    Do you trust that they're safe? I find myself not even trusting the CPSC. Considering alternatives, as much as it pains me.

    Because I love this phone so much and really enjoyed the earlier Notes and other Samsung devices I'm willing to take a chance.

    I do. That's supposed to be their job. I don't think they would be quick to approve these if they weren't sure Samsung discovered and corrected the issue. I'm sure there are some people out there that won't even consider the Note7 anymore and even some misinformed that won't even trust a Samsung phone in general anymore, even when there's been reports of iPhone's catching fire over the years.

    At this point, people with replacement note 7s most likely have the safest phone in the industry now....so i feel even safer

    There is virtually no chance they would send these out without making sure they are ok, it would be beyond repair for the Samsung brand if they released these with issues.

    I feel safe using it, I felt safe using the first Noe 7, never stopped using it.

    All battery operated electronics have the possibility of going up in flames. I think phones are more prone because people put them in their pockets creating more heat.

    Don't understand why you don't trust your new phone.

    Relax, and enjoy your phone.

    I trust that samsung fixed the issue and the new Note 7 are safe to use. They handled this recall pretty well, if you ask me. Don't think too much into it. They never would have put it back out if it wasn't safe for use.

    Too much paranoia here. Samsung can not afford there image to be tarnished anymore than what it already has. Sit back and enjoy the phone.

    I trusted my first N7. No reason to not trust my replacement.

    I'm still using my N7 while i await a replacement. I still don't believe most of those concocted stories and have trusted my phone from day 1.

    I trust my phone as much as I trust any phone, which is close to 100%. Anything with a battery COULD be bad.

    I feel safe. What does worry me are people trying to exploit the phone with fake claims of replacement phones catching on fire. Hopefully that is not the case.

    So many products with the batteries and so many using the N7 with no issues. Factor in the media hyped incidents so far being or getting debunked- no worry warranted.

    I trust it. Was ready to buy right when everything started going down. It has not deterred me & will be buying this weekend.

    Here's why I'm not concerned = corporate greed. In the grand scheme of things, Samsung moved FAST to replace N7's worldwide. They've already taken a huge hit financially & it would be even more disastrous to profits if they screwed up even more.

    Samsung may or may not have the consumer in mind, but they absolutely do have their bottom line in mind. And that is a powerful motivator to get this right the second time.

    I feel just as safe as with any other phone or device. I think Samsung jumped on the problem and have complete confidence that everything is OK now.

    Things more likely to kill you this year in the US than the *Exploding Version* of the GN7... (using CDC 2014 stats)

    • Heart disease: 614,348
    • Cancer: 591,699
    • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 147,101
    • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 136,053
    • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 133,103
    • Alzheimer's disease: 93,541
    • Diabetes: 76,488
    • Influenza and pneumonia: 55,227
    • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 48,146
    • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 42,773

    # of people who died in fires in 2014: 3,428

    # of people Killed by the "Exploding Version" of the GN7... 0

    Perspective...

    People will say, "But this is so easily preventable - change out your phone"... to which I would agree. I got my new one yesterday, in fact...

    But, many of the things listed above can also have their likelihood of occurrence reduced by lifestyle changes. If you are a smoker, overweight, not managing your diabetes, not getting the flu vaccine, or the mental health services you need, you would appear to be at a MUCH higher risk for death due to the causes listed above than you would EVER be by a NEW GN7.

    Again, perspective... :-)

    I think that if even a short list of how many varied items used lithium batteries were put out there, the sky might be falling for a few people.
