    Well, another article did mention that Samsung was the battery supplier for Apple in 2016. Exploding batteries??

    This article says might be a shortage at launch due to some "faulty components."

    The 7+ looks nice. I actually came to the Note 7 from a 6s+ and while the 6s+ has been one of the best devices I've ever used, I miss the more feature-filled Note series. I'm staying with the Note for now, but may look back into iPhones next year. In the meantime, I'm also going to pick up a new iPad. My original iPad Air is really showing its age.

    Just watched the iPhone event and man, that dual lens camera looks wicked on the iPhone 7 Plus, so is the battery life it seems with its smart A10 chip that makes the phone use the 2 slower cores when not doing anything intensive

    I'm tempted to get that piano black finish but the only way to get it is to buy the 128GB. I'm probably going to stay with my note 7.

    Could be. However of course the media smooths it out not to cause alarm for Apple fan boys.

    for a sliver of a finger nail I thought about it, then I thought I have all that and more and my watch already didn't need to be attached at the hip to my phone oh and I can make phone calls with it so now I wait for my beautiful Blue Coral Note. I really do miss the iris scanning if for nothing else but to show people who say oh that won't work

    It's tempting. I've owned a lot of phones to include all the iPhone and notes. I absolutly love the S-pen, I use it every day. The most important feature of a phone to me is the camera. Note 7 is amazing. Best I've owned so far, I did have a bit of lag when shooting at my daughters cheerleaders last night, I even missed a shot or two. If I can straight trade att my note 7 for a 7 plus, it might happen. We will just have to wait and see for the 16th to roll around.

    The iPhone 7 plus will have better audio, probably a better battery life, possibly a better rear camera(s) but we don't know for sure, a faster/ smoother experience, and a higher megapixel front camera, more home button functionality, and 3D touch... The Note 7 has an Iris Scanner, an S pen, a better display with higher resolution, Super-Amoled instead of the outdated LCD, edge display, more efficient phone to screen ratio, USB-C, wireless charging, split screen multitasking, and is open source.

    Both have advantages, but I'm sticking with the Note.

    I'm thinking about it. Sound quality is better on the iPhone. Some apps are too.

    How many of you are going to stick with the Note 7 despite the beefy Iphone 7 Plus? I think I will stick with the Note but the 7 Plus looks to have a lot of interesting stuff. I mean they will have a Defender case out at launch most likely too.

    Even though it has better audio, do you think having the Spen is an advantage over the iphone 7 Plus? It comes out sept 16th around the time when the new Notes arrive.

    Do they usually sell out of Iphones at launch and pre orders if I wanted to exchange that day or would I be better to simply return Note get a refund and order 7 Plus?

    I really would hate to leave Android and have to learn Apple again. I had an Iphone 3g and didn't like it.

    when I took a apps class in college we had to use a Mac computer in the computer lab and I've never really used one before. It took me 5 minutes just to figure how to open and minimize a window. I ended up dropping the class because I wasn't about to buy a stupid mac.
    Not an apple fan. I.prefer Samsung. Been a Samsung customer for many years. Love the Note series and only interested in replacement

    I believe the A10 is a custom built Qualcomm 820 processor.

    Maybe I will give the iPhone a try. Turn in my Note 7 for the iPhone try it for two weeks. If I like it, than I'll keep it. If not,then get the Note 7 again.

    Yuk. With fees and taxes then buying cases and the phone will be over $1000! and no SD card slot and less built in storage than the Note.

    Thought they quoted $769 for the 7+?

    That aside, would think the iphone 8 would be the year to look at iphone if one was going to make the switch next year. Suppose to be the major redesign.

    I agree with you. I remember being able to rock my 6s+ for a day and a half without a charge. If anything, I'm curious to see what the 7s+ will be.

    Did anyone see the "Specs off" between the iPhone 7+ and the Note 7?

    It still looks like the Note 7 takes the win in most areas. [happy about that].

    This has been mentioned before and linked to an article saying 17 REPORTS IN THE U.S.... They are offering a free swap. Why the hesitation????

    Samsung Galaxy Note7 may be recalled over fire risk

    "The voluntary recall followed 17 reports of Galaxy Note7 smartphones catching fire in South Korea, 17 reports from the United States, and one from Taiwan."

    The iPhone 7 price starts at $649 for the 32 GB version (with options up to 256 GB) and the iPhone 7 Plus price starts at $769 for the 32 GB version (again, with models up to 256 GB).
