Why do people buy Mercs and BMWs when lots of cheaper cars are available ? iPhones and Samsung flagships do have something more than cheaper phones. Software is much more refined, performance is top class. Camera results are amazing. Software integration is flawless. Samsung battery issue is very unfortunate. I have been Samsung phone user for past 10 years, and this is the first time they have such problem. Did Apple recall all the phones over Antenna problem ? I think Samsung has taken a very honest and bold step in recalling the phones keeping user safety in mind, first.
That is why.

I thought there was only one from Singapore to Chennai. Note 2 is 4 year old model, people use non branded battery and chargers and also power back ups. That going to create problems
Samsung Note 2 phone emitted smoke after reportedly catching fire on a Singapore-Chennai flight of IndiGo on Friday morning when the plane was about to land.
The phone was kept in the overhead bin. "The crew noticed smoke from the bin and found the device was emitting smoke after possibly catching fire. They used fire extinguishers on it," said a spokesperson of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Samsung asked to give clarification before agency.

The relaunch will use fresh batch of Note7, meaning that there will be no refurbished old Note7 in India. No more battery issue after using ATL manufactured batteries.
why samsumg would do a recall an loose over 1 billion dollars just to send faulty batteries again to customers? that would not be a business idea of course they get new working batteries.
I fail to understand what type of people buy Samsung and Apple flagship phones. When better phones are available at much lower rates.

I think they're trying to lure more people in later by giving a 'discount', or they're trying to extract more money from the rich/desperate Indians before giving a normal price.
i badly need this beast no matter what... its just a killer beast.. wat an amazing look the black onyx hav...mind blowing
Boss......I m diehard fan of samsung and have faith on samsung...I m desperate to buy Note 7...
Buying iPhone this early is insane! I bought my iPhone 6 in March(when it was released) as prices were almost same as US. Buying now you have to shell out more
mir, 24 Sep 2016There's no way they would not sell those refurbished units. They'll just replace the batteries... moreThey can't do that, its illegal in most countries. And they can't sell refurbished phones in India because that's illegal too. Samsung wouldn't risk another publicity nightmare by deliberately breaking the law.
Yaa, I am also waiting for it since 23rd August after prebooking. Finally a date us coming from the GSM areana but not sure about he launch till now as Samsung flagship stores are still saying wait for some time for gge official dates and timings...

Tha... moreIf they aren't changing the fault battery, then why the hell they should recall all the Note 7 of the first batch. Sure a Tech-Giant won't do that as the recall had already damaged its reputation.
Great! I am quite interested in this device.
I do hope they work with DGCA (Aviation regulator in India) on the safety aspect, because I surely don't want to be hasseled by airlines while travelling.
Right now all flight safety announcements include a warning against using / charging the Note 7
Convincing the DGCA may not be easy, especially due to an old Note 2 battery catching fire a few days ago on an Indian plan. Hopefully, that incident was due to an aftermarket battery, or Samsung has had it!
New, Safe Galaxy Note 7 Units Are Overheating While Charging: Some customers in South Korea who have participated in the exchange program are now reporting that the new phone is overheating and losing battery power as it is being charged.
