Default What replacement device is replacing the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

People are being to told to get a replacement device for their Samsung
Galaxy Note 7, but what replacement devices are people getting?

The recall just says you can get a replacement device.

Do you know what replacement device people are getting from their carriers
and from the stores?

some are even keeping their note 7.

what part of 'full refund' is not clear?

after getting a full refund, they can buy *anything* they want, whether
it's another android phone, an iphone or just keep the cash and go back
to their old phone.

You mean the one that they traded in for their Note 7?
The carrier will really be able to give that back to them?
That'd be a first :-) !

not everyone trades in a phone because the carrier gives them very
little in trade.

they can make quite a bit more selling it on ebay, or they might decide
to keep it to give to another family member. kids often get hand me
down phones.

Round here people seem to get hand-me-down phones FROM their kids!

Someone I know got his iPhone handed-down from his grandson.

Thanks for the additional helpful information.
The Best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Alternatives
By Sascha Segan, October 11, 2016
http://www.pcmag.com/news/347801/the...7-alternatives

They suggest that it's a bad time for an *immediate* replacement of the
iphone7-like Note 7 because two very able iPhone7-like compeitors are
nearly on the market:
a. LG V20
b. Google Pixel

Given what's actually available today, they suggest, in this order:
1. Galaxy S7 Edge$789.99 at T-Mobile
(same processor, same modem, same cameras, but without the pyrotechnics)
2. Apple iPhone 7 Plus$769.99 at T-Mobile
(lower screen res, but good otherwise, but without a removable battery)
3. LG V10 $430.00 at Amazon
(it's the "leading large phone with removable batteries")
4. Moto Z Force Droid $720.00 at Verizon Wireless
(nearly unbreakable screen)
5. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 $504.97 at Amazon
(it has the S pen if that's what you wanted out of the Note 7
but it doesn't have a micro-SD slot but it doesn't explode either)
6. ZTE Axon 7 $483.39 at Amazon
(Editor's Choice competitor to the Note 7, at far less the price!)

Thanks for being helpful by helping to answer the question faithfully for
all to benefit from the effort.
