Mul... moreNote 4 is great indeed but its outdated comparing to note 7 but we have to wait to see S8 and note 8 as am also was planning to get the note 7 but i will keep on my S6 edge plus for a while to see whats up next.
Nobody should buy this phone anymore. It is always the risk of it to explode and you will have more trouble to send it and receive it again than just buying an other phone
AnonD-183089, 10 Oct 2016Its officialy now guys samsung halted the note 7 production!!!!!!! :(As much as I want to keep using a Note7, the integrity of it not exploding is diminishing. Multiple replaced units exploding are getting too widespread now. I lost money in buying 2 cases and D Brand skin that's still on its way to me. At least it gave me 45 days of usage - camera, S Pen, and amazing vibrant screen are totally top notch.
I'm relieved that I still have my Note 3 with 10,000 mAh extended battery to use.
I do hope this triggers the next Galaxies back with removable batteries. I absolutely do not see the logic of sealed batteries, except for water-resistance - which I've never even tested.
And that glass back idea is still so silly.
Now I'm looking into the possibility of getting a brand new Note 4, and a 10,000 mAh extended battery for it.
AnonD-183089, 10 Oct 2016Its officialy now guys samsung halted the note 7 production!!!!!!! :(Halted. I dont expect a relaunch any sooner. It is better if they fix it for real and relaunch with the launch of S8 next year. Double flagship launch would be great. Lets set the time around March. No rush. April is even better. Like seriously, no rush at all. Master the art of perfection first Samsung!
Its officialy now guys samsung halted the note 7 production!!!!!!! :(
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2016Yeah that's what you got for under estimating the power of Note 5 against Note 7.
Note 5 stil... moreNote.5 is still UNDERWHELMING with NO memory expansion. I'm better off with a Note 4 with the SAME S Pen pressure level of 2048, and I can extend the battery 3 times so I don't need to carry around a power bank.
Having to charge the Note7 before going home was one of the downside of having to put up with sealed battery. I use an average 180% of battery charge daily, since I can use up to 10 hours SOT use.
Seems it's not battery nor the battery cell they believed.. it's something else which is causing the issue. Which needs to be examined. But they already lost the game! K.O. and RIP
And they shouldn't rush to early release of S8 or N8 at all like people saying. They can take their time to do proper R&D and testing in every way possible before launch.
Also don't forget to roll back the features specially removable battery, sd card, FM, IR, Wide angle camera.
And put stereo speakers. And make it the full package. Because upto Note 4 you never compromised with features particularly for Note series.
Best of luck for future.
Shhhh! Nokia is coming back! Be careful lol!!!
[deleted post]Confucius say 'person who laughs last, thinks slowest'...
Having an older phone that works and laughing at another person with an older phone that works? Sure.
That the person tried their best to update it? What is the issue!?
Having an older phone.. didn't you chastise the 'plastic backed' phone users when you got that 'premium note 5'; yet you had issue when a better phone came out and kept picking on it...
So now your phone brand has stuffed up again and you feel great..?
Just don't think you have credibility, that your voice has any value..
Attacking people who contribute worthwhile comments whilst yours are the lowest levels of batship crazy? Opinions are often worth what we pay for them (yours and mine being given free are therefore worthless)
Maybe I miss the value in your pointless bickering, dericiveness etc..

No one cares when your comments get deleted, shame you give nothing of value to a community of which you try to belong....
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 09 Oct 2016Yes. I have powered down and retired my Note7. I have placed back my 128 GB microSD card to my... moreYeah that's what you got for under estimating the power of Note 5 against Note 7.
Note 5 still lives while your Note 7 is already a safety issue.
I often travel via airplane, and I can confidently use my 64GB Note 5 while thousands of feet above the ground. While your Note 7 is left behind where it belongs, INCINERATOR. LOL!
Looks like I'll never have the safe Note7. Note 4 or Note.5 available for $25 monthly... I'll get the one with a memory expansion...
Savor , 10 Oct 2016Breaking news: Samsung has now suspended production of the Note7.
Listen, people can love ... moreTrue. Note 7 pulled down Samsung.
Not Note 5, not S6.
Note 7 is the black sheep.
Safety is more important.
I will never upgrade to Note 7, I will keep my premium 64GB Note 5.
At least it is safe and 64GB is more than enough for my apps, it's camera is not far from the best.
At the end Note 5 still rules!
Breaking news: Samsung has now suspended production of the Note7.
Listen, people can love it. That's all on you. That's your prerogative. But you have to choose between your selfish pleasures which might reek of arrogance, denial, and irresponsibility or your safety and anyone or anything around it? Get busy living. These stories are NOT FAKE. That's ypur denial of enjoying it so much speaking to you. Samsung wouldn't halt production if these stories were fake.
I really wanted this phone. Samsung just had to break our hearts by rushing it to the market to beat Apple and Quality Assurance wasn't up to par. Skip all the flagships this year. The 2017 flagships are the ones worth waiting for. I just hope these burning issues don't carryover to the S8 and Note8 but it might like what happened with the LG bootloops. Will never trust Samsung again after this debacle..
Motorola (a Lenovo company)
Nokia (former king)
LG (because they still offer removable batteries)
The rest don't matter to me. I might never look at a Samsung phone again. Not even their foldable display technology. They innovate but don't care about quality. Patience is a virtue in tech and they lack that. Rush rush rush just to beat Apple. The stupidity on their part. Samsung wants to throw as much crap on the wall to see what sticks. I hope this is the end for sealed batteries for them, then maybe I would reconsider. For 2017, LG G6 or V30 if they finally have common sense to pack a larger battery. That's their main Achilles this year.
AnonD-595414, 09 Oct 2016I've been really sceptical about these explosions but now I'm disappointed that the Note7 may ... moreShare the same thoughts. Been waiting for the Note 7 since August 19, but then issues happened. What I'm gonna do is to get me an S7 Edge for almost half of its price (brand new) then once S8 has been released, will be selling it then go for the S8. Well, that's just me. S7 Edge is the Note 7 minus Iris Scanner/USB Type C and others.
The Last Best Device of the Note Series that remains in the History will be Note 4. It has no complaints till date.
Then Came Note 5, and the S Pen Issue.
Then Came Note 7 Skipping the Number 6.. And It is really pathetic to know that it will be exiled, even before its official release in Indian Sub Continent, due to Exploding Batteries of the Recalled Replaced Units too.
Here is the Source Link that says so:
SGN7 Production Comes to A Halt
I am typing from My Note 4.
This is all bad karma for Samsung. They rushed without quality assurance. They tried to play Apple's game of planned obsolescence with sealed batteries. Four incidents including the Southwest evacuation has now happened in the U.S. with the "safe" Note7. It is over for the Note7. Samsung is no longer telling us anything.
I love people still supporting this phone. Such irresponsible arrogance on their part. If we knew how to prevent it from happening, I would understand. But we can't. It can burn up randomly. Just because it didn't happen to you doesn't mean it can't happen to someone else who is sitting near you. Return the Note7 and get another phone. Be doing everyone a favor.
I said to myself, screw it. I don't want any 2016 flagship. All a waste of money for these 2 year throwaways. For a good price, get an iPhone SE for $450 which still is faster than every 2016 Android flagship out there at double the cost. For me, I will pick up a $50 ZTE Zmax 2. It might be crap but it won't burn on me and has that rare feature of removable battery.
Note7 = waste of money. Burn your pocket, your hands, and anything around it. Most flagships over $500 are that way. Avoid buying expensive phones and giving into these brands' brainwashing on you to buy something you don't need and becomes disposal after a couple of years. ZTE Zmax 2 ftw! $49.99.. Nothing to lose. I own five other phones anyway.
The last few news hours paint a pretty strong picture for the future of this phone.
I do understand how one unchecked news source can be quoted by everyone, so one incidence wasn't 'enough' to go by and pack this phone up...
The quoted sms accidently sent metioning tactics like 'slow him down'... is pretty screwy. Samsung might be 'somewhat' forced to follow financial direction suggestions and split lines and areas of operations.. damn.
Note 7 is a nice phone.
My first one, I trusted, even with recall notices, I would have been happy to have kept it.
Knowing they can issue a software flash that makes the phone a brick, my time with Samsung (and their low SAR) seems likely over.
Will have to find a fair replacement; makes me feel like my symbian/psion days of having a seperate computer/organiser to my telephone...
Perhaps my tablet becomes my organiser etc and my phone- heaven forbid- is an actual phone. My favorite phones were always tradesmen models (tough) you could throw at your feet when hitting cafes'.
The Note 7 was the closest to a small (vs my note edge) phone that had it all, including as 'extras', the best screen, camera and audio. Whilst my tablet has a pen, the draw straight to screen feature with the s-pen (even with the screen off) is something that a dollar notebook and pencil might have to takeover.
If a one box 'best' no longer is an option, then seperates I will do.
Seperate audio player and amp, seperate organiser and a small phone.
Just when I had got use to 'one box to rule them all'- using kevo locks and NFC chip bank card payments I could literally leave home with just my phone. (My drivers licence sits with my phone in its case.. most other 'rewards cards' can be made digital and stored on the phone. Leaving home with one 'toy' (no keys and wallet) makes me feel free as a child! (In my country children have freedom, just to clarify)
