Samsung still clueless about what caused Galaxy Note7 fires

24 October 2016
There have been reports that even members of the Galaxy S8 development team have now been tasked to find out the root cause of the problem.

Anonymous , 24 Oct 2016Blame it on Brexit(British exit from europe).Are you completely insane? Or are you completely devoid of intelligence? How can the British decision to leave the European Union affect the battery quality of a South Korean Company? You might as well say it was the fault of the Boer Wars or the American Revolution! Or better yet Phone Goblins who sneak in during the night and set fire to your phone.

In article of NYT, Samsung is said can't replicate the issue as to why Galaxy Note 7 could melt. Mashable can’t also perform it, even it tried charging Galaxy Note 7 four days continuously.


Well, perhaps Samsung or South Korean Government - or anyone genuinely trying to find the real cause- can't, because only the US media can. Remember how the whole world can't find IRAQI WMD, despite the US media telling the otherwise prior the invasion?? Remember before second recall, US media (i believe The Verge under his reporter Jordan Golson was almost always the first one) told Samsung explosions almost everyday (Oct 5, Oct 8, Oct 9, Oct 9, Oct 9, Oct 11). After the recall, all the explosions news MAGICALLY STOP although there are still literally a million Note 7 users who reluctant give up their phone.
Note that even prior Southwest incident, there are already numerous FAKE REPORTS about Galaxy Note 7. Just Google “Note 7 fake reports”. And rigging Note 7 is quite easy for someone with sabotage mission. Just youtube “how to open Note 7”.
On the same time, US media never post anything about iPhone explosions. Although unlike so called Samsung ‘melting’, iPhone explosion caused ACTUAL INJURY. That guy, Gareth, in Aussie did suffer from serious burn from iPhone explosion- not the Klering guy who said 'vomiting black' but refused to give the device to Samsung. (???) That Guy in China got his face cut by iPhone, not deCasa family who fainted gracefully on side of the bed.
Unlike those injured from iPhone explosions, all the so called victim of Samsung explosions seemed happy and fine. None of them are injured the way iPhone injured. However all these con artists all parroted same advertisement ”don’t sell it… what if happened to someone else... imagine if this happened in… imagine if this happen at..” as if they were paid by same director. And yes, magically these kind of con artists disappeared after Samsung made second recall.
In contrast, no matter how genuinely dangerous iPhone can be (scarring man’s face, burning legs, burning car, exploding in school) US media, CPSC, US airlines, US carrier, kept silent about it. I thought they all genuinely care about consumer safety #sarcasmintended.
So, I believe to encounter those paid drama, Samsung must go live streaming 30 days continuously charging 10000 galaxy note 7 under supervision of third party. Let the audience see, it won’t explode or melting. Leave the audience question themselves, what could lead all the recent hysteria in US media, US airplane, US train, and yes US users. It’s useless to focus to non-existent problem that even South Korea Government can’t figure it out.

So if Sammy wont make it in to diagnosing the N8 flaws,hence its been now weeks since process took place,whats the future of its other devices hold for the market?

So would they publish the results to the media if the flaws would be deprived from their production?Not the easy one for Sammy,huh?

Julliard, 25 Oct 2016So, why these so-called unsafe Note7 with 60% battery cap h... moreWell at least Samsung refuses to assure they won't explode. What about it is making you so confident. If Samsung is urging users to handover the Note 7 why are people so reluctant on proving that phones are fine. The company who made the phone doesn't want to give you the assurance, not once.

I am curious whether people interrested in the note7 would wait for the note8 (whatever it would be called) or go for iphone or more probably the pixel phone. I personally don't like the note series, I think it is way to big, but I feel bad for samsung, they didn't deserve this, and personally, i think this is sabotage by apple or other competitors. I also don't understand why apple fanboys are so happy, how does this make their life better, I personally am not a fan of anything, I had many phones in the past iphone, sony, samsung, all of them had things i liked and things i disliked, none of them were perfect. I think that for us, customers the more choices you have, the better, the stronger the competition between manufacturers the betters, if one of them is having problems that weakens the competition, no user has anything to win from it, regardless what brand one prefers.

If it is safe to just cap the battery then why need to recall? No more explosion so far. And S7 edge in the other hand decide to explode all of a sudden after so many many months of released. I smell sabotage. And it happened right after Note7 got discontinued.

Sadly people feel Samsung is cheap company but to be honest they are very humble

And i am a Google fanboy to be honest if you have that chain of thoughts in mind.
