The substitutes
With all jokes aside, having a potentially explosive device in your hands is never a good thing. If you have obtained a Note 7 from an authorised Samsung outlet, you know what to do. Return the device, get your money back. If you’ve decided to purchase the smartphone outside of those warranted walls, well, good luck with that. It’s an unfortunate situation to be in and no one wants their phones to catch fire. Ultimately, this device is simply not safe to use anymore. So what do you do, now? If you are looking for a replacement, or had plans to buy a Note 7, there are some pretty darn solid replacements for the Note 7. Here’s the list of genuine substitutes for the grand failure that is the Note 7.


Galaxy S7 Edge

With a few features missing in this device from the Note 7, this is the closest experience you will get that comes close to the Note. No stylus? No problem. At least you’ll get a bigger battery than the Note in the S7 Edge. Specs: 5.5-inch 1440x2560 pixels display 12-megapixel rear camera (4K video), 5-megapixel front-facing camera Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 32/64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, microSD up to 256GB 3,600mAh battery

LG V20

LG v20111111 Now, here’s a device that was actually competing with the Galaxy Note 7. The design is obviously different, but it’s a slightly larger phone with a removable battery. There’s also that nifty and unique second display at the top for notifications.


5.7-inch 1440x2560 pixels display Dual 16-megapixel rear camera (4K video), 5-megapixel front-facing camera Android 7.0 Nougat, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 32/64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, microSD up to 256GB 3,200mAh battery

Google Pixel XL

Google Pixel XL11111 Yes, it’s fresh out of the factory new, which means it’ll cost you. But talk about perfect timing for the folks at Google. This is your pure stock Android experience. This may not have expandable storage, but the features will definitely have no issues competing with the rest. This slightly larger version of the Pixel is possibly your best bet for a replacement. However, this hasn’t been tested to the fullest, so only time will tell if it can really hang with the big boys.


5.5-inch 1440x2560 pixels AMOLED display 12-megapixel rear camera (4K video), 8-megapixel front-facing camera Android 7.1 Nougat, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 32/128GB of storage, 4GB of RAM 3,450mAh battery
