    So happy with my decision to keep my S7 Edge. lol

    I've got my phone set up just the way I want it, and this thing runs like a dream. Same camera, larger battery. Life is good.

    Almost caved in, and might someday, but not now.
    It's not worth it at all in my opinion, as i have the S7E, i can't find a single major reason to "upgrade" to the note.

    If they come with better speakers, better DAC(more for SD version, Exynos has good one) some new camera features, larger battery and larger screen, then we might talk... Zenfone 3 looks good tbh.

    I currently don't have either device but trying to decide on one over the other and the Note would end up being ~$120 more than S7E in my case, is it worth it for S-pen/iris scanner/extra 32Gb base mem/"newer" device that won't be refreshed for a year vs the 6-7 months until the S8.

    If it helps the S7E I would be getting is the Exynos and Note 7 would be SD820.

    I want to get the S7E because it's cheaper but afraid I will regret it.

    There is one major reason to get the Note 7 over the S7 Edge, its the SPen. So it you love taking notes naturally at home or work, or an artist (As some of my friends have bought this to design their work) then good for you. Otherwise S7 edge is more than enough.

    For me, I loved the SPen and If had deeper pockets, I would have surely switch to the Note 7.

    Go for the Note 7 then. Its more than worth it price and features.

    I sold my S7 Edge and have the Note 7 now. Very glad I did it... but I am an S-Pen user from previous notes so some may not agree .

    I'm an active forex trader so my decision weighed heavily on whether I use that pen or not. I take a lot of screenshots to draw indicators and other things so I feel like that pen would really make my trading easier.

    I'm also on the 2-year payment plan through Verizon and had already paid off half my phone so I only had to pay for the tax fees of about $60 to upgrade.

    I went with black since it is actually black. Looks real slick .

    I see. Black does look real slick I've had black phones my entire life, tried out white once on the Note 4(never again). The blue looks really unique so that's what I got this time. No skins for it either.

    Time to start shopping for some new cases....looking at this one right now: https://www.amazon.com/Zizo-Tempered...cUvbUpU5346661

    When it drops to £600 perhaps I will. I let others do the 'in the field testing' first and if there are no serious problems ... :-)

    That pen would be handy.

    Soft glass could be a potential problem so far but it is probably just one of the usual OCD reactions you normally get when something has been released.

    Meanwhile I just enjoy using my absolutely superb Edge which has been faultless. Fantastic phone.

    I am. The S7 edge is a great device. Even though the Note is extremely close to the edge for me the extra features are worth it. I love the pen. I love the feel. And many others.

    I understand though those who don't think it's worth spending the extra money.
    Most people know the value of money which you clearly demonstrate that you don't. You are clearly a college student by that statement.

    Why not put your music on an sd card?
    Same boat with nearly a third of my storage taken up by spotify. But I can't go sd card because I'm using it dual sim. But then I still got 8GB free without any app left to install for me that I need, and actually quite a few installed that I don't use anymore so. I think I'm good.

    Uh I'm no college student, and gainfully employed.... And I'm moving from S7 Edge to the Note 7. I'm doing that because first of all, I use my pen a lot on my Surface Pro 4 so I know I will use it a lot on a phone. Secondly, it addresses most of my main complaints with the S7 Edge. These were: not enough on-board storage for me, I missed the larger 5.7 inch screen I had before getting the S7 Edge (yes, I noticed the difference), and I'm constantly accidentally triggering actions when I touch the screen edge.... Which is supposedly not an issue with the Note 7.

    Sorry I am not usually happy when I drink. Had a few too many beers last night. Thank you for being very mature and not showing any reaction to my negatively. With that said, my point stand - you sir or mam are clearly not a college student

    I played with the Note today and at least physically it's exactly the same as the S7 Edge. Same exact size but slightly smaller bezel to make the screen a little bigger. I was actually disappointed and saw no need to upgrade...

    I f I were a rich person buying every new phone that came out sure I'd get it but I'm barely doing just fine with 32gb But I pretty much used up all the 32gb thanks to half the storage being taken up by downloaded music from spotify
    So why not slip an SD Card into the slot....
    All my Spotify downloads are on mine.....
