you guys really think this will end samsung electronics?? that's funny... even if samsung shuts down it's mobility division, still it has a lot to offer in the name of SOC, flash memory, screen, etc... also it has other businesses too so it's almost impossible to kill this huge company afterall it alone is responsible for over 10℅ of country's GDP n that's insane...
Where are the Samsung slaves? I remember being told here Samsung it was Apple controlling the media and these people who claim fire are setting Sammy up.
I think this is the start of downfall of Samsung.
You see Nokia only takes 2 years to slump. At that time there are just less than 5 phones manufacturers and even Apple is not strong enough and yet Nokia can almost go bankrupt.
Today, there are more than 20 manufacturers alone. Many people will never go back to Samsung brand except for some diehard Samsung fans and fanboys.
You can even see for yourself that the media hated Samsung so much and wanted Samsung to go bankrupt as soon as tomorrow.
I dont think Samsung can survive this round. Even their customer service turns good to bad. It's like a 360 degree change!
Yes, there might still be around with profits coming from washing machines or airconds but certainly not smartphones.
HTC and Sony is still around because they never makes mistakes. So, at least people still trust them.
In smartphone business, once you made a mistake, you are gone.
GSMA, under the GN7 battery > advanced settings you can turn off the 60% battery restriction and lift the limit to 80%.
Really Samsung had no choice given the issues and publicity.
I love my GN7 (especially the camera) but will be getting a refund as the software will never get updates... I will go back to my GN4 or use the S7.
Hopefully Samsung is working on a GN8 (with dual camera) but don't mess it up by rushing it. I would like to see a flat screen version without the rolled edges.
RIP Note 7, looking forward for Note 8. Wish Samsung has learned a BIG lesson from this, and come back with beautiful safe strong products.
R.I.P Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Lucky, I use Sony Xperia Z5 no problem.
AnonD-12245, 12 Oct 2016Wow, how many units caught fire? 36? out of how many millions? sure it is a flaw , but the med... moreAs always trying to over blow things. I do not think Samsung is ruined think of all the car recalls and here in UK? Beko has had terrible press with some of their products going up in flames but all are still here.
Samsung should issue a statement on its outcome but introducing a third party to inspect the Note 7 may not be possible due to Samsung patents i.e. another company getting to the bottom of what caused the fault will have to inspect all the diagrams and electronics which Sammy may not be allowed to agree too.
Wow, how many units caught fire? 36? out of how many millions? sure it is a flaw , but the media exaggerate it too much.
I'm very sad about these news :( , i was waiting for long time to upgrade to the note 7 .now i guess I'm gonna wait for the note 8
This was supposed to be the Galaxy Note6. By skipping the devil number, this "Note7" became cursed from the fires of hell and by an Apple-biased media firestorm.
With Samsung and LG making too many badly timed mistakes, I know am forced to get an iPhone specifically the SE which ironically offers the best value at half the cost. Surprising coming from Apple. I got to live with the 1.2MP front camera but the space gray does look better than the matte black 7 which still smudges. Doesn't have a camera hump and looks to be the final iPhone with headphone jack. Also considering a Xiaomi Redmi 3 Prime for $160.
What a sham from Shamesung. But anyhoo, $17B in losses in something they can handle. If this was HTC, they would be completely wiped out and probably wouldn't announce anything and sweep it under the rug. People should check out that ColdFusion video on YouTube about Samsung. They are much bigger than you assume. They don't just make phones, TVs, and appliances. Samsung just needs to learn from their mistakes. Maybe layoff the 4K displays, metal frames with generate heat, fast SoC, and bring back removable battery.
If you think about, it isn't that sad of a story. We learn more from failures than successes. I was actually more sad when the Sega Dreamcast and webOS died. This is actually a blessing in disguise for Samsung and for all consumers for the future. Instead of rushing phones, packing so much heat with QHD displays, hot SoC, metal frames, VR, and super fast charging, maybe we need to reevaluate what we want from phones and what devices Samsung should make for us.
Sometimes we all need to be careful what we wish for. A 1-2 second difference opening apps is no big deal to most people. Patience is probably more needed in tech for all of us.
