    We now have 3 confirmed "Safe" Galaxy Note 7 explosions. Today there was a new explosion in Kentucky. Industry analysts are predicting a second Note 7 recall. Now it appears that Samsung has temporarily suspended the production of new Galaxy Note 7 devices. This report comes from Korea's Yonhap News which had this to say.

    The Australian carrier Telstra has also reported that Samsung has stopped the supply of Note 7 devices and had this to say:

    So we have good and bad news. Samsung is confident that their replacement devices are safe, and they are delaying replacement devices to make sure this is true. This means if you have not received your replacement device you may not get it for a while. That kind of stings. I just shipped my recalled Note 7 back Friday. Maybe Samsung will ship back a Galaxy S8 instead!

    I know there was an article recently where Samsung has still profited and that this recall was nothing more than "a drop in the water" for them, but this could really leave them with a bad image. Units blowing up that are supposedly deemed safe, now it's going to seem like Samsung had rushed a fix.

    I feel safe with my s7 edge, but I'd be lying if I didn't say the thought of it exploding didn't cross my mind.

    It's sad to see this. Manufacturers need to take the time to resolve a serious issue of this caliber. Instead of the Note 7 being the King of Smartphones it has become the Joker. I'm glad I went with the Moto Z Force. Maybe skipping the Note 6 Name Jinxed it.

    Only way we'll be replacing ours is with the Note 8!

    And yet people still think the Pixel is overpriced... For that price I'd prefer knowing my phone won't blow up in my pocket, just saying...

    This is a tough one. Note 4 owner myself but man I have serious trust issues with Samsung over this. Might have to sit out a few Galaxy iterations before I trust their Quality Control procedures again.

    What makes me hesitant about sending my note 7 back in is that I upgraded to this phone to get this phone. I waited months to get THIS phone and paid over $800 to pay my s6 edge plus(x2) off.

    If I'm changing phones, they are going to put me back in an s6 edge plus or s7 edge, but with no payment plan.... This is NOT my fault.

    Please make this right Samsung!

    I love my Note 7 and the numbers are so against it happening to me I'm not worried. If it does I'll get another the odds of getting 2 that explode are ridiculous.

    As of right now. If it were to happen, I don't think that you will be getting a new one. If something were to happen to your Note, outside of a battery failure, I'm not sure you would even get a refurb.

    I'm seriously doubting the Note 7 makes another production run at this point. They probably will just issue a recall / refund and try again on the next iteration.

    This is how I see things going as well.... the Note 7 is DOA... we all need to protect ourselves and find something safe until Samsung gets their ducks in a row..
