I'll def be back if I need to do anything software wise! 

 

I have the S7 Edge also, it was my substitute for the note 7. I like the phone but its no Note, first year ive been without a Note since the Note 2 was released!

 

It has a lot of great features, but yeah occasionally those nice curves get ya, lol

 

 

 

I just placed my pre-order with Harvey Norman. Roll on Sept 22nd!!!

MissyMoo: Anyone else who ordered through Harvey Norman get an email about the order? Is that standard for a pre order? It said its on back order and I can expect it in approx 19 days.
It better be available for pick up on the Friday!


 

I placed my pre-order this morning. They were quick processing it.  Got updates that it was processing shortly after ordering then 30mins later it was updated as status "back-ordered".

 

Email says its due in 16 days, that matches the 22nd for retail release. Hoping so! I want to pick it up from my local Harvey Norman on the 22nd!

 

ohhhh orchid grey! :) after over 3 years i'll finally have the phone of my choice!

i received my quick charger and chrome cast yesterday from Noel Leeming. i got an email today with a tracking number for the sd card. now just waiting on the phone. 

 

their pre order delivery system is pretty weird, one shipping cost will end up covering three separate courier deliveries.

Very weird. Some places wont release thw phone until the 15th and you have to have the phone registered/activated to get the freebies at a later date.

On another note, it says the phone comes with a clear case. Ive bought a couple of cheap ones off wish and a skin




Also been considering this case but Im unsure on the quality.
