Wow the Note7 is really turning out to be one big piece of crap huh?
Wow overheating that "does not pose a safety concern", that good for this coming winter. No need buying hand warmer pad or hand gloves. Just hold your cell phone.
Samsung,...please back to normal if you want survive.
Even .y S6 edge overheats.
I am so happy Samsung got a dose of Note7 recall.
Good punishment for them.
When I bought my S6 Edge and got hairline scratches on the display just by keeping it in the pockect Samsung India said that they cannot do anything about it inder the warranty since I bought the phone from abroad.
I have to forcefully put a screen gaurd and tamper glass. I hate covering my phone with it.
Good for samsung. Serves u right.
I am going for the iphone7 plus 256 gb.
Gd bye Samsung. Happy Diwali..
As someone mentioned, these are issues happens in new battery until it gets fully charged and fully drained few times.
Sony Xperia FOREVER, 29 Sep 2016not selling yet! i think at the beginning of October. excited huh? lolXperia xz is the best phone this year 2016. I don't like what's happening to Sammy but xz just can't be over looked, its a complete top of the line smart phone.

My S7 and 2 co-workers with S7 and S7 Edge are experiencing phone getting hot, battery draining and phone becoming unusable slow and being forced to do a hard reset (phone not responding). This started after recent software update. Funnily it only happens while using Wi-Fi at the workplace (many access points?) and not with Wi-Fi off or with Wi-Fi at home...
One of my co-workers rolled back his firmware to previous version and problem was resolved. I have informed our local Samsung, they told me they will get back to me...
[deleted post]It shows how the American media can harm a business. They try to make big news to cover whats really happening in the world. Wake up people
TaTa, 29 Sep 2016I own a galaxy s7 edge and had terrible issues with the support in my country. I read about si... moreThere are 26 reports of Note7 fires that Samsung was not able to acknowledge. In 12 cases, there was no fault found by the recalled Samsung handset. The other 14 cases included seven where the affected customer became unreachable shortly after, while the last seven victims either cancelled their reports or claimed to dispose of the device
We don't know if the Jeep fire in Florida counts as part of this. As further investigation was unable to confirm the Note7 was the actual cause of the fire
I'm a big fan of the Note series but given these battery issues Samsung should go back to its roots and allow replaceable batteries into Phablet category like in the past. If the Note 7 had replaceable batteries this would be a none issue given that it would of been an easy fix by just having customers return their faulty batteries vs entire phone saving Samsung millions if not billions of dollars.
[deleted post]Lina, those "Chinese factories in poor working conditions" are close to long gone for Apple. For the past Decade Chinese workers are demanding better working conditions, benefits and wages making foreign companies withdraw from hiring Chinese workers. Apple is investing heavily on robotics in local soil to save costs in the long run. Soon you will not see any more made in China stuff anymore. Those days will be long gone. Lets just hope they can still keep the cost low by doing it with robots at home. Or else we are looking at $2000 USD an iphone etc. For those who complaining about "made in china" stuff all these years... you will miss them
Apple_in_Cupertino, 29 Sep 2016Fandroids usually bash Apple for longer charging times. We have not implemented fast charging ... moreI do not agree at all.
I started using an iPhone 6 and a note edge from Nov 2014. The IPhone Battery started acting crazy(suddenly from 40%-0%) just after 8 months But the Note Edge Battery was great for around 13 months and I used Note Edge way more than iPhone 6. This is not an isolated problem with IPhone batteries and can easily be found these complaints everywhere on internet.
P.S: I am no fanboy. Currently using Note 7 and IPhone 6 (as the IPhone 7 plus is not delivered yet). Didn't turn on my Lumia 1520 in last few months.
Julliard, 29 Sep 2016They didn't cut corners. Everyone should know by now it is SDI(battery manufacturer) manufactu... moreSDI belongs to Samsung in case you didn't know.
Its exact denomination is "Samsung SDI Co."
[deleted post]Although its true that many are riding this dead horse.. My friend's personal experience is that his S6 (a little more than a year old) have been overheating and draining (battery power) like crazy recently. Of course he is not eligible for any warranty because it's over a year. When you complain they don't even entertain you. To me, if I spent money on one of these top end devices it should work for more than a year.... it's just scary putting a device near my face with the news and personal experiences.
The news about Note7 other phones and now even about "exploding washing machines" are becoming increasingly boring... How long will you ride this dead horse... There were issue with Note 7 which affected like 0.001% of customers, hence recall was issued. Nobody said there were 2,5 million faulty phones, they just been recalled as precaution and I really value "Samsung courage" for doing it, no matter how financially damaging it was (something apple will never have). And that is it we should forget about it now.. but media and fraudsters now trying to play this story every time something made by Samsung goes bust, no matter if it was actually faulty or it happens to be placed in burning car. Just enough!

Everyone should know by now it is SDI(battery manufacturer) manufacturing side in the fault not Samsung. ATL manufactured battery have no problem in Note7. The same way how Apple A9 chipset manufactured by Samsung perform poorly compare to the one manufactured by TSMC. You wouldn't go around blaming Apple directly instead of Samsung wouldn't you? Same thing apply here.
