the people who love their phone and therefore don't post as much. He's got nothing to worry about.

    ^^My thoughts exactly.... Look how many phones have sold versus unhappy customers.... I leave people to their own opinions but I love this thing and plan to have it for awhile

    Every phone launch looks like this from the years of being on the these forums :P. Most come to get issues fixed -- not praise it .

    Exactly and some treat you like you a liar if your phone don't have the same issues as theirs.

    Yes it is like this with every Samsung flagship launch. This also makes it hard to determine when people are actually experiencing a problem.

    I wouldn't worry about anything until you see a problem.

    I think it's so crazy. I have owned nearly every major phone for a brief amount of time to try it out and ALWAYS go back to the iPhone. The Note 7 is the best phone I have every ordered and I'm obsessed.

    You don't remember 'bend-gate'? I also remember an issue dealing with scratches right out of the box during release, one year, for the iPhone. I used to read most of the same stuff on the iPhone forums I frequented. New releases on flagship phones always have groups of complainers and when you read it on a forum you think it's wide spread and they all have the problem you just read about. Flagship phones are the big sellers, meaning more people purchase them. Which also means more people complaining and voicing their problems due to the simple fact that there are more of them out there.

    I second this advice. Less chance of having a problem starting fresh.

    My position exactly (nine year iPhone vet here), but my one week old GN7 is running true and straight, and vastly superior to both my iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus. Since it is all glass (the shame of my iPhone 4), I bought the accidental damage coverage. So I'm going to ride it out despite the paper in the gap test that my GN7 failed (both sides of front).

    PS - after reading Android forums for the last month, while waiting for my GN7, I have found there is almost as much hatred between Samsiung owners and the rest of Android-land as there is between Fandroids and iSheep...

    do you know if there is any way for me to sign up for that accidental coverage now or is it too late?

    Pictures and music should be OK. It's mainly apps, settings and any app or system files you don't want to carry over.

    Just an FYI. The only time I used Smart Switch, I ended up with the media server bug.

    At this point, I wouldn't touch Smart Switch for anything.

    I came from 6s plus as well no regret in the slightest after several failed lifeproof cases an a few trips to Apple store. Sure not as fluid as apple but that..005 tenth of a second lag is not going make a difference to me just having to relearn android again was fun to me an loving being worry free about contact with water.
