This is the closest thing you can get in term of "Pen", compared to Samsung Note series. You can buy the phone now at directD, price is RM1,399. However, it's a mid-range phone.

Morning news from Taiwan news TV today.

The news was saying that the new batch of Note 7 (Korea version) is having some new issues. Korea users claimed that the new phone got extremely hot during charging and some Korea users also claimed that the new battery could not be charged.

Personally I don't think Samsung will making this type of "stupid mistake" just after recent crisis.

Well, I don't think it's a "stupid mistake". I think most likely there's other root causes other than the battery itself. That's why South Korea government gave strict order today and asked Samsung to perform X-Ray scan to all the new Note 7 they are going to release in Korea market, make sure those phones are completely safe.. Even their government doesn't have much confidence that the new batch is 100% problem free.

Is it? I lost the time order liao. Anyway, still cannot deny the fact that Korea government doesn't have confidence about Samsung own procedure. Hence the ordered throughout X-Ray scan.

Watch the clip. The clip (started from 1:00) indicated that the new Note 7 has battery drain issue eventhough it was charging. In other words, the battery could not be charged.

Mandarin news regarding the new battery issues arised.

http://news.cnyes.com/news/id/3550823

Main points of the news:

1. Multiple cases been reported after the replacement units were released.
2. New battery got excessive heat issue.
3. Battery charging is not working.
4. Samsung Korea claimed that they will investigate the root causes as soon as possible.
5. Korean netizens complained and said Note 7 users should be banned in transport system such as subway stations. Mind you. They specifically said "Note 7 users should be banned". Not the phones only, but also the users themselves should be banned. The Korea netizens are much more hardcore than we thought... sweat.gif
6. Some Korea users suspected that the root cause is on the manufactured design itself instead of battery

Not related to Note 7. But they are all Samsung devices...so I would just put this in here for reference. All of them are in mandarin since they are China news. All those news were reported in these 2 days.

Galaxy S6 (China version) exploded. (Multiple pics inside)

Galaxy A9 (Hong Kong version) exploded and owner's butt was injured.. Owner is "butthurted", literally. Pics inside (NSFW)

This is how the incident looks like in real life when a phone is catching fire in aircraft.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 catches fire in aircraft in Chennai

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/indust...ow/54481530.cms

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 catches fire on Indian flight

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsung-Gal...-flight_id85760


QUOTE
Now, India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation expects airlines to warn passengers about keeping all Samsung Galaxy Note smartphones switched off on flight, or avoid carrying them altogether. Meanwhile, Samsung is preparing a statement on the case.



I am sure this is not the fault of Note 7. That Note 2 was catching fire probably because it's too old (4 yrs old). But since the whole airline industry all around the world is paying full attention on the Note 7 fiasco, any incidents that related to Samsung devices would have some sort of impacts towards Samsung at this critical moment, directly or indirectly. As for this case, India airlines may ban ALL the Note series just because of an old Note 2 is malfunctioning.

I repeat, this is old Note 2. But unfortunately, like it or not, most people would link this to Note 7 just because it was happened inside an aircraft. Human love to imagine things and you won't be able to stop that. A Samsung device was catching fire in aircraft. This is the thing that Samsung doesn't wish to see at this critical moment. What can we say? Really tough luck, Samsung.

hmm... the update for old phones is 170+MB only.

the one mentioned in article is is 400+.

The one mentioned in article is America carrier version, so it's quite normal if the file size is different with the Malaysia one. Samsung device has too many version for each model. Everytime they released a new update for a specific model, every country version is different in term of file size and log file.

I don't think you can keep the S-Pen lah. Eventhough it's considered as accessories, it's still a part of phone. I don't think Samsung will let you go easy on this one. Unless you tipu them said it's missing, then they probably have no choice but let you go with the new S-Pen. Just my 2 cents. laugh.gif

Finally, FAA un"ban" New Note 7, started effectively from 26/9.

http://www.cna.com.tw/news/afe/201609260306-1.aspx


The message was hidden in a small part in FAA site. Very tricky.

http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/hazmat_safety/

QUOTE
In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its recalled Galaxy Note 7 devices, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge the recalled devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage. This does not apply to non-recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices purchased September 15th, 2016, or later. The non-recalled devices have a green battery charge indicator on their screen.

Found a set of adapter, cable and earphone
Totally like original, even my friend work with Samsung also can't differentiate
Gonna give them this set of accessories
What? Seriously.... That would be not good since those are not originals. Why not you just tell them you wish to keep the accessories since some other owners already claimed that it's ok to keep? IMO, using non-genuine accessories to replace original accessories.....this is too much already.... doh.gif better say you lost it lagi best la.
