    I'll let you know when I get it. I pre-ordered the black edge and still don't have it.

    Still have my edge, I have till tonight lol. The suspense is killing me, I am so torn but I am leaning toward keeping the edge.

    Thing is that this phone is flawless meaning the one I have, battery is also amazing.

    I am scared if I switch my battery will not be good, I know it's only 600mah but that is 20%

    Can the S7 do 5 hours SoT if I tweak?

    There are many more cases available for the regular S7.

    I really haven't been using the edge panel, but I love the size, battery, and overall look of the S7 Edge vs the S7.

    I have to admit that I thought about swapping for the S7, but I can't see going back to a smaller display (former HTC One M8 owner). My older eyes really appreciate the larger screen!

    You WILL regret downsizing, and i doubt u'd get used to it. You may, but EVERY time u see an Edge, you'll be like, "dang it"! AND there are no two ways about it, the S7 Edge is a sleeker looking device, better bat life AND a bigger screen but YET just as easy to hold. Its a 4 way win : )

    I've been using the S7 and the phone is too small for me. I'm going to T-Mobile and exchanging for a S7 Edge.

    5.1 compared to 5.5 isn't really that much. 5.1 compared to 5.7 of the Note series, now that;s a different matter. The s7 edge isn't that much bigger than s7

    This is true when the phones are naked, add a medium protection level case and the differences become quite apparent.

    Edge. I had the regular 7 and traded it up for the edge. Battery life on the 7 was terrible.

    My 3000mAh battery in the small S7 is holding up well. Averaging about 5 hours SOT each day. Not bad.

    I chose the S7 edge to replace my S3! After that long almost anything would have been an improvement but I refused to upgrade last year because of the small battery and lack of expandable storage.

    Only issue for me has been finding a decent TPU case for it. The edge shape definitely adds some new complications for new case design. My first one fit well but was too slippery and wouldn't stay put on an angled wireless charging stand. Second one wasn't slippery but did not cover the sides correctly and was pulling away when I picked up the phone. Third one is on its way now. It doesn't look quite as nice as the first one did but it at least appears to have the side design that was missing from the second.

    Some apps bother me a bit with the edge display if they push text too close to the edge. I can then see color shift in the text which is a bit annoying. Some apps do get it right. The Kindle reading app has its own margin (adjustable) so it doesn't suffer. Pandora really did it well as you can see the edge of the previous album cover on the curved portion while the current cover is completely on the flat expanse.

    Neither of these issues are enough for me to regret going with the edge over the standard S7. The larger battery and slightly larger screen while still having comfortable one handed operation sealed the deal for me.

    I'm happy with the Edge.
    Battery life is stellar and the Black Onyx coupled with the Edge design looks nice and classy. I use it without a case at home and have a slim PU case for when I'm out and about to retain the look.

    A bit of theming from Samsung's theme app and Google Now Launcher installed along with an Icon changer and I'm not missing being a long term Nexus user yet.

    And as for the normal S7? It was never an option. The Edge makes it seem boring and size isn't an issue - the Edge doesn't feel like a big phone.

    Check out this case, it's a great tpu case that has a matte black back to avoid fingerprints. I dropped my phone yesterday and it protected it well despite the fact that the case is super thin.

    None, I've got the S6 edge, and while the S7 edge feels more comfortable, i would have liked it to stay at 5.1". But then we wouldn't have received the 3600 mah battery. I know there are many people who have complained about getting used to the edge screen. I took my time and tweaked my nova launcher and SwiftKey settings to get it where I have no issues. Once you get a case on, these accidental screen hits will dissappear. But if you can't get used to the edge screen, go for the S7. Either way, you can't go wrong.

    So what did you wind up doing, sfla99?!

    I ended up with the S7, was a grueling decision (i sat in the store for 2 hours) which I am not sure was the right move since I am torn up about it lol, true OCD.

    Battery And everything on my edge was flawless, screen was even and perfect and battery was phenomenal I mean absurdly good, speaker Jack had zero issues, camera perfect, fit and finish were great.

    Only thing about it was that every time I picked it up I thought to myself, beautiful device but i wish it was a hair smaller as I am tired of large phones, I realize it's tiny for a 5.5" but it still made me say that every time.

    I have a battery phobia but the lowest battery I would see in the edge was like 40 percent (after like 5-6 hours SoT) and that was trying to run it down, if I can get the S7 to last the day (4-5 hours SoT) it will be fine.

    After tons of large phones in a row, One plus, 6 plus, G4, Note 5, 6s plus then to S7 edge, I just feel like I wanted something a little more pocketable for a little while.

    That and I am a phone junkie and switch every six months haha

    I am sure in a week I am going to regret this but the damage is done lol.

    If they would have made a 5.5" regular S7, I would have gotten that.
