    We still don't know the exact amount of failures. I know a lot of the claims were bogus. Mine ran fine. For the small amount of units with issues I don't think they should have killed the Note 7. Look at all the iPhone stories lately about melting down. Why are those not recalled?
    Because the Note 7 devices were burning up at a rate of over 250 times that of the iphones? Even more if you consider that multiple generations of iphones were being reported vs 1 generation of Note 7 devices.

    The Note devices sold around 4-5% of the number of devices that the same iPhone generation and have over 10 times as many reports even compared to all iPhone generations.
    Also simply because -- Samsung said "We messed up" when it came to talking about the Note 7 internals so .. That is why they were recalled... Because the people that actually put the thing together said it wasn't safe.

    Not that I had a Note 7 (I have had Note 2 and Note 4 phones in the past) BUT I have a Pixel and I love it, plus I just got a 5.9 inch Mate 9 which has been incredible. If you want a big phone I recommend you check out the Mate 9.

    I think that was a big part of it too.....
    Samsung owned up to it right away.....not like most companies that deny everything.
    There have been 1000s of cases of exploding iphones over the years. But none with the timing and quantities of the N7.

    Strongly disagree and I will go so far as to say that I cannot comprehend why you would think any of that is true. When compared to the Note 7 the pixel has a better camera, better software, better security, better build quality, better support and is better on the spec sheet on almost every category for which they are not tied. The Note 7 does better on the display and on the IP rating and that seems to be it.
    LOL are you being serious?

    Yes, I don't see anything in what you quoted that would suggest I'm not. The Note 7 was a good phone other than the catastrophic build quality issue, but it was by no means the end-all of phones and there are numerous things that it remains behind both Google and Apple on.

    Display: The Note 7 was the best AMOLED available in 2016, on multiple fronts, while the Pixel XL is merely really good. Note 7 wins that one.
    Battery: The Note 7 has the worst battery in the industry, while the Pixel XL is among the best around on battery life and has industry leading charging technology on board. Pixel XL wins that one.
    Build Quality: The Note 7 looked nice and had the best IP rating delivered in a phone so far (along with Sony, Apple, etc) - however the obvious catastrophic build quality issue gives it a zero, while the Pixel XL is has great build quality. Pixel XL wins that one.
    Audio: Both are nearly identical with headphones and both suck without headphones. Tie.
    Performance: This one could be debated depending on whether or not you got an Exynos equipped Note 7 or the Snapdragon 820. On two separate fronts though, both lose to the SD821 and the Note 7 remains off the shortlist of Daydream ready devices. Pixel XL wins that one.
    Storage: The Note 7 has a better base storage size, however the Pixel XL doubles it up with a 128 GB option. Pixel XL wins that one.
    Software: The Note 7 made some improvements on user facing options, however it still loses on resistance to obsolescence, timely updates and lack of bloatware and is the new worst in the industry on the first two in that list. Pixel XL wins that one.
    Security: The Note 7 is no slouch here, however the Pixel XL is the industry leader on security, with better software and hardware security features. Even if one wanted to debate that point, which would be foolish, the larger point is that within 30 days there will be zero Note 7's in the wild that do not have massive user-enabled security holes. The Note 7 is also not going to receive security updates, nor any of the benefits of Nougat's security. Pixel XL wins that one.
    Camera: This one was close, the Note 7 has a great camera and is part of a 4 way tie for second best. But the Pixel XL is the new leader in mobile cameras, for now, so Pixel XL wins that one.

    When only comparing these two devices on the above 9 categories, the Note 7 wins 1 category (display) outright and ties on 1, while the Pixel XL leads all 7 of the other categories, in 3 of which they are the undisputed industry leaders and in 2 of which the Note 7 forfeited.

    This article has basically become redundant as Samsung has decided to stop selling the Galaxy Note 7 entirely, after uncovering a serious battery flaw that was causing some users' handsets to catch fire. If you own a Galaxy Note 7, turn it off, and get it back to Samsung as soon as possible. And if you like reminiscing about what could have been, read on...

    I have received my Google Pixel and it is no Note 7. I miss the curved edges, the S-pen, the sd card, the better signal, etc. While the finger print sensor is far superior to the Note 7 I still want my Note back.
    It's not supposed he anything other than what it is.
