    So the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is out. Personally, I have the iPhone 6s+ but I have the liberty of upgrading 3 times a year at no extra cost if I want to.

    So I was thinking of getting the S7 Edge in May, try it out for 4 months, and then switch to the iPhone 7 when it comes out in September. The only problem would be transferring all my stuff to android and getting use to using android since I've been on the iPhone for years.

    What are your thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge? Do you have one? Is it a good phone and why do you think it is or isn't?

    Get the galaxy and T-mobile is offering a free Gear VR powered by occurs as an attachment for the galaxy. I got one and all I have to say is it is AWSOME!

    Even though I'm a pretty avid Apple user, I would probably go with the S7 Edge.

    I also had a play with the Galaxy Gear VR today and it's awesome.

    iPhone for sure, I just don't like Android, and it's for reason, I had 4-5 Android phones and their speed always went down for 30% in 2 months of use.

    iPhone 4 is still faster than my mothers S4

    Get the Nexus 6P instead. You're gonna break your S7 when you come across the Touchwiz bullshit on it.
    Go with the Nexus,stock Android and it's a very a good device.

    Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is pretty much superior in every way compared to the Iphone 6S Plus

    iPhones have a nice design and they're easy to use, but they are shit phones. Their battery is shit, their software that talks to the battery is shit. The people at the genius bar are shit. Their phone support staff are shit. Their marketing is fucking annoying. If something doesn't work how it should, you're fucked.

    I think you have too much time on your hands. Meanwhile some kid in India is outworking both of us and he's never even seen a phone in his life.

    I don't keep up with smartphones like I used to, but if I had to choose between the two, I suppose I would go for the S7 as I've been using Android phones since the myTouch 3G was released.

    However, I'm personally waiting to see how Project Ara turns out.

    I love my iPhone 6 Plus and there are few things that Samsung cannot replicate to my satisfaction like iMessage, FaceTime and Find My iPhone.
