    That's AMOLED technology when you crank up the brightness to 100% and never turn them off. LCD has light bleed and uneven coloring/shading. AMOLED has burn in. But it gets much brighter and has even coloring/shading and deep blacks.

    I think I'm going to stick with my iPhone 6s for another 2 years and wait for the iPhone 8. I will be grabbing the new nexus phone this year if it comes to Verizon . I'm only using stock android from here on out .

    That's what I plan on doing too. I know that I am going to be tempted to get this year's iPhone and Nexus

    I LOVE the Apple Store.. My only complaint is that they are always so busy, but I guess that is a good thing

    I haven't dealt with a carrier (hardware wise) since 2009 when our Apple Store opened up. Why go to a carrier store when you can get everything done right then an there? Plus apple knows their product.

    I've thought about it. I just moved from Android to iOS and though I like my 6s Plus, I am not in love with it. The only reason I moved to iOS was my experience with HTC and Microsoft. In the former, my HTC One M9 was a major let down, and in the latter, Microsoft didn't release the 950XL with CDMA (I'm Verizon).

    I chose the 6s Plus because that seemed to offer the OS stability (and consistency) that Microsoft Phones has, with the app choices that iOS/Android have. We'll see in another year or so. I guess if I had chosen Samsung instead of HTC, I would have probably stayed with Android longer.

    Not the case any longer. Software on Android is great now. Samsung newest OS customizations aren't crap anymore. My wife just got the note 7 and lovers it. I have a nexus 6p and have no slowdowns after 6 months and I'm on the beta of the newest OS. I think if you haven't got there recent top end Samsung on Nexus then you have old experiences that aren't current.

    Yes,

    In fact we have switched three iPhones over to Samsung. The first switch was from iPhone 4 to Galaxy S6, Second switch was from iPhone 5 to Galaxy S7 edge, the third switch was from iPhone 5 to Note 7.

    The camera quality, IP-68, additional storage, S-pen along were more than enough to tip the table. Escaping iTunes and iCloud are another plus.

    The Note 7 is my phone, I've had several iPhones and have had problems with all of them. Failed home button operation, cellular antenna failure on iPhone 5, and very poor sound volume and quality on all of them. ICloud and iTunes are horrible and yes iOS can be glitchy, does reboot and has locked up many times.

    The switch for us has been positive, yes some things are different and Apple definitely has Android beat on the App front. If your app dependent, Android may not be a fit. I'm sure I'll find things i don't like with Android and with Samsung, but I've had enough problems with Apple that it's time to look elsewhere.

    In my opinion Apple has fallen behind on hardware quality, durability and their software integration is no longer head and shoulders above the competition. I would not even consider an Apple phone device based on past history, which has been since the launch of the iPhone 3. Prior to that I had various blackberries and prior to that Motorola star tac.

    Pricing was not a determining factor in our decision to switch.

    Although the Note 7 looks very tempting . But I will stick to my IPhone 6s Plus. Too much bloat ware on the Andriod phones. I have Verizon and I don't like having their software crap on the phone. So I stick with Apple because its bloat ware free

    Samsung is good for classic phones only, i would never change my American iPhone with Korean note, Samsung is useless and Android is worse like a nightmare. i even prefer Sony to Samsung.

    Other than the company being American owned, what makes iPhone an American phone since it's not built here?

    I picked up the note 7, been using the iphone 6s plus the last 8 months. I'm on the fence about returning it or not. The screen is much better, the camera is better too. My main issue is almost every samsung I have owned got much worse with every update. The note 4 became useless after the lollipop update 4 me. The note 5 was a little better but each updates hits the battery it seems. I'll probably return it and see what the iphone 7 has and how much improvement the camera has.

    Touchwiz still isn't very good. A lot of the bugs have been worked out, but it's still far behind Android in overall quality and efficiency. Plus the waiting for software updates is unacceptable.

    I don't put a ton of value into the whole "American" thing, but the poster is right: the iPhone can reasonably be described as American when you consider a car from GM is called "American" when they're built in Mexico.

    I have been rocking a beat up 4 since it came out, and it still holds up!! Recently picked up a 6S cheap off of C.L. (haven't used it yet, thought about flipping), but did check on the Note 7. The Note does look nice, but using an Android felt so awkward. I think I am too set in my ways!! lol

    You should check out my post on android central I also am on the fence. I must say the screen and camera and s pen are the only things making me wonder if i should keep it. Have you watched any qhd videos on it? My god there is no comparison.

    I just picked up the Note 7 yesterday and it is an amazing phone. I usually carry two phones and I will not give up my 6S+ as my DD, but the note is a lot of fun to play with and the display is crazy good

    Guys i really don't understand what you are talking about? Note is Samsung and Samsung or Android both are so weak and useless against iOS and American iPhone..Have you seen this?

    Galaxy Note 7 vs. iPhone 6s real-life speed test proves specs aren?t everything

    One year old iPhone is way stronger than useless Note 7, Specs aren’t everything.


    And iOS spec is optimized for Humans like you, You think apple could not make a phone with higher specs for Camera Display CPU PPi Ram....

    ????

    Just think for a second, iPhone made for normal users and humans and that's enough! Do you think your eyes can support 1000 PPi? or 26 MP camera of Samsungs are better than your 12 MP of 6S Plus? please be technical, iPhone camera is way better than 26 unreal Camera of Samsung because it has better lens or what about Ram and CPU? if Apple makes 5 GB of Ram, it would be awesome for you? yes? You are wrong! Apple knows the best for you and knows to optimize the best hardware function with iOS without any minor issue such as slow FW lags bugs....

    So What do you expect more? Think what is the best for you and use it as an End-User.

    Without a doubt the screen is the best. I usually just watch short videos on my phone anything longer I use my iPad Pro, which has a great screen too. I do like the spen but I also use force touch a lot. I think it comes down to software. The note does have more features but let's look at the fingerprint scanner. I can use it a ton on the iPhone with most of the apps. That is not the case on android.
