Samsung Galaxy Note 7–A Bummer For Me

OK so my contract with Verizon is about up and I am ready to think about a new phone. Actually I have been thinking for some time and I had decided (back in July) that it would be the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

I am currently using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and was real happy with what I had read about the Note 7. Back in August I talked with Verizon and I did not like the trade-in I was offered so I decided to wait until the contract was up – well it’s up this month however things have changed.

What to do, what to do.

I really don’t have any phone in mind other than the Note 7. I am a Samsung user. I really should say that we are a Samsung family, refrigerator, washer/dryer, 3 TV’s, and my phone. Oh yes, a Samsung Microwave. Add to this the fact that I recently purchased a Samsung Gear S2 Classic. Samsung Pay works on my watch and I love using it.

Samsung Galaxy S7 EdgeWith all of this I am pre-disposed to buy a new Samsung phone but can’t make up my mind. S7 Edge does not have a stylus, bummer.,

After reading “Galaxy Note 7 Vs Galaxy S7 Edge: What’s The Difference?” from Forbes, I suspect the S7 is my best bet – even without the stylus (darn). I have also recently seen that Samsung has been adding some Note 7 features to the S7, read: “Samsung Galaxy S7 gets the Note 7’s Always on Display upgrade”. Samsumg VR

OK Verizon here I come, well maybe. Still have to think – FOBO (Smile).

I wonder if the Samsung Gear S2 will connect to the new Pixel by Google?  I wonder if they, Verizon, will throw in a Samsung VR – that could make a deal.
