    And last year we had the Spen issue too being inserted in backwards and Samsung fixed it in later models of the Note 5. Then the S5 I remember had water resistant issues. It seems a lot of phones the early production runs have some bugs in them.

    It sucks for the 1 or 2 folks that had this issue, but I would say this. If the culprit is a bad charger or bad cable - not OEM - then this guy could have plugged anything into the other end of it and had the same result, not only a Note 7.

    Obviously, we don't know what happened yet. But I would bet it is just that, sub-standard charger or cable. Good on Samsung for checking on this, even if it is just out an an abundance of caution.

    That said, we really don't have much info on cause at all, so it seems silly to talk about "production issues" or "quality control" at this point. With (assuming) millions of devices sold already, if it were really a widespread issue using OEM charging equipment, there would be many many more reports of this.

    TL;DR : It's probably best if we just wait until we know more before assuming anything. It's possible that the halt is actually due to this instead...

    Scary **** honestly. I'm using the ATT version and my phone gets pretty warm when charging. I'm obviously using the standard cables. Should I be able to return it no questions asked if this issue is still a question mark to samsung?

    Unless they release a formal statement, I wouldn't worry. And warming up while charging is pretty normal, especially if you're doing fast charging. Like the reports say, most likely the affected units were using a 3rd party USB-C cable/adapter, and as we've seen with our own AC Bloggers, that can lead to pretty nasty results.

    Fast charging heats up the phone more then normal, even says so in the settings... You can turn fast charge off if your worried about the Temp...

    Is there that much of a variance in USB that their is no one standard for cables and power bricks? Seems to me manufacturers should have held off if there were going to be this many potential issues.

    The issue is third party cables and chargers... The ones following spec are ok

    I turn fast charge off. Non replaceable battery, so minimizing the risk of impacting battery capacitance over time. Heat does not do a battery good. During use or charge. I use my experience working at Exide Battery in quality and production as reference for this decision.

    I just use the brick and cable, or adapter that came with the phone... if it blows up, so be it... it's under warranty for these things. If it burns down my house, well, Samsung will have to pony up

    This isn't the first glass back. It's not even the only one this year.
    Doesn't mean it's going to fly with consumers or lawyers with all the breakage. something that gets such heavy use should never have a glass back. This is one situation in which I applaud the iPhone. Samsung will get extra insurance business along with Sprint and SquareTrade (I'm sure there's more). This is a flat-out win-win money situation for all involved except the consumers.

    What do you mean it won't fly with lawyers? Seems to be flying with consumers, right off the shelf.. Has been for a couple of years. I was fine without all the glass, but glass is what people want.

    No one is forcing anyone to use Samsung phones. If they don't like the glass back, don't buy it.

    It takes a lot to get me concerned about these "issues" that one sees pop up after a new phone is released but I will add a little anecdotal data to the mix. The other night I grabbed my Note4 (original) cable and the Samsung usb-c adapter that was included with my Note7 as I was heading out for a last minute overnight away. Later that night I plugged it in and after about 15 minutes the adapter was so hot I couldn't touch it for longer than a few seconds without feeling it was going to burn me. Immediately unplugged it. It was WAY too hot. I won't be using that adapter ever again.
    honestally I might report that so they know if they don't already. Just so they can do further testing. Better safe than sorry.

    Apparently the areas being reviewed are the charging power functions and USB-C, but only the 8890 version. If Samsung had safety concerns for the 820 version, they would have stop alerts / recalls sent to retail. Not showing due diligence in these matters is pure lawsuit bait.
    Not true. I just read some articles that it would be all models as it would be a battery issue and both models use the same battery.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...ry-explosions/

    Well that is what I got from it. Other articles say the halt was only in south korea. I don't know. Will obviously be watching this though.

    Current sales is likely one of the lesser concerns Samsung has right now.

    Safety along with their reputation seems to be what they're concerned with now.

    There have been several, including one that burst into flames mid-flight.

    Agreed. I smell a class action suit over the glass issues. REALLY poor design idea to have a glass back. Might be "pretty", but that won't last long unless you have a serious case. I'm so on the fence about keeping or returning and only because of the glass back.
    Yea. I would have prefer an aluminum back with a matte surface for better grip
