Consumer Reports! FAA! NOTE 8 anyone. DavMor0069--what great year. Samsung hasn't released anything significant since the Galaxy S3...everything after that was gimmicky added features--take a feature off of the next model--add it back the next model and so on. Gear Icon--meehhhh. Gear S3--Apple Watch will steal the little adrenaline it has, VR--forget about it.

The fact you're so proud of a material item going through a string of defects speaks for itself. Go find help.

The note 8 is a possibility, since it will probably be the first phone to dethrone the note 7 is the best large device on the planet.

The iPhone 7+ would like a word.

The 6s+ wanted a word last year. Didn't change anything.

The point was, best is subjective, and considering you can't even buy a Note right now........meh.

Of course best is subjective. I'm speaking of the reviews.

He's been bitter since the Note 4, because the reviews since then have ranked the Galaxy flagships higher than his chosen device.

And also I don't know how they will differentiate the " explosive " note 7 and the new one It would be good also they fix the software because it lags and get hot at times

I think I'll turn mine in when the new ones are released. And it will continue to be the best large Phone there is.

Anyhow, Samsung should invest some R&D on QC (Quality Control)... But come to think of it, Samsung Flagship Phones tend to be as tough as an OX and as reliable as a Honda... I wonder what's going on at Samsung Headquarters...? I won't be surprised if this battery epidemic turns out to be a sabotage from rivals... Goodwill or reputation is the BIGGEST asset of a company that's as big as Samsung... Needless to say, we will hear mentions of this battery epidemic for... Not years... BUT DECADES... But lets hope for the best... G'Night...

Hopefully Samsung learns some lessons and tests their phones more instead of rushing out to beat the iPhone (let's be honest, mostly people either look for an iPhone or an Android phone, after they choose, they don't really go to the other), plus gives us back removable batteries. Here's to hoping that they also have flat screened phones alongside edged phones, even though that has nothing to do with this fiasco.

This is a safety issue and never getting old. Get over it.

Honestly while i am not saying that exploding note 7 is a good thing; I do think Samsung has done an excellent Job in handling the issue. I think what we are witnessing is short tem and in the long run, people will thank Samsung for not being told you where charging it wrong lol

Yep so far Samsung has done a decent job of handling this. I still think carriers should also send multiple texts pestering customers to exchange their Notes warning them that their service will be disconnected if they don't do it within a week or two. Material things can be replaced but a life can't so better safe then sorry.

Except, they can't really do that.

Every time there's a problem with a product the users are the ones that take the hit and that's not good. I hope Samsung learns something and will be providing it's users with better products. I love their new lines (7 Edge and N7) but I think I will withhold from buying until they will provide similar services to Apple.

I am curious as to how many tech fans care about investors.
