Samsung Galaxy Note7 review: Thinking Big

16 August 2016
All great speeches start with carefully prepared notes. For yet another year Samsung has taken the role of a modern-day orator, pushing for a return to personal handwriting against the trend of detached digital text.

Yea had a note 7, and yes it got too hot to handle. So traded out with Samsung. My opinion, that wasn't the only goof up the company had. I had a s3 that burned at my garage sitting on a work bench doing nothing. I was a customer not the mechanic back in the bay talking to my mechanic about my car. What gets me, now these note 7s are COLLECTORS ITEMS being sold for unbelieveable prices. For WHAT. All companies have screwups and I think Samsung made their 2 billion back they lost. Oh well my old note 8 and my a21 is doing fine.

                    Yes, my Note7 was updated today without my concern although I put the auto update option off. Now I can charge its battery upto 60% only. Earlier it was 80% that was more or less sufficient for me for a whole day work.
                    My suggestion to Samsung is that they can disable the function of Fast-charging which may be safer for its battery, if they are really worried about! At 80% charge only, the Battery has by no means any chance to explode if it is charged in Normal mode, I trust.
                    When I was using my Note7, I have experienced that there is No heat-up issue. I'm quite confused if there are really any issue in the Battery of Note7.
                    I will be happy to know finally that it's Not a Sino-American conspiracy, or largely Google against Korean techno-giant Samsung... to turnish their dominance and image in smartphone business!.
                    When compared with iPhone7 Plus of my friend, it was clearly revealed that there could not be any comparison between Note7 and iPhone7 Plus, because Note7 was by far the best smartphone or phablet in the world now.

                          Consider putting in big bold text at the start of the review - "The Note 7 has been recalled and no longer deemed safe for use. Please return product to place of purchase as part of Samsung's Global Recall Program".

                            MysteryNote, 24 Oct 2016To be honest i think this was some conspiracy at work .... ... moreThe phone has already been deemed unsafe by the proper authorities. Rigged batch or not. Your friends are gonna be held responsible for anything that will happen with their note 7s.

                              My SAMSUNG GALAXY S7 EDGE went off unexpectedly and I am unable to fix it now although the battery life was still okay.
                              Is there any possibilities I will have to fix this phone. I need help.

                              Thank you,
