Imperator Neubaticus, 15 Oct 2016Man it's so difficult to find a replacement for this phone. Nothing else comes close :( contem... moreAfter Note5 received Nougat update it will have all the Note7 features. Except for iris scanner of course. Just wait a little bit longer. Dont rush Samsung. After all of this happening you should have learnt not to rush Samsung anymore. They rushed, they give you poop device. They slow, they give you a very nice update; eventually.
I am a Note addict; Note 4(Stolen), Note 8, Note 12.2. Dilemma, what now? Samsung have nobody told you that in times like this you MUST keep your customers informed every step of the way or are you happy if your loyal customer base will reluctantly move elsewhere?
Besides keeping your customers informed my suggestion would be, urgently bring out a Note 5 128g to provide your customers with a sensible alternative and please don't even mention the ridiculous 32g or even 64g versions.... unfortunately Samsung is renowned for not listening to their customers so I sadly have little hope of any positive response from Samsung.
Man it's so difficult to find a replacement for this phone. Nothing else comes close :( contemplating note 5 but it's still inferior. :(
I was very thankful I didn't downgrade my SAFE Note 5 to UNSAFE Note 7.
I can still enjoy travelling on a plane with my phone.
Taking photographs of scenery above the ground, listening to my favorite music files, playing games.
No worry with my 64GB Note 5.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2016US Government has banned carrying any Note 7 on any flight even in power off mode. I bought No... moreReports say Note 7 ban in flights will be imposed from next week, not from today or tomorrow. So it should be okay for this week. When you land immediately contact nearby official Samsung store or customer care and they should return you money. Or somehow (via mail, phone or visit there) contact their head office customer service. Also mention your circumstance there. If you still fail to do that, throw the battery out before your return flight.
When did you buy it? You shouldn't have bought it after 35 reports of exploding. Remember one thing, Samsung sucks. I hate Samsung androids from long ago. And now I see another reason to dislike this brand.
I think S6 edge plus would be a good choice right now, price has immensely gone down after the release of S7 series. I'm seriously looking forward to it.
Samsung can you guys release note 7 agai with higher 4x2.5GHz mongoose & 4x1.8GHz cortex-A53. Solve the issue first and let it be available on january 2017
techlover369, 15 Oct 2016I suggest u buy the Xiaomi mi 5 its incredibleI rather choice apple, samsung or oppo device than that
Hope this design wll apply to S8 Edge. 5.5 inch Amoled UHD display, 600ppi and dual camera with dual pixel 16mp & 8mp in front. With new exynos 9 quad-core 3.0GHz Mongoose & quad-core 2.3GHz Cortex-A73. With Mali-G71. Battery of 3900mAh
GabrielHernandez1, 14 Oct 2016That proves I'm right and the battery explodes only in America, not in the Asian market. Anoth... moreofficial tallies of 92 incidents in the US, plus at least 17 in Korea, 1 in Taiwan and 2 in Australia.)
i think the problem is only in snapdragon processor and the explosion only in this processor and there is not any problem in exynos
cyber soldier, 14 Oct 2016got your lesson, shamesung?? better start making phones which have a removable battery, FM rad... moreand if they added the radio & SD card slot (which already added) the phones won't explode??! :D
there were explosion accidents of galaxy s4 while charging also back in 2013 and it had a removable battery! ;)
Perfect10, 14 Oct 2016Buy htc 10, it is perfectI suggest u buy the Xiaomi mi 5 its incredible
US Government has banned carrying any Note 7 on any flight even in power off mode. I bought Note 7 in Dubai and came to US for a visit. Now what do I do? Samsung US no one is bothered to help as its not a US device and I cannot fly out of US with this device. So basically Samsung expects you to bin $800 phone and treat it as mistake of a customer for having bought a Note 7. Insider job or otherwise, Forum please see how Samsung is treating its loyal customers who bought top of the line premium phone.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016Yes, it does feel like a conspiracy to discredit Samsung. Most (all?) incidents seem to origin... moreIt is a conspiracy, an inside job or phenomenal incompetance on the part of Samsung. These things just dont happen. I am no Samsung fan, but Samsung knows its trade and makes some "far out" phones. I am a Sony guy, but exploding non removable batts are not Samsungs forte. Modern phones have overload protection, as you have pointed out. The Note 7 is not a whole world away from the S7 or Note 5 or any other phones. A poorly performing phone with teething troubles is one thing, not an exploding one. Li ions have been around for years and the Dell and Toshiba incidents were in the eay days. A lot of work has gone into making batts safe. Even oven like iPads and HPs havent suffered this fate. Think of a high end Europen or Japanese luxury car that explodes each time you crank the engine. internal combustion engines are not Improvised explosive devices. A faulty airbag or fuel line or brake, maybe. But an exploding engine. No Way. Or does Samsung source batts from GS Yuasa, ( remember the 787 dreamliner fires ) Hope Samsung sets the competition on FIRE!! This is a North Korean attack on South Korea. Samsung should get a PI to get to the bottom of this.
