    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?

    Well, the S7 edge was new like 5 months ago. I don't see any incentive to spend $859 to get the Note 7 from the S7 edge. They both have (mostly) the same features. Might as well wait for the S8.

    Coming from the S7 Edge I think I will be. At first I didn't but once I checked it out I decided to try and make the necessary arrangements to get one. I think it is going to be a better upgrade than most think now.

    I was tempted, but ultimately decided to keep my S7 Edge. This new Note blew me away when I played with it at Best Buy. But.... so did the S7 Edge just 5 or so months ago. So I fear if I upgraded I would just be doing so to have the newest.

    I don't need the larger screen, as my current phone has a better screen size to battery ratio. And the S-Pen is awesome, but not a need for me.

    Same..this is the first Samsung phone I actually like. Played with the Note, and aside from the S-Pen and the iris scanner, I have no interest and those 2 things alone are not enough to make me switch

    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.

    I replaced my note 4 with an s7e and honestly the size of this device is perfect for one handed usability. Don't think I'll be getting a note 7 anytime soon.

    I wasn't going to at first until I seen all of the differences. It's more than just adding an s-pen and iris scanner. It's alot more to it. I sold my S7Edge to my buddy and using my backup Note 4 for now.

    I'm glad we got this out of the way. In the past I only bought Note devices because of the bigger screen and/or the better camera. But with the screen sizes being very similar and the cameras being the same I guess there is no reason for me to upgrade!

    Yes, mostly because I'm switching carriers. Looking forward to the Note's ergonomics, I find it hard to hold onto the edge without a case.

    Is no one else finding themselves cramped by the 32gb of storage on the S7e? I've thought about upgrading just for the ability to get a 64gb phone, but man, the price is steep.

    That is the main reason I am getting it. I have about 5gb left and haven't installed any of my games I usually play which are about 1-2 GB a piece. I have a 200gb card for media. Should be set.

    When I was deciding to get the S7 edge I took a risk and it was a good risk because I had a slight feeling the Note 7 was going to have better performance a even bigger battery and a slightly better camera but I was like they are probably gonna do what they did with the note 5 so I took the chance with the S7 edge. I came from a Note 3 and didn't exactly use the s pen much. I sorta regret getting the S7 edge because the Note 7 promotions but those are small things. I was also at the time wanting to wait for HTC 10 but that gear VR promo at the time told me to just get the S7 and I don't regret it.

    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

    I'll be switching over. I don't know if it's my lack of loyalty, but I've noticed my battery drains so quickly now. Usually by 12 pm I'm down to 30 or 20 something percent. Before I'd be resting comfortably at 50 something percent or more.

    Why not put your music on an sd card?

    Im an ex s7 user... And im moving to note 7 for the 64gb storage.
    I had used my s7 for 2weeks impressive but 32gb internal is too limiting for me I have 128gb sd but not all apps I can move to external..... I got my s7 for Sing$700 and I was able to sell again at Sing$680... Not much losses for me anyway....

    I really love my s7 Edge but the Note is tempting, I've had one before and although I didn't use the s-pen everyday, when I did use it came in handy. Still undecided.

    I was curious to see what the Note 7 would bring to the table, but after watching the unveiling, the main differences between the S7 Edge that I gathered are:
    1. Iris Scanner
    2. S Pen
    3. Slightly bigger screen (0.2 inches)
    4. Slightly smaller battery (3500mAh vs 3600mAh)

    The first three aren't enough to entice me to switch, and the last one, even though it is only a small difference, would be enough to keep me from switching even if the first three enticed me enough to consider it.

    So yeah, I'll be sticking with my S7 Edge until the S8 makes its grand entrance...

    No. There is nothing that sparks interest to me with the note7 compared to the s7 edge. Plus i love the the size and shape of the s7e. Very happy with it. No sense in going crazy to upgrade to basically the same device (especially once we get upgraded grace). Spen does nothing for me and iris scanner is too new to be reliably used every day (IMO)
