    You might want to pick up a budget phone and see what kind of deals Samsung will have on the N7. They'll probably throw in some free gifts to get sales in the next month.

    Well guys I think I'm going to end up going back to the Note 7 on Wednesday, even if I end up having to pay a restocking fee and tax and all that other bull. As much as I want to make myself believe that the S7 Edge is every bit as good as the Note 7, it unfortunately just isn't. I should have just held onto the Note 7 that I had and waited for this to all play out, but I felt like I needed to turn in and exchange, and unfortunately in my case, the option to do the loaner phone wasn't yet available when I exchanged (keep in mind, this was after I received the second email URGING me to power down and turn in.), so hopefully I'll be able to convince T-Mobile to just do a swap out without having to pay money out of pocket, but, I think at this point I'd be willing to part with a little bit of money to go back.

    Anybody else feeling like I am?
    I need GraceUX. I can't do a Samsung phone without it.

    Well talked to T Force and they seemed Adamant that I should be able to a complete swap back to the Note 7. So I'm feeling pretty confident it should go smoothly now.

    And yes, Grace UX has absolutely become a must have. It's basically the reason I don't want to hold onto the Edge.

    My only concern is should we wait 2 more weeks for the Pixel phones to be announced. If by chance they don't have huge bezels like they look so far or they have some great feature not leaked might regret being stuck with the note that is almost certainly going to be hard to resell now. Then again the camera on the note 7 is almost guaranteed to still be better, water resistant, and has samsung pay. Decisions, decisions.

    I think the Note will still have the better camera and water proofing. I've never been impressed by Nexus specs. They've always to seem to be just enough to encourage OEMs to do better. That being said I've never owned on before. I've been close, but I've always found a phone that was better and I'm not really into OS updates. Best phone I ever owned "Android" was the Hauwie Mate 7. You could not kill the battery on the phone and it didn't even get LTE speeds on Tmobile. I forget why I sold it. I do always think about buying it again just to have it. Oh, it was to gold version that had better specs than the normal one.

    I still would never consider a phone that wasn't branded by either Apple or Samsung. As good as any of the other phones look/are, none of it really matters compared to the two big dogs.

    I'm using my husbands old iPhone 6s in the mean time and I am so ready to get my Note back. Granted this phone is way smoother than my note was but the camera is trash. I'm so tired of looking at the same 2008 home screen on the iPhone.

    Looks like the V20 is off the table, since not even releasing apparently until 10/21, which would mean most would not have until first week of November- based on LG's previous device track record.

    I'll be coming back. Picked up a Moto Z Play, and I've been really impressed with it. The screen isn't as nice (1080p), and the camera leaves something (a lot) to be desired, but the battery life I will definitely miss. Currently have a Screen on Time of 4.25 hours, and I've still got 63% left. It's also incredibly smooth; no lag, no stutters, nothing.

    However, it's not my Note. It has no S Pen. The screen is good, but doesn't make you go "Wow." It doesn't feel as good in the hand. You don't look at it and go "Oooooh Shiny" like with the Note.

    I've gone back and forth several times about whether I was going back to the Note or not. In the end, I just love that damn phone.

    Why? I'd have kept it if I wanted a N7 and worked out paying for it after the fact. Unless you're over it for now then I understand.

    No I had returned mine because Samsung was going to make me drive an hour away to one of their stores to return my old one. Plus I wanted to order my next one from Costco as they have better perks and a really good device protection plan. Canada is very limited for device protection plans. I always been iPhone so had apple care. Didn't realize Samsung didn't offer their protection plan for canada

    I'm on the S7 Edge and liking it so far. A couple days after I returned the Note, the revised units were announced I'm not going through the hassle of returning the Edge and then pay restocking fees and go through all the trouble plus the stigma with it too now. A customer at work flew today and said they made an announcement about it.

    I hope the S8 Edge is out a bit earlier this year. No way I'm doing pre ordering again though after this. I bet a lot of Note users will by the S8 Edge. That is how it has been the last two years.

    I think I may do the same. Not 100% yet but I too am really enjoying the s7 edge, despite being a note person at heart.

    What do you like about the s7 edge. I was even checking that out.

    When typing on the screen it's just like using the large screen of the note.

    Myself and others notice that the Edge has a lot less lag to it than the Note 7, at least my Note 7 seemed to not be quite as snappy.

    I wonder if maybe they should just morph the Note in with the Edge and have two flagship phones like Apple does with the 7 and 7 plus.

    I think the Note 7 was a little rushed into production maybe that explains why it doesn't run quite as smooth.

    Regardless the Note is still a top notch device. I hope they go all out with the s8 Edge though to make up for this debacle which I'm sure cost them a lot. I would expect the S8 Edge to have Iris scanner on it. 6gb of ram would be nice too.

    Yes, my note 7 was stuttery out the gate but settled by week 2 and ran smooth from that point. However, the s7 edge has ran smoothly from day 1 and even a bit quicker. As I said before it may be due to the Note 7 having several extra software features but still using the same hardware as the s7/ s7 edge. Nevertheless they both run great and that was just my experience with my two units. Also, some like Grace ui, I personally didn't, while it's more elegant, I found myself annoyed with how it handled quick settings and folders. It seemed counter intuitive having to swipe right to left once inside a folder since I'm use to swiping up and down. And quick settings menu seemed slower and functionality wasn't as easy as it's handled on the s7 edge IMO. I fear Samsung will bring grace ui to the nougat update this fall though.

    Even though the note fits great in hand, I like the form and fit of the s7 edge just a smidgen better. I usually get notes with slim cases but with Samsung doing a great job packing a 5.5 inch screen into such a small body with the s7 edge I got a mophie 3400mah battery pack case and it fits in hand wonderfully despite the added heft and weight. Which also leads me to this, the s7 edge battery has been better then my note 7 (not counting the mophie case), only by maybe 20 min sot but hey it is what it is.

    Also, the s7 edge screens gentler sloping edges makes edge swiping easier and more satisfying (especially with a case on), and by the way in this black color the phone looks great.

    With all that said, I do miss that coral blue color on the note 7, iris scanner, day and night blue light filter, notifications on aod, and spen functions. However, is it worth paying restocking fees, taxes, activation fees, spending 6+ hrs setting up a new phone to my liking for the 4th time since August 19 (exactly 1 month to the day)? I'm not really sure.

    samsung will never make the s line and the note line one device line. From a business standpoint it wouldn't make sense. They are selling a lot of devices and a ton of people buy the s line then move to the note. I personally don't like the s7 edge. I had nothing but problems with it and accidental touch issues. I think the note 7 is the best feeling and looking device to date. I didn't notice that it was any faster or slower than the edge. Both are nice but I think the note is always a little better, at least for me.

    I'd love to have a S8E+ I didn't really need the note just wanted a black phone. I had the S7E.
    And I just found out the Samsung has the S7E Black unlocked. Too late now as I have the IP7+ coming tomorrow.
