    Is it only me, but I LOVE the Edge to Edge Curved Screen. This is a plus for me, which is why I would consider the S7 Edge over my existing Note 4.
    Personal choice is what matters

    I hate the curved edges. That is the only reason I won't get the s7e. I'm going with the v20.

    It scares me if I drop it and screen protectors are a problem. Plus the glass back scares me too.

    ..... Though I'd go Note 5 over Note 4.

    100% agree... Have had both, and if you can live w/o an SD Card, the NOTE 5 with its 4GB of ram, S-Pen upgrades and what not can truly run a few laps around the Note 4... Not sure why so many are considering N4 over N5 unless its all about the removable battery & sd card (which i agree were surely deal breakers in 2014-2015, but 2016 -2017 i'm finding "not so much"...

    My A9 has a 6 inch glass back but a 5 dollar skin from Sopi takes all the worry out of that...i opted for brushed black but they have tons of designs...

    I had issues with my Note 4 connecting to PC. USB Driver Update (KIES) and different USB (DATA) Cable worked!
    Yeah, I've tried numerous cables, driver Uninstaller, and reinstall. And factory resets...

    Its the USB port...

    I have 1 cheapo cable, that if I plug it in just right, it will ac charge, everything else is USB charging.

    Waiting on the replacement had the edge for 22 says. Hated the screen. Ran very hot.
    Got back the Note 7. Happy.. Then the explosions again.
    Note 5 32gig. Ordered 64gig. Won't have toll Nov 15th. Glad Verizon working with me on this. No other phone for me.

    I'm in tmobile too. I just did not like the shininess of the gold and that silver really not. Grr.
    If I really don't like it, I will just get a skin for the front. Problem solved.

    Glad that my Edge is running as smooth as my note was and haven't had any issues with the rounded edges. Haven't had any lag issues and my battery is actually a little better than it was on both my note 7's. A couple of features I miss from the Note but no other phone has them and the Edge is the closest experience imo. All the other options were missing key features I need like No Sd Card, wireless charging, camera quality, ability to customize and I love Samsung pay.

    This is why I'm keeping my Note 7 for 2 more weeks until the LG V20 comes out. I don't want to go backwards with my phones even though the S7 edge is a great phone. Moving on at least until next year when I upgrade again..

    If you don't like the phone, that is all that matters! Hopefully the "Note 8" will come out soon so you can use that! Would you consider getting a Note 5 from Amazon or eBay?

    I've found that black is always best. Frames the screen nicely, doesn't distract, even makes screen look larger. Always my choice, as boring as it seems. :-)

    Some would argue that the V20 would be taking a step back. It's all in your preferences.

    Got my note 4 from Amazon, and 2 weeks later the usb issue...

    So yeah, I guess I would consider it, but if I'd rather just use the note 4 I have, and deal with the usb thing. It's not like I NEED to root it, and install a n7 ton to be happy with it, and it generally stays plugged in all day in my car, so plenty of time to charge while im driving around for work.

    Will since we can't keep our n7 phones we needed to get something decent. I had a v10 and I was impressed with it very much. I'm confident the v20 with be very good.

    I will miss that s pen greatly, but I wont miss that fragile glass build or the curved glass. I hate the curved glass. I'm always bumping it with the palm of my hand and I fear if the phone drops and lands wrong it will break..... Even in a case.

    If they were selling new Note 5 64gb for $300 I'd consider it. But 3000mah battery? Ugh

    What is an A9?

    I don't think its for use in North America, could be wrong. Not much about it. Seems to be a downgrade, spec wise from an S7 from the little I can find.

    Lol thinking about it. When I got it the first time they didn't have black. I do not like silver so I thought gold would work. It was too shiny.
    I tried the 7 edge and it's not the same as the note 7. The back is flat and the screen curve is all the way to the edge. The phone felt uncomfortable in hand to me. It felt better upside down in my hands. Also I would accidental touches when using the phone.

    If course it's not the same. It's not a Note.

    Idk... the screen on the n7 was good...

    The s7e not so much...

    If I could change the thread title, I would, and I would change it to "no way I'm keeping this over priced s7e when I have a mostly working n4"

    Aside from the USB thing, my n4 is flawless...

    Then don't buy one. I truly hope Samsung keeps a curved version for those of us who like them.

    I'm not. I decided against the s7e because of the curved screen. I'm getting a v20 instead. What I don't like is getting a screen protector on it. (Which seems to be a wide spread issue) and I'm afraid if I drop it, since the edge is exposed it could break easy. Those are my concerns. I like the actual screen itself and what it does.

    All valid concerns. The Edge screen isn't for everyone. I don't use screen protectors anymore. I have yet to get a fractured screen.
