If Samsung themselves didn't come out with attack ads, smere campagins in the past, this wouldn't have happened to them. It's karma, as mentioned, since #bendgate was invented by Samsung in hopes of debranding apple, in the past, this is a karmic effect on Samsung. Not to mention, going out and insulting Apple users themselves, what goes around comes around.
Now some people are saying it's apple that is dictating this????? this legitment stuff, Samsung needs to owe up to it, and do a better quality control on test their products.
sammysung, 12 Oct 2016HELLLLOOOO ???? What about us who bought the phone from samsung.com ? It took a month to get t... moreyour screwed.
Welcome to Samsungs' customer service. Have fun man, their service sucks and always did.
This was supposed to be the Galaxy Note6. By skipping the devil number, this "Note7" became cursed from the fires of hell and by an Apple-biased media firestorm.
With Samsung and LG making too many badly timed mistakes, I know am forced to get an iPhone specifically the SE which ironically offers the best value at half the cost. Surprising coming from Apple. I got to live with the 1.2MP front camera but the space gray does look better than the matte black 7 which still smudges. Doesn't have a camera hump and looks to be the final iPhone with headphone jack. Also considering a Xiaomi Redmi 3 Prime for $160.
What a sham from Shamesung. But anyhoo, $17B in losses in something they can handle. If this was HTC, they would be completely wiped out and probably wouldn't announce anything and sweep it under the rug. People should check out that ColdFusion video on YouTube about Samsung. They are much bigger than you assume. They don't just make phones, TVs, and appliances. Samsung just needs to learn from their mistakes. Maybe layoff the 4K displays, metal frames with generate heat, fast SoC, and bring back removable battery.
If you think about, it isn't that sad of a story. We learn more from failures than successes. I was actually more sad when the Sega Dreamcast and webOS died. This is actually a blessing in disguise for Samsung and for all consumers for the future. Instead of rushing phones, packing so much heat with QHD displays, hot SoC, metal frames, VR, and super fast charging, maybe we need to reevaluate what we want from phones and what devices Samsung should make for us.
Sometimes we all need to be careful what we wish for. A 1-2 second difference opening apps is no big deal to most people. Patience is probably more needed in tech for all of us.
Samsung Slave 1, 11 Oct 2016Sammy will be back for blood next year. Watch out HTC, Sony, Apple and LG. Laugh now and cry l... moreSo even more injuries next year?!? Why does Samsung want their users to bleed so badly?
That's a really sucky plan.
What if one like to keep using Samsung Note 7 from second batch, is it Samsung will force update Note 7 to stop working.
Zootopia, 12 Oct 2016from where did u know that, ifixit has no such info on their channelJoking.....
If I were them, I rather change NOTE4's design to note5/7-like design(stick with its circuit board design to avoid such electronic shorts). It was a successful batch of notes and note4 was the best Samsung phone in terms of note series line up back 2014-2015. That's my opinion though
HELLLLOOOO ???? What about us who bought the phone from samsung.com ? It took a month to get the replacement to me.
mihaidenis, 11 Oct 2016Everybody is talking about battery.
It is not the real problem.
Battery is fine.
It i... moreagreed till the 4th line XD
i also believe it's not a battery issue anymore, otherwise the second batch would've been just fine (unless Samsung didn't do anything really which would sux really bad but it's not likely)
the case approach is good too (and reasonable) but it can be numerous of things specially since the design is very similar to the old ones (even the S7 Edge) so minor changes equals burn?? i'm still waiting for an oficial statement from Samsung after the investigation is done to clarify a lot of doubts that i hope many people (as me) also have ^_^
I bought the phone to a friend and now he is on a 2 months trip to Europe what should i do
Everybody is talking about battery.
It is not the real problem.
Battery is fine.
It is confirmed by the second batch of
phones with replaced batteries witch caught fire.
The problem is a design flaw of the case.
In some circumstances at a mechanical stress (bend/pressure)it shorten the battery and/or motherboard.
When Samsung acknowledge that is beyond any fix (only by completely redesigning
the case/motherboard)they stop production.
All I can say is "you're the best" to head managers from the departments:Design/Test/QC.
Which manage to f**k-up in such a way
that is beyond repair.
I-fixit will be acquired by Samsung soon
because they notice the screw witch goes thru battery into the motherboard.
Shamesung short story...
I-fixit...oh no...still fire....stop production....stop....stop
mir, 11 Oct 2016Not with their cheaply made devices, the won't!So That's why their number one in Android? Nice try, Doctor Nefario. Korea never lose.
Sammy will be back for blood next year. Watch out HTC, Sony, Apple and LG. Laugh now and cry later. Samsung for life!!!
I don't like any Samsung product, but this is pity really.
XZ or V20 as replacement are a good choice, if not iPhone 7.
Haha this is what you get for being oversmart and skipping note 6 never liked this unsymmetrical and childish approach.Samsung deserved it.
Exchange it for a Moto Z smartphone or you can also go for the Google pixel smartphones.
