I was hesitant to write this because for many this has gone on long enough but after reading through last night's thread (Breaking News - Samsung issues Note 7's official death note in the US) I was curious myself on the latest regarding all the reports. Because as of mid October we either stopped hearing of reports or tuned it out. So I did some digging of all the reported incidents (that I could fine) as well as the conclusions as reported. Now this is not meant to incite further back and forth or take any sides. I am just going to report the facts as gather through my search through Google. If there are any updates that you would like to share we can add it if it is meant to help provide closure to some of these open incidents. So here are the facts I managed to gather below: On September 5th of 2016 a man reported that the Note 7 was responsible for his Jeep catching fire but it was actually later ruled as not definitive that the phone was the culprit by St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue (Samsung Galaxy Note7 May Not Have Caused St. Pete Fire, Officials Say) this is incident is still under investigation. September 6th of 2016 A house in Horry county was burned down due to suspected Note 7 catching fire. No update in that story found (Recalled Samsung Note 7 possible cause of Horry County house fire) September 12 2016 a 6 year old is burned playing with a Note 7. This was later ruled not to be a Note 7 but another Samsung device (Samsung Blows Up in NYC Kid's Hand, Grandpa Says) October 5th 2016 a Samsung Note 7 caught fire onboard a Southwest aircraft no further reports have come out in regard to that issue (U.S. regulators investigate replacement Note 7 that caught fire aboard a plane). Note 7 caught on video smoking in China was ruled to be the result of the charger (Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replacement phone caught fire on Southwest flight) Samsung Note 7 burns teen's leg in Minnesota (Replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 burns Minn. teen) no update to that as the phone was returned. October 10th 2016 Note 7 catches fire on Virginia resident's nightstand (Richmond, VA man's replacement Note 7 blows up inches from his head) last thing reported was Samsung representative flew out to investigate. December 7 teardown of device reveal suspected cause for the fire incidents (Galaxy Note 7 Design Flaw Was Responsible for Battery Problems That Followed) In conclusion to me looking into the incidents it looked like there were several early reports of Note 7 fires/incidents that ended up not being a result of the phone, others that are still in investigation, and some that we just do not have a conclusion to. What we do know is that Samsung did issue an official "expanded voluntary (on the manufacturers part) recall" (last updated 12/7/2016) and to increase participation they will issue an update preventing the phone from charging (Galaxy Note7 Safety Recall and Exchange Program) and in cooperation with the CPSC (Samsung Expands Recall of Galaxy Note7 Smartphones Based on Additional Incidents with Replacement Phones; Serious Fire and Burn Hazards). So the recall is not "mandatory" but basically Samsung is going to do everything in their power to make sure all with the note 7 participates. I will update this page with facts that I find going forward. Thanks and hopefully this helps sort facts from feelings.
