    So, another Note7 has meet a fiery demise full of lithium and chemicals.

    This particular case happened in Australia, the first case in the country.

    Another Note7 has blown-up in Australia - Please stop using your phone ATM-image.jpg

    To quote the user, named "Crushader",

    "My brand new Note 7 exploded this morning while I was still asleep, it was plugged in and charging.Phone completely fried, I can't eject the sim tray to retreive my sim or the SD card. I was using original charger and cable if you are wondering. Charred the hotel room bed sheet and the carpet when I whacked it down to the floor, burnt one of my finger while doing that too.
    This is unfortunate as I am on a business trip in Perth and Brisbane (I'm from Melb), have managed to contact Samsung and they have opened a case for me and will get me a loan device here at one of their Samsung store in Perth.
    From what I understand, this is the first case in Australia.
    Please do not use the phone anymore, it is dangerous and not worth the risk. I knew of the recall and lodged my application with Samsung as soon as they announced officially on Friday, and now 3 days later it has happened to me."

    At this point, I would recommend that folks stop using their Note7 ASAP and either grab a backup phone or contact their carrier for a loaner.

    I have made the mistake of keeping my Note5 next to me in bed at night instead of on the night stand. I have rolled over it a few times and woken up with a very hot phone underneath me. I won't be making that mistake again.

    Yeah that is scary. My phone would have gone back day one. My friend took his back to Verizon, refused to leave the store with it and spoke directly to a manager.

    He's using an S7 for the time being.

    I think there will be more than we hear about.

    Before the recall happened, we knew about four or five exploded phones. We found out that 35 had exploded in total when they announced the recall. So for every one we heard about, five more happened we didn't hear about.

    At this point, I think it's fair to say that potential Note7 buyers would be best to wait it out for a bit longer after the replacements come so that users can give their feedback.

    It's a very expensive device, so I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a phone that doesn't give a user major issues.

    At this stage do you think its better for me to go return this now and wait for the new Note or another phone later on rather than swaping it out?

    As I said in the thread tilted "What Samsung should do to regain.."
    What most factories do with the output of Faulty products, whether
    is an Electronic gadget-Clothing-Food,.etc. Is Stop assembling
    and discard the product totally to avoid spread the infection

    Samsung should limit its models to SGs7:Gs7Edge & apply all its
    Technology on them. Why Apple is successful they dealing just
    with one-Model..Samsung eliminate totally Note7-From the
    menu or face the consequences. Do am I right-Androids

    I will follow Samsung's recommendation. At this time Samsung has not issued a recommendation to stop using the phone, only to exchange it, so I will exchange it as soon as there is a replacement.

    If Samsung steps up and says stop using the device, then I will. Otherwise I will keep my current charging practices which are no fast charging, no charging while I sleep, only charge on non flammable surface and only charge if I'm in the room.

    I disagree. I like the Note features the S7 Edge doesn't have.

    That's not a good idea.

    The Note has its own dedicated fanbase for a reason. Killing it off wouldn't be a smart move.

    Exactly. I was a Motorola chick for a long time and the note 3 is what got me to switch to samsung and I've been with them every since. I tried s6 edge + I ended up giving it to my fiance. The note is what get my attention lol. I've had note 3, 5 and now 7.

    No they don't just stop making it.

    The phone being a Note has zero to do with this. It could have easily been another phone.

    The Note is much better selling that the 's line of phones.

    Your statement sounds reasonable, but they'll assessed the Pros & Cons with
    its Marketing-Advisors and take in account the Economy cost..I could be
    wrong as Always "Sam-Gs7" But that remain to be seen: stay Tuned!

    I'm still fast charging... my batt hasn't got above 37.2°c while charging and me using it same time... that's not bad...


    I don't leave it plugged in when I'm not aware and close by, but ima use it the way it was intended to...

    Samsung has not issued any statement sayi.g NOT to fast charge, or anything else, other than it's been recalled...

    So ima use it the way I was supposed to till it either goes down in the blaze of glory, or I get a new one....

    I didn't spend what I did to babysit...
