I've been a Samsung girl for a long time... I have a 6 and it works fine...never feel the need to replace all that frequently. I'd probably take a wait and see attitude before making any changes.

It depends on how much you do on it. I am loving my HTC One M9, yet with few things I'll hope for it to work better. If I'll change phone, I'll definitely go for Samsung. Just as suggested, wait for the fix to be over.

Probably wait for the solution to the battery...... If one wants a fast charge long life battery, the lithum-ion works like to hand granade.  It wants to release all energy stored.  Perhaps they will control the rate of charge make it less flammable. Li-Ion batteries are 25 years old so not a new thing. Needing to fine tune a bit.

For same reason, submarine batteries are still made the old acid car type with eletrode.

In the dark corner of the Internet, a section of Ebay, there exists a 'basket of deplorables' where you can buy banned books like Huckleberry Finn, diesel Volkswagen, Swagway hoover-boards, Takata Airbags, and I'm sure Samsung 7 Note.

Make sure your insurance(s) are up to date and you do not take public

transportation of any kind.
