    If Samsung does a total recall, with no fix options, at some point I will return the phone, due to the lack of resale etc.
    I don't see any Android phone out there now with the specs, options, that I like to replace it.
    So we will see what transpires.

    Wow. What a bunch of negative nancies.... Tires explode every day on the highway in the 10's of 1,000's but I don't see anyone boycotting tires or sending them back.

    How many here smoke? Smoking is far far more of a risk than a couple of Note 7's melting down..

    Now I'm not saying that something isn't happening but I think that social media and technology people, who lets face it are mainly Apple people are making this much bigger than it is..

    You can't tell me that with the huge recall its not possible that a few devices didn't get passed through as good..

    I also have seen no proof these were in fact the new safe units. Plus I want to see the software update that showed whether or not a device had the new battery. What are they using as a factor to open up the green battery....

    There are still far far to many unanswered questions and variables to be freaking out this bad.

    Samsung is a HUGE HUGE reputable company there is no way they are not doing everything possible to save the Note series and its name.

    So for me I will not give up this device until it implodes. And then I will look for another.

    Again I'd like to see full reports on all details of all units. What were the deeper more common factors? Charging wireless with a case? High CPU apps? Perhaps there is something else causing this.

    Maybe if they hadn't skipped the note 6 this wouldn't have happened...

    on a serious note though, glad I didn't spring for this device. Too bad it was an android device, now those apple sheep will have one more thing to say about ALL android devices, even if it's not ALL android devices.

    I'm not dumping it, mine is prefect.
    But if they recall it, with no trade back, and no software support, it's not worth the $, and will go back, for a phone I can sell in the future.

    You do have a good point.... I think my funky mood is because I love this phone and don't want to give it up. I would only be happy with Galaxy S7 edge.... or maybe MAYBE a Galaxy S7.... I'm taking a woosa period this week and going to keep an eye on the reports.... we shall see how this unfolds..

    I walked the Verizon store this morning and really didn't see anything that I wanted other than the S7 Edge and surprise surprise they were out of stock...

    For me I need the pen. And when I say need I mean really really really love it. I use it daily for notes and other editing. There isn't a device out there interests me. Only thing I'd consider even remotely is an iPhone with the ipencil but it would have to be greatly discounted or free.

    I stand by my Note 7 and will use it until it dies. Once that happens if I can't get another 7 I'll go back to my Note 4 or possibly a 5. But I will stay with the Note series.

    I'd only get it if way cheap, as the new one is coming out in months... Maybe the i.... ;)

    Welp, I just cracked my Note 7 screen bad yesterday. That's the first time I've ever cracked any screen before. At least now I can return it for free. :p
