    Looks like there were quite a few explosive notes. Samsung is gearing up for mass recall

    No issues here, nor temperature increase while charging. I hope i dont have to go through the hassle of a mandatory recall.

    Here either. I don't want to deal with this. My phone's been flawless from day one.

    Buddy of mine got one. He's had no issues either. I let him know about the potential recall.

    All he said was he wouldn't mind getting a fresh one in a couple of months if they have units to replace the recalled ones.

    I didn't read the article linked in the OP, but one I read earlier said they think it only affects like .1 or .01% of devices shipped. I haven't been keeping a CLOSE eye on the situation, but also sounds like they've only had reports of them exploding in Asia, so hopefully the US units are fine.

    No issues here, doesn't even get warm during heavy use/charging like my S6 did...

    Supposedly it's only 1 out of 42,000. And none in the US so far. But it doesn't add up. With that small a number a 100% recall seems drastic. So I think it might be worse than they're letting on.

    Same here. They discovered something they're not sharing.

    Maybe that they need to add more ram and a faster chipset so it can actually multi-task faster than an iPhone 4...

    LG recalled a smartwatch and took it off the market over a POSSIBLE flaw that wasn't even something possibly dangerous to the user. Fear of frivolous lawsuits causes all kinds of strange behavior . I'm thinking it's just they have 0 clue how many potential battery bombs are in the wild. With Samsung the left hand has no clue what the right hand is doing and often won't even admit the right hand exists.

    If I remember right, that watch hadn't actually started shipping yet. I'm pretty sure only review units had shipped & they pulled it from market before ever actually shipping one to a customer.

    While similar, this is definitely a bigger deal.

    Yeah...this is much bigger than Samsung is actually saying.... but our phones appear to be acting properly besides mine does get a little toasty when I use my Anker portable battery pack.

    Toss that pack for use with the Note, my Note doesn't even get warm with the stock fast charger.
    I'm not worried or concerned, but will accept a freshy, as long as I'm not expecting to mail it back first.
