    ...which only matters if the phone is determined to be the cause of the damage. Any damage from any other cause would still be covered, even if you had a Note 7 in the house at the time it happened.

    But I don't officially own it anymore, as it's been replaced with the S7-edge ...

    I don't get people holding onto known defective products.

    Not every device is defective. How many have you heard having issues since? Zero.

    There was a very very very small percentage of devices reported to have "issues" even less turned over for full inspection.

    Do you know how many items in your home have known defects and issues? The world is full of defective parts (and people) until Samsung can tell me definitively that there was in fact an issue I will keep my device. They are doing all of this recall stuff solely because of people creating a frenzy over some crap they saw online.

    Maybe we start creating a frenzy about people eating so much fast food and exploding and this country will take a good turn to not being the most obese place on the planet.....

    Not a single one. This is still (hands down) the best device on the market.
    I only wish I would've picked one up for myself when I had the chance.

    5 out of 2,500,000 + what percentage is that..
    The screwball media has inflamed and destroyed another, maybe they should be rejected and sent back?
    Great point Mustang, wish I'd thought of that sooner.

    Yep, I'd done the math some time ago, but we can't do everything for people around here, some things they need to do for themselves or they don't learn.
    That's for this and other posts...

    Sometimes true. In this case, it is driving home a point of absurdity; 5 out of 2,500,000 or 0.00002%. Same thing but doing the math might not give the absurdity it's true justice.

    I still can't help but think what a total shame and total farce this was. Of the minscule few devices that supposedly caught fire, we don't even know for sure that those cases were legitimate. And since the recall, of the millions that are still out there being used, not a single report of fire.

    Maybe Samsung should release their next Note several months before iPhone's release. Maybe iPhone sales won't feel so threatened where they have to remove the competition.
