    I had an S4 mini that I frankly outgrew due to it being so small. I bought a Note 7 which was a stunning phone with so many features, I really hated having to give it back. The closest phone to it was the S7 Edge so I bought that. The Edge actually fits in my hand a little better I must say. The screen on the Edge is frickin' awesome, the camera is awesome, and the phone itself is very elegant looking.

    Haven't you missed your Note 4 and the pen?

    Me, too. I can't stand the distorting texts on the edges.

    S7. I wanted a device just for Gear VR, since the screen door is noticeably less with the smaller display. Looks considerably better than my Note 7 did in that regard. Also, I really dislike the more pronounced curves on the 7E. Actual total legible space is the same as the S7, due to the curve. That said, 100% respect a lot of folks like the curve

    The Best Buy deal going right now made the S7 a reasonable option for Gear VR only function, plus makes a great back up phone Prefer my Note 4 with new battery as my main phone. Like a new device with MM update and a factory reset.

    if nobody has said this already..... this poll is being conducted in the S7 section of the forum.... so the results are probably biased towards the S7.... do the same poll in the S7 edge section and see what the results are like?

    I'd choose the Edge! My mom has the S6 Edge and I love it. It's a beautiful, smooth device and the black colour is superb. There's something about it over the S7 that I really like. I think I'd also use the "edge" part of the phone for favourites contacts, etc. I just like the aesthetics and hardware more than, say, the Galaxy S series. My only fear would be getting a good screen protector for it, as I've heard that the curved glass can be a little difficult to accommodate.

    Neither. I went with the S7 Active because of its humongous battery. Only 30 days old but BY FAR the best phone and battery life I've ever had. I stream Howard Stern to Bluetooth earpiece all day long and still have above 50% when I'm back home that night. Crazy amazing

    Morq: That's what I figured too. I just got my first smartphone - an S7 and am still trying to figure out how to use it.
    Rather than risking dropping the little fellow, I bought a (can I say "Otter" here?) and it makes holding the phone so much easier.
    And I couldn't see putting another C-note on it and then have to deal with misclicks.

    Better battery life isn't a gimmick. Larger screen isn't a gimmick. And I find the Edge more comfortable to hold because the S7 has chunkier sides.
    Bigger batter offsets the slightly larger screen. There isnt much difference in battery life between the two on heavy users.

    I liked the feel of the regular S7 myself.

    I have an edge, and although I love the screen, the way I hold the phone causes me problems with scrolling and general stuff.
    Coming from an LG G3 to this is a learning curve.
    But, the edge lighting color notifications when the phone is flipped is awesome.
    Edge panels are okay, but the stock & free add on apps are limited in use.

    I've been thinking about getting the Exynos S7 and I'm coming from an Exynos S7 Edge. The S7E has one of the best battery life so far on any Android device I've used so far. Battery life would be my only concern when moving on to the smaller variant, otherwise the S7E is a beautiful device.

    I had the choice. I chose the "standard" S7. I didn't see any benefits to having the Edge.

    Place a regular S7 and an Edge side by side with the same screen - the larger screen is... just barely larger. I think most people who prefer the Edge just like the look and/or the feel.

    I just replaced my Note 4 with a S7. While I wanted a bigger screen, the curved screen never really appealed to me. Biggest reason I didn't go with it was reports of the Edge being more fragile and all of the pink line reports.

    Had the S7, then "upgraded" to the S7's a fun phone, but the screen shattered recently after it fell onto tile.
    Ironically, even with a case on, the case can't protect the 'edge' part of the phone.
    The S7 is a better buy, in my opinion, especially for the size. perfect size.

    I went from a IPhone 7+ to the S7 I'm enjoying the size and features of the phone, the S7 edge to me has to drastic of a curve and a much higher break point

    I just picked up an unlocked S& G930F for $430, that arrived with Android 7 installed. The 5.5" edge was about $90 more, which sealed the deal for me with the S7.
