    I was just wondering because of this unprecedented product failure, are any of you sworn off from pre ordering again?

    In my case, I am actually very confident that Samsung will learn their lessons and focus on quality control. If you think about, can you imagine if a 2nd Samsung phone faces this same crisis? In that case, you could genuinely say that it would ruin Samsung's mobile business. And Samsung knows it.

    For these reasons, I would pre order with confidence. But I can understand if others wouldn't. So what say you?

    Still got a kick *** gear fit 2 out of the pre order and got a chance to atleast try the latest phone and fall in love with the design and features. No regrets here!

    Those of us who pre ordered got the best experience. I got a $150 gift card from Sam's Club and a 256gb sd card from Samsung. And I got to experience the best phone of they year. I have no complaints except I probably won't be able to keep this phone. I empathize with Samsung on this and will still by their products in the future. Preordering this phone had absolutely no negative affects in my opinion.

    That doesn't guarantee that no Samsung phone in the future will ever have a problem ever again.

    Never preorder. Don't ride the hype train. At least wait for the reviews to come out before making a purchasing decision. I will admit that the Note case is unprecedented and will likely never occur again but that doesn't mean there aren't failing points in other areas.

    I have never pre-ordered a phone - I just walk into the store on release day and buy one.

    Too many horror stories from people who pre-ordered and end up getting their phones after everyone else. What's the point of that?

    I have never pre ordered a phone, just to get the free goodies either. I wait for the reviews and those of the actual users. Then I buy the phone to keep for two, or three plus years.

    Many of the Note 7 pre order buyers got 'burnt' by the failed design. I watched the commotion and excitement of the pre order only to watch the process go down in flames. I feel for the buyers!

    I think many will watch Samsung like a hawk from now on. The company let down the public.

    I remember when I first got the Nexus 5 the initial batch of them had smaller speaker grills. Google fixed this afterwards by making them a bit bigger.

    It wasn't really a defect but it's my way of relating to it.

    I never did pre order before but that pre-order bonus made me =D lol... back when I picked up a 5s to upgrade from a HTC EVO it was either a week or a month after it was release .... I think cant remember =P. I just went in and ask about w/e model in 64gb and went got it. So unless there a enticing preorder bonus I wont preorder normally

    N7 was my first and last preorder. Even tho I made out good with the freebies, I will never preorder again. Next time, I'll wait till the device in question has been out for a month or 2, and read reviews before pulling the trigger.

    It's a good question the OP poses. I have to admit I am a little gun shy now about pre-ordering . Buying in the first day/week of availability also has the same ramifications of not knowing user experiences, so the question about waiting would apply to the folks who bought day 1 or week 1 as well..

    I have usually ordered early, recently I started pre-ordering. I certainly don't "need" to pre-order or have everything Day 1 - but the urge is still there, right? :-) This event may cause me to have a little more restraint and wait it out. Now, keep in mind that as I write this, I have pre-ordered the Pixel XL, so take this with a grain of salt :-)

    It depends on the preorder deals. But I might hesitate on pre buying- if that's a word-accesories for the phone.

    Pre-Ordering didn't make my phone at risk of catching fire. That would be Samsung's fault. Hundreds of devices have gone through pre-orders with no issues. I don't see the correlation. Unless you're just saying if we hadn't pre-ordered, we would have been bystanders observing this whole deal, but even if I didn't pre-order I would have been in the store on 8/19 to pick it up.

    The note 7 was the first preorder I've done. I usually wait a couple months before getting new phones. After this experience, I don't think I will.

    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.

    I doubt I will, but if I do I'm staying away from the forums! This whole experience was a drama filled hassle here lol. I'm sure it happens every major release, but I've never seen so much bad behavior on any of the Mobile Nations sites as I have in the Note 7 forums. Starting from the pre-order phase all the way up to the untimely cancellation, the Mods had their hands full.

    Forum rant aside, I just don't see the advantage of doing it.

    1. Most Android phones don't have Apple's self imposed over-hyped demand increasing shady launch day supply shortages, and are available on launch day at any of the gabillion T-Mobile stores around my town.

    2. Manufacturer spifs and incentives are available for at least a couple weeks after launch so there's no advantage there

    3. The stress and anxiety of 'will I get mine early? Hey, how come yours came and mine didn't and I ordered 34 seconds before you???' is ridiculous

    4. I'm too old for this [removed] lol
