I don't know why Samsung for 900 USD device use unknown cheap battery suppliers instead of using proven ones like Panasonic.
AnonD-380093, 03 Sep 2016SDI (Samsung's own company) batteries are not affected. The faulty batteries are from Chinese ... moreITM Semiconductor is a local Korean firm that makes the battery pack and those are the ones that are exploding. The China launch of Note7 is unaffected because those battery's are made by Chinese company Amperex Technology. Per the Koreaherald:
"For the phones sold in Korea and some overseas markets, ITM Semiconductor, a Korean firm, produces the battery pack. Most of the phones to be sold in China are equipped with those produced by ChinaÂ’s Amperex Technology.
Thus far, explosions have been reported on the phones using the ITM battery pack."
This is an actual source, not whatever your making up.
Davood , 03 Sep 2016No but still the same problem with pen getting stuck in it's place (the earlier issue) battery... moreThat's other problem...I don't mean to blame Samsung or anyone here...quality check is a must before you try to sell it...the S-pen is the main feature of Note 7...but problem like stuck S-pen making people worry..
AnonD-380093, 03 Sep 2016SDI (Samsung's own company) batteries are not affected. The faulty batteries are from Chinese ... moreSamsung use made-in-china battery when they made phones in Korea, and use made-in-Korea battery when they make phone in China? Are the managers of Samsung idiots?
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2016This is negligence from Samsung with their failed QUALITY CHECK... A sign to never buy Sams... moreOne bad egg from a basket of eggs. You throw away all of them? You got no common sense. Admit it, you a hater.

A sign to never buy Sams... moretell me why samsung response to battery problem unlike apple
Sammy only do cheap batteries for outside Asia, inide Asia they do the job they need to do worldwide!
but, because sammy dont care about consumer in Europe or in USA or even Australia and so on they put even more cheap batteries to people have problems and to make buyers to pay more for a repair! - to fill up the pockets of sammy!
only blind people buy sammy and apple those days, they are too expensive for the things they offer...
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2016LOL, the faulty batteries are made by Samsung SDI, obviously Chinese battery OEM win this round.SDI (Samsung's own company) batteries are not affected. The faulty batteries are from Chinese supplier ITM. Give us a link who mention your statement.
I give you mine
so it won't explode into my face?
thanks for securing my bedroom from firing up everynight.
sammy is the best but they screwed it up this time really bad,
note 7 is a really bad loss for now.
What's in our "U.S. VERSION" some cancer causing radiation that they have the cure for? I think it's a bunch of B.S. that they have batteries from different suppliers.
I am sure they have nicer ones and pay less too. Why are we paying so much for these phablet that don't have the battery China's have in them? Hmmmmm
