if in love with the pen... not many options out there that's as good as Samsung's Note series.

you can go with last year's version, if storage is not an issue (Note5 does not have microSD slot).

in regards to whether the issue is sorted out or not, we can only trust Samsung's word for now. we'll have to see what happens when more of the new batches are in the wild and when there's enough units to meet the %... like 1 in 40k suddenly blowing up means theoretically speaking, 40k units of new note7 need to be in hands of owners...

then there's also the "nagging" feel... initial reports seems to say that samsung may have crammed a BIG battery into a small space within the phone, causing stress and pressure to the battery... making it heat up easier than it would otherwise be. it also meant the anode is more likely to touch the cathode in the battery (they are supposed to be separate)...

so, not sure if this one can be "fixed" or not by getting another manufacturer. so far, china (hong kong and macau) units are not having any such issues -- phone explosion. ok... that is if we discount the 1-2 cases which is still under investigation.

that also, itself... can be a problem. which factory is doing the battery? it looks like it might not be Samsung factory. so... could it be some 3rd party factory... is the quality going to be better? or at least the same? if worse... then it's going to be nightmare for both samsung and owners.

2-3 weeks is kinda short notice to place order for like 2 million batteries... but... well, i'd like to think Samsung somehow managed to arrange for it...

Other than the battery issues, Samsung has to work on the airlines restrictions too..

Banning Note 7 is not an enigma. It is logical. As well as banning watery item. It is based on facts.

I think it is not fair to ban note 7 permanently if Samsung manage to solve the issue.

All the phone batteries are prone to explosion, although the chance is low. Does that mean all phones should be banned?

They shouldn't have pushed this 60% battery update out so soon because replacement sets in Malaysia not available until Sep 29.

this is to reduce the chance of explosion for those who keep using the phones until the replacement.

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.

But the warranty will be by Samsung China if u replace the unit with them?

Interesting articles to read about the effect of note 7 recall to Samsung.

Quote from one of the editors:
QUOTE
The Note 7 is now and forever a dud that you shouldn't buy. Not because it's a bad phone or the new models will explode, but because Samsung will be quick to drop support and forget it ever existed.


Don't know how true is this statement. But it will be very sad if Samsung just drop support for the Note 7.It kinda stops me from buying the Note 7.. Now considering LG V20, but lack of s pen sad.gif
