Samsung Galaxy S-plosion. Now with S-Battery. It's super hot right now!
Harper Scout, 12 Oct 2016I believe it's Because of the Processor. The US Market all use Quallacom Processor, Yet other ... moreLG G5, OnePlus 3, HTC 10 and Sony Xperia X Performance don't even explode so your conclusion is invalid.
I bet the fast and wireless charging has something to do with these explosions.
Well atleast now if an iphone catchs a fire, sammy fans can now clearly state that Apple stole it from Samsung hahah.
Samsung be like iphone just release around perfect flawless 5 phones a year and not 5 phones every month
I think it's due to the construction of the phone itself. The width shrink n phone become compact with everything squeeze inside which leave little space for cooling. Might be too much for it to handle. A little more into R&D might solve it.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2016There will be a new 7 and 8 and 9 don't worry , Sammy will still make their Zillions $$$ Trouble is there is after all this comotion ppl will have moved on,and rightly so,so in ya dreams,no more note series END OFF !
Note7 = the best smartphone that died too soon..
But what you rather have? Your safety and everyone's or a phone's life? It's just a phone. Disposal things.
I am really not that sad about it. I felt more sad when webOS died. Or when the Sega Drramcast died prematurely and the Sony PS Vita is close to the coffin. At least webOS, Dreamcast, and PS Vita lived a couple of years for people to enjoy them. Not dead after a couple of months that could harm owners out of the blue.
Jarret, 12 Oct 2016Pity of Samsung. Note7 - the best phablet in 2016 was kept in smartphone historyThere will be a new 7 and 8 and 9 don't worry , Sammy will still make their Zillions $$$

Samsung could make a battery with it's own protection and send it out to users.

In the second case, you are true.
The problem is not the battery, the problem is in the smartphone's construction; it is impossible that 2 batteries from 2 manufactures puts on the same hardware make the same damage.
Pity of Samsung. Note7 - the best phablet in 2016 was kept in smartphone history
Bunyip22, 12 Oct 2016I guess what they are saying is if the problem was only the battery then it is a very simple p... moreMost people are dumb, sheeple. That's why they don't care about if the battery is non-removable and planned obsolescence.
Non-removable battery does NOT mean higher battery capacity. As removable battery does NOT excludes higher capacity. Moreover, if the battery is removable, you can replace it to a bigger, higher capacity extended battery like ZeroLemon's 3x bigger batteries.

Not looking for a name and blame here gsmarena... Please get us the technical issue in battery catching fire and not who made what!
mir, 12 Oct 2016You do realize that the Note 7 actually has a very different design to the regular S7 right? T... moreIt happened because Samsung sdi weren't competitive and weren't able to make things to spec. This is because they mainly relied on Samsung for business and previously only made removable batteries, and they weren't competitive in making the new non-removable batteries.
The issue with the Chinese provider is said to be something else, something which hasn't been specified.
