    No, I doubt they will even consider ending the series over a battery issue.

    Nope, doubt it (and I just got back from getting my replacement Note and the Samsung rep said that 90%, at least in T-Mobile, are keeping with the Note brand even after the recall). But if you want, you can hear it from 'the pros'.

    Unless it totally bankrupts them, why would they stop? It's a really good phone.

    No, if anything it will cause them to institute more stringent QC methods and maybe take more time to get a product to market instead of rushing it out the door to beat a rival phone to market. The Note line is a winner for Samsung and a very popular product. It may take some time to win back consumer confidence due to the media reports which blew things out of proportion but I fully expect to be buying a Note 8 around this time next year.

    Why do you say bankrupt? Do you know how huge Samsung conglomerate is?

    No. Could have happened to any phone. What are they going to do, get out of the phone business and start digging ditches for a living?

    They had a batch of bad batteries, they fixed it. They hopefully learned from it. I'm not sure what more you can expect.

    I've heard many people say the Note was rushed to beat the iPhone. I don't think that's true because it came out the same time as the 5 did. If anything, the 5 was rushed because it came in August instead of the used to be usual October.

    I agree on this issue not causing Samsung to quit on the Notes. I believe QC on all of their phones will be much tighter and better than ever.

    Yes, because amongst Apple people, everything comes back to the iPhone.

    Samsung couldn't be rushing to make a deadline, it had to be because of Apple. lol

    I'm more curious to see if they really go all out for the Note 8 to make up for the Note 7 battery issue. I'm tempted to hold on to my note 4 and see what the note 8 will bring.

    Well even if no else wants the Note, they can make one just for me each year....lol, love that danm phone. I am looking for a back up phone and everything looks soooo blah n blaze (Even the S7 Edge). So I am keeping the Note 7, even if I get the 8 next year. It will be my back up. The battery life on the new one is amazing soo far (after Tmobile update), better than the first one I had.

    Samsung will not stop making this line of phones any time soon.

    Speaking of the Note 8; how will one differentiate between it and the Note 8 tablet? Or is the tablet so old no one even remembers it?

    Of course they will go all out for the note 8 especially since it's competing with the iPhone anniversary edition

    I seriously doubt that this will end the Note series. This is a great device. They had a problem. They acted quickly to rectify the problem. I think that their reputation may even be a bit enhanced because of how quickly they handled the battery issue.

    Iphone 7 also has some issues happening but not as widespread as the Note 7. Hissing sound and some losing cell service where they had it before. Time will tell.

    I personally would like to see them combine the note with the Edge since they're both phablet like devices. Probably too late to do that for next year though.

    However it might cost them sales because of power users like us on this forum who will likely buy the S8 Edge and then buy the Note 8 6 months later lol. The last two years is how that went with the Edge it seems like. Note users buy the new Edge device, then buy the new Note.

    If Note 7 is a crap phone, maybe. But it's Samsung's best phone ever.

    I didn't read all these comments but Sammy will keep plugging away. This might make them reconsider the removal battery. Just think how much less costly it would have been to just replace batteries

    What could they possibly bring in an N8? It does everything so many features already that are often unused. I'm curious to find out what an upgraded N7 would be.
    It's unlikely that Samsung would discontinue a popular series IMO

    I think we could be in for a real treat with the next Note, which I think will be a reinventing of the series.

    Is the question really a serious one? I can't believe OP has entertained the thought that this issue would "end" the Note line. C'mon!

    Anyway, I always thought the Note 8 as well as the GS8 will be something special as 8 is a lucky number in China and some other East Asian countries and while this is a South Korean manufacturer, I think they will at least do something very special for at least the China version... lol

    I have always said Samsung should just release two models at the same time 5.5 & 5.7 inches every year. The S7 and s7 edge were amazing phones And still are... They could just offer the s pen with the 5.7 like they do now with the Note. Makes no sense giving phones like this a shorter shelf time. Works with apple every year right?
