    I switched from the Nexus 6P to the S7 Edge. Ultimately, I prefer the S7 Edge, but I still love the Nexus. It is so damn quick. Anyway, for a short period I kept both, playing around a bit with Android N. But I decided I could still get $400 or so for the Nexus, which I got for $500 a few months ago, so worth selling/need the money.

    Overall I can see why journalists compare the two. The both have very strong points going for them.

    Only reason I can see going with a nexus over the edge is if you absolutely must have stock and plan to keep the phone long enough to get version updates.

    Other than that the edge just has far too may advantages over the nexus. 820, SD, IP68, Wireless Charge, camera (yes and no), design and former factor smoke the 6p, smaller footprint, better battery.

    Did I miss anything else, throw Google keyboard, Google now and the android 6.0 theme on and you are mostly there from a visual standpoint.

    Google gets the updates 1/2 a year ahead of Samsung, so you just need to keep a phone for 6 months and then the 6p will be on Android N while the S7 Edge waits for 3/2017 to get Android N.

    The 6p also has better worldwide LTE band support.

    But the S7 Edge has a better display too, it can boost up to 800 nits or so making it useable in daylight sun, while the 6p has a very dim display, can not do an overboots over 350 nits.

    There are pros and cons on both sides but they are both excellent phones and I honestly believe you can't go wrong with either one. We're lucky we have options like these.

    The problem with my S7 EDGE is that it's already two months behind in terms of updates. Got neither the February not the March security update from Swisscom. Would have bought unbranded, but Swisscom doesn't support WiFi calling and VoLTE on unbranded phones :-/

    Personally I don't keep my phones long enough to worry about the next software update. So for me if I'm happy with what version the phone currently has I'm fine. I will end up purchasing a new phone anyway down the road. 😀

    The timing here was good. I just got the update to April security patch last night. This is on T-Mobile in the US.

    Exactly. Who needs updates. Just buy the newest phone. At least it always works for me.

    People who want the latest and the greatest that's who I know a guy who spends a thousand dollars every year on softball bats. My sister does the same with tennis racquets. So you can't tell someone how to spend their money. Do you really need a 77,000 Lexus when you can buy a 18,000 Honda Civic. To each his/her own.

    I bought my Nexus 6P for $500, and sold it for $420 after 4 months. I also got the BOGO on the S7 Edge, with 2 years of Netflix, two Gear VRs, which I just sold for $120 total (I already had one), etc. So I made out pretty well.

    I wish I could sell my 6P locally, but I live in such a rural area that people don't get the gravity of a decent phone.

    I sold mine on swappa.com. It's where I go to sell and sometimes buy phones. Great site for doing that.

    I know. It's just all the fees I hate. I'd rather show up in a well lit area and hand off the glory.

    Swappa charges $10 and Paypal charges 3%, it's about $40 at most in fees and $10 in shipping. You are out $30-50 for every transaction so it's not bad at all.

    Even thought I just got my Nexus 6P in January for $500 the aura of the Galaxy S7 Edge was too strong to stay away from. In the end sold the 6P for $350 and put that towards the extremely expensive $795 S7 Edge.

    The 6P was a good phone, but the thing that drove me crazy was the size. I wasn't excited about wielding the large 6P before I got it but got but preferred it over the 5X because of the spec and metal build boost. I just never could get a hang on the large size of the 6P which even towers over the cumbersome iPhone 6s Plus. Another thing that really disappointed me about the Nexus was the throttling with the 810 processor. My unit came with a dent by the plastic panel and over spray by the visor and the black metal bezel by the screen accumulated three visible dents even with a case on.

    I love the S7 Edge, plain and simple. A lot easier to hold, curved screen gives an infinity display effect, SD support, water resistant, wireless charging, dual screen apps, slighter better display, better battery life, better camera IMO, and while the Samsung features are hit or miss I enjoy the collection you get with the phone.

    Sold my 6P on Swappa and this was the first time I had sold a phone on there. Usually I sell on Craigslist which is defiantly more preferable to sellers. Swappa has a great community and safeguards for buyers but for sellers you kind of get raked over the coals. First there is a $10 fee which isn't bad. You can't meet people locally so everything much be shipped which the seller assumes. So that could be $5-$30 depending on how you send it. The seller is also reasonable for the item even it arrives broken, stolen, or lost in transit so some insurance is highly recommended. Paypal is required payment of choice which is fine besides Paypal charges a 2.9% transaction fee and .30 cents. On top of that a buyer in theory could claim he/she never received a packaged (if the package doesn't require signature) or say the item arrived broken and do a charge back leaving the seller in the dark. I listed my 6P for $410 dropped it to $390 to sell asap. Swappa took $10, Paypal took $21.32, and sending it USPS priority with $50 insurance costed 13.45.

    Overall Craigslist I was getting offers of $350 and while sometimes it is a headache meeting up with sketchy people it would have been cash and I would have had it that second. Overall if you do sell something on Swappa I would suggest making the price 5%-10% higher to deal with all these fees

    Same applies to Pixel XL vs. S7 Edge.
