    Until Samsung Canada announces the recall I will be expecting a full refund if they cannot exchange for a brand new one.

    Not a fan of getting my phone serviced, it's the reason why I sold my S7 edge. There was a dead pixel and even though the display was replaced I couldn't live with it. I always tell the buyer everything.

    I have to problems going back OnePlus 3.

    That's tantamount to saying a papercut is the same thing as getting hacked to death with a machete.
    yes, i can see where one MIGHT feel that way. BUT, i still stand by my statement. I warn all my phones in advance, "one scratch and its off you go to torment someone ELSE with your flawed self"

    After all, life's too short for me to spend my life turning my phone towards every possible angle in order to try and convince myself, "ya can't see the scratch"...lol

    This incident doesn't make sealed batteries a liability. Even if it was removable, it the battery is defective it would still be an issue.
    With a couple of batteries and a separate charger any heat produced from charging is disapated.

    Why is it so hard for people to understand there are a good number of us that aren't having any of the problems that others are having? This isn't my first Samsung, but this has been the best. If it isn't for you, I'm sorry, you should return it and get something that will make you happy. It's pretty simple.
    the vast majority of the people, greater than 90% are not having the issue. i will be keeping the note 7, i will let them fix it if it is needed, but i'm keeping it.

    The discussion is about swappable batteries not water resistance.
    If sealed batteries are a liability for cellphones should Samsung move toward swappable batteries? Users could have 100% mobile availability with swappable batteries and use a LifeProof case for water proof requirements.
    Water resistance is achievable with a removable battery. Galaxy S5 for example.

    As far as the OP question. Yes, it would be easier to handle this issue if the battery were swappable and they should go in that direction. Good design is achievable with removable batteries and there is no real negative to it other than the fact customers will have less of a need to upgrade and that's only a negative for the seller.

    If it's "2" defective phones, a worldwide recall wouldn't be on the cards, now would it?

    To the naysayers, it might be your unit next that catches fire or explodes. You just don't know.

    I think it is 6 total phones.

    Thing is if you bought one of these and had any plans of using the stylus, what else is there? There's a world difference between this phone and the LG stylo....

    First it was 2, now 6. No doubt this number will increase. 6 phones that catch fire is actually a high number as it clearly shows it is not an isolated event and is a problem with the phone inherently.

    Actually no. First it was one, then a second and reports of like six are in.

    Right now the only common factor is cheap, badly made, charging equipment.

    If that is the case, that isn't Samsung.

    And maybe they'll quietly take care of the glass issue... All of a sudden phones are able to not crack when dropped with a case or tap against a desk taking it out of ones pocket. Then I will be buying one of those v2.0 phones ASAP.

    But they give you adapters so that you can use practically any old cable you have lying around without any warning. Or do they (I don' have a manual).

    I don't know about USBC ports but I wonder why the port doesnt have some chip to regulate power and terminate when exceeds an amount of power or rate of power?

    Your phone works fine until it doesn't.

    I haven't heard anything definitive about a recall outside of South Korea, but if they recall it, take advantage and get it exchanged.

    They give you adapters, they say with all their phones to use Samsung chargers only.

    I'm not here. My phone doesn't heat up hardly at all even when charging with fast wall charging. Only time it did was installing updates it got a bit warm. My s7 seemed to heat up a bit more.

    It is looking like these few units that imploded they were using cheap chargers along with the converter possibly. In the past various Iphone models also had a few similar cases and the issue wasn't blown up.

    Yeah I'm not worried about the actual phone exploding. I'm worried about a recall and having to send it back for some reason or risk losing warranty.

    If this happens I'm not going to be happy at all.

    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.
    A lot of people do it, I've seen several on our forums post they are buying cheap chargers for the Note 7.

    People can buy inexpensive without buying cheaply made.
    Boggles my mind. I use this cable along with the sammy OEM brick. Phone warms a bit but not out of the ordinary.

    However I must say that I use the samsung fast wireless charger at work. It takes longer to charge and the phone gets a bit warmer.

    I'm thinking they will tell people to stop using converters then and only Samsung or brand name cables. Regarding using cheap cables, USBC is fairly new still and I wouldn't trust the technology with cheap cables yet.

    This Note 7 is the coolest running phone I've ever had. It seldom ever heats up. Cooler running than my S7.

    Agreed, there is something odd about this.

    Besides, what guarantees the phones will still be safe after being recalled?

    Yea. If it's because of the Iphone 7 coming out and trying to hope to hurt Note 7 sales, I hope karma comes back to bite apple!

    Count me in as not paranoid about the exploding phone I am more paranoid that the chances of the weak phone glass spontaneously cracking at its curve is more likely to happen within the first year of ownership than the chances of explosion. Really.

    But even a small percentage if true the whole thing needs to be looked at. Anyone can be that one in a million. I had a one in a million moment, or felt like it, before nearly burned my house down.

    Unrelated story to my moment... I see my daughter... these kids live with the power strip on their bed with the macbook, ipad, iphone all plugged and running and resting on their beds and you can feel the heat because like the laptop has cut air flow laying on mattress and they leave the house left running all day like that! Ugh! All I need is a one lame machine to overheat on the mattress while away

    I'm gonna step away and have a talk with my daughter again.
