    For the people talking Bout iPhone battery life I can't til Apple does a quad HD display and then we can truly see the battery life comparison...Iphone only has to render in 1080p meanwhile note 7 is at quad HD.. And especially the iPhone 7 smaller model.. Only 720p? Even the smaller s7 is quad HD....

    Does it really matter? When you're out away from a charger and your phone dies will you be happy you had a QHD display or will you turn down the display and enable battery saving and lower the screen to FHD or HD? I mean really the only thing I've ever noticed on QHD displays on phones is the colors look a little deeper. If you're not into VR it's not that big of an issue.

    I think this fiasco will affect the S8 also. Once the S8 is revealed and even if it has rave reviews like the Note 7, I doubt very much there will be record preorders like the Note 7. People understandably will hold off and wait for physical sales to see real world reviews plus wait and see if there are any inherent major issues.

    I just consider the situation with my own wife who is an iPhone user. She is not rushing out for the iPhone 7 because she uses audio a lot, and has a wait and see approach. How much more will someone wait and see when the previous model suffered a major, embarrassing and potentially life threatening recall.
    I agree. This was the first pre order I ever did and will be the last. I should have held off about a month before deciding. When the S8 comes out I will wait about a month. Other poster mentioned edge will be the standard screen which is now fine by me. I should have been more clear I mean size wise I won't go back to the standard sized S screen anymore so it's either the S8 edge, or edge plus if they rebrand them or the Note. Texting is so much easier on the S7 edge and the Note than the smaller S7. If the Edge comes out in Feb, then sometime in March or early April I will go and buy one if it has good reviews.

    No. The lag and signal strength are just too big of issues for me to return.

    I will wait for my new note 7..
    No BORING Iphone for me!.
    Never understood what is boring? Is it a game to move around your icons and widgets all day? I don't understand what's boring. On my note I organized my apps into folders. On my iphone I organize apps into folders. Should I be doing that every day so as not to become bored?

    My SOT was almost 6 hours. That's pretty good to me. The IP7+ can't be that much better...can it?
    In battery tests one of the reviewers looped a video playing over wifi on the 7 plus and got 14 hours on it. I'd say that's pretty damn good SOT!

    If you're talking specifically about a Note device, plenty.

    Matters to me... I rather look at a 1080p screen when I get to 15% then look at a 1080p screen all day

    For the rest of us, a green icon is fine, especially if they want to replace these phones in a timely matter.

    I'm doubting that green icon thing. To use Google Play under license, the phone has to ship with all white icons in the status bar.

    I know two different people with a replacement Note 7. One of them works here. The box has the stickers, but the icon is normal.

    Adjust the Note 7 display resolution to 1080p, limit background tasks like iPhone and brightness to match- get similar time on the Note 7. The hyperbole for each iPhone release is pure comical.

    Luv my iPad Pro 256gb, so not anti Apple. Just prefer Android for phones.

    Man I hope you're right! I turned mine off today, but would gladly switch back if the correct pricing is in place and no battery icon that's green. Love the N7!

    Going to the V20.
    I might consider it, but probably no preorders until end of month and not available until mid October. The radio reception is apparently phenomenal and a reason it gets very good battery life.

    I will probably come back to the note 7. I loved the phone and it was my first real jump away from apple. On the other hand I have a iPhone 7 plus coming tomorrow so we will see. Hopefully they offer some kind of incentive.

    I need help. The note 7 that I have doesn't get a signal in places close to my home. All other family members phones get good signal while mine says no network connection. And in the last few days I haven't been getting my calls. I get some but at least 50% just go to vm and then I get vm notification. This is radio signal strength problems. Should I just get the replacement note 7 (I love it but need to be able to get all my calls and use the call AND data features when I'm out) or go ahead and get the iPhone 7 and try again with the next note. I jumped from an iPhone 6s+ to the note 7 because I want the freedom of android and have owned every other note and loved them (switched to apple for family and regretted it) but I'm scared this phone just isn't ready. I have an apple watch so it would be nice to have that too. I just don't know what to do. I'm really thinking stay with note 7 but not getting signal is worrying me.
    Turn off advanced HD calling and see if that helps. I live just at the edge of the closest cell towers reach. With advanced calling on I get dropped calls and missed calls. Once I changed that setting, all calls are solid again.

    I don't know what GS7e that you all that say is snappier have. I have had the GS7e since it came out and I'm using it again since I turned my Note 7 off - and there is no way the Note 7 is "laggier" than the GS7e. For starters, if you come close to maxing out the available storage - you will be laggard hell. At least the Note 7 pushes it to 64GB storage. In any case, while the GS7e is good, my GS7e sure doesn't sound like the GS7e that some of you are talking about.

    I also totally understand people who leave the Note 7 for another Android phone, but for people who moved to a completely different OS - it makes me wonder a bit. This is a Samsung Note 7 issue, not an Android issue - and to completely move ecosystems because of a defect in a model of a phone? One of the reasons why I love the Note 7 or any other Android phone is because of Android. I have a second line which is an iPhone 6 (and admittedly will be a 7 plus in the future), but in no way can I possibly have iOS as my primary phone. If I gave up on the Note 7, it would have been for another Android phone. I just don't understand how a defect model would scare people away from the Android ecosystem.

    Well, your particular Note 7 may have been okay, but if you peruse these forums, many users have experienced lag and stutter. Good individual Note 7 units run very well, but there is no consistency over the Note 7 line as a whole. If you get one, you don't know if you are getting a good one or not.

    This is why some are suggesting the S7 as it doesn't seem to differ the inconsistencies the Note 7 does.

    Fair enough.. My GS7e isn't laggy nor was my Note 7 and I guess I more or less attributed it to the software that people installed that may have made it laggy (which has happened to me). Since I install so many apps, I use almost all my storage on my GS7e and now it's understandably become laggy. I'm my own worse enemy, but I guess that is why the Note 7 with it's larger storage was a God send to me.

    I ordered their phone 7 plus a few days ago, should be there early October. Note 7 is a great device but battery life is not so good and most of the power user features like the S Pen I really don't use

    That's excellent I'll be lucky to get 5 hours out of this note 7 and around 15% the phone just dies. And let's not speak about lag... The note 7 is a pretty large device, the s7 edge to me personally in the battery life and lag department is way better

    There is no other phone that compares to it still. Not even that lame attempt called a Iphone 7. Hopefully replacing mine this weekend at BB. Will take any color in stock at this point. The LG V20 is nice but it lost me at no water resistance and the screen just isn't as good.

    I was on the verge of getting a Note 5, having turned in the Note 7 and gone back to my failing Lg G3
    but I totally want the Note 7 back. I would love to get the blue one back but at this point, I'd settle for just getting a new one in my hands.
