    So I went back to my OP3 and realized how laggy and hard to use my Note 7 was. I guess I just got used to it because I didn't think it was laggy, but my OP3 is blazing fast compared to my Note 7. To be honest the OP3 feels better in the hand too.....and it's half the price!

    How's the display and camera compare?

    Of course, nothing is going to really compare to the Note7, but I don't think I can go with a S7 or S7E. For one, I'm a little peeved at Samsung right now, and two, I prefer a more "squared-off" look to the phone (the same reason I waited to get the S5 when I had the S2, instead of getting the S3 or S4). The Xperia XZ doesn't have wireless charging (which sucks because I bought 2 of the suckers off of Amazon when I first got the Note7), but the camera sounds decent and it's got expandable memory.

    I'm having a hard time why this model only and not the edge 7 plus? To me, edge 7 plus is the flagship, not note 7. I see more people using the edge than note.

    Because the S7 Edge doesn't have USB C and the Note 7 does. Samsung's first USB C device.

    I don't think it's the USB c. I think the compartment in the phone that holds the battery is a little too tight and causing too much pressure and heat build up.

    It's very close at this point, the camera on the OP3 is suprisingly well. I can't really tell much of a difference yet, have to do some night shots and compare.

    LMAO. I doubt it has ANYTHING to do with the Note 7 having USB Type C! Like at all. No correlation what so ever. For all we know, it could be the circuitry around the battery. Funny comment.

    With the damage and bad reputation now associated with the Note 7, do you believe the Note line can continue? I can't imagine releasing a Note 8 next year could fare well with the stigma that will likely still linger. Should Samsung just release it under a completely new name? What possible remedy is there?

    Note line was far too successful to just die

    I'm sure as hell waiting in line for the next note. Fires or not, doesn't change the fact that he design and features was one of the best in the world

    And like Iphones has not had any fires.
    The technology with Lithium batteries has bit a lot of companies in the butt.

    But lithium batteries are good, and very lightweight. And carry a lot of power and longer life.
    If they could just get a handle on them.
    One has nothing to do with the other. Not sure of the point of consistently bringing iPhone up when the thread isn't about iPhone.

    I will say this: if there were this many news stories about ANY manufacturers phone, and I had personally seen more than one of that manufacturers phone over the past couple of years that had caught fire for no apparent reason, I wouldn't buy their products. I don't care if it says HTC, LG, BB or yes Apple on the front of it. The constant "but Apple, but Apple, but Apple" going on doesn't detract from the fact that Samsung, right now, has a credibility problem. There's even been posts when this whole thing started of "so and so said it was a Note 7 but it was a Galaxy Core, and then this report said a Note 7 but it was a GS6, and then this story said Note 7 when the phone clearly was GS7 - the media are making mistakes"...which is all well and good until you realize that the phones all had one manufacturer in common.

    Stop diverting the discussion to bash other manufacturers because clearly Samsung has seen something from their end that they feel is dangerous enough to issue a global discontinuation of their flagship less than 2 months after release.

    Not a good situation at the moment as there simply are no comparable alternatives....and in 2 weeks I start flying weekly so I am going to have to make some sort of move.....

    Honestly, this was / is a great phone without the gimmick curved screen the precludes a viable screen protector. Other than that this phone has everything I wanted.

    IF we are forced to switch, I haven't a clue what to so. The 7 Edge has worse edges the S7 has too small of a screen, the V20 coming out isn't waterproof and has a lesser quality screen and the iPhone 7 plus just isn't user friendly if you take a lot of pictures and constantly need to sort them into individual files, plug into your computer and easily transfer things, etc.

    I am starting to think that the only realistic alternative that is remotely close is to go backwards and find a new or lightly used Note 5. Worse battery life, no waterproofing, no additional storage.

    Don't really want to go with an S7 and get stuck living with it. My eyes and work need the bigger screen.....
    It has good reviews there is the cloud use I do miss my SD card use but there isn't a phone I like to switch to from the Note7 the logical choice for me was the Note5. I had upgraded to the 7 from the 4. I traded yesterday. I like it and will suffice for me. At least I like the phone and don't hate it. I used the edge 7 for 12 days and I did not like that phone

    Might be the end of the "note" designation. But highly doubt it will be the end of the "note" connotation.

    The next line will most likely have a different name, but will still be a "note" at heart.

    The proof is in the pudding...the S7 Edge has been in production for more than six months and there have been any reports of igniting phones, at least none that I have heard of. So for whatever reason, its safety is proven.

    I can see Samsung dropping the "Note" name, but keeping a note device. I wouldn't mind them calling the next one "Pro" so we would have the S8 (5.1"), S8 Edge (5.5") and S8 Pro (5.7" with stylus).

    I was able to return my Gear S2 today to AT&T and have the line cancelled. I got it back in August and did not have any issues returning the watch because the store manager said that any accessories purchased with the Note 7 were returnable. Hope that helps

    I think that 1 year is plenty for the buying public to forget the N7 disaster. I see pros and cons with your suggestion. I personally really like your idea but the downside I think is that it is an obvious attempt to rename and disassociate from the Note 7. I think many people will see through the name and realise it's another Note with a different name.

    If Samsung did that, then I think it's a BIG mistake to call it a "Pro 8". If you call it a Pro device, then it has to be just "Pro", indicating the first iteration of a truly new line of product. Then to justify renaming it, you have to do something different that the Note serious didn't do. Introduce some new features to truly justify the new badge. Otherwise as I say, people will just roll their eyes and see through it. And differentiate the new serious from the S series, so that it does not suffer the criticisms that it's just a bigger S phone with an S pen.

    Let's say you introduce the first Pro series and you give it something exclusive like in the Pixel phone, such as unlimited cloud storage for photos/videos, on-screen customer support etc. Something the S series doesn't have. And it has to be something the S series will not eventually get, for e.g., iris scanner.

    But I really like the idea of a Pro series. I think that's a great idea.

    After a sprint run around trying to cancel my account ended up walking out with an edge7. and honestly im not liking it. OFCOURSE its not the note 7. the phone is smaller which makes my fingers press more on the edge screen then the thin side metal. Making typing annoying because it registers my touch on screen and hides the keyboard or opens apps i wasnt using. not to mention the lag, a few times the phone has stopped responding. Doesn't sit right with me to be "forced" to pay for a phone i didnt want in the first place. Had the note 5 when the edge came out if i had wanted it wouldve upgraded then. Gonna hold on to it till my account situation clears up then returning it.

    Funny I see all this media talk, but on forums no one is giving up their Note 7. I've had 4 Note 7's pass through my house (I've had originally black, returned for silver, and now a replacement silver, and my wife had one) and none have had issues. There's no other phone that compares and mine is here to stay. Samsung is taking an unfair beating. They've done a stand-up job in my opinion. Plus, they've given away stuff this year like crazy (gear vr, fit watch, as card). When's the last time Apple gave away a free accessory to buyers? Yet the fanboys keep kissing their butts.
    Samsung will likely disable the phone in the near future. They have to to prevent further ones going up in flames.

    Your phone will have no support and be worth nothing

    Hi,

    Did anyone bought Note 7 Original through business accounts, able to get Verizon to place the pixel xl to exchange w/ Note 7 in return once it arrives? Trying to see what my options would be since mine was placed through business account.

    I just read that Samsung has had hundreds of independent testers and engineers trying to duplicate this problem since the first recall. None of them have been able to get the phones to malfunction. I really want to know what's actually causing this issue.

    No, Note line is dead. Public won't forget, it's all over the media and they will make sure it's headlines again should samsung launch another one.

    We are still waiting on the real cause of note 7 catching fire from Samsung. But I think it's most likely the design of battery compartment being too tight. That would be very sensitive to any external shock or not having enough room to dissipate heat when phone is heating up with heavy usage.

    Also we can't rule out the possibility of sabotage in battery supplier's fab or samsung's phone manufacturing line. The timing of those incidents look suspicious.

    I too am stuck in the dilemma. Between the V20 and Pixel XL, I think I will be going the pixel route. I need to go to Best Buy and see how things play out. I know they are offering a $100 gift card for pre ordering the Pixel XL. Granted it's the Verizon model, I am already on their network. The only downside is the locked bootloader, but I won't be rooting so I don't care for that. There's no bloatware which is a plus. The only risky thing is how soon will updates come thru... Since it would have to be approved by Verizon. Regardless, I'd rather take my chances with a clean OS/Google flagship phone over the V20 at this point.
