Samsung tells ALL Galaxy Note 7 owners to power down the device – original AND replacement models

Samsung has issued a press release this afternoon related to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replacement units. Since last week, at least six of them have exploded including the latest incident that took place at a South Korean Burger King. That explosion was caught on video. Supposedly a "safer" version of the phablet because of the different battery employed on the model, the replacement units have proven to be as dangerous as the original models...

Your opinion won't matter to the public now. People will reject Samsung anyway. But FYI there are much better alternatives to your S7 edge if you aren't a blind fanboy. Motorola, Op3, iPhone etc.. So your little opinion is invalid and doesn't matter at all. Samsung makes low quality products with lots of flashy useless gimmicks to rip off money from out pockets. Little children like you will fall for those gimmicks and buy them and scream it's the best phone in the world. And yet they explode left and right....lol

Thrown me under the bus? How sway!? Provided me my first note, gave me a replacement s7 edge while the new ones were created. Shipped me a new one free of charge. Gave me a FREE 256 GB micro SD class 10 (Best in the market) and with my loaner gave me the gear fit FREE... AND WITH MY NEW NOTE GAVE ME A FREE GEAR VR!! What has apple ever given anyone? When have they even admitted error? At least Samsung got in front of it.. both times!

They provided your first note? Like after you payed for it? Wow what an amazing company. Did they give you an amazing deal or did you pay nearly a grand for the premium device? They then let you borrow a loaner while you waited for a replacement (that would also later be recalled) of the ones that are widely catching fire and they didn't charge you? I'd love that convenience in my next phone purchase for sure. Apple sucks but they've given out gifts/credits to people when they f-up too. Although I don't recall them ever having such a massive f-up as samsung is having now. "At least Samsung got in front of it.. both times!" Bwahaha. fan boys.

So they gone from you have to have the phon plug-in to go wrong and now they just go wrong and all they done is moved to the iphone battery maker and now they got even bigger problems, something is very wrong and it's not Samsung

Wonder if everyone will get the message? Maybe they will send text to everyone and deactivate all the phones remotely.

That's it. Finally! Too bad no galaxy note for me this year. I'm looking for a phablet or 7-8" tablet with a stylus for my new sketching hobby.

Nah. Still keeping and using mine. No issues, no need to give into paranoia. Until Samsung sends an email or says otherwise keeping mine in hand and used as my daily. I'm aware if the whiny ass trolls on this sute and don't give a flying f*ck what they say. Y'all dont speak for Samsung.

It's still pending investigation. Do you understand what the phrase don't give a flying f*ck means? It means I don't give a flying f*ck what you stupid whiny ass trolls like you say.

Do you need Shamesung so to translate this in your native language? Maybe someone here can translate for you so you'll understand. We are here to help you broseph. "Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available."

Dumbs like you shouldn't live with us!

You retards may think I'm dumb. I think otherwise because I'm willing to wait to hear what Samsung says before I decide what I want to do. I don't listen to bitches. Sorry man but I am typing on my note 7 too and love how cool it feels to the touch right now.
