    I've been following all of the news reports of what Samsung is going to say on Sunday, and it just keeps bothering me: if the batteries were not the right size to fit the space (per WSJ) why not release the GN7 with new batteries? That would be far better than waiting another 8-9 months for whatever the GN8 brings, and NO, the GN7 nor my iPhone 7+, are NOT adequate replacements for the GN7.

    From what I've heard that's not the only issue. It's the battery capacity wasn't right for the battery size/shape, the phone body wasn't able to accommodate the battery volume properly, the software was not properly identifying and reacting to heat related anomalies and something else I didn't understand at all. It sounds like it was an array of issues, and simply releasing phones with different batteries didn't work (that was the first recall/exchange). They'd have to redesign a lot, at further expense, would get very few sales and take this $20 billion loss probably into the $30-40 billion area as soon as some yahoo with a grudge abused one and made it burn for YouTube.

    Because the Note 7 Name is ruined for now. People will always associate it with fire or explosive battery. The phone was a great phone. I had to give mine up because of work and travel. Will get an Note 8 when it is released.

    Easy -- they tried that and still failed. People won't trust the product as much and the name is tarnished. It is better for them to call it a mess up and come out with something new that won't have that "bad karma" with it.

    Also, none of these reports so far are the OFFICIAL findings, which we will find out on January 23rd. So until then, it's still speculation what reason(s) caused the Note 7 to burn up
    That and as mentioned, it would take a re-tooling of the device (and pull engineers off the Note 8 if there will be one) to reissue it. And the perception of the device is pretty low, except by those that follow and use the Note series and refuse to give up on it (further fueling the bad news about it).

    Samsung is already $20 billion into the worst phone of 2016 with zero revenue to offset it. They'd be inanely moronic to spend a single cent more on it.

    I would still get the note 8 if it come out. I have a sh*t load of samsung devices and never had any issues with them. Im mad at the situation and how samsung handled it but I'll still get the note since no other company is eve trying to make anything comparable. The stylo doesnt even come close. The htc pocket pc were better then what the stylo is now and those phones are almost 10yrs old.

    Well, here's hoping they establish a refurb market for the Note 7 - it would be such a waste to fill a landfill with millions of Note 7 devices.

    They'll be able to recycle most of the materials.

    Even if you were to set aside issues relating to components that caused the problem, there are the negative perceptions that are now connected to the N7, also after the travel bans that have been placed on the N7 it would be a nightmare to deal with, The best path is to recycle what they can and move forward. it's very near to the N8 coming out it would be kind of pointless now.. (I still loved the N7 tho).. This is just my humble opinion tho..

    Cheers

    I think moving on with a new name and device altogether is a smart move for Samsung. Re-releasing the Note 7 with tweaks might not be enough to convince people that it will charge and work/function accordingly.

    What is this I keep hearing that Samsung found out the main problem with the Note 7 was the battery.
    And they are talking about putting new batteries in the Note 7 and bringing them back on the market ?

    They are suppose to release the Galaxy S8 first.

    Then they are gonna re release the Note 7.

    Anybody else heard anything about this.

    No they wanted them all back to get them out of the hands of the people who had them to avoid being liable for injuries. And to test them to see what went wrong. They are not coming back. S models are released in the spring. Note models in the fall. The next note is a ways away

    Word has it they have millions of Note 7. All they need is a Battery.
    And Samsung has good batteries to put in them.
    And Samsung is talking about selling the Millions of Note 7's that there is nothing wrong with.

    The note 7 is done, never coming back out. Could they use the design for a future phone? Maybe. But despite what you keep hearing, they will never bring the note 7 out ever again. As much as we all want to get it back, we have to face the music, it's done.

    Even if Samsung were to re-release refurbished Note 7s, the FAA would never allow them back on airplanes. So just get over it.

    Looks like you might be wrong, doesn't look like US but it appears they are bringing it back by June to other countries. At least according to all new rumors that came out just now

    So this is interesting, Likely not something anyone would gain anything from in any country that the N7 was banned/recalled but at least they will will not go completely to waste.
