    The reason I use a Note is the S-Pen - and none of those has a place to keep a stylus internally. But unless Samsung does a MAJOR about-face, I'm done with them.

    Is LG next for you or TBD?

    The V20 looks the most promising to me but it won't be out on Verizon for a while yet.

    I'll comment in... OnePlus3 and ZTE Axon 7. I think those have most of the basic flagship specs in processor and memory. The rest of the specs can be compareable to the pluses and minuses of the other flagships because each one doesn't have the perfect spec list (For example, ZTE is noted to have a quality DAC over others while Samsung may not have the best audio but they have the best camera).

    And at $400 they probably beat all on value! So much so I really have a hard time justifying the prices from a S7/Edge over those if I'm going to go Android and Companies like Samsung and LG have show why their phones cost $700-800 dollars. Note 7 has one-of-a-kind features which make it an exception at THAT level.

    I pulled the trigger on the Axon 7 yesterday...got it at best buy for $360 plus tax (10% if you used a BB credit card to pay)...hopefully the camera will be acceptable. If not, I will pay the $35 return fee and just get an S7 Edge...

    Fortunately, I still have my Note 5, and I'm back to using it.

    Note 7 is powered down. Gonna try to go get a refund sometime this week.

    It is sad.. cause that N7 was AWESOME!!! I dont think ive ever loved a phone so much lol!! The only thing that comes close for me is my Note 5. So that's what I'm going with for now.

    Not a bad way to go though.. NOTE 5 is still an extremely nice phone!

    Excellent point for those with AT&T and T-Mobile or outside of the US. GSM carriers get more and better options a lot of the time. Adding these two to the OP.

    I was just looking for new note 4's. Of course used ones have weak batteries and may well have problems. Most recent update borked battery life in many

    Someone recently posted that they have had luck finding deals on OEM Note 4 batteries. Think it was Synycalwon but I could be wrong.

    Ya but most out there are counterfeit. Those that are genuine are old.

    The good thing with the Note4 is you can replace the battery yourself, you won't be able to do that with Note5.

    After much hand wringing and soul searching, I think I'm going to get a Note 5. It's the only Note I never purchased since the Note 2 because it didn't have an SD card but I can't live without an SPen. Kill me now.... 😢😢😢😢

    It's the 3000mah battery that bothers me. I hqve no problem with 64gb. It's plenty for me

    I wish Samsung would speak up and make this a little less painful. Give us something for being loyal through two recalls. A voucher for the next device or something. $25 ain't cutting it. I'm just so over this.

    Would be nice if they offer a incentive to switch to the S7 Edge. Maybe a $100 Samsung gift card or a Samsung Pay promo.

    will do...forgot to say it includes free two shipping so I should have it on THU...

    as far as the camera goes, I read in the Axom forum that there are camera apps that allow you to control shutter speed which might help those low light shots...

    When I got my Note 7 I gave my Note 5 to my wife. I think what I will do is get the 5 back from her and get her the S7 and I will just have to wait until next year. Sucks, but I think that's what's going to have to happen......

    Why didn't you include the Nexus 6P 128 GB

    I bought it this year by March and definitively love it! Great 7 months with this handset with excellent camera performance, dual speakers and QHD screen!.

    I surely recommend the Nexus 6P and you will have a great bang for the buck as well as another two years of direct security patches from Google.

    Although I prefer 5.5 inch screen I don't like round edges so I am tempted to go for a s7 refurb from Best Buy. $300 off & only time I miss big screen is watching Netflix. I do that maybe once a week. Might be worth a try. I'm sick of waiting for V20
