    There must be a serious design problem,more than a small sample of bad phones or components.

    'On Friday, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission urged owners of the smartphone to power down their Galaxy Note 7 devices and stop using them altogether.'

    This is a huge brand problem. Hard to recover from. Best to get the refund or replacement. Will be impossible to resell the current unit.

    Probably best to exchange the Note 7 for an iPhone.

    Yeah, after a federal agency, AT&T, and Samsung itself sent me a message telling me: "TURN IT OFF! STOP USING IMMEDIATELY!" I decided to exchange my phone sometime this coming week. Sheesh. A bunch of reactionaries. One article I read said they are NOT replacing the phones with Note7's they are, in the interim, giving people the Samsung Galaxy J-series until they can make more Note7's. So that means I'll have to go through two more switches and configurations. Needless to say, I'm ticked.

    After their big success with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, now Samsung has to deal with this. So disappointing when this kind of quality control issue is missed. Though at least they can make sure the S8 and variants won't have the same problem.

    We know that if it was Apple's iPhone , there would lawyers with class actions lawsuits for ...'lost work time, productivity and quality of life" against Apple.

    Good idea! Now i just need to think of some frivolous reason to file a lawsuit. How about "loss of productivity, emotional stress, fear of life-threatening equipment, failure to deliver, lemon law, blah, blah, blah."

    See what I mean? This came out today. Geez, talk about first world problems....


    "Boston law firm Block & Leviton today announced it has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple on behalf of iPhone Upgrade customers who are dissatisfied with how Apple handled iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus pre-orders last Friday.

    When customers who participate in the iPhone Upgrade Program went to pre-order an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, they were forced to reserve a device from a local Apple retail store rather than being able to make a traditional online purchase. Many retail stores did not have sufficient stock to meet demand, leaving some customers unable to select the model, color, or storage capacity they desired. "

    Dang! The two biggest phone makers ticking off their customers. What's next, autonomous cars that take us the long way because they were programmed by former cabbies?
