In India also note 7 out of stock every where. I think samsung are in very serious problem to slove. Its very bad it happened to their top model and that too before few days of apple iphones launch. Some years before this battery problem happened to nokia mobiles but they publically published the problems in news papers and asked to get the replacement. Here the battery was BL 4C i think but it was only used in low end sets. But SAMSUNG problem is it happened to top note series with non removable battery design. Very bad... may be next note 8 comes with removable battery....
Add that VR is still in its infancy and deals 2K which isn't quite as sharp per eye, and the Note7 is becoming the skippable IT device of 2016. I lost interest in all phones this year and all hope for flagships.
At least with a console, it doesn't drastically drop in price after a year. A Note7 or iPhone 7 drops by half in a year. That's $400 I lose that I would rather keep to myself. Note7 might be the best smartphone for me but each glaring issues makes me realize it's not $650 better than other phones I could get at under $200 with stronger material used. Even if they drop to $100 from $200, that's nothing compared to a $400 drop after a year with a $800+ phone.
Proves time and time this planned obsolescence by all companies is a scam by hyped up publications and marketing. Flagship phones at over $200 are a scam, period. I don't care how pretty a smartphone is. I don't think most phones should cost more than $150 considering you get two years worth of use with them or less. If you are doing this now, then you love excess and burning money like people who are addicted to drugs or gambling. The Note7 is a ripoff like the HTC One M7 with that purple tinted camera issue that never went away. Don't be fooled by design.
Prit, 01 Sep 2016That's the reason strong Quality Assurance is required, I think Note 7 device came in hurry !!... more1 Gorilla glass 5 hard to break easy scratch you can protect by anti scattering film
2 you lie
4 Samsung is withdrawing the faulty batteries Galaxy Note7
They tried making a mind-blowing smartphone, they ended up making a battery-blowing smartphone. Close Enough.
This battery issue of the Samsung Note 7 is gonna affect Samsung big time, it's all about the negative psychology behind these exploding batteries, with the new Apple iPhone coming out soon, most people will abandon Samsung for Apple and then the other android hard core users will switch to other devices from LG, Sony and etc.
Why flagship Samsung nowadays have so much problem? But the low and mid doesn't have any issues. What is wrong with Samsung quality control?
Davood , 01 Sep 2016At least when you buy SONY you are sure that when you put it on a flat surface it's not the le... morehey i didnt say samsung is good...god know, its a health hazard now..all i said was sony was bad..and nokia is the only phone that actually cares about the camera to put a lip around it..you can't seriously think that a .3mm depression can save a camera lens..and anyway, whatever phone it is, users put a cover or case..so it doesn't matter..my n8 is running around naked btw...the new sony looks good though..hmm..
Herr Zeba, 01 Sep 2016I checked 2 carriers in Ireland and pre orders are gone. Phone is mysteriously "out of stock".... moreso u say u wanted this phone so bad and yet u tell the disadvantages that a user would tell? sounds fake to me specially since it's been told that the battery lasts as well as any other (to say the least)
now i don't own the phone so i can't tell about it but ur comment should be the same
Inspirael, 01 Sep 2016Its different departement. Samsung have its own Notebook, Camera etc As well as sony have ... moreVAIO isn't SONY anymore, they sold its PC business to the investment firm Japan Industrial Partners, now VAIO PC's are sold only in Japan, USA and Brazil through a partnership with the local manufacturer Positivo Informática.
I knew the Note 7 would be rubbish, sticking with my Note 4.
Samsung, has lost the plot and market cred.
lol, only few people buy this phone. Price is not good. Pay 800$ for a phone with faulty battery and blaming them to avoid possible customers from backing out of buying the handset.

Damn, I wanted this phone so much! Is it naive to believe Sammy will fix all the issues (lag, poor battery in that price range, s-pen getting stuck, etc) before Christmas?
LTE Guy, 01 Sep 2016For $850, I could buy a better and more powerful firework than Note 7.Oh stop with the cost factor. Sheesh. The 128GB Nexus 6P I bought was $750 when it was released. The iPhone 6S 64GB version is $850 retail. The cost of this handset is NOT out of line with the others. sheesh.
I just brought mine 2 days ago.. i am bit worried now... what is the cause of explosion ? is it because of battery over heating ? such case i wont play games or do extended video calls .
Samsung is Genius! They managed to fit a mini - bomb inside such a slim smartphone.
viveksubhash, 01 Sep 2016are you kidding?? sony makes the worst glass panels..they don't use gorilla glass or any other... moreAt least when you buy SONY you are sure that when you put it on a flat surface it's not the lens that touches the surface first (the sensitive part of a camera) and the pen won't stick in it's place and it won't make some injuries like a blasting bomb with it's blasting battery
