I love how the source is another Tech Blog that has no source of its claims...
Samsung has produced too many smartphones between last year and now, ranging from j1 to z0, I think they should take it easy and build on perfection. Competiting with Apple may cost them much damage and loss. I wish you quick bouncing back!
Everybody is talking about battery.
It is not the real problem.
Battery is fine.
It is confirmed by the second batch of
phones with replaced batteries witch caught fire.
The problem is a design flaw of the case.
In some circumstances at a mechanical stress (bend/pressure)it shorten the battery and/or motherboard.
When Samsung acknowledge that is beyond any fix (only by completely redesigning
the case/motherboard)they stop production.
All I can say is "you're the best" to head managers from the departments:Design/Test/QC.
Which manage to f**k-up in such a way
that is beyond repair.
I-fixit will be acquired by Samsung soon
because they notice the screw witch goes thru battery into the motherboard.
Shamesung short story...
I-fixit...oh no...still fire....stop production....stop....stop

As a proud owner of s4 and s6 I have to admit even apple couldn't made worse, how it is possible to fail so badly? What a helm is going on with Samsung????
hari panther87, 11 Oct 2016why the samsung skip note 6 any one ?Here's what GSMarena headquarters believe in: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsungs_next_phablet_will_be_called_galaxy_note_7_instead_of_note_6_new_report_claims-news-18408.php
[deleted post]not garbage... samsung is only produce hardware (and bloatware, off course) like others... in smart... its clear enough the real player in smartphone world only google, apple and microsoft that designing hardware and OS...
Lex79, 11 Oct 2016Agreed the Note 4 was the best in the perhaps now dead Note series (I highly doubt the line ca... moreTrue, but i think Samsung did this because when people compared iphone with Note 4, one was total metal, the other was platic or plastic metal, and they just hated their phones called "cheap plastic". Their phones feel premium now , but it came at the expense of features like removable battery.
So much for all the comments regarding how note7 was infinetly superior to the new iphone
I'm glad that Samsung had the balls to take the right decision. Now they should work the problem, list the tessons learned and apply them in every PM track.
Let's hope that they will handle all current and pending owners with regards knowing that most of them are still believes. Maybe it's time to stop thinking that a product lifecycle is limited to only one year and to stop thinking that you can reinvent the business each year...
Let's also hope the employees won't get sacked unnecessary.
I guess Samsung had no choice.
But my question is, What is exactly wrong with the Note 7?? Which part, I mean?
Zach, 11 Oct 2016I'll give you a Note with 7 points why Samsung should have gone with a removable battery: 1... moreYou skipped #6, just like Samsung. Bad luck man! I see your point, but I think you are overestimate people. Sure, some of them are smart enough to notice the battery swelling, but a lot of them won't. A lot of people just buy them and use them not caring much about what's going on inside of it. And then we have some real dummies, like that dude in US, who left the phone in full sun, on the dashboard of his car, charging. That aside, yeah...I see your point, especially the one that's missing ;)
Sad news, I was looking forward to grab a safe unit when sales started again in my country.. welp that's at least 4-5 months more without a working phone.
