    I will be sticking with my note 7. I am not even going to turn it in on the recall. !! phones have blown up and all in Korea.
    You really should turn it in for a replacement.

    I realize that... the article still says 17 reports from the U.S. which is the point because the person I was replying to said she wasnt going to swap because no U.S. reports... 17 U.S. reports.

    It's not may recall. They already recalled it. Like a week ago.

    Well after seeing that Jet Black IP7+ and dual speakers my note is back in the box. It's going back. This will be my 1st IP (well I had one before, but it sucked so I sold it ).

    Anyway I just bought the N7, because it was black and am not a Spen user. I will miss using the Gear S that I bought as I don't like Android wear very much. Maybe the new GS3 will work with apple. No I'm not saying Apple is better I don't give two craps about the OS I just want something that works and show how much $$$ I have.

    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].
    Are you sure? I mean the Iphone is supposed to be innovative. How does the Note 7 beat it in most areas when the Iphone 7 is newer?

    I turned my Note 7 in today. It really sucked. Picked up a Moto G4 Plus to hold me over until they figure out what's going on with the Note 7
    When you turned in the N7 and got the G4 Plus did you pay anything such as tax on the G4? How muchmoney did tou have down on the N7 and how are they crediting it back to you. I was considering going back to the note 5 for a bit since I'd have a credit back that way vs a straight swap out when N7 comes. Not sure..

    I was a new Verizon customer. So I returned the Note 7 and went back to AT&T. Just picked an unlocked G4 Plus and am waiting to see what happens next from Samsung.

    Well damn... Jet black and stereo speakers with an IP67 rating. This is going to be a tough decision. Coming from a 6s+ which, I hate to admit, did feel a bit faster than my Note 7.

    To top it all off, the iPhone 7+ 128GB is cheaper!? (Note 7 AT&T 64GB $879 vs iPhone 7+ 128GB for $869)

    Just be careful with Jet Black. They say it will scratch easily so case it up!

    A Speck clear candy shell would be my choice of case... super clear to show off the jet back and those speck cases are solid!

    I'm curious to see if the refund policy changes on Friday. I'm wondering if Samsung will play hardball with the carrier's forcing them to do exchange only to avoid the Apple changeover.

    Interesting. I'm with Tmobile but they said nothing about their 14 day window to get full refund, just until sept 30th currently to swap out for different phone or refund. Why I was possibly considering V20 or Iphone. Especially if it's not out by Next Fri would the stores have enough 7 pluses to swap out?

    Honestly it sound like the typical rules....I dont think the 14day rule should apply to a recall but thats what AT&T told me....Maybe thats why the 3rd option to refund on the samsung website was removed...

    Well according to AT&T website for the Note 7, it explicitly says "Customers with a Note7 may select a Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7 active, Galaxy Note7 or any other smartphone". That is for the recall. Normally the 14 day window is for any phone that you want to return, not exchanging because of a recall.

    That's what I was thinking..... Hate that depending on who you speak to they tell u something totally different... Technically everyone who received their note 7 is past the 14day period... So are they saying we have no choice but to stay within their family line... I doubt that

    No no no...Samsung clearly says you can return your device and they also say this "If you are unsuccessful in obtaining a remedy from your place of purchase, please contact Samsung for assistance."

    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.
    Though this is subjective, IMO the note also takes the crown for best looking phone! Which it never did before.

    Make sure you read Apples special note about that black iPhone. They say on the page that because of it's highly polished finish that it will show scratches and swirl marks easily and that they recommend using a case if those will bother you.

    EDIT: Just saw the other replies saying the same thing. Sorry

    For me, the BS with the FAA evaluating whether to ban the Note 7 on US flights is the final straw:
    http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...s-faa-yep.html

    I've decided I'm returning mine to the Tmo store tomorrow for a refund, and I think the Samsung wireless charging pad is within the Amazon return window so that will go back too. I am charging up my 6p right now and will swap sim cards tonight. My daughter was going to get the 6p for her birthday in November, but it looks like she may have to settle for a MotoG4+. Unless I like the Nexus/Pixel phones, whenever they get announced.

    Too bad, I **loved** the visibility of the screen on the Note 7, doesn't wash out in sunlight like my 6p, and I thought the no-side-bezels was sexy. A little bit easier to hold in my hand as well, and I was getting used to pressing the physical button to go home from any app. It also took *much* smoother video because of the stabilization. On the negative side, besides the whole recall BS, I did find the camera to occasionally make bad choices in low-light situations (orange hues), the thumb print recognition was still 50/50 - requiring me to lift my thumb up after I press the home button to wake and press again with my thumb to unlock, the iris scanner worked for me like 20% of the time so was useless, and I did notice micro-lag (1-second-ish) when transitioning between many apps. Overall it was a mixed bag, and certainly not enough positives to make me switch out for an S7 edge.

    Peace and love to all the Note 7 faithful fans, but I'm out.

    I'm an iPhone user through & through - but I also have a Note 5 on another carrier. Of all the Samsung phones, I love the Note line.

    That being said, as much as I love the 6s Plus and as good as yesterday's Apple event was...throw in the extremely small, isolated incidents of a few batteries going poof - I'm going to upgrade my 6s Plus to the Note 7.

    Many of my day to day tools are cross platform cloud based (Evernote, Dropbox, IMAP Email, Keep & Share) but the clear advantage for the Note 7 is how I work with those apps vs. iPhone. Even on the Note 5 now, the S Pen and the things it allows me to do on the fly throughout the day (since we live in a digital world) - are so natural now that going to an iPhone would be backwards.

    My iPad Pro (12.9) is still the king of kings for tablets - since I can, just as easily draw, annotate, etc and my Surface Pro 3 is there when need something to talk to the Windows world.

    I guess the message is - there are several really good devices out there, some crossing lines in terms of functionality & others clearly taking the lead in other areas.

    I'm going to iOS! I'm not brand loyal to anyone, they don't have that kind of control over me. I have an Android tablet so that will allow me to enjoy what both systems offer. I was really enjoying my note 7 with the exception of battery life and the lag, not too mention the possibility my device may blow up. I'm not looking forward to iTunes, but nothing is perfect so I'll have to live with it.
