Since paying for Galaxy Note 7 outright in the UK and never having it delivered and then discontinued, I have £700 spare to spend on a new phone.
Sadly there is absolutely nothing out there which meets my requirements. I need a phone with a pen for productivity and graphic design and I'm afraid the Note Series is where Samsung have its niche market.
Apple may have powerful optimised processors on a smaller Dpi screen but it's operating system and iTunes is so user unfriendly and unless jailbroken is no good.
I am currently using a Sony Z5 which is ok but very dull and plasticky. It doesn't feel like a premium phone. Sony haven't made decent looking phones since breaking with Erriccson.
I will never get an HTC again because of there treatment of me when I had the HD2 which had atrocious battery life and the camera was terrible!
I have to say my money will be waiting for S8 or S8 edge next year. I want a premium phone with power and the freedom to put what I want on it. Then later that year I trust I will be getting my Note 8 :-).
Ask yourself something when have you ever been surveyed for these mobile phone polls? It's never going to he a true reflection of users anyway.
Each to there own and Sammy is for me for many reasons at the moment.
I have given up on Samsung long before the note 7 was first rumored. It was because of it's heavy customization of Android. I won't buy another Samsung till it comes with stock Android and half the price. They've started so good with the S4 GPE. They should have kept continuing like that. Or at least offered a stock Android ROM to install.

Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016I'm not fanboy but how is note 7 legend? How? Legend with faulty battery?I haven't use a phone that is legend lol. If a phone is legend, you are less likely to replace it but i guess to some people they have 1000 legendary phones.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016So many people dying to change their phones? Isn't Note4 still out there? If removable batt... moreHmm, why would a phone suddenly start to lag? It won't, it really isn't a problem to use it longer. Apart from non-removable batteries, the planned obsolescence is mostly brainwashing: They brainwash people into thinking they need to replace their phones, but they don't really (In majority of cases).
Diu Nia Ma, 14 Oct 2016Hey dude, the best Android is still HTC Sense. King of smooth Android. TouchWiz is so lag af... moreKing of android isn't HTC. King of android is Sony dude with its lightweight and smooth UI that never lag. And has lower crash rate than Nexus.
Note 7 will forever be a legend. Those who don't agree are just jealous or Sony/Google/LG/HTC fanboys
LG v20 got good reviews throughout, but as compared to other flagships its one hell of a ugly phone. Only if LG would have given more attention to design.
siddhss, 14 Oct 2016Surveyed between only 1000 people...it is not acceptable for final review....note 7 user optin... moreVery True survey, I was hardcore user of Samsung Note series and shifted from apple 4s to Samsung note 2, Every year getting upgraded as Samsung Note was upgrading But this year after controversy of note 7 and no strong reply from Samsung,
