absolut-allen, 06 Sep 2016You shoot fireworks off at Christmas?Fireworks are often exploded on christmas in several countries, I know that's the case in South and Central America

Samsung has just made it official that the exploding Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are a real problem which according to their research and reports, may happen to one in every 42,000 units. Samsung Mobiles president Koh also stated that they have so far found 35 incidents around the world in which the Note 7 had shown signs of excessive heating, catching fire or even exploding while being charged. In light of these incidents, the smartphone will be recalled all around the world as a safety measure and as expected, sales have stopped for now as well.
The battery related problem will perhaps be solved by the South Korean giant over time, but a MASSIVE DAMAGE has already been done. The exploding smartphones have not only put a blemish on an otherwise perfect series of Note devices, but the bad reputation will definitely affect the sales of Samsung smartphones in general.
I just had a visit at my carrier's store, and they have no idea when new stocks of Note7s are coming. News of a local Samsung center advised a September 19 release.
This is all good to return a potential hazardous defective device, and being replaced. Apparently, I can cancel my entire contract if I want to. There's no immediate replacement or loan unit, and so I'll be using the Note7 with a few precautions:
1. Charge with a powerbank that has an auto off after it reaches full charge - Xiaomi is one. Use with original Type C cable.
2. Do not charge while on heavy use like Hotspot or gaming.
3. Install battery monitors like GSam that has alarms if it is overheating, overcurrent.
4. Do not use fast charging or any form of wireless charging as they contribute extra heat.
5. Charge little chunks instead of one long charge after a deep discharge. It's less stressful for the battery.
6. Keep the Note7 away from combustible material like paper, and best keep it on a concrete floor while charging with a powerbank. It's not a good idea to be charging it while it's in your pocket.
7. Use the original Type C cable and not use fast charging.
Looks like I need to wait two weeks before I get my replacement. Stay safe everyone.
Christmas is just a few months away so this phone can be used for "explosive" firework shows, though an expensive one to that.
PARAG B, 06 Sep 2016yeh but only in your full of assumption and imaginary world.which is backed by the justificati... moreWithout any figures of Samsung's sales of Note.5s, you have ASSUMED that the Note.5 was successful? They have stopped selling the Note.5 right away after even just news of the Note7 was coming out. If it really was the right formula with NO microSD slot, why even BOTHER putting in the feature of a memory expansion for the Note7?! Water-resistance, bigger battery, better camera, more features, memory expansion? Not better than the Note7?
Note.5 128GB never made it on sale outside South Korea so stop insinuating that it was sold everywhere. 64GB had very limited sales market, and 64GB is not enough for people like me who would like to use a lot more space for media to maximize the use of a device, or else it's becomes a hassle to always be using OTG dongles.
Why would you bother even even saying you are getting the Note7 if the NOTE.5 is "the most successful in the entire Note line up"? You complain about not having to be able to see all the screen because of the curved edge, you think the camera is lower quality despite being regarded as the BEST performing by experts?
Do us a big favor and just tell us you ARE NOT getting the Note7 at all, and be done with it.
Bunyip22, 05 Sep 2016True but it wasn't successful sales wise and had lots of complaints.
yeh but only in your full of assumption and imaginary world.which is backed by the justification of your note7 purchase.Lol.grow up.
Note5 was the most successfull in the entire Note line up it is still a wonderfull purchase.plus it does have 64 and 128gb versions .just cause your country had only 32gb version of note5 does not mean that it was not succesfull in the entire world.
Rezeart KAJA, 05 Sep 2016OK if I have old news give me a new nems abuot note 7.Samsung covering a 'heart breaking amount' for Note7 replacement. 70% of the Galaxy Note7 battery units were supplied by Samsung SDI Co., while the remaining were provided by Chinese battery maker Amperex Technology. That is what you call news.

Very disappointed! It doesn't have voice-to-text feature and this is what I loved about my Note 3. I used voice-to-text for everything: messages, email, notes for shopping lists, online searches etc. Why do they take away a great feature for an improved product? It's just what they did with Note 5. They took out the memory feature - SIM card on Note 5. If I bought it I wouldn't be able to transfer my pictures!
Now I am back to typing - which is slow and time consuming- especially on the go. I used to be able to think of something I needed, go to notes,add the item w/i seconds.
As for the battery recall, I am not surprised. My Note 7 has gotten very hot at times which concerned me from the start. I would definitely NOT recommend it.

Julliard, 05 Sep 2016You could had told us that like a hundred years later. You are so late on the news.OK if I have old news give me a new nems abuot note 7.
Rezeart KAJA, 05 Sep 2016This smartphone has a battery problem You could had told us that like a hundred years later. You are so late on the news.
exactly I have S6 Edge+ and I love it and I'm a S line fan not Note so I'll wait for the S8 edge :)
The funny fact is that I'm a Samsung fanatic and after hearing Note7 exploding I'm about to just stick with my Note5 or get a iPhone 7 I'm not trying to get a phone that explodes so good job Samsung you lost a Note7 order.
Equinox Hydroid, 05 Sep 2016But they didn't announce that they will recall its unitsTrue but it wasn't successful sales wise and had lots of complaints.
