    I've been ready for a new phone and never had a Samsung device but the Note 7 really has my attention. After the recent battery issues I've been looking at other phones and the One+3 looks amazing for the price.

    Sides the Note have the ability to wake the screen from tapping or waving in front of it?

    It's nice to see people are loving their new replaced Note 7's. The battery issue did make a big headline but I hope Samsung will pull through this.

    Yeah, the OS must have received fixes. This thing is great.... it's too bad Samsung's image has been destroyed. While waiting in line for my replacement, a BB employee was going off about never buying a Samsung again to a group of people. I don't think the pushback is just. Also, reviews were out for the old model. The lack of sluggishness on this one should be accounted for.

    Yup, I was on line waiting with another gadget nerd talking about how the image of the Note7/Samsung has been destroyed from this mess. You and I will know, ok, its the battery, they acted fast to get it replaced...but the general population will always associate Samsung with the exploding phone. Sucks.

    Im still waiting for my replacement
    Same here.

    The more convenient authorized AT&T retailer near me - Mid-Atlantic Protel hasn't received any yet. They had expected them by the 21st and are just waiting. I am to get a call hopefully today if they arrive, or tomorrow as they definitely expect them this week.

    I was in a similar circumstance. I had my original note 7 for only three days and I turned it in quickly after the recall. Call me overly cautious, but I wasn't going to screw around, no matter how low the odds. So I replaced it with an S7 Edge, which is a good phone, but I just didn't like it as well as the Note 7.
    I received my replacement on Tuesday and like others have said, it feels like it is mine now. I've got it all set up and I now remember why I moved from the iPhone 6s to this phone. I love it. Throw in the fact I bought the VR (which is really cool) and wireless fast charging stand and I'm in business; I've also submitted my request for the 256 SD Card, so it'll be a sweet set up.

    Good post, thanks for starting it.

    LoL. no they won't. Most people don't care or forget about it. Samsung's theme song is "I Will Survive" to the tune of $65,000,000,000.00 in cash reserves ( that's billions of dollars kids )

    He should be fired.. He's there to sell stuff not infuse situations with negative bias... To make people not buy stuff... I wonder how best buy is even still in business.. Horribly ran business... Last time I was there was waiting at customer service like damn near 30 minutes

    I hope so. My original N7 started lagging after one week.
    I'll wait another week to get a new one. Let you guys test it first

    Betting that was perhaps the motive for the lawyers of Jeep Guy, Garage Guy, Front Pocket Guy and the grandma who didn't even have a Note 7.

    Hey, they'll give us money. They have billions! Media eagerly feeds the BS in the process.

    I too did have lag with my 1st Note 7 after about a week of having it.
    Got my replacement Sept 19 at AT&T corporate store. Was the 1st to swap out for the replacement. Got the coral blue, had silver 1st time around. This phone so far is so much better, faster and no lag.

    Yeah the battery on this new note seems better already. I'm getting way less standy drain than I was with the original, even though I restored all the exact same apps from the first one. Definitely happy with the replacement.

    I loved my first silver Note 7 and sadly turned it in for an interim S7Edge. This was a nice phone, but it wasn't my Note and not my dream phone. I got my replacement earlier this week and am just thrilled to have a silver Note 7 dream phone again. This one works great too. I am happy. I think Samsung handled it as best they could. And I think it was pretty fast too. I am happy with Samsung. I think they'll be fine and I can't wait to see what the Note 8 can do! Elly44

    I swear to god I had a new note 7 and they just gave me a bad one.. I'm having the opposite with my phone compared to you guys. My first was lag less and battery superb.
    You may want to call your carrier and get it replaced with another new one. There is no reason why you should be stuck with a bad phone.

    My replacement Note is way more responsive than my original one. I don't want to think it's my imagination but it has been lag free and I've installed most if not all of my previous apps. Fingers crossed that this continues.

    So far things are great with the replacement. What I love is that I was able to tap the back of my old phone with the back of new one and my multitude of Google accounts transferred over in just minutes and signed themselves in along with all my apps, many of them with their full settings in tact. This helped quite a bit with the customization process.

    I do not mind the green battery icon. I thought I would, but it does not bother me. My battery got a little warm (102 degrees) during the update but it has been fine since then. Right now it is at 82 degrees. So far I am real happy.

    Just wanted to ask....

    ....is anyone taking any precautions just in case a battery somehow, someway does ignite in these new replacement devices?? I would hate to wake up with my nightstand on fire.

    I was also in the same situation as the original poster... I never had an iPhone before... but I was ready to try the iPhone 7 Plus before I got my replacement because we all didn't know when it was going to be available again.... once I got my replacement Note... man, what a difference... this phone is a BEAST. The Old Note was laggy, I had problems with the keyboard and messaging app saying "sending" in group messages... but this phone feels faster, no lag. I'm glad I didn't switch.
