    I didn't have one because I really don't like Samsung and that's not trying to start a fight. I just don't care for their products.

    I worry about my cousin because he has a Galaxy Note 7, but it didn't blow up during our road trip a few days ago, so maybe he's one of the lucky ones.

    i jumped ship after the galaxy s5, it was their last really good phone.

    on the LG V series bandwagon now - LG V10 is still great and the V20 is going to be even better.

    These will become very rare and more expensive in a couple of years. Smartphone and bomb. Multiplayer. :v

    No, it costs way above of what I am willing/able to pay for a smartphone. I would be legimately pissed off if I bought it obviously.

    they probably tried to rush their phone out and compete with the iPhone 7 and paid a massive price for it. this is such a big embarrassment for their mobile phone division(s).

    Does this mean they'll become rare (for the ones that didn't blow up)?

    You could write a note to Samsung, telling them this really blew up in their face.

    I really find my S7 Edge quite good, an excelent phone.
    But otherwise and I don't like Samsung at all.

    Also I'm kind of convinced that today a Google Pixel would be a better option than an S7, if you are about to buy.

    I have an old samsung hdtv and the gf has a really nice 5inch samsung phone. My impression of them is that of a high-end electronics manufacturer. Don't know if that's actually reality, but that's just my anecdotal impression of their brand.

    Hope these events don't cause them to go in a tailspin to nokia-land or worse.

    Man, I was gonna get one of those phones. Really glad I got my iPhone instead. Now I know people balk at Apple, but it's certainly better than being exploded ;O;

    Didn't they already recall all the old ones and switched them out?
