    The Note 7 may have been recalled, but the smartphone still has plenty of users out there. Mobile research firm Apteligent's report, claims that global use of Samsung’s phone is still higher than many high profile phones that have been recently launched.

    The report claims Note 7 usage has exceeded those of the LG V20, the HTC Bolt and the OnePlus 3T. However, other phones launched during that time, including the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, and the Sony Xperia XZ, are currently exceeding Note 7 use, according to the report. Although I returned Note 7, I would of been willing to hold on to it longer if my Pixel XL did not arrived.

    The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, are still doing very well. In all honesty, some of the phones on this list have had limited availability, such as the LG V20, which has yet to be released to Europe.

    With the next update coming to brick the Note 7 on January 5 and 8th. There are Note 7 owners that have blocks on there phone to block all updates. (Verizon Rep said) The end of the stance will come when the providers turnoff the phones this will come without an update. They will send a text first then giving you a last chance to return your phone by a certain date. After that date your phone will be shut off! If this is true it will definitely be the end.

    The real question is can a Suit be filed to leave them alone and anyone at this point it at own risk and can not go after Samsung? Why lot file a petition to sign a legal Liability Waiver? not sure if that would help. it does stink losing your right to choose to keep something you purchased

    The real question is . Do you have the resources and the money to fight them? Is it worth it when a new Note 8 will come next August or by the the end of next year?

    What bugs me is losing our upgrade to purchase the Note 8 when it comes out. Unless we return the Note 7 and buy a device out of pocket until the 8 is released, our upgrade is wasted on a lesser device.

    The same thing thing they've already done for other Note 7 users! That's what! You guys think you know so much! I'm not going to bother telling you as it's business of those on the Note 7 Rebels Facebook page! You have no need to know!

    No it doesn't! If you still have your Note I suggest you file with the FCC to air your complaint! Your carrier will have to answer! If you don't advocate for yourself then you'll just have to accept any raw deal your carrier and Samsung give you!
