    Unusual pressure? Like tight rear pockets every other phone withstands? Time to face reality. This is not a conspiracy of Apple terrorists
    I didn't mean to imply, don't think I did, that it was a conspiracy of anyone. I just meant that I had a friend with an old LG that was in a very tight case and it overheated endlessly until he took it out of the case. Not the same, it didn't burst into flames. I just don't like coming to conclusions before there are actual facts to base it on. But I don't blame anyone if they want to bail on the phone.

    And my only point was a phone that vents due to pressure placed on it short of crushing the phone into bits is badly built. It is predictable that phones are under pressure in peoples' rear pockets. I've seen people jam phones into a rear pocket too tight to hold a handkerchief. It amazes me the screen doesn't break. Still, their phones don't burst or vent.

    More devices would have to catch fire. I don't see this happening otherwise. If so I'll go to the LG V20 reluctantly.

    I'd be cool with a 4th and 5th free sd card If eBay gets me 200$ each then at least the exploding phone was free.

    My job is much easier with an spen so I'll only be really disappointed if they recall but don't replace the phone.

    the replacement note 7 catching on fire on southwest airlines was a huge blow to samsung while struggling to salvage the reputation of the n7.
    Unfortunately there are now reports of a second replacement n7 exploding in Taiwan in a females back pocket, sadly folks that may be the curtain call for the n7.

    You never know with technology - sometimes, with the very best of intentions, they tend to have a mind of their own. Hopefully, a second recall is not needed.

    I don't care if they don't do another recall as long as they say that whatever was causing the issue is fixed. I will just make sure that I don't buy a phone older than the day they announce that.

    That's if you can find it for sale anywhere...

    With this latest report... I now would expect another recall with full refund as early as next week and possibly removal of all stock by the carriers indefinitely - with a much longer review and testing cycle to verify that the issue has been resolved...

    We are looking at months now instead of a few weeks - keep in mind CPSC also has egg on their face with this and I expect they will perform extensive review and testing now that this has happened with their previous approval also now under scrutiny... It shouldn't be lost here that they also potentially will share some of the blame here in allowing Samsung to release another faulty device after working with them directly...

    And now a third - this one in Minnesota.

    I hope they don't recall. If they do I hope they wait until the V20 is available. There's nothing else out there I'd be interested in. Pixel... meh.

    Another replacement note 7 went boom. It is likely.

    90+ iPhones in a matter of weeks prompting an official recall and there would be similar "media hype." Hell there was glee after that student's phone caught fire and he admitted it already had a crack on it and it was in his back pocket (which probably means he sat on it numerous times)

    You'd think they'd offer her the newest model plus a new dresser and anything else damaged by the fire.

    After the Minnesota report, I'm now pretty sure that it's likely.

    Seriously, Samsung.....
