Got mine from the Nz Samsung online store, 

 

Was just waiting it out to see what was going to happen, As enjoy the note 7 too much to be without. 

 

Got a call from a private number today advising of the recall and that a J5 with a courier bag would be sent to my previous shipping address. 

 

J5 mine to keep and replacement due within 4 weeks. 

 

Good thing I still have my note 5.

I'm glad I decided to hang on to my note7. Sounds like a right mess trying to get a loan phone

Some guy's Note 7 exploded even when it's not being charged in Taiwan.

Looks pretty dangerous, don't think I'm gonna hold onto mine any longer.

三星新款手機Note 7在世界各地傳出爆炸災情,台灣部分也傳出要召回手機。沒想到還真的已經有苦主還沒換機,就已經遭受新手機「自殺式炸彈攻擊」

 

 

 

Holy Moly - would not have thought that!

Why do you say that - dam? (Although I think you mean 'damn').

First because amperex supplied only to china and over 70% of batterys for the note 7 was produced by SDI, the supplier that is reported to having the battery problem. So its no wonder why it was so massively recalled.

Second was this.
"Samsung smartphone business head Koh Dong Jin recently said that the recall will cost the company a "heartbreaking amount," with analysts saying that the figure could be somewhere around $1 billion."

I can't see it being a billion dollars. The media tend to blow these numbers up beyond any reasonable amount.

I am very torn as to what I am going to do next. I have been using a spigen magnetic air vent holder with my S6, and Note5 and Note7, but I note it's not recommended and makes a point of saying it will impede wireless charging, which it seems to, which is annoying given I just bought *3* wireless chargers!

 

I really LOVE how the Air Vent Magnetic Holder works, it's just so easy and quick, and reliable, but wireless charging is also useful. I noted that the Note7 got very hot whilst on the wireless charger and I am unsure if that's because of the plate that I have attached to the back of the phone itself.

I dont follow economics much but 1 billion doesnt sound far off.
So far they have sold 1 million phones, at $1000 before profit (we dont actually know what the cost of production is) thats 1 billion. These phones will not be able to be reused for sale. At least not right away and not at a big cost for a small return, glass is not easy to remove to access the battery and is not always successfull without damage. Cant be sold as new either so may only be used in warranty replacement units.
