    Pre-ordered the Note 7 the moment it was up for pre-order.

    I'll continue to do the same for the promotional offers. Hope this debacle also shines some light on the importance of good QC.
    We have all been saying this, including me. I'm starting to think the fire issue is not a faulty component but some inherent design flaw. That when you use the phone under a particular set of circumstances, some stray current/voltage spike is generated. Samsung's engineers have not been able to recreate it and make a Note 7 catch fire.

    Unfortunately, this is a lot harder to rectify than just a faulty component.

    As I mention before for the phone preorder is pretty much unknown for me but for accessories for the device.... I probably wont preorder those before I get the device...

    I have never pre-ordered any phone. I don't change phones every year, so waiting a few months seems to be the sensible thing to do, given the possibility of a either hardware or software problems with a new product. Even if there aren't, I would imagine there is more consistent quality once a phone has been in production a while and there would be less of a chance in getting a defective unit.

    In addition, it gives me a chance to hear from users about potential issues or limitations with a new phone. Finally, while there are some accessories available at release time for a new phone, more are available to select from if you wait.

    I would have had to wait until Nov to get the Note5 64 gig. I was in store Monday and got the 32 gig. Verizon told me I can order it but I now have it all set up and screen protector. I will just utilize cloud but am good. They are low on the 5 in my store and can only order the 64 gig. I have had since Monday. Nice phone so can say am happy until the next big one comes out.

    I've preordered iPhones many times (better than standing in line) and this is the only bad experience I've had doing it so I would preorder again. This is unprecedented.
