2016 Explodegate and pengate.
Done with samsung. I was convinced by everyone that android is the bestest. Delay in updates, inconsisties, Brick gate, i'm going back to apple.
cancelling pre order. Later Scamsung.
Very good move. They acknowledged that their battery are likely faulty instead of blaming the users and made an massive recall that costs them millions in $$$.
A lame company would have said: the users misused the phone so not our fault.
No, they've put their brand at risk for us, the customers. Thanks Samsung for this sweet risky move. Now if you could just be faster in terms of updates and bringing them to older devices, you would be almost perfect (perfection would be a phone with an GTX Titan, 64 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 1 Tb UFS 2.0, 4K screen with optional 3D, updates at Google's pace, money printing module, unbreakable, NEVER OVERHEAT, being very thin but not that much, huge battery and other features I won't write here beacause there are so many, WHILE costing 5$ or less, without a plan)
iron wolve, 02 Sep 2016 sony the brand who let costumer enjoy fireball z4 right . i never see sony recall productThey would have to honor their warranty first before recalling products *cough z2 gap cough* that's sony for you haha
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2016they don't give a crap about customer, they just don't want a lawsuit.That's something very harsh to say sir..... But my is that so true.
maybe he can fire battery of to charge to play games,movies,music and camera in recording and take picture.Maybe he can coming fire.I DONT WANT TO TRASH THIS PHONE.I USED SAMSUNG ALWAYS AND I LOVE.This phone not going to trash.
Samsung is the only company to do this although it's not the only with a faulted product.
Casedy, 02 Sep 2016I'm alway have concern about the sealed batteries, especially those need daily charging.Same here. That's why I love Qnovo.
I know a lot of people view this as bad for Samsung, but it may be a really good thing too. Personally, Taking care of customers is ignored so often and a company stepping up to take care of people is a big deal. Good for them. They did the right thing. they bit the bullet and owned up to it. you don't see a lot of companies doing this. hats off to Samsung. On the other side, don't worry Apply will not make fun of you as you did for the Antenna Gate, Bend Gate. They are much better off to handle criticisms. So next time Samsung don't over Gloat your products with competitors, it looks cheap with your advertisement target done over the years.
AlienFromNextDoor, 02 Sep 2016Hahahahahahaahhahahahahaha HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Yea, apart from the selfcracking scre... more sony the brand who let costumer enjoy fireball z4 right .
i never see sony recall product
Why people jump on news like this and post nonsense just for the sake of it? Things like this happen in every industry and the least a company could do is to recall faulty products, like Samsung is doing.
Yeah, it's unfortunate and can hurt Samsung's reputation, but it could be way worse if they didn't show any hint of accountability.
Benji, 02 Sep 2016Some people are so hurt about this...this could happen to any manufacturer. Samsung is respons... moreExactly. Samsung admitted the issue and is taking prompt action unlike some companies who give stupid excuses like "you are using it the wrong way"... or it's a feature...lol...
This is why mobile phones should have removable batteries. I will only need to change battery instead of handing over phone... i love note 7 will still buy Notes... but this is disappointing...
