An infinitesimal percentage have. All the evidence I need is the phone in my hand, though the reviews help.

Risking your life over infinity small chance is still not worth it. Especially when you already know it might happen. It's like saying you have tumor but you are not going to get treatment, even though it has an infinitly small chance of turning into a stage 3 cancer. Not worth it IMO.

It can happen to ANY phone with a lithium chemistry battery. Tell you what, you worry about your phone, I'll worry about mine. In a couple of weeks, the point will be moot.

TechiXP is still holding two of his explosive Note 7. He's a hardcore Samsung fan.

Didn't he post that he ordered 3 more or something? And he's calling everyone else blind sheep.

Yup, he said he ordered 3. Wonder where tedkord is at as well. Hopefully they return their phones.

Note 7's explode gate is way worse than all of the past iPhone issues combined no matter how much Samsung fanboys try to defend Samsung.

How is that when still no one died because of this issue ? And not even serious injuries .. While we know that a chinese girl died when she was charging her iphone and a man died when his iphone 5 cought fire while charging it over night.. not to mention serious injuries because of exploded iphones Can you think a little bit before posting a comment ?

Except the minor detail that Samsung acknowledged fault and gives full refund where the Apple method is as follows: - step one: silence - step two: silence - step three (too much media attention by this point): denial - step four: only a handful of devices affected, they have been/will be fixed, non issue - step five: oh there's more, but it's user error - step six: secretly fix the design error - step seven: deny repairs of the original design out of warranty, despite internal acknowledgement of step six Thank god the iPhones haven't had a battery issue like this, with the above in mind.

Keep telling yourself that. The difference is that within a month, it'll be resolved, unlike any of those iPhone issues.

Well obviously it caught fire that's why there's a recall lol but all jokes aside that's why i returned mine. Better to be safe than sorry.

It's sad when this could've been avoided with better testing prior to release, pathetic to rush out a half baked product.

Glad I waited to get a new phone. Guess it will be either the new nexus phone or the iphone.

I have made previous posts on other articles saying I have a T-Mobile Note 7 and its made in China so more than likely the battery is safe. Well I spoke to the nearest T-Mobile store (25 miles away) today to get the low down on the situation. They told me last week a T-mobile phone in Massachusetts exploded. All T-Mobile USA stores were sent a picture and told to strongly encourage customers to exchange their Note 7s. Needless to say this has changed my mind and I will be exchanging my Note 7 for a new safe one. I love the Note 7.

A Tmo N7 went up in flames at a Tmo store in Missouri as well. There's a thread on it over at Android Central.

PA you should change your rating right away.

Lol that will upset all of the hardcore Samsung fans like TechieXP who believe Samsung is the best in everything.

That's a good point. Despite everything else being great...if you have a phone that is under a massive global recall, that phone should no longer have the old review score, before the issue was known. Wipe it out or cut it in half. The worst offenders in this regard was Android Authority. They updated their "Best of 2016" only a few days ago (after the recall was already underway)...just to include the Note 7 as one of the best Android phones available right now. Ummm. No. Silly things is...the Amazon link they provide to buy the N7, is of course, dead. Brilliant guys.

Why would they do that? The base their reviews on their experience with the phone.
