    Bought an S7 edge for my sister from the cyber Monday sale at Best buy but I'm debating if I should return it or not.
    She still has inlaws with her for this week and next. By that time though, the return period is up essentially.

    Edit: Looking at the alternatives for my sister and where to get it from, I'll have to make a decision soon.

    Excellent job Rue. I love the Euro plumbing fixtures, too bad they can't be sold here in the Colonies (code issues).

    My sister got back to me and she thinks that the s8 is "a little long", just as I thought. I need to find out how much better the battery life on the S7 Edge is over the regular one.

    That's odd though not surprising. I personally think codes are enforced just to make money half the time.

    My time dealing with CSA, UL, IEC and other agencies makes me certain of this.

    99 can better answer that. From what I remember he told me, the S7 gets the better battery life. If she is like you and prefers it compact, she can still make out decently with the S7.

    Hmm, that's interesting. I mainly got the S7 edge for her because the battery life was said to be better. If it's not worth it (she doesn't want it big but she said that she would take it for better battery life), an exchange is in my future. She likes it small but not as small as I go lol, so the S7 would be preferred.

    What we've seen with Samsung is that since the S6 the larger variant always gets better battery life. If she's chasing the better battery life, the bigger is the way to go.

    You may want to poke around with others to do some research. Or try to catch 99 if you can, as he's used them both.

    I can't speak for the S7 but I can definitely vouch for the S8+. It's got killer battery life.

    I can believe that. I'm going to let her try it out and see how she deals with the edge. If she hates it, I have seen a few deals for the regular S7.

    I learnt it in school when I was younger but that was a long time ago and the French in Canada is different than the French in France so though it might have helped it may only have confused things.

    We're going to take classes when we get there.

    Made it really early to the conference that is about 50 miles away from home.
    It is my first and it will be interesting, hopefully.

    Unfortunately I forgot to carry business cards. Can you tell this is my first time? Lol

    How else are you supposed to learn if not through mistakes? You won't forget the next time. If it makes you feel better, I leave my cards in my truck ALL the time.

    S7 edge battery life is better than S7.
    S8 battery life is quite good though and supposedly S8+ is even better.
    I have had no issues with my S8 and am beginning to like it better than my S7edge.

    So I get a notification on my phone and it's weird because I see no live tiles active. Pull down the shade and see this advisory. Are you effin kidding me? Heat advisory when it's "only" 86 and thunderstorms 10 miles to the West over the Everglades? Oh yeah, the heat index is in the 110s - welcome to South Florida, now go home.

    So I like the look of the Moto Z² Force. I don't like the smaller battery and am indifferent about the missing headphone jack. I dislike the price. I'm wary about the camera and Moto software update policy. Still, I'll go look at it in the stores.

    You're so right about that. I did regret not having them at one point today so I can say that I have learned for sure.

    Thank you! It was an interesting conference.

    It was a conference for academic libraries (librarians and library staff both included) and it was really good. It was nice to see some people who look like me doing this too, along with other young people in the field too. The sessions were great and I went with two of my coworkers (We all rode separately). I'm glad that I went.

    Hmm interesting. That's good to know, thank you.

    What makes it better for you (I mean liking the s8 over the s7 edge)? The display? Battery life? Something else?
