i love this phone. i gave up my iphone for this larger phone and am very happy with it. Only two problems....it is like a carrier specific phone and hard to find case etc sized to it. Its not a standard J7. That is a minor issue. What is a major issue is that the charging port does not always work. its hit or miss whether it will charge my phone when i plug it in. I have read this is a problem with some galaxy phones. I bought another battery (not easy to find) and a generic external wall charger and this has kept me charged but it is a hassle. Fortunately this phone carries a charge for about two days which makes it a bit easier but it also takes a while for the battery to charge. it does not seem to charge overnight. not sure what the issue is but not sure how long this phone will remain useful, even though i love it. beautiful display and arrived in like new/perfect condition.
I needed a new phone with more memory and I loved my last Samsung phone. I haven't had any problems with the mechanics of Samsung products and most of the people in my house own Samsung phones. The blue color is a nice change, too, from the normal white or black choices out there.
Please note: Verizon's "variant" of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are completely SIM unlocked and ready to be used with another SIM of your choosing — for example, T-M***** networks. Unlike the models from some other carriers, there aren't any extra hoops to go through on the Verizon Galaxy S7 / Edge — if you want to use another carrier's SIM, just pop it in and you're basically good to go. The phone will likely switch to a "Global" network mode once it detects a non-Verizon SIM, but you can switch over to "LTE/GSM/UMTS" mode under "Mobile networks" in the settings in a matter of seconds. Chances are the phone won't load the proper APN settings for the carrier (which makes sense), but those are easy enough to find and enter manually as well. This product is excellent. This is my 2nd one. I definitely suggest purchasing the extended damage contract. I used my damage contract on my prior S& Edge. I needed another phone and didn't want to buy the ALL GLASS S8 line. I had seen tons of them for resale online after being cracked within days of purchase -- The price of beauty? LIkely, the next iteration will have even stronger "Gorilla" Glass.
