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.
Relent, 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)
The best Note made by Samsung was the Note 4.Battery removable, great camera, slot for micro sd and the best?: none exploded..
zahirdost, 09 Oct 2016Go for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Best Phone Ever...Welcome to your opinion. And that phone will become outdated in a few more months.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2016Even a powered down Note7 can explode. Get that thing out of your house. Bury it in the ground... moreYes, getting rid of it by tomorrow.
Note 4 and Note.5 are being offered at extremely low plans for $25 cash out. Hehe, guess which I'll choose?
Today another exploded replaced device and AT&T stopped selling the note 7 and offered to replace the phone with another samsung device or another brands
I think as a result samsung will stop selling this phone to save its goodwill and an early S8 release is expected!
Really sooo sad i love this device

Restored connection to my smart and reset up my Spotify music. Just waiting for the go to return it. Somehow, my telco agent needs to ask "special permission" to cancel my account.
Being back with my Note 3 means I'm back with 10,000mAh extended battery, which means no need charging at the middle of my day despite heavy use.
I'll miss the better responsive S Pen, camera... for a month or two.

zahirdost, 09 Oct 2016Go for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Best Phone Ever...There is no best phone ever !! There is no perfect phone.. just grap what do u want .. what is fit your job ..
If samsung offers me a note 7 for only 150$ i wont buy it .... nowadays every note7 user feels like he/she is the unlucky user .. its just a curse .. samsung should take all note 7 from markwts and replaced the users with new note5 .. and we dont forget the remain price . If samsung will just go to the abyss
