    You don't bring your tires on an airliner do you? Bad comparison in my opinion.

    I would like to thank everyone who is participating in this thread for keeping things civil. It looks to be an emotionally charged problem and yet y'all have been cool about things. Pro or anti, it's good to see a good debate going on and I hope it stays that way.
    Thank you all again.

    Support Our Troops!!!

    I think the debate ends at safety. A car tire can blow and cause you to lose control, but you're still in a box designed to protect you. Having a phone in your pocket, or your nightstand that can cause you severe burns or even burn your house down is a whole different animal. If I had bought one, it would be going back without question. It's a shame they couldn't catch this in pre production, it's going to haunt them for years to come. Bad day for competition, we all lose from this mistake.

    I think it's a great lesson for manufacturers.

    No matter how big you are, if think you you are too big to fail and start cutting corners and giving us bs excuses social media will eat away all your billions.

    I'm waiting for next apple commercial where they flaunt their "safe" phone :)

    I dropped it getting in my car, I'd say only about two foot from the ground. It cracked weird though like it hit a tiny rock, but I found no rocks. There's a central dot an inch above the home button and it just spiders out from there. Literally like 4 legs on each side going up, to the side, and down.

    Samsung announced permanent end to note 7 production. Shares dropped 8% in one day and wiped out $17 billion in value.

    I know what I'm buying today. Samsung will recover this quickly.
