I was very thankful I didn't downgrade my SAFE Note 5 to UNSAFE Note 7.
I can still enjoy travelling on a plane with my phone.
Taking photographs of scenery above the ground, listening to my favorite music files, playing games.
No worry with my 64GB Note 5.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2016US Government has banned carrying any Note 7 on any flight even in power off mode. I bought No... moreReports say Note 7 ban in flights will be imposed from next week, not from today or tomorrow. So it should be okay for this week. When you land immediately contact nearby official Samsung store or customer care and they should return you money. Or somehow (via mail, phone or visit there) contact their head office customer service. Also mention your circumstance there. If you still fail to do that, throw the battery out before your return flight.
When did you buy it? You shouldn't have bought it after 35 reports of exploding. Remember one thing, Samsung sucks. I hate Samsung androids from long ago. And now I see another reason to dislike this brand.
I think S6 edge plus would be a good choice right now, price has immensely gone down after the release of S7 series. I'm seriously looking forward to it.
Samsung can you guys release note 7 agai with higher 4x2.5GHz mongoose & 4x1.8GHz cortex-A53. Solve the issue first and let it be available on january 2017
AnonD-597859, 15 Oct 2016I suggest u buy the Xiaomi mi 5 its incredibleI rather choice apple, samsung or oppo device than that
Hope this design wll apply to S8 Edge. 5.5 inch Amoled UHD display, 600ppi and dual camera with dual pixel 16mp & 8mp in front. With new exynos 9 quad-core 3.0GHz Mongoose & quad-core 2.3GHz Cortex-A73. With Mali-G71. Battery of 3900mAh
AnonD-597829, 14 Oct 2016That proves I'm right and the battery explodes only in America, not in the Asian market. Anoth... moreofficial tallies of 92 incidents in the US, plus at least 17 in Korea, 1 in Taiwan and 2 in Australia.)
i think the problem is only in snapdragon processor and the explosion only in this processor and there is not any problem in exynos
AnonD-520389, 14 Oct 2016got your lesson, shamesung?? better start making phones which have a removable battery, FM rad... moreand if they added the radio & SD card slot (which already added) the phones won't explode??! :D
there were explosion accidents of galaxy s4 while charging also back in 2013 and it had a removable battery! ;)
AnonD-597666, 14 Oct 2016Buy htc 10, it is perfectI suggest u buy the Xiaomi mi 5 its incredible
US Government has banned carrying any Note 7 on any flight even in power off mode. I bought Note 7 in Dubai and came to US for a visit. Now what do I do? Samsung US no one is bothered to help as its not a US device and I cannot fly out of US with this device. So basically Samsung expects you to bin $800 phone and treat it as mistake of a customer for having bought a Note 7. Insider job or otherwise, Forum please see how Samsung is treating its loyal customers who bought top of the line premium phone.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2016Yes, it does feel like a conspiracy to discredit Samsung. Most (all?) incidents seem to origin... moreIt is a conspiracy, an inside job or phenomenal incompetance on the part of Samsung. These things just dont happen. I am no Samsung fan, but Samsung knows its trade and makes some "far out" phones. I am a Sony guy, but exploding non removable batts are not Samsungs forte. Modern phones have overload protection, as you have pointed out. The Note 7 is not a whole world away from the S7 or Note 5 or any other phones. A poorly performing phone with teething troubles is one thing, not an exploding one. Li ions have been around for years and the Dell and Toshiba incidents were in the eay days. A lot of work has gone into making batts safe. Even oven like iPads and HPs havent suffered this fate. Think of a high end Europen or Japanese luxury car that explodes each time you crank the engine. internal combustion engines are not Improvised explosive devices. A faulty airbag or fuel line or brake, maybe. But an exploding engine. No Way. Or does Samsung source batts from GS Yuasa, ( remember the 787 dreamliner fires ) Hope Samsung sets the competition on FIRE!! This is a North Korean attack on South Korea. Samsung should get a PI to get to the bottom of this.
Just recall the Note7 from The bloody US.
Let the rest of the countries continue using the Note7.
Others have no issue with this incredible set.
Plsss do not recall the sets from the others.
Is there any fresh incidebt lately???
Millions are still using your Note 7 without any incidents.

AnonD-597829, 14 Oct 2016The more I dig into this issue, it looks like an insider job caused this due to the shrinking ... moreYes, it does feel like a conspiracy to discredit Samsung. Most (all?) incidents seem to originate from US locations or US airlines and reported by US media. Modern devices usually have overload circuit protection to cut off the battery if there is any problem so it's very suspicious to me. This could be some kind of economic war between nations / tech giants. I'm waiting for further clarification from Samsung
