You should be happy with the S7 Edge.
Phones like the Asus Zenfone 3, the Honor 8, or the One Plus 3, would have to be ordered through Amazon, B&H Photo, New Egg...etc..
Happy for you KJ, hope you like it.

Hopefully you'll be able to exchange it back for the Note 7 when the replacement is available. Sounds like at this point the only reason for you to be a Samsung customer is the stylus…
@dmapr: That (the stylus) is indeed pretty much the case.
With all the other stuff going on in your life, you didn't need this Note 7 fiasco, Kevin.
Sorry that Samsung blew this.
You said that it appears that Samsung knew of the problems and shipped anyways. I haven't seen that, but boy that is horrible if true.

@viewfly: Consider: They precharge all the batteries before shipping, otherwise all phones would arrive dead. During that mass charging, it would be hard to believe that, given the propensity of these batteries to explode, that Samsung didn't already know. I would take a hunch that, given the percentages, they kept their fingers crossed and shipped anyway because they had pre-orders looming over their heads. They probably weren't sure which was the greater of two evils: 1) Have consumers who already pre-ordered ticked off or, 2) Wait and do damage control.
Something else that made me "hmmmm, huh" is that they limited the number of markets they deployed to initially. I can't help but wonder if they were waiting to see what the fallout was.
I just read today that Samsung is pushing out an update that prevents any Note 7's still in consumers hands that will only allow the device to charge to 60 percent. The battery life on the Note7 is already lousy. And compounding the bad decision is the fact that the batteries are the hottest when they are in the mid-range of charging -- so the patch does nothing but salve over their consciences. Once it gets past 85%, it cools down because the way they designed the charging.
Oh boy. Looks a like the gamble didn't pay off.
Wonder who's heads will role on that one.
Their brand has been badly, badly tarnished.

I saw something today in a French newspaper that mentioned a 6 year old boy getting burnt and sent to the hospital from a Note 7
