    Just bought mine at Costco today, trading in my Note5. I cannot believe the deals Verizon are offering.
    This $792 (msrp) phone will cost me $4.17/mo. for 24 months with all the credits allowed.
    I have only had my Note5 for 13 months, and wasn't looking to buy a new phone, but when I saw this deal,
    I had to buy it. I got the black version, and have ordered an Otterbox for it. My Note5 Otterbox was just a little too big.
    I haven't even made a call yet, as it is sitting on my quick charging pad. Sure is taking a long time to charge, but I like
    the fact that this battery is 20% larger than the N5. Hopefully it will stay hold the charge longer.
    BTW... included in this deal was the Gear VR headset. I don't know if this is special just for Costco, but I buy
    all my phones at Costco because they always have the best deals/offers.

    This is my 1st android phone so I'm still learning. Iphones are alot easier to learn. I'm frustrated trying to get my 7 edge to work right. Im always getting locked out of my phone. Says fingerprint no match. Tried getting my iTunes songs on this device and then you then have to download Go launcher app to use it which then makes you change your account set up, theme, etc. But the 2 biggest problems i dont.like is ...on easy mode you can't organize your icons so you have to search to find them. And the BIGGEST complaint is when you TRY to open an app, the ADS make it impossible to even use the app.!! That alone makes me want to throw it in the ocean !! I got so frustrated with all the ads popping up while i was trying to set up my accounts i needed to use , that I just gave up! iPhone never had ads pop up to the extreme that you couldn't use your opened app! Now I'm only using the phone for emergency calls and texts. And yes ... I've spent hours and hours trying to fix problems. Even reset the phone to factory specs. If there's a certain set up app I could use that doesnt have ads popping up every 2 seconds I may be able to use this phone after all
    Check out the Block-This app. It's not on the play store, so you have to side load it. Not hard to do at all. Gets rid of 99.9% of the ads on my phone. And you don't have to root to use it.

    I've had mine about a month now. Couldn't be more impressed with it. Outstanding battery life, awesome screen and super fluid/fast with no lag. I was really expecting to be somewhat disappointed after the N7, and I do miss the s-pen for sure, but this phone has really impressed me so far.

    In the 13 months I owned my N5, I didn't use S pen once. Just like on this phone, I don't see myself using the edge features.
    I'll check out the block-this link you sent... thanks.

    I've had the phone about 3 weeks, love the screen n the weight. However, the battery cannot hold a candle to the iPhone 7 plus. I'm an android guy but the battery on the iPhone has me going back to it.

    ^^^^

    This, I own both (currently using the S7e) but under normal every day use the IP7+ is noticeably better on battery.

    I'm still torn tbh, love the feel of the S7E and that it offers the same size screen as the 7+ in a much smaller footprint. On the flip side though I do like the integrated feel of iOS and other aspects such as the dual lens camera and general slickness of 3rd party apps.

    I upgraded from the Note 4 and what surprised me most was the massive improvement in the LTE performance. I get a great signal with the S7 Edge in places where the Note 4 got little or no phone signal at all (including 3G). I get 50+Mbps download speed in places where my Note 4 couldn't update email. (Or was my Note 4 defective?)

    I found that the fast charging pad was not near as fast as the charging cable, which is indeed fast. Disappointing, but it's still easy to set on the pad when not in a hurry. I actually have stopped using the pad as much after getting the tech21 cover which does not connect without removing the cover. The pad may work better with future phones/covers, so def keeping it handy.

    A case is an absolute MUST! I felt very uneasy holding it before I got a Spigen "case". It's just a slim, hard rubber slip-on but has edges raised enough to somewhat protect the screen. Only costs a couple of $, it should come with one.

    Haven't really found the edge display useful.

    Much faster and has greater capacity than my G5, no dumb usb port cover to break off either.

    Having an issue with voice typing all of a sudden... otherwise, I like it.

    I have been on the S7 Edge for a wile now and hardware is fine but as most are now on Nuggart in the uk on unbranded phones were stuck on marshmellow still, all networks are still on 6.0.1
    Now i no before this get the oh you can flash it your self crew yes we no but thats not the point.
    Its a flagship phone but samsung seem to think they can hold back a rom to sell another device
    The phones in the uk on BTU came direct from samsung so these were press realise and paid for from there website
    The stock S7 has now got this
    So were is it and why does it take samsung so long
    All we as users get is its being rolled out
    Why does it need so many differant veriations when google only has one rom for there phones

    FWIW, the price of the 7 Edge has dropped $100 in price on both the Samsung site and Verizon site. Plus you get a 128 GB memory card from Samsung.

    While I do not use the edge apps (although I have the People edge loaded up with my most used contacts), I LOVE having a screen that size with no bezel. Performance is excellent, battery life very good (with Power Saving on), camera excellent. I would be surprised if I got another phone; I know, that sounds crazy, but I cannot think of a reason to "upgrade" from this one. My brother-in-law is still using his S3 and just shrugs when I ask if he's ever going to upgrade. Go figure. Samsung got it right with this one, a nice bounce back from the Note 7 debacle. And yes, put this beauty in a case. I know, it'll hide its sleek good looks, but it's just too slick to hold safely. Every so often I take it out of mine just to ogle it.

    Got a ATT version of S7 Edge on cheap. I'm pleasantly surprised how good it is. I really like the size and the edge screen hasn't been that bad. I don't use any of the edge apps and I thought I would get distracted/annoyed by the edge screen, but that hasn't been the case. And after the nougat update, it's running better. Battery life is amazing, getting 4 hours of SOT with about 30% battery still left. To me that's great. Only complaint is the difficulty finding a good tempered glass screen protector. Other than that, I really like this phone. I also have an Honor 8 that I've been going back and forth. Best two phones of 2016.

    I got my S7edge about three days ago, and it's all good. It runs great on Tmo, but i'd like some feedback about the upgrade to 7.0. Have their been any major problems? Thanks for any help.

    Did the upgrade to 7.0. Absolutely no problems. Stock email, msg, and calendar apps work better that my "third party" ones. I've NEVER gotten my hotmail faster than with the stock email app. It's all good.

    I use the stock email also. Personally I try to keep as much as I can stock because I don't want to bog down my phone with 3rd party apps. I will go with 3rd party apps if I find that it work better than stock though.

    I have similar thoughts as you. I do use the Gmail app though because of it's​ easiness in archiving. If I used email services​ other than just Gmail I would probably just use the stock email app, it does everything I need an email app to do.

    I am pretty satisfied with Samsung's stock apps and use them for everything else. I also don't install Facebook, Twitter or other similar apps, I just use the browser.

    Yeah I got rid of Twitter. There were too many people posting quotes of the day trying to get likes or some kind of response. That got irritating.

    I find Facebook irritating, however, there are certain occasions where I have to use it:-(

    Same here. I don't use it as much as I used to. I also don't get caught up in the " Friend" count.

    I've found that the stock email app gets me my hotmail faster than any third party app that i've ever used. It comes with Microsoft Active Sync, which is great. Even the texting app is as good as Textra, although it doesn't have some of the extras(like adding a signature to the end of a msg). Since deleting most of my third party apps, which i really didn't need, my battery life has greatly improved. I only use a gallery app and ES file explorer, from the play store. That's it.

    Im not too big on 3rd party apps as long as the stock one is good. It would be nice if duplicate apps were removed i.e. email, browser, AI type apps. We don't need 2 of the same app.
