    That can't be right. The S7 Edge had the best screen before Note 7 came into the picture. Better check properly mate if your screen is faulty. It's still one of the best options in Samsung since Note 7 has been recalled.

    I didn't like the curve of the screen, the reflection it gave off on the sides made the screen seem, to me anyway, a lot smaller than it actually was.

    Just got mine as well, and I feel your pain. Don't like the sharper curve of the edges, the screen feels so much smaller (even though it's not), and I've lagged twice between hitting the home button and actually going to the home screen.

    Still adjusting as well. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice phone just not a Note. I put an Otterbox on mine which smooths the edges a bit and adds protection but it's uncomfortable in the hand. I've adjusted to the screen size but little thinks like vibration and build quality feel a tad cheaper. The screen also has some faint bleeding in the bottom when viewing certain content.

    Overall I'm happy with the performance though. Once I got the content scaling, animation settings and Nova installed there was no more lag.

    Yes, we know* what you mean.

    But it's sharper than the S6 Edge so it might be defective. I'd get it checked if I were you.

    I went from N7 to S7E and I actually think the screen looks so much better on the S7E.

    My daughter has an S7edge and has no problem getting to the theme store, even my wife on her Note 5 found it. They don't have the Grace UI, but I will admit that I really liked Grace a lot not at all like TouchWiz.

    I just got my s7 edge today and I think it's an acceptable replacement for me. The only complaint I have us the color I ended up with(silver). I could have went to another store to try and find a black, but I didn't want to do all of that. Other than that it works for me.

    The LG looks like a great phone. I am considering it as I have 13 days left with the S7E. While the screen scores higher with regards to brightness, it looks like color accuracy is way off.

    LG V20 is in my sights, as well as if AT&T were to carry the ugly Pixel, i'd consider that. I REALLY want to wait for the Note 8 or whatever it ends up being, but I don't know if my Note 4 will hold on that long.

    I got the S7 Edge today too (returned the Moto Z Force which I got Monday to replace my Note 7). I also got and Intuos Creative Stylus 2 which is a great alternative to the sPen. I uses bluetooth - it gives good results on the S7E

    That sounds strange to me. The blacks on my S7E are much blacker than the N7 blacks were. I'm a photographer so I really notice things like color temperature, contrast, dynamic range, etc.

    I remember when I first went into Sprint store to check out the S7E, I was like nah I'll wait for the Note 7.. I just can't go back to a smaller phone since having the Note 2. All I have now is an HTC M8 smh

    I'm back with a silver S7 Edge. Picked it up today. Oh well, I still had my old accessories. I was thinking about that new LG, but, I couldn't give up the edge screen and the beautiful glass and metal case. And, in spite of it all, I am a Samsung person.

    I bought a Note5 off of eBay, there's nothing out there that warrants my 2 year upgrade/commitment and I'm not settling for an S7edge because it's the closest, I'll wait to see what the S8 is like now that they have to add in some Note features to gain people back after this mess.

    You'll be going backwards no matter what phone you choose.
