    Yeah, the iPhone does have a loyal fanbase as well, but the Note also has its own set of fans.

    I don't think those who are accustomed to a Galaxy Note will want to jump ship to an iPhone out of the blue, unless they are bored and want to try something different. Same goes for those accustomed to an iPhone.
    I wouldn't say Apple fans are particularly loyal to Apple. They are like Toyota Corolla buyers - they don't know that there are better alternatives out there and they don't care. They just want something simple.

    As long as they have an adaptor for third party headphones they won't care and they will probably include a set of stock headphones like they do now which is what most people use anyway.
    Leaked photos say that will will include wireless earphones called "airpods", but not wired, and will also include an adapter.
    I find it crazy though because it seems like another way for Apple to "force" consumers to use their products.
    I'm not sure how big the adapter is, but if one was to lose it, that be another expense, which would probably be an unreasonable price because its Apple
    And unless you get wireless headphones, consumers would have to buy lightning cable headphones, which there aren't many out and only iPhone compatible

    I'm sure wireless headphones will become the new norm soon, but I still think its dumb they removed it in the first place

    I doubt it. Audiophiles won't use wireless headphones.

    This is so true. Some of my friends are Apple users and they don't know about or care about Android devices. They don't care, and only read about and look forward to, next year's iPhone.

    They have no interest in my S7 Edge, until it's time to take pictures lol

    I mentioned elsewhere it will be something people will transition to going wireless and the 3.5" will go the route of the cassette.

    If eliminating the jack really does open it up for true stereo speakers and the sound quality improves, others will have to follow and if Apple sells 50-60 million iPhones 7 by end of year, I wouldn't be surprised if they are gone on the Galaxy S8/Note.

    As long as they have an adaptor for third party headphones they won't care and they will probably include a set of stock headphones like they do now which is what most people use anyway.

    Apple just makes the same crap every year. Guess what Pokemon go crash on every iPhone no matter the version. It sucks! There is no customization, no hey look mine is different than yours. It's made for people that don't know how to use a real phone. It's simplistic and dull. Yep I switched to the N3 and never looked back.

    Yeah, I always wondered about that myself. What do accessories manufacturers do here? Do they stick with 3.5mm jacks and stuff a bunch of adapters in the box? Or do they break off and make multiple connection types? So we'll have legacy 3.5mm, Lightning AND USB-C...

    Remember that a cable overhaul isn't something that's new to iPhone users. Sure, there will be a period of transition, and things will be a bit of a pain in the butt for a bit, but everyone will adjust. Just like USB-C. With the Note 7 going C, they were amongst the last micro-USB holdouts, I expect the vast majority of phones going forward will come with USB-C ports. Once that happens, accessories follow suit extremely fast.

    It's just that changeovers like this can get pretty rough.

    That's the reason I cant really tolerate having a iphone.....You pretty much get what you get....and if that's all you know that's fine but coming from andriod it won't be a welcomed change....atleast for me.....

    Too soon to know who won 2016. We won't know until Samsung actually puts replacement units into the hands of their customers, and the iPhone release. The real question is if Samsung will be able to retain their new customers (mainly the people who came over from iPhone).

    It's happened to every phone on the market... has happened for years. These batteries are technological miracles, but they've always had a wicked temper... the chemistry that allows them to store ALLLLL that energy is about as ornery as a bull moose during rut.

    You know... for a short time, I am sure we'll see news reports when any phones go pop... hopefully they play it fair and not just pick the sensationalistic route and only mention when a Sammy goes (yeah, I'm not holding my breath for that to happen). Then the inevitable "Is your phone safe?" special news segment on your local news.

    Then some new shiny news story will catch everyone's attention.

    Coming from an iPhone 6s+, I can say that I have enjoyed the flexibility that I have had with the Note 7. Again, as a new person to Android and the Note series I am still curious what iPhone will reveal with the 7 Plus (since that's their top of the line).

    I do enjoy the Note 7, and ill give them the WIN this year despite the recall - I am just going to stay hopeful that Samsung definitely makes this right when I receive my new replacement.

    There was an article this morning on MSN.com talking about how iPhone sales have been shrinking as the improvements/upgrades from one year to the next have become minimal and buyers aren't seeing the value in it and skipping a year. Obviously we won't know until the end of the year to see if their predictions are correct buy I wouldn't be surprised. I'm surprised about the rumor of removing the headphone jack, that's just one more thing a user has to remember to charge... like we don't have enough things to charge as it is.

    I would say it's the exact opposite. Apple diehards are the embodiment of being loyal to a brand.

    Look no further than Apple tattoos. People have them. A lot of people. I could be wrong...but I've yet to see one Samsung tattoo

    Apple does not release innovative phones anymore.
    Says you. Another person said it and it rings true, Apple will beat out the Samsung Note 7 once the iPhone 7 hits the market. It happens every year. You may not like Apple but watch and see. And this Note 7 mess surely doesn't help.

    I've seen more Android robot tattoos compared to Apple.

    The vast majority of iPhone users are the most casual of phone owners. I know plenty of iPhone owners and not a single one of them is a power user. They tend to buy iPhones for their simplicity or because of reasons like they want access to their iTunes.

    But Note 7 is not the only flagship Samsung is making against iPhone. Thing is iPhone sales since 6s release has been constant downward slide for about year now. And it was overtaken by S7 for the first half of year.

    Right, that stat is for US market. But iPhone's market share is typically highest in the US than any other region.

    The iPhone is late to the party. The party is almost over, and they are just arriving. The iPhone 7 is obsolete and it isn't even released yet! Get an Android, even if it isn't a Note 7.

    I don't know. I'm seriously considering an iPhone 7, even though I LOVE the Note 7. I miss that vast ecosystem.

    Having said that, the way Sammy has dealt with the battery recall had made me even more of a fan.

    Wait, I thought a few days ago, you mentioned you didn't like it as much due to its technical issues at launch? Change of heart?

    And yeah, I'm actually tempted by the next iPhone. Amazing how even a minor exterior upgrade but serious internal change can excite the geeks in us.

    Think iPhone"s home button will be changed to a capacitive one with haptic feedback. I want that too, hate physical button lol

    Initially yes, I was very put off by the Note's seemingly endless issues, and I still don't think I would purchase one. But I love how Samsung has handled themselves through it and, of course it's a gorgeous device.

    I also have issues with Apple. But I've been hanging out with my friend's iPhone 6s plus and found myself really impressed with battery life and just simple and smooth performance. Also, I REALLY miss that app store.
