    A couple of days ago Jim Cramer on CNBC (I don't know really why I still follow him but... ) tweeted and I don't know where he based it on,

    "it was NOT the batteries, that's the whole point. It was the wiring.."

    Looking at tweets fir #Note7 I found this one:

    Samsung contradicts his statement from earlier articles by telling the press it was them ... So not sure where he is pulling that from.

    Unless fjngers no longer function it won't result in enough of a payday to intentionally destroy a computer & burn yourself.
    With jacked fingers he can no longer use Samsung's fingerprint scanner, so there's that... lol

    Wait- iris scanner still works well though- Foiled again, Batman.

    "Wow! Look at the smoke and fire!! It's so real it's like I can almost FEEL the heat from the flames!"

    Oops.

    I love my replacement N7 btw. My battery life has been insane. This is truly sad- this is an amazing phone... when you get one that works properly.

    I will throw out there that if there is a recall part II, I'm done with the Note 7.
    Oh boy, if there's a Note7 battery recall v2.0, it's going to be another mess, probably a bigger one, considering that Tim Baxter himself publicly stated that the new ones are safe, putting his rep and that of Samsung, on the line.

    I really hope that doesn't happen, though, but I've planned ahead anyway.

    What the hell does Apple have to do with it? I went from Note 3 to Note 7 back to Note 3. I love Note phones. Just don't trust the 7 now. A month of good reviews here and I'm back in Note 7 but I won't be the crash dummy at full price.

    I'm a crash dummy at half price... We exercised AT&T's BOGO offer when my wife got a new S7.

    No, I personally won't pay full price for the Note 7 either. I was going to at release... planned to buy with BB card over payments to avoid losing my unlimited plan with AT&T lol. But right now if my only choice was full price I wouldn't. I have an "in" through work to get at discount and waiting for a few more weeks to see if any deals like free memory or something to make it more a value.

    There won't be a second recall - if this is all for real, regardless of the cause, it will be the end of the Note 7 model and on to 2017 hopefully for a Note 8 revision. So sad to see this happening to one of the best smartphones ever...but guilt by association is an awful thing, and only diehards like the folks around here will keep buying at this rate...

    Does Samsung paying tribute to terror organizations??? so explosive lately!!!

    Another recall won't happen, they will to axe the Note 7, as it already losing even before selling, with iPhone 7 is out, v20 will be out soon, and S7E is great alternative to Note 7, there is zero reason to buy the Note unless u need the spen badly.

    Samsung recalls Note 7 due to battery issues.

    Charlatans take advantage to get $$$ or their 15 minutes of fame.

    CPSC takes advantage to wage political battles.

    Bloggers take advantage to get clicks.

    Consumers suffer.

    Read the article. It says incident not pictured. Meaning they threw original N7 pics up just as bait.

    People can think whatever they want, but I don't automatically believe what I read on the Internet.

    I need a little more conformation than a staged photo and click bait articles.

    What ended up happening with that kid and the supposed Note 7 exploding on him? Exactly.

    While I get being skeptic isn't a bad thing since you don't want to believe everything... But batteries exploding was the reason for the recall so I'm baffled how some act as if it's all a lie. Sure some are... The whole time I've been alive I've never seem something that affects every single person or device 100% but keep in mind some were legit and that's why Samsung did what they did. They wouldn't do a mass recall if they didn't have any true evidence on some issues / claims.

    That's not the original article either. Not to mention the fact that oh yeah my friend is here to video it while it burns my house to the ground. Funny how that happens isn't it? Like the gas container in the passenger seat in the jeep. So exactly where did his woman sit? Batteries can go up in smoke but these people are just looking for a payout. Also in this video I can't tell but is that how the Asian charger looks? Looks kinda like the U.S. charger with those prongs.

    Yeah, I don't care if there were 6 billion recalls done. I make it a habit to wait for more info before believing what I read on the net.
