    My HTC dropped and the screen cracked. It's still usable, but definitely needs replaced and the sooner the better. But I've always been a buyer of phones either on or soon after launch day. I'm most likely going to be buying muddiest Samsung since the Instinct and wondering if you guys think I should go with the s7 edge, or wait till the s8.

    And when the S8 comes out, wait at least a month or two to see how loud the howls of "not another one with problems" are. I've been using Samsung for years, but after the last couple of debacles, one more problem phone and they're off my list.

    Though call...the S7E is an awesome device and does way more than I need it to. I guess you could wait for the S8 but then you have the whole "never buy a phone on release date, wait a few months and let them work the bugs out". So the S7E was released in late Feb or early March...so its been out about 8 months. Not too long...again, for me it's more than enough phone. Up to you, good luck.

    Also....I got a flyer in the mail stating on Nov 12 at Sams, if you buy & activate an S7 series phone you get a $250 gift card and no activation fee.

    Feb/Mar typically, though some say earlier rush to compensate for N7 issue though some say later to be safe if cause of N7 issue not identified and S8 replicated, and some say to wait one month after launch to ensure no N7 issues like last time.

    I would like to see what they offer us Note 7 users who stuck with a Samsung. I love my S7 edge so I will be on the S8 when it comes out.

    Exactly. I've tried a few phones since Note 7 but came back to S7Edge as for me, nothing came close to all the features and benefits that phone offers

    I'm really torn about this. My backup is a Note 3 so I waited a long time for Note 7. What a phone. Too bad.

    Anyway I feel nuts buying the s7e with the s8 out in 4 months but I'm really ready for a new phone. Wish I knew exactly what specs of s8 will be so I could make an intelligent choice. I don't care about usb c or a newer processor but I do care about ram and on board memory and battery CAPACITY (not claimed battery life which is bs).

    Note 7 has a big screen and I didn't have complaints about the battery. I've been with large screen phones a long time now and couldn't go back

    Large screen normally means more room to fit a large battery so it often evens itself out I find. Just look at the difference in battery size between the s7 and s7 edge and the pixel and pixel xl

    To me...the size of this phone is perfect. I don't really want a bigger phone. The screen is big enough to see things clearly and in good detail but the overall size of the phone is not cumbersome and easily fits into my front pocket. That's just me.

    I hope thats
    I think 5.5" its best size cuz you can use it in one hand very practical + give you best battery performance .
    that all what we need that's what happened with s7 edge .

    But then I would end up waiting 5 more months for Note 8 and so on ad infinitum

    Without offence those who like..Brand New phones they ordered
    in advance, before the device launch. Won't listen the above advices

    But when the bugs start toBe reported-Like in the Note7 case
    They regret carry out the deal..But too late: They made
    Samsung or Apple richer--And will do it again

    I think the leaks also stated that the screen would cover more of the front, specifically where the home button is/was. Basically, you add a half inch to replace this and you have a usable 5.2" and 5.7" inch screen.

    With your post #12 & this is spot on for me as well. Have never purchased as soon as something is released waiting for the bugs to get worked out. After 6 weeks when everything is in the open, it is only a few more weeks until the next big release. Also looking at upcoming Black Friday sales & they seem to be angling toward store credits instead of cash discounts. Which is less interesting to me.

    Also thinking if the S8 comes as rumored with an insane 90% screen ratio or what ever it was. It will make the bezels on some other devices look like they are from the 1990's.

    No more home button? That would suck

    I think there will be a home key, but no physical button. If the fingerprint sensor is imbedded into the screen, I'm sure it will do dual duty, just like the physical home button now does. It sounds more or less like a small camera under the glass. Typically, cameras aren't huge, so I could see the outside edges and out being used as the home key as well.
