I bought the note 7 with pre-order. My experience with 4 year note-2 was very good and I did not have much interest for iphone primarily due to it's proprietary interests. In fact I was more than happy with Note 2 for my needs and I liked the pen functionality. Now the debate is if I want to wait for the fix and continue to use note 7 or change to a another phone. My preference for an alternative phone can be; note-5, s7 edge, or iphone 7 plus in a far distance. I am not overly loyal to Samsung but I have no reason to note series yet. Even though note 5 is a recent model, note 7 has significantly faster processor and other functionalities such as a very good camera, audio recording system, and (hopefully) better fixed battery. From the negative aspect, airlines may continue to have a ban for some time. That can be an issue but I travel 2-3 trips during a year. I live in Brisbane, my phone service informed me that I can cancel my contract and go to another phone within 3 days or so. Currently I use loan phone s7 edge but still like the note 7 functions.
i dont care, manufacturing defects are common when it comes to electronics. im very sure samsung will get this fixed and come back like a champion. im a note user, been buying all the notes and now im using note 5 -- i'll wait for note 7
I would just say one thing to the Note 7 haters. iPhone had the hairgate issue and the bendgate issue with their last year devices. They did not accept the flaw in their design though 100s and 1000s of people complained about the same. Samsung atleast had the courage to come out and recall the device. They did not hide their face like the Apple did.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 14 Sep 2016Man. You didn't get it - they're replacing early released ones with safe units, and selling sa... morehardwork?then how come it has a faulty battery if they work hard?Poor Quality control?poor design?so who is to be blamed?their hardwork?it's like selling lambo with a flat tires, would you accept that?a half baked lambo for a premium price?of course at this price every customer expect it to be perfect.
waiting since two month for note 7 .....how many days i have to waiting for note 7 ?
Mrlapa, 15 Sep 2016Initially i wanted to upgrade from note 4 to NOTE7 The only thing that stopped me was not the ... moreIKR.. note series is actually good but what happens with note 7 is a falldown, its up to you how are you going to support still the note series even though we already know the capability of note series. Positive side? it happens on a technology even iphones explodes and everything happens for a reason, there are some customers still wants the phone because of the capability and quality but suddenly there are some customers wanted to leave because of what happen on it and yes we cannot blame them for such a purpose. Again its still up to you how are you going to support those OS or mobile phone.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 15 Sep 2016While the kiddies are laughing, still don't understand the meaning of
REPLACEMENT, and seem... moreThe battery issue sealed the deal for me. It shows me that even though they brought back the SD, improved the camera a bit, improved the stylus a bit; as a Note 5 user, why?
What I see is a company that still has a major crush on Apple and has screwed their own customer base over it. They took features out of the 5, glass back (like iPhone did) and now exploding batteries.
Then you look at their advertising campaign always comparing themselves to iPhone, poking fun at iPhone - they are obsessed with iPhone!
After fixing the issues with Note 5, I don't see any other reason to upgrade other than the SD. Let's see if Samsung can be their own company instead of crushing on Apple and I'll check it out next year.
Initially i wanted to upgrade from note 4 to NOTE7 The only thing that stopped me was not the fact that the battery catches fire, it is the propitiatory charging port. Why no MicroUsb? Why they change well accepted standards?
If they would have made this phone with removable battery, the could just recall the battery and save billions.... I just don't get Samsung! Note 4 was almost perfect why they want to take away from that.
Equinox Hydroid, 14 Sep 2016I don't hate the device but the point was about the fear from the continous accidents concerni... moreYou're still aren't getting the message... Once the Note7 start being regularly sold again, there will be NO battery problems. NO more exploding.
And please, don't ask how would anyone in know if they are the new safe batch...
While the kiddies are laughing, still don't understand the meaning of
REPLACEMENT, and seem want to pay only $300 for old stock that possibly might explode, Samsung is making the effort to reach out.
I can understand the work of producing millions of Note7, having to ship them out to exchange the defective ones. I already turned off mine to be safe from burns.
I have no sympathy if Samsung takes an even worse fall THAN from what they did with the S6 and Note.5 with no memory expansion and taking out features we enjoyed before. It serves as a lesson to Samsung and other companies to always check.
You got turned off from getting or owning the Note7 even after the corrections to the batteries have been done? Good riddance. Go get the shiny competition's products.
But for those going to use this after swapping to the safe units, we get the better features smartphone on the planet, and this one has an S Pen, a headphone jack and wasn't designed to make more money out of accessories with the silliest looks.
DenimAsh2, 14 Sep 2016Is it true samsung is planning to cut the note 7s battery by 40% to prevent overheating?It was rumoured to be happening to a Korean update.... Not sure sure about other countries.. The simple way to avoid is to not update your software.
Once the fixed note 7s are available I will exchange mine. Until then I have turned off fast charge and am accepting that there is a minute risk something may happen. (driving a car has a higher risk)
I have had mine for a month without any case or screen protection. It doesn't have the slighted mark on it for anyone who is interested. Before I exchange it I will see how hard it is to scratch on my pocket
Equinox Hydroid, 14 Sep 2016i don't hate the device but it was about fear from its battery several accidents and to waste ... moreIf in case you're already using the safe Note 7, and it is still exploding. You can always sue them, you'll get money from it. :)

I'm not a Samsung Fanboy, but based on it's competitors on the market, it is still the one to beat. I've considered iPhone 7 Plus and LG V20, but features on Note 7 still is the best so far for me. Positive outweighs the negative and I definitely won't be settling for less. I'm willing to wait till it's safe to buy again.
