    Too much drama now with the Note 7. Seals the deal for me, I'm going iPhone again. Does anyone know if the Apple Store does T-Mobile's JUMP upgrades?

    I'm team me I go where the tech takes me. If I don't like the iPhone I'll send it back, but I'm going to give it a honest shot.
    From how I use my Android phone it should work just fine. Since I'm mostly a windows phone person I'm not into changing launchers and widgets.

    I defected to the Note7 for one explosive moment and now I'm back.

    I'm considering giving iPhone a try. Still sitting here with my Note 7 trying to decide if I should turn it in and get a loaner, or wait until Friday and check out the 7+. Was a Windows phone user before last year. I like Android and love the note, but change is fun.

    I also loved the note 7 but it made me realized I missed my iPhone too much. Can't wait for my 7+

    I returned my N7 under buyers remorse; a week before the recall began. So the battery issues weren't the reason I switched. Just need a change of OS for a while. I swore I'd never go back to a closed file system....but...here I am

    Getting the Black 7+. This will be my first iPhone. I think the dual camera implementation, stereo speakers and IP67 rating is finally what pushed me to try it. I also have an iPad3 with about 100 paid apps...so it'll be nice to use some of those with the 7+.

    I should add that I'm on JOD with Tmo. That definitely makes the switch easy

    I absolutely loved the Note 7's design. That screen was just awesome. However there was just too many small things that bugged me about it that ultimately made me say eff it and returned it and placed a order for a 7 Plus. It's been a week and I still miss the Note but it's mostly for its design.

    Note 7 has a lovely design and screen, but i am bothered by the minor lags of the keyboard. Also the battery problems. What's unfair here in Singapore though, is that we can't have a refund and Samsung will only do a 1 to 1 exchange. Everyone is so pissed that they can't do anything about it. Once i get the exchanged note 7 i think i'll just sell it and get the iphone 7 plus.

    I just returned my Note7 as well. I really loved the design of that phone and the OS is fun as well. I think Samsung has really shot themselves in the foot with this whole recall.. Having said that I am sticking with an iPhone for my daily driver and going to use an Android device for my work phone.

    There is certainly something to be said for controlling the OS and the hardware to make a smooth performing device.

    I'm a current Note7 owner and I am going to trade it in on Friday for an iPhone 7 Plus. I don't want to wait 45 months for a new Note7 and I just want to get my phone returned and over with. Besides, I have a flight on Sunday and I don't need the stress of worrying about my phone with the TSA/FAA.

    Well I am one that will be returning the note 7 and trying to get the Iphone 7 on Friday however if I can't I may get the 6s+ 64 gig which no it doesn't kill the note 7 but is very comparable the Iphone 7 will kill it off in speeds for sure camera I am sure it will compete so either way after being with Android since the Google g1 and have used all makes I tried the 4s for 2 months till switch back to Android but now I'm ready to make the jump to a more steady device and plan on getting a mac to pair with it after the purchase of my home.

    I got my first iPhone (the 6s+) last year after being on Android since 2010. The only other experience I had on Apple was an iPod Touch 5th gen that I didn't keep for very long. I was coming from an LG G4 when I got the iPhone, and it's been a great experience. When I had the Note 7 (for maybe a week before it was recalled) it made me miss several things I had forgotten about on Android...but at the same time it made me remember things I didn't like. Also, IMHO, the Note 7 camera was better than the iPhone 6s+ in my experience. Regardless, it's just a shame the Note 7 will be seen as such a tainted device during it's lifespan, but I'm not shedding a tear at upgrading my iPhone at this time.

    I'm not a Note 7 Refugee, but I almost was. I pre-ordered a Note 7 then got cold feet when I started hearing about some issues here and there, so I cancelled to wait to see if they got straightened out. Then the recall came in and I have all but written off the phone. I've pre-ordered my 7+ in Matte Black w/256gb of storage. After many years on Android (and being on a 6s+ since December), the only thing I miss is the customization. I wish Apple would open that up just a little bit more. But I'm pretty happy with my decision to stay with Apple. I'm now looking at purchasing either a Mac or an iPad Pro to go along with my Apple stuff and make the transition complete. The only thing that could pull me away from Apple right now is if Google knocks everything out of the park in October.

    I had an iPad Air while still on Android and that really swayed me to try out the iPhone. I'm looking at upgrading to an iPad Pro 9.7in too, unless my Air can hold on for a few months until the next iPad is released. I miss the customization too, as well as the notification system. Plus I used the S Pen a LOT, just as I did when I had the Note 4. But ultimately there were two things that make iPhone the winner for me:

    1. The apps really are more robust on their iOS versions. While on Android I had always heard this, but I didn't really believe it. Even when I got the iPhone I didn't see much of a difference. However, when I went back to the Android versions I noticed features (that I used a lot!) that were missing.

    2. While on Android, it always seems like you have do go through a lot of steps to disable and tweak things to make performance (speed and/or battery) better. None of that is really necessary on iPhone.

    Bonus:

    3. I really like iMessage.

    I do also like the notifications on Android a little better. And that there's choice. Not everyone will have the same watch, etc. on Android. But I just find that there were always more issues on Android. Just another thing that you HAD to tweak to get something just right. There are things that I don't like about iOS (can't choose default apps is a major one for me), but the whole experience overall is more unified. And less stress. I actually just went all in this morning and picked up an Apple Watch Series 1 (can't justify over $400 for a Series 2 until I know how much I'll actually use it) and bought an iPad Pro 9.7. I have an ATV4 at home already, so my collection is just about complete.

    I'm going to miss chatheads for notifications, but getting 100% of my texts should offset that....

Since I use those apps several times a day, it may be worth sticking with iPhone even though I'm more or less underwhelmed with the iPhone 7 announcement (the camera looks rad, though).

    On the Note, I enjoyed having the S Pen (hella easy to write down notes and numbers during phone calls), the split screen functionality, the amazing screen, the great camera, all of the extra features of Android/Touchwiz, and I like the form factor a bit more since it's less tall than the iPhone + models.

    I'm also planning on getting a new iPad soon, so I'll still have access to most of the app versions I like (except Fitbit), so there's that to consider too.

    Decisions are hard, man.
    iPhone 7 Plus is super underwhelming since I already have a 6s Plus, and in fact takes a step back because of the lack of headphone jack. I also have a Note 7 waiting to be replaced in about 1-2 weeks hopefully. I may keep my Note 7 this time around and stay in the Android camp until the next iPhone, assuming a better solution is offered for audio than the current hack job.

    For me, I am mainly interested in the camera. Otherwise, I don't see a reason to upgrade from the 6s Plus
