What is the best Galaxy Note 7 alternative? [Poll of the Week]

Even Samsung's replacement Galaxy Note 7 devices are overheating. With that said, what is the best Note 7 alternative out there?

Published onOctober 10, 2016

Last week's poll summary: This one took me by surprise. Out of almost 6,300 total votes, 39.7% of our readers said they will not buy the Google Pixel or Pixel XL. 36.2% said they plan on buying the Pixel XL, while 22.7% of our readers said they're going to buy the Pixel.

If you still own a Galaxy Note 7, you should probably return it.

We’ve been hearing more and more reports of replacement Galaxy Note 7s overheating, which is a really bad thing. Carriers around the world are halting sales of the device, and even Samsung said it’s ‘adjusting’ Note 7 production after recent reports.

The silver lining to the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco

So if you’re planning on returning your Note 7 (which you definitely should), what are your alternatives? The new LG V20 is certainly up towards the top of the list. Not only does it have military-grade shock absorbency, a removable battery and a Quad DAC, it also comes with impressive manual controls for photo and video capture. It’s basically the phone for power users.

The V20 isn’t your only option, though. Google’s new Pixel XL is also a great smartphone if you’re looking for a big screen and a great camera. It’s also the first phone to come with Google’s powerful new Assistant. Looking for something that’s a little more Samsung-y? The Galaxy S7 Edge is still one of the best Android phones out there. It has that beautiful, curved display and basically all of the same software features, sans S-Pen.

There are, of course, plenty of other options to choose from. So we want to know – what do you think is the best Galaxy Note 7 alternative? Be sure cast your vote in the poll below, and if there’s something you need to add, feel free to speak up in the comment section. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!
