"The problem can be simply resolved by changing the battery, but we'll come up with convincing measures for our consumers," they said. I've asked this numerous times "Why are they following in the steps of apple with this sealed battery garbage?" "Why ditch removable batteries?" "It makes the phone more sleek?" the idiots said, buying into that crap. Now look at you. I wish all their phones would explode (NOT CAUSING INJURY TO THE USER). Had they stuck to the tried and true removable battery, ALL they would have to do was say "remove defective battery as we send new batteries to all our customers with serials xxxxx". See how that works people who don't get why we LOVE removable batteries? Now they have to recall not just batteries, but handsets.
Samsung should come up with a new name "Note Explod" like a "Sony Explod" speakers. Booom :D
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2016only a 1 % chance of my phone exploding while charging no biggie0.1% actually. 10 times less. I'd like to know which countries were affected though.
Collateral effects of having sealed batteries. Instead of replacing the faulty batch now Samsung has to recall the handsets and repair. BAZINGA !!
Base on antutu: Droid z force is better option, smaller RAM compare note7, but faster, plus faater charging
BlackReaper, 02 Sep 2016That means your phone will explode at around 100th charge. No biggie??100.... Less than 3 months. My friend who own note 7 said "I am terribly f#cked,i dont want my phone explode on my pocket"
Get your insurance samboys ! A burn on your skin surely need money
Samsung should also compensate for the inconvenience of recalled units to the customers by giving free memory units or be headsets at discounted price as I phone 7 launch is just ahead. Otherwise it's a very serious matter.
India release today has been delayed. No new date. Keep waiting ......
Should one go for it now ?
They had their fun with bend gate. It's time other brands point at them with #bombgate. New favorite mobile for terrorists with portable bomb feature.
"simply changing battery" - yea, right. Very "simple" to change it (sarcasm here). Didnt they forget something? Money greedy oems. Battery should be user replacable in first place.
Also lags slower than a Note5! I really wanted to like Note7. Seems like QC for them lacks "quality." I can afford to pay good money. I can't afford to WASTE good money. Rather get a PS4 slim and Xbox One S on the same day. Still save $250 by getting both than a beautiful but fragile phone because the dual edge display is a cosmetic gimmick prone to cracking. The Note 4 is the last great Note that Samsung ever made.

Note 7 deliveries delayed in India. Just got a confirmation SMS from Samsung today at 10:45 am. Delay period unknown.
Waiting for Apple event "And you know what comes with an iPhone 7? A non-explosive battery, that's right!"
