    It sucks, no other phone out there that I want, and I have a bunch of accessories now that won't do anything. Sigh

    Is battery life better on the note 4 or 5? I have an s6 and battery life is worse than any phone I've ever used.

    Sad but maybe true. The V20 though:

    Bigger than N7

    40% less battery life

    Grainy low light pics

    Weaker display

    No pen

    No dust or water resistance

    Navigation bar taking 15% of display space for a lot of apps.

    Seems a big let down. If priced similar to the Note 7, a big slap to the face as well.

    Could care less about the DACs. Note 7 sounds fantastic and have no desire to use a battery draining powered DAC to push high impedance headphones. My Grados are just fine at the house with me home system.

    Pixel ain't happening since no SD slot.
    I personally don't get why anyone that loved the Note7 wouldn't go with an S7 Edge instead if they choose to part with the Note7. It's basically the exact same phone without the S-Pen. In fact, initially many were complaining that the Note 7isn't different enough from the S7 Edge at launch. The Pixel and V20 talk confounds me coming from Note7 fans. To each their own I guess.

    Well, this discussion was based on "depending on what Samsung does"....

    Now we know what Samsung is saying as of this evening: "Power down your N7 and bring it in for exchange or refund."

    I guess this process of choosing another phone just gotten more real for us.

    Frankly, although I've loved the N7, it will be nice to have this behind me.

    But, I have to choose.....

    Half the internal storage space

    The edge is too pronounced. Almost twice as much as the Note 7. Distorts games and video. Sides of web pages are not readable unless scrolled. Bluesnews is good example.

    No pen

    No hardware scaling

    The low light pics are not as good as Note 7, but still way better than the V20.

    Nothing groundbreaking but at least they addressed it.

    Including a full refund. Exactly what I want.

    Samsung is really biting the big one tap dancing around this fiasco. Grow a set of balls and tell the consumers what they already know is happening.

    I agree with you - stop all the drama. The next important piece is what device is next?? V20? 7+? I don' want a S7 as they are "old" in device standards.

    It's possible the S7edge will explode too, and there has been,like a couple of cases where it Has, as well as an Active. I'm not taking any chances. I just put in my Note 7 SIM card into my Note 5. I'll wait to see what the LG V 20 brings, but I'm really not a fan of rear fingerprint scanners, but it seems that's the whole new trend now. Pixel, doesn't have a microsd card slot. I'm going to miss the s-pen, water resistance, bigger battery.

    I have a 4 and a 5 and the battery is better on the 4.
    Ugh, I don't want to give up my note 7. If I have to go back to my crapy s6 with 6 hours of battery life, small screen, no s-pen and only 32gb that are always full I'm going to cry.

    It will never happen. Besides, they are finally looking at the design of the circuitry around the battery, rather than the battery itself...

    EXACTLY why is everyone jumping the gun here? There's no recall (yet) and they are still investigating. Why don't we all start worrying when there's some legit info?
    Samsung has indicated no confidence in the safety of the replacements and they have halted production. That means game over, sadly.

    CSPC did not ban it. Yet. Samsung can kiss about five billion dollars goodbye whatever the result now. Lost sales and the recall costs incurred.

    How are them there sealed batteries working for them now? Probably an 80 million dollar problem with non sealed battery. That extra 4.92 billion would be nice to have.

    Thank you Samsung, my first Note phone (besides my temporary Note 4 I bought for a month) and this happens. I am now with the iPhone 7 Plus. Nice doing business with you. Hopefully what ever you had in store for the S8, you stopped it and realized, it needs to be even better than the original plan.
