    I, for 1, feel great that I got the S7 edge and didnt wait for the note 7. Instead of the note having a 4000 mah battery it'll have the 3600, only 64gb of on-board storage not 256, and the same 820 chip we've got in our wonderful s7edge handsets and not the 830. What else will change before it launches. We got the better deal.

    I will most likely be switching. 64 GB base > 32 GB base .. Especially if it has the SD cards support like the S7 Edge. The battery .. I would like 4k but if it is 3600 that is still fine.

    You might want to think about the unlocked, carrier free, U.S. models for the S7 & S7 Edge, launched today. No carrier branding or bloatware. Unlocked bootloader and updated directly by Samsung. See...

    Samsung officially offers the S7 unlocked with full support for ALL major USA carriers

    I love my S7 Edge except for one thing, the physical home button. I have had the screen buttons for so long I did not realize how big a step backward the physical button would be. The rest of the Samsung universe is just learning. But that damn button ... I should state that I like to use a stylus when home and having to use my finger to press that button disrupts the flow.

    I saw that, but can someone tell me is there an advantage to getting the u.s. unlocked version rather than spending $200 less to order the international unlocked version from Amazon?

    You're lucky. No Best Buy within 250 miles from me had one. Did you check stock online first or just walked in and bought one?

    I have a T-Mobile S7 edge and they are the least as far as bloatware from carriers. What advantage do you see with the unlocked version?

    Yeah they have least bloat ware and no ugly carrier logo but still a carrier version. Personally it's still T-Mobile apps, you can't uninstall (only disable), they have certain Samsung features turned off like ability to have all apps on home screen (personally won't do but opposed to carrier's deciding what features should exist on phone). Also T-Mobile recently is very slow in OS updates.

    Bottom line for me personally I don't like carrier devices and believe they should just be dumb pipes concentrating on network rather than messing with device hardware and software. I'm looking at the Apple model and commend them for treating the carrier's like the way they should be.

    I'm with you on T-Mobile updates. My S7 edge is still running May Android security patch. It's July already. Im going to check my local Best Buy. They show the S7 in stock. Maybe I will get lucky. Does your unlocked version have the June security patch?

    As of now still showing May in this as well, not sure if they will push one soon since this got released today. We have to see how Samsung treats their unlocked version compared to carrier versions. All other OEMs like HTC, Motorola usually push updates pretty quick to the non carrier models so we can only hope Samsung to be the same since they don't need any carrier approval on this model. Only time will tell.

    Yep the T-Mobile one is on May still. The other carriers got the June one with other improvements. Maybe T-Mobile is running into a snag with something? IDK. It does suck though .

    I feel great about the choice. I haven't been following much about the Note 7, but as far as I'm concerned the phone serves all of my needs from it. I previously came from a Note device and didn't use the pen much so it's no biggie. I wish that Samsung will release a new Note 8.0 though.

    Originally wanted to purchase the Galaxy S7 edge when my LG G4 started crapping the bricks in a similar manner to my first G4, which died to the bootloop issue earlier.

    However, when I heard of a Note 7 (thought to be the Note 6 at the time), I decided to wait for it and switched back to my HTC One M7 during the wait. Sure, I could buy an S7e right now and live happy as the Note will likely have minor changes compared to the S7e that don't really impact the experience, but I'm planning to use this one for 3 years or more, so I want the very best I can get this year. Also, that S Pen.

    One thing I noticed that since the new Note will mostly likely have a dual edge screen, there isn't much of a difference between the S7 Edge and Note 7 except a slightly larger screen, S-pen, and an iris scanner. Which leads me to thinking that if Samsung does the same thing for S8 Edge and Note 8, there isn't really a point of purchasing the S8 Edge since the Note 8 has the same features and more. I wonder how will Samung make the S8 Edge unique enough to buy it instead of waiting for the Note 8?

    For me, the S7e is already a little too large so I would not be interested in anything larger. I have no need for S-pen or an iris scanner so the Note 8 would not be something I would upgrade to.

    Is your Titanium Silver? It doesn't look like they are making a Black Onyx unlocked.

    Do you think it's worth it to get the unlocked if I already have a T-Mobile version?

    That's individual preference, for me yes. There isn't much difference other than no carrier bloat. If that doesn't bother you stay with T-Mobile version. Also unlocked version theoretically should get Android N or OS updates faster than carrier version. But depends on Samsung and we don't know if that will be the case.
