While other phones have taken into burning, none of them got a full on recall. Meaning there might be something in it. There might be nothing. But the PR nightmare coming out of it so strongly, that it leaves them little choice even if everything had been just a few random stuff completely unrelated.

Investigating they will of course. But the note 7 got enough of a bad name to be put away for good.

North Korea has been testing Nuke weapon in the last few weeks or so. I wonder if it's just their Note 7 that they got from south Korean lol.

Enough with the joke....now I'm not sure if it's a good idea to get one or not.

I really hope that samsung fix it this time.

Yes. But I know my car will not suddenly out of the blue catch fire and burn me to a crispest by driving it.
And if I knew the model had a tendency to catch sudden fire, I would not drive it either.

When it comes to cars, your analogy is so off it is basically on the far side of the moon now. Cars which are safe to drive (aka won't explode or lose breaks because of a defect) don't just kill people. People kill people.

The good ole Ford Exploder.

Everything samsung makes is junk. That said I doubt samsung MAKES anything at all? They have a million middle men, that they samsung cant control.

Let face it you have a company that makes everything from refrigerators with porn, trash compactors, to exploding washing machines, and junk phones. How can they make a quality product, they can't. I think this proves it.

Samsung solid state drives aren't junk.

eek.gif Seriously???? Are you kidding me? Your speaking to a former evo owner. If your ssd is actually slower than an hdd, yea they are junk. Samsung made that go away. However the drives in question, even with the new firmware slowed way down after only aftre few months of use. Most people I know ended up with an rma.
I would never buy anything with the samsung name on it. Already been burned too many times.

Exploding washing machines?! Omg... wow... With them being under so much scrutiny it kinda sucks that this is starting to happen as well.

I'll stick with my Maytag, everything else will blow up around it before it suffers any sort of malfunction.

Because you are not at all concerned for other's safety, only that you have a phone..? That is why none of this is a big deal to you...?

 

But you tend to look at things through only your eyes, instead of Other's. Whom might not appreciate that his apartment burnt down, because you don't care about your free phone someone threw out.

 

 

 

You are too dismissive. And it doesn't matter if it is only 0.001%...? 

Out of 1 million, or 4 million..  I don't want to be on the plane, bus, elevator, train, etc with someone who has an exploding phone.... even if that someone is ignorant of their own situation, or not.
