Results: would you buy the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note FE?
by Preslav Kateliev / May 18, 2017, 9:27 AM
In terms of hardware and appearance — the FE is pretty much the same phone, sans the battery, which will hopefully be much more stable. So, it's still a top-notch phablet, for sure, and that curved glass design is definitely not getting old anytime soon.
As for price, it is speculated that the Note FE will don a price-tag that's about %30 lower than the Note 7's. This would mean about $520 - $550, if the phone hits the US market. If this all turns out to be true, would you buy the Galaxy Note FE?
If given the chance, would you buy the Galaxy Note FE?
Nope, especially not that close to the Note 8's launch

Sure... I'd love to have this Note "F-ing Explosive" limited edition phone... but, I doubt it will get world-wide release :-/

Considering the possible Airline f**kery that would take place trying to designate which version of the Note 7 someone owns, I'd say no global release is a good thing. The last thing I need is another delayed take-off.

Not sure about the US but Canadian airlines stopped the announcement shortly after the full recall. Outside of this, nobody inspects any phones during check-in even during the peak period of note 7 issues.

I would love to going back to my Note 7. I miss my pen. It come sin so handy with the work I have to do. When I dont want to carry a larger tablet around to sites, I can bring up my PDF floor-plans, make camera locations and POS equipment location on a drawing, make notations and then when I get back to my desk, pull it up and continue to complete the changes. The S8 is a beautiful phone, but its not the Note. I'd buy the Note 7 anytime. My wife misses hers too. And she has had more S models than me. She too says she misses having the pen. She actually likes the S8 more than I do. But if the phone is only gonna be released in Asian locations, what are the chances of being able to change the UI language. Because eon my wife's phone, I get hers to Filipino/Tagalog, but not everything changes. Most of the UI is still in English. The note 7, surely looks better than the next iPhones that are coming is, rumors are 100% correct. Which they likely are!

I think Samsung should just roll the Note and S release together. And just make 3 phones. The Galaxy S, the Galaxy S Plus and the Galaxy S Pro. The Pro would come with the S-Pen, while the other 2 would be what they are now. $750 for the base S, $800 for the S+ and $850 for the S Pro. Sized at 5.5, 6.2 and 6.4. The base should be QHD, the + @ QHD+ and the Pro @ 4K/4k+ Then push the release schedule to be right at the same time the iPhone comes out.

They could release all together but then they lose hype of a new phone after a few months . Keeping the S line and the Note line apart by 5 or 6 months is a very good strategy IMO. 2 big launch events an years keeps the brand awareness quite high all the time

Technically if they did in fact fix the problem, maybe it's called Fire Extinguished or Fire Excluded. Either way, Samsung is pretty stupid if they really did use the "FE" model name to distinguish these refurbished Notes.

No thanks, I'm perfectly happy with my note7 classic. Though I would love to be able to update the phone without rendering it a paperweight. But I imagine that even if it did come to the US it'll probably have something in the code to destroy a classic note 7 anyways

Of course I would. I didn't have any overheating issues in the first place. I wasn't even going to send mine back until I was forced to. In fact, we were instructed to send the first one back, which we got a replacement, and it worked better than the first one. I never had any problems with either. The only true issue I had was the IR chip was removed so you can use it as a remote control for your TV anymore. If the Note 8 doesn't have it, I won't be purchasing another smartphone from Samsung again.
