    Just imagine some of the people here with hot dogs in one hand... Note 7's in the other... you've just affectively increased your odds for something to happen. Playing with fire.
    Now that's some funny schtuff, right there.

    At least we all got a free Gear Fit 2 or 256GB MicroSD card to use with our new iPhones.
    No one seriously involved with android would want a iphone......

    Went to return my n7 at atat for a s7 and they told me to take the phone back and use it until next week when they get more stock. Unbelievable advising me to use a faulty phone

    You got people here saying Tim Cook is behind the CPSC getting involved and your quibbling on proof NOW?? lol.

    It came from a decent Android site.. and regardless the idea has merit and good for the people. I hope Samsung reads this and goes for it. Be Brave Samsung!! Be Brave!
    Umm, I've never mentioned Tim Cook at all. There's no proof in that article, it says 'will ' in the title and 'may' in the article. That's click bait.

    Came from an iPhone back to android after a 2 year hiatus. I am kind of on the fence really. I came back because iPhone doesn't provide nearly the productivity I need. On the flip side, the iPhone wasn't as much of a safety concern. Being involved in racing r/c cars with lipo batteries, I've had 6-8 Go off while in the car. I also have been using a lipo sack to charge my note in since i have a few of them. Is the problem only when charging the note tho?

    Yeah, not in the US at all. The just say "well, just return it for a refund and re-buy sometime in the future, thanks!"

    Dead end transaction. I've left, ordered an iPhone 7+ 256. Keeping my Nexus 6P around for fun.

    Relax, I'm hyper aware of iOS' limitations. I own an iPad Pro 12", MacBook, iMac 4k and have a work iPhone. It's all good, really.

    1 in 1800 is not a small percentage for something exploding or catching on fire.

    I don't care anymore. I switched to the S7 edge and it's fine. I'll wait until the next S series to see if they're better next time.

    I have no idea where you are pulling that figure from. Are people trying to divide the number of phones sold by the number of reports of battery failures to come up with some false statistic?

    It was thrown around in an earlier post and that person considered that a reasonably low percentage. I doubt anyone who doesn't work for Samsung knows and they may not fully know either.

    They say will in the title and may in the article without a single ounce of proof.
    Yeah and also say they will be shipping them out with a prepaid return for you to ship the old one back.

    It would be in Samsung's best interest to provide information as to the expected date for the new stock. If they take too long they may lose some customers to the iPhone 7.Secondly along with the $25, Samsung should give all returned customers the supped up Note 7 that was made for china, besides that would speed up the process if the CPSC take too long as that Note 7 is a different model.
    Best Buy was about to announce for some carriers next week, but all on hold until the CPSC goes through their process motions. If they follow their normal process, not sure how this is done quickly.

    Need to audit production plants
    Sub component plants
    ISO Quality procedures
    Test many samples from batches
    Interview staff

    Oh, and schedule dates and travel for that.

    THEN they review the data, debrief auditors and THEN meet with Samsung.

    IF the CPSC applies normal due diligence, this is weeks.

    If there are significant findings and failure of samples of new batches, it would pretty much kill an already maimed Note 7.

    HAs to be someway they streamline this. I wouldn't exactly trust the gubermint being an expert in testing all this stuff anyways. I'm sure Samsung's people are much more experts in this kind of stuff.

    Based on assuming 350 failures of 2,400,000 instead of 35 plus, it would be 1 in 6,893.. Something like that... Too lazy to go to a calculator.

    Samsung needs to invest in more lobbyists. It helps Apple avoid literally billions in taxes. That revenue shortfall of course is absorbed mainly by the middle class. Apple customers should get a rebate from Apple All paying tax payers should really.....

    Where do you come up with a number of 350. If you want to assume failures out of 2,400,000 units sold... Samsung had said the batteries effected accounted for .1% of total units made... 2,400,000... so you're looking at 2,400 explosive devices out there right?

    Well, the Gear Fit 2 will be compatible with the iPhone by the end of the month. Samsung is currently beta-testing an iOS version of the Gear Manager app.

    I hope everybody gets the new one before they start this process or it may be longer.
    You can switch out thru Verizon and when Note7 is back can get it .. better to be safe. I went tonight. Got edge7 and when Note 7 is back will get it. This is great for us as Verizon customers.

    Seems that if Samsung is being forthright (must be with CPSC involved now), and is an anode / cathode breach, it should have already shown symptoms of heat, low battery life or flamed out. If Samsung is not being forthright and there are impurity issues with the battery layers, then an additional mitigation step is to turn off rapid charging to reduce charging stress.

    That said, if impurities are an issue, that should have shown as well. Especially if a launch day purchase.

    BTW, the Jeep fire story seems a tad fishy, but I am inherently skeptical.
