    I'm done with the Note 7. I travel frequently for work and if I can't use the phone while I'm flying, that is a big limitation for me. This is also my 2nd Note 7, I did get a replacement unit and it works well, but the uncertainty of the battery issues and not being able to use it on a plane are not things I can justify for a $850 phone.

    I just ordered a Pixel XL and will use my Nexus 6P until I get it.

    Plan on sticking with mine unless another "forced" recall (this one though would likely not have a replacement option- Note 7 probably would be dead).

    Why I luv the Note 7:

    1. Smallest form factor for 5.7" device
    2. Best display
    3. FHD hardware scaling is amazing
    4. No navigation bar wasting 15% of the display (a lot of apps do not support immersive mode- especially games)
    5. Best overall camera- especially depth of field and low light
    6. Runs coolest of any device I have tried for games- including the iPhone Plus when in FHD mode
    7. The pen integration

    No other device IMO touches it. With iPhone

    1. No drag & drop
    2. No true OTG support
    3. Stuck with needing iTunes
    4. Weaker low light photos
    5. No emulators (lots of great ones)
    6. No true theme customization in UI or apps
    7. Display is inferior
    8. Bigger device, smaller display
    9. No sd

    Sorry, but the Note 7 rules and I plan on keeping it.

    I don't even care if they recall it a second time. If that happens I'll keep it until the S8 even if it gets no updates or support. Nothing was wrong with my first N7 and nothing is wrong with my new N7.

    Name another device with screen 5.7" or larger easily available today or within few weeks:
    V20: Same high DPI issue as V10, huge icon and text, unless you have vision issues, misses whole point of larger screen
    6P: Inferior screen, 5.3" due to soft buttons in many situations, only 128GB, basic features

    I'm keeping my replacement.

    Definitely sticking with my Note 7. I've no interest in any other phone on the market unfortunately (including the upcoming LG or Pixel). If... and only if... a second recall is announced (after the investigation of a replaced Note 7 "exploding" on a plane), I'll return it then. At that point, I'll go back to my Note 5 until sometime next year and try not to cry about it

    I'm curious to how many of you are deciding to stick the Note 7 after receiving a replacement. I preordered a iP 7 plus and have had it for about 2 weeks. I'm really underwhelmed with it and decided to trade it in for a Note 7 (before news of replacements having same issues). I've been on a iPhone for a few years now so it kind of has me doubting my decision to come back to android in general. I'm contemplating returning the Note for a pixel XL but was kind of unimpressed with the initial reveal. Either way I'll be away from iPhone at least for foreseeable future. I guess I'm looking for some positive feedback from some Note users as I'm struggling to currently find any. Thanks in advance!
    I did the same thing as you did only with the iPhone 6. I'd been an avid iPhone user owning a 3GS, 4, 5, and then the 6 Plus. I had the 6 Plus for about a week before I decided I really didn't like it. I didn't like the design at all (iPhone 5 was my favorite design), and iOS was boring me to tears.

    At the same time I was being tempted by a close friend to check out the Galaxy Note 4. It was better looking with way better hardware specs than the iPhone 6 Plus so I decided to sell the iPhone 6 Plus while it was in high demand. With the $1200 I got for the iPhone 6 Plus I purchased and Note 4 off the shelf (which came with a GearFit watch), a 128GB sdcard and a Spigen case.

    The Note 4 is an amazing phone. I would say it is even better than the Note 5. But when the Note7 came out I was like yes this is worthy to replace the Note 4.

    I currently have the replacement Note7 and it's running like a dream. Personally I don't think you should go back to the iPhone. The 7 Plus has less specs than my Note 4! It's like a phone that uses old parts lol. Here is a list of why I am still not interested in an iPhone...

    1. No fast charge
    2. No wireless charge
    3. No sPen
    4. No microSD slot
    5. No sAMOLED screen
    6. No Always On Displays (AOD)
    7. No NFC tagging
    8. The camera in real world testing isn't nearly as good as Note7's camera...
    9. iTunes (limited music and video transfer and codec capabilities)
    10. Native resolution only 1080p (iPhone 7 Plus) and 750p (iPhone 7)
    11. ppi (pixels per inch) are sub-par.
    12. Bezels are too big. The Note7 is a smaller phone but with a bigger screen. Why the huge bezels apple??

    I could say more haha but I'll leave it at that. You made the right decision. Worst case scenario they recall the Note7 completely. If that happens I recommend getting a Note 4 and flashing it with a customized Note7 rom. This is what I did with my Note 4. It's amazing. Like a new phone again.

    I notice folks that seem to be pretending they are Note 7 users or said were considering, but actually appears to be iPhone users all along.

    I don't want to be stuck with a lesser device for two years. This really sucks. I may just go back to my Note 4 and upgrade when they get their act together with the S8 Pro with SPen. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I have the N910G SnapDragon Note 4 so this rom below is specific to that model...

    [N910G/F/T][upated V4 ]Norma N7 full Port V4

    If you have a different Note 4 model I suggest you do a search in google or the xda forum for "N**** Note7 rom" and see what comes up.

    Sticking with it. I'm too invested in the Samsung ecosystem, and having wireless charging and USB-C. The screen is too flipping beautiful.

    I just returned my Note7 to the T-Mobile store I purchased it from and received a full refund with NO restocking fee. I was within the 14 day return period, but I was expecting to pay the $50 restocking fee but they waived it without me even asking.

    The sad part is that I really liked this phone a lot, but I have lost confidence in this particular model. My wife has a Note 5 and son has an S6 and never had any issues so i think this is just limited to the Note 7. Will I buy a Samsung device again in the future, I think I would because I feel that they will take extra steps to ensure that any new model that comes out works without issue.

    It would suck once the investigation is over...you learn that it was not a real issue and that the user may have been using the wrong charger or did something else to cause the device to explode.....keeping my phone as long as possible.

    If I have to return, it's back to s7 edge since it will be getting Grace Ux when Android nougat arrives .....

    I went to my local AT&T store to check and see what is going on. The person that I spoke to literally had no idea what I was talking about. She sat there with her tablet and checked and said that there was nothing official from AT&T regarding the replacement Note 7s. Frankly, given all the press and past issues, I think many of us are over reacting right now. Unless I'm forced to return my Note 7, I'm keeping mine.

    I guess I know why T-Mobile gave me a full refund with no questions asked.
    Samsung knew a third replacement Note 7 caught fire on Tuesday and said nothing - The Verge

    After reading this article I am so much more comfortable with my decision to return the Note7. It seems that it is still a defective device and I have a feeling that there will be another recall and eventually a discontinuation of the Note 7. It's design needs to be re-done. If the replacements received a different battery and they are still catching fire, it's appears that the issue may lie in how the Note 7 uses the battery. When I first got my replacement and plugged it in to charge it got really hot, but eventually it was okay. I don't think that is normal, I even contacted Samsung and they said that was normal but that the phone was safe to use.
