More Woes For The Note 7

Not good news for Samsung. Complaints that the replacements are overheating.

Noooo! Man that sucks!. Still it'll take a lot more to even come close the iPhone 7 Plus debacle

That's really worrying @Bambino although the comment 'they should pull all the Note 7's till the issue is sorted' seems a bit confusing to me. I thought that's exactly what Samsung were doing. I know this article is stating the replacements are overheating as well but I haven't heard any other reports of this. To be honest I doubt they would dare release replacements unitl they were sure it was safe to do so. Just my opinion of course,

Re: More Woes For The Note 7

No, I think not.
You see, in real life, the needs of safety far outweigh the demands of the impatient.
I tell you what, we'll let a few iPhones explode, then we'll recall them and then after a month of being messed around (I believe the most you've been waiting so far is 10 days, no?) we'll still have no firm answers or fully working handsets available for you, all whilst you still pay your bill. Hows that sound?
The "iPhone 7 debacle"isn't even in the same league as the note 7 customers yet but its understood iPhone customers don't like feeling left out, or made special. So please, carry on hijacking threads, it's not like there's enough iPhone threads running already.

Re: More Woes For The Note 7

No offence to you @Bambino but I've never read so much headline grabbing sensationalism.
So much technically wrong in that short page of text is unbelievable!

Re: More Woes For The Note 7

@AJ1982 This is a thread about the Note7. The iPhone 7 has no relevance here

Re: More Woes For The Note 7

@Cleoriff The article I posted is referring to an article in the Wall Street Journal, and it appears these incidents are only in South Korea at the moment, but they would be the first to get the replacement phones, so this issue could spread. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if it does. In any event, it's not good PR for Samsung.

 

Yes I agree @MI5, but the article as I said is referring to a WSJ article, which goes into the issue in more detail.
