    I replaced my Note 7 with an S7 Edge yesterday and I like it. The screen is very nice, slightly narrower than the Note 7, but just a couple of millimeters. It's still really nice. I was really happy with the Note 7 and hated having to return it, but the S7 Edge is really close to it.

    I really didn't use the stylus, but I did lose 32 GB of storage from the Note 7. 32 GB is still plenty, especially since I can always add an SD card.

    The S7 Edge actually seems to have a lot more setting customizations than the Note 7, unless I just didn't find them on the Note. It's also solved the one nagging problem I had on the Note 7, that text to type was constantly messing up, no matter how well I enunciated. Text to type on the Edge works perfectly.

    The display on the Note 7 had a higher color gamut and higher brightness levels as well.
    Yes, it was significantly brighter, especially in direct sunlight.

    Yeah... I understand the frustration that many (former) Note 7 owners feel... My wife enjoyed hers while it lasted. But when it came time to go recallin', I asked her and she said that, while cool, she never really bothered with the S-Pen, but she loved that it would get her through her day easily, unlike the S7 she had previously.

    I'm sure the S7E, for her, will be a more than capable replacement. It's not like the S7 Edge is some three year old busted up phone, it was - and still is - one of the best on the market.

    We ordered ours yesterday and I was wondering when it was shipping, because that's what you normally do when you order something online.
    Then, I thought, what's the rush? The sooner I get it, the sooner my Note7 will be gone.
    So...I am patiently waiting for my S7E to deliver.

    I didn't notice lag on my Note 7, but I have to say the S7 Edge feels smoother. Maybe I did have lag.

    I've already reduced the animations to 0.5x and it's smooth as hell xD No lag at all.

    I have a question about the Smart lock on the S7E. On my Note 7 I could set to keep the phone unlocked when connected to my home network. I can't seem to find this option on the S7E?

    Smart Lock goes off of location or device, not network but you can find in Settings>Lock Screen and Security>Secure Lock Settings>Smart Lock

    And on Verizon we now have an FM radio. Didn't have that on the 7 that I knew of. Will be handy at NFL games to listen to commentary when there is no interest throughput at the stadium.

    NextRadio was available for download on the N7 also. Had it on the first and 2nd N7

    Edit: Also download it on S7edge loaner too

    I wonder if all carriers besides T-mobile has black.
    AT&T does. That's what I got.

    Wait what...I thought Verizon had this functionality turned off...

    So is it NextRadio that I need to install for TRUE FM radio capability (with headphones for the antenna, I know). Next FM brings up NextRadio in search results.

    Every time I think about downloading Next Radio, I don't bother. I use Bluetooth headphones 99% of the time. Sucks that you have to have headphones plugged in for antenna. 👎

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I know Samsung still makes them, it's just that T-Mo doesn't carry them anymore. They have the S7 in black and gold, and the S7 Edge in silver and gold. It was some wonky decision to only carry 2 colors of each device. I'm kinda wondering if they'll bring back the black in the S7 Edge now that all this is happening.
    At least you have some choice. In Canada, where I live, you can get S7E in any color as long as it's black. No choice. I got mine in black yesterday after I hugged my beloved N7 to say goodbye.

    Got my S7 Edge yesterday in silver. It looks nice enough and in many ways tries to act like my note 7. I think it feels my pain and is longing to lick the tears from my cheeks but it cant. He has his faults, like accidentally activating apps when i pick it up touching the edge of the screen. I'm sure he knows that if my faithful note 7 were to return, scratching at my door then i'd take ol' S7 by the case, lead him somewhere secluded and put him outta his misery.

    I reckon your screen is broken already. Mine had a brilliant picture for the whole month of its life before it turned an amazing shade of green and packed up.

    It looks like I'll be headed down to the S7Edge from my Note as well.
    I do use the S-Pen a good bit. I'm also not happy with the 32GB loss. My NOTE 7 is at 28GB of 64 used. I do have an SD card, but not everything can go on it. I guess it is what it is. I was thinking Pixel XL, but after watching a couple reviews, I don't like it.

    The note 7 had the option of when you swiped down the notification screen that there were small arrows next to wireless, bluetooth etc. You could click the arrow and have choices right there and not have to go to the settings first. Is there anyway to get this option on the Edge 7?

    Yes, just tap and hold. I actually like this better on the S7 than the Note 7.

    I just got my S7E today...silver...and I guess it's ok. The only reason I am switching (other than the Note7 catching fire around the world) is because I have to travel by AirPlane this Thursday.

    I just saw a rumor online of a Coral Blue S7E possibly being released. If this is true, I hope it's released within my 14 day return period.

    And ultimately i'm waiting for the release of the Note 8 news.

    Cheers to us Note7 lovers!
