    It will tell you where and when your phone was made.

    Right now we have to wait for the Samsung statement, which supposedly could come as early as this weekend or first of next week.

    Everything being reported is conjecture at this point.
    Thanks...Mine is showing Korea and made on 8/3/2016.

    The only issues I've had have been moderate lag.

    In the US, that isn't feasible. The closest walk in center to me was 2 hours away. They closed. Now the closest one to me is 700 miles.
    Depends on where you are. Closest one to me is 5 miles or so... But sure there aren't many so many people are out of luck

    My note 7 just exploded. I know this because something bounched out the bottom when I picked the phone up off the charger. It looks like a small missle. So they put small missles into the phone. No wonder they are blowing up. The color even matches the device. Very clever samsung.

    In all seriousness what were they thinking by supplying us with short baby cables? If I didn't have wireless chargers I'd have no choice but to use an alternative cable. Maybe this was all part of their plan. To force us into using alternative cables and then blame us for their fault.

    I'm not one for conspiracy theories but this must be solved. The only way we can solve this is to break into area 51. And if your still reading this then you must be as bored as I was when I wrote it.

    The topic is about sealed batteries being a liability, presumably the reason the OP brought it up is due to the latest reports.
    However, yes, the OP could have been speaking in general terms.
    He also mentioned to use a removable battery and waterproof case...

    Would hope they would swap faulty units for new given the cost of these high end devices. I can see scratched glass and scuffed bezels after a battery swap being the next problem for Samsung!

    Not much we can do right now but wait.

    I wouldn't charge overnight or charge unsupervised, might want to turn off fast charging as that normally heats the battery some and be sure an use Samsung charging.

    Might all be unnecessary, but won't hurt anything. Samsung should make a statement soon.

    Is everyone charging wireless or with the cable and wall plug?
    I'm using the samsung wall charger with a "benson approved" i-orange 6ft cable. I hope I don't burst into flames.

    Ugh it will be super annoying if we end up with refurbished phones at the end of this when I could walk into a store tomorrow and return them, then re-order in a week for brand new phones.

    Of course, nothing will be announced in time :-/

    Same here. I would think if the recall is just for units in Korea and certain countries which is the hunch I have then they likely will just swap the units out for new ones. I really don't see Samsung swapping out every single unit for ever single Note 7 owned. That would take big $$$ which would be a mega $ blow to the company and would take months to do to produce enough replacement models.

    I still think this is an isolated incident though. If it's a samsung charger issue then I could seem them sending us new chargers, but a recall for every single model I don't think will happen unless there is no other choice. I would think these 400,000 units will be the first to be recalled and if issues persist in other units then recall them.

    If all the note 7s are recalled and give the option of getting a new unit or a refund, will you choose to get a new unit or use the refund and get a Iphone 7Plus later this month?

    For me I would probably take a replacement unit. I'm so used to Android and love the Spen and Iphone doesn't offer a Note like phone.

    I'm not sure about LGV20 because of their quality issues as well with their phones. Even Apple has issues too they try to always hide under the rug.

    If they offer replacement Notes I would take it.

    A recall would not change the fact that this is the best phone available.
    What if you have to send in your phone and then send you back a refurbished unit. Then it would be the best phone that-maybe-fell-in-someones-toilet.

    If the battery is fault, users that have used the device already would know. They would have insanely poor battery life, hot running devices, and or it went boom.
    That not true. A defective item doesn't have to show its defects early. It could take a little while especially depending on the chargers and adapters people are using.

    The other thing to consider is the impact this might have on future resale value. For many this is probably not a big deal, but for people like me who go through 3 or 4 phones per year, resale is a really big deal.
    Great point. This why I'm doing the upgrade every year stuff with my carrier. Just give them the device back and get something else. Or I'll pay to upgrade sooner if necessary.

    I am up in the air. I would want a new one but may be a little weary .. And with the V20 coming out I would possibly try that? We will see.

    Just have comfort in knowing that with all the worldwide attention Samsung is getting (Even CBS News!) over the Note 7 prone to exploding, that once resolved, every part of that phone will be scrutinized and manufacturing and QC will be watched so closely, the phone will be solid as a tank or their rep is ruined with any more issues. I mean the phone hasn't been out a full two weeks has it??

    I will be watching for the Note 7v2.0 and reconsider getting one.

    Oh I know, it sucks for you. Maybe this can even help the S7 Active issue move along though..

    True.. But, Samsung is looking into this unlike Apple acting like Touch Disease doesn't exist and it is rampant.
    If they like the iPhone 7 more than the GN7 and bought the GN7 anyways...I'm sorry, but they shouldn't be in the GN7 market in the first place.

    I'm not really sure what that has to do with the subject we were discussing.

    Many people aren't exclusively iPhone or Samsung.

    Yeah they only have 3 listed on their site now. They don't have Dallas/Ft Worth listed though and that is their main walk in.
