    As a note 7 owner whom has remained loyal to Samsung throughout this whole ordeal, I feel that Samsung could do much better to compensate the customers who pay the most for a premium device. Like many of you, I don't want to give up my note 7 and all other offerings don't hold much of a candle to this device.

    To make me happy Samsung should do exactly this:

    "We recognize our failure and wish to keep our loyal Note customers happy. We will now offer a note 5 free of charge to previous note 7 owners."
    A note 5 should be offered for our trouble if Samsung cares anything about keeping note owners happy. Then and only then will I give up my note 7 (which is a liability for them as long as it is in my possession)

    They're already losing a huge amount of money with this recall (unless they have great recall coverage on their insurance policy). Giving free devices to everyone would only put them further in the hole.

    Nah, should be the device of the user's choice for those that already have the Note 5 (hint: I do).

    They should loose more money and write it off if they really want to keep customers happy. One recall.. fine I can accept that but 2 recalls?
    Time is money and most of use have wasted a lot of time just trying to get a note 7

    Offer people who actually bought the Note 7, a discount or a preferred trade in on the next Note or Note type device. Maybe $200-$300 loyalty discount on the next Galaxy with a stylus.

    Agree. They are already losing millions (billions?), they can spend a bit to offer Note 5's to those of us that actually went through the hoops with the first recall so that we can purchase their next flagship when its available. Then put us first in line for pre-ordering. Or even make it a $100 deposit that is applied to the purchase of new flagship with acceptance of the Note 5 "loaner". They give us a free loaner if we agree to stay loyal and give them another chance. Grasping at straws here.....

    Seems everyone wants something now days. How about they take back the dangerous phone and provide everyone a free BMW? Would that be even better? I think asking for this and that plus double and triple taking the promos along with everything else is enough.

    As for it being a liability as long as its in your possession? In a court of law, part of the facts would be:
    -Did the company attempt to mitigate the damage? YES
    -Was the damaged party aware of the possible damages? YES
    -Did the damaged party do anything to mitigate the damage? NO
    -Was the company 100% at fault? NO

    If you keep the device, knowing the possible ramifications, you are not mitigating any of the damage and that would be on you, not samsung

    Only acceptable option: 1. They give everyone a full refund of anything and everything they paid into this device. 2 Everyone returns the equipment to Samsung. 3. Nothing else.

    Somewhere in the ballpark of a $15 billion write down

    I wonder what the match is on lost customers vs. giving stuff away.

    For example, I have switched over to a Pixel XL, which means I am not likely to come back for the Note 8. Because of that, they have lost a heavy Samsung Pay user indefinitely, a Gear VR content purchaser, and a person increasing their presence in the Samsung ecosystem. I am likely to buy a new TV in the near future. Samsung would have been the only choice if I still used their phone, now it will be a choice. Finally, I may or may not continue to use S-Health once my Pixel arrives.

    Based on that usage profile, I am curious as to my yearly value to Samsung. That would go a long way to determining what they should have offered me to stay. I would have been happy with a refurb S7E for use until the S8 or N8 arrived. I just did not want to buy a S7E, because I am on a 2 year contract cycle through work.

    As it is, I am getting excited about the Pixel arrival. Serious deja vu with the Note 7, wondering when the Pixel will ship for arrival. Am I going to get it early???

    Personally, as a Note 7 owner, I feel many of us went through the ringer with this phone. This has not been an easy process and we have had our hearts and souls invested in this device. Maybe this might sound dumb to some, but many of us feel this way. Besides emotional stress and strain, it has been a big inconvenience as well. Besides the time and effort in ordering phones, returning phones and dealing with bill credits, I will (as most Note 7 owners) be completing the third customization of a phone in two months. This, for me, is a day project.

    I do feel Samsung owes Note 7 owners more than an apology, which I do not even think it has actually done. What I think is fair, for the inconvenience alone, is some sort of cash rebate, at least $100-$150, on a future Samsung device to each person who owned a Note 7.

    The world owes me nothing, but a sincere gesture by Samsung would go a long way.

    We can only hope it ships earlier than they expect... I would love to play around with that phone right now ^_^.

    Samsung's botched N7 has caused a lot of people to sell perfectly good phones in order to move to the N7. Some even traded in their old devices for way less than what buying the same device again will cost.. People got burnt on this (no pun) and it's sad... A person shouldn't have to dish out money for something they really don't/didn't want to begin with...
    If I wanted a N5, then I would've bought one when it was launched and the same goes for the S7edge....
    I'm fortunate enough to still have my old N3 and a iPhone 6 to fall back on but many people don't.

    If the could find a way to do as someone suggested and offer a credit redeemable for next year's big not called a note but is really a note device and to spread the costs of that out between Q1 and Q2 so that it doesn't further add to their Q4 2016 write down and their Q3 earnings from the big not called a note but is really a note device, I could see that being more interesting - but when dealing with a $15 billion ish write down this quarter and having done $2 billion last quarter, I have to imagine that further losses this quarter is going to make a few people morph into hulk smash mode.

    Full refund for the phone.

    Full refund for accessories specific to the Note 7 (depending where you bought them).

    And a $25 gift card, in-store credit, in-store accessory credit, or bill credit at certain carriers if you exchange a Note 7 for another Samsung device.

    Sounds like that's enough to me and if it isn't, make sure your next phone isn't a Samsung.

    I told my wife last night that I could not believe how bummed I am about giving up my N7. There are just so many things that I really like about it that won't be replaced.

    I would like to see a rebate ($150?) on the Note 5 with maybe a software update to what was on the Note 7. They haven't been selling many of the 5 anyway I imagine.
