    Turned in my replacement Note 7 in to AT&T 2 days ago and got the S 7 Edge. This is the phone I used while waiting for the replacement Note 7 and I was impressed by it. I was really impressed by he battery life on this phone. I do miss the Note 7, but I am happy with the 7 Edge.

    Besides, the Edge will work as a stop gap till next year's flagships arrive.

    And.. IMO still the best overall camera and screen on the market.

    I'm currently sporting the Cy Te UI theme on mine, and it's stunning. No other phone ( sans Note) matches it.

    Same here. Picked mine up last night at Costco.

    I've encountered an issue using Smart Switch. When I went to load the backup that I took for the Note 7 into the S7 Edge, I was unable to select 'Samsung Notes'. It was greyed out.

    How can I load 'Samsung Notes' from the Note 7 backup ?

    Another Note 7 transplant. Wanted the Edge in black but all they had was silver or the gold so I went with Silver. Still syncing all my apps. Not a bad phone but I will miss the Note 7 a lot.

    I had the S7 Edge less than 24 hours. A couple hours ago today I switched it for a Note 5. I need my Note fix.

    I played with a Note 5 while at Best Buy today and with the very small amount of time I had with it I didn't notice any obvious differences...seemed speedy, S Notes wasn't gimped at all...what is it that makes it so "inferior"? I think it's available in a 64G model (no memory card), which is definitely a bummer but not a deal breaker. Is the battery life lousy or something?

    I am curious about a few things if anyone knows.

    Samsung Pay. Is the same version on the S7 edge as the Note 7 and did unused gift cards reload from the N7?

    Themes, are you using any of your paid themes purchased on the Note 7?

    Thanks!

    OK - going to swap out for the S7 Edge tomorrow..

    Can I .....
    • Use KNOX
    • Water Resistance?
    • SD Card?
    • IRIS Scan? I know it doesnt :-P
    • Private Mode?
    • Camera, same as S7/N7 ?
    • Screen resolution compared to N7


    I will miss the S-Pen - But the Gear VR is just too much damn fun to play with. And personally I am not going to fault SAMSUNG, when the Note 8 comes out.......I will be 1st in Line

    But until then... To those "Original" S7 Edge owners, please be patient with us "Stylus Clingers" as we attempt to relocate and find a home.

    Also, do the Samsung wireless charging plates work with the S7 Edge? I am guessing yes.

    Samsung notes (note 7 exclusive for now) wouldn't load for me on the s7e so I went in the galaxy apps store and downloaded s notes. I could see all note 7 exclusive software coming to the s7, s7e and note 5 in the nougat update now that there is no more note 7.

    Yes to everything except Iris scanner. And the screen looks just as good, I think it actually has a higher pixel density then the note 7 because of the smaller screen. (not 100% on that)

    Note 5 is a great phone, I had it before the note 7/ S7 edge. Only problem was the battery is noticeably worse then the note 7 and S7 edge.

    Not hard to push the on/off button with the Otterbox case on it? I have a red Otterbox case on mine and the on/off button is stiff and hard to push. Maybe it is my weak hands!
    Not sure why your power button is hard to press.I have a Otterbox Defender case and the power button is easy to press.

    Same here, I just wish I had done it a few days earlier so I would have gotten the memory promo. I was able to get one from my Note 7 but my wife is going to be getting an S7 edge soon as well and I was hoping to get the memory for her to use.
    There are a few things I miss, but overall OK.

    I just returned my 2nd note 7 yesterday at tmobile and got this s7 edge. Loving it so far😃 I submitted for the 256 memory card promo. Also got another $10 Samsung pay visa prepaid credit and another $5 dunkin donuts credit. Have a black OtterBox on it (open screen design). This case is great and makes holding it feel secure and easier with a frame on the edges
    swapped out my Note 7 today,, like the edge so far but will miss my s pen... Wonder if Note functionality could be added to the edge and come out with a case to hold a stylus.

    Just swapped my Note 7 for S7E today....I loved my N7 but glad ordeal is behind me. So far I think I'll get used to the form factor. I also submitted for the SD Card promotion and just used purchase date of 10/9 and included receipt (which shows 10/11). Worst case it gets rejected....best case it slips through
