JordanBaby, 21 Feb 2017They can return it back to Samsung though, and maybe they'll refurbish it for free, or if not,... moreI think if they try to return the original Note7 back to the authorities, they can probably arrest them (LOL :P)! In some places, it was mandatory to return your Note7 and required by law.

BTW if this is true, then all those people... moreThey can return it back to Samsung though, and maybe they'll refurbish it for free, or if not, then maybe cost a little more (extra $50 maybe). As a Sony fan, Samsung's service is truly great

Who knows, maybe that's right, maybe not, so let's just see if they can. But for real, they should start this for $400 then I might consider getting one
"Return Of The Note7!" Makes for a good headline.
BTW if this is true, then all those people keeping the old Note7 as a collector's item will be disappointed! LOL! :P

Note 7 was officially priced at $1,000, which I suspect is the "original price" you're referring to. So even if they price this for 50% off, it would be roughly at $500, still too expensive for almost a year old phone. Given that the S8 or S8+, costing $1,000 at launch, will be 50% off after a few months, I wonder if anyone would ever buy this remade star which put the company's reputation and dignity near to death. But I feel that Samsung would be like Apple this time and price the S8 and S8+ higher to keep the Note 7's deal relevant, since they still need to regain back their huge loss after the fiasco of their black flag
[deleted post]Upon inspection, Samsung themselves already said that the problem was with the internal structure or design of the phone, leaving no space for the battery to breathe. Even if they put a different battery with the same capacity, the problem of explosion would continue again and again, which is why the report is telling that the battery will be slightly degraded (I suspect around 3,000-3,200mAh) in order to keep the battery free to move inside. I wish people were doing research..........
Personally can't wait, not a fan of the S8 bezel-less display, rear fingerprint sensor and no home button. So im eagerly awaiting this, hope having a smaller battery and a new phone case/frame sorts out any issues.
I find this ethically unacceptable. I do hope authorities in these markets reject this move.

There was a huge user base of note7 owners who were not ready to give up on there note7 even after the risk, there ok with there note7 but samsung started blocking note7 through imei so they had no ther option but to return there units,
So this is a great news for people who wud want to buy note7 for a affordable price.however samsung sud release its full specs before selling it otherwise no one will buy it.
JMTM, 21 Feb 2017you are talking about someone just released 2017 A5 with marshmallow lol Note7 was originally released with Marshmallow last year. They have no excuse it for it not to have Nougat this year.
Onyxia, 21 Feb 2017If the price is around $450, there's no reason to buy any other smartphone.lol thats ($450US) their 2017 A5 price, so we all know its not gonna happen
JMTM, 21 Feb 2017seriously... some of you guys really want to buy this outdated crap - refurbished - packed wit... moreTrust me, some Samsung fanboys out there are worse than the Apple ones. They will buy whatever Samsung shoves down their throat, no matter the cost or quality or worthiness of the product. Worst of all, they're going to gloat and hail Samsung as "the best company ever" while they buy their bulls**t.
Sad, but unfortunately true story.
Samsung didn't learn a thing or seems. Only a complete idiot will buy such thing, that may again explode and kill you and everyone else around you.
If the price is around $450, there's no reason to buy any other smartphone.
AngryLithuanian, 21 Feb 2017Neither funny neither sarcastic. As the man said, you're the fool here.
On the topic itself... moreSome people find it people, some don't, and it was sarcasm. You're explaining to me what I wrote? Nice try. lol
Anyway, they should price it 50% lower than its original price, since it gave the device bad reputation. Hell, some people can also still be scared to buy the device, even if the batteries were replaced. It's nice seeing Samsung try, though.
