    Yup, same here.

    I've never done it before the Note 7; I'm usually the type to spend weeks researching, and the one time I decide to "just do it" it bites me in the ***.
    Same here. I bought the S7 a week after launch. Never again will I pre order. I very nearly pulled the trigger on the 7 plus today but it wouldn't let me pick up in store and I wouldn't get it for almost a month from now.

    I went back to the edge. Got $150 best buy gift card while doing it. I mean besides the S-Pen, there's not a big enough difference to me to say 1 phone is far better than the other. I think they both are very good phones and you can't go wrong with either one. Both serve a specific user. Because of this whole fiasco I was able to get $40 in gift cards, gear fit2, 256GB SD card and $150 best buy gift card to end up with the phone I started with which I consider to be just as good.

    A couple things I noticed in my edge too is I have much better wifi in a corner of my house and cell signal overall in my home. Wifi thing is more noticeable since I use the phone in that area of the house often. Internet would crawl with my Note and I would have to switch wifi off until I left that room. So for me some things are better. But writing on the screen with the S-Pen was crazy cool! But I am over it.
    Did you buy the unlocked version there? What do you think of people who return the Note 7 to their carrier then hop over and buy the unlocked edge? I'm still keeping my Note 7 in the box and hoping in a few days the government gives the green light to let them change them out. It sounds like some Best Buys' already have the phones physically but have to wait to give the go ahead. Someone even posted the pic of the new boxes on this forum.

    I don't want to get burned and return the Note 7 and buy an edge and a day later the Notes are released. I'm trying to hold off as long as possible.

    I prefer to leave now. I've run out of my patience with Samsung. Maybe I will get Pixel (Nexus) instead.

    LOL...people keep saying they're going to this phone or that phone. All being released at least a month away.

    You're going to have to exercise patience either way.

    Took mNote7 back to Verizon today and got a refund, then i went to BestBuy and got a Moto Z Force and a free $200 gift card and the JBL speaker mod.

    It's a real nice phone camera isn't the best out there but that's fine with me, so far it a super fast phone and no lag at all.

    Still not leaving the Note 7. I'm fortunate to have my Note 5 that I've started using again in the interim, but there's several features from the Note 7 I'm missing quite a bit. I'm anxious for Note 7s to be released again for exchange/sale.
    No phone I'm thinking of purchasing mostly because I can't seem to "quit" the sPen functionality. Sure wish I could... Mid-range cost phones have been getting steadily better the last couple of years.

    Hey I'm not knocking the Note. It was a very solid phone for the time I had it. Resale is important to me since my wife has no desire to take it over once I'm done with it (I just gave her my S7E) and that's as big as she's willing to go. If I buy another note before the N8 it will probably be a N4. If you do not care about resale value and they can actually get these phone back in circulation before November then I say be patient, but do turn your current one in. There really is no need to play with fire.

    I am using my Note 5 until the new Note 7's arrive. I returned the Note 7 to T-Mobile today. I wanted to hang on to the Note 7 until the replacement was available but now no one knows when the new Note 7's will be coming out as they now have to be retested.

    Note 5 was a decent device, but the battery life was terrible. myself I've been doing a lot of thinking and I'm going a TMobile store later to give back my note 7 and order the iPhone 7 plus I still have my S7 edge in the house which would which will hold me over. I'll be back with Samsung when the S8 releases next year. Doesn't hurt to try out new things

    Are you new to iOS? Just asking because if you are, there are differences...not saying one is better than the other, just that some functions / abilities are done differently.

    I took my N7 back to AT&T last week and got the S7E until the N7's are available. The phone is not bad, just hate the more pronounced "edge" on the S7E compared to the N7. Plus, it only has 32GB of base storage which I guess is ok, since I have the Samsung 256GB card.

    Every time I pick up or set down the phone I launch an app that I happen to touch that is closest to the edge. Ordered a Tech 21 case for $9 on Amazon yesterday to protect the phone if I decide to swap back and to see if that helps with the edge issues I'm seeing.

    I really liked the N7 and even though I didn't use the SPen a huge amount, I was going to set aside some time and really work on it. I just hope that the US government does not delay the new N7's from being available for months.

    Yep they could even change the name to 7s .

    I might get the Note in the future but waiting for Zenfone 3 deluxe and V20, idk why the zenfone takes years to be available anywhere.

    I want an "A9 Pro" edition with 5000mah battery on that beautiful QHD display.

    I don't have the Note 7, but I've been following the news closely since the recall. If I was in this situation, I'm not sure what I'd do. I suppose I'd switch to another device if the replacement model still made me nervous.

    Hopefully everything works out for Samsung. I think they're doing a good job handling the situation.

    Keeping/using the Note 7 until BB can do direct exchanges for new Note 7. I know enough about the battery process to appreciate the percent is low and gets lower the more the device is used (had mine since launch day). Catastrophic failure gets less likely after initial charges.

    That said, if the CPSC rejects Samsung's post issue batches, probably game over for the Note 7 and consumers. Best device I have owned to date, marred by poor QC. You would think their QC resources would be heavy for the main component related to safety. Oh, and the fact it is a SEALED battery.

    I'm having the same dilemma myself I used to be with apple back in 2013 then I started getting Android phones, the iPhone 7 plus looks very intriguing I'm 50-50 right now I don't know what to do. But I have the same problems myself the battery life on the Note 7 is not really good I haven't once been able to connect this phone to Bluetooth with my car and concerning the lag I've been getting a lot of it.
    I have been an Android user from the first hour. I have switched to Apple 3 years ago with the iPhone 6 and really don't miss Android so much. There are not so many things you can't do on iOS but are available on Android since iOS 9. The things that was bothering me most with Android is inconsistent battery life. One day the battery was okay and the next it drained like hell and I couldn't figure out the reason. With iOS battery is just so realiable.

    They're just putting generic shipping dates on them. People have gotten 2-3 weeks shipping notices and then today it shows already shipped to UPS.

    If CPSC rejects the new replacement Note 7.
    I hope Sammy brings a Billion dollar lawsuit against CPSC.
    We would already have our phones if it wasn't for CPSC.
    There was no way that Samsung could of know that there was a problem with the betteries.


    And you know CPSC is probably gonna try to make some money off being involved.

    I've never done it before the Note 7; I'm usually the type to spend weeks researching, and the one time I decide to "just do it" it bites me in the ***.
    I'm usually an early-adopter. It bit me in the rear with the G4 (I had missed-tap issue, and later on the reboot issue). I waited about a month and a half before getting the S7 flat.

    The Note 7 is (maybe was) on my radar. The curved edges made me think a bit about it, and some unexpected expenses made me wait a bit more.

    I tend to hand off my old devices to my wife or resell my device after about a year. My G4 was too big for my wife, so I resold it. My wife was to inherit my S7, and the Note 7 was most likely a resell.

    The resell thing has me doubting the Note 7 even more now. Reading all the posts and threads about people keeping their current recalled Note 7s makes me think that the market will be full of recalled Note 7s next year. If there end up being reports about resold/used Note 7s still melting down next year due to people keeping them, I think it will impact my ability to sell my potential Note 7 later on for a decent price. I think I would have to keep my phone for a few years to make this investment worth-while, and I have never managed to do that yet.

    I think the resale value on these things will not be very good, especially if the media reports these phones causing problems later on. Samsung might have to discount the Note 7 for me to jump in now. Its sad, as I think a very solid device has been tainted irrevocably.

    I'm a traveller as well, and I would be really annoyed if some overzealous airport/airline employee told me I couldn't use my device. A long flight without my music and videos would be a bummer, even if my device was safe. Again, folks running around with recalled devices and bad batteries that get reported as still melting down long after the recall can spoil this device for the rest of us. Makes me think the rumours of Samsung shutting these devices down remotely is actually an good idea.

    Purely hardware-wise, the iPhone 7s looks like a contender for me now, but I can't head back to IOS. I want a large-screened device that is water-resistant, class-leading camera, great screen, etc. Note 7 seemed like a good fit (the edged screen was my only concern).

    Nope...cause the only reason they would deny the replacement is if something is wrong with them in which case Samsung shouldn't release them anyway........
