Due to many reports of explosions, Samsung created a recall and replacement program to fix the safety problems of their Galaxy Note 7 device. But unfortunately, the problems persisted, and some replacement devices have been reported to have explosion related issues again.
Network providers like AT&T and T-Mobile have halted Note7 replacements and offered refunds, and many popular online platforms have officially retracted its recommendation of the device on Tuesday. If you are now looking for a device to replace your Samsung Galaxy Note 7, this article has got you covered. Here are five great choices you can choose from.

6 Alternatives to Samsung Galaxy Note 7
1. The OnePlus 3 The OnePlus 3 is a great alternative to the Note7, and at $400, it’s much cheaper, too. The specs are at a comparable level to Nexus, Galaxy and iPhones, but without the premium price tag.
2. Samsung Galaxy S7 EDGE If you still trust Samsung, go for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It’s a bit smaller than the Note7, but it has the same curved screen design without the explosions.
3. Motorola Moto Z The Moto Z boasts a sleek, modular design. A couple of the phone’s best features are its water resistance, responsive fingerprint scanner and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. There’s no headphone jack though — just like the iPhone 7
4. LG V20 The LG V20 is the first smartphone to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed. This phone is great for photos with improved electronic image stabilization, and its sound quality is great. Also, it’s good at not catching on fire.
5. The Infinix Note 3 The Infinix Note 3 was released sometime in August and it features a 13MP, 5MP rear and front camera respectively, 16 GB ROM, 2GB RAM with a 4500MAh battery for long lasting usage. In addition to that, the phone features a finger print sensor for better security and for sure – it has a headphone jack.
6. The Pixel and Pixel XL
The Pixel and Pixel XL have not yet been released — October 13 is the pre-order date. Our official review is forthcoming, but we got the opportunity to try the device at a recent media event. We liked the design and new features — and it even has a headphone jack.
