    I am slightly annoyed. There are reports of other phones exploding in the news and it seems like the only people care about is the note 7.

    I have the Note 7 and love it. I think Sammy did as good of a job with the recall as you can expect.

    Tmobile gave me zero hassles. Made the order, replacement showed up, got the text, went to store swapped out.

    As for the recent airline incident. I will wait for further information. I have a very strong distrust in our media, they are driven to follow a narrative and truth & objectivity be damned.

    The technology that all modern smart phones use is called Lithium Ion. Look it up. They have inherent safety risks.

    Google [Name a smartphone] and fire. And you will see every make & model has had failures. It just happened Samsung saw there was a much higher than normal fare rate on the Note 7 and issued the recall.

    IMHO, the biggest cause of random Li-Ion battery failures is user related. Like putting your phone in your back pocket, you have a larger than normal posterior or tight pants and that force causes the phone to flex, and that in turn causes the battery to flex and the path to failure is before you. Li-Ion batteries are also very sensitive to temperature ranges. They all get warm when charging or heavy discharge, don't amplify it by placing the device on a very warm or hot surface.

    I think there are forces that have it out for Samsung. To their credit Sammy is ruling the roost on Android smartphones. Would you put it past their competitors to pay for agenda journalism for their own benefit?

    I will not drag politics into this, but I will say, in political forums you can easily spot the "Paid spammer". And as much as I like Android Central I have seen many posts about the Note 7 on this forum that sets off the alarms to me that the same kind of agenda driven spamming is happening here.

    I guess I need a new bumper sticker: YOU CAN HAVE MY NOTE 7 WHEN YOU PRY IT FROM MY COLD, DEAD & BURNT FINGERS

    (See! I can still make jokes about the situation. But I'm keeping my N7)

    what is annoying is not how Samsung has handled it but how if you show the AT&T personnel the statement that was posted on the front of Android Central and they say we know nothing about a refund or different phone so we cannot help you and wow you do know you are past your 14 day return period. The dude read the article twice and still said he couldn't help me. If you issue a statement then get all your ducks and chicks in a row so there are no damn screw ups

    Another issue confusing me. The man said it was in his pocket and it started pouring out smoke. Never did he say it caught on fire. Now every article I read says the phone caught on fire or exploded.

    Sorry to hear about the replacement issues. I had zero hassles with Tmoble. I knew just going to the store on the 1st weekend of the replacements was not smart. So I called Tmo and they confirmed & shipped it to a store of my choosing and sent a text telling me it arrived. Went and swapped out.

    I think some of the carriers are pulling back because of the handful of people that ruin it for the rest of us by screaming & yelling at the representative in the store or on the phone.

    I'm not "annoyed by the "exploding" note 7 fiasco." This is not the first time a defective product was recalled; and it probably won't be the last.

    I know stuff happens but this has me pretty bummed and irritated at samsung. After the last recall experience, much of the bad experience was due to Best Buy, but in the end Samsung has to answer for it.

    I was so relieved the day I recieved my replacement and very happy to put all the BS behind me. Now here we go again a short time later. I think i am jumping ship. I hope Samsung offers a deal for us prior N7 owners when the N8 is released or I may just abandon Samsung all together. And no a memory card with N8 won't reel me back in. A little bitter I am I suppose, I just don't see this phone getting updates and such now. Too bad it was a great phone, I am still baffled how this went south so quick but cant blame the carriers frustration, they just want this over with too.

    From day one I always wondered about all the wasted time carrier employees had to apply to the N7 disaster and how they would be (if at all) compensated. They could have been dealing with everyday sales and reliable phone issues instead of wasting resources on the N7 disaster.

    Im annoyed at the exploding claims. No Note 7 is exploding. Smoking? Yes. Catching fire? Yes. But not exploding. I'm not overly concerned about it. All of my note 7s (I've had 4) has been great but the first one which would deplete completely at 40%. So I probably had a bad battery the first time. I keep an eye out on it, but again not overly concerned. Besides what other device would give me coral blue color.

    How exactly would the battery catch fire or smoke without becoming ruptured by pressure, which is the very definition of explosion? The amount of heat it would take to spontaneously combust would have boiled the electrolyte long before that happened, and the expansion would have ruptured the battery case. If the electrolyte caught fire from contact with an exposed electrical part, it was outside of a ruptured battery case.

    Explosion sounds scary, but that's exactly what is happening. Not every explosion looks like something from a Die Hard movie We're just programmed to think big and loud when we hear the word explosion.

    Because people are afraid. It's silly (unless there is an issue with the replacements and i dont think there is) but it is what it is. People don't understand what is happening and don't feel a need to find out when they can just not touch anything Samsung to avoid it. When Samsung shows off the next best shiny thing ever, they'll forget.

    The Louisville International Airport dept. of safety (yes, that's a mouthful) said it caught fire and burned through the carpet. We weren't there, so we can only know what the firemen and cops say happened and look at the pictures of Note 7 shaped holes burned in carpet

    But they don't hesitate if it's samsung note 7.

    One evening news, was talking about the note 7 on plane smoking. The photo was not a note 7 they were showing, guess they use any photo they have. Lol. It was samsung though .

    I think most of you know that I have been DEFENDING Samsung from Day 1 and telling everyone to RELAX and how much I LOVE this device. My answer to the OP's question now is YES - if Samsung or AT&T offer a Full Refund, I'm OUT! I think it's finally time to abandon this slowly sinking ship and wait for the Google Pixel phone to arrive - I've read the reviews and like what I've read and I think that's my next phone. But ONLY if Samsung does a FULL REFUND - I don't want any other Samsung device! The Note 7 was my Baby and I don't want to go backwards and settle for my Note 5 - I already did that for 2 weeks! We will see I guess!

    I filter out most of the ignorance often reported by the media. They are what is annoying, not Samsung.

    I am a big fan of Samsung products. In the past few months I have ventured into buying some Samsung appliances for my home as well. My kids absolutely love the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator!

    If the Note 7 ends up being a bust, no big deal. I will still buy Samsung products in the future.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I haven't seen any pictures of this incident. The Verge article shows a Samsung phone on the floor of the plane. No burn hole in the carpet. Also, the only one saying it burned through the carpet is his colleague. "Green's colleague went back onto the plane to retrieve some personal belongings and said that the phone had burned through the carpet and scorched the subfloor of the plane." I'm not saying something didn't happen. And you are correct, I wasn't there. It just seems things aren't matching up for me.

    I really don't want to go out on this limb but I'm going to just to make a "US Media" point - the iPhone (Apple in general) is probably a Democrat! :-)

    NOTE: Again people, this aimed at the American Media, not my Democrat friends on here!!!!!

    I can understand the fear, but so many do not realize that it's the lithium ion battery that is the real culprit. They can avoid Samsung all they want, doesn't mean that their iphone or other android phone isn't going to have the same problem down the line.

    I would love to see a safe alternative to these batteries, unfortunately I don't know what that would be.

    There are plenty of reports on the web of recent iPhones exploding, it's really surprising that basically no one cares unless there's a Samsung name on it. Hell, even those articles about iPhones exploding have to mention the note 7, yet it's never the other way around. 🤔

    Well, whatever the case, my litmus will be the decision on the Note 7. If recall is voluntary and the device will be supported with updates- keeping it.

    How exactly is the Note "the smoking gun" for the Note? Do you mean the Note is the smoking gun for people saying Samsung makes trash phones? I'm not saying they do I'm just asking.
    Let me help you out. 35 notes are reported to have exploded in the WORLD. At the time, 2.5 million had been sold. If you do the math: 35/2,500,000.00= .000014x100= .0014%. And the 35 notes? Lol that's not confirmed. .014% is the chance you are dealing with lol.

    Trust me. No one will listen. They all rather complain and make speculation and irritate them self about the situation. Then say going to buy an iPhone but linger around here. Rather have them exchange it. Move on and complain about their new phone on their new thread.

    Any who what's a bad number for phones catching fire? How many people have to be hurt or what exactly is the property damage have to be before it becomes an issue?

    One thing you forgot in your wonderful equation "time". How fast did those 35 issues (I thought the real number was in the 60s) happen? Add that into your equation over the two years? Let's see 35 phones burn up every 3 weeks / 52 weeks a year is 17 * 2 = 1,213 phones or people if we assume no property damage. So you find it funny that at a minimum 1,213 people could be hurt by phones over 2 years? How much is 1 life worth? Now you can...lol

    You are so right. The CPSC reported/confirmed 92 cases in the US alone when they insisted Samsung institute an official recall. There were cases reported after their statement. Samsung itself theorized that there could potentially be 1000+ bad batteries that could explode/catch fire. They couldn't take a chance that someone would eventually be seriously hurt or even die. They were stupid enough to wait to issue an official recall. They would have been brain dead to not have a recall. Given the potential for even more disaster, they should be prepared to kill the Note 7.
