    Depends on the findings of the event.

    Maybe the Note 7 had no chance as soon as the initial problem hit the media. Even if the problem is fixed, the fact that even a replaced device can fail would be too much for the public to handle. Statistically, whatever the failure rate is, it's too much for the public to handle. 100 in a million, no one wants to knowingly take that risk. Maybe if the public didn't know about this incident, all would be well.
    The thing is the public is taking that risk with any phone or electronic device. Just goes to show how many people are sheep and allow themselves to be herded by the media

    Driving is FAR more likely to hurt or kill you, but that is applying logic. Our society has become a bunch of wimps (no disrespect). I spent years in the Marines, so I'm jaded like that. 0331 Ooorah!

    Yes and let's not forget how many people use there phone while driving and texting really increases the danger factor

    That's making an excuse for a product that people have reported a serious safety issue on and trying to give them a pass. This issue... like I said, 2 cases so far with the new black square labled "safe" units and overheating issues reported in S. Korea on the newer units. Time will tell if it is but I'm not gonna give them a free pass so soon.

    The first issue that led to the recall?? They owned up to it... you don't recall 2.5 million units unless there was something really wrong with it but you want to blur it because of a possibly dishonest jeep owner or a couple of other stories. Samsung had their own list of documented incidents that led them to make the recall.

    Wow... This thread blew up since yesterday...

    If there were other reports I'd be more concerned... As it stands now - indications are this may be a single (unfortunate) incident.
    This.

    I can't believe the speculation without any details. Was the phone plugged in? If not wouldn't the episode be an extremely perfect storm? Is the model confirmed? If confirmed N7... has it been confirmed to be pre/post recall?

    Hate to say it, but I would say yes, it's as good as dead. I can't see many who will still consider buying a Note 7 at this point.

    Heck, the one thing I wish they'd get from this is that the battery SHOULD BE REMOVABLE. This feature alone could have solved a TON of problems...
    It would also create a ton of new ones. First of all: removable battery and waterproof don't go together well. Secondly, even if the battery is removable: if you have a broken one installed, it'll still burn / blow up. Thirdly, phones with removable battery were prone to blowing up. Why? Because people were buying el-cheapo third-party batteries from China.

    The only one who'd profit from that would be Samsung, as they could recall the batteries rather than the entire phone.

    Again trying to not be too negative however im feeling the replacement devices were rushed too and may have issues. My replacement has gotten bit warm since two days so idk... I'm worried about it blowing up bit trying to hold on to the last glimmer of hope that the replacement devices are in fact safe but doubt it ugh

    This is why I returned. I want no worries when it comes to my device. Some will disagree but I just don't see it as worth it so .. I returned and bought another phone.

    Which phone did you end up getting instead? The weird thing about this is that I flew for 6 hours the day before southwest airlines news and used my phone the entire time on board. Crazy stuff very upset with Samsung. I think they rushed it all. Probably paid cpsc who also didn't care :/

    Almeuit? He ordered a Pixel XL. Originally wanted a V20 but the wait was too long for him.

    Probably so, unfortunately.

    It's such a shame that one of the best phones Samsung has made and probably one of the best phones of the year ended up being a PR disaster.

    I just hope this is a learning experience.

    I believe the opposite. I feel Samsung needs to show that they won't just ditch their problematic phones and don't mind spending some money to make things right with their customers. Building their image as caring corporate company rather than a greedy profit only company would help them a long way in my opinion. The Note 7 however would need re-branding like Note 7+ or something on those lines I saw suggested elsewhere after proper testing and recall. Heck, push back the S8 to make it right.

    But then again, that's just my opinion.

    Anybody want to wait until the facts are in and announced before freaking out? In the first 2 weeks the phone was out the first time, they had about 40 incidences documented. In the couple weeks since people have been getting replacements, there's been one. And while fewer were sold or sent out this time, that still doesn't scream disaster to me in terms of using this phone. If there is another recall, yeah sure, I will sadly give the phone up, but someone has to prove to me that one incident means all the replacements are bad.

    If the Note 7 is nixed, I guess the S7 Edge will still be near the top of all Android phones until the S8 comes out.

    Not plugged in, actually powered off

    Here is the interview with the guy at the airport. He states that it was the replacement unit. They ran the IMEI and on Samsung's site and it said it was a safe unit.

    A lot of devices might get warm due to the processor, not the battery. My old galaxy nexus used to get really warm. No issues there though. I don't think there is any warning when batteries just implode.

    Possibly the carrier taking the initiative to stop sales again until more info found on the current issue. Wouldn't surprise me... this current issue is just too hot... you got a major airline carrier involved in your headline news now. The carriers have to deal with a lot with customers during the first recall and probably made no money on the phone either and probably lost in manpower spent.

    If Samsung doesn't pull the plug on the Note 7, the carriers could do it... say, "we sell a lot of models, happy to keep selling S7/Edges... we don't sell all Samsung models anyways and don't need to deal with the Note 7 anymore. We'll pass until the Note 8."

    If it was the battery, you can't turn it off once the process starts. That's like blowing out the match after the fuse is already lit.
