Now that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is officially discontinued after reports of even the replacement devices catching fire were confirmed, here are a few other options that you can check out instead.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Although it's priced less than the Note 7, the S7 Edge isn't really lacking much in comparison. The retina scanner, the stylus (S-pen) and a slightly larger 5.7-inch display are the only things that differentiate the two. In fact, the S7 Edge rocks the same camera sensors, 4GB of RAM, SD 820/Exynos 8890 SoC and 1440p Super AMOLED panel (5.5-inch) as its larger sibling.
Google Pixel XL
When it comes to software stability and security, it would be hard to recommend anything over Android's greatest flagship yet; the Google Pixel XL with a 5.5-inch 1440p AMOLED panel. It's also more powerful than the Note 7 with a SD 821 SoC under the hood. It has exceptional cameras that might simply be the best that any smartphone has offered yet.
The final recommendation on this list will include the LG V20, which also has a 5.7-inch 1440p panel like the Note 7, along with an additional 2.1-inch display on top of the main one. We expect nothing short of spectacular clicks from the upcoming device as well (dual rear camera) because LG is well known for endowing its high-end smartphones with brilliant cameras.
In case you haven't already, switch your Note 7 off and return it immediately.
