Jack Hobbs, 23 Jan 2017This is what you get on built in battery's, don't care what or how good specs are on a phone, ... moreWow another illogical removable battery fanatic. The note 7's battery was poorly manufactured, period. It had nothing to do with it being non user replaceable. Get over yourself.
This is what you get on built in battery's, don't care what or how good specs are on a phone, removable battery's are a must, note 7 would still be a no. 1 Flagship still today if it had this option, still they shove out over priced phones and cross there fingers it won't happen again, will they learn? Neh, won't be long and they be down this road again!
Stay safe people, stay away from Samsung....
They dont care about quality, only mass production, most aggresive marketing, and sales.
IronHeart8, 23 Jan 2017Doubt it each & every battery of each & every upcoming Samsung phone will go through s... moreThey probably do random batch check. I dun think they are checking every single battery, as long as the design is the same there shouldn't be any problem. I doubt other manufacturers check every phones and batteries for detailed stuff too.

Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017i agree. in all companies, they only take few batteries for testing purpose. not all of it.They test a few batteries out of every batch. It makes no sense to test every battery, as all batteries within a batch generally come with the same set of issues. This is Engineering 101 for those of you who are not engineers...
AhmedH, 23 Jan 2017I personally find this very unlikely, same issue twice with different battery and yet they cla... moreThe report that said the battery compartment was too small causing unnecessary stress on the battery i believe that one. They are just scapegoating. If the s8 does not end up thicker I'd be worried.

sr777, 23 Jan 2017Now the cause is identified, why don't they restart selling Note 7 with new batteries? Even sm... moreBecause there are still some Note 7s that weren't returned. If those explode then Samsung will look bad again. Now if those explode they can say they are recalled.
Samsung should have had these quality checks long ago b4 the Note 7 fiasco...
Even the Galaxy S7 series has quality issues...ppl reporting water damage after immersing the phone in water for 2 mins...the phone dies...check YouTube...lots of ppl are crying...
& Samsung says"water resistance for upto 30 mins in 1,5m deep in water"...lies,lies and more lies.
F*ck Samsung...this company deceives ppl
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017If battery is reason, why not change a safe battery and sell n7 again at $400?Fool me twice ...
Not many people will buy it the 3rd time.
They better make sure that their next flagships are gonna be safe. They're already charging a small fortune for them.
I personally find this very unlikely, same issue twice with different battery and yet they claim that different issue with the batteries just happened to lead to the same disaster! I don't believe in coincidence that much. I smell some deal there and probably that is what took that much time for Samsung to come "clean". At least the battery company owners sure made a good fortune out of this.

I am laughing, 23 Jan 2017I'll never buy Samsung's low quality phone especially after the Note 7. Samsung's phones are d... moreI particularly don't like Samsung phones (I like the S6 Edge btw) but as far as quality is concerned, they have improved so much. I am actually a Nokia fan and I am proud of their phone's quality, but N7's quality is also top notch and quite sturdy enough. Best of luck for Samsung's S8 and long live to my beloved brand (Nokia).!
