    True geeks, no. I'm an electronics geek/nerd and I sat quietly by knowing that all would be well and the recall would go as it should. It's lack of valid information (read internet media hype) that makes people freak out.Very glad that Sammy did their homework before the CPSC got involved.

    It sucks for everyone involved. Financially, it's a disaster and I feel very bad for Samsung, the carriers, those that actually got injured or had damage from the phone, and us. Misery flows downhill.
    It was not a financial disaster, don't feel bad for a huge insanely big conglomerate, they got plenty cash !!!!!

    I strongly disagree. It's survivable, yes. Funny. If I lost billions, even if I had billions more, which they may, but the rest of us do not, it would still qualify. I bet they get a great tax break from the losses on this phone.

    IMO you are way overestimating the average individual's attention span (shorter than a goldfish according to new studies). It will be on to the next "issue" as deemed by the mass media by next week.
    Sorry, what was that? Attention span? About what? LOL!

    I hear you, but meh... if any iPhone sheep cracks an explosion joke I'll just say "na, took just a couple of weeks to get a replacement. Meanwhile the iPhone is still 4 years behind."

    It sucks that this phone is officially labeled now. Its such an amazing device. I've never enjoyed a new phone more than the time I have spent with the Note 7. I haven't had any problems and mine never even gets warm while charging. It sucks for Samsung that this whole thing went down the way it did.
    Given that I am already considered "detestable", the stigma is no big deal. ;-)

    Eh... Bendgate, Antennagate, Explodegate... there were so many more. They find the problem, fix the problem, then that's all that matters.

    THAT phone will have that stigma stuck to them. But by next gen or two no one will care.

    They said about 100 cases with some involving loss of property and injury... lucky none mentioning life taken... that would hit any company hard.

    Stigma? I'm not worried. I'm on the annual upgrade. If the value drops below 50% then I'll turn it in for a note 8 next year.

    When the dust settles, the fiscal Vs staff correction and reckoning will be mass level brutal. There will be groups held accountable and also collateral damage with people that had nothing to do with it. Corporate GNA looks a lot fatter when you lose two billion or more. If you factor in the expected growth trend now impacted- double that at least from an absolute change (not the net change).

    Where were the self righteous (Gizmodo, etc) for those events? If anything, they seemed to give Apple the benefit of the doubt. Not recalling any calls to the CPSC or FAA then. Apparent bias and sensationalism at its ripest.

    They just need a "killer ad compaign" to reintroduce it... Some of their past commercials have been REALLY good....Personally, my all time fav:




    Just get Taylor Swift or someone to make it cool to carry a phone that could have exploded but has been "fixed" and everyone will want one..lol : )

    Personally, I never worry about stigma. I buy a product based on providing features I desire - not to impress anyone. If I'm satisfied with it, what difference does public perception make?

    Yeah. Now people will think all Samsung phones blow up

    Even still though, I doubt this will hurt Samsung as a brand in the long-term.
    I don't think this will happen. I know own Samsung will bounce back. APPLE has gone thru recalls. It can happen. Car mfg. Everyone bounces back. I can't wait to have it back.

    Did you read the replies? No one thought it was funny, so I doubt we'll be hearing many of those anymore.

    I don't know if anyone mentioned it, but I think the worst part about this stigma comes from people who aren't educated on the topic and don't realize it is ONE line of phones that are having g this issue. It's not ALL Samsung phones. I say "I have a 7Edge" and the response is "isn't that the one that's blowing up?"

    I doubt it will be an issue. The general public don't pay much attention to this stuff. I've had to explain the recall to everyone, they didn't even know about it. This is a big deal to people like us on the forums, in fact we are making it worse on the forums by talking about it all the time.
    I don't share that opinion. With the topic being in the news literally every day, people are very much aware of it. What's worse: people now seem to associate the fires and explosions with all Samsung phones, not just the Note7. I've heard my students joke about that on more than one occasion. It'll remain a pain to use Note 7's on airplanes for months to come as well as there no visual difference between the dangerous models and the fixed ones. While this probably won't affect long-term sales for Samsung, this year is pretty much over for them and next year probably as well.
