    Finally FINALLY GREAT news for all of us die hard 7ers...
    & (please don't tell me I'm reading this wrong due to sleep deprivation).

    New, safe Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units will feature green battery indicators
    I've seen that Monday, September 19 date in a few other articles and it was listed for other countries, not the U.S.. We can hope but I'd be a little surprised if it does happen that soon.

    I disagree. Couldn't care less what color the tiny icon is. I'll change my wallpaper. If it came in green to begin with u wouldn't have bought it?? Really?

    Just counted 10 widgets and apps that are on my home screens right now. One being android central, of course. And if u really wanted to u can change your folder colors to green as well. Assuming you use folders. I do. It works for me! Wouldn't care what they did with the icon. If they needed to do it, I think it's a great choice of color. But honestly, I couldn't care less...

    Actually all it says is "carriers and retailers" and doesn't mention any countries by names. In other articles like the one from the Wall Street Journal it specifically mentions countries and the starting date was 9-15 but Canada and the U.S. were not listed in the group. This article was just posted, looks like there will be a formal announcement in about 30 minutes or so. http://www.cnbc.com/2016/09/15/consu...-official.html

    Crossing fingers the replacements will be available sometime between tomorrow and next Friday as rumored. Holding on mine til then. It'll be nice for all of us (and Samsung) to put this fire crap behind us so all the reviewers, press, etc can just concentrate/report on the great phone it is!

    Well, now that we're getting replacements, I'm on the phone with Sprint putting feet to fire over my discounts that got messed up. I may give this guy up and buy again with price drops. Trying to let them keep my business, but if I don't see the discounts I signed on for happening or some viable compromise then I'll give it back very sadly and go back to my N4.

    With this news I have a few days to decide to go back to the Note 7 or stick with the s7 edge. Finally in a good place.

    SO glad I stuck it out. I got a bit nervous, but I knew there was no other phone I was willing to use in the interim.

    Bye all. Out of the club for the time being. I will buy later at a reduced rate, or not at all. Take care!

    Ha, I did order the S7 Edge on Tuesday didn't want to be without a phone if things got worse, but it never shipped. Hopefully they won't ship it...So I will be waiting to exchange my Note 7, never been happier.....

    FWIW, I miss my N7 already. Contacting Sprint again tomorrow with proof of promised pricing and crossing my fingers. Such a great device!

    Bad news! I don't want to see a stupid green icon sitting with the remainder of the white icons. I really hope this is wrong. If they do that I might actually wait for the N8. It's bad enough that they always ship white everything with black Notes. This is bogus.
    I swear I have seen a Theme/App where the battery indicator was GREEN. It may had been NOVA PRIME or an app called Battery Saver. (Yeah, I think this was it...still either app or theme ). So, just imagine it being another theme or another stock app.

    Nice idea, but I'm one of those that a green icon in the midst of all the other white icons will make me crazy. That said, if Sprint will give me the pricing that I was supposed to get (with proof), I may be back. Such a great phone. If things hadn't gone wrong with the battery, it would have killed the iPhone.
