    I never heard of Swappa. Is the site any good? Better then E Bay?
    For sellers it's much much much better than Ebay. I still buy off both, but only sale my phones on Swappa now.

    I would agree with you.

    Still, what it does show is that in these days of instant mass media they can't slip up on quality control anymore. Especially not makers of mass media devices ... .

    Here is my issue I got the Gear Fit with my OG N7 then I got the Gear VR with my Loaner S7E then got the 256gb SD card with my N7v2. I will be returning N7v2 but for what if I get the V20 the Gear Vr is useless if I go back to N5 the SD card is useless which leaves withe the S7E which I was not fond of for the 10 days I used it. I assume there are a few others out there that maxed their promotions and and my have the same dilemma as myself should I go with the V20 or give the S7E another chance.

    Really? Telling us to go power down the phone, go get another one and we will give you $25??? I am sorry that is not good.
    Now I have go get another phone, I had one that was almost paid off so it's like restarting payments for the same phone. That I would've almost been done with. I have jump from TMobile. I don't want the S7 Edge, never wanted the stupid thing. LG V20 doesn't look that great, plus I had an LG awhile back, that phone was a nightmare. The google Pixel XL, is it even going to work on TMobile? Yes, I understand that they didn't willingly put a bad phone out, but to me they aren't even trying to do any type of resolution to this, other than return the phone.
    I dunno, I'll look for something over the weekend. I am actually tired of the Mobile world all together.
    That's why I bought an iPhone 7. Not the best but I can just use it and not think about it. Had been wanting the Note 7 but gave up..

    I used the regular S7 as a loaner, the screen is smaller but overall the phone was very nice to use. I enjoy the bigger screen so I think I'll go for the S7 Edge and get a second SD card.

    Well, the only reasonable solution imo. Bury this flawed phone and start fresh.

    No matter what they do, it would continue to bite them in the proverbial and customer confidence in the brand would be further damaged.

    Samsung share prices have plummeted by 11 billion!

    Apple shares are increasing.

    All I want to know is where can I buy Samsung stock? Gotta call my broker today. $$$$

    Plus Carriers are working on deactivating all imei on all Note 7, so Note 7 will be brainless, for safety that will make everyone turn in the Note 7.

    At this point this was the right move by Samsung. They need to move on from the N7

    I have a Gear S2 platinum, Gear fit 1, Gear VR and 256gb sd card... I'm not switching over to a S7edge and being stuck with payments on a phone I don't want. No matter how much "Samsung use only" accessories I own.... I'm not going back to my N3 after having experienced the N7.... I'll put all my Sammy accessories back in their boxes and wait until whatever they call the new phone with the S-pen comes out next year....
    I've never used a iPhone in my life but the daughter upgraded from her iPhone 6 to the 7.. So I'm just going to pop my sim card into the iPhone 6 and wait for Samsung to get their stuff together... Definitely won't be preordering the Sammy phone... I'll wait a month like someone on the forum suggested....

    note 5 lol
    I'm hanging onto my note 5 a few more weeks, skipping the Edge and likely going V20 or Pixel XL. Probably the Pixel since it'll have unmolested Android.

    It actually have some positives sides, no one will forget it in the nearby future, their S8 must be PERFECT and bring lot of new functions to be even looked at, they will test it much much better.

    While the Note is speical, there are many phones that can offer u great alternative- LG V20, S7E, 1+3, Mate 8 and soon 9, Axon 7, might be even zenfone 3 deluxe...

    I hope the next note will do everything right too.
    The reason this really burns me (no pun intended) is that I felt this would be the last year of a classic-looking Note.
    Signs are pointing to a Bezel-free screen and some other crap, not to mention a massive paradigm shift in the next year of Samsung phones.

    i.e. another 2015 year. I skipped an upgrade that year because Samsung's move to make an "iPhone", with no expandable storage, weak battery, and fragile "premium" build was just a disappointment. This year they mostly made good on the failures of the year prior.

    Sucks because I really do like the Edge screen, and everything else on the Note 7.

    Torn on whether I should take my chances with a super-cheap Note 4 (which I've heard is not great on Marshmallow), or go with an unlocked S7 Edge (which has less internal storage). Leery of spending full-price on a LG V20, as I tired of the V10 real quick after the Marshmallow update and the battery life going to toilet. Even though you can get one of those unlocked.

    what didn't you like about the Edge? It is so similar to N7...I don't understand all those saying they didn't like as a loaner.

    Or someone failed Samsung. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the result of sabotage, either internally or somewhere in the factory lines.
    Stop living in denial dude. Just accept that the Note 7 and samsung failed miserably in this one.

    What a shame. I moved on to the iPhone 7 Plus after the first recall, but was really disappointed when I had to send my Note back. It really was a great phone. I wonder what implications this will have on the Note line going forward. Could Samsung kill off the Note line for good? I guess only time will tell.

    It is a shame that they got rid of the Note 7, which was perhaps the best phone in the market, however the battery explosive fiasco, Apple patent law suit and the consumer impatience for the Nougat update determines that Samsung has far too much on their hand, rendering them unable to proceed with improving the device. Knowing it has already received a lot of negative publicity, so with all the scaremongering, the device wouldn't regain its place in the market. Guess I got to keep my S6 too.
    How could it have being the best phone on the market with such dangerous and mechanical issues? U guys are unbelievable

    This is sad news. I returned my original Note 7 a while ago. I always thought that eventually I would get a unlocked one on Amazon but that's not the case. It was a great designed phone, probably the best I've had design-wise. I hope they can bounce back from this.

    It's a shame but I'll be keeping mine. I'm sure at some point I'll be able to install a ROM if carriers don't bother with updates. At worst I'll wait for the successor sometime late next year or I'll go the S8 if it suits my needs.
    You think there will be developers creating roms for this now? I would say that many are returning their devices, and the user base would be so small that I doubt anyone will spend much time developing for it. You are stuck with essentially a fancy engineering sample.

    I'm kind of in the same boat. I'm lucky enough to still have my BlackBerry Passport, but I'm taking a huge functionality loss as well, since there was more I could do with the Note 7, than I can with my Passport, and that mostly due to apps.

    I'm going to return all of my wireless chargers along with the device. I don't want to pay for things I have no use for. My Gear VR (which was free) will have to sit a long with the other USB-C adapters and cables I just got from Samsung, but I hope to be able to keep and use them when the next Note device comes out, since I don't have the packaging and I ordered them from Samsung directly. My 256 SD (also free, and should be here some time this week) card will either sit until next year, or possibly get used in my DSLR until then.
