    I guess Samsung will be under some pressure now to provide a lower price on their Note 7 devices in Canada with the pricing of the new iPhone 128GB either being cheaper or $80 more. People will be less likely wanting a Note 7 now.

    It's a good thing I held off buying my Note 7 (upgrading from my Note 5). I just don't know if I could live with a an iPhone but may have to in order to save a few dollars.

    $80 is not going to decide a $850+ purchase.

    If you like iOS you will get an iPhone. If you don't, you will get something else.

    Why are you guys trying to pretend the decision between iPhone and others is boiling down to hardware?

    I think Samsung will remain firm on their current pricing of the Note 7 and adjust pricing according to mid-year sales figures. A price drop almost immediately after release would indicate that Samsung agrees that it was overpriced to begin with.

    Not to mention, they'd be refunding customers (carriers then consumers) of all the initial sales and pre-orders.

    When it comes to storage capacity on the iPhone 7/7 Plus, you either get 32, 64, or 128 but never more than that. With the Note 7, you're getting 64 + whatever you can throw in the micro SD slot.

    iPhones are good for some, not all- personally, I would not live with an iphone unless I was under mitigating and devastating circumstances. I would not opt for different hardware and OS over a 10% difference.

    You're right! Strangely enough, it's now 32, 128 and 256. Why not just 64, 128 and 256. 32 will soon fall the way of 16gb.

    The only pressure Samsung Canada is under in terms of pricing in Canada is the recall. The iPhone 7 aka iPhone 6SE, (It looks the same) is a sooped up iPhone 6s. You can tell the difference between the Note 5 and Note 7, at least I can. Samsung has made some improvements with the Note 7. Apple added 2 shades of black. I'm sorry but iOS is boring. It's like watching paint dry and now you can wash it off, sorta.

    Anyways, the pricing of the iPhone 7 is not going to change Samsung's pricing. Like I said before the pressure would be because of the recall.

    Also, according to Mobile Syrup, on Bell the 32GB iPhone7 Plus will be $549 on contract, 128GB will be $679 on contract......I don't know about you but a 64GB SD card is a lot cheaper than $130.......actually we got a free one with pre-order lol

    No way I would go with iPhone based on pricing.

    I might take a FREE iPhone, but from what I see, Note fans are staying true...for those that wanted the N7, the price was never the issue.

    The Samsung Note 7 doesn't cost $850 CAD, it more like $1099. The iPhone 7 costs $1069 CAD, the iPhone 7plus costs $1178 CAD.

    Double the on-board memory for less or a tiny bit more. Most phone users don't use or know what a MicroSD card is. I know from experiencing working at a Managed Service Provider (MSP) that has clients who have 3000+ users using a max of Android and Apple devices.
