Maybe that dude destroyed his own phone but want a replacement for free, didn't expect it to blow this up sky high haha.
At Lithuania they stopped the pre-orders for 5 days at least it's what they told us when I called :D Such a fail...
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2016Not surprising. More poor quality products from Samesung. Not mentioned to Samsung smartphones, just the Note 7's battery problems only.
Its like how large quantities of meat is sometimes recalled because of fear of a small contaminated part has been mixed in. In the case of the battery no one has gotten hurt yet but the risk is there. If someone should get hurt then no one will dare buy the Note 7. I wouldn't. Samsung has to come out telling the public that the bad batteries are in such and such serial no ranges of phone and then recall those serial no ranges. Without cheating and taking chances. Because if a battery from a unlisted range then explodes then no one will trust Samsung any longer.
Unacceptable for a 800 US dollar device to come with so many problems. Has Samsung fallen asleep on the wheel? I hope nobody is going to suffer any burns or die.

-The defective batteries are manufactured IN KOREA
-0.1% does't mean that something happens the 1000th repetition, it means that it has 1/1000 posiblities to happen ever
I respect Samsung for issuing an official statement even before the phones have officially been delivered to customers in most of the world. Unlike other manufacturers like LG, Samsung showed courage and I will buy a Samsung again.
PS - I am not a samsung addict and I have phones from multiple manufacturers
Something had to happen,when you get heaps & bounds, their is mother nature, going to break you need pieces.!
Ive only seen one photo of the phone completely burnt and that was from somebody in China no disrespect but he was probably using a cheap cable or charger I've not seen any other make his claim from any other country. Has anyone??? Theres always teething issues with news phones but claims of this exploding isnt good us it. I'll see what happens if not I'm jumping to the s7 Edge
It is not wise to have a sealed battery! The situation will be much easy to handle if the battery is removable.
