Please describe it to me in an o... moreContents of the deleted post that you could read my reply too....?
'anon' (although also has five to ten other logins...) was chiding another user, an owner of a Note 7, for their poor exploding and 'bad' phone. Then proclaiming how great their note 5 is.
This same user (I believe), when they had a Note Edge/Note 4, would jive everybody about how great it was.. then they got that Note 5 and they would annoy all Note Edge forum readers by taunting how cheap and dodgy the Note 4 was vs their 'premium' Note 5.
They didn't take well to critisism about non removable battery and no expandable memory, hence 'no upgrade from Note 4'.
The user, being so vocal for the 'greatness' that is the Note 5, has undertaken constant negativity for the Note 7 forum, and was attempting to aggravate the solemn Note 7 user who reluctantly has to retire their phone.
Saying some sillyness about "laughing last is best"..... (hence my reply)
It is sad to have to return the Note 7.
The reason no one wants to is no other flagships come close.
I even considered jumping ship to iOS, but one look at the iphone 7, and it just concreted my belief about how revolutionary the new Note is...
That same aesthetic that makes the Note 7 outstanding (vs most other phone designs) is also, in my opinion (IMO), what is causing Samsung its present woes!; the super flexible glass front and back providing little rigidity to the svelte aluminium frame... this phone has the ability to bend!!
And the battery isn't designed to flex!- it ruptures cells, and makes smoke escape from device (computers run on smoke; when the smoke escapes they stop working)..
Have we seen any exploded phones in rigid cases? (I haven't)
I think people sit on the Note 7, flex it, look at it, think 'fine', and go about continuing living a merry existence until their phone goes boom.
I could be wrong- but looking at the facts; phones never been used, are fine.
Samsung found no faults in lab environment.
Something in the 'realworld' is compromising this phone; possibly altitude adjustments effecting the cells; but I would seriously hazzard it is phone flex.
Samsung being able to cripple these phones via an update, and their present ineptness at convincing the world the issue has been isolated and corrected, is cause enough for me to move on (I hope not too, please Sammy, make it work out!).
Presently I have a replacement unit in the same rigid case I kept my origional in.
It is a tech21 wallet/foldover case. (It sucks/not recommended-The magnetic clip launches itself at the screen all the time; and it is metal..)
I would recommend the Spigen cases as a starting point. Get the two part frames that have a rigid and a soft component...
I believe that, this is big defilement against Samsung. Samsung shall thoroughly investigate these incidents from beginning. Found guilty or guilties... And this is a fact that, Note 7 is only and unrepeatable..!!!
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 - The biggest failure & flop of the year.. Simply a mini-c4 bomb.. Easily hurt u,, or might kill u.. No doubt about it"... Too humiliated, embarassing scenario for the korean tech giant......

What you said is really interesting for me.
I did not know, that the first Note N7000 had 256 pressure levels. I thought that it had none at all or maybe three or ten.
Great thanks again.

Yes, the 4096 on the Note7 with 360 Hz instead of 240 Hz response has a very smooth effect. Note7 S Pen requires lesser pressure to exert to make heavier lines. Absolute pleasure when drawing.
Here are my time-lapse drawing results:
I can make thin and thick lines much better. Writing annotations is very good as well.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2016I still waiting note 7 or note 8:)Guess what? Note 8 is already there and was actually released nearly four years ago. But that was Note 8.0. Do not confuse them, if possible.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2016True. Note 7 pulled down Samsung.
Not Note 5, not S6.
Note 7 is the black sheep.
Safety is ... moreNote 5 is not shipped in many countries.
In some countries, the Note 4, S5 and Note 3 (next to S7) were the most future-proof phones after such a long time.
Remember, many Cars, Ships and Planes are multiple times as old as iPhone 2G.

And does 1024 on the Note 4 mean 512 on the Note 3? If so, then where is the purpose of more pressure levels? I have nothing against them, but they will barely improve anything in a practical way.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2016At least Note 5 is not exploding and not cheap plastic!What is so bad about plastic? Why do you consider it as cheap? It is robust and does not break, scratch or slide out of the hand.
Every single removed feature in successors always made me sick. I always expect them to cover the full feature range of all predecessors.
Here is a random case: in the Note7 browser, holding down a link does not longer show the ordinary Â„OpenÂ“-option in the option-menu. Everybody thinks: why don't you just tap the link?
Well, what is that link forces me to open a new tab, but I don't want to? I might hit the fifty-tab limit, which causes, since S6, the first tab to be closed without any warning at all. Well, Lady Lee did not think about that.
The Note 7 is actually the first time ripe phone (it is not just water-protected, but even useable underwater. And the pen is more convenient to use than the fingers anyway).
I am looking forward to Hyun YEUL Lee's next performance on stage.
I am not surprised
They sold me an A5 with faulted software and were not interested in fixing the issue. I had to install custom ROMs to get it running, etc.
Karma gets you every now and then.
If you continue to sell sh*t

Nobody should buy this phone anymore. It is always the risk of it to explode and you will have more trouble to send it and receive it again than just buying an other phone
Equinox Hydroid, 10 Oct 2016Its officialy now guys samsung halted the note 7 production!!!!!!! :(As much as I want to keep using a Note7, the integrity of it not exploding is diminishing. Multiple replaced units exploding are getting too widespread now. I lost money in buying 2 cases and D Brand skin that's still on its way to me. At least it gave me 45 days of usage - camera, S Pen, and amazing vibrant screen are totally top notch.
I'm relieved that I still have my Note 3 with 10,000 mAh extended battery to use.
I do hope this triggers the next Galaxies back with removable batteries. I absolutely do not see the logic of sealed batteries, except for water-resistance - which I've never even tested.
And that glass back idea is still so silly.
Now I'm looking into the possibility of getting a brand new Note 4, and a 10,000 mAh extended battery for it.
Equinox Hydroid, 10 Oct 2016Its officialy now guys samsung halted the note 7 production!!!!!!! :(Halted. I dont expect a relaunch any sooner. It is better if they fix it for real and relaunch with the launch of S8 next year. Double flagship launch would be great. Lets set the time around March. No rush. April is even better. Like seriously, no rush at all. Master the art of perfection first Samsung!
