Nope. Don't want a much smaller screen, locked bootloader and Touchwiz. N6 also has tons of mods and ROMs. I think I'll stick with the N6 at least until the 2016 Nexus or Moto X Pure.

While the dropped calls/questionable reception issue of the N6 often make me use words I regret, the large screen is what caused me to purchase the handset (32/Verizon).

I'm staying with Nexus 6 until the better mousetrap arrives.

Large Amo display, reliable radios (mine have been good), responsive & uncluttered software and stereo front-facing speakers--Any likely contender for my money absolutely must match or beat the N6 on those points. Everything else like faster-than-fast processor or outta-this-world camera tech or even high-grade materials & design is just frosting.

Sammy's clearly got the display, but they just as clearly are never going to get the speakers. Unless, of course, Apple goes there.

If I were to need to replace my N6, it would be with a 6P or a Maxx2. Samsung makes some pretty good stuff, but I just can't spend that kind of money and deal with that kind of bloatware & modified OS.

If I were to replace my Nexus 6 because of damage, I would get a cheap Moto E or G until a Nexus phone that interested me came out. Plus I'm broke and can't afford another flagship phone right now. :p

Coworker just got the S7 today. Having become accustomed to the N6, the S7 looks and feels like a toy (though I'm sure it's an exceptionally well crafted one). I haven't had the opportunity to look at the S7 Edge as of yet, and would be interested to do so, but I don't expect it will offer enough to encourage me to switch - especially when we're about mid-way through the evolutionary cycle to the next iteration of the Nexus line.

Read where Nexus 6 and Samsung S7 reception strength is in question.
My experience with the N6 has shown it to be exceptional with signal strength.
Having no experience with Samsungs S6/7 can't comment on them.
While S7/e do have that new car smell, won't be going there at this time.
Hard to justify such an expenditure for such little delta.
Never say never but don't see it now.

I messed with the s7/s7 edge at worst buy Saturday and I was sort of impressed with how nice they were. If they were only updated reliably I could see myself buying one as a secondary device to see if I like it. Let's face it... No one does cameras better than Samsung. And the hardware is top notch. Just touch wiz..... Eww. It's getting better. But still.

It'd be awesome to see a Samsung Nexus again. Just my 2 cents.

If there was a Nexus S7 I would consider (and that includes switching to on screen buttons). I used to think I would never go back to a smaller screen size than my N6, but I am now using my phone less than before and I think I could handle a smaller screen - as long as battery life is good - although I am sure it would take some time to adjust.
