    Well anyone with any sense would. I just can't imagine Samsung HAD to do that in order to fix the phone. I never heard reports that the normal looking icon was what was causing the explosions.
    There has to be a way for people to distinguish a good Note 7 from a bad one. Unless there's another way to easily distinguish it, green battery icon probably is the easiest and quickest method to differentiate the two.

    Is this something Samsung can remedy with a software update to the replacement Notes with the white battery icons?
    What would keep the bad battery Notes from getting this update also?

    Latest and the greatest it may be, but I'm not accepting one with a green battery. I'd have to root it to get rid of that and I wasn't going to root this one. Big no for me, here. I'm letting it go if it shows up with that.
    Ugh. That green battery icon looks freaking stupid. Especially on the AOD.

    All someone has to do is root and change the battery icon color.

    This is what reporting the news should be. No hysteria and speculation. This is the the problem, how Samsung is rectifying, where you can find a a replacement, what new phone will look like... All great information that probably would have made the recall in the US go more smoothly. Good reporting doesn't bring good ratings though.

    Report: China also affected by exploding Galaxy Note 7s

    This better not cause delays for usa in any way.. I smell foul play and people getting on the bandwagon on these cases.. I could be wrong but now it seems everyone wants to cash in on the fiasco.

    Icon color does not matter but getting a replacement with the latest improvements does.

    If this is even a legitimate story in China, the big question is confirming if these are the original r3called notes or the supposedly redone ones

    Only people who appreciate detail. You know, like everyone who freaks out on Samsung every single year because Touchwiz icons aren't the right colors

    Those N7s were test phones.. About 1,800 or people received them to test before the China launch ... They are not the phones that were later released in China..

    I'd rather have a blue battery icon but at this point, I have no battery icon at all.... Wish I had a green battery icon to complain about

    Just walked into a Sprint store in midtown, Manhattan. Was able to get a new Note 7, Blue Coral. The box however, did not have an S stamped on it as previously reported. But I did plug in the IMED while I was in the store on the Samsung site and indeed confirmed it is a safe Note 7. Going to power it on now and activate it and all should be good.

    So..... Phone catching on fire isn't a deal breaker. Battery icon being green is a deal breaker though...

    Have you read the updated version? Looks like it was put on an external heat source. Aka oven or heat lamp lol. Too funny there. Trying to jump on the bandwagon and failed.

    No.. Just a black square and a 2 tacked onto the end of the serial number listed on the box. No S sticker, no green battery icon.

    Well, considering it is the home market and a significant amount of the South Korean economy, I would expect more rational reporting there than here, where Apple dominated the tech journalist world...
