But this is Samsung, we're talking about, their name won't be damaged as a whole because of the Note7. They'll make great phones again. And you're also talking like no other Android OEM's make high-end phones, which is also wrong
I was a samsung owner but now will never buy one anymore since the last time I got my hands on it. I felt like being fooled because their product is just a midranger sold in high end price that's all a bullcrap. Now I won't be blinded by their so called big name or whatever because to me, Samsung is not that great despite the high price they put it's just high price with no quality whatsoever
Now the LG has outs an interesting phone, I had my eye on V20 seems legit

Although not a samsung owner this is simply not truth. It's the kind of survey that said 50% of note 7 owners will turn to the iphone 7 plus. In fact 90% got a s7 so no-note7 owners have even less of a reason to turn elsewhere.
Every time I change my phone I buy the best , most value for money phone available despite the brand. Brand loyalty is for brain dead sheep.
Wow, 40% of 188 people, they're just going to lose under 80 customers.

The fall of Samsung is the greatest thing to happen in the phone industry for years. Think about it - before it was just Apple and Samsung mopping up the premium market, and Samsung the rest. Every other maker had a tiny tiny portion of sales.
With Samsung badly going down, it means, yes Apple monopolising the premium market - but mid and low range cost phones will be open to everyone else. That means greater competition.

Even the nexus devices only stock when you buy it.. After that you customize it by installing apps, themes, launchers and so on.. Nobody uses stock android without installing any apps

Those who are changing to iphone 7 and Google pixel are just trend followers.. They are not true smartphone power user.. They will buy whatever that is fad at the moment.. They probably don't even know much of the smartphones function apart from texting and calling and social.. They are like leaves who follow whatever direction the wind blows.. They only bought the devices just to gain acceptance among their peers
Note 7's alternative is either Note 5 or Note 8 .. no other phone can replace a Galaxy Note

For the Note smartphone series, for me it ended on Note 4. Note 5 was worse in many cases than its predecessor, and now the Note 7 fiasco might mean the end of the Note name.
Of course I think Samsung will release devices with S Pen in the future, but with a different name.

Although 40% is a big number, I do believe that Samsung will rise again and learn fr9m their mistakes.
