    Get the Edge though and not the regular S7. The regular S7 is a outstanding device BUT you will hate how small the phone is. I wish back in March I bought the S7 Edge instead of the regular S7. I probably wouldn't have got tangled in the Note 7 fiasco because I'd still be using the Edge.
    I already know I can't go back to the small screen. Im just seeing I forgot to put edge. I'm more concerned about how much more pronounced the edge is on the s7 edge compared to the note 7. I'll just have to get used to that.

    I got the Note 5 today with turning in my Note7. It's a very decent phone. Glad Verizon had it. Two other customers were there trading too. Customers are listening, taking this serious.
    I had the Note 5. great phone, smooth, but not water resistant which I'd like to have. I would still take the Edge over the Note 5 even though I don't use all my memory.

    I was worried too, but it's not really a big deal at all, especially when using the Otterbox Defender on it. The Defender for the Edge is great though, but VERY hard to find in any stores as they sell out quick or are low on stock. You almost certainly will have to order it off Amazon or directly from otterbox. Teh screen protector on the S7 edge defender fits tight so no dirt gets under it like the other defenders.

    With the Note on the shelf, currently the Edge is probably one of the top devices now. V20 lets see how good that is, and the iPhone 7 IMO other than the speed of it I don't see it being better than the Edge. Too bland.

    release date and other factors yes. I'm not saying it won't or can't happen, but the only way to be sure (after seeing what was done with the 800 and Android N) is to buy the very latest Qualcomm processor.

    I can't wait for the day when this becomes less of a problem.
    Perhaps when money stops existing :P

    Ok, so I must power off Note 7-fine. We upgraded my daughter after paying off her N4 to S7 edge-is ok, but not even close to N7 I feel. So do I go back to my N3 or use her N4. She had all sorts of problems with N4 shutting off a few times a day, bought new battery and still happened. My N3 was slow over last few mo's. Factory reset on both I guess and try the 4. If still has probs, then go with the 3.

    Now do I keep the N7(powered off) and hope that Samsung figures this all out and get lucky with another exchange or maybe they release the Note 8 with the S8 in the next coming mo's(which I'll have returned the N7 if they completely give up on it)? I really believe that this is a combination of the USB C along with 'a lot in a little space' battery, in a tightly spaced/compact phone. I wouldn't have complained if this thing was just a smidge wider or thicker-valuable breathing room! Or do I give it back and wait, for what would basically be 4 years in between phones for me if I have to wait until next Aug/Sept. I'm not going to anything less then the S-pen. I use it regularly...had a Note 8.0 and that recently died so I'm really reeling here.

    What are your suggestions?

    The only thing Samsung has impressed me with so far is their ability to make a bad situation worse.
    let's see if there's a thing as bad publicity

    So, let me get this right, you rather go back to a Note 3 or 4 than an S7e? ๐Ÿ˜†

    Why not return the Note 7, and grab a Note 5? Note 5 was darn reliable and you get to keep some cash in your pocket when all is said and done?

    Shut em off and keep em
    Samsung will just disable full battery charging in an update.

    Of course you could just not update anymore ๐Ÿ˜†

    You can exchange it for a different phone. You can get a refund and buy a different phone. You don't deserve a free phone when you've been given these options.
    There are no other phones... At least no other phones that can compare to a note 7

    If I can get my money back, will just wait for next year 's S8 maybe. Really no other phone that I want now.

    Even S8, I'm a bit reluctant as I really prefer Note series, but definitely can't wait so long until Note 8 or whatever it's called.

    A apple fan would enjoy every worthless feature in the iPhone........the phone itself is a gimmick and a highly closed in environment....and the design is beyond hideous in the modern smartphone world....I don't want a phone that half bezel half screen....
    Such nonsense! Why is the iPhone a gimmick? With regard to speed, stability and reliability it's unbeaten. That's why most enterprises rely on iPhone. The closed environment has its advantages: the aforementioned speed, stability, reliability. Design is subjective. I care more about what's inside the box. Also the brandnew Pixel phones look exactly like the iPhone.

    Samsung Electronics Co. is ending production of its problematic Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, taking the drastic step of killing off a smartphone that became a major headache for the South Korean electronics maker.

    After halting sales of the new versions of the large-screen smartphone that failed to fix exploding batteries, Samsung finally pulled the plug on a key product that was supposed to compete with Apple Inc.โ€™s iPhones and other high-end smartphones during the U.S. holiday shopping season.
    Production will stop, Samsung said in a statement Tuesday.

    Honestly it's not all that bad. BUT: I have an OtterBox case on it (with the screen open), so the case has a sturdy outer edge of its own that gives the s7edge a feel of having a full frame like the noteb5 does.

    Does the s7 edge use wireless charging? I don't know much about the the s7 edge is that the edge is way more pronounced than the N7 and I don't like that. ๐Ÿ˜•
    Yes it 0
    I already know I can't go back to the small screen. Im just seeing I forgot to put edge. I'm more concerned about how much more pronounced the edge is on the s7 edge compared to the note 7. I'll just have to get used to that.

    I'll have to look up which OtterBox I have on mine. It doesn't cover the screen- isn't the Defender the one that covers the screen
