    So I wake up this morning to this wonderful email:
    are you leaving the Note 7? if so, where are you going?-samsung-email.jpg

    Yeah, Dear No Name, how appropriate. The clueless company that never got my name to register in their database.

    "Power down your Note7 and exchange it now"? For another note Note 7....uh no, not available yet. And all the carriers are not providing loaners at all, even though Samsung wants to now provide one of their other models as a loaner. What an absolute sh*tshow. Like I mentioned in another post, it took me 30 minutes at my t-mo store to get my refund processed and they hosed me out of the $20 I originally paid for the pleasure of putting in the order at the store. After I yelled at them they agreed to credit my next bill $20. Should have never even been a discussion point.

    I've gotta say, even though I don't like the apple products I have owned (ipads) and would never buy an iphone, I feel like Apple would have somehow handled this situation more quickly and effectively (and consistently) even through the carrier stores. This was my first Samsung since the Galaxy S3, having owned the Nexus 5 and 6p since then, and this experience has soured me on pretty much ever going back to Samsung. So so SO glad I didn't sell the 6p. I'll wait to see what the new Pixel phones will bring next month, and if I don't like them then I'll just wait until next spring for the next wave of phones....from everybody else except Samsung.

    I agree with this article - the recall has been a disaster:
    Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 Recall Is a Nightmare So Far

    I can't believe the fear mongering on this site and the news. Samsung tried to do the right thing and they're taking major heat for it. Apple probably wouldn't have even recalled iPhones if this happened to them. I'm sticking with my Note 7 until replacements are available. You guys are acting like they're spontaneously combusting or something. I can't afford to give up my phone since I sold my backups, and only wanna go through set up when I have an updated Note 7 in hand. In the meantime, I use common sense and don't charge overnight or when I can't monitor the phone. The internet has made people so freakin dramatic. Some of you should stop going outdoors because you'll likely be struck by lighting. The odds are higher than your Note 7 blowing up.
    I didn't pay $700+ for chance to walk outside and get hit by lightning. The issue isn't just the minute safety risk associated with the Note 7. The issue is the inertia built in to the way that both big government and big corporations respond to crises, whether real or manufactured. By the time that Samsung, the carriers and various governments get this battleship turned around, the crew will all be drowned.

    Returned my note 7 and pre-ordered a new iphone. There just wasn't any other android phones that were appealing. They all had some sort of an issue that I couldn't get past.

    Actually your odds are 1 in 1,042,000 to get struck by lightning and 1 in 67,567 to have your Note 7 catch fire.

    Just sayin.

    Had the coral blue.. loved it..besides the battery life... couldve been better... switching to matte black iphone 7 plus.. just because i can . Thanks recall... and if i dont like the iphone 7 plus i can return that within 14 days to go back to note 7... #firstworldproblems
    You won't be able to "go back to note 7" because those who have Note7s now will get the new ones first. The Note7 won't be on sale for the general public until October, past your 14 day return period.

    I'm sticking with Samsung . Every day my notes faster, I've had not one problem. I also bought mine outright. Once you've used the 7 and all its features it's impossible to be content with anything else. If Would be like going yrs back in time.

    I tried yesterday to use my 6 plus thinking it wouldnt be that bad. Man was I wrong. Sure its stable but for those of us who like to have a personality and tinker with our gadgets its very depressing. Even running ios 10 it is so restrictive.

    Your primary buying factor is the resale value??

    After posting several times that I plan on keeping my Note 7, I'm actually beginning to have second thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I still think the Note 7 is the best phone on the market today, despite the iPhone 7 marketing team making people believe otherwise. However, I started to think about resale value when it's time to sale the Note 7. I most always sell my smartphones on eBay or Craigslist to help pay for a new phone, and now with the battery issues, I think this will greatly affect the resale value. Unless there is something that identifies the replacement Note 7 as one without the battery issue, how do you prove to a potential buyer that the phone you are selling is not a phone with a battery issue?

    I don't know, but I am having second thoughts about sticking with the beautiful Note 7.

    Gment and efficiency/speed are oxymoronic. Samsung needs more lobbyists like Apple

    Sadly I think this note 7 Fiasco is really helping Apple's sales(of course they don't need it), but in my opinion the 7 plus will out sale the 6 and 6s plus. I work for a phone retailer and the 7 plus was all everyone was looking to order. Of course curious I asked a few what's the interest and they stated because the note 7 wasn't available. Also had a few that decided to wait on the note 7 since the jet black is back ordered until Nov. It can go either way but there's no denying that this issue is helping Apple capitalize in even more sales.
    If the iPhone had a 3.5 jack, no iTunes, sd slot, less restrictive OS, amoled 5.7", Gear VR, allowed emulators, drag and drop, Flash, etc I might consider it too

    after watching a lot of note 7 reviews I kinda decided another note was in my future but now after this mess who knows when this gets straightened out? Idk if I can wait another month or more to retire my note 4, the edge phone doesn't really appeal to me but not completely ruled it out yet or the regular s7...and for the first time EVER im considering an iphone, the 7plus

    I don't know a ton about the Edge but is it still a premium current phone, or for the little price difference with the Edge should I stick it out and swap for Note 7? Would I disappointed going from an Note 7 to an Edge?

    Iphone is backordered for 3 weeks I just noticed at least. Would it be wise to see by then if the Note is back out or price drop with edge?

    You might head over to IMORE and ask or Apple support.

    Same hardware aside from the curved screen and the s pen. But my note actually lagged and ran slower. Therefore I just returned it and opted to not get another one. No other Android phone at the moment really appeals to me. So I ended up using my Nexus 5x for now and have an iPhone 7 plus on the way.

    I like both platforms for their own respective reasons. I've gone the longest on an iPhone before buying another phone because it just worked. But then I get the bug and move. I like that I can install a VPN on Android, download something and play it. Can't really do that on an iPhone.

    We'll see. I might be back on Android before the year is over.

    Yep i can't stand IOS

    Note 7 taking wayy too much fire(pon intend and i think the sales will be quite low compared to what it should be, after the recall Samsung need to make sure we can easily verfity what phones have the new battery, and to put some compensasion as well as lowering the price.

    In my area all the people that wanted Note 7, but the S7E and never looked back, they say that they will pass the note 7 even after the recall.

    My dad talked me out of ordering the back ordered Iphone saying I'd be mad with it like I was 6 years ago when I had it. Do you see a run on S7 Edges in a couple weeks if this isn't sorted out by then? With Tmobile at worse if the store near me is out of it is I can just order it and it usually ships overnight. I have an S7 which I hate but at least I have a device I can use. I'm glad I didn't sell it so the situation isn't dire. Do you think this will be sorted out soon? I see conflicting reports.

    My other option is return the Note 7 if it isn't sorted out and get an Edge. Then after a month or so next year when the Edge is out trade the S7 or the Edge in towards the new edge.

    Weird! Did they have a specific marketing plan for your demographic area? And how do you know all the people have the S7e?, A poll was recently taken in your area recently or do you just live in a very small town, know everyone in your area and the phones they own?

    I had the S7, traded it in for the Note. I would have been happy sticking with that. Why do you hate it? Because the Edge is just a bigger S7. Ask yourself what you really want out of your phone... What you want it to do etc.

    Will there be a run on Edges? I don't think so. It's already been on the market for a bit. Some people will see it as an older phone already. Funny since the Note is using basically the same internals.

    Hold out with the S7 if you still have it. Wait a few months. Nexus, or Pixel, phones will be here soon too.
