What I see is a company that still has a major crush on Apple and has screwed their own customer base over it. They took features out of the 5, glass back (like iPhone did) and now exploding batteries.
Then you look at their advertising campaign always comparing themselves to iPhone, poking fun at iPhone - they are obsessed with iPhone!
After fixing the issues with Note 5, I don't see any other reason to upgrade other than the SD. Let's see if Samsung can be their own company instead of crushing on Apple and I'll check it out next year.
Initially i wanted to upgrade from note 4 to NOTE7 The only thing that stopped me was not the fact that the battery catches fire, it is the propitiatory charging port. Why no MicroUsb? Why they change well accepted standards?
If they would have made this phone with removable battery, the could just recall the battery and save billions.... I just don't get Samsung! Note 4 was almost perfect why they want to take away from that.

And please, don't ask how would anyone in know if they are the new safe batch...
While the kiddies are laughing, still don't understand the meaning of
REPLACEMENT, and seem want to pay only $300 for old stock that possibly might explode, Samsung is making the effort to reach out.
I can understand the work of producing millions of Note7, having to ship them out to exchange the defective ones. I already turned off mine to be safe from burns.
I have no sympathy if Samsung takes an even worse fall THAN from what they did with the S6 and Note.5 with no memory expansion and taking out features we enjoyed before. It serves as a lesson to Samsung and other companies to always check.
You got turned off from getting or owning the Note7 even after the corrections to the batteries have been done? Good riddance. Go get the shiny competition's products.
But for those going to use this after swapping to the safe units, we get the better features smartphone on the planet, and this one has an S Pen, a headphone jack and wasn't designed to make more money out of accessories with the silliest looks.
DenimAsh2, 14 Sep 2016Is it true samsung is planning to cut the note 7s battery by 40% to prevent overheating?It was rumoured to be happening to a Korean update.... Not sure sure about other countries.. The simple way to avoid is to not update your software.
Once the fixed note 7s are available I will exchange mine. Until then I have turned off fast charge and am accepting that there is a minute risk something may happen. (driving a car has a higher risk)
I have had mine for a month without any case or screen protection. It doesn't have the slighted mark on it for anyone who is interested. Before I exchange it I will see how hard it is to scratch on my pocket

I'm not a Samsung Fanboy, but based on it's competitors on the market, it is still the one to beat. I've considered iPhone 7 Plus and LG V20, but features on Note 7 still is the best so far for me. Positive outweighs the negative and I definitely won't be settling for less. I'm willing to wait till it's safe to buy again.

When Samsung tries to copy Lumia 950 (xl), i.e. by including iris scanner, using USB type C, fast charging, etc. Now they want to roll out update to correct the issue at hand. They better stick to what they know, and stop copying Microsoft and Iphone
DenimAsh2, 14 Sep 2016Is it true samsung is planning to cut the note 7s battery by 40% to prevent overheating?60%
Now all companies must produce phones with removable batteries.This is alone solution.Phones with non removable batteries are shit only.
DenimAsh2, 14 Sep 2016Is it true samsung is planning to cut the note 7s battery by 40% to prevent overheating?Its not going to reduce the battery capacity. Is is putting a software update for existing note 7 that are already out to limit them from charging more than 60% to prevent the phones from overheating and encourage the people to hand in their potentially faulty note 7's.

Asking $300 for getting one tells us you don't put value for other people's hard work. You want a semi-free ride.
