Not too many people get to pull off an amazing comeback by seizing victory from the jaws of defeat. Off the top of our heads, the 1986 New York Mets come to mind. One strike away from losing the World Series to the Boston Red Sox in six games, the Mets overcame a two-run deficit with an amazing victory. The next night, the team won the World Series in seven games. Then, there is the Miami Heat. Down by three with seconds left in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals against the Spurs, Chris Bosh grabbed the rebound off a missed three point shot from LeBron James, and casually fed the ball to Ray Allen along the right wing. Allen's three-pointer tied the game and sent it to overtime. The Heat won Game 6 and Game 7 the next night for their second consecutive title.

Now, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is attempting an even more difficult comeback. After a pair of recalls last year left the phablet as the butt of explosion and fire jokes, Samsung is bringing a refurbished version of the handset to certain markets. The Galaxy Note 7 was on the way to becoming Sammy's most popular phone ever when the shit hit the fan. Needless to say, Samsung took a terrific wallop in the pocketbook which is not going to be recouped by offering the refurbished model.

Today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7R (the "R" stands for refurbished, obviously) has made an appearance through a merchant in China. The back of the phone has a distinctive "R" symbol on its back to prevent someone from ripping off a buyer by selling one of the recalled units. The recalled models now have the functionality of a brick.

There are two versions of the Galaxy Note 7R being offered, depending on where you live. One version for the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific markets comes with a 3200mAh battery, a 300mAh lower capacity than the juicer on the original model. That device is priced at the equivalent of $521 USD. Another model, priced at the equivalent of $580 USD, is equipped with a 3500mAh battery that is modified to prevent any explosions.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 expected to take center stage at IFA in Berlin in September, there is no rush to pick up the Note 7R, especially since the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a higher capacity battery that will benefit from Sammy's new 8-point check up. It also is expected to feature an edge-to-edge screen similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, and a rear-facing dual camera setup.

The s8 + is amazing I don't need a note 8. However the rumors might make me trade my s8 in. Some stuff we might see

*6.4 4k plus display
*quad speakers two on the front plus one on the top and bottom
*Maybe better display performance
* 1000 fps slow mo
*4k 120fps
* full pressure screen
* fingerprint in display
* better battery
* better face unlocking
* dual cameras, telephoto and wide angle maybe

I'm trading in regardless as this is the first phone I put on payments and didn't buy outright due to the whole Note 7 thing. I knew the S8 was going to have some of the features the Note 7 had, ie iris scanner, hdr screen etc and the S8 would be a window to the Note 8 so I did the math and went with payments on this one, plus I miss the S-Pen... But with the those wishlist specs you just posted... Samsung can hack my bank account now!!! Those specs would make any other phone irrelevant for the power users!!

I know I'm gonna want a Note 8, but I'm gonna wait till December to get one. Fall is gonna be financially busy, and the wait will be worth it.

By the way he got the s8+ and he has always said he would end up with both at some point I do believe.

I sure did sissy. I'm still waiting on him to post the link. I'll end up with the N8, but I have adult things going on, that require my financial attention. The N8 is a want, not a need. I have the S8 Plus, the 7 Plus, the iPad Pro 12.9, the Gear S3, the Apple Pencil, and just sold my Apple Watch...I'm good lol.

I want the s8+ but I want the note 8 more so going to wait.

The S8 Plus actually makes me cool not having a Note, it's just that good. Nothing can replace the S-Pen, so I know I'll be getting one, but some major business needs attending to. It's important, and puts the Note 8 on the back burner till December.

My iPhone plans are wait and see at the moment. If Apple doesn't give it true multitasking, I'm skipping it. No more one trick ponies for me. Split view is big time important for me, and I don't see why Apple won't give it to the iPhone.

I think it's greed, as the won't give the iPad 3D Touch. They need to differentiate the two. Want split screen get an iPad, want 3D Touch get an iPhone.

I'm keeping my 7 Plus, just so I won't be tempted to buy the new one, if there's no true multitasking. As long as I have one, I'm good. Pull it out the drawer, when I want to use it it's been on ice, since I got the S8 Plus.

I really love the ipad pro. It's actually my favorite iOS device. IOS is better on it, than the iPhone. It's my media consumption device. Lotsa movies, music vids, tv shows (walking dead) on it.

Did anyone with an AT&T S8/Plus download the latest update? It's 480mb, and makes the phone even faster and smoother. I think m it also fixes the DQA popup message.

I got Verizon we don't get sh!t. Our only update was for app layout for the new screen and a new camera icon. No Samsung cloud, they remove enhanced messages, no Samsung music app, or video app, or Samsung pay you have to download those. Then even removed Amazon from bixby until just recently just because. Still waiting on the gear s3. Every single phone from them get the last update by a wide margin.

Did you get it on a Contract? If not, definitely return that device and grab the international Exynos variant from B&H Photos, here ( https://is.gd/Kobgf9 ). Not only will updates arrive more promptly, but you'll be getting better battery life and performance, especially in terms of memory management.

We're already over half a year past the Note 7, at this point, I'd rather wait to see what the Note 8 has in store. If it's innovative and adds more handy functionality, similar to how the Note 7 was compared to the Ntoe 5, I'd defintely go for it. Otherwise, the wait is still worth it as I'd be getting a good discount on the Exynos Note 7R...patiently waiting.
