How is it even a Note? Because it has the s-pen, that's why.

Actually it's not even if it wasn't exploding it still laggy like hell.

And many jobs. Way to support unemployment! Also, the fact that neither company would be what they are without competition. Otherwise, we would still be stuck with small screens, low res screens and other old school tech from 2005. *Idiot!*

new day and new bad news for samsung :-/ samsung should just refund (or replace with other Galaxy) every single note7 in this planet, and erase note7 from history... (they won't go bankrupt just because of this) and then refurb all those note7, upgrade it with 6GB of RAM, and 256GB storage, then release it as note6, and sell it for $500

WSJ & Bloomberg report Samsung decided to permanently stop Note7 production. So officially Note7 product is dead now. Right decision. A production halt the first time would have been the best. Anyway better they did now. This will clear up the confusion around the set and relieve the headaches that crop up each passing day. The confidence in the model is lost and carriers wouldn’t want to take the headache and pain of handling the issues. Question is how would they fill the gap of 8 months to the release of next Note? Expect the next version along with S8? Possible as these days the only major difference between the S & the Note series is the S-Pen. I do not like iphone & among android I’m not finding a proper alternative. Probably will go back to my Note 4 and wait till next Note.

Note 4 is still the best Note so it's good choice

"I told you we should make Note 6 first" -VP of product

Yep, turns out all those Note 7s were short-circuiting every time they heard the user call it a 7. "But what happened to the 6? Does not compute"

It's sad to see this... Hopefully Samsung has learned its lesson and will test its devices more thoroughly before releasing them. I also hope they manage to save as much of their reputation as possible after this whole debacle. The name "Note" needs to go, for starters. Maybe they should just bundle an S Pen with all their S series phones with large screens.

Why does the name "Note" needs to go over a small numer of alleged claims?

Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Edge and S8 Note will be shown at World Mobile Congress in Barcelona. I'm pretty sure of that.

Worst device launch in smartphone history. Even the Amazon Firephone and the Saygus V2 weren't that bad.

Don't forget the facebook phone, even though this was worse

Obviously. Those phones just blew chunks. This phone had the potential to blow chunks off. Worst phone ever.

But seriously, this should open some eyes that removable batteries should be in every phone. If it was the case Sammy would only worry about replacing 10$ battery not entire 700$ phone. LG can do it then everyone can do it and glass/metal build shouldn't be an excuse

Though I am no expert, I don't think it is the battery. It must be software and/or hardware related also. Some function that overtaxes the battery or something. It is sad what happened and the way it happened. One would expect better out of Samsung. I usually buy every new high end Samsung device. This time though, I did not pre-book; I am glad I didn't.

I thought it was a flaw in the speccing of the battery or the compartment. The batteries were fine, but squeeze a Li-ion battery pack just right and it can short out.
