Tell basically every tech site and reviewer that. Those phones are among the best rated phones available (if a bit expensive it must be said). Their predecessors were also all ranked in the top 5 of phones at the time (S6 and Note 5). But I would love to hear your idea of what a great phone is and why if you really believe the S7 and Note 7 are crap? I'm sure this will be good... rolleyes.gif

I would agree with you as the hardware is pretty nice but Samsung puts the most annoying garbage on their phones and tablets(at least this used to be the case). I'm a bigger fan of pure Android though.

Use the stock Google launcher then. I don't find the current iteration of Samsung's UI to be all that intrusive at all on my Note 5.

Heh, Looks like i got the right Iphone with the 6s then.

I have 2 phones cause unfortunately phones suck these days.

I have a iphone because it just works unlike android

And i have my blackberry cause its the only android phone with a keyboard, Until the next one comes out.

Also why is it stupidly hard to get a good phone with a screen from 4.5 - 5 inches, Dont need any more than that, If viewing space is a problem make phones square again.

Iphone 6 plus user here, this is indeed a problem. First phone I had was still under warranty and got replaced(BUT, they told me, only once...). So second time this happened(yes it happened to the replacement as well, and it's an infuriating experience), I just went to a local mall(live in Shanghai/China) and they replaced the IC for around 40usd. My wife, who is also using an Iphone 6 plus had the same happening, and we repaired in the same shop. No further complaints so far rolleyes.gif

I would agree, but now have two colleagues with a broken S7 edge... Their warranty didn't get honoured either, with one of them the phone crapped out after just two weeks...

Their product is faulty so how dare they state that they won't repair it the second time it fails due to their bad design. These are generally things you can sue over. (and you would in my eyes doing the right thing)

As someone who has went out and bought an s7 after owning the Oneplus one, Oneplus two, and the Zenphone2. Which would all come under your cheap phones. There's a reason they're cheaper than the s7.
