    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.

    If people use common sense and don't let media decide for them there will be no stigma. The fact that this is a great device hasn't changed and my opinion is the same as the first day I got it. I will exchange when new phones are available and be on my merry way. It's sad that the media nowadays just beats news to death and spreads any story without verification. Fyi, no 6 year old was burned by a Note 7.

    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.

    Yup big stigma and it will affect s/h values. There are likely a lot of folks out there that haven't changed their notes.

    Why are you so worried, in a month it's all old news, and some thing else will be in the headlines.

    Most probably. Samsung will lose money big time on the Note 7 however. They will not be able to recover the billion dollars plus of the recall. It will be interesting to see if there is any effect on the Galaxy S8.

    I still think that preorders of the S8 will at least be effected. A lot of people will hold off and not preorder and wait a while to see if there are any inherent issues, like the Note 7. If I was buying the S8, I know I would.

    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 saw people out yesterday using their S7 phones like nothing ever happened. People who actually own Samsung devices are smart enough to know that only one model was affected.

    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.

    Well, all it takes is one Barney Fife at airport screening to go all authoritaaay. One bullet in Barney's pocket can be dangerous.

    Most did not based on data traffic usage that monitors actual device models (aggregate view of course). Note 7 data traffic barely changed pre to post ban and recall. Most kept them, as local Verizon and BB stores have also concurred.

    This is the biggest issue on a phone ever, somemore on one of the highest profile phone. It will be in people's mind for quite a while.

    There's a stigma? Idk... I have been out and about in public using my n7, and only a few people have asked me "hey, is that the exploding phone?" Then we would joke around about it for a few min, I'd show them all the neat stuff it does, and we part our ways.

    Seems the majority of people realize that the media has blown this way outta proportion, and just think it's funny. Not 1 person has said "you should really turn that off, and get a new phone"...

    Then again... maybe that just cuz I surround myself with smart people

    Samsung will not go out of business, in fact they will thrive because they learned a lesson, heads will roll not for the money lost, but because it tarnished the brand. The Note7 still above head and shoulders over anything Apple released this year.

    I think with the S7 (and other items the sell), they made enough to be OK with the Note 7 mistake.
    "
    first quarter of 2016, and they're slightly better than predicted; the company made 6.68 trillion won ($5.58 billion) off 49.78 trillion won ($43.8 billion) in revenue, "

    We'll see if there is any "stigma." Personally, I couldn't care less. I just can't wait to get a Note 7 back. I have always enjoyed the Note series and the Note 7 was a great device, in my opinion.

    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.
