    You can put all the fancy features you want on a phone, but if the phone is dead because of a small battery they don't do you any good. The battery on my S7E is pathetic and I can't wait to get rid of this phone because of it. Loved my N7! The next phones better have a huge battery with efficient use of it.
    You mean the battery life of N7 is much better than S7E?

    In my case by about a factor of 2.

    Unfortunately, other users of the Note7 didn't have your experience. Some users of the S7E have better battery life than their Note7. It seems all phones aren't created equal.

    Well, in my case my phone was apparently created sucky. It's even sensitive and will only wirelessly charge with the charger plugged into certain outlets. Very odd. It's a nice functioning phone, but I can't wait to get rid of it because the battery sucks so much. Samsung/Verizon better give us N7 people some sort of a deal to get an early out on these phones that we were forced into since we are going to be farther out from our year contract of paying monthly.

    A battery that doesn't explode. That's all I care about.

    I almost forgot about that. Samsung did say something about previous Note7 owners getting some kind of incentive, correct? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Why just Korea. Everyone that purchased that Note 7 was affected and that's pretty much world wide

    Not sure, that was all that was mentioned in the announcement but they could change it.

    It's their home country so they can easily give any incentive they want. In other countries they would need to go through the carriers and all that.

    I have no doubt Verizon would try and charge us all they can for any upgrades.

    Right, they'd be like, oh you had a Note 7? We're charging you extra to upgrade for the inconvenience that WE suffered lol

    Hope they offer a phone without the curved screen.
    Tired of the curved screen.

    As much as I like Samsung and they charging pad.
    I could leave Samsung on the curved screen and Samsung Pay app on my phone.

    Oh boy... Fire at Samsung SDI China plant caused by faulty batteries.

    Hope they weren't working on the S8 batteries.

    The fire was in the waste depository, not the actual production line.

    I don't know why i pay attention to BGR, probably because it shows up in my Google cards, but the latest headline bothers me. It reads something like.

    "Why the Note 7 disaster is forcing Samsung to make the S8 to be worse".

    Obviously it's a click bait headline, but even the logic behind it is questionable. So the batteries are going to be smaller. Somewhere around the ballpark of 3,000 and 3,300 mAh in think (may be slightly higher). But my point is, how about we just wait and see how efficient it is?

    Why must BGR write it off as worse? How about, "How the Note 7 disaster forced Samsung to set a higher standard in terms of safety and efficiency on the S8".

    BGR is basically the National Enquirer of tech news. They have as close to 0% journalistic integrity as you can get without being a comic book.

    I agree that BGR sucks. I do think anything less than this year is going to be worse or maybe the same if these rumors are true. Samsung is always gonna say it's optimized. They said that crap with the S6, and you see the next year they upped the battery big time because it just wasn't good enough. The reality is, Android just needs big batteries. If they would stop worrying about how thin these devices are, we can still have big batteries AND not worry about explosions.

    4000 mAh and at least 128 of memory.

    For people who use their phones for work, we need at least 10-12 hours of hard use battery life.

    I bet making the phone 0.5-1mm thicker would allow a decent amount larger battery.
