Gets better and better, now FAA doesn't want Note 7 to be in use or charging on the planes
That's going to sink the phone until recall. Gosh, sorry for Samsung.

Yup this was a royal skew up.
Now the US and Samsung are telling people to just stop using their Note 7's period.
U.S. and Samsung tell Galaxy Note 7 owners: Power down now

Boy, I should have read this thread first before posting in a different one. I notice my S7 Edge get warm when charging and I never leave it plugged in for long after it completes its charge. Otherwise no issues with the phone at all.
What a mess for Samsung. After all the success of the Galaxy S7 series, this Note 7 fiasco could possibly wash all that out at year's end.
KevinJames, for as long as you've waited for this phone, it's unfortunate that the phone did not live up to expectations. After reading your main post, it surprised me the Note 7 did not deliver in a number of areas. I thought the Note 7 would be better than the S7 series, but apparently not.
@M in LA: It really is sad that the reality is such a huge disappointment. It seems that Samsung is no longer trying to impress. And now that the evidence seems to be that they shipped product they absolutely knew was faulty from the get-go, demonstrates they were paying Russian Roulette with their profits. There is no way they could not have known before hand that these things are defective.
From reviews I'm reading about the new iPhone 7, there are those who likewise feel Apple is resting on their laurels. Not sure what is driving this lazy attitude in phone makers. I'm wondering if it is the same thing car makers face. There is so little they can do but change (not necessarily "improve") the body design, so the car makers just "go with the flow" (or so it seems to me).
To me, the biggest tangible changes that can be improved in phones are:
1. Battery technology
2. Camera technology
3. Implementation of bluetooth 5
4. Improve all radios
5. Start augmenting cellular technology with satellites (not sure if this was ever done).
To me, glass and metal bodies are not important. If plastic and composite bodies are durable, I'm fine with it.
You would think, with all the good press and success of the S7 series, they would be more conscious of keeping the momentum going. I read an article that they took a chance, knowing the batteries may be an issue. Stupid fail on their part. I agree that there is some complacency going on. With Apple, I hope it's just about saving all the good stuff for the rumored iPhone 8 next year.
What I will say about Apple, though, is they did a great job with iOS 10. There are some significant improvements which make the OS so much better. I'm glad they put time into it. As I won't upgrade until sometime next year, I'm not too concerned about the iPhone 7.
I hope Android N launches soon on Samsung (Verizon) phones. It can only benefit the S7 Edge (and other phones slated for the update).
I also agree with your recommendations for what phone makers should pay attention to and implement.
I really don't know what to think at this point. I'm not really happy having the S7 Edge. It's a nice machine and all, but truly miss the accurate stylus. I've considered buying this stylus because my wife has one and loves it. But then, if Samsung comes through with a replacement quickly (unlikely), I will have wasted money.
I did missed the stylus and the physical keyboard from Palm at first, but you adapt to not having it
