    I am using the Nova Launcher on the V20 and LOVE it. I am unsure how the Nova Launcher on the N7 is different than the using the launcher on the V20?

    I am three days in with my V20 and just cannot say how much I love it. I chose it because I really don't care for the aestics of the Pixel. I mean if I wanted and iPhone looking phone I would just by an iPhone .

    The V20 has a very sleek look and I love the edge to edge display......The secondary screen is really REALLY nice as well....

    Bravo LG!
    After hands on with both phones, I liked the Pixel XL better. Both are not Note 7's. The Pixel XL performed better at the Verizon store. That is why I said to have some hands on time with the phone before making a decision. From some of the results coming out I feel I made the right decision.

    I'm surprised you didn't go back to iPhone. I thought about Note 5, but I can't with 32GB.
    I was never sold on my iPhone. I love my note 7 though. I was able to get the note 5 in black sapphire with 64 gb. Hoping that will be enough. My old iPhone only had 16 gb I think. Lol

    I am 2 days into the V20 and I must say..... It is REALLY nice. In my opinion the V20 is the way to go here. In many ways it's better than the Note 7. It is ridiculously fast and smooth. Great build quality. The camera features and high end audio and second screen is fantastic. I loved my N7 and thought my mobile phone life died with it, but the V20 has me in mobile phone bliss again. I can't believe I'm saying this but if I walked into a store today and both were available I'm not so sure I'd pick the N7 again..... It's that good.

    LG V20......love it, so far.
    I do really miss the stylus pen, though.

    Went back and forth for weeks on this decision and it wasn't easy. Ultimately went with the S7 Edge yesterday as it's closest to the Note 7, got the same silver color, similar camera, edge screen, SD card, can use my wireless charger still, and I'm hearing that Samsung is doing deals for those N7 customers sticking with Samsung when the S8/N8 comes out. I also got in writing from Verizon I could upgrade after 50% paid off instead of 100%.

    I tested the LG V20 and wanted to like it, but after playing with one last week, side by side with my N7, the screen wasn't nearly as nice and the camera didn't take as good pix (bunch of blurry ones in lower light). Couldn't compromise a worse camera for 6 months (or longer depending when N8 is out)

    Tested the Pixel XL head to head with my N7 too and the screen and camera were very close, but the boring iPhone form factor (huge bezels), no SD card, no wireless charging and no water proofing turned me off.

    S7E had more of what I liked in the N7, minus s pen and screen size, of course, and I can make it almost look like I had my N7 (Nova launcher helps). Hopefully I'll be back to the next Note soon!

    Went with a 7+ and back to IOS after 3 years. I'll switch to my backup Nexus 6p when I want an Android fix. There wasn't any other Android phone that interested me.

    Would you go for the next Note [if they call it Note]? What do you think about the possible offerings in the S8 line this spring? Lots of rumors and leaked photos of those

    I wouldn't go for the S8 unless it has at least a 5.5 inch screen. Would consider the next note but right now I doubt I would switch. The 7+ is really nice and my wife has an iPhone. It's nice being able to facetime her from anywhere. One thing stopping me from going full iOS is android wear. I would have to sell my smartwatch and shell out another few hundred for an apple watch.

    I'm interested in a smart watch for my 7 plus but the Apple Watch doesn't do it for me , I like the G3 but that's not a option now

    If your Note 7 is the blue model I'd like to buy it from you. Or anyone else that has one on Verizon.
    Mine is blue and on Verizon

    Turned in my N7 yesterday for the V20 and its very impressive. I have to say its much smoother and faster. I do not have any issues with the screen as some have talked about. Hardest part for me is no "home button", but I am getting used to it. I like the fingerprint reader on the back. Sound quality is far superior to the N7. Haven't taken many pictures but that looks to be a lot better. Overall I am happy. The guys at my AT&T store really helped me out also. Didn't even ask for the box. Gave me credit for my screen protector. Also got the promo for the $150 headphones.
    Not happy about getting rid of the Note, but can't do anything about it anymore and I was tired of the daily texts and emails about it. Samsung better do their homework on the next line of phones is all I can say.

    I'd kinda sorta a little tiny bit decided on going with the V20 once forced. Now with the chatter about S7/S7E users being able to update to the next flagship(s) I'm not so sure. The videos on the V20 are promising. I just can't stand the thought of losing the tons of notes and diaries I've been creating for years on the Notes. Just the mention of a N8 has me locked and loaded for the S7E.

    I think we're going to see some incoming discounts on apple watches soon since their sales are way down. I'm gonna snag one if they go on sale as bit. It's cool but a real gimmickry novelty as far as I'm concerned so not worth full price to me.

    This is driving me nuts trying to decide what to get or if my phone will burn up. Will Samsung brick the phone or will they offer people in the US something similar as in South Korea? I've narrowed my choices to the s7 edge, the LG V20 or buying a cheap note 4. I'll get the s7 if Samsung offers a deal for us to get the note 8 but so far nothing. As far as the V20 goes I want to see one in person first but nowhere has them on display. Best Buy are idiots and say they never heard of the phone and my Verizon corporate stores don't have any in stock or on display. Both the guys at Best Buy and Verizon tell me they wouldn't touch an LG with a ten foot pole. Another interesting thing is my Verizon corporate stores have also pulled all of their s7's off display. The only Samsung they have on display is the note 5, S6, and J3. When I asked why they said it was because of battery issues with the note 7 and S7. I could go back to my s6 but it gets crazy hot from just being on and nothing seems to fix that.

    That phone looks amazing. Probably no chance of using it on Verizon, but I'm certainly going to look into it.

    There was no way I was going to use my upgrade on an older phone or a S7 I wasn't interested in before the Note. I felt a little disappointed once I got to see a V20 which felt like the only remaining option.

    I went iPhone 7+ which wasn't even on my radar. Haven't used one fully since the 4S. Really disliked the idea pre Note nightmare.

    Gotta say it's going to be an adjustment but I'm having fun day 1. Phone is super premium in every way and so fast. I picked up an iPad and between that and my Mac it's a pretty great experience hopping from one to another. There are a ton of issues I have with iOS, but sometimes change is fun. I'm not a brand guy, I like tech.

    ?? The S7 and S7 Edge aren't having issues like the Note 7, not to the point of pulling stock that I was aware of. Really surprised your Verizon pulled them off the displays like that.

    Why are you wanting to buy one? Idk if it's even legal for me to sell it?
    1st I don't believe anything is wrong with the phone. I believe Google is trying to sabotage Samsung. I already have one but i wanted a blue one when I got my replacement but they didn't have any. I really believe they will become a collector's item down the road when people realize there's nothing wrong with them. After seeing the article about Samsung disabling the European models to fully charge I'm having second thoughts though. Samsung said it was a voluntary recall recall so I was thinking they may just leave it alone. As far as it being illegal there are ways of getting around that part but I'm going to wait.

    I am so sick of people saying that the iPhone 7 Plus is so "buttery smooth". Yes, it is very smooth...BUT, I have one now (256GB version) and it DOES in FACT stutter on ocassion and lag when going in and out of apps. Not all the time, but it does.

    My Note 7 had very little lag. Others complained they had it but I did not. I am so ticked off right now. That N7 was hands down the best phone that I have ever used.

    I am also not happy with the fact that this iphone is 5.5 vs 5.7 inches and yet, is wider and taller than the N7. I got used to that nice feel in the hand and iphone just feels too big now for some reason. My hand actually bothered me at first, but I am getting used to it.

    Apps are a little better on the iphone and I actually like the look of video better on the iPhone as well. And, well, one of the biggest factors? Battery. WOW WOW and WOW for iPhone 7 plus. After 1 week of use, and I am a pretty heavy user, I am averaging 16 hours of use with equivalent of 6.5-7 hours of SOT. That just blows away my Note 7 but a good 3-4 hours. But here is the amazing part.

    I have yet to get the iPhone to go below 15% battery during and of that time, so I could get approximately 18-20 hours with about 8-9 hours of SOT before it would die.

    Every night I am going to bed I have between 18-25% juice left after literally trying to drain the battery on this.

    I also unplugged it one night at midnight..fully charged and when I got up on the weekend at 8:15am, it was STILL at 100%.

    Still, I am going to look at the Note 8 if they make it because I miss the pen and overall experience...If they could somehow get a 4000 to 4500 battery in it that would be enough for me to make the change easy.

    Well i hate to go backwards with phones so the S7 for me at the price was to much now. So i went with the 6 plus edge used off of ebay as a phone to use till the next phones come out in 2017 yes it is back more but it is used not buying new like a s7 would be. So if i am going to go backwards for a 5.7 in phone then it has to be cheaper. If i went with the Pixel or the V20 i would still want a 2017 phone and then have to sell the v20 which y then will have less value. This way i can just keep the 6 plus edge when the new phones come out in 2017 as a backup since the price was good.
