Just some sharing here. As I am having some long term assignment in China, I enquire China Samsung about my phone. Amazingly they have no issue to replace a brand new set for me even though I only have a phone and charger with me. They ask me to decide if I am fine with original China set. I would check if it is possible to switch colour to coral blue. Pray that they allow so and I will happily surrender my MY set to them.

Do check again as China set does not support any Google stuffs - eg no play store , play services , YouTube too
Unless you install custom recovery and install Gapps yourself

Personally I had confidence Samsung will make sure the new Note 7 will not have those exploding batteries anymore. They would not like to see a repeat of the same problem
There are just too much pessimism here about the revised edition of the Note 7
If one had no confidence just sell it off
Even though I had sold my black Note 7 to my close friend ( at a very good offer price) I would like to repurchase one back again.
The Note 7 in my assessment is still the best Android I had used this year vs S7e, HTC10, LG V10, Nexus 6P, One PLus 3, Mate 8, MiMax, Axon 7 etc etc

Not THAT normal but also not THAT extraordinary too. I've read multiple reviewers saying that it is a lot less like Note 7 but with a much more reasonable price. Note7 surely has more features than any other "flagship" but  it is all about faith now haha.
Oneplus3 seems to be promising too. But being a Samsung "loyal" customer since Tab1, buying other brands is kinda hard for me though.
Basically it goes like this,

If you're dumping your Note7, go for Mate 8.
But, Honor 8 => Mate 8.
Anyhow, P9+ > P9  > Mate 8.
Hence, P9+ <=> OP3.

This is why I hate math.

If you don't mind a bigger display of 6.4 inches, the MiMax is a good alternative. Best is darn cheap - RM900+ for 32GB, RM1000+ for 64GB and only RM1.2+K for 128GB
Its big battery of 4850 mAh , I could easily get 11-12 hours SOT
Only major weakness is its above average camera only
However most probably you would need to reflash firmware to global version as most sets purchased here come with vendor custom rom with lots of bloatware and ad popping stuffs from the installed Apus launcher

personally, i feel the 2K display on smartphones are over-rated. i find 1080p/ fullHD is actually good enough. we dun hold phone that close to us anyway... unless you're really into VR. even then... i think 1080p is still decent enough.

i put the Note7 display next to P9... about the same. no doubt Note7 more vibrant, but if talk about screen sharpness, etc... i see... it's about the same.
*
+1. I am perfectly comfortable with 1080p display. 2k I would consider a slight bonus only

Morning guys,

Did anyone heard any issue or feedback from singapore note 7 owner about their replacement units?

In Korea their replacement units have overheating batteries issue.

I had yet to read anyone complaining about overheating batteries. There are some minor complains here and there - the negatives are minimal and not experienced by most users. I find several users just like to nitpick even on minor issues

So many variations of exchange requirements
Just bring the whole box and the accessories n if one so desired negotiate to keep the accessories
My ex unit from Courts I read here at least 5 different versions of exchange !!

Courts informed me that I could exchange the phone at any Samsung service center. He said is so because they failed to contact me through phone few days back and arrangements to specific Courts branch already made. I will need to bring the whole box and purchase receipt. As for the accessories I need to ask the service center. I had sold my phone to my Malacca friend and he had already made an exchange report at Malacca Samsung Service center in the early days of this problem. I hope he will have a smooth exchange. Exchange start on 30 Sept onwards.
He doesn't mind if the accessories are taken back and a new set is given

MY Courts unit which I sold to my Malacca friend, he went to Samsung Service Center and they turned him down . COURTS had infact called me again 2 days back to remind me of the exchange and confirmed I could change it at ANY Samsung service center
My friend than called Courts Malacca and was told to go back to the center where it is purchased?? Don't these Court guy know all the purchase was done online? Anyway my friend was told they couldn't do it as they do not have any record of purchase done at their place !! And even if they were to do it, they needed the original purchaser to come for the exchange
So my friend is going to courier the set to me and I will help him to get it change at my place. Hope my place doesn't tell me same story and asked me to go back to source of purchase
I had called Courts and the lady promised she will call me back and I am still waiting for her call back since this morning

oops that is real troublesome  sweat.gif
uncle benny, how come you sold yours and now gotta buy back?  hmm.gif

I sold without any loss and that time my friend was desperate to get one. At same time I had other phones with me. He paid me the same price I paid and I get to keep all the freebies. But I gave him the wireless charger as I already had one
This is not the first time I repurchase back a phone I had bought before
Personally for me, the Note 7 till now is still the best Android phone I had ever used
Currently I am having the MiMax ( daily driver), Axon 7 , Zenfone 3 Ultra as my other Androids

Very cheap only under rm3
Worth very sen and is just a simple tick n untick to disable and enable back any app chosen
Use it intelligently and try avoid easy way out by mass disabling all recommended bloatware

Guys if you are too worried just don't use the phone and sell it off
Why use and worried about battery over heating and possibly exploding ??

Android 6.0 has doze effect built in. It is totally unnecessary to even use Greenify as the app will interfere with doze. On my ex Note7 n current phones using Android 6.01 my battery drain overnight for all is around 2-3% overnight 7-8 hours. This is with wifi on , sync on, and mobile data ,Bluetooth and GPS off
I don't install any other battery saving app, memory managers, app booster etc as these are unnecessary with Android 6.0 and above
I don't even use Samsung built in app to manage caches, battery etc.

Uncle benny, you do not use always on display right?

without always on, I can get 2-3%
with always on, I get 1% per hour

Yes no AOD. Samsung had said this feature will drain at 0.8% per hour

Phones and powerbanks are often not allowed to be in check in luggage . You will normally be asked to handcarry in. It is strange if one is asked to put it inside checkin baggage.
