    Size of phone vs screen size, battery life and that Coral Blue color were what I liked about the S7 edge.
    I compared my S7edge to the S8 and S8+ before settling on the S8. And since no blue color was offered I decided to go for the Orchid Grey.
    Ohh okay, that makes a lot of sense actually. The Coral Blue is stunning. You chose well with the Orchid Grey, that color is also like no other. Nicee.

    Small phones are nice. I kinda prefer having screens at different sizes but two phones at 5.7" makes the transition from tablet to phone not as bad.

    So it looks like I may be getting 7.0 on the Mi Note 2.

    The honor 8 started out ok but wasn't that good on 7.0, honestly.

    Yeah the Honor 8 was the only Android I kept for a "long time" because battery life was so nice for me. Then 7.0 knocked it down and I didn't like it.

    I have been tempted to try out the Honor 8 again but then I remembered 7.0 and how that was for battery life and I don't pull the trigger.

    Speaking of being tempted, the Nextbit Robin is on sale on Amazon for 118 (today only). The idea of it is nicer than the phone is. LOL.

    Can I say that after a week and two days, I hate how iOS 10 does notifications? I always forget to clear them and the fact that they aren't grouped by app is just dumb.

    Or, maybe not. We'll see when the update drops at the end of the week.

    Phone was solid. Only thing that killed it for me was the battery life and the speakers when taking calls wasn't stereo. Build was passable.

    A very solid first effort...needed to have been priced at $350 at launch as when the big boys like the Axon 7, Idol 4S, Honor 8 and OnePlus 3 came out, it was DOA.

    Betcha Apple handles notifications well when it's trying to keep its hands in your wallet...

    I agree with you about the Robin. I liked it but it felt too big for a 5.2" phone, and yeah the battery life and average camera wasn't doing it for me, but mainly the battery. I would have loved to see what they would have created next. I'm hearing that hardware support is done after next month though :/

    Keyboard and notifications are the two biggest fails on ifruit devices.

    You're wrong for that xd

    Well, they have made one of my favorite small phones ever, but aside from that, eh. Still haven't turned on iMessage all this time. I think I'll be alright if I had a solid phone alternative. I'm just stubborn so I'm still not ready to sit on this compromise of a phone.

    I'm really trying to think of what makes sense for me. I'll seek something...eventually.

    That's so true. I tried using the default keyboard and I lasted one day. Just one.

    Omg my bank massively increased my credit card limit randomly. Goodness.

    I feel like I leveled up but I'm not going to go nuts. It's good to have just in case.

    I keep debating on trying out the 6s. I feel like I should also give it a go too.

    Sometimes the "need to know so I feel that I'm making the best decision" part of my brain annoys me.

    I feel like in September, it will disappear from Apple stores and the site. The only way to get it would be secondhand.

    Part of me says yes and the other part of me says no. This is only my problem, but I think I will resolve it by not doing anything for now. Easier said than done.
