    First the people that say a S7E screen is better than the note 7 needs to get their eyes checked I carry a note 7 and a S7e daily ones a work phone the other is a personal phone but I am looking for something to replace the note 7 with a bigger screen, because I have a S7E. The note 7 is only marginally better but it is better. I wish Huawei would release the Mate 9 or the Note 8 in the US then I would try something other than samsung for a change, I have had every note including the original note edge. Im ready to try someting different but I want bigger than 5.7 inch edge screen. If not than another note 7 it is.
    Its already been verified that Samsung used a warmer temp for the display on the note 7 giving it a yellowish hue. Also it was stated that the dpi was lower on the Note 7 in a tech review (Im not sure if I believe that). Ive tested 7 note 7's at this point and there is a difference between the edge, active and note with blacks and color comparisons. Its slight but for those who pay attention to those things its noticeable, sorry.

    Edit: the dpi portion appears to be true. The Note 7 is 518 and the s7 is 577. Maybe that accounts for the lack of deep blacks like the other s7 variants.

    Dont get me wrong, its a beautiful display but the edge is slightly better.

    Hasn't been even a week.
    And the Note already has people wanting to jump ship.
    Wow.

    I'm going to give LG V20 a good hard look. I don't know if the new Moto or One or others offer wired usb c to hdmi audio video out?

    The LG v20 is tempting, with the great sound, great camera and second screen..
    But the back makes it feel heavy and bulky. Definitely not as sleek and beautiful as the Note 7.

    Did Samsung not make the Note 7 the size it is, so people whom want to operate it with one hand can.

    Will it have IR blaster?

    Less DPI because is the same technology just a bigger screen hence less DPI.

    Some of the rumors suggest the V20 will be modular too. YUK!! If so I'm staying far away from it.

    Thank god. I still will most likely stick with a Note 7 but if they don't have replacements and don't extend the deadline I might look into the V20. I'm using my S7 right now and CAN'T stand this tiny arse screen

    I hooked up my droid Maxx 2 back up phone. Hate this thing. Slow and camera is terrible. Trying to decide if I want to wait for the new note 7s or do I want an s7 active. I don't know how long I can stand this droid.

    What about the Iphone 7plus, V20, S7E? All better phones than s7 active IMO.

    I'll see what apple has to offer as well as LG. I wasn't a big fan of the LG v10 though. I don't want an s7e had one.
    I really enjoyed the note 7 though.

    I would prefer a Note 7 if they get them out soon. I do wonder if LG will release the V20 sooner to capitalize on the whole Note 7 debacle before replacements are for sale.

    I'm on the fence, I'm gonna sleep on it for a week. I wanted the Note 7....this may be my opportunity to try out all three colors though. Started out with coral blue, on the black.. Silver here I come!
    Don't do it you'll regret it. Looks gold in a lot of light.

    I'm getting another Note, but I'm interested to see what LG has.

    Especially in seeing if they finally are able to get their QC sorted after that restructuring.

    Just ordered the Oneplus 3 today. The Note 7 is a great phone. However I can't justify paying twice as much when the OP 3 can do pretty much all the same things. Plus the OP3 is super customizable. Good thing this recall happened or I wouldn't have been able to turn in my Note.

    Yeah, you really have to see value in the S Pen, extra features and other advantages the Note has in order to justify the premium.

    It's a great phone, though. Just one that's very expensive.

    It does show how exciting that $400 category has become, though. You can now get a phone that's pretty darn close to a true flagship (obviously with some compromises) for less.

    Problem is the $400 category looks to be increasing their prices. One plus has gotten more expensive every year. Just have to hope the competition down there keeps the prices low, or they start offering more, like a better camera and other bells and whistles.
