    Hi everybody,

    I just have a simple question here, what do you think: with Note7 recall should we expect higher demand for upcoming iPhone7? If yes, we will have higher demand for iPhone or iPhone 7 plus ?

    It'll be small if any I think. I feel like it will only have an effect on the people who wanted a new phone but didn't want to wait on Apple.

    The note recall will have very little impact on the iPhone launch in my opinion. Note users need Notes. They will wait or buy/use an older device.

    Nothing happens in a vacuum, so to speak. I don't think it will have a significant impact, but if even one person out of every thousand who was thinking about getting a Note 7 decides to get the iPhone instead because of this then demand has increased.

    I don't think that Note and iPhone users are mutually exclusive. I, for one, have been considering both phones, and I'm still undecided. The Note 7 recall will be one of many factors that influences my phone purchasing decision this year.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I'd say probably a little.
    Those that were between the note and iPhone purchase will most likely go with the iPhone.
    Also those that got turned off by this fiasco might consider going with an iPhone instead of Samsung.

    Nah no way. A lot of people (The Average Joe) will see the iphone 7 is the same design as the 6s and will hold off until next year for the next one. I think it will push more people to try Samsung for a change.

    I however will be buying the 7.

    Might increase the sales of the 7 Plus just slightly, but I don't think it will have any sort of major impact.

    I certainly expect a very high iPhone 7 demand, higher than the 6S series. But I also believe Note 7 will not be the only reason.

    To be honest I think the same.

    I'am sure quite a few would of been put off the note 7 now. Not many but some.

    Samsung will fix the issue and the model will be back on shelves. Apple should not rely on a sales boost from a device that is out temporarily.

    I expect high demand at first, then, like the 6s, it will slow down and end-up being a bit less than the 6s.

    The market is already too saturated with excellent phones since last year. Plus it seems like the novelty has somewhat slowed down in China now that it's not a forbidden fruit anymore.
    Huawei, ZTE, Oppo, Meizu, Xiaomi, and etc. All have excellent phones with decent prices that are selling well in the Asia Pacific market.
    It won't prevent Apple from artificially inflating the demand by not stocking the Apple stores well.
