Galaxy Note 5
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a year old, and it's the phone the Note 7 replaced. That said, it's still a highly capable device with plenty to offer for Note 7 fans. If you love the Note experience and are afraid of the Note 7, the Note 5 is your best bet. It's still a wonderful smartphone.
It comes with the same size 5.7-inch display, a fast processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and looks almost identical aside from having a flat display. Users won't get a microSD slot or water-resistance, but those may not be 100% important to everyone.
Jump back to the Galaxy Note 5, or use something else until the new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are released in March.

Oh, and if you love the curved screen but don't need the S-Pen stylus, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is basically a Galaxy Note 5/7 without a stylus. So keep that in mind.
