Poll results: Will you be canceling your Note 7 order?

Poll results: Will you be canceling your Note 7 order?
Samsung issued a total recall on the Galaxy Note 7 production units that have been shipped so far, saying that it is putting the phone's orders on hold, and at the same time collecting existing phones to determine which batches have been affected by the rogue battery cells that have slipped through the supply line quality checks. That is why we asked you last week if you are planning to cancel your pending Note 7 order, but more than half of our respondents said no, which bodes well for the Note 7 sales after the recall works its way through the system in the next few weeks. 

Samsung owned up to the problem, saying that out of about a million units moved so far, just 24 have been identified as problematic, yet everyone who owns one will receive a brand new replacement if they wish in a voluntary swap. Still, for those who preordered, and are waiting on their shiny Blue Coral version to arrive, the announcement that the shipments are placed on hold to isolate the troublesome batch, and take it out of circulation must be pretty disappointing. 

The Note 7 had its official launch in Europe pegged for September 2, for instance, but now it seems that it will be moved down the line, possibly with a couple of weeks even. Still, it looks like potential owners don't mind waiting a bit longer until the issue gets resolved.

So now everyone on this site has pre-ordered the Note 7? Lol It is pretty obvious that Samsung fans voted no and their haters voted yes, when the majority of both camps didn't even pre-order it.

That's how most of the polls are on this site are. Fanboys and haters inflate the number of votes a device scores in PA's polls.

My dude, you hit the nail on the head lol. All those yes votes, are from haters, trying to stuff the ballot box lol. Mine runs top notch, and I'm keeping it, till I see different. I'm all in with the Note 7. Now get me my Frontier.

Ot goes both ways my friend, Samsung fans aren't helping either. Anyways, I am glad you're loving your phone, and next time you better take my advice, told you to not buy the S2 and wait for the S3 :D

I'll wait for the original N8. Which has the flat front and flat rear and has tapering edges than curves. Also its wider like the original Note. This curvy ugly S7E with S-pen features is not a NOTE phone.

I do not see any reason to cancel if you actually liked the phone. Replacements will have no issues. Even problematic units, thank god, didm't caused anyone any serious damage. New battery and they arr back in game. Anyone who would wait for V20 or iPhone 7s should not have pre ordered them earlier.

This could be a opportunity to get a decent deal. I wouldn't be surprised if we see something amazing near iPhone release. By then the updated phones will be in stock. Just don't pay full cost because Samsung is going to have refurbs galore. The resale value is shot to hell.
