The official Galaxy Note 7 return kit is morbidly hilarious and totally practical

The morbidly hilarious package contains no less than four boxes, some of which feature thermal insulation. There are also an anti-static bag, an instruction manual, and a pair of safety gloves. Who knew a smartphone had to be handled with this much care?

You think you're funny, you iPhone sheep would be a brick if it had the iPhone name on it.

What's the big deal? Just get an S7 Edge instead, djeez! Why is everybody suddenly neglecting the regular S7 and S7 Edge? They're technically the same phones without a pen.

I would only want the safety gloves personally. xD

I have one question... Do we know if all Galaxy Note 7 that exploded were the Qualcomm variant or Exynos exploded as well? Because... If it's not the battery what triggers the short circuit, couldn't it be the chipset? I really am looking forward to a reply to this. Because almost every Note 7 that I read they caught fire, were from the States and they only get the Qualcomm variant of the cellphone.

That is also another valid question that was never asked with the claims. Wish I knew too man. Mine is a qualcomm variant and been fine since day one

I think there has been a problem with batttery project or waterproofing, this too could give problems. Anyway I hope Samsung can identify problem. We need all companies to find new solutions for batteries wich are not risky for customers. We got to battery limits, Samsung can be only the starter of the problem... I wish Samusng to recover from this and apparently apple too. Everybody in it's own style can give us something let's hope not to get used to this kind of issue

no matter how much you love this phone. just return it back for refund. it is no longer giving you warranty or software update or customer care anymore after the return period fade away.

Look if Samsung "port" the Note 7 software to the S7 Edge bar the pen features. Or sell that pen separately (with a special S7 Edge case to hold the pen) wouldn't that be the same. I know the Note has a more updated software revision but that could/should be easily ported to the S7 series. I think I've already told enough options to help potential Note 7 customers revert to an S7 Edge. Why isn't Samsung smart enough to come up with these options themselves? Who the hell runs these corporations? Monkeys?

Wow, so no one saw the reviews on the Note 7 when just about EVERY reviewer said it was the best phone of 2016. Samsung fans have to deal with the loss but some of you guys should deal with the fact the statement was made by many. Why that should be so hard I don't get. After all, the threat neutralized itself. IPhone 7 won by default.
