    I work 12hr noc shift in my hospital and batfery is amazing on note7.
    Agreed. But I play games on my phone during downtime and those were battery suckers. They keep my mind awake. Browsing and texting was fine, but near the end of the night when I'm ready for sleep I need Game of Drones to get the adrenaline pumping.

    Plus our hospital is a PokeStop and gym. Go Team Instinct!

    Then I completely agree with you. I used to drag my charger to work with me, I work twelve hour shifts on nights at a hospital, and I don't even have to with my iPhone 6S Plus. Hoping the battery will be just as great with the 7 Plus when it gets here next week.
    Battery life sucks on the 7 +

    ...but otherwise Apple was really in for a fight if it hadn't been for the defect.
    Doubtful.

    Just signed up for account...i am writing this on my 2nd note 7 from verizon costco....placed a order last night fir iphone plus 7 256gb in apple black..i wanted 128gb but the backorder will ship december...the 256 ships on 18th next week. For the record i am old school, started multiplr nokia phones then htc, then samsung galaxys. Had a iphone 6 hated it and gave to my mom. Now unfortunately im forced to get an iphone since its the 2nd best phone out right now besides the bomb fire hazard phone which i love. Hopefully the iphone 7 plus meets my needs and can last until note 8 comes out.

    Btw any recommended phone cases or tempered screen protectors? I want a nice leather slim and dies anyone know any fish eye lens i can add on for iphone 7 plus?

    I forgot to add my words to the above. Dleex84, when I ordered, it also said the 18th. I received a FedEx notification that I'll have it tomorrow.

    Sorry for confusion - speaking to battery fires, not to SOT/usage. It was good, but not as good as my former 6s+ or current 7+.
    Mine as well, my previous note 5's battery decreased 20% each hour

    Wow. I had a 64 GB Note 5 for quite awhile, it was bad but I don't think it got that bad. I liked the Note 5 a lot, I would have got another, heck, probably would, but I think their battery life would be torture compared to my iPhone.

    I can't stand the battery performance, sold it and switch to 6s+, missed the nfc and spen though

    Are the rumors true that Samsung and the carriers will disable (brick) the Note 7 in the near future for safety reasons? If they do this what recourse do the customers have to make them whole? Is there a time frame for returning the devices?

    This is a mess!!!

    I was told, despite already having the 6SP, that they would be sending a box, they as in Samsung/Verizon. I know if you're with Verizon your account is already reset to available upgrade. So if you had an upgrade available August 1st it has been reset to that. Then if you so choose you can go online and order a new phone. Verizon is trying pretty hard to get the phones back AND streamline the process.

    Either way, I believe most, if not all carriers are sending the hefty boxes to their Note 7 customers and expect the phones back. I don't know how they're going to do it without "threatening" people with monetary recourse. A lot of people bought the phone outright.

    No. There has not been one single official announcement that either Samsung or your carrier will block your imei number or disable your device by x date. However, you should receive or have already received a refund on your device if purchased via carrier. Samsung also has an avenue for those that have purchased via ebay/swappa,craigslist etc. Additionally they are issuing(at least in the US) a $100 bill credit with the retail purchase of another Samsung device. $25 if you switch brands.

    I just picked up a jet black 128gb plus after retuned my replacement note. I really loved the phone but of course safety first. There really wasn't an equal competitor in the android world for the note 7 and I'm always switching between iOS and android anyway.

    I really like the iPhone 7 plus. What I really miss from Android phones is the back button and the recent apps button.

    Swipe from left to right on the edge of the screen to go back. Works in most apps and system. For recents either double click home button or 3D touch from left edge of screen and swipe right for alternative way to get to recents

    I did. I had a Note 7 and I loved it. Then I traded it in for an iPhone 7 during the first recall. Then I traded that iPhone for the 7 Plus. I love the bigger phone. I got the silver one, 128GB. The Apple Store near me finally had them in stock.

    I see I'm not the only former Note7 owner who jumped to the iPhone 7 Plus!

    I'm trying to get my hands on a 7+, but it's proving difficult. I can't be without a phone, so I'm considering my options with Verizon. The 6S+ isn't bad, but it's no Note 7, but it's still tolerable. I'd just prefer to have the 7 Plus so I can continue to use my annual upgrade option through Verizon. I lost mine when I gave back the Note.
    Wow - seems like they should reinstate upgrades for folks who lost on the Note... just sayin...

    I had 3 note 7's. first was showing signs of the issues prior to the recall or known problems, then its replacement was exchanged under 1st recall. Has been a mess. Miss the REAL multitasking, spen, screen, expandable storage. Was a nice phone, though I still has a IPhone 6s. Now this time I returned the note 7 for a 256 gb matte black 7 plus. Liking it so far!

    The differences between Android and iOS are noticeable going either way. I don't want to slander either because I like both. Heck some of my google apps work better on iOS than they did on Android (which is wierd).

    Biggest difference I have seen is Android gets customization and a back button right. iOS is smooth as butter. Without manufacturer skins it just works (which is probably do also to the lack of customization).

    In the end the 7+ is a solid phone.. you just have to be ready to buy into the Apple EcoSystem which tends to have a higher pricepoint than Android does.

       ecosystem ? Isn't it just icloud drive, photo and    music ? We can just use google drive, google photo or other music streaming. I used to use    photo, but mow I switch to google photo and drive, more versatile

    Picked up a 7+ this weekend. IOS 10 and the the 7+ are super smooth. It's nice to actually be able to use a glass screen protector without the edges lifting up. Also alot of my favorite apps function better on IOS.

    I do miss the customization, expandable storage, always on display and wireless charging of the note 7. Android wear on IOS is very limited which is expected. Will probably by an apple watch if I can find any kind of discounts on Black Friday. Also iTunes is trash but I'll stick with the iPhone and see what the next Note or whatever they call it has to offer.
