    IMO bottom line is safety and I know peeps love their Notes but no way do I recommend keeping a phone that will have that asterisk over it everywhere you go ....I think Sammy will send OTA to it eventually to limit phone and force total recall ....no pun intended...plus resale value will be none ...another thing to think about for those that look to upgrade and sell their phones ...time to return and go to plan B folks

    This is so disappointing. I was waiting to finish off paying on one phone (on the 20th of this month) to get the N7. Guess I'll have to wait for the N8.

    My confidence in Samsung is as strong as it ever was. I think they have handled this well and probably much more responsibly than most manufacturers would.

    This is like that Firestone Tire Recall years Back that were coming apart. Its unfortunate this happened to such a Prestigious Phone Line. This will Tarnish the Samsung Phones for a While till they get back on track making Killer SAFE Phones again. I am glad I skipped the Note 7 cause my wife hates when I get new Phones and this would have meant getting another one within months and More Accessories like I always do. So far I was Good with my Moto Z Force and Only Bought the Incipio OffGrid Moto Mod and a New USB C cable for my Charger. Maybe I will go back to a Note Series Phone when they release the Note X until then my Moto Z Force has been Awesome.

    And? Note 7 is dead does that mean Samsung is? No.

    Firestone had something similar. BP had a huge oil spill, both companies are alive and prospering.

    It's funny you make the comparison to the Firestone issue. I'm sure there are no problems with Firestone tires now. But to this day I refuse to buy Firestone tires. That recall and major issues at that time is firmly embedded in my brain. The same will be true with many many consumers regarding all Samsung phones going forward. Sales will suffer. Resale value will suffer. This is a major black eye for Samsung.

    This may be true but Don't count on Samsung making some pretty big offers to win Customers Back. Maybe even better than the Samsung Promo they had last year for the Holidays!

    If it comes down to it I'll go back to my Note 4 and wait for the next device with an S pen or S pen like object built in.

    New battery for my Note4 was under $22. The S View cover is beat all to snot but I think I've got at least another year before the hinge at the edge breaks. By then the dust from this fiasco should be settled and a bunch of other models by other manufacturers will be out as well in case.
