Samsung explains why some Galaxy Note 7 batteries tend to blow up

It appears that some batteries inside the Galaxy Note 7 suffer from a “very rare manufacturing process error,” so it makes sense for Samsung to replace them as soon as possible...

Strangely seems like a odd conspiracy. No doubt it's happening to dinner but even the last article was not a note 7 it was a s7 active starting think people want free note 7s even if they don't have one and same articles being published multiple times.

Shoddy manufacturing, no surprise for Samsung. They produce so many different phones, what do you expect. They put the same quality in their 5 dollar phone as their 900 dollar phone. Which is very little. Like i.e. the light bleed issue with the their cartoon display. Samsung says that's a feature, lol.....

Another asshat. You cannot have light bleed on an AMOLED display, because there is no backlight to bleed.

Not sure how "qualified" this guy is, but the guy at JerryRigEverything on YouTube basically dissected the Note 7 battery. https://youtu.be/_Cd2WIxKRDk

Stripping it apart and poking it with something hot doesn't seem very scientific to me.

Just read that a Note 7 caught fire in SC and burned down the garage the person was charging it in. I gues the person figured what could go wrong in a garage unattended. Also read that a Note 7 exploded while in a person hand using it and not charging. Burned his hand. Yes this is a VERY big issue. The CPSC should order a official recall. The phones are REALLY dangerous, considering 70% of the phones have the SDI battery. Be safe out there, this unprecedented........

The Note 7 debacle is down to pure negligence on Samsungs part, period. They released a device onto the the market without proper R&D, testing and quality control. My guess is they were in such a hurry to beat the iPhone 7 to market, they overlooked the basics & it bit them.
