[NYT] Goodbye Note 7: Samsung terminated the production of Note 7 - Page 2

post #11 of 207
The media are going OTT with this.

They're relishing the fact that a company that has been rivalling Apple has made a major slip up but this doesn't change the fact that the S6/7 and S6/S7 Edge phones are selling like hot cakes and in around 6 months time the S8/S8 Edge is going to help erode IOS's marketshare even more when it's released and this story has been all but forgotten.

You're like the people whining why the phones don't have removeable batteries. You don't need them. The phones wouldn't be the most beautiful on the market if Samsung were forced to make them with removeable batteries to satisfy the loud minority that want to hold technology back. Same with SD cards.

So you buy a new $700 phone when the battery only holds a 50% charge after 2 years?

Personally, I couldn't care less about a removable battery, I will just solder a new one in like my ipods, but I at least understand why someone want's it.

I honestly don't see the point anymore, what does one keep on an SD card that can't be kept in the cloud?
Why would you want less features in a phone? The cloud compresses images and videos unless you are willing to pay a monthly fee for increased quality/storage. As mentioned above, cloud = less security and needs internet access.

Don't need removeable batteries? How is that working out for Samsung?

More likely holding back awesome piece of technique to get customers to dump their phones every 2 years.(my wife's HTC M8 is ready to be dumped because battery is not enough to get through one day of light usage and changing battery involves dissasembing pretty much all of it – down to screen and some parts of motherboard). What sort of benefit does non-removable battery hold apart telephones being stupid thin? Just so you know my fater in law has a CAT phone withremovable battery and SD card (and 3.5 mm headphone jack for that matter) which is more waterproof/dustproof than any of the popular smartphones on the market.

The same people that defend companies removing SD card slots and removeable batteries are the same folks that cheared Apple for removing the audio jack. rolleyes.gif

Bet they regret pinching pennies to remove the removable battery feature now, coulda saved them a 17 billion dollar product scrapping.
post #19 of 207
I was hoping we were past all of this silliness when they did the exchange program. Now we are left in the dark yet again about the fate of these phones. Are they going to have another recall? Are they going to try and repair this batch? I am quite frankly tired of moving my mothers data from phone to phone mad.gif


Also guys please stay on topic SD slots have nothing to do with this thread. thumb.gif

That sucks. Note 7 was a really nice phone. I have a Note 5 but I only upgrade every 2 years.

Will still be getting the Note 8 or w/e they'll call it if they rename it after this whole debacle. Hopefully they can recover since a lot of ignorant, casual users have even started asking if their non-note 7 phones ( some that are years old ) will explode rolleyes.gif. These same people will hopefully forget in a month since they have the attention span of a 5 year old.
