Samsung is in full damage control mode as exploding Galaxy phone reports don’t seem to be slowing down even with the Note 7 recall effectively going global of late, and while the Korean tech giant would never admit it, your best replacement for the newest flagship phablet is probably the company’s previous hero device.
Think about it, why wait up to a few more weeks, risk the next Galaxy Note 7 batch presenting its own manufacturing flaws, and settle for a modest J-series handheld in the meantime, if you can even get that from your retailer of choice, when the S7 Edge is here, (largely) safe to use, and considerably cheaper to purchase?
Better yet, the spring 2016 5.5-inch dual-curved beast hooks you up with a free copy of the “new” Samsung Gear VR headset on British shores… if you hurry. Any Galaxy S7 Edge order placed at “participating” UK retailers between September 14 and October 5 qualifies for a complimentary second-gen virtual reality gadget, which you’ll have 60 days to claim.
Normally, the rehashed SM-R323 consumer edition is worth around £120, whereas the phone on sale costs £640 through Samsung’s local e-store in pink, black, gold, white or silver. Aside from S Pen capabilities, iris recognition and a slightly bigger screen, this is the exact same device as the Note 7, minus the faulty battery. Truly a no-brainer deal you’re looking at here.
