What he said though, is that he was keeping his Note 7 until at&t receives his replacement unit, which he did.

I gotta say, see the last 5 words of post 11. I do not want the new iPhone, the note 7 is better. And see post 18 as well.

Wow. Some of you Samsung fans are really taking this personal. You need to realize that there is no love lost between Samsung and LG are bitter rivals. It goes beyond the boardroom. Employess of each company are not even supposed to be seen in public with their rivals. They have own competing sports teams in Taiwan and even competing sports bar establishments.

That's what happens when people from the same family (in-laws) start two competing businesses.

Lg causing no harm to us consumers,we deside what we like. Sammy has a problem with their notes series and a big risk to us, So i would rather have a safe one than having a time bomb ticking to go in flames..

LG v20 is a better device than the note 7. Dont know why the note 7 is not just forgotten. All it has is a great display. All other departments are equalled or even surpassed by other devices, for example the V20.

LG must be the most lame company on the planet. Such an extreme inferiority complex towards Samsung... Let them first make a decently build and good looking device that actually sells well before they comment on Samsung.
