    Hopefully they can narrow it down to batches and don't have to recall them all

    The real dilemma for those of us like me whose return policy expires tomorrow is what to do. If they seriously think they are going to repair rather than replace my phone isd rather have a refund. I don't have a backup and i sure don't want a repair. That's unacceptable. So tomorrow I need to decide. Making things complicated is this is the best phone on the market. Anything else will feel like a downgrade. Anyone else wrestling with this?

    Have you talked to your carrier?

    Right now nothing is pointing to US phones, but if anything is, I'm sure Samsung is communicating with carriers.

    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.

    I got paranoid and thought I'd try charging it using the adapter it came with and a cable I have been using with other phones for a long time and the phone is staying cool
    My phone doesn't get hot when using it either.

    I may get the iPhone 7 plus. We'll see. The note lacks the battery life and performance of the iPhone. It's performance even feels worse than some of last year's Android phones.

    Why did you buy the Note 7 in the first place? Be specific.

    Hopefully they just send a new phone or work with carriers for loaned devices during the repair period.

    If they must recall, they should have a program where you can get a new phone before sending yours in, because way too many people do not have another phone and you can't realistically expect people to not have a phone yet continue to pay their phone bill. Doing it this way would take a while to process, but any other way would be a bit unfair to everyone who just bought this thing 2 weeks ago or less.

    I make sure to use just Samsung approved chargers or charging pads so I am really hoping that those with the issues didn't follow those explicit directions. And yes it would be great to get a new phone and put the old one in the box and head to the post office or UPS

    I do love the phone, but I think it would depend on how the recall is handled. If they are going to give me a refurbished unit or repair my device I may pass and look to the Moto Z when it comes out. If they are giving brand new devices then I would stick with the note I think.

    I hope if there is a recall we get a brand new phone not a repaired one, we didn't ask for a issue even thought these days it seems to happen to just about anything but we paid for a brand new phone in good faith and it would break my heart to have a refurbished no matter how good it might look. I don't want to go back to Apple they are just too plain vanilla after having my Note

    Uh, sealed batteries were a thing before the S6 came about.

    If anything, Samsung is just following everyone else.

    I am glad you enjoy your phone but I personally am not going to keep the phone I have if the manufactures suggest I send it back because it may explode. I see no point in keeping that one if that could happen.

    I love my Note7 too, but if mine is one of those affected, I wouldn't hesitate to change it for a new one.

    I don't take something like a faulty battery lightly. When the battery on my dad's phone bulged, I told him to stop using it immediately.

    I would send it back for a new one but I don't want a refurbished one when we all bought them brand new - I also would like to know if they pull the old battery how will that affect the water resistance numbers

    When it comes to recalls, they probably won't issue refurbs.

    There's Not reason for a big Fuss,.But affects Samsung reputation
    and favored its competitor-Apple: Hope both of them rollBack its
    unwise decision to make phones with un-Removable batteries

    How a user Can replace the Battery in an exploded Phone or due
    to other defects. Goto figure out and stay Tuned @ACentral - Recall details

    Well, the Yonhap article, which is what just about every other news site is referencing about this recall, says Samsung is talking with Verizon. If true, that would sure seem to point to US phones as well.

    It's all speculation now of course, but if everyone is referencing one part of the source article, than it makes sense to look at the rest of that same source article ..
