Anonymous, 11 Sep 2016The reason for me to switch from Samsung to any other phone would be late updates. Galaxy Alph... moreYou do realize the Alpha was not a flagship right? It's flagship counterpart (aka S5) did have Marshmallow.
But you are right to point the biggest flaw in Samsung devices (in fact in Android devices excluding Nexus): UPDATES.
In fact, if I could, I would purchase the Note 7 International, but it is not available in Canada (while the S7 was) because of the Equynox.
The 8890 is an impressive SoC, with a quick CPU and an more than enough powerful GPU (less that the 820, but it still does the job thanks to Vulkan)
Going to wait for the Note 8 maybe the Equynox will come back to Canada. And hopefully US carriers will drop CDMA. In 2017 there will be only two carriers offering CDMA, and in 2018 there will be only one. I really want the Equynox back.
Cassy O, 11 Sep 2016Note7 + SD820 = yeah Note7 + E8890 = smooth, just like S7 with Exynos.nope , Note 5 was also laggy and it used only Exynos ...if the Exynos version preform better then snapdragon one then either samsung don't want or can't optimize snapdragon chipset any better . still the problem is in the software and not in the chipset .
The reason for me to switch from Samsung to any other phone would be late updates. Galaxy Alpha was direct Iphone 6 competitor when it was announced. But it still didnt get Marshmellow even it was promised for June 2016. Marshmellow came at 12th month of Alpha's introduction to market and after 1 year it is still on lolipop. SORRY SAMSUNG YOU CANT FOOL ME TWICE. I consider other brands now.
those people who voted for NOTE7 usually not a Samsung note or high end user..
Week ago this phone daily interest was over 60% now it's only 16%
It's clearly showing the impact of this happening, people arent interested about this phone anymore.
i think that samsung should rename the 'safe' notes 7s note 6 to keep better track of the bad ones, just saying idk if sounds stupid lol
Anonymous, 11 Sep 201637% are only the die hard iboys voting always against Samsung.
Get real man.
All the others ... moreand you think that those 63% will actually buy Note7 ?
I also voted in that poll for Note 7 , but I'm not giving $1000 for a laggy phone .
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2016Best decision is to skip this year and wait for next year it will be great for the mobile world How does GSMA come with this 3 of 5 ppl ?
No matter how hard you try, Note7 will sell even more now.
Im so proud of samsung for acting so fast! Unlike in other manufacturers, they just ignore the problems of their customers. Samsung for the win!
I like it when Samsung did not deny and never responded "you are not charging it right"

Get real man.
All the others were supporting Samsung. Even some normal iphone owners I guess.
You don't believe that only Note7 owners were voting here. Do you?
37 % is still a lot if they were serious about getting the Samsung note 7 and want to jump ship that is a huge percentage of the readers
