    A sickness without a cure. You can mitigate the symptoms, but it's just comfort measures. This is chronic.

    Ain't this the truth. I ended up upgrading too. I'm happy with my decision though. I needed the extra space. My s7e was telling me EVERY day that I needed more space. I had moved everything I could to the SD card so I was pretty much stuck.

    654GB + 256GB SD Card should help out your issues significantly!!

    Also, you have ever considered using cloud type storage places like Dropbox? I usually move all my big stuff in there to free up space.

    Pretty excited guys. My phone is arriving tomorrow in Coral Blue. I dont know how I feel about using the phone unprotected though so I'll probably just look at it until my new case comes in.

    Yeah I use OneDrive because I've got like a TB of space with them. The problem was my apps.

    Understandable. I had a case waiting for as soon as I picked the device up lol.

    i think i'm going to get the note 7 after seeing it in person.
    i always like bigger screens, albeit it isnt much bigger. i like how the curved edge on the note just feels better in the hand, but then again i'll probably be using a case most the time. oh well.

    I got the coral blue Spigen Neo Hybrid and it is so dang complimentary to the phone. Very gorgeous and not bulky.

    I'm going to go to the store and see it in person before pulling the trigger. I need to see if it's worth the upgrade from my S7 edge. We are still in the pre-order stage in the UK. I've had the original note, the note 3 and the note 4. I do like the note.

    As tempting as it is, I am sticking to my S7E. I don't have the money to be spending on new phones every time they come out, for one, and two, I am still enjoying my phone so if there's nothing wrong with it, then there's no need for me to get a new one, especially since I just got this one a few months ago. Also, I got the Note 7 (Blue coral) for my youngest sister so at least I get to fiddle around with it either way lol but me, personally, I like the S series better.

    I switched from the potentially explosive Note 7 to the S7 Edge today, and so far I'm really impressed with this phone. I wasn't expecting to be this happy with it since I've been using Notes since the Note 2 came out, but this S7E is really nice. Battery recall aside, it just seems smoother overall in terms of performance. Just my two cents.

    Same here..
    From s7 > note7 >> s7 edge.

    After the recall I decided to just sell my note7. And buy the S7e.. Performance is smoother on the s7 edge.. Battery life I cant tell yet... Just got it yesterday.

    S7e is easier to hold. And more fluid performance.

    Yes, exactly, so much easier to hold & much more fluid.

    I have smallish hands and I like that I can use the S7e with one hand. The S7 would have been too small, but this is just right.

    Can you give examples of how the S7e is noticeably more fluid? I'm likely going to return my Note 7 as well and am curious how/why the S7e seems to be a better phone in terms of performance when they're both running almost identical hardware.

    They do have identical insides, however the Note seems to have a software issue causing lag for some, not all.

    This can be fixed in the Note with an update ( however I suspect that's on the back burner for now). Other than that both phones should run close to identical in terms of performance.

    I am still interested to move to the note. However, I will now wait until the 'safe' models have been out in the wild for some time. Mind, there are already talks about the S8 now. I use the camera a lot and hope for more resolution without sacrificing the low light performance.

    I have a feeling there will be heavy discounts on the Note soon to entice people to buy it after this fiasco so there will probably be some good deals.

    Meanwhile my S7E does a superb job.

    I'd expect that with identical insides plus more stuff running on the Note compared to the Edge, a slight lag when comparing may be apparent.

    I was able to check out the Note 7 in person yesterday at the Best Buy store.

    It's basically a S7E with a pen. I was not impressed by the size of the screen size as it was basically identical to the S7. With the S7 placed on top of the Note 7, the width is exactly the same. Screen size was like | | much bigger.

    When I tried to use the screenshot feature with the pen, I was hit by the "Screen Overlay" sign. The pens own overlay was conflicting with Note 7's best selling feature. Is that an incredibly stupid thing to overlook or what?

    As for me, I will not be updating to the Note 7.

    Any thoughts?
    I did but moved back with the whole recall going on. Don't think I'll go back to the note. Any other device I get this year will be by another manufacturer.

    I love my S7 Edge. I am a fan of Nokia until the light blue nokia n70 or something, try iphone 4 then note 2, note 4. Which never use the s pen. So i try iphone 6 plus due to the hype being 1st 5.5 iphone before coming back to S7 Edge.

    Because its look better outside, the amoled screen, low light camera, better battery life, big size sdcard...

    Im not sure whether i will move back to iphone 7 pro...

    Customising and work like pc drag and paste make it so easy.

    The last on 6 plus jailbreak -> changing theme were still not as much as the days when iphone 4 is.

    On android samsung. Does it so easily by simply visiting Play Store.

    Hope i will not be swayed.

    Scrolling is smoother. Stuff (opening apps, switching tasks, responsiveness) just seems quicker. I was one of those people posting in the "this lag is unfreaking believable" Note 7 forum. My lag wasn't "unfreaking believable," but it was quite a bit slower and more stutter-y than my Note 5. I listened to the advice and suggestions of some other users/ambassadors and was able to speed it up quite a bit after doing a reset and not using smart switch or syncing any app downloads automatically. After that, I was more or less content with the phone.

    But, after using the S7E, it's just snappier. I really don't understand it either since it's the same hardware, and the same version of marshmallow. The system settings interface is quite a bit different, though, so there are some differences going on somewhere.

    Since I have JOD with T-Mobile, I really was just going to use this phone until the replacement N7s came out. But I like it better than the N7 that I had so I'm going to keep it. Please note: I can't speak to the N7 anyone else received and how it may have performed - a lot of people over on the N7 threads reported quick phones. But mine never performed better than my N5 -- at first it was worse, then, after the 2nd reset it became about equal.

    Sorry, this still isn't very concrete. Here's one: with the N7, I would notice things like the keyboard freezing and then all the sudden three keys would pop-up/light up at the same time. Weird, glitchy stuff like that.
