next flagship phone dilemma
1. iPhone 7 Plus - I use the headphone jack a lot, and don't want an adapter, or want to use bluetooth. However iPhone 7 Plus may have best resale value.
2. Note 7 - Verizon version has crippling carrier bloatware, and not sure if the Verizon Note 7 has the LTE bands for AT&T or T-Mobile, unlike the iPhone.
3. LG V20 - really like the removable battery, wish it had the stylus like the Note. Not sure if it will have Verizon carrier bloat, and not sure if it will have the bands for AT&T / T-mobile.
Usually I buy the iPhone, use it for a while until I tire of it and sell it. Now it's not so cut and dry any more. I'd buy the Note 7 or LG V20 in a heartbeat if I knew it didn't have Verizon bloat and was compatible with all other carriers.
I'm leaning towards buying the LG V20 because I like the removable battery, and want to reward manufacturers for retaining useful features like that. I don't want to reward Apple for taking away another useful consumer feature (headphone... never had removable battery or expandable storage... boo).
Wondering what fellow smart phone aficionados think, and recommend.
