Poll results: the Note 7 has voter's attention, iPhone 2016 stays in the background
Back in 2015 when Samsung started pulling its event that showcases the new Note series a bit earlier in the Summer. While it was usually done at the start of IFA in the beginning of September, last year, it was done in mid August, and this year, we get to see the new Noteat the start of August. The reason for this, numerous leaks and reports claim, is the fact that Samsung wants its top-tier smartphone to get some time to gain momentum in sales before Apple releases its ever-popular iPhone.

Whether this tactic is actually viable when we are talking about such high-class smartphones may be a bit arguable. Most iPhone fans are not very likely to grab a Note, just because it comes a month early, and most Android users are very well aware that the Note smartphones are among the best that the platform has to offer. In fact, we decided to ask you, our readers, if you have your mind set up on which one of these phones you are going for, or if you are actually waiting to see both announced, before making the call. Here's what voters answered:

Which one are you planning to buy – the Note 7 or 2016 iPhone / Plus?

Note 7 all the way!
