Samsung will start selling the Galaxy Note 7 again on September 28

Samsung will start selling the Galaxy Note 7 again on September 28
Samsung is struggling to replace all potential faulty Galaxy Note 7 units sold after the flagship hit shelves, as quickly as possible. The company introduced an exchange program in the United States where customers can choose replace their Galaxy Note 7 with a new one, switch to another Samsung smartphone, or ask for a full refund.

Similar exchange programs, but with fewer choices, are available in all other 9 countries where the Galaxy Note 7 went on sale weeks ago.

After the company's official statement issued today, we understand that the Galaxy Note 7 replacement units will arrive in the US by September 21. Samsung also confirmed that it managed to exchange 130,000 phones in the country until now, but the handset maker made a recall for about 1 million units just in the US.

Customers who did not want to pre-order the Galaxy Note 7 for whatever reasons will be pleased to know that Samsung will resume Galaxy Note 7 sales about a week after the deadline announced for the arrival of replacement units.

There's a catch though, it will only happen in its home turf. A company spokeswoman confirmed that sales of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will resume in South Korea on September 28. However, in other countries that will only happen when conditions allow it.

Basically, this means that Galaxy Note 7 sales in the US might resume after all, or at least the vast majority, of potential faulty units have been replaced.

In the meantime, if you already own a Galaxy Note 7 and haven't yet taken advantage of the exchange program, then you should definitely do that as soon as possible since there's been an increase in the number of incidents (the exploding kind) related to the phone in the last couple of days.

The world is a cruel place to be, Trojan... People will never get over it... And... Neither shall I...!!! Why should I when iPhone users are STILL called iSheep... When iOS is still considered inferior than Android... When iPhone users are still labeled as "Wall Huggers"... WHY SHOULD I GET OVER IT WHEN YOU AND YOUR FELLOW FANBOYS DON'T GET OVER IT...??? iOS WAS inferior, TRUE... Not anymore... iPhone users WERE wall huggers, TRUE... Not anymore... Trying to convince you and Mr. Techie is like trying to potty train a cow... Futile... G'Day!

That "epic post" is futile as far as I'm concerned, because I'm not guilty of any of the derogatory stuffs he pointed out. It's true that Android fans in general do call Apple fans "iSheep" and "wall huggers" etc... But that has nothing to do with me. Not all Android fans are equal.

Woah Woah Woah... I think I can clear a couple things up here. IOS is only considered inferior in the eyes of Android users, BECAUSE Android as a whole has more freedom. That is not putting down IOS by any means. I used to crap all over it since day one, but I am actually interested in getting a ios device, since they have added a lot of features I am used to on Android. As for being a wall hugger... it is still kind of true. Not because Apple hasnt refined their hardware/software to be able to last a full day, they have. But it is because from a Android users mindset of how they use their phones, if they (and I really am talking about the powerusers/people who frequent sites like this) used a iphone, like they would their Android device, I could completely see needing to have to charge up the phone before the day is over. I honestly do not feel any of you should be called isheep anymore. The real problem here is that Android fans do not understand grasp what Apple is doing here. They have full control of hardware and software, which is why iphones for the most part run as smooth as they do, on what is considered mid-range specs by Android 2016 standards. It will be a never ending battle here between iphone fans and Android fans. But honestly who really cares if someone is calling any android phones trash, or if someone calls iphones over priced crap. Do we really give two s**ts what others opinions are on this site? I say let people say what they want to say, however its not gospel, and we have the right to love whatever phone/OS we prefer.

I "mostly" agree with you, mate... Mostly... NOT ENTIRELY... I quote: "They have full control of hardware and software, which is why iphones for the most part run as smooth as they do, on what is considered MID-RANGE SPECS by Android 2016 standards." Apple A10 is more powerful than the latest and greatest Snapdragon 821... Don't go by the number of cores and RAM... Multiple processing cores mean ABSOLUTELY nothing if an OS is not optimized for multi-threading... And that's a fact...! About wall huggers... Well, I don't own an iPhone so can't possibly comment on this... But I do have to charge my Nexus 5 multiple times when I surf a lot...! Same goes to my Windows Phone, Lumia 430... As I say, an iPhone and Android are VERY similar, yet VERY different...! They both might be smartphones... But they're on the polar opposite when it comes to anything else...! G'Day!

Android is optimized for multithreading, and in fact will thread the work even if an app isn't multithreaded.

What's funny is in most side by side tests, the Galaxy opens web pages faster and supports all media including flash.

When yoi all sgop actimg like sheep is when it will stop. When iOS is better than Android it will stop. When Apple puts bigger batteries, or you need ro explain how a phone with half rhe featufes if a Galaxy has terrible battery life. You are a fanboy. The iPhone still has rerrible battery life. To be fair i realize rhat the Galaxy has tons of more features so I am sure it has a higher drain. Bit rhe iPhone has less features anf even with a smaller battery it should last longer than an IPhone. It has no bloat, no features no nothing and it doesn't even last as long as my Note. My mom's iPhone 6S Plus with even her medium usage always has to be charged. You shouldn't be teying ro convince anyone anything. I see the facts first hand. My mom is 80 years old. She rarely uses her iPhone. She lives with me. All she dows is watch some vids and a text here a. There. But she does get amd make lots of calls. I woild say maybe up tp 20 calls in a day lasting 1 min to 30 mins tops. Yet by noon 50% of her battery is gone. It takes me from 8am to 5pm juatbto fall to 70%. I'm fair ess I dont make that many calls. I text over 200.messages a day with full size photos and I do lotsnof uploads and downloads. Yet i can go to full work days on a single charge. Mybusage may vary. The weekend ia the k ky time I have to charge my phome overnight. As far as whether iOS better than Android. It depends on what you want. Why try to convince its better because you like it? Here is why Android is better and its nothing ro do with personal preference: Because i can attach any file type of an email. Because when i plug it into my pc, i can mkve data back and forth anf I dont have tonuse iTunes whichbis the worse application in the world. Because ecen though millions willmowm the same device, can make mines be more unique to my tastes. It crashes less apps. Upgrades are less problematic. Because of rhe open nature of the platform, its easier to implement new features and ideas. Apps have mofe useful features. Because I can setbit anf charge it like with default apps. Because I cam look Forward to an actual new phone every year. The ultimate reason is, simply because it's my choice and I'm nkt or have i ever tried to convince anyone my choocr is better because i actually understanf my chooce isnt for everyone. One thing sheep like you never seem to understand. Np one is dumb because they buy whatever phone. What makes your choice dumb is whem ignorant pepple like you use their choice to talk nd about another with exaggerated B.S.. like you just did. The iPhone still has terrible battery lkfe considering it has limited capabilities vs many Android options. Better is subjective until it's not. Like the fact even though my device has 4 timws the power and 10 timws the features, it last longer than yours and it doesn't take 3 hours to charge back up. Samsu choice works for me. Doesn't need to for you.

Be a good son a get your mom a new phone. She has a defective unit. She needs a dependable phone. Mine has about 60 percent when I plug it up at 10pm. That's taking it off about 7 am every morning. I do some YouTube and little gaming. Texting and web surfing.

People are already lined up in front of apple stores (like sheep) for a phone that is less capable/convenient than last year's model. iSheep is a name that they've rightfully earned. Have you seen Kimmel's latest iPhone prank video yet? The woman who was about to hand over $50 for her own phone (thinking it was the new iphone7) was priceless lol. iSheep is still a thing...so you may as well adapt to it bud. ;)

Have you watch some samsung fanboy who defended the note 7 even if it was banned on planes and still they took it on planes by jeopardizing lives of 100s of passenger that clearly confirms that sammy idiots are worse than apple fanboy . They don't even care about there own safety.

I wonder which fans you're talking about. Besides, your claim can't be proven. The Samsung fan (I've forgotten his username) who took his Note7 on a plane, did so before it was officially banned from Airlines. Quote: "...sammy idiots are worse than Apple fanboy" FALSE There are equally "idiots" on both sides.

Gosh you sound so much like me. Are you me? Yes there are isuits on both side. But Apple fans will defend Apple to rhe death. Because they know once you are vested in leaving is harder. With Android we never have to be held hostage by any oem. If one messes up, we can move 99.9% of your stuff to another brand. You have no alternative for IOS. I can't bring all my media to iOS, but I can view almost all of iOS media on my Android. Many could care less, thus an iPhone is perfect for them. But thet always wanna claim we dont understand them. We so. Just like they understand us. What they think is enough for what it costs to have, is not the same as how we see it. We both are saying, we feel it offers enough for what we are willing to pay. We do understand that not everyone wants bells and whistles. We have always an only said, you shoukdnt be charged as if you do. After all Android does offer phones on par with the phone in many ways for less money. But you dont have to troll. You have to exaggerate facts or ignore facts. That's something Android fans usually don't do.

There's a HUGE difference between a FAN and a FANBOY... I'm just a fan of iPhones. JUST a fan, and not a Fanboy... Probably my age to blame cause age discourages tinkering fetish... If I were younger, I could see my self preferring Android for the sake of customization and 'tinkering'... But now, I prefer something that just WORKS right outside the box... I used to love Ducatis when I was young... Ducks used to have terrible reliability and the Ducati's signature "Desmo" valves are a mechanic's nightmare... BUT I LOVED DUCATI...! As I grew older and older, I fell in love with Triumphs... More reliable than Ducatis albeit less characteristic... I even bought one in 1995, A Triumph Speed Triple... Lost her in an accident, sadly... Luckily, I survived! YAY! But now, I love... HONDAS...!!! They lack any character, but have matchless reliability! Thinking about grabbing a used CB500X now cause my 2-Stroke RD350 returns mpg of an SUV and smokes like a chimney...! Thinking about retiring it... Why? BECAUSE I AM GREEN MAN, eh? Funny how things and preferences change... Oh well, G'Day!

That's feom your side. But when we read your post, you say things fanboys say about Apple. You cannot be one without being the other. Because I love all tech, am technically a fan of everything, but that doesn't mean I dont have a favorite. But having a favorite doesn't mean I get to turn my back on the facts, when they don't suits me. Samsung is having an issue I openly stated was bad. But tbey are dealing with it. But fans wo t do that.They say exactly what Apple says and claim. As a fan you accept the good and bad as I do. While a fanboybwill ejthwebdefend or repat of try to change the facts Like with this Samsung issue. Most of you said, you cant compare the issues equally. Why? Where they are equal is simple and thr pro Ville applies. The principle is, they both had a problem and one handled a problem better than the other on numerous occasions for things that were serious or not and addressed them publicly. But you criticize them but not Apple and so that makws you a fanboy. A fan would criticize both. I've criticized Samsung, but they dont do as many stupid things as Apple to actually criticize them as often. Because people criticize them over petty crap lag when it actually applies. Fans criticize everything they don't like big or small. Fanboys only criticize anything bad to try to make themselves and choice look better. Especially when it a really isn't. Fans arwnt outbto prove either. Your post show you are more than a fan.

"But now, I prefer something that just WORKS right outside the box...". Aside from initial activation I thought iOS users had to get their phone set up by the rep who sold it to them...or is it easier than punching in your Gmail account and password like on Android?

Who cares? Are they spending your money? Are they using your time? Are you the one who is exposed to the elements while they wait? Let people spend their money and they time as they like. Want to argue the merits of one device over another? That's fair game. But there's no reason to call people names because they choose something different than you.

Not me. Nope. Another nope. God no... there's better ways to buy a phone lol. I'm stopping no one from buying what they like. You bet I'll argue the merits of one over the other...that's par for what these comment sections were created for in the first place. I'm not calling anyone names - as in personally. I didn't attack anyone's intelligence level, or call them gay or anything racial, didn't call anyone stupid or an idiot, or anything remotely comparable. I don't get all offended or oppressed when someone calls me a fanboy...it's fun actually. Personal insults I don't agree with, but I think I'm within limits when referring to a large group of people who are waiting in a long line for an electronic gadget that has fewer conveniences built into it than last year's model did. Ted...I've read hundreds of your posts - since when did you become so sensitive to iOS users and the little taunts that get thrown at them?
