    Just saw that a guy in us exchanged the note 7 for a s7 edge and within 2 weeks of normal use it exploded.

    Could this be real where Samsung has major issues or something seriously is wrong where someone is trying to sabotage Samsung?
    Thoughts?
    Will you be scared of your s7 edge ?

    I wonder if they are trying to rush s7 edges to the market to replace the Note 7.

    The S7 Edge has been out how long now?

    {Why do I find this thread insulting and kind off National Enquirer rappie? }

    All smartphones, in fact, are subject to possible overheating troubles under the right conditions. That’s due to their use of Lithium-ion batteries that can prove unstable if they’re running too hot.

    It is possible through rushing may cause things to slip through the quality check however since this phone has been made for a while now I thought design,logistics, etc should be place. But I do agree that rushing the new s7 edge to replenish could result in issues. So that makes me wonder about the blue s7 edge they are making too.

    I'm not concerned about the Note 7 either. Gonna be funny when Samsung announces the reason for the N7 failure and it's not the battery but was something that could be fixed with a software update.... Alas to dang late now.

    I am not concerned about my s7 edge either and I was patient enough like many to go through note 7 recalls twice. I'm simply just posting what I came across today as an FYI.. not trying to insult anyone.

    Wow this is quite scary indeed. I have a regular s7 and I'm quite concerned in all honesty, I'm starting to not trust Samsung. Might as well trade in for a LG or something right..

    I really think sam users should start to get worried about this. This was a wakeup call for me. I mean look let's be honest here... Personally, myself I love my S7 but I have kids that play on it and god forbid if anything happens during "play" time it could have serious life threatening dangers... Of course after reading this I won't allow my phone to be touched by anyone and will keep it in a safe area until I can pickup a new device or possibly trade in for another brand that doesn't have a history of blowing up...

    You sound stressed. You should absolutely walk away. Myself, I'm not worried.

    Hey, you know what? We've all got to do what's best for our situations. I can't blame anyone for having enough of this weird Samsung saga. There's no way they come out of this without losing some longtime fans.

    For me this doesn't feel the same, far more islolated, and the damage to the phone doesn't even look the same. It looks more like it's been run over by someone's car. lol

    I hope the edge doesn't get recalled. Really enjoy the phone. Not as much as I was crazy about the Note 7 but still like it a lot.

    Yeah recall on edge would be bad. At that point no one will trust Samsung since we stuck with them and changed our note 7 for edge. I don't charge overnight ever since 1st note 7 had blown up back in end of August - early September.
    Hope this is a one off incident but there have been 2 cases prior to this...1 was that construction worker and another was the teacher in the cafe. Sigh.

    Wow! Some people scare easily!
    Samsung has sold about 30 million S7/S7 Edges. The percent that have exploded is EXTREMELY small. Given the data, there is no rationale basis to conclude the phones are any less safe than other phones. Maybe this article:

    Frequency illusion and exploding Samsung phones | Android Central

    ...explains some people's fear.

    I believe Samsung would absolutely have to be forced to due a recall, after the N7 mess, I can't see them jumping in on yet another flagship recall voluntarily...

  21. merlinskw's Avatar
    The same could have been said with the Note7, huge amount went out and only a small percentage had catastrophic failure. Kind of a pattern, don't look but there seems to be a pink elephant in the room with Samsung...

    At this point, the S7 Edge is on equal footing with the iPhone 6/iPhone 7 in terms of exploding phones.

    Add in the fact that there will be people out there destroying their phones trying to get money out of Samsung, and I'm not convinced this is anything to worry about.

    I hope you're right Throttle Johnny....its also an older phone now, media probably will not attack the S7edge as viciously as they did the Note7 because it's kinda yesterday's news..

    We all want to know the definitive cause of the flaming N7's, so it can be definitively fixed.

    So you feel always on display caused the fire along with dropping phone? So then s7 edge is risk too because we just got software update for always on display
