They should have renamed it the Note 7s (S for safe) and emphasized it in marketing communications
This would also have saved the users explanation to airlines whether the phone is safe or not ("the warning is for note 7,but mine is note 7s")
I would just hold out on my defected Note 7 and force Samsung to buy it back at 100% profit. Or let it explode in a YouTube video and let it go viral. Trading in for a new one is letting Samsung off the hook too easily.

Guess what? It is labeled as the ugliest phone of that year. To conclude, waterproof phone with removable battery simply ugly. So, asking Samsung to go back to that era is a no no.
AnonD-479301, 15 Sep 2016I hate non removable battery and hybrid sim slot most .I can live with non removable battery if its of a Li-Poly type...
Well, my phone offer separate slots for the cards, dual sim and micro SD, so yeah, switch brand is what you need to do...
Galaxy Note 7 is dead!
Samsung mobile division is in life support.

viveksubhash, 15 Sep 2016wait user replaceable batteries on watches??? where??You can remove the back of a quartz watch, the lg v20 already has it but they have to make it water proof i don't think it should be too hard
AnonD-454786, 15 Sep 2016incator... yes definitely...I tried not to mention that directly because gsmarena will likely to get triggered, immediately fix the title and remove my post to avoid the damage :)
I'll never upgrade to the Note 7..SAMSUNG will go the way way Nokia did if it doesn't learn from this and go back to basics, for get about water proof, no body cares about that bring back the replaceable battwry and get rid of the front button.
Innovate and listen to your customers.

They said that "anything is possible", One of the reason they hadnt done it already is because of technological hiccups and cost. So, after this Note7 fiasco, I'm betting the battery will be removable in the S8 or the Note8
mir, 15 Sep 2016If they really cared about the safety of their customers in the first place, then they should'... moreThere's no evidence that it was rushed. It came out the same time the note5 did the previous year.
