    I think this has gotten way out of hand. Nobody is waiting for investigations and becoming judge and jury.
    In the words of Yogi Berra, "It's deja vu all over again! " That's what was said weeks ago. And yet, here we are again. Why would anyone think it's not happening all over again? Fans can hope and pray, but it's probably a lost cause.

    Well, with Tmobile and Jump on demand I am lucky. If they do pull the plug I am going to likely give the V20 a shot. Due out 10/21 on Tmobile. Specs are good. Camera looks outstanding and far less bloatware than Samsung from my understanding.

    Note 7 rocks real hard. V20 has battery life that only a mother would love. To get the same battery life of the Note 7 would take a 4880mah battery. Carry a spare if medium to heavy user.

    Samsung needs to change the name of the Note series going forward.. I feel the infection from the Note 7 in regards to bad press, will continue with Note 8..

    It worked for that horrible company called "VoiceStream". Who we now know as T-Mobile..

    If the V20 performs similar to the V10 its capable of 5+ hours SOT easily. That's what I got out of my V10.

    In a perfect world, this fiasco would mean the end of carriers' stranglehold on phones not made by Apple.
    Especially since subsidized phones are a thing of a past, things should be more like they are everywhere outside of North America.

    Part of the problem with the recall has been the filter through which phones reach the public in the first place.
    I plan to have a V20 as the backup in the future but in reality, it will not compare to a Note 7, even unlocked.
    So frustrated with Samsung. Last year they dropped a rubbish group of phones trying to play catch up with Apple. Now this year, their top of the line was rushed and they pay the price for it.

    Pixel is a non-starter; priced too high for what you get, no microSD, and the features don't compare. I'd sooner pay less for a Nexus 6P if I could deal w/o microSD.

    V20 has the old Note 4 features I miss but I doubt it will have the battery life to compare. No water resistance.

    S7 Edge has less internal storage, won't have Grace UX until Nougat (?); but hey, at least you can get it in pink from Best Buy. Unlocked elsewhere (if you want a Silver model or the Olympic Model).

    I'm keeping my Note 7. But sucks that so many will be missing out because of this.

    And if I'm on the same flight as you, I'd rather you not bring it
    I understand there are people who would like them not to be on planes at all. That said, if they are not recalled or banned, people will still own them and want to bring them on a plane. Until Samsung and the feds release a clear statement regarding the Note 7 replacement phones, the situation is going to be sticky at best.

    If there's no official recall and it's voluntary to keep I'm keeping it......
    i am keeping mine, only way i will let it go is if they disable it somehow.
