Loved the note7 most logical to use yet bought it with fancy led cover it was cool when charging no problems this item seems to be missing on all burning ones.my wife had same no problems all ways cool...after recall she tried iphone7 over night where we live NO signal as we live in the country .Note7 running 2 bars of signal So all the hope for iPhone. Went out the window for us. Getting S7edge tomorrow would really to keep note7 but with no warranty moving on sadly as we have been very well treated through the process..as we need a phone that can work more distant areas than under the city cell towers as the experience of iphone7...welcome S7 edge
Thanks Samsung for your Superior coverage
JMTM, 13 Oct 2016Shame on you Samsung... beside US / EU market, samsung is pretty much bullying their custome... moreApple is also bullying their customers by producing the siries of low-featured & expensive iPhones....
This is proof that Note users are not buying the Note for its feature (S-Pen), but merely for status symbol as the Note is the most expensive Samsung phone. Going to the S7 edge makes sense as that is the next most expensive Samsung phone.
If they actually needed the S-pen, they would've switched to the Note 5, not the S7 edge.
somebody u dont know, 13 Oct 2016Well clearly you have no idea what the word "Bullying" means and what the words "Reward/Rebate... moreMaybe you need to go out more.
US/EU countries have strong consumer protection laws to begin with, thus even on the first round of recall, Samsung was compelled to offer refunds/exchanges.
In other countries, Samsung was not so generous. In Singapore, they didn't allow any refunds nor exchanges for a different model during the first round of recalls. Heck, they even put a note that they won't allow color change. The exchange window was so short as well. It's not until this final discontinuation of the model that they finally allow refunds. But nothing more, no $100 extra or anything (that is US only). Just plain refund.
If I was a Note 7 purchaser, I would be pissed being treated like that.
gilda, 13 Oct 2016Once bitten twice shy. I certainly would want nothing to do with this particular company after... moreI would love to see you do just that. Using any Snapdragon(recent ones including the coming soon SD830) powered smartphone is having to do with Samsung.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016Not sure why this switch. The S7 edge has no stylus?Samsung users have the mentality, "Samsung any days rather than iphone".
JMTM, 13 Oct 2016Shame on you Samsung...
beside US / EU market, samsung is pretty much bullying their custome... moreWell clearly you have no idea what the word "Bullying" means and what the words "Reward/Rebate/Bonus/Offer" means .... May be u need to look at samsung's true color. They are doing the best they can .... and they are not saying they will take back note 7 only if they buy new galaxy. They are just giving some offer just to hold on those customers and not let them go. You are free to get any device of your choice and you would still get full refund for note 7.
Shame on you that you cannot understand english !!!!
May be you don't know the meaning of word "Shame" also I think . go look it up in dictionary ... lol !!!!
JMTM, 13 Oct 2016Shame on you Samsung... beside US / EU market, samsung is pretty much bullying their custome... moreWell it's probably because if we want the best, there's no other real option. In terms of battery life, performance with hardware or camera, and memory storage. We like what's best is the simplest way to put it.
If you only give gift cards of course they will buy another samsung phone, they should be legally providing cash (card) refunds
Shame on you Samsung...
beside US / EU market, samsung is pretty much bullying their customers to get another
phone from them especially Asia region.
Makes me sick seeing these samsung fanboys know nothing about samsung's true color
AnonD-586892, 13 Oct 2016One can keep the note 7 as a collectors item. In 10 years time, people are going to talk about... moreSure, if it doesn't reach menopause and experience hot flashes. Would need to be under some fireproof glass. A better and safer collector's item is an original iPhone or Nokia N9. At least they are safer to keep. An S7 edge is not that much worse than a Note7. Some say S7e reaches 80% of what a Note7 can do. But is it worth keeping a Note7 being only 20% better when it is putting your life at risk?
People wanting to keep the Note7 are idiots. Selfish pride over safety. This isn't on the same level as the original iPhone or a rarer phone like the N9. In a few months, a better phone with better specs and performance will be released. It isn't even the first Note. As great as Note7 is in many aspects for 2016, it wasn't really revolutionary at anything. Samsung should also be blamed for the worst software optimization among all Android OEMs.
Read up on it for Note 4 owners which still were blessed having removable battery. Lag after some usage when $50 Android phones run faster and smoother. I avoid Samsung for three reasons. They don't care about the smooth software experience and give all Androids a bad name with their lag and stutter. OLED have shorter life expectancy than LCD. And I don't like glass backs that are prone to smudges with gimmicky dual edged screens that are useless and will die out once foldable displays are out.
Note7 will be forgotten. Only lasted two months unlike a Sega Dreamcast, Sony PS Vita, and webOS devices which all lasted years which offered far more great memories and Note7 hardly made a positive impact to the industry. It was only 20% better than a S7 edge. Big whoop. People move on. No time to be nostalgic or a sentimentalist in this industry that moves fast. RIP Note7. S8 and Galaxy X, next...
2016 has got to be the worst year for flagships. True, some nice devices out there with nice cameras. But Note7 up in flames, death of headphone jack and same old design with iPhone 7/7+, and LG G5 wasn't well-received for its modular design. Also the death of the Nexus and Note branding.
ProJames, 13 Oct 2016Proof the S7 Edge is 2016's best Android smartphone (bar the Note 7). I know some will disagr... moreJust because its the best phone for you, doesn't mean its true for everyone else. Different people have different tastes. Remember that the world does not revolve around you and your opinions.
sad for it... had the privilege to use it extensively, and mine was without any problems... the retina scanner is far better than any security solution, its like face lock, that was already there, but 100 times better, and accurate
AnonD-442781, 13 Oct 2016It won't get any updates, if it does get an update it would be updates that cripple the phone ... moreOne can keep the note 7 as a collectors item. In 10 years time, people are going to talk about the exploding phone and how it was discontinued. It could perhaps be cool to have one as a personal collection.
