    The recall has put a stink on the Note 7. I bet Samsung is working hard on the Note 8 and will introduce it and the S8 at MWC 2017.

    Rubbish, I have not seen believable evidence that supports some mass exodus from the N7. Anyone who has one now will either get it replaced with a revised/safe N7 or they will choose something else (Some will have opted for another device simply because they needed a device and replacements were not immediately available or because the replacement process was rather messy).
    Just my humble opinion.

    Cheers,
    BR

    Sure it does. It's just not a practical design unless you throw a case on it and then...what's the point of that non "I'll never feel it" premium material?

    Take that poll with a grain of salt. I would take it with a case of Morton's Salt to be honest.

    The media have had their jollies posting false articles of kids getting blown up by this device. The media have long given up any semblance of journalism, fear, death & destruction is their game.

    The carriers know the numbers. Samsung will know the numbers. If one of the carriers or Samsung release info on how many have walked away from the Note 7 instead of doing the replacement, then we will have hard data.

    And if the number of 18% is even close to real. Then,,,,,,,,

    We few, we happy few, we Band of Brothers, for he today that holds the Note 7 up, shall be my brother.

    I'm sticking with the Note 7, what others decide to do.....so be it.
    Well said just picked up my new replacement today from att

    I think what alot of people are missing is, those who left didnt necessarily do so because of the Note 7 or the battery. They left because of Samsung as a company. They made a mess of a mess by handling this the way they did. I loved the note 7. Its the first phone I ever felt was perfect in every way but Samsungs customer service and how impossible they are to deal with pushed me away from them. I went back to Apple for the convenience factor. I know I can walk into my local Apple store and have any problem what so ever fixed for $99 with Applecare or $349 without it. I dealt with Samsung countless times with my S7 active and got pushed to my carrier every time. Then they did the same passing of the buck with the recall. Im hoping the Note 8 is flawless because I really want a Note but if there is a chance Ill have to deal with Samsung I will never give any of there phones another chance. I will wait at least 2 months for the Note 8 to be out and if theres no issues Ill buy one but if theres a single common flaw then forget it.

    Am I happy with ios? Not really but I go back to them because the customer service, while not perfect, far exceeds Samsungs or any other phone company I know. Prime example, my kids 6 plus started acting up so we took it to the Apple store and in 9 minutes exactly we walked out with a new phone. The night before however they took 2 1/2 hours to correct her insurance being put on a random phone. In the end though I got answers and a fix in under 3 hours. Samsung took weeks to even give an explanation on what was going to happen.

    That's what I did. Moved on to iPhone, I just hang around here to keep up with whats going on.
    SS should just kill the N7 or I guess at this point they've already lost a ton of money so they might as well get what they can out of it.

    One thing is for sure the next note should be rock solid although scaled back spec wise. I do hope they go with a non glass back.
    And to all you reviewers out there...stop with the premium feel garbage, please and thank you. Plastic and metal are wonderful materials to use for phones. They can still do curved front glass using plas...I'm sorry polycarbonate.
    If you have kept up with the Iphone 8 rumors, they *may* go back to the Glass back like the Iphone 4, soo if you don't like the glass back of the Note 7, you aren't going to like the new Iphone lol.

    What...I just got a Ip7+ why do I need to buy a new iP8+ next year?
    That being said you are 100% right that I wont like it if they have a glass back. I didn't like the S7E or N7 with the glass backs either, but I owned both. :P

    That's what I fancy about owning an Apple product.

    The generally quick and painless customer support.

    Of course, I had a few fuzzy moments with them, but generally, I find them to be pretty good, especially that one time where they helped resolve an issue with my iPad Pro and Apple ID.

    While the statistics of this study may be flawed, there is little doubt that many N7 owners are not returning theirs for a replacement N7.

    Based on studies like this along with refunds given already and other phones bought instead, it appears Samsung perhaps feels 500,000 N7s are enough for the exchange. At least, it looks that way to me. Otherwise with so few replacements, how could Samsung expect to quickly get all the bad N7's out of circulation and avoid more damage reports?

    And let's not forget about the idiots who will just not bother to do a return, because "mine works fine".

    Because sometimes all you want is a good solid phone with a company that provides great customer service and you're not into launchers, rooting, or icon changes. And you're not a Android or IPhone Fanboy, so all of this who is better than who crap means squat to you.

    Uh.. this is a USA today survey monkey poll...no way to validate of the shipping 507 users that took it (which by the way...is a sample so tiny NO one would claim and kind of statistical viability), were even Note 7 owners....
    OMG how dare you not respect poll statistics! Without them we would all not know what people want me to think.

    And I did my own poll in which it is a 200% return rate... FYI... Survey covered 2 people, myself, who has gotten the new one, and my father who is going to buy it as soon as it comes back available for purchase.

    Take that stats! You pseudo math.

    Holy get over yourself batman! There is a serious and very easy reason you get your "better" care from Apple. Famous reason. Samsung does not write the software for your phone. Your carrier does. If there is a hardware flaw then it is up to the carrier and Samsung to fix it, not you and Samsung. Apple makes one damned thing. Just one! If there is a software flaw, they provided it and can change it on the spot. If there is a hardware flaw, the same thing! That's the beauty of an apple device. There is not many of them so supporting them is much easier. However the beauty of a Samsung device is you are able to go after the very high end, a middle of the road, and a low end device all from the same maker. Yes, android updates lag comparatively, but for good dang reason!

    This apple knows how to do it better is just garbage. When you make one product all year it just is much easier.

    I sense some anger there buddy. Relax, take a breathe and have a drink or 6. I havent had any software issues from Apple or Samsung, just hardware. And if a company cant properly support a flawed device because they make too many, well then that again is on them and maybe they should only make what they can handle. So Im not sure what you want me to get over about myself unless you dont want me to fault a company from not being able to support their product line. If you accept mediocrity out of $700 and up products then good deal, I choose to expect quality no matter whos name is on it.

    I had no idea that the carrier's wrote the software either. Wow, I always thought Samsung created TouchWiz. So much useful info above!!

    I think the fact that so many people are still holding on to their "bad" devices makes this poll just a little suspect. There were people in line, who never had the Note 7, to buy one at Verizon yesterday. And, BTW, they were selling them to them.
