    Being we went full Samsung Gear Fit 2's, Wireless chargers, Gear VR, wall chargers and car chargers, we are leaning to the S7 Edge to be able to most of the items we have already invested in. I want VZW to leave our plan open for trade in so we can Upgrade to an S8 or Note 8 when they come out since we will be taking a step backwards with the Edge.

    What are you guys planning on going with and/or hoping to do in all this mess?

    I'm thinking I'm gonna go with the LG V20 for the year, although all this recall business has pushed my upgrade Availability back like 2 months possibly 3.

    Either the S7 edge, or the Google Pixel + that comes out next week.

    I just confirmed that we have our Note 7s free of charge and they still don't know what to do if i decide to hold out till at least the S8 series.

    To be honest iOS isn't as bad as every android lover has made it out to be. It's actually been quite versatile and you can do a lot with it. Also...kind of a slap in the face but all the Google Apps work and look better in iOS.

    I've heard that from folks that bounce back and forth between the two.

    I haven't tried iOS since like the iPhone 4. I know it's become a lot more like Android since then and the app stores are comparable.

    I just don't like the lack of a real back button and the fact that the settings for apps are all lumped together in the settings app instead of being within the apps themselves. At least, that's been my experience with it when helping others.

    Like I've said elsewhere, I've joined some competitions to try and win an iPhone 7. I'd definitely like to play with one and give it a better shot than I did back in the day, but can't see spending money on one without knowing for sure that I'll enjoy it.

    Even then, I've paid for so many apps on Android that I'd have to buy again that I'm not really sure if it'd be worth it.

    The back button takes a little getting used to. But the settings for the apps are in the apps. The app settings in the settings app are for notifications and permissions basically, and that's no much different than android.

    Well I ended up going with an S7 Edge since my work jumped on the bandwagon with banning Note 7's... I wish Samsung would make the Edge UI more like the Note!

    Congrats ! I've heard they wanted to bring more features over to other devices ...hopefully they get some ported over ...S7 Edge is a solid device really can't go wrong ...
