Bunyip22, 02 Sep 2016No recall in Australia yet but i won't be selling my GN4 in a hurry given the rumors of a reca... moreI wouldn't take the chance, better wait for the next Note, for the meantime, I will tick with my 64GB Note 5.
Guys read this and be alert:
Might as well stick to safety than features.
Note 5 is better.
Looks like a worldwide recall is on the horizon for Note 7 http://www.theverge.com/2016/9/1/12759912/samsung-galaxy-note-7-recall
What a pity it's a good looking phone but obviously was rushed to market by Sammy.

I suspect the problem is limited to a few batteries but we will see. I certainly wouldn't be using a non genuine charger and won't be using the micro USB - UBC-C adapter.
Savor, 01 Sep 2016Damn it, Samsung! A recall because of exploding batteries! I am not stuck picking an INFER... morehow many batteries do you know have exploded? That was one lousy report of One guy usinh a cheap cable, come on
Note_User, 02 Sep 2016Bigggggggg!!!! disappointment. Get up Samsung..Look around the world..you will find that you... morealways the same, cant buy the phone, then starts whinning against it, lol, thousands like you!
Get up Samsung..Look around the world..you will find that you are far behind the others with respect to general specifications of mobile world and pricing the sets to kill itself..
We have never expected that without proper QC, Samsung starts dreaming to control the World.
Immediately do something or match NOTE 7 price with Spec...remember fresh Apple is coming soon to make people healthy.. Good Luck
Like a famous beer publicity goes, this is probably the best smartphone in the world at the moment, beautiful design, IP68 even when using stylus pen, HDR, curved edges yet more ergonomic than the S7 Edge. The iris scanner is cool too, while the finger print scanner is still with us, so more options to utilise for locking and safety.
In my humble opinion, Sammy could have opted for a bigger battery though (although this one isn`t small) considering the workload and 5.7 awesome screen - damn even Apple is considering introducing curved edges and its still lagging behind super amoled stuff, as Samsung picture is still the wow eye catching winner even for a tv nowadays, maybe the exception stands with the Mac pc.
Anyway back to the battery subject. While I appreciate that for a glass/metal unibody design (apart from being sealed - IP68) its difficult, one can consider access to the battery in some way going forward, as I`m tad concerned about the longevity, and it would be a waste to just stamp an expiry date on it (few years?) and have it replaced by the then Note9 or 10 (?), also considering the high-end price tag (cc EUR850!); moreover I believe that fast/quick charging will finally have its toll on it too.
Then again maybe that`s how things work in business, if not Notes would just stop here at the Note 7. Companies will always give you an excuse or an incentive to replace your present device and forget about all its original wowness, and similar to the cars` sector, prices fall quickly.
Opinions welcome :)
disapointed, 01 Sep 2016Note 7 is a nice phone, But Samsung forgets that the software is more important. Removing kno... moreThats mean it has been discontinued darling. Live with it. No one wants it except for some poor people looking for an old flagship at a cheap price.
the best smartphone and i havent any problem with my battery it is good
LG G5? My LG G2 is better than the G5. Honestly Samsung is on top right now. I wish they had double tap to wake and sleep like LG though.
Note 7 is a nice phone, But Samsung forgets that the software is more important.
Removing know features from the previous Note line such as Action Memo or S finder.
makes the "Note" "S pen" not useful. how many times does someone need to translate a word? how many times does someone need to write under water?
Samsung has no tradition, no backwards compatibility , and no respect to users.
each time they change everything , and delete very useful features.
This phone is a big disappointment. not only because of hardware missing IR Blaster. But mainly Software.
Microsoft has respect to users, you can still open old WORD documents in new Word versions!
Samsung removes application, and have no backward compatibility!
No Tradition, and no respect to customers.The main goal is sell a product and move to the next one, as if the older one was never there. All the old concepts are erased.
You can also see this reflected in Samsung Mobile youtube channels all old device videos were removed. as if they never sold note 3 note 4 or galaxy s4 s5. nothing.
I told myself not to buy sammy phones ever again after having used s1-s4. I must admit sammy new phones are gud! Dam it! I dont want to go back on my words. Lol I have been using LG but LG is slacking!
Right, 31 Aug 2016Yah its the case in exynos variant but only few cases,don't worry Samsung will fix itMine did that last night. I had just restarted it because it was laggy and then it prompted me to enter a password to start the device - I had no idea what the password was referring to. Boatload ear was opened and then froze. Managed to open the OS again but them went back to asking for the password.
Returned to retailer and replacement given.
