When Samsung tries to copy Lumia 950 (xl), i.e. by including iris scanner, using USB type C, fast charging, etc. Now they want to roll out update to correct the issue at hand. They better stick to what they know, and stop copying Microsoft and Iphone

Now all companies must produce phones with removable batteries.This is alone solution.Phones with non removable batteries are shit only.
DenimAsh2, 14 Sep 2016Is it true samsung is planning to cut the note 7s battery by 40% to prevent overheating?Its not going to reduce the battery capacity. Is is putting a software update for existing note 7 that are already out to limit them from charging more than 60% to prevent the phones from overheating and encourage the people to hand in their potentially faulty note 7's.

Asking $300 for getting one tells us you don't put value for other people's hard work. You want a semi-free ride.

Equinox Hydroid, 14 Sep 2016Even after the recalling old devices I mean the users trustAnd life goes on. That's the end of it. I'd get my Note7 replacement, while you and the rest don't buy. Simple as that.
S6 Edge Plus users like you obviously don't need the S Pen. You're covered by getting the S7 Edge, or you wait for the next Edge device. You seem rreally lost when it come to buying devices anyway.
Note 4 to S6 Edge, and now Note7? Well, by the time you finally see that they'd nothing wrong anyhow, and 6 months later the price is half, get it.
Go get your gold platinum - I know how crazy you are with that color status.
if this phone is priced at 300$ I can accept the battery issue, but this is priced for 800$ which is kinda disappointing for the price. I personally don't like over priced phones. That's why I hate apple. But this is not acceptable also for samsung. Good thing they replace those affected units. It's really Shamesung now. This thing won't make me happy until the end of my life anyway. So why throw a lot of money on this things?
It's time for samsung to retire the Note line and move the s pen and wacom tech to the S flagship line or to a high end tablet. This way, they will save on marketing and make it easier for them to sync the specs by just announcing one flagship line per year. They will also have more time for testing their products properly.
Note 7 3500 mah now limited to 60%. And 60% of 3500 os 2100 what a joke on a ~900$ phone and a quad hd screen and a powerful cpu/gpu.
you will see that Note 7 will bounce back
the only phone in history that keeps appealing after a major problem
[deleted post]I don't care if Samsung quits the mobile business after this. I'm waiting for my safe replacement, and if it's the last Galaxy Note, then so be it.
I'm sure other companies will pick up making a smartphone with a digitizer pen. They know it sells.
Sorry to quote 70 units exploded n USA only, an update to restrict charge above 60%, exploding has more than ever damaged it's reputation! Retailers most have not returned until a replacement given. They want their money back even.
Samsung has a "quick fix" in the works for stubborn Galaxy Note 7 owners who don't want to return their devices, despite the global recall over batteries that might potentially explode. The company will roll out a software update on September 20th in South Korea that will limit the Note 7's battery to a 60 percent charge, which will hopefully prevent overheating,
Equinox Hydroid, 14 Sep 2016Samsung advises note 7 users to charge it to 60% !!!
I think they're kidding...........I thin... moreNobody wants this situation. Nobody.
However, if you haven't heard, they're replacing every Note7 with the correct batteries.
Meantime, just still enjoy your S6 Plus.
