    Slightly larger screen that may actually improve handling over the s7e because of the design changes, gorilla 5, usb-c benefits, updated software, iris scanner etc arguably is worth the extra 40 or 50 bucks. I believe the notes have better resale as well.
    Do you own Samsung stock or something? You sure are pushing the hard sell.

    A couple of us have very specifically told you more than once why we prefer the S7E. That doesn't mean we hate the Note 7, or you.

    My boyfriend is going to get the note 7, I have the S7edge. Note 7 is too large for me. Basically the exact same specs but a smaller battery and spen. Which I never used on my note 5 lol its all subjective preference and you are most comfortable using and what suits your needs the most. Just because it was released 4 months better doesn't mean its better though. To me it's basically my phone plus a pen lol

    Doubt about the resale value. Note series is a niche market. Not everyone wants a Note.

    wish I did buy stock in them long ago, lol. Appreciate all of the opinions although for me now that I've seen the comparisons I'm not understanding how a 4mm taller device or nominally smaller battery could make a difference given some of the updated or additional features...but that's my opinion. Obviously Samsung doesn't agree with me and they are more likely to side with you i.e. they do in fact see differentiation beyond the spen hence the two models. I do think that if I were vested in a s7e the n7 wouldn't be a worthy upgrade.

    I suppose it depends on the geography among other factors. In Vancouver the n5 seem to garnering a bit more than the 6e if that is any indication.

    If I didn't already have the GS7E, I would've bought the Note 7 ONLY if it had the new microSD technology. All the other new or updated features, I don't really care for.

    I'll be upgrading to the GS8E most likely.

    If I didn't already have the S7 edge, I'd get the Note 7. I like the larger screen and it looks like the edge screen is easier to hold. The S-pen I could take or leave. I could see it giving up some battery life, though, which I would definitely not want to do. The edge just gets me through the day.

    If I didn't have an S7E right now and will be buying a phone I'd still go S7E.


    1. Coming from a Note, I hardly ever used the SPen. So paying for that again is a useless expense.

    2. The S7E will have a price decrease a week or 2 after the Note 7 officially launches, to move stocks. So the price difference will increase to more than just 50 bucks. Probably closer to 100 bucks or even more. So it's going to be more bang for buck.

    3. The Note 7 will eat more battery, otherwise you won't be using a number of the new features. The feature for the AOD notes itself would be an extra battery use. The bigger screen as well. The digitizer also is more power hungry due to it having smaller proprietary touch points to accomodate the S Pen. I'd expect it's battery life to be closer to that of the S7, than the Edge, in real life usage with all features turned on.

    4. Most of the software features will be introduced to the S7E anyway with a major update. Probably along with Android N. It's been a historical thing, that the S series also get the Note software eventually, except for hardware specific things. The best most visible example probably was that the S3 did not get released with multiwindow, but got it after the Note 2 launched with the feature.

    Basically, the Note 7 doesn't have anything to offer me that I find interestjng that I won't get from getting the cheaper S7. The bigger screen and S Pen aren't that attractive to me on a phone.

    I'm could return my S7e for a Note 7 right now if I wanted. I'm not going to because:

    -Battery life is huge for me. That extra battery size and smaller display in the S7e is glorious.

    -$80 premium over S7e

    -Extra stylus I won't use (and yes, I've owned Notes previously)

    -Preferable form factor and looks in S7e.

    I agree. I'm in the same boat as you, could return the s7 edge and get the note 7 but I won't. I think that the edge meets my needs better.

    They do but I think it's more to do with the larger display being worth more. The s6 edge plus and the note 5 have roughly the same resale value here in the UK. The s7 edge won't be worth much less as it's almost the same screen size.

    I got a factory unlocked US S7E last week for $770. I'm debating what to do now as like some of the note features - gorilla glass 5, software tweaks, more ergonomic?, may use s-pen. But it will be carrier locked which I hate as it limits my flexibility with international travel and adds bloatware. I also like the fact that the s7e looks great and is small enough for one hand use and pocket.

    Hmm decisions!!

    USB-C in the Note would definitely make me pick the S7 Edge if I'd a choice of the two. It's never been implemented properly and nothing is clear with it, so I'd like to avoid it as long as possible.

    Everyone has their preferences. The Note 7 looks like a great phone, but I still prefer my s7edge. Nothing will change my mind about that just like no one can change your mind about liking the Note series. The Note series are not for me answer it never will be no matter what it offers. I want a phone I will be happy with and I am happy with the S series. I don't understand why you are trying so hard to change our minds. You can like the Note 7. It doesn't mean that we have to want it. I knew about the new Note addition when I bought my s7edge and I still went and bought it and I'm glad I did. It's the perfect phone for me. Everyone has their preference and just because the Note 7 is coming out doesn't mean that everyone should go and buy it if they don't want to

    Really, deciding between both boils down to this.

    The Note7 is for those who really use the S Pen, want a slightly bigger screen, more storage and some of the new features, but it's mainly the S Pen.

    The S7e is for those who don't want an S Pen but still want a bigger screen. It's also cheaper than the Note and does have a slightly larger battery, though by a mere 100mAh.

    In a nutshell, Note7 if you can afford it and really use the S Pen. S7e if you don't want an S Pen but still want a large display at a lower price.

    For me, I'm going with the Note7 mainly due to the S Pen and some other nice stuff, but to those who don't really use the S Pen, I may be more inclined to recommend the S7 edge, unless they really want that 0.2" increase in screen size.

    PS: Some people still don't know this, but the main reason the Note's battery is slightly smaller is because the S Pen slot takes up quite a bit of space.

    Yeah same here if I hadn't brought the S7 Edge I would think of note 7...
    But just for S pen I would like to spend extra bugs..I have owned most of all note series from note 1,2 ,4 very happy with my S7 edge...
    Note specs are very similar to s7 edge..note 7 is more targeted to note fans and mainly who dint upgrade from note 4 to note 5 would love the note 7. Wonder what would be the Indian launch price ?

    I am sticking with my edge- normally i jump to the note but have decided i really like the size and the sleekness of this phone. Besides i never even used my Spens when i had the notes... never really had to. I will wait and see what the S series offers in the spring... cause it will blow the iphone away i know that much for sure 😀

    I think the benefits you posted upthread, for only 40 or 50 more bucks, are only benefits if I would use/appreciate them. While I would get some extra stuff on the N7, it by and large is stuff that doesn't appeal to me. Even the bigger screen is more a negative than a positive for my tastes.

    Trust me, I can be wooed by a shiny new releaee!

    Battery life is another reason to choose the S7E. Its why I have it instead of the S7. I have all the Edge-y stuff turned off.

    The ergonomic changes do intrigue me a bit. I find the Edge really difficult to hold comfortably and securely without a case.

    1. For people with small hands, the Edge is easier to hold and use.
    2. I really don't think I'd use the stylus much.
    3. The Note really isn't superior to the Edge in terms of performance or features (except for the pen).
    4. The Edge is a good bit cheaper.

    I would like to try the new software UI, though.

    I went to Best Buy to compare phones. For me, Note 7 is S7Edge with iris scanner and pen. The display is slightly smaller, I mean very slightly. I had every Note from 1-5, this note just doesn't speak to me. The Note used to be so much superior to the S series, but no so much anymore.

    New to Android and have a S7 Edge being delivered today but thinking of returning it.

    Based on the slightly updated specs of the Note 7 e.g gorilla 5, slightly larger screen, USB-C and the overall size has been shrunk down to be similar to that of the Edge why wouldn't someone go for the N7 over the Edge even if you never use the spen?

    For an upgrade I don't see what the benefit of having the Edge is now when you can get the Note?
    I was going to get the Note7, but I thought about it and decided I'm not going to. Those few extra features in the Note7 that aren't present in the S7 edge aren't worth paying full retail, IMO.
