    Early reviews showed the V20 as being far off from color accuracy. I believe this was an earlier review unit, though.
    If I'm not mistaken, the color accuracy of the Note7 was spot on.

    I "rage quit" Samsung long ago. Long story short: Galaxy Tab 2. They'd "improved" the Android clipboard with their own, inducing a clipboard malfunction, crashiness and a gaping security hole. They knew about it. It was even covered by several industry on-line news outlets. Failed to fix it. That told me all I needed to know about Samsung design capability and customer service.

    I swore I'd never own another Samsung "smart" device.

    We have a business account for a small business. I am one of the people in charge of the account. I had no issue what so ever exchanging my phone over the phone. Didn't feel like going to the store this time. I ordered the iPhone 7 plus 256gb which is now on backorder. As soon as they get one in they are sending it out and I send the Note back. All this was done with no problem so I'm sure you'd have no problem ordering the Pixel.

    We all loved the Note 7 because it is the most comfortable 5.7" screen phone ever made; narrow with minimal bezels. It's become obvious via the CPSC and Samsung's own admission that in the quest to make the phone as small as possible, the compact/high density battery design had unintentional catastrophic issues.

    I would like to offer a possible design solution to Samsung.

    REMOVE THE HEADPHONE JACK in order to allow for a LARGER/SAFER battery to fit. I know everyone here has chuckled about Apple's decision to remove it on the iPhone 7, but honestly, I'm willing to compromise on this in order for Samsung to release a better/safer phone with the same design aesthetics and features that we all loved.

    If you agree, let your words be heard. Maybe they'll listen and move on it quickly.

    Based on anandtech display test Note7 is good, but fary away from iPhone 7 in almost every test:
    http:// Display - The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Review: Iterating on a Flagship

    IPS is still just a better technology if utilized correct. Other than the deep dead black pixels and thus the energy efficiency (which is one of the main reasons phone makers go for OLED), IPS is better.

    It's a catastrophic instance like this that make you realize the true gains of removing the mic jack from the iPhone really was... space. Also shows you the genius of their design and the advantage of their total control of hardware and software in optimizing performance and power usage so that they don't have to play the big battery trend stuffing 3500+mah batteries to get long life using a 2900 mah battery I think in the 7 Plus?

    The rumor has it though... the S8 will ditch the jack. I'm sure all manufacturers will start following the trend. They can blame it on Apple while it will give them the space they need to stuff more into these phones.

    Why? Just make the phone 1/4" bigger, and be done with it. I wouldn't even mind if the damn thing was twice as thick, if it meant 50% more battery...

    You are not the only one, going to keep mine until the last possible minute, and even then i will most likely keep it a little bit beyond that.
    Agreed. I am also waiting to hear from the investigation. Supposedly we have until December 31st to decide on exchanging. I want to see if something comparable comes out between now and then. Otherwise I will choose between the Note 5 or S7E. Both are as close as you can get to a Note 7, but Note 7 is better.

    It has? How is this obvious? Is there one article where Samsung says this was the cause?

    I did the same I gave back the S7 Edge and got the Note 5 however I have a 32 gigabyte but I'm fine with that because I use the cloud for a whole bunch of stuff
    I got a feeling I'll be doing the same thing. I'm definitely gonna hold off on buying a ton of accessories for the S7 Edge

    Yes. All the reviews out there are four preview units. The reputable reviewers started that and that there should be some changes made to the final version. Not sure what those changes will be though.

    IMO, they should offer the Note 5 free or close to free for prior N7 owners only.
    They are. You get the Note 5 and they refund you the difference in cost.

    I had the S5 in the past quite a while ago it wasn't a bad device by any means. My concern for you is it is significantly smaller screenwise

    I beg to differ. I had the s7 edge, and now chose the Note 5. Yes it's "older" but it is anew excellent phone and can keep up with all the stuff I was doing on the Note 7. Got mine new just the other day and it received a software update. Running well.
    How's the battery after the update. Mine is horrible and so ate a lot of others if you read the note 5 forum

    The S7 edge is selling fast now. IMO it's the closest. I only had the option to get silver cause the gold and black would ship later.
    On Verizon website, silver is out of stock, the other 2 are shipping Friday, hopefully

    Sometimes i think are people like you really sane? What's the OVERLY BIG desire to keep this smartphone? People like you think Note 7 is a Holy Grail that you just have to keep their hands on. Grow up of this juvenile attitude. It is potentially dangerous product, return it like Samsung has said, and wait for the next flagship product from them and/or buy something else meanwhile.

    Gosh whata jokers.

    I bet there's coming other such topics popping up her asking the same thing, as if maybe there's a chance the support continues and nothing happens, and Samsung does a complete 180 LOL.

    And i bet LG V20 IPS panel produces more color accuracy, like the iPhone 7 is the new king of displaymate.com
    LG displays have always been poor in terms of accuracy and efficiency. Not sure why you expect a 180 on that.

    I had to charge mine 3 times yesterday. I wiped the cache, some say that fixed it, will see. I ordered the s7 edge, figure can try that for a week and send it back if I can't stand it. It's a $35 gamble

    Edit...Nothing is out of the ordinary when looking at the battery usage
