    It was a big enough issue that Samsung... they... issued a recall of all of their phones.

    Let's face it. If there is even a hint at Samsung products being defective or "exploding" the media is going to rush to print. I will admit there is an issue but I don't feel it's that big of an issue. Just my opinion.

    Maybe the next accessory for the Note 7 will be a portable fire-safe Buy a Note 7 now and get a FREE personal fire-safe just in case your Note 7 gets it's flame goin' onnnnnn! I hope I am still tomorrow.... I have a flight this weekend. Doh!

    Why
    You think this will break Samsung.
    Wrong
    They are a 300 billion dollar company.
    It will make them do some changes.

    I think they need to make the phone housing stronger. The whole problem is The lithium battery, and shorts from the mother board getting broke.
    It won't break the company into bankruptcy, but it'll further damage the reputation of the Note 7, at a time when that's the last thing it wants.

    Would not kill Sammy, but would most likely the Note 7. How would it not?? Again, IF legit and Samsung post recall assessment turns out Sammy were not forthright in their root cause identification and corrective action measures.

    I'm along for the ride.
    Don't care if it takes time and another replacement.
    I don't like flying much.
    And I don't want to get on a cruise ship.
    I don't have nothing but time.
    Can set up a new phone in 30 minutes or less .
    So Samsung get it on.
    I can WAIT.

    I didn't say it would break Samsung... I said it would probably end it for Note 7 run.

    I mean we are getting close to holiday shopping season... if they had to do another recall they'd miss it and no point on pushing the Note 7 with it's image tainted. Just end it and wait for Note 8. They still have their rep intact on the S7/Edge and they'll just have to push on with S8 next year. But they'll have to be perfect on the S8. Find out what did the Note 7 in and make sure not on the S8. Boy if it's a usb-c issue and they go with the same design they used in the Note??

    But no I didnt say this issue with one model would break Samsung.

    I am never going to purchase or recommend a 2016 Samsung device becuase of this. 2015 devices were bad, but they didn't go boom. If the Galaxy S8 or Note S8 have these problems, goodbye samsung. And, no, I will not switch to an iPhone. Even if every Android device exploded.

    Yeah I'm not in the mood to wait another year... I can run with a new loaner iPhone for as long as I want and not spend a dime... but I'm really wanting to play with the Note 7 features. In a year who knows what cool phone comes out.

    Wait another year for a Note phone.
    No way.

    In all seriousness, are people sticking with the Note 7? I've been away from android for a long time now so I'm a little worried about all this negative press the phone has gotten.
    I'm definitely sticking with the Note 7. It's going to get bad press no matter what. I could care less about the biased press. It's going to be like Samsung is Trump and apple is Hillary from now on and Tim crook is a Hillary supporter. The Note is still the best phone out. Was never worried with my old Note 7 still not worried with my new Note 7.

    I sit back after reading these posts and start to wonder, is the rest of the world laughing at us? Everyone, breath, relax. As far as planes go. I've already sent the FAA a letter suggesting all phones be turned off during flight, each and every one of them have this risk. I know, the thought of not staring at your phone during flight is a horrifying thought, read a book, Crossword puzzle, word search, oh here is one, talk to each other, oh the thought of talking and not texting, what a silly idea.

    That conflicts with the finding they published stating it was a battery manufacturing issue. Too much pressure during the process to seal the layers together. The result was insulation issues that could create a short with the anode and cathode layers. That was published during the CPSC review.
    Yes, a classic cause of thermal runaway. Since I really like this phone, I hope something else is not going on.

    I will keep my Note 7 since it rocks, but that presumes things do not escalate again and then Samsung sends another update to gimp the current post recall devices. They did it before they can do it again.

    The statements were from anonymous employees, though.

    Unless anything comes out from the company publicly, it's a bit of a hard call.

    I'll be keeping the Note 7 for the foreseeable future unless this escalates. I'm on JOD so a different device is easy but there is absolutely nothing out or coming soon that can touch this phone IMO. But if this leads to some kind of ban from the FAA I'll have no choice but to find something else.

    True dat, but Sammy did not push back at all. No way they would leave it alone unless they did not want the issue dug into even deeper. Not a good PR thing.

    You need to educate yourself about believing what you read on the Internet. Samsung in no way confirmed this lol

    Right, I am sure they would confirm that they intentionally rushed out a product that compromised safety and could lead to property and personal damage.

    The mental gymnastics that people go through around a phone manufacturer....

    So I got my replacement on the 21st. My two week window from Verizon is up today. Fifteen days is twenty minutes away. If I took it back in mentioning the newest fire, are they going to take it back or am I now stuck with this phone? I'm not even worried about blowing up honestly. But the device is tarnished beyond repair. And I do fly a lot and not having my phone on a plane is out of the question. Since the recall hasn't solved whatever the fire issue is, I don't want stuck with a phone that has no resale value. If I sold it now, I'd probably lose a few hundred. I bought the phone outright.

    Of course they wouldn't. That's why the assertion that they themselves admitted rushing their product is insane beyond words.

    I'm in the same boat, as will many other people will be or already are. But it's too early to tell what our carriers will do, as they will wait for word from Samsung and Samsung is awaiting word from our CPSC. We don't know the full details yet and likely won't for the next few days or week (or more).

    If you're able to find a store (your carrier store) and a General Manager who will process an exchange for you, that could be an option.

    I think the best thing to do is sit tight and wait for a few days as more info comes out. If more of these reports begin to surface we'll likely go through another recall, but until we get more info, the majority of us N7 owners will operate as usual.
