STOP using quick charging!
Amid this controversy of exploding Note7 while charging, I am not convinced that it is the battery that's at fault. It's likely using third-party USB Type-C cables with embedded chip regulators are being damaged with adaptive quick chargers. http://youtu.be/ujaapnnNzsQ
This results to faulty voltage going in to the device. At least that's how I am understanding the video.
The point is, just STOP using quick charge, even with adaptive charger, ESPECIALLY with third-party cables. I've only used quick charge ONCE for a 50% charge to test how fast it can be with the Note7. I do not believe in quick charging as it damages the battery faster over time, as I have been saying throughout my numerous posts.
disapointed, 01 Sep 2016Note 7 is a nice phone, But Samsung forgets that the software is more important.
Removing kno... moreNote 7 has better and improved software than all previous phones which they call grace ui.
Just because you don't use S pen doesn't make it useless.
In note 7,they have brought new features=
Iris scanner,dual edge screen,HDR,water proof,expandable storage,cgg5,a lot more improved s pen,dust proof,always on display with better features,great gpu,great ram and rom,great chipset,better battery type(li-po) and better battery optimization,same cameras of S7E with improved camera software,fast charging,SpO2,wireless cahrging,type c charging.
I think these features are enough.
Nick.B, 01 Sep 2016Is the SoC Snapdragon 821 more energy efficient then it's 820 big brother ?Newer version always has batter specs. than previous one.
You haven't told a new thing.
Dnc, 31 Aug 20167 Key dissapointment (samsung Note 7).
2.poor battery life 3500mah... moreMost of the phones have non removable battery so its not a very big deal.
3500 mAh battery life is good and 5000 mAh battery is great.
It has a good battery(2000 mAh/2500 mAh battery is bad).
Clock speed matters(a little bit) but ram,chipset and gpu matters a lot and note 7 has great ram,chipset and gpu.
Radio and ir blaster are not very improtant features.It has great featues like iris,fingerprint,water and dust proof,etc.
Camera depends on mp but mp are not everything in camera.
Note 7 has better cameras than a9.It is the thing not present in specs but can be seen in real life experiments.
e.g=12 mp of s7 is a lot better than 16 mp of s6.
Yeah!I agree with you in price.It is of 850$ but it has features which should be present in 850$ phone.
Iphones have many disadvantages but are priced more than 950$.
Without having great features.
I want to have a new Samsung galaxy note 7 but because of battery issue I don't want to have that anymore.
PARAG B, 02 Sep 2016dude cameras on lg g5 is anytime better than of s7 ,s7 edge and Note7.
rest of the specs are ... moreIn reviews of experts and critics,it is said that note 7 is a lot better than lg g5.
In review of GSMArena,note 7 got 4.8 points while g5 got 4.5 points out of 5.
In cons of g5 in GSMArena,it is written that its camera needs an improvement and also battery and screen.
Dual camera does not ensure that camera and photos will be better.
e.g=In p9,dual camera setup is installed but it cannot match camera quality of even note 5.
If you see with open eyes,you will see it has great features and everyone(experts) are saying that it is best phone in market right now.
Only phone which can be compared to note 7 is S7E.
recalls all note 7 unite from world markets due to battery fault...
this is good new from samsung...i am very huge lover of samsung mobiles...using all S and Note Series from start.... I proud to be User of Samsung........waiting for new slot of Note 7.
anasela, 02 Sep 2016Worldwide Galaxy Note7 recall due to reports of battery explotions? That's a bad news from Samsung.Isn't that a good news? They replacing your dangerous Note7 with a safe Note7. You don't want that? Suits yourself. At least you know the reason why you die early if explosion the last thing you see. Anyone stubborn enough not wanting to return their Note7 to Samsung is a fool. I gladly returned mine.
PARAG B, 02 Sep 2016Dude dont simply assume what i think. Lol
9mp 4.3 (note7) < 16mp 16.9 (note5) photos and... moreI will explain it really simply for those who struggle with basic technology.
- The 12MP 4:3 GN7 camera is better than the 16MP 16:9 GN5 (see gsma's review, daylight, lowlight, video, hdr)
- The GN7 4:3 12MP photo is 4032x3024.
- The GN7 16:9 9MP photo is 4032x2268 (there is NO QUALITY LOSS they simply cut pixels along the top and bottom to get a 16:9 image ratio).
i.e. the GN7 9MP (16:9) photo has IDENTICAL image quality to the GN7 12MP photo and is therefore better than the GN5 16MP (16:9). The GSMarena review and samples don't lie.
PARAG B, 02 Sep 2016Dude dont simply assume what i think. Lol
9mp 4.3 (note7) < 16mp 16.9 (note5) photos and... moreAlways skip a generation (or two) with electronics. The Note 7 isn't enough of a technological bump to justify buying from Note 5.
Note 8 for me - I'll buy late though because Samsung's obsession with beating Apple is screwing consumers and flaring up batteries.

9mp 4.3 (note7) < 16mp 16.9 (note5) photos and videos..
Although the selfie cam on Note7 is a bit better than my Note5.
LGV20 is expected to have great specs with a great camera lets see what LG brings to the table but if rumors are true it will beat the sh!t out of Note7.
& With all of this battery explode thing of Note7 chances of me leaning towards the LG V20 is getting higher day by day.
i was eagerly waited for note 7 but finally got delayed due to battery issue its very bad news
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Samsung Galaxy S7 same phone difference of size and pen
It is blender
Worldwide Galaxy Note7 recall due to reports of battery explotions? That's a bad news from Samsung.

I believe they had engaged bljelight mode reduction, and likely didnt have the dynamic profile set to auto brightness (the only method to get the 1000nit brightness as measured in displaymate webpages rundown).
for some reason review posters on gsmarena do not monitor the threads for questions.... a few being raised after their rapid review rushed out the door on product launch.
it could do with a few updates, and answers to benchmarking questions for the different audio chipsets etc..
