    I had an S7 Edge. It was a perfectly fine phone. But the phone enthusiast inside me forced me to get the Pixel and see what the fuss was about.

    Pixel is a perfectly fine phone. But I miss the feature packed S7 edge sometimes while creating content like editing videos on the phone with the comprehensive Camera app. And so many other little things. Plus that thing was sexy! Never faced any lag issues either. Performance wasn't a problem on the S7 edge.

    Has anybody made this double switch? From Samsung to Google then back?

    What has been your experience? I don't want to regret going back to Samsung.

    I'm all ears.

    I switch back and forth all the time. But i also have the S7 edge and Pixel XL and 7+ and picked up a Mate 9 the other day too.
    I swap phones back and forth....just take the sim out pop it into what phone I feeling that day.

    Love my S7 edge running the Nougat beta still. But can't wait for the S8!

    Must be nice to be a billionaire.

    To answer the OP's question though, the next phone I buy will be the S8. I think the pixel's overpriced and has a totally uninspiring design.

    Me neither. Some people buy coffee every morning. I make my coffee at home and spend my money on tech. 😁

    I did. But then I got buyer's remorse with the Pixel XL and switched back to the S7 edge (and a few other phones in between there). My main problem with the Pixel is that it's a mid-ranged phone, in terms of hardware, with a high-end phone price. I hate that there was no proper water resistance. I hate that there was no OIS. I hated the connection issues with LTE/Bluetooth/WiFi. The battery life wasn't up to par with the edge. And don't get me started on the lens flaring issues.

    Google had the chance to make a great phone, and they fumbled. Sure, the software was great and seamless, but it was missing so many other features that it shouldn't have been priced as high as it is.

    Oh man, I loved the Mate 9, but I had to ditch T-Mobile and go back to Verizon because Verizon has a stronger signal at work than T-Mo.

    The Edge series is a great line. I can totally understand why you'd consider switching back! Both phones are great options - I'd find it difficult to choose between the two, as well.

    T-MOBILE is getting better but still hasn't caught up to Verizon yet....

    I currently have the same 4 phones. The latest addition is the Mate 9 -- very impressed with it. I do look forward to the 7.0 update on the S7 Edge. I just cannot stand how it stutters sometimes compared to the others and hope Nougat makes is smoother on a consistent basis. The XL is the one I regret getting the most, mainly because it was so expensive compared to what it offers.

    I am debating trading my S7 Edge for the LG v20. Just not a fan of the edge screen. I do like the size & performance.

    Wow you have a phone addiction like myself. I recently started working with 2 phones but 4? 🤔 You won't have to return anything as you have them all and can use whatever suits your needs that particular day

    I might thin the herd so to speak as i mostly use the Pixel XL and 7+ while I wait for the S8 to come out.....
    I use T-Mobile and their Jump on Demand program. So I will jump from the S7 edge to the S8 when I can.

    I have the s7edge on the same jump on demand. I plan to use it for the s8 or note 8. I have tried the nexus 6P and Note 5 as optional 2ndary phones. Currently debating as I had to return the Note 5 I got from Amazon due to a bad screen burn issue😐. Either changing another Note 5 or possibly Note 4 maybe, or the LG V20.

    I miss my coal blue Note 7 to be honest. But the Pixel is really a nice phone too. I can't wait to see what Samsung has in store for us with the S8. They really push innovation more than any other company.

    I just watched a lot of videos of the S7 edge running Nougat.

    The stutters and latency in opening apps and switching between apps and just navigating through the phone never bothered me.

    But watching those videos, I think im spoiled by Pixel. The the little delays, I could notice quite easily.

    That made me really happy about my Pixel. Maybe its a stupid thing but I've become one of those people who have started noticing the nano seconds delay in navigating through the UI. Used to hate those kinds of people. I guess I'm one of them now.

    Plus I got a protector for the back glass panel which just covers the glass. I'm using the phone naked now with a glass protector on the front and that plastic protector covering the back portion. Makes a huge difference. Using a cheap case made this phone feel cheap. Without a cover it's a whole other story.

    Pixel for me.

    Thank you. I see the thread was going way off topic anyways.

    You have me thinking about the nexus 6p again. I had that for a short time then got the Note 5 and it had a defective screen burn kssue...so it was returned to Amazon. Was going to get a note 5 again but concerns about screen...the nexus 6p was liquid smooth no stutter just a joy. I'd go for the lg v20 but on Amazon. It's just too much for me.

    Yes I've finally started to see what people had been talking about in the reviews.

    One word for Pixel = instant.

    This is awesome, and actually my dream! LOL. I thought it was to get married and have kids; but maybe it's actually to swap SIM cards between a bunch of phones... .
