    I mean look at the stories of the iphone as well.

    //////////////////////////ABC 30 reported that Estrada only had her phone three months. Apple is giving her a free replacement for the iPhone 6 Plus.

    This is the second iPhone explosion in a week after a man on the East Coast says the same model started burning in his back pocket before it blew up. Apple is looking into both cases.

    Samsung has had similar problems with the Note 7, prompting a nationwide recall.//////////////////////////////////////////////////

    But there is no thread saying all apple phones need to be recalled? I understand there might be a issue with the New replacement Note 7 in a few cases BUT why does apple get to just give them a new phone?

    Also it seems there is a LOT of Apple trolls on here as well but why does apple get a free pass on burning up phones?

    Because it's not a few dozen in relatively short period of time. The student admitted that he cracked the phone before the fire (it's looking very likely that he damaged the phone by constantly sitting on it -- after all he did have it in his back pocket when it caught on fire)

    What scares me more is no support or updates because of all the bad press. That's the only reason I'm not sure if I should keep it

    Apple paid the media off. Next time Samsung needs to remember to do that.

    Now for the serious people, I don't know that Apple paid the media off, but makes sense

    While I am more than fully aware that other devices with lithium batteries have ignited in the past, Minnesota pretty much sealed it for me.

    The Note 7 is done.

    I'm waiting for official word from Samsung, but I'm very much considering a switch.

    Very disappointing, especially since this has been such a pleasure to use.

    I am resisting looking into what to switch to. Have had Apple, booooooring. It would be an Android, just don't know which one.

    Another thing, if I have to turn this one in, i.e. the 2nd "fixed" one, then I want my "upgrade" erased. Just like it didn't happen.

    If true those workers need to be punished. Samsung can ill afford something like this happening getting out. Seriously, at this point Samsung needs to throw in the towel.

    The carriers would be complete fools to support this phone. It's already distracting from their chief goal: selling phones and recurring revenue plans. For them, that's all that matters. If their money is to be messed up, they don't need it to be the result of device manufacturers, no matter how large and successful in the past.

    The Nicolasville guy had me right up until he wouldn't let Samsung have the phone to investigate. Mmm, why not? I am not saying it may not have happened, but that is a big red flag to me.

    You do not, I repeat, DO NOT try to downplay a safety issue and attempt to cover it up.

    At that point, Samsung would be no better than Volkswagen.

    I'd like to see the actual text to be sure, though.

    Exactly... you have so many people here ready to accuse the VICTIMS here of trickery... how about being the VICTIM and you have a BIG SAMSUNG rush over ASAP and say, "Let us hold the phone." and luckily he didn't cause from that text who knows where that phone would have disappeared and we were lucky to see the news article. They wanted that guy in China's phone and he refused too and went to the press.

    Why would he?

    I have officially given up on the Note 7; after the recall I decided to wait for the Pixel announcement before deciding to re-buy the Note 7. Well the Pixel was a disappointment, and now the replacement Note 7s are apparently still plagued with bad batteries.

    I got tired of looking for a phone (couldn't do the S7 or the S7 edge as I hate their version of TouchWiz) so I just bought an HTC 10. It was competitive at $550.

    Now I can stop lurking phone forums everyday and get on with my life.
