From a PR and marketing point of view they would be better served by letting this disaster fade into the mists of time. They should focus on the S8 and the future and not remind the public of their failure. 

 

 

 

 

Yup, coz fingers crossed but if any handset lights up - they will have another PR drama on their hands

I guess some of us were less phased by it than others. Stuff happens. If we punished companies on the back of one major disaster, the landscape would look VERY different and less advanced than it does now. 

 

Some of the largest technology companies in the world make these stuff ups on a seemingly daily basis. 

 

I don't know that many people who were put off that badly. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Note 7 conjures up negatives, it's always best to focus on positives and eliminate negatives. Memories of the Note 7 will place doubt in the minds of the consumer even if that doubt is unfounded. Compare it to say the auto industry GM reusing briefly the Viva name , imagine if Ford tried the Edsel again or the Brits try anything and everything from or associated with British Leyland. Better to cut loses and maximise efforts on the future.

 

 

Looks like the greenies has forced Samsungs hand in re-releasing this phone From the article in Stuff "The firm had been under pressure from environment rights group Greenpeace and others to come up with environmentally friendly ways to deal with the recovered Note 7s."

@MikeB4

 

Mike: Completely and totally OT but I have to say how much I love those words from the Anzac service that you have put in your current signature. They are truly beautiful and well-crafted. We are currently overseas for an extended period and away for Anzac Day this week - reading those words just now brought a lump to my throat. Some essence of Kiwi-ness.

You really want to buy that piece of crap?

 

 

It's not a piece of crap. It was a brilliant phone paired with a faulty battery. If I didn't get a free S8+, I'd seriously be looking at a GN7.

... Have you kept up with it at all? Battery went bomb because it was too big. They've put a new smaller battery in. Thus I am buying what is still the best phone (soon to be) available.

Technically an exploding battery, which has been replaced with a different one, in a phone that will be tested unlike any other before it, which is paired with best in class hardware.

freitasm: Yes, I tend to keep up-to-date with tech stuff. Still doesn't change my opinion.


Your opinion makes close to zero sense then

If you are opposed to Samsung selling them after fixing and testing them, are you suggesting they instead dump them into landfill? Even after they have stripped the relatively small amount of recyclable material?

 

Is it that you don't trust that Samsung has properly repaired them?

Correct. They've done it once and failed.

You asked "Have you kept up with it at all?" and my reply is yes, I do keep up-to-date and because I know their track record on getting this problem fixed on the second wave gives me no confidence on the third wave.

Not. The. Same. Thing

 

 

 

Second wave they hadn't actually identified the problem. Now they have. Now they've added in new tests to ensure it doesn't happen again.
