    I can get the $425 credit since I had a note 7. I love my v20... Except for the battery life. I'm honestly not fond of the curved screen and glass build on the note 8 though... But I loved my note 7 so much.

    Torn on what to do?

    I'd dump the V20 like a bad habit before it's only worth $100.

    I suggest play around with a display model Note 8 when available in stores near you.

    Bad move. Your best option would be to purchase a used iphone 5 on ebay for around $70 and send that to Samsung for the $425 credit. Then sell off your v20 on its on for $250 easy.

    I didn't have any issues with battery life on my V20 but if that's the only reason you are considering a switch then isn't a battery life issue really mitigated by the fact that you can swap batteries and be back at 100% in less than 2 minutes?

    Ok...I had a V10... Loved it until the update which ruined battery life.

    Traded it in for a note 7... ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Well, then the recall came.

    Saw the v20 was coming out in a few weeks so I though I'd grab that since I liked the V10.

    Pretty much same thing as the v10... Battery life got bad after the last big update.

    So....I'm wrestling what to do. Loved that note 7 (especially that s pen feature) and I love tech so it's a new toy too!

    And that would also legally constitute FRAUD. And EASILY caught by checking who had service and when on the iPhone's ESN and the v20's ESN.
    Then stupid you can get arrested for it.

    Huh? I don't see him suggesting anything illegal at all. He said buy a used iPhone 5 and send it to Samsung. Samsung shows the iPhone 5 as an acceptable trade in.

    After that he said sell the V20 later on its own. I think you're assuming he was saying something else when.. he wasn't... So let's all calm down .

    You will never get more than $425 for the V20. It will continue to tumble in value.

    Since you loved the Note 7, getting the Note 8 seems logical.

    I liked the V20 as well but the main camera doesn't hold a candle to the S8+, especially with motion in the frame, so I switched. I also had the Note 7 which is why I'm getting the Note 8. Being on JoD makes this super simple for me.

    They said UpTo 425 and I can guarantee you they aren't going to give you $425 trade in for V20. Based on how they rip off trade in I'm thinking you may get around $50 to $100 for your V20 when you trade in. If you want my advice instead of getting ripped off with trade ins, sell it yourself on swappa or Craigslist and use that money towards buying Note 8.

    Id like to know what in the hell you thought I meant with this response? Step back from your monitor, take a deep breath, sit back down and read again what I wrote, and this time try to respond without going in with a preconceived notion of what you had in mind. Explain to me how its fraud purchasing a used iphone 5 to send in to Samsung as a trade in and then selling your owned v20 ?

    Its not UP TO. When you proceed through the checkout process its a guaranteed $425 for the listed devices. The only reason they say UP TO, is because if you send them a cracked device, blacklisted, or device that doesn't power on they will only give you $25.

    The way it was described, the $425 credit was for the phone he got to replace the Note 7 (the v20). So I fail to see how buying an iPhone on eBay for the trade is ok. But if I understood it wrong, I apologize

    Samsung would have no idea what exact phone people got to replace their Note 7.

    First thing to ask yourself is is it worth the price. Like others have mentioned, wait til floor models come out and play with them.

    If they are really giving $425 for V20 then yep great deal since even the new one costs less than that probably

    So Samsung is going to give $425 credit on a used iPhone 5 as a mea Culpa on the Note 7 and not even check with your carrier to see if that's the phone you used to replace the Note 7? Wow.. ok

    I got the v20 after the Note 7 disaster and have kept it since. I'm switching to the Note 8 now but passing the v20 on to my son to upgrade his iPhone 5s.

    I also have the v20 and am considering my upgrade options for the new year. In addition to the Note 8, I'm also considering the S8 plus and v30 even though I'm not crazy about some of the changes from the v20

    Either do it now or wait for Black Friday or something for another trade-in deal. I'm going to use my V20 until then anyways.
