Samsung ensures Galaxy S7 owners that their smartphones are safe and not subjected to a recall

To prevent confusion among its customers, Samsung is now sending push messages to Galaxy S7 (and S7 edge, presumably) units ensuring their owners that their smartphones are not subjected to a recall and can be used as normal...

Being paranoid keeps you alive, just sayin.

Alive in fear, living in fear is barely living at all.

Being the normal amount of paranoid and living in fear are two very different things man. If you live in fear then you probably have some kind of paranoid disorder. I was simply saying there are things that you should be paranoid about and that it might just keep you alive to do so. I would be paranoid about falling asleep with a Note 7 charging right next to me, wouldn't you?

Except this isn't about the N7, but the S7..... Samsung literally sold a billion phones the last 3 years, almost a billion that were not affected by this issue. They sold more than 3 billion (let that number sink in for a second) mobile batteries the past 3 years, also to be used in devices from other brands. If people using those devices that are not called Note 7, feel fear.... then yes, by definition they suffer from paranoia.

Whatever man, I don't suffer from paranoia but I sure as hell don't charge my iPhone right next to me that's for sure. It's called being safe not paranoia. I don't even think you know what paranoia is because it's literally a mental condition. To be afraid of something isn't the same thing as being paranoid about it.

BTW that last sentence is wrong, they wouldn't suffer from paranoia if they lived in fear but anxiety. Ha you say by definition but you don't even know the definition lol.https://www.google.com/search?espv=2&biw=1280&bih=659&q=paranoia+definition&oq=paranoia+&gs_l=serp.1.1.0i67k1l3j0j0i131k1j0j0i67k1j0l3.649.649.0.1936.1.1.0.0.0.0.194.194.0j1.1.0....0...1c.1.64.serp..0.1.192.MkbJGEqIvJ0 for refrenace here it is.

No, it's not. The delusion here is that people suffering from the fear described above, think that Samsung in't truthful when they say there's nothing to fear with the S7 (or other Samsung phones for that matter), thus willingly risking/trying to harm them. "feeling extremely nervous and worried because you believe that other people do not like you or are trying to harm you" Which as explained, is nonsense. The "whatever man" was your best rebuttal so far.

Dude your whole argument has been based around people being paranoid when you didn't even know the definition of the word. You just said this "feeling extremely nervous and worried because you believe that other people do not like you or are trying to harm you" That isn't paranoia that is anxiety man, when you're worried and afraid it's anxiety not paranoia. You might as well just stop replying because you're just making yourself look more and more like an idiot who has no idea what they are talking about.

You should consider a career as a comedian because you introduced the word "paranoid" into this discussion and used it quite "liberally" yourself. And now you want to play the semantics game? Your ultimate downfall came here though: "That isn't paranoia that is anxiety man" Except that I took it literally from the Oxford dictionary:http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/paranoid You're arguing with yourself here and the dictionary. Good luck.

Let me guess, you're one of the guys who think all Muslims are terrorists?

what does muslims have to do this idiot. Terrorrism has no religion. Just to defend samsung fanboys like you can go to any extent by insulting others and their religion.

If you're stupid enough to not understand analogies, then we have nothing to discuss. Geez, you didn't even understand anything about what I said.

Totally, his reply is one of the most "WTF?" replies I have ever seen in this site.

Well, that's reassuring I guess? Having to put the kibosh on a hard ware line doesn't do the rest of your hardware any favors I'm not hating on them or speaking on behalf of Apple either.

Yeah it was for the best for the consumer, but how about fixing the brand image?

Until Samsung and the carriers put a block on it. Dude, turn it in or you will have a $1000 brick on your hand!

heard that before again and again with the Note 7 debacle. trust is lost with Samsung...

hope for the best though, because people usually remember the brand rather than just the specific model. Pumping S7 more might just give them inventory issue due to customer already gone to other brand because S7, which unlike Note7 with its S-Pen, is just like another phone in the market.
