    There's not millions out there left... only 2.5 million originally sold and if 80% have been returned means at most 500k left world wide. And some percentage of those are like the one at my house, powered off waiting to be returned

    Now if the issue was such a small and innocuous one there wouldn't have been 2 recalls and the measures taken with this second recall and the special boxes being used. There is an inherent problem with the phone. There has to be or these things wouldn't be done.

    Other phones have had batteries explode or caught fire. They were wrote off as isolated incidents. With the Note there was more. A deeper issues that hasn't been reported that made Samsung react the way they did. Just because there haven't been reports of fires does not mean the issue is not real or still there, just with fewer being used there's less chance for a problem to arise.

    To keep saying it's some kind of corporate espionage is kind of silly. There is/was a real problem with this phone.

    Not sure I can agree with you, jstafford1. Only 35 reported cases in the first batch of which 27 of those could not be confirmed a N7 problem. Only 5 reported in the second batch and none confirmed to be the N7. The million that are still "actively" in use is based on recent report. (I'll have to find it). Samsung was being proactive with the first and second batch with their recall. CSPC followed suit. And believe me, the CSPC has ignored recalling products that should have been recalled and recalled products that shouldn't have. This wouldn't be the first time.

    Why, when other phones had problems with fire were they considered isolated incidents and Samsung's weren't? I don't think it has to do with the number of incidents but more to do with the media attention it received.

    The problem lays with those that listen to the lies, and eat it up because they are scared of life. I'm not scared of life, but will return the phone when it's rendered unusable. I believe Samsung killed the device because they knew whatever is behind the failures wouldn't stop until they killed it... And look it stopped.

    I can't wait to see what the next step is to force these phones from us.

    Only thing they can really do is have carriers blacklist the device.

    Absofreakinlutely! The ONLY reason Sammy did the recall on the second batch was to save face due to the overwhelming pressure from the media. (Social, print, online & tv) This was blown so far out of proportion, one can't help but think corporate espionage along with overblown social media reports, played a major role in all of this. The media has made people afraid of their own shadow, I REFUSE to live like that! There have been no confirmed cases that the second batch of reported fires were legitimate. None. The majority of people who reported their device catching fire the first time refused to return their device to Samsung to have it evaluated. Yet the iPhone 7 has had reported cases of it catching fire, but nobody cares. I thought "one fire is too many"?
    F that! I call complete and total BS on the whole thing. Sure, the first batch MIGHT have had a legitimate issue. The second batch, not so much. People were looking for a pay day plain and simple.

    Don't leave Google out of the barrel, their Pixel wouldn't have gotten half of its users if it weren't for the Note...
    One of the reasons I stuck with Samsung with the S7-edge, on this whole thing was to NOT support any other manufacturers...

    I'll take mine back when I can walk into best buy and switch it for a Verizon V20.
