    He also purchased this Note 7 from JD.COM which is basically a Chinese version of Amazon. Now I'm just speculating here but just because the IMEI on the box checks out doesn't mean the IMEI on this actual device checks out. For all we know the seller on this website could of sold him a recalled Note 7 and put it in a replacement Note 7 box. Did they check the IMEI on the actual device or just the one on the box?

    There just have been too many stories out there of exploding Note 7's that have damaged property or caused harm to people and the stories turned out to be false.

    That kid whose supposedly said the Note 7 caught fire in his pocket while at Costco was a fraud. He claimed that he didn't know about the recall but people found out that he was tweeting about the recall on his Twitter account the day Samsung issued the recall. Then he deleted all the tweets on his Twitter account.
    He also worked at a cell phone store and Costco so he absolutely knew about the recall but failed to listen to the warnings issued by Samsung. If you work at a cell phone store you will have no issues getting a loaner phone. He was just looking to become rich quick and it back fired on him. I also agree as I need confirmation from a reputable source before I believe these type of stories.

    You see, in this particular case, the rear glass panel popped up, possibly caused by the battery inflating due to a ruptured cell.
    In an Android FB group I seen a pic where the back panel was popped off. Guy had put up in a box waiting to exchange. Went to take out of Box and back panel was separated. It Didn't show any burn marks nor did he claim it did so.

    Funny... People don't believe what they read on the net.... Unless it says new phones are safe. Then believe it for sure.

    Who's to say he didn't drop it causing the battery to be damaged. I dropped my evo 3d and it instantly started getting warm.

    This whole ordeal is a win win, can go either way… either

    a) People are oh so unbelievably gullible, if this were true it would be on mainstream news with more media coverage than this unknown website. And not only that, but that people really shouldn't "feel sorry for" these corporations as if you actually really knew, you'd be fully aware that Apple and Samsung are in cahoots as with such companies such as Coca-Cola/Pepsi, McDonald's/Burger King, CVS/Walgreens, Walmart/KMart, Apple/Microsoft, etc. Etc. Etc. They really don't "feel the pain" as they are wayyy to "powerful".

    or

    b) yes these Phones are a disaster and the ONLY way to ensure ABSOLUTE Safety in the future is to NEVER again produce ANY phone with an Unremovable Battery. EVER.

    We'll that's not true either, because I never believe ANYTHING it completely safe 100 percent of the time.

    Try again.

    Nothing is 100% safe. The question is whether the Note 7 is as safe as Note 5. I doubt it. Even now. We'll see

    Here's my thing. I don't know and I don't care. What I mean by that is, the damage is done to the Note 7 brand. It's done. In terms of public perception, they are not safe, no matter what Samsung has done to ensure people that's not the case.

    If one Note 7 blows up, it's now one too many. If 2 S7 Edge or iPhone 7 phones blow up, it's barely a story.

    It's all about perception at this point. So no, I'm not going to just believe a story I read on the net about a random "new" Note 7 exploding. When it's proven to be true, or several more blow up, then you'll get my attention.

    On the other hand, this phone will never be thought of as safe even if not another one blows up ever.

    Samsung has a major rep problem to overcome. What I think about a phone halfway across the world blowing up is irrelevant.

    I mean if it happens now, compared to if it happens to a Note.

    Right. But that is NOT the case with a Note 7, new or otherwise.

    If a Note 7 looks at someone funny it's news, even if it's one of the so called "good" ones.

    Doesn't have to hurt anyone. Just damage to the phone itself is enough...Apparently

    Right now, any type of failure is going to make news... because anything "NOTE 7 FIREZ" will get clicks, or ratings, etc. That's how it'll be for a little bit, at least until the next shiny thing catches the media's attention and they move on.

    Fact is that there WILL be story where a new Note 7 catches fire.... it happens. You go digging around and you'll find stories of damn near every phone on the market suffering a nasty battery failure. It's the nature of the beast. But a story about a Moto Z catching fire is ho-hum... but another Note 7? Whoa nelly....

    So Samsung will be on top of anything that pops up... and they will be held to a higher standard than the other OEMS. They aren't going to be given any sort of leeway when it comes to any type of failure, even if the new Note 7s end up with a much lower failure rate than the rest of the industry. But that's the price they'll pay for releasing a phone with a nasty defect.

    Oh that's right... your post reminds me you had that issue with #brickgate with those exynos machines. With all the explosion talk other issues got pushed to the side... wonder if that's been resolved?

    I'm not sure.

    So far, it's working fine. But I'm not sure what else has changed aside from the battery.

    Though one thing was different in this one compared to my old one. The S Pen now fits much more tightly in its cavity, and wobbles around far less than before.

    Samsung can't seem to catch a break. They have PR nightmare on their hands right now. Look at the article below, now they are having problem with their washing machines.

    Now Samsung (KRX: 005930) washing machines are blowing up too, after the Galaxy Note 7 recall — Quartz
