    If you could put your top 3 note 7 features into an Iphone, what would they be?

    Mine would be

    1. Amoled display
    2. Fast charging
    3. Microsd card storage

    The innovative 'self-destruct' security feature.

    The size of the phone. The Note7 was remarkably compact for such a large display. Despite having the S-Pen, which would also be cool to have on the larger iPhone model.

    I am one who would really appreciate a stylus. I know Jobs was not supportive of this, but it would have benefited me. Samsung did a nice job implementing the stylus into the Note. And it had a lot of capabilities.

    Assuming we are comparing to the Plus model of iPhone:

    1. Display to size ratio, though I don't want the curved edges.

    2. Wireless charging

    That's it. I prefer internal storage to SD, find the pseudo-fast charging the iPhone already uses to be plenty fast, don't prefer SAMOLED or LCD, have no desire to use a stylus on such a small display. I guess if I had to pick a third option, USB-C instead of proprietary lightning but can live with either at this point.

    Iris scanner (would work great with the raise to wake feature)
    Fast charging

    Also, the video capture feature would be great.

    Secure folder

    Emergency contact feature that lets you push one of the buttons rapidly in the case of an emergency so the phone would automatically call whomever you designate as an emergency contact and turn on the camera to record video of your emergency situation. It's a weird feature but useful for a medical condition I have.

    Super AMOLED display

    Wireless charging. I don't care about it but my husband likes it so I'll throw that one in for him.

    Samsung Pay is pretty cool because they give you bonuses and freebies for using it and support it in a way that is kind of fun, so you can earn goodies in your account. Like discounts for more Samsung crap, lol.

    YES! Samsung pay is legit ... I have used it everywhere without problem. I have never once used apple pay when i carry my iphone and i doubt i ever will.

    All of those points you mentioned are great.

    I like the first 2 as well but didn't include those as they are specific to Android--I was trying to keep it to Samsung specific hardware or software.

    Thought of a good 3rd choice...the scrolling screen capture--would love that functionality on any phone, iOS or non-Samsung Android.

    Oh, that's a good one too...would love to have that as well. Would be great if Apple would implement multiple user accounts on iOS while they're at it.

    Oh my goodness I knew I was forgetting something -- scrolling screen capture is brilliant.

    On the flip side I sure wish all devices came with IPhone's mute switch. It's so convenient. Except when I'm changing cases and it gets flipped, that is!

    1. Small bezels
    2. Small bezels
    3. bezels which are smaller

    Then of course the Spen.

    1. Spen (with spen features)
    2. Multi window
    3. Bigger display with smaller bezels, keep the iPhone size the same, but shrink the bezels to Note sized making the screen larger.

    If were going there, how about scrolling that isn't ridiculously slow in web browsers? It's downright infuriating trying to scroll any very long pages on an iPhone. Takes so many flicks compared to the "flick and tap to stop" style that Android uses.

    I doubt Apple will ever have official quick charge or microSD.

    You can already get fast charging by using a 12W charger. Wireless charging is not Wireless either. you still need to connect a wireless port with the plug, but I don't mind one. MicroSD card is pointless either (The phone just keeps asking you to choose which memory space, it's annoying!) and its not free.

    Top 3 features
    1. Better Night time camera and sharp images
    2. AMOLED
    3. Edge-to-edge screen

    I consider my Note 5 an iPad Pro Mini. People compliment me on it.

    1. Amazingly Display size and Colors and Resolution.
    2. All the Stylus features I make so many Notes for groceries or business contacts.
    3. 3.5mm jack yes it's still very usefull
    4. Fast wireless charging

    Available in other browsers like Chrome. Apple simply doesn't use inertia scrolling in Safari for some reason.

    Faster charging through slightly more current isn't exactly "fast charging".

    And realistically even wireless printers or wireless routers aren't wireless by that logic since they have to be plugged into power.

    -Better display
    -Wireless charging built in
    -Iris scan (maybe)
    -Support for an active stylus, like the S-pen.

    Just an FYI to anyone who cares-- I found out this morning that my S7 Edge can do scrolling capture, too. The option came up when I pushed the power and home button at the same time to do a screen capture.
