    I went temporarily to the iPhone 7 Plus while waiting for the Note 7 to go back on sale. While the processor in the 7 Plus is a monster, there is just something about the Note 7 / S-Pen / Display / Feel in hand that the iPhone just can't match!

    I'm good with being one of the 18%. This phone rules. Great to be back on Samsung.

    You aren't alone around here. I would bet a good number of the 18 percent are on this forum.

    Had the lack of communication stretched out from the 2 weeks we were in limbo to a month I would have switched. Very happy with the solution though.

    I prefer the better pictures/vids and the higher water resistance of the Note to the iphone. Not a Samsung enthusiast necessarily, just want the best on the market for my money. I'm glad I have that despite being inconvenienced for a few weeks because of a defective battery.

    This is not true. Already half of the notes in the us have been replaced and most note users stick to the note.

    Survey monkey is user by a lot of users, my company uses them at times, and we're a fortune 50 company.

    The issue with this survey is how they got their sample (self selection with no controls), not survey monkey or the sample size.

    All of the customers that came in over the two days I spent at Best Buy exchanging my Notes wanted exchanges. Best Buy and the carriers do not care what phone you buy. It is their job to sell you something. If you are on the fence then they will point you towards what they think you will buy. Just refunding your money on a defective phone is not in their best interest. Pre-ordering a replacement phone was a good move on their part. No need to order excess inventory on a phone people may not want to buy, Still I have friends waiting to get their first Note. What makes the new 7 a worse phone than Notes 1-5?

    We are the minority. The majority of people just don't care much about this ...

    The Note 7 is pretty much dead. It won't recover from this, and that's a big short term loss for Samsung. Going forward though, the healing time I believe will be between now and the company's next smartphone launch lol
    yes, the majority of the people won't even remember this in a month or 2, certainly by the holidays. The Note 7 will sell fine, as soon as they stop announcing it on airlines. Memories are very short. With the election and the holidays coming up, only us nerds are gonna be talking about this.

    Normal customers are gonna walk in a store and buy the phone that looks the best with the best screen (like they do a lot), which is the Note 7 now. In Verizon stores, they already are ...

    This is journalistic malpractice by USA Today. USA Today cites a survey comprised of only 507 people? Total BS.

    I went to best buy and I was there in line for about an hour there was more people returning for exchanges for other phones or getting their money back then getting note 7s. I asked the sales rep how many people are keeping note 7s and just exchanging he said about half, I then asked how many people are moving to iphones he said very little, android people and iPhone people are different, most of the people switching to iphones are females and non techies but for the most part there's not alot of note 7 to iphone exchanges. I told him I'm returning and waiting for the next best thing from Samsung I'm going to fall back on a note 5 he said there's been a lot of people asking for refurbished S7 S7 edges and note 5s because they are half the cost of the note 7 and some people don't see a big difference and are tired of the note 7 debacle. So on the whole its looking 5050 at best buy

    Is that like having a predisposed agenda and then *selecting* the questions to align with your desired result? Or as I firmly believe, most surveys (Statistics are mathematically correct B.S.) are FUD dispensers to sway the opinion of the undecided/ill-informed?..........

    Samsung's own numbers are similar at 90%.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users opt for iPhones, cash: survey

    Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users opt for iPhones, cash: survey
    People just don't want to wait till the new note 7 devices are available. Although it's available in T-Mobile stores as I have read. I feel only few models have serious battery problems rest 26 of the cases were a hoax. After investigation it was found that people were simply blaming Samsung for the Note 7 battery. Nice way to make some money.
    This unfortunately does not surprise me. It's really only Samsung/Note enthusiasts that will hang on. All other non committed phone users will just look for something else. As I said before, the battery issue wouldn't stop me from getting a note 7. I personally wouldn't get one because of mixed reports of lag and signal reception.

    What does that mean? 91% are keeping the bad Note 7s, or 91% are returning and getting new Note 7s. Or the total of both? (i.e. only 9 % exchanged for a new phone, and we dont' knwo how many got new green ones :-)

    I was going to go back to the Note 7 but since it is impossible to get a replacement from Verizon I say the heck with it.
    And it's people like you with this understandable perspective that heightens the profound missed opportunity by LG with no V20 until a month from now.

    Right. Everything is slanted against Samsung right now because it makes for a more dramatic arc.
