Samsung may remotely shut down all Note 7 units.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 7, you will have to return it not only because it could catch fire any moment, but also because it will be remotely shutdown by the company soon. The device was actually a great smartphone, so it might not be easy to replace it; however, here are a few options that you may consider.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
It has a slightly smaller (5.5-inch) Edge display, the same brilliant cameras, water-resistance rating and internals as the Note 7 does. The only things missing are the iris scanner and the S-Pen. Besides, Samsung will also give you $100 in bill credit if you choose the S7 Edge or any other Samsung device in exchange for the Note 7.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5
If you can live with a SoC that's more than a year old, but still performs very well, the Galaxy Note 5 is a great choice. It offers most of the S-Pen functionalities that came with the Note 7, on a flat panel.
Google pixel XL
There is nothing missing in the Pixel XL, which features a 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with a Quad High Definition resolution and the Snapdragon 821 chip which is even faster than the SD 820 which the Note 7 is packing. The 12-mp rear snapper is arguably even better than the latest Samsung sensors, and coupled with Google Assistant and other continuous software updates by Google, this could be one of the best phones to go for right now.
