    Hey just a heads up to anybody who might be going back to the Note 7, if you got a S7 or S7 Edge in the last couple of weeks be sure to claim your VR or SD card before returning it! So you can get you a nice little gift from Samsung for this whole debacle! I'm keeping my s7 edge and had purchased a last Gen Samsung vr for $37.00 on a BB online deal! Then I kept seeing ads for a new gear VR or SD card with purchase of s7/ edge. I already had got the SD card when I got my Note 7 in August, so I went to the Samsung promotion website and just figured I'd try it, entered in my imei for my s7 edge and uploaded the receipt and ordered the new gifted vr! It worked even though I brought the s7 edge prior to the promotion. I guess the date was close enough.
    I got the SD card. I wouldn't have much use for the VR, and I use the Defender case which is a pain to take off and all.

    Would you say the S7 Edge is a beast compared to the itoy 7 Plus? With the Edge you have 32gb plus with the memory card is 264gb and it still comes out close to the same price as the 32gb Iphone 7 Plus.

    I haven't used an iPhone 7 really, I played with one in the store for a very brief amount of time, I mean it's an iPhone. I've watched a lot of reviews and it seems like it's a little quicker than the Galaxy S7 edge because you know how it does run just a little smoother and quicker as expected because of the OS differences, but we're talking milliseconds differences. I saw a video where the iPhone 7 really destroyed the Galaxy S7 Edge when downloading a game or transferring data or something I can't remember exactly, I have to try to find it later.

    Other then that, I will say from a surface level viewpoint IMO, the Galaxy S7 edge has a better screen, aesthetically better looking hardware, more feature rich (wireless charging, vr capable, edge screen, aod, night clock, power saving tools, etc...) more open and enjoyable OS, better rear camera, and higher download speeds (except for when transferring data like on that video I was talking about).

    Are you talking about the youtube speed test between the Iphone 7 and Note 7 maybe? There is a speed test comparison and the iPhone 7 trashed the Note 7 big time in speed.

    Personally, and I say this as a previous iPhone/Android swinger for the past 5 years, I find Samsung's phones to be superior to iPhones these days. They didn't used to be, but as of the S6 going forward, I believe Samsung has become the true innovators. They are now about 2-3 years ahead of Apple.

    I DO think that iPhones run overall smoother than Android devices, but thats not enough for me nowadays.

    I don't think basing it just on the S-Pen is fair. The Note 7 has quite a lot more going for it than just the pen. The Grace UX is a major difference and imo is a much, much smoother OS than Touchwiz. The Iris Scanner is a game changer and works very well. The Note 7 is a lot easier to hold naked than the S7 Edge.

    The S7 Edge is a GREAT phone, no doubt about it, but I'd have to give the edge (no pun intended) to the Note 7.
    Grace ux is still touch wiz it's just the newer version of it.

    I was just informed by Samsung+ that my s7 edge is not subjected to the note 7 fire recall. Lol
    Crap I didn't mean to put my whole imei does that matter? It's crazy that you can't take a pic off that you upload.

    The edges were a pain as far as I'm concerned. I like the edges on this phone way better. Easier to use because it's a gentler slope.

    Well, it seems like you are in a tough situation here! You've already had the Note - maybe give the Edge a try for now and see how it goes?

    Awesome! My mom has an Edge (S6) and I really like it. I think it's my favourite "brand" of the Samsung Galaxy phones.

    Enjoy!

    Also if you already have the Edge and thinking about the Note 7, I would wait until Jan and see if the S8 Edge is out earlier as speculated. The S8 Edge will have better processor and maybe slightly better screen as the Note 7. I would think many Note 7 users will switch to the S8 Edge. That is how it was this year when the S7 Edge came out.

    Thanks for this! I ordered as well, it's been hard trying to find a generic, universal fine point stylus!
    Any feedback on these stylus? Thanks.

    Obviously they aren't going to be an SPen, but so far, I'm able to write notes on my edge with them. They're working great for me, since making lists and notes were about all I did with the spen. I bought the thinner rubber ones, and I also tried the ones with the plastic disk that are supposed to write like a pen. However, those ones don't glide over my screen protector like the rubber ones do. So I actually prefer the rubber ones, even though they aren't quite as precise.

    It's hit or miss, sometimes it works well other times there's many unregistered swipes. I did pull up an s-note memo that I originally wrote using the Note 7 when I had it and wrote on the same page with my s7 edge and the fine point stylus. MY Writing was nearly identical. So when it's working it's not bad at all. However it can be frustrating when its not working smoothly.

    Yeah. It can be. But still worth it. I just love this phone.
