    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?

    If I were buying on contract or paying full price, I would absolutely get the Note 7 over the S7 Edge.

    It's basically a slightly updated version of the S7edge with a stylus and USB-C. Looks like Samsung will have to heavily discount the S7edge to move them off store shelves. Nevertheless I'm still happy with my S7edge since I did the BOGO deal from At&t.

    I honestly don't see the purpose of the Edge now.

    yeah, if you have not got the S7 Edge yet, then you should return it and get the Note 7.

    I have had the S7 Edge since launch. I was fully planning on getting the Note 7 until i saw it was just the same phone. The stylus would be nice, but not worth the cost of switching really. My S7 Edge still runs like a champ though

    I don't see the purpose of releasing the Note 7 now honestly. I feel like they should have waited to do a slight spec bump to differentiate. It kind of cannibalizes their sales of the S7 Edge. I feel like they should have released something that people who are Samsung fans but have not bought the S7 or S7E yet would buy instead because of the differences. The Iris scanner is a cool feature but I like the fingerprint reader better honestly as I am not always looking directly at my phone when I unlock it, and so I would likely just use the FP Scanner. I think the Note 7 will be a good seller and I think it will be quite the phone, but I am not convinced it is much more of an upgrade than the S7E. I will of course have to play with it to get my full opinion and will still probably plot to get it.

    I don't think the note 7 is meant for people that have the s7 edge, that doesn't make any sense. The note 5 had the same specs as the s6 with a slight bump in ram thats it.
    With phones like the moto g running marshmallow there's no reason to upgrade the hardware yet.
    That being said, the 2016 Nexus might have that new 821 soc which again isn't going to break records aside from AnTuTu lol which to be honest is quite pointless.

    S7 Edge is still beautiful, utilizes the bezels and curves really well making a large phone look smaller and for very well to work with your hands.

    And, if you are not a S-Pen user, paying that premium for those features doesn't make sense.

    Given the smaller battery, identical processor, and larger size of the Note 7, I'd say that the S7 edge will probably get better battery life.

    I didn't realize it was a smaller battery. Guess they had to make room for the stylus and iris scanner somehow.

    I specifically chose the S7E over the S7 for the bigger battery (I have the edgy stuff turned off). So, no, a smaller battery is no upgrade to me.

    Surely 100mah wouldn't make an appreciable difference. For a bit larger screen I'd be happy to keep it on the charger for a few extra minutes.

    Yep, they have edge features just like S7E.

    I am happy that I got my S7 Edge. I've known about the possible Note upgrade when I purchased my S7 Edge and I am glad I went through with it. My youngest sister, however, wants the Note 7 (she currently owns an iPhone 5S) so for her, it's justifiable to get the Note (especially since she loves to draw). For what I use my phone for, the Note wouldn't have been practical. Sure, it's a slightly bigger screen than the S7 Edge, but the S7 Edge is already the largest screen size phone I have owned by far and, to be honest, it's a perfect size for me. I guess what I'm trying to say is that every person has their preference. I love Samsung phones, but I prefer the S series over the Note while my sister would much rather have the Note over my edge. Samsung creates phones for pretty much every taste. It's good that they give people the option of choice.

    we have root on the s7/e now, though...

    not sure how long it will take to see that on the note 7 unless another engineering kernel is leaked

    If size is a criteria I would argue they are ostensibly undifferentiated. Accordingly, if a choice is available I don't know why one would choose the s7e since you're getting some additional trinkets on the n7. The price difference appears to be nominal.

    Screen is too big. S7 edge is about as large as I would want to go with a phone. Plus the upgrade isn't worth it, hardware in the note 7 is the same, but smaller battery. No brainer for me.

    I stretched my budget buying the S7E so no way was I going to pay extra for an s-pen and a fraction of a bigger screen size. If the Note7 had 6GB of ram or something...maybe!

    Maybe because not every single person wants to have a Note. I don't find interest in it because I don't care for the s-pen and besides according to battery stats my phone has a bigger battery so that's a win in my part. Even if I had to choose between the note 7 and the s7e I still would go with the s7edge. What the note offers is not worth the extra money for me when the s7e would do exactly what I want and need it to. Everyone has their preference and I am glad samsung made the s7e it's the phone I wanted from Samsung. The additional trinkets is useless to me because I never would utilize it

    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.

    That larger screen is also going to use more juice.

    For you the larger screen is an improvement, for me it isn't.
