So, what is going to happen to the millons of Notes? They won't have a fire sale 😞 I hope a dirt cheap black market emerges.
Is any outlet still selling them so i can buy one, then immediately get a refund?

This is the headline from the WSJ

 

 

 

Samsung to Permanently Discontinue Galaxy Note 7 Smartphone

 

 

 

 

I'm afraid that's the final nail in the coffin. Engadget has also confirmed the same.

It will be interesting to see if there will be an early release of a Note 8 alongside the S8 now.

I am really not sure what in the hell to do for a new phone.

If you're not too much used to the pen, S7 edge would be the next best option

I'm thinking over my options too:

 

  • In the premium range i'm looking at a Pixel XL or an LG V20
  • Also looking at a One Plus 3 purely because it's a device with premium specs at less than half the cost (which should do me well till the Note 8 - banking on an earlier release)

Really don't think getting the S7 or S7 Edge this late into their product cycle is the right option...

I was never going to spend the outrageous price for a Note 7, but I love my note 4.

 

 

 

Not sure yet whether I should grab a note 5 while they are still available or hope than at some stage in the future a premium phone with a stylus will cost less than $1000

 

 

 

Cheers - N

 

 

 

ps. Freitasm - WSJ link is paywalled.

Yes - me too, unfortunately. The LG V20 looks fantastic but it's not clear if/when it will be released here - and I'm not prepared to buy a parallel imported one. Not interested in iPhone 7. S7 Edge would probably be okay but a bit meh after the N7. 

 

 

 

Will be be interested to hear what you end up doing.

Well i do feel sorry for all of you, there is nothing really around that could replace what the note had (unless you go old school with a note 4 or 5).

 

It also feels a bit more real when it happens to someone in NZ.

Hopefully supero.co.nz will not mess me around refunding for my handset. I will either look at HP Elite X3 which has gotten good reviews or an iPhone 7 Plus.




Do whatever you want to do man.

I notice on XDA some people are all like "nah i'm keeping mine because ........." they are also disabling updates to the device so they can't be locked to 60% charge.

 

But hope they know that any fire etc will not be covered by their insurance companies due to the recall.

 

It's just not worth the risk in keeping the phone when you family and house can burn down.

RIP N7. You burned brightly, and left us too soon.

They jinxed it by skipping a number, I wonder if they should call the next one the note 6.

Apple must be delighted....!!

 

 

 

 

Google will be just as delighted, Pixel anyone?





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.
