    Ok so I, like most of us, am really upset about having to give up my awesome and perfectly running replacement note 7 which I just got up and running 3 days ago. I waited for the replacement for almost 4 weeks and then 3 days after I get it this is the bs that happens. Which by the way why are we having to give up all our phones when the direct cause of the 4 or 5 replacement phones buring isn't known yet? I'd really like someone to make me understand that one.

    Anyway, so again like alot of people here, I'm not happy with the choices available right now. I would get an S7edge if samsung would put a nice discount on it for us Note 7 owners and then use that until the s8edge/note 7 comes out and stay with samsung since I have been a loyal customer. If they don't I'm very seriously considering getting an Iphone 7plus. I have never wanted nor considered an Iphone for myself since my kids love em but my wife and I always stuck with the Note series. Thing is I'm pretty pissed off at samsung over this nonsense and time/money wasted. Not to mention I really really love my Note 7 and don't want to give it up but if I have to and samsung doesn't have my back in any way to keep my loyalty then I think I'm out.

    I've been watching youtube reviews for the Iphone 7plus all day and it's a nice device as well. Not as nice as a Note 7 but still nice and dam fast and with long battery life and everything is smooth as silk and just works and works well. So ya I'm not happy and I wanted to get some opinions. You guys think it's wrong of me to expect samsung to offer us something toward a replacement samsung device. Hell I would even take a 200-300 discount off next years note 8 and pay full price for the s7 edge now but to pay full price and get nothing in return feels like a slap in the face for something I don't really want. Opinions?

    I'm gonna hold on to my Note 7 til the end of the month (my old Note 4 is gone so I have no replacement phone), as I'm not ready to downgrade to a S7 Edge (and be stuck with it for a year on lease) and I want to check out the LG V20, which sounds promising on paper, but I saw some YouTube videos today with a demo V20 vs a Note 7 and the screen scores for color accuracy wasn't good, not as good as the N7 at all, and the camera test had the N7 looking much better, so not sure what to do now.
    I read something today about that Huwaei Mate 9, 5.9" phone with 6gb ram, but is it coming Verizon and will it have a capable camera? Probably no for both. It's supposed to be announced 11/3.
    Note 5 is too big of a downgrade - processor, camera, no SD, small internal memory. No thanks.

    Just put the order in for an S7 Edge Silver 64 GB. At least it will be different for a while.
    The 64GB version was not available in the US, right?

    Went to T-Mobile yesterday and the response to me wanting to return the Note 7 was meh-ish at best. The reps said that it's a good phone and I don't have to return it if I want to and samsung is just halting production right now and that they might make them again. I explained to them that's not the case it's completely recalled and cancelled and they are urging people to return it. They said they talked to a samsung rep earlier the day. They kinda persuaded me in not returning it yesterday but I will return it before the week ends. Funny enough I got an text from t-mobile saying that the note 7 is cancelled and samsung and cpsc recommend returning it. Was thinking of getting the s7 edge but might just use an axon 7 instead I really like that phone. Want to s7 edge for vr.

    The point of this. While I was at t-mobile I spotted a phone that I've never seen before. There aren't really any reviews for it. and there is an international dual sim model.

    The LG Stylo Plus 2 on T-mobile

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=eQKzkDBu

    It has a stylus it has a lot of samsung's stylus and note features too like writing on screen and saving memos. I played with it a little at t-mobile and was actually really liking it. Even has a fingerprint scanner and 6.0. I'm not sure if it has NFC. I'm going to test it out at the store again. I might get it and just try it out. I don't know if anyone here has used it but the ratings on t-mobile aren't bad. They have it for straight talk, boost, virgin mobile, and some others a little cheaper. I did look at the note 5 but I can't do without an SD card.

    I am totally suggesting a S7 Edge AND a Intuos Creative stylus 2 pen. It is the closest we can get to a Note 7.... The pen uses bluetooth. It feels like the sPen when writing. I tested it on the Note 4 - sPen and the ICS 2. I did find an app (I need to look it up again) that will give an option for keyboard - for handwriting recognition.

    I am charging my new S7 Edge now.... been installing updates. I did play with the ICS2 on my daughter's S7E yesterday and it worked great!!!

    Went to Verizon and went back to the future with a Note5 😊 (my previous phone)

    I need my stylus there was no other substitute.

    So I'll keep it until the Note8 is released

    I think a lot of people are a little wary about going all in with Sony right now considering their recent track record, at least in the US. However, the XZ looks promising, but I would suggest keeping an open mind with other devices. Here's a good blog post about the XZ and hands-on: The Xperia XZ gives me hope that Sony can turn things around in the U.S. | Android Central
    I used an XPERIA XZ.

    In short, it's alright and certainly a pretty good phone, but for $699, it's a bit of a tough sell.

    Not me, I don't like iOS. I have a work iPhone and it's just so foreign to me.

    Seriously thinking to switch. I want the stylus but Note series seems to be only one that has it.
    During the Hurricane we evacuated and in the poor coverage area (AT&T) where we were my wife could get a signal where my Note3 got nada.

    I used to work warehouse for Sony, tbh their phones are pretty decent. I had a chance to doodle around with their phones in the QA department. Price is high though but quality is good.

    I switched to an IP7+ whenever I get it in. I may order a LG V20 or Pixel XL to have as a spare and play.

    I didn't like the iphone 7 home button so went with a 6s+ until the note 8 comes out.

    I just picked up a new Note 5. It's really quite a capable device and still considered one of the best phones in the phablet category. Feels much better in the hand than my IP6+ and just as fluid as the Galaxy S7.
    Did the 5 really get a completely undeserved bad rap just because of no expandable storage? Shame.

    The note 5 I had was awesome actually. In fact it was smooth as hell. Smoother than both the first note 7 and the replacement.

    I'm seriously considering an iPhone 7 plus in jet black. I've never done ios but Samsung is pissing me off with this whole fiasco that i think i probably will. Unless in the next few days they decide to offer us something off a gs7 edge or note 8 I'm done. They should offer 200-300 off of the next note too us. So far I'm not happy.

    I'm a Note7 owner and I just bought the iPhone 7 plus. I never thought I would, but after returning a Note7 for the second time, I thought maybe I'll make a big change. I usually get a new phone every 2 years, so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm still a big Google guy, so I was curious to see how the iPhone would be with the Google products.

    Please post back and let us know your honest opinion coming from the note 7. I've been android since the g1 so I'm totally interested in your feelings.

    surprised no one mentioned the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. the 3 variants (Snapdragon 625, 820 or 821) should start shipping in the US in a couple weeks.
    I was surprised the Zenfone 3 Deluxe was not on the list. Will be shipping at the end of the month (at least in the US).

    I pre-ordered the Deluxe from Newegg, Snapdragon 820, 6GB RAM, 5.7" AMOLED display for $499.

    May I ask what is it that you don't like the iPhone 7 home button? I was playing around with one and it felt weird and not as responsive like the previous iPhone home buttons. Just wondering if you experienced the same.

    Thanks

    Yeah the list was pretty amateur, huh?
