Report: Samsung to issue a recall for the Galaxy Note 7; defective battery is to blame?

How quickly has the sky fallen on Samsung? Two weeks ago, the company was basking in the success of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch, which was reflected a few days later by the company's stock making an all-time high. Demand for the phone was crushing supply, and it appeared that Samsung was about to continue the momentum it earned earlier this year with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge...

Yeah, maybe it's a way of generating hits due to people repeatedly coming back to argue?

I feel the samsung defender army are closing in. BTW you desperate attempt to get the green thumps up is pathetic. Always posting comment that will give him the highest number of green thumps from sammy boys. Now back to the topic : Samsung is pathetic. They release a phone without properly testing one of the most important parts of the phone, the parts that could potentially harm you physically if the part is defective. Third class company third class testing facilities. The good part at least they are doing the right thing now. Still they should have done that in the first place.

That's what trolls usually do, so that they could link problems of the past/present for trolling in the future.

I couldn't care less about the green thumbs, don't go out accusing people of what you do. Also, every other OEM's QC except Samsung's is perfect, right? They check every single one of them, right? ALL of the Note 7s out there have defective batteries, right? When Apple has issues you guys tell trolls they're exaggerating, now you're doing it, hypocrite.

Stop pretending that you care less about green thumps here. You exist here only for the green thumps. You only post comment for green thumbs. Green thumps wh*re.

I didn't know that, so you know more about me than myself? You must be a mutant! WOW!! Funny how you instantly get a green thumb the instant you post.

Green thumps wh*re now acting innocent. Green thumps wh*re can't stand other people getting the green thumps so he usually accuses people of upvoting his own comment when people like the comment he hates. Your desperate attempt to gain credibility and acceptance on a on online forum is pathetic. You attempt to represent yourself as the most unbiased people here and in the process of getting the most green thumps is sad and pathetic. You must a real loser in real life.

I wish Samsung the best. But, it's clear the Note 7 isn't the phone for me.

LOLOLOL if this were Apple, Phone Arena would have had a melt down with the number of Apple hating people here posting cheerful messages of how great their Samsung's quality is.

this could be motivated by politics, considering relationship tension with South Korea, there's undeniable the conspiracy that China does it on purpose. Ask suppliers to put defective battery on every Samsung device. China is technically a monopoly of the Smartphone world and every OEMs need to listen what we say

Your idolization of China is cute, really too bad public defecation is still accepted over there or I would assume you were huffing paint first before huffing human feces.
