    Man do I miss my Note 7.

    This phone is nice but the battery over the last 2 days is nothing close to Note 7.

    I am getting approximately 8 hours with same settings.

    Cannot wait to get my replacement Note 7 back.

    But beside the S-pen, is it comparable to the S7 Edge?

    I agree, there are a lot of small advantages that the note has over the s7 edge all of which add up to a substantial net difference. The note is a much better device. I am really looking forward to getting back to the note.

    Maybe it's just me but I like the feeling of the Note 7 in the hand better. The Edge I am using seems to get warmer than the Note did.

    The Edge is is nice device but not quite the same as the Note. Also, apps are a bit larger on the screen which I am not a fan of.

    But the battery is really the bigger difference. I notice a big difference over the 2 plus days I've had it.

    I think the Note 7 just offers a more refined experience.

    And people complained about lag on the Note 7. I NEVER had it but did have and still do have it on this Edge.

    Another annoying thing is that sometimes when I press the home key in the Edge I doesnt even respond. Not sure of its just a possible defect with this particular Edge but it was brand new with new Box and everything.

    Was just thinking... now that we know new N7s will be here next week, and hearing someone in the VZW thread say they saw a list of people at their local store that would be getting their replacement notes first because they had participated in the double-swap program (rewarded because 'they listened' to VZW's instructions, apparently)...

    Maybe it would be in my best interest to go get an S7e for a few days. Might be fun to try it anyways.

    Thoughts?

    Me too. Don't like this phone. Also dust collecting under screen protector. I don't like this curve screen. Note7 isn't overly curved...sweet drvice

    Thanks for that!

    It does sound like the Note 7 is in an entirely different league.
    I have a Note 4 for my business and I REALLY like it but I don't have any other comparison (never had a Samsung before this one).

    My fiancé has the Note 5 and it's an amazing device!

    I was in a large corporate store today and they didn't know anything about the 21st. Even the general manager didn't. I did get put on a list for the exchange and they tried to get me to swap for a loaner.

    I don't like the overall styling of the S7 Edge as compared to the N7. It is more 'childish' in my opinion. I really miss my N7!

    The curve on the back of the N7 makes a huge difference in how it feels in the hands. I can't stand holding my S7E loaner

    The Verizon receipt shows that the N7 was returned and the S7edge was purchased. So being that it's a new purchase, if qualifies for the promo

    Nice. Although if you return the loaner and get N7 again I suppose you can get whatever offer on the N7 then again. I guess it's the least Samsung can do given all the crap and inconvenience this has caused.

    "Comparable" is a relative term. Some will undoubtedly say yes it is. I do not. It's hard to describe, but I simply do not enjoy the S7 Edge, yet I loved my Note 7 and can't wait for the new one. The Note has a better "Always On Display", it has a much better feel in the hand, the Edge screen is better (on the calendar edge screen, I get a full calendar view off to the side on the Note and on the S7 it's just the day's tasks.), the S7 edge doesn't come in the awesome coral blue color, no iris scanner which I thought was no big deal, but man I am surprised at how quickly I adapted to using it and now miss it.

    I understand completely that most of what I've said here is completely subjective, but no, the Note 7 is not just an S7 Edge with S pen. It is far more.

    I was actually having this SAME problem all day yesterday and was going to look it up online to see if it was a common problem, but forgot. My loaner Edge has this same issue and I can't figure out what the deal is. It's not lag, it's like the phone only recognizes the home button half the time.
