    To be fair, if my phone was hot, I would remove the case if I had one one it, then fan the phone for a bit before placing it in my bag[.]
    I wouldn't--especially if the phone is too hot to hold comfortably, and I'm riding in an elevator, and have no place to put the phone while fanning, and nothing to fan it with anyway.

    Samsung provides safety and care instructions for the phone, and nowhere do they suggest ever fanning it or removing a case or refraining from putting it in a bag, under any circumstances.

    When my phone gets hot (hasn't happened yet with the Note9), I rely on its circuitry to slow it down or shut it off long before the heat becomes dangerous. That's the expected behavior of users and of the phone itself.

    I find it amazing that a suit was filed within days. So the lawyer was able to get a lab to look at it, get all the witnesses, and get her statements all in order and then quickly get it filed.
    The time it took to file really has no bearing on the actual merits of the lawsuit. Attorneys file quickly like this all the time here in NY and then amend at a later date when new information is obtained through discovery, etc.

    From what I'm reading, it seems like there's only this one incident. Everyone remember the Samsung Messages bug from the S9+ which would supposedly send pictures to random people (which even I thought I'd experienced)? It seemed to be a few isolated incidents, and wasn't deemed a systematic issue with the phone. I'm guessing the same thing is going to be the case here since it's been several days without reports of further incidents.
    Impossible to say without knowing the failure mode. It's unlikely to be the same cause as the Note 7 battery fires. Thus it's impossible to say how frequently such a fire might occur.

    It's just incredible they haven't learned anything from the previous battery fires.

    A removable battery is such a simple fix, now if they do a recall it will be expensive and inconvenient. And both of these will be passed onto the consumer.
    Removable batteries are history

    It more incredible if they put removable battery on Note 9 when there's no issue on Note 8 at all.

    Hopefully this alleged incident is isolated. I don't think Samsung's phone market share can successfully rebound from another Note 7 fiasco.

    A very not so simple fix. Changes so many parts of the engineering process that you're basically making a different phone. It changes dimensions, the battery size, heat management, processes required for water resistance, layout of components, audio quality, build materials, build quality, price, durability, etc. Many, many considerations, all to "solve" a problem that may not really exist and to introduce a bunch of other potential problems. IMO an OEM would be declaring it's insanity by trying to downgrade to removable batteries on modern flagship phones.

    If one more recall, Note series will definitely be killed. Even diehard Note fans won't be able to take it anymore.

    Not all of us

    It would for sure be a pain in the arse, but after the Note 7, I learned never to get rid of my Notes. I had nearly listed my N5 on ebay when the recall happened (at that time my husb had my N4 and my Mom my N3). Went back to my N5 til the N8 came.

    Husb and I got the N8, N5 went to Mom, N3 & 4 are backup. Both have been used at diff times by diff family members, just this year. I have no intention of letting go of my N8, so as pissed as I would be if there were a recall (not convinced about this case yet), I've literally got a family of Notes to soften the blow.

    Chill out folks. It's been a month since launch. Enjoy your Note 9 and stop getting paranoid about it exploding. I sure appreciates mine. Until we start hearing about multiple reports, nothing to see here.

    I tend to agree.

    Issue with removable batteries imo are if they are not correctly fitted back then water resistance maybe affected and people will buy non original batteries that can cause issues.

    Removable battery would affect Ingress Protection.
