I think I will get neither Note7 or iPhone 7 mainly because 4K displays and Samsung Galaxy Wing (Project Valley) is coming within six months. The banning of Note7 usage on planes ticks me off since I plan to be on a plane four times within two months. I buy a $850 phone that I can't turn on for my 16 hr flight? The iPhone 7 is already old news with low res and why would I want be stuck on a 2K display from the Note7 when 4K is better for VR and coming out soon?
Note8 will correct the problems of Note7. And iPhone 8 will be radically be different where Apple plans to shave the top and bottom bezels. Apple might make an a sexy looking glasd phone again. I really don't like the haptic feedback of the iPhone 7. Why not keep it simple, Apple? Capacitive home button that doesn't try to emulate a click? Note7 and iPhone 7 now seem to be just placeholders for something different and revolutionary next year.
Getting a PS4 slim instead. Not into 4K gaming but want 4K for VR. Only $299 and comes bundled with Uncharted 4. Don't have time to wait for the Pro. And we don't see drastic price drops on consoles like we do on smartphones. The iPhone 7 and Note7 will be under $400 by next year. These consoles may not be a PC, but neither are smartphones if you think about it. And consoles do last longer to keep and not as quickly disposal like overpriced smartphones are.
And why are expensive phones so easily smudged while cheaper phones are better at looking clean? Matte black iPhone 7 will resist fingerprints better than jet black but it still gets them. And remember iPhone 5's Scruffgate? While Note7 and jet black iPhone 7 are smudge and scratch magnets! We pay top dollar and they end up looking bad within 5 minutes.
2016 turned out fairly disappointing. Just wasting money on them. Neither S7 edge or Note7 seem practical with a useless dual edge display that are open to crackings since the sides are so exposed and slippery. Placeholders for Project YOUM announced in CES 2013.The real breakthrough year should be in 2017. The 2016 flagships are rehashes and baby steps.
Wait for Project Valley which should change the game for phablets, tablets, and wearables. Samsung Galaxy Wing, S8, and Note8 with 4K displays are coming...

pi4a7a, 10 Sep 2016Just wait for Xperia XZ, and you will see what is called a smartphone camera!Smartphone camera? Are you kidding? Lumia 1520 of 2013 release with 21mp rea and Nokia Pure View technology is still way ahead. More to say Lumia 1020 same year had even more - 41mp! Deep respect to Nokia, even though it is out of stage now.
Dont know if people are trolling or just too much of a fanboy to not admit 6s was better...

I am very disappointed with the iPhone 7. The dirty shirt is wore over , over ; and over never changing.

Ill be getting the Galaxy S7 now, the phone has lot to offer to me than an iPhone. The iPhone is way more optimised but Android has way to many features for me to ignore. So it was fun Apple, Android hello again :)
I agree with chris, problem is samsung dont know how to use that power as well as apple do.
Just wait for Xperia XZ, and you will see what is called a smartphone camera!
I agree... Increasing the display resolution would be a terrible solution for Apple because it would compromise battery life and performance... IPhone 7 would might be even worst than the 6S... Thays why some things dont change...

Being that the sizes are more closely aligned. Also, your claim that the processor and camera of the Galaxy S7 Edge is superior without the new iPhone being tested is decidedly dubious.
S7 edge is still the best smartphone. Compared with iphone 7 it has:
Better battery life
Better waterproof certificate
