grknats, 10 Sep 2016hi everybody! im from Turkey i went store of samsung in my city yesterday and he said that... moreI heard about 2 sources (companies) of battery and only one is the reason and some says that you can know if you have the safe one .. just search YouTube for note 7
Even I am one of those like samsung smart phones . But I think it's really horrible that a battery explode in that way .it is really a big mistake and a black point in the head of Samsung ... I am not sure how Samsung will resolve that missry thing
ahmed tanveer, 10 Sep 2016It is most probably a fake news(rumor).uh, no, this is something that's actually happening and Samsung is actually in the process of fixing. What makes you think that this would be a rumor?
It's surprising what a difference a couple of black options make. Apple should've offered it back in 2014 but held it until this third year of similar designs. Where Apple is heading with three-year design cycles is what HTC did with the M9. Like automobile manufacturers, we can't expect them to reinvent the wheel every year and change the design annually. I predict Apple will revamp iPhone for 2017 but will hold back some color options so they can offer it the following next two years. That's Apple's way of holding back to the consumers and relying on you to buy the third iteration because of its sexy, new splash of color.
Still, I buying iPhone 7/7 Plus, Note 7, or S7 edge are just testing ground for next year's flagships. Apple is banking on wireless headphones. The dual edged displays will be standard in 2017 for Samsung and was also a placeholder for YOUM (2013) since they have been working on foldable displays for seven years. Imagine wrapping a screen on your wrist? I saw foldable, paper-like displays since 2011 CES. We drop nearly a grand on these devices under the spell of their PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE. We sell it off a few months later and usually at a LOSS. When will some of you realize you are simply blinded by design and marketing?
Biggest disappointment of the iPhone 7? I wanted a capacitive home button and all I get is the BlackBerry Storm (2008) haptic feedback I can't turn off. No VR and still using screen resolution found on Android flagships from 2012-2013. The black options is like putting lipstick on a pig. Only to hide those ugly antenna lines that still wouldn't radically change how you use it. Six months ago might seem long in tech, but that's like yesterday in real life. Heck, five years ago can feel like yesterday. Just six months ago, we were raving about the S7 edge. By MWC, we will forget about the Note7 and iPhone 7 again. Short memories. Our purchases start to become obsolete the moment we buy them.
Skip the sevens. Wait for the eights...
Samsung Galaxy S8, Note8 (Ultra HD)
Apple iPhone 8, 8 Plus
Industry gamechanger - Samsung's Project Valley (aka Galaxy X or Wing)..
Or forget smartphones since they have generally hit a plateau and give us robots, teleportation, time travel, dimension hopping, space travels, etc. Smartphone have this new feature annually called, "do I give a f...?"
Bojan, 10 Sep 2016Then go buy LG G5/V20. Excellent phones for the price and quality.Sorry dear cant waste my money on LG phones i have to keep on my S6 edge plus
Bojan, 10 Sep 2016Then go buy LG G5/V20. Excellent phones for the price and quality.No way.
I will buy mate 8,p9 or s7 edge instead.
LG(G5/V20) have the worst design ever used in mobiles,very small batteries,no iris scanner,no SpO2,no heart rate,no resale value in the market,worse screen type,
wireless charging,no cgg5,no water or dust proof,no stylus.
Even if i decide to skip note 7,i will buy Huawei or Samsung phone.
LG phones are overpriced.
i heard a news that it is a bomb
i mean it will explode while normal use and while charging
PARAG B, 10 Sep 2016Nice story.Mr Hypocrite.
Btw your perception is totaly based on your Note7 fanboy Hangover..L... moreNote7 fanboy hangover?
Wow. What does that mean, anyway?
Didn't you do the sane thing when you spent $935 for that limited special order for the 64 GB Note.5 for your region's market? You have bragged about it. You justified EVERYTHING that was changed like the sealed battery is ok because you think peeling the back and changing to fresh batteries was so old school? Or the fact that it's ok that microSD was taken out because because you had OTG dongle to carry your media around?
If you haven't been reading, I still criticize the glass back and sealed battery. I'd like the infrared denote controller back too.
Can't wait for your gold platinum Note7 order coming to you this October, huh? Feeling all left out because you're still with the Note.5 enduring with an OTG dongle to enjoy more media?
Well just head down to the local dealer and play around with the demo unit - again and again. You can see all areas of the screen while on landscape mode, and the S Pen works even on the curved edge. Funny how you'd complain on the S Pen as you keep telling us how you'd rather get a V20.
It's just a month more till you can actually get to relate. You will love the camera. You will love the very slightly curved screen. You will appreciate the S Pen working on the curves as well. You will love water-resistance. You will love it comes in your favorite gold
[deleted post]Only 38 out of 1.5 million are affected and Samsung has solved this problem and will start selling again after a month(maybe) or so.
When they will be 100% sure of their customer safety.
Who do you think you are?
President of Customer Product Safety.
[deleted post]That is ridiculous. Your are letting yourself be convinced by fear of anecdote. It is unfortunate that a scenario such that you are describing happened to someone, but you are frankly more likely to get shot in Chicago if you go there for a day, than to have your phone actually explode. 35 cases of overheating have been observed, 24 with a case rupture, out of *millions of phones shipped*. And on top of that, Samsung is issuing a complete and total recall and remedying the problem.
Charge your phone a couple of times and if it doesn't get hot, it probably never will.
I value your concern for others, and your own decision is respectable, but I would like to counter-argue that it is founded in a story, instead of considering one's actual chance of having a defective battery.
ahmed tanveer, 10 Sep 2016Its price will not fall this much. It will fall to 600$(maximum).Dear its sales will drop for sure and as a result its price must drop as alot of persons now are affraid to get it after what happened like me i was waiting to get one but now am confused
z1, 10 Sep 2016Definitely a fake poll. People are thinking about switching to Apple iPhone.No,it was a real poll done on www.gsmarena.com
Most of the people owning android or samsung hate apple because of its disadvantages.
You cannot download music,movie,shows,dramas from browser.
Apple app store is also smaller than play store(android),too much expensive(you may have heard the kidney joke),bad display,poor connectivity(bluetooth,etc.),worse screen type,small battery,no cgg,no card slot,no iris scanner,no heart rate sensor,no SpO2,no wireless charging,etc.
k, 10 Sep 2016Really? Despite the battery spooking people. Yeah!Most of the people(including me) trust Samsung and hoping that recall will fix this problem.
As,Samsung has identified and has started to fix it.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2016People risking of buying a bomb even after the problem has been indentified.Just stay away fro... moreSamsung has solved this problem(that why they explode and have found a way to fix it).
They also started a recall and will start selling it again when it will be 100% safe for us(customers).
RAJARAJAN, 10 Sep 2016note 5 is best.instead of buying note 7 i recommend to buy lg v20.it is one the best phone in ... moreLG V20 has some disadvantages which can be a deal breaker.
e.g=small battery,bad(ugly) design,worse screen type,no wireless charging,no stylus,no water or dust proof,no cgg5,no always on display,no heart rate sensor,no SpO2,no iris scanner,etc.
Note 7 has many(almost 20) great features which no other phone has.
lhp, 10 Sep 2016No fire resistance... :-PThey're giving free fire extinguishers.
