    Well, I screwed up. I normally switch back and forth between an iPhone 6s and a Pixel. Had my S7E on eBay to sell it. 2 days ago I pulled the S7E out to mess with it a little. Ended up cancelling the auction on eBay and put my Sim back into the S7E.

    Now I'm not sure I wanna sell the Edge. I really like the Pixel but I started having a couple small issues with it. Mainly WiFi connection problems and I just can't type accurately on it. Still a fantastic phone. Buttery smooth.

    But......my Edge screen is easier on my 52 year old eyes, I can type like a madman on it, no WiFi issues, and so far I haven't noticed the lag that I was experiencing before I bought my Pixel.

    Decisions, decisions. Not a life crisis, after all its just a phone, right...? I need to make a choice what to keep and what to sell. I don't want to switch between 3 phones. If I had to make a decision right now, I think I'd sell the iPhone. Only thing that keeps me going back to that is the fact that a lot of my family is on an iPhone and we use FaceTime. Other than that, the iPhone bores me...

    I say sell the iPhone too

    You won't be able to make that decision though with the pixel and s7 edge....It's just too hard of a decision!!! I've tried and just decided to keep both. When I use one I want the other...Ugh.

    I've made this kind of decision before and sold one phone only to end up buying it again. It's just not right.

    I'm gonna have to make a choice and let one go. I'll give it a few days and see what happens.

    I did it with the pixel! I sold it and a week later bought another one. Now I'm keeping both BC I can't make a valid enough decision. It's crazy, never had the hard of a time between two phones.

    I think I should learn by now that I cant live without Samsung.

    I've been using Samsung for a long time.
    Note 4
    S6
    S6 edge
    S6 edge plus
    S7
    Then S7 edge

    After the S7 I switched to the iPhone 6S plus just to experience iOS 10. While it was a good experience, there was nothing special about the iPhone. Went back to the S7 edge. Had the best time till the Pixel came out. Everybody started raving about the Pixel. As a fan of tech I just had to check it out. I caved in. Got the Pixel.

    Pixel has the best camera. And the best performance. That's it. That's enough for most people I guess. It was for me as well. But I quickly started missing the features of S7 edge. I wont list down any of them as they're subjective. Everybody has their own preferences.

    Anyways, I switched back to the S7 edge yesterday. Yes I've noticed the difference in performance. Nougat especially stutters here and there. Pixel was on an other level when it came to performance. No stutters. 60 fps. All the time. However, as a full package, S7 edge is what suits me the best. The design and the features feel like worth the money I paid for.

    I'm a Sammy boy. I love all tech. And all phones nowadays are amazing. But Samsung has got me hooked to their designs and features pack.

    Cheers!

    I tend to agree with you having tried all of these. Unfortunately my S7 Edge started boot looping and had Bluetooth issues so I exchanged it and got a coral blue one, which was also defective (keep in mind I had the S7 Edge before the Note7, and that one worked perfectly). After the 2nd faulty unit, I just got tired of it all and replaced it with an LG V20.

    At the same time I got a Pixel XL to compare and decide on one. To my surprise I picked the LG. But yeah, the Pixel is super smooth and fast, and it's camera is great (although I still prefer the S7 Edge camera). Ironically I stayed with the V20 because of other features. Specifically, the Quad DAC (I love music, and with my Bose QC25 plugged in, or a aux cable connecting it to my car's audio, there is nothing close to it other than the Axon 7. Also the 2nd screen on the V20 is actually a lot more useful than the always on and Edge screens on the S7 Edge. I was expecting it to be completely gimmicky, but I use it all the time. Still miss my original S7 Edge for the screen alone.

    Couldn't agree more with you OP. I had the 7 plus for two months, and even though it had excellent performance and the best battery life hands down of any smartphone I've had, I realized that I love the design/display of my s7 edge, and more importantly, the features Samsung puts in its phones. I don't know how many people actually use these features, but I love multi-window and pop-up window. I use these quite a bit daily. Let's set aside the Edge screen and software, fast charging, and fast wired charging, Samsung Pay, the Samsung theme store or the ability to customize your phone with widgets or not customize it all. There are things that Apple didn't have that drove me crazy. I'm sure I'm nitpicking but here goes:

    - when you take a screen shot on the 7 plus, you have to go to your camera roll, find the pic and then send it to whomever. On the S7 edge and other Galaxy phones, you simply screenshot and have the ability to send it to whomever right there and then.

    - no smart capture - this is such an awesome feature. Sometimes I have to, for one reason or another, screenshot web pages or long text conversations. It was an absolute nightmare on the 7 plus. On the edge as I'm sure you know, it is simply easy and wonderful.


    I'm sure there are many more other small little features that have us similarly hooked.


    Cheers!

    I can relate ha ha. For me, the Note 7 was it. Obviously returned (twice) during the recalls. Love the S7 Edge but I'm a hardcore Note fan and love the bigger screen and s pen. I have tried S7edge, Note 5, LG V20 a few times. I wound up keeping an s7edge on Jump of Demand WITH tmobile and getting a Note 5 off Amazon.

    Yes man yes. It's the little things which Samsung does and everybody else just ignore or are too lazy to include. Seriously. They're too many to mention here. But you mentioned two of those things. I can add so many more:

    Ability to put the brightness slider on the top with just one pull down of the notification area

    The camera app, built in video editing tools with music and what not. Plus so many additional camera modes like collage and dual cameras and what not.

    When you download something from the web. The process is so easy. You can even download a zip file and extract it with built in file manager. Then to install the downloaded app you go and Allow Unknown Sources for just once. It automatically allows one file to get installed and unchecks itself.

    Ad blocker on Internet app.

    Last night I learnt that the clock app can now speak out time while ringing the alarm tone. How handy is that! It's amazing.

    The device optimizer. You can delete GBs of cached unused data by press of a button.

    Battery saving modes.

    The keyboard has its own clipboard.

    Plus the design as you mentioned is absolutely amazing. Even if you're not interacting with the phone, it looks good just sitting there.

    As I said, there are too many little things to mention here.

    Having said all that, I've used the Pixel unfortunately, the performance could use a little work. The animations aren't silky smooth. Especially while interacting with recent apps. Running nougat here. I want to see another small update which could iron out the animations a bit. Which would never happen.

    By looking at what Samsung is doing with the S8, the note 8 will be unlike anything which could ever exist in 2017.

    There is nothing and I mean nothing like the Note series. Note 8 is with no doubt going to be a big bang.

    I have a Pixel sitting at home for a couple weeks now but I'm still carring my S7e around with me most of the time.
    The Nougat S7e is just a perfect phone.

    I'm with you. The last 4 phones I've had have been Samsung. Every time I go out with an open mind but come back with a Galaxy time and again. Nothing about the Pixel could tempt me to swap my S7 Edge for it.
