    The only thing that's making me reconsider going back is the 64GB storage. However having the 256GB SD being sent to me I'm thinking it really won't matter. Might just ride out with the S7E until next year.

    I jumped ship to the S7 Edge and I'm happy with it. Bought a stylus that has different tips you can use. Works great. I only use it for DS emulator games anyway. This is a great phone. Very similar to the Note 7. Just no Spen.

    Matters to me... I rather look at a 1080p screen when I get to 15% then look at a 1080p screen all day
    Well, you'll be looking at a black screen after 6 or so hours with the Note. You still have another 6 or 7 hours of 1080p on the iPhone.

    The Quad HD vs retina honestly there's really no differences. Naked eye cant tell...

    I loved the note 7. I didn't have any lag or issues with the phone at all and it felt really good in the hand to me. I had preordered so I wouldn't have to deal with standing around in the store and i loved the blue. But I think I'll be waiting until note 8 to go back. I'm tired of Verizon and all the chaos for now. I got the moto z force and it's fine for a year.

    People say you can't tell but that's be. You can tell that the note has a superior display hands down. The first thing iPhone users notice about galaxies are their nice display. Also with that being said I doubt the 7 plus will have twice the battery life of the note while having stuff run in the background. We'll see once people start getting their devices.

    I just don't understand how a defect model would scare people away from the Android ecosystem.
    Hahaha it didn't scare me away. I'm just trying something different. I'm not in love with Android. I love the Windows OS, but its pretty much dead at this point, the 950 XL really let me down after years of waiting. So I'm going to give IOS a shot and see if I like it better.
    I'll still have my LGV10 to keep up with Android and a Lumia 640 to keep up with Windows.

    Never left. I admit, I was very tempted to go back to iphone. After the text from Verizon last night stating 21 September would be the day to get new phones. I am waiting patiently. I have gone through to much to give up on the note 7. I originally had a bad black note 7 battery (completely dying at 40%). Then when i exchanged it, the store only had silver. I immediately had buyers remorse with silver. So I jumped on my motorcycle to find a black, 45 minute away from me. Found black. Then the recall. It has been one thing after another. Now I will get the coral blue. I just feel the Note 7 is the better overall phone out right now.

    Sticking with my loaner s7e..I loved my note, best phone I've ever had. That being said this 7e is pretty awesome too. I had never used the spen until n7 so I'm not missing it much.
    I'll be an n8 user next time around, but only after its proven itself as a great phone. I've been thru 2 preorder flagship phones and gotten burnt(hahaha) both times. Rotation issues on s6edge and this note7 debacle. Me and my s7e are happy👊

    Ok thats simply false. If you cant tell the difference, there is something seriously wrong with your eyes. And so were clear, Im using an iPhone to type this so if anyone was going to buy what you said it would likely be me.

    In regards to the topic, no I wont be coming back. I loved the Note 7 but Samsung has burned me enough with their phones. As a company they have alot to learn from this mess before I will ever consider buying their phones again.

    I swapped to the S7E and it's a great phone too. However, I'll be swapping back as fast as they let me. I just can't live without the S-pen. Even though this whole ordeal has been a pain, it was still kinda fun to get to try a different phone. All I've had is Notes for the last almost 4 years. The Edge is really nice and if I didn't use the S-pen, I'd be glad to keep it.
    I only wish Sammy would stop dumbing down the sofware for the S-pen. I used the memo's a lot! Yeah, they are there but they aren't the same. I used the reminder on my memo's all the time.
    Anyway... I gotta have my Notes! I'll probably always get the latest and greatest until they stop making them.
    Good news is with the next update to Samsung Note, they are adding Action Memo back in. They (samsung) sent me an email about this as I was in contact with their software people about it.

    I switched to the Moto Z Force last night and so far so good. I didn't realize how much lag my Note7 had until I started using the Moto. I like my the Note7 but I'm not going to miss it.

    I can speak on having the phone since release date battery life is not the best even compare to my S7 Edge it run circles around the Note 7 and concerning Apple ever since the iPhone 6 and 6 plus they always had better battery life than Samsung phones

    Don't get me wrong I'm a huge Samsung fan boy but some people hate to admit the note 7 is a very laggy device.... The note 5 even the note 4 lags less

    Of course Samsung's has a better display no one will go against that but when it comes to smoothness and operating the iPhone definitely takes that

    Exchanging my Note 7 for a new set this sunday. Still my ideal phone.

    And anyway, my country has no option to refund or change to another phone.

    Then you shouldnt have said "you cant tell the differences in displays with the naked eye". I dont see in where I quoted you anything about performance.

    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
    That 14 hours is simply playing a video on wifi with a 1080p display and not actual SOT use. Even the 14 seems a stretch.

    I don't see a difference that's my personal opinion however you feel on that is yours. Performance comment was towards another person

    I'm not. Started out with the Note7 right after they came out, switched it for a 7Edge (AT&T), which I didn't like (fast enough phone, hate the edges).

    Really wanted a Note experience (had a Note3 many moons ago), so I picked up a new Note 4 (less than 1/3 the cost of a Note7) and will return the 7Edge this weekend. I figure the Note4 will be more than sufficient for what I do (it is a personal device, I have an iPhone 6S+ through work). Thought about a Note5 but no replaceable batter and SD card capability.

    The Note4 now has MM via OTA, and I'm not concerned if that is the last major update. Figure I can use a cheaper phone for a year and move to whatever comes next (of course after waiting a while to see what happens with anything new).

    Got burned this time buying a soon-released phone too early, not doing it again for any manufacturer!

    Which opinion do you have though? First you said they look the same, then you said samsungs are better obviously and now your saying they are the same again.

    Everybody uses the phone for different things certain people just go on Facebook and Instagram some watch videos all day so it really depends on how you use the phone but iPhones have a better battery life that's a fact

    I can't decide. I loved the note while I had it, also loved the gear Vr. I did miss iMessage, well i actually missed a ton of group texts between people due to that issue getting off of iMessage. My brother is awful with tech so skyping with my niece vs FaceTime was hard, since he has issues with Skype for some reason. I could live with those two, but the cracking glass has me concerned, especially since I mountain bike a lot with my phone in my pocket, or hike with it in my pocket. Not convinced it will be durable enough. I'm tired of Apple and always loved my android phones, but that durability is concerning to me now. Decisions, decisions.

    I have always said there's pros and cons in both operating systems me myself I'm going to replace my Note 7 with the new one but I also have an iPhone 7 plus coming in the mail in a couple weeks I'm going to compare both devices and eventually stay with one. Me personally I have a feeling I'm going to stay with the iPhone... Battery life and lags kills the note 7
