    During the N7 battery fiasco, I placed an order for a Jet Black Iphone 7 plus at my local target assuming I would never get one. Well, as luck would have it, they have one for me today. My replacement N7 return policy expires tomorrow and I'm a bit torn on what to do. I am definitely enjoying my N7. Battery is solid, lag and stutter are minimal compared to my original version. I invested in a wireless charger and Gear VR (which I have yet to fully explore). I'll lose on reselling those plus my $35 restock fee.

    I'm a gadget guy so I will probably keep the phone for a bout a year. Like many, all of my friends and family use an iphone so there is some upside to imessage, iPhoto etc. Also, that sweet jet black is calling my name scratches or not.

    Did anyone switch over during the exchange period? If so, how's the experience been? Would you make the change now if given the chance?

    Your choice.... Keep the Note7 and upgrade to a iPhone 8 next year or take the iPhone 7 and upgrade to the Note8 next year. I'm considering to do that when ever I get a new phone again.

    While I could make ios work but it need to be jailbroken to make it better =|... still waiting on the 10.0.x or 10.1 jailbreak....

    I switched from Apple for years and even though I kept my iPad, iPod and Apple Watch I don't see me returning anytime soon, I fell hard for the Note 7 and it just was not the same during the recall when I had to get the 7 Edge. Love the S-Pen for email and the wireless charging which Apple probably won't do till the Anniversary phone. But it is a personal decision for each of us - good luck no matter what you decide

    I'd swap - especially if you're going to upgrade in a year anyway.

    Say what you will, but iphones hold their value significantly better than other phones - meaning you'll get back a good bit more than if you're selling another device.

    I tried a note 5 exactly a year ago- I usually switch phones after a couple of months but I think I used that Note consistently for about 6 months..or until whenever the Edge came out. I couldn't go back to my iPhone screen, it's why I ditched the edge... and went back to the Note 5 (until the 7 came out) I wouldn't go to a smaller screen, and I fell in love with the S pen.

    I would say since you are a 'gadget guy', then give it a try and see how it works. There's no rule that says if you move to iOS you can't move back. I switched during the recall as well and I am really enjoying iOS. I wasn't lucky enough to score a 7 Plus, but the 6S plus works well. Having access to just about all of the Google services makes the switch much easier IMO.

    Whatever you end up doing, I'm sure you will enjoy your choice. They are both amazing devices!

    Cheers

    I wouldn't. I returned my Note 7 and am waiting on either the Pixel XL or the V20.

    I'd go with which ever OS you like the best. I used to be an iPhone guy from the second version up until the 5, I switched because it annoyed me how locked down the OS was and lack of customization and all of my phones were jailbroken as well. The are both great devices so you can't go wrong with either one.

    Seriously.. turn around and resell that thing..... You'll just end up scratching it otherwise... (or putting it in a case and then what's the point...)

    Buy a regular iPhone if you want iOS.

    I would take that jet black iPhone and resell it for a profit and then buy a pixel XL with some of those funds and with the remainder I would wait until the Note 7 refurb deals came out which are probably going to be pretty cheap and buy that one too. Have those two phones instead of one antiquated though good-looking iPhone.

    I would resell the jet black one... Huge profit margin.


    But with regards to the phone itself, I returned the note 7 and don't plan on buying a new one. Really enjoying the iPhone 7 Plus. And this is coming from someone who has used every single note available on Verizon. The last two years, I returned the 6 plus and 6s Plus. This year, I saw no major compelling reason to return the iPhone 7 Plus. Because honestly I don't like where Samsung is going with the curved screen which makes it difficult to use tempered glass screen protector. Then add the telephoto lens on the iPhone 7 Plus... And portrait mode. Wow.

    No phone is perfect by any means... But for me, the iPhone 7 Plus is the best fit at the moment. I can say that I do miss the speed of the Note 7 camera. Nothing touches it.

    All kinds of complaints, or is this another of those rampant unsubstantiated internet forum board rumors that pop up all the time? I have a household of new Verizon iPhone 7 and 7 Pluses with no issues whatsoever when it comes to signal.

    I haven't seen that problem. I have never lost signal in a good area,or any area where my note 7 got a signal for that matter. I don't have my note 7 anymore but I compared speeds from my iPhone 7 Plus and moto z play, and in some instances the iPhone did better,in others the Moto z play play.

    If already vested in the Apple ecosystem, I get why the Plus is the preferred device. Why not? Good device.

    That said, for a true gadget geek or a person non vested in the ecosystem, the Note 7 has things in its favor.

    Better display. Even at same FHD resolution.

    Better camera overall

    No ITunes dependence

    File drag and drop

    Natively delete photos without syncing iTunes

    True OTG support

    More storage capability without cloud.

    7% bigger display in 10% smaller footprint.

    Can be used with one hand without issue. Unless smaller hands.

    Integrated pen function.

    Even battery life is on par if you iPhonetise' the Note 7 (set to FHD and limit background tasks).

    Tons of great emulators

    Tons of custom theme options

    Flash support

    None of the last several features above requiring jailbreak.

    3.5 mm jack

    Tons More codec support

    Gear VR (iPhone Plus 1080p split in two for VR is not too good)

    Not seeing how any gadget person not already vested in Apple not seeing the Note 7 as the better device.

    This is the close to I can come to feigning incredulity
