    I'm actually hope they are halting production to say they are have found the issue, making adjustments and will resume production and sales.

    This is their flagship phone... their best phone. Part of me thinks it would be an embarrassment and a greater loss of face to just kill it. They have to see it through no matter the cost.. rerelease the phone, show they will support it and do right with it to show their commitment before S8 comes out. They can extend the run date and push Note release at same time at S9 release February '18... S9 S9E and S9Pro.

    Guess we'll find out soon enough what they plan to do but I hope they keep going and the carriers give it a shot once they are convinced it's really really fixed.
    Same here.

    There isn't a real good substitute, so I would suggest getting a refund (if forced) and getting something cheap to use until something better comes along.

    I can hope

    Well I'm itching To get a phone and the Note really got me excited. if the Note is dead then not as excited with the OnePlus3 or ZTE now... guess wait to see S8... guess I can wait for Note 8 if I had to. By then also have to see the 10th anniversary IPhone 8

    No way. It's done.

    Damn you, Samsung.

    A phone I actually would have kept using for 2 or more years and this.

    Nothing else on the market worth buying. Meh.

    Is it possible that Samsung with explore new battery tech because of this fiasco? Everything about smart phones has evolved over the years except battery tech so maybe they're will be drastic change in this department.

    Was anything wrong with the S6 or Note5 batteries? I think they just tried to compress them too much to give consumers a bigger battery. Maybe they'll go away from the ultra slim phones and just put in whatever size is deemed safe.

    Sadly this forum has become loaded with Samsung haters. Not just talking about the battery issue but reading the Mods on here and the site itself plus this forum has become some kind of witch hunt against the note 7. But here are some site facts...... I made the topic of this thread say why can other companies like Apple get away with some phones catching fire and it was LESS THEN 1 MINUTE LATER CHANGED NOT TO INCLUDE ANYTHING BAD ABOUT APPLE. every time on this site the Iphone is attacked the topic changes. I have both note 7's in my house. I have the 1st and the replacement and i am getting ready to ship the 1st once back. But this site has become like the #debate on tv tonight. The attacks on Samsung and the note 7 have been targeted by many people on this site. Yes there is a problem and use note 7 users have the right to be mad at them and i hope it gets worked out. But the witch hunt by board members on here is very easy to see and targeted as if they're getting paid to put down samsung and the note 7.

    Again there is a problem with this phone BUT there is also problems with others who for whatever reason are acting like they're being paid to try and bury Samsung on this site....

    I keep getting the feeling that this whole issue revolves around the new technology of USB-C cables and 3.1 charging (even though 3.1 isn't supported on the Note 7). Several manufacturers have already pulled USB-C cables from the market, and USB-C cables have been known to overcharge.

    To my knowledge, the Note 7 is the only phone to use this technology.

    This is the Note 7 forum, not the iPhone forum. It has nothing to do with good or bad vs iPhone, it has to do with why does it need to be discussed in the Note 7 forum. Your thread became the main thread to discuss the Note 7 battery issue and Mods closed about 5 other threads to make this the main one.

    First of all

    We don't hate devices. Our mod team has used a variety of different phones and we all have our own opinions on them. We do not blindly hate on any device, and we feel that users should do the same.

    Second of all, the reason why some posts have been removed was because some posts were violating our rules. It has nothing to do with a love/hate relationship with the phone. We've also closed other threads in order to keep the Note 7 subthread as uncluttered as possible, directing users to this thread in order to discuss about the issue.

    Please do not try to assume anything. We do know that other phones have suffered from this fault and we have no favoritism for a particular device.

    I can't speak for everyone but my fiance has the s6 edge + and no issues with battery and i still have my note5 with no issues with battery.

    I'm curious to see what Samsung's response is. I'm staying with the note unless they axe it. Perhaps they will offer some incentive to keep customers. I'd take a free S7E if the N7 gets cancelled. Might seem crazy but wouldn't be surprised if they do it.

    Which is why I got the 64GB Note 5. Space has not been a problem for me in the six months I have owned mine. I don't do cloud either on any phone I have and never will.
    Key point is you 64gb is only 45gb free to the user. My apps alone are near that and that leaves zero for my tunes, pics, videos and game roms. 256gb card FTW.

    I'll keep my premium feel thank you very much. AND safe, secure batteries. If I'm paying $500- $800 for a phone I want everything or damn close to it.

    Please feel free to email me the details of what your accusations here are. As you're aware, this post of yours also violates forum rules, however I'm going to leave it here hoping that you'll reach out to help me to assist you in getting this resolved for you.

    I can be reached at Matt.Luciano@mobilenations.com and if you'd like to copy in our Community Director, James@mobilenations.com.

    Pretty close to half of our team has or had a Note 7 and we have a lathe variety of devices and we spend way too much time debating points about them amongst ourselves and within the forums. Literally none of us are being paid to do anything with any devices, let alone to go on witch hunts, etc. But I'd like details on what's driving that perception so that I can investigate and determine if we need to modify something, or explain it better or whatever else.

    As I see all these posts and countless new threads, I wonder something. Why are people so willing to take unknown people's words and get rid of their phones? Many of the previous stories have already been proven false, so what's the deal? Why not at least wait until Samsung gives an official statement? The internet and news hungry media has really changed things in my opinion. I was a mechanic at a dealership before and people barely cared about actual life threatening safety recalls, but this phone thing has people feeling like their actually carrying a bomb in their pockets.

    I am hoping for this as well for the reasons you stated but at the same time I need some closure soon. Like a lot of people here, I travel a lot for work and the first recall happened while I was away. Now I am traveling in 2 weeks again and it looks like this might happen all around the same time. I don't want to part with my Note7 but I need some stability at this point regardless of the outcome. That comment that they have halted production "temporarily" would seem to mean that they haven't given up on it yet. I'll be all over the news tomorrow or Tuesday to see what is going on. I do have a GS7e to fall back on but please no... I have to take that in to replace due to an apparent swollen battery and I was hoping to do it later.
