    This. These "phones" in the pictures are fake.
    Actually it seems like they have been looked at by Samsung.

    Phones in other countries don't look like ours necessarily. Seems in Japan, they are going with zero Samsung branding.

    All pictures I've seen also do not have "SAMSUNG" below the earpiece.
    Another good point. Why are the Samsung logos missing from these blown up phones?

    And seems with the S7, they did just that thing in China, Japan and South Korea.

    "In China, Japan and even South Korea, Samsung will sell its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones without the Samsung logo that appears on the front of the devices in all other markets."

    I would try to stick with the note. But if I don't feel safe with it I would still stick with samsung and go for the pink s7 edge. I still want curved screen. But I don't think that is going to happen. i love my blue note.

    I sold mine on eBay Tuesday, it's in transit to the new owner
    Better hope PayPal does not whack you when it blows up on the new owner.

    I've been charging up my Note 7 overnight since I got it two weeks ago and no explosions. I'm guessing there's only a few faulty phones and the tech websites are blowing this way out of proportion.
    With the cable/wall charger or wireless?

    I ordered Note 7 directly from Samsung website (black AT&T version) about a week ago and it was just delivered to me by FedEx today along with the free Samsung gift (256GB MicroSD card).

    With all this news about the upcoming Note 7 recall, I have not un-boxed my Note 7 and the MicroSD card yet.

    Should I un-box my Note 7 and check it out or just leave it in the box? Would an unopened phone make any difference during recall? As you can imagine, it is very tempting when the box is sitting in front of me.

    (new to the forum by the way so please be gentle)
    I'm always gentle.

    You can open your device and start to enjoy it. If there is a recall, having it in the box will only save you packing it up to send it in. Everybody's will be used.

    Plus, there is a good chance you will not be part of the recall. No sense in wasting time in your return period waiting to see.

    Best phone I've ever had, so I'm in for a new one if recalled. IPhones are nice, and I was a long time user, but I'm very much enjoying my Note 7.

    Totally agree but the timing of this couldn't be worse for them. This wouldn't necessarily deter me but can you imagine how many on-the-fence people would see these headlines and choose the iPhone 7.
    How they handle it will matter. There will likely be a short term loss, but handled properly they have a chance to inspire trust and grow their brand in the long run. I like to buy from companies that are transparent, and treat customers well. It is easy when everything is going well, tough situations reveal character.

    Seems like the issue was caused by a couple of people using the micro USB to USB Type C converter cord to charge their phone. It may just be a issue in the South Korean market. But I'm waiting from a official statement from Samsung first to confirm this.

    How they handle it, if a problem exists, will determine everything.

    From what we know right now, the only common factor is cheap charging equipment being used.

    Possibly. I would think Samsung would recommend people not use the converter that came with the phone. That would suck but I could live with it. I would probably buy a couple USB type C chargers to keep handy then.

    Might consider the Moto Z Force.
    I had that for a few days and loved it. I returned it for the Note 7 because I realized I used multiwindow more than I thought along with the pen. Solid phone though!

    Well thats disappointing The note 7 seems like a great phone but I'm seeing a lot of controversy with its scratch resistance and now exploding batteries and stuff (although I heard it doesn't affect US variant). I don't have the note 7 but I really want it even after all the stuff I hear. I'm quite dedicated :P

    That's what I'm thinking too. Why would anyone use a cheap $3 charger on a phone that cost at least $850 is beyond me.

    just read an article on "mac rumors" stating that an unknown official is saying they will be requesting everyone to return their phones....not sure how true that is tho.
    Mac Rumors. Nuff said.

    I'd stick with my note 7 if they are sending me back my original phone or a new one. I wouldn't take a refurbished one. I'd just cancel and go back to my note five if they sent me a refurbished one.

    No.. They are still linking the original article that says nothing about a worldwide recall or any recall yet.

    Samsung hasn't made a statement yet.
